There have been some great defensive front 7s in Panthers history with some elite, hall of fame d-ends and 3-4 outside linebackers. I can't 100% say this is the best line in Panthers history. That said, no one, not Greene/White/Peppers none of the great players we've had have ever had a 15 sack season
Hardy tied the team record of 15 sacks. Kevin Greene also had a 15 sack season with the Panthers.
