This team is loaded with player that make a difference.

 

Who are the Core players you keep no matter what

 

Obviously 

 

Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly our team captains on both sides of the ball.   Our franchise players offense and defense.

 

RB Williams..... though older he is more reliable

TE Olsen

OL Kalil and Silatolu (though injured)

DT Star 

DE Johnson

LB Kuechly

DB Mitchell

K Gano

 

While you want to keep the hole group in tact these are the players I think are our core players.

 

I love J. Gross he has been a Panther through thick and thin but he is getting long in the tooth and shouldn't be considered a core player anymore.

Hardy does too many things on that D-Line not to be considered a Core Player.

 

PAY THE MAN!

Yep, Hardy is earning his contract.  Not sure how G-man is gonna pull it off, but he's gotta figure it out.

I love the Kraken and you are right he does many things for this team.  Would you let Johnson go to keep him? 

 

You can only have so many core players.

I wouldn't call Silatolu a core player yet.

Once again...I would love to see us keep every player including TD..

 

TD will stay a Panther till he retires.  I don't think he will ever leave this team.  Maybe not a core player but an outstanding LB.

 

One from each level except OL and you can have two.

I agree with the sentiment that Hardy is a core player.  DG needs to do what he can to retain his services without hamstringing us for when Cam and Luke need to be resigned.  I don't know if that's possible but I have confidence Hardy will be here for a long time.

Core players can be relied on to make big plays, be leaders, and make others around him better. Hardy and Mitchell are clearly in that discussion. They make the team better and they HAVE to be re-signed.

Id say TD is core.

Hes been here long, playing at a high level, and went through more adversity than anyone by far.

Rivera is a distant 2nd

This offseason worries me... I just hope we don't lose Hardy or Mitchell.  Remember that Mitchell is only here on a cheap 1-year deal.  He's gonna have to get paid this offseason if we're keeping him.

To me Core guys are guys that if we didn't have them we have to change how we play the game.

 

Cam Newton - Without him at QB we are completely different on offense.

 

Luuuuuuuke - Best LB in the NFL and he never comes off the field.  His backup is dodo.

 

Charles Johnson - Big money brings it and I think he's still better than Hardy and has more experience.

 

Death Star - The difference between last years D and this year is Star.  His push in the middle is incredible.  It frees to Luke to be even better and give the DE the chance for one on ones and the QB never has a pocket to step into.  I think he's DROTY and will be the best DT in the league by in a few years if not next year.

 

Jordan Gross - People say he's old but take him off that line and we're in a world of poo. 

 

Steve Smith - He's not what he once was but he still gets double teams and when it's go time he shows up.  This team needs his leadership and passion.

 

Mike Tolbert - Some may call me crazy but I think Mike is out best RB.  His style of running fits our offense perfectly.  He's almost unstoppable on short downs and around the goalline.  He's also got very fast and light feet and can cut like a smaller man.  He's also has really good hands.  D-lo is really good.  Stewart is really good but we've seen them go down and we keep on moving.  We lose a lot more that can't be replaced in Tolbert.

 

Everyone else in my eyes we could lose and still be a great team.  There are some other really good guys I love on this team like Kalil or Mitchell, or hte Kracken but I tried to keep it to guys that would cause us to have to drastically alter our game plans if we lost.
