Linebacker Thomas Davis was explaining how he got two sacks in Sunday's 35-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, giving all the credit to Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott for putting him in the right position.

"You don't have to say that because I'm standing here," shouted McDermott, about 15 feet away.

Thomas continued to wax eloquent on the 39-year-old coach as he dressed in the visitors locker room at the Minneapolis Metrodome.

"He's a defensive guru," he said.

"I heard that," McDermott said. "You don't have to say that, man."he Carolina defense among the NFL's elite.

Davis turned to his coach and replied, "Listen to me. I'm not saying this because you're right there."

 

And we were ready to run him out of town after the first year. Amazing what having productive players can do for your defense.

Rivera is probably the best or at least top 2 defensive minds in the league. McDermott is a good coach. I love his energy and motivation. Dude really knows defense as well

You can't blame McDermott for the previous 2 seasons defensive woes. I mean the man was given Terrell McClain and Fua as his two DTs.

I remember munnerlyn saying somewhere(I think on the radio, not sure though) earlier this offseason that the scheming/game planning was pretty much all McDermott just like the past 2 seasons

I hate the thought of losing McDermott in the event Rivera is fired at seasons end.

Lol what was it we used to call him?  Sean McDumbass?  McDerp?  I honestly can't even remember.

 

Defense has come a loooong way since 2011.  Granted we had no LBers, no DTs, Hardy wasn't the Kraken yet, and no secondary outside of Gamble.

Rivera's last press conference he said himself that he tries not to speak in defensive meetings and tries to allow the coaches to talk through game plans on their own.

So many accolades for our defense is a good thing.  But I would like to wait and see how we do against some of the better offenses in the league before I am convinced.  If the saints and patriots torch us, then its much ado about nothing.

McDermott got a raw deal in Philly.  He'll get some HC interviews if the defense keeps playing at the level they have been.
