In Topic: Best Draft Class in Panthers history. .

24 January 2015 - 09:13 AM

May be the best year for rookies in Panther history, but we can't tell if it's the best draft class yet. One Julius Peppers, one Steve Smith, one Cam Newton, one Luke Kuechly could trump an entire class of one year wonders.

 

But... man it does look promising!

Pardon me. I have rediscovered my decorum. Carry on.

 

Much too late...

In Topic: Strickland on Ealy (your first off-season fluff piece).

22 January 2015 - 10:36 AM

I am glad that he started putting things together down the stretch. I was excited when we drafted him being the homer Mizzou fan that I am, as I saw the tools of an every down DE at the next level. He made things look effortless at times, and put great presser on the QB without being flashy or really having any go to pass rush moves.

 

The way he is built and the type of game he will grow into, he favorably compares to Hardy/Tuck. Just needs that NFL weight training regimen to reach the strength his frame allows. Will be a power rusher which allows him to play inside and out. Very versatile.

 

I was initially looking at him down the road following Johnson's footsteps and being paired with Hardy...but that is looking less and less likely.

 

Glad he is a Panther.

 

I don't know...

 

Hardy really is an athletic freak, similar to a Julius Peppers. Not sure Ealy is in the same boat. I think he's more like a CJ than a Hardy.
 


In Topic: Hardy is going to come back on a cheap one year deal this offseason

Hardy is a huge part of this team's ability to pressure the QB. He led the team in sacks last season, playing primarily as a RDE. Gettleman wants to bring him back, he's just not sure if he can.

 

CJ is easier to replace then Hardy, and he's older and more expensive. To say Hardy is done in Carolina, is more of an emotional statement than a logical one. Sorry to burst everyone's Luke/TD/Star/KK bubble, but Kraken may have been the best defensive player on the team in 2013. He was certainly top 2 in importance.
