The rest of the NFL: you are on notice

 

We've got the sophomore sensation Luke Kuechly and rejuvenated to the max'd Thomas Davis leading this squad.

We will beat you to submission.

This defense right now is built off of an incredible foundation with a ferocious win every down attitude.  

 

Also, consider how young they are; this D is yout'ful:

 

Monsters Inc.

Hardy (25)

Johnson (27)

Star (23)

KK (24)

Addison (26)

D'wan (32, with a lot in the tank)

Alexander (23)

 

LB Fleet:

Kuechly (22)

Davis (30) 

Klein (22)

Blackburn (30) 

 

Ms & Co. in the back:

Mitchell (26)

Melvin White (23)

Munnerlyn (25)

Lester (25, small sample size so far but worth a shout)

Mikell (33; not young but playing damn well and proving to be a light for the others)  

 

This is a squad built for a longterm stay and a consistent top NFL group for 4+ years easy.  As long as Cam is doing what he can on the other end, we have the potential to be a consistent playoff team.  Yes, I know, one game at a time...but the potential is undoubtedly there.

For sure.  I was thrown off at first because as a Raider there seemed to be flags but they were really just disguises over his tenacity and ruthlessness.  If I feel as good at years end, he's one to lock up for longer no doubt.

I sometimes forget just how young Charles Johnson was when coming into the league. Hard to believe he's still only 27. Seems like he should be 32 or something at this point.

Yea that'd be cool.  One will come to life eventually.  

 

This team sure as hell has an identity now.  A stalwart D and at a minimum, a capable offense built around Cam Newton.  

 

49ers have a tough D.  I said it in another thread, when our offense is clicking, we're blowing teams out, when they don't we're still winning.  That's a playoff team.
