Topics I've Started

Defensive Ends

09 May 2014 - 11:15 PM

DG is obviously trying build the most intimidating front 7 in the league, and I think the Defensive End position is shaping up to look a lot like the 07 Giants superbowl team. Strahan, Tuck, and Umenyiora had 9, 10, and 13 sacks for the season, with 20 more sacks from the rest of the team. 

 

Hardy, Johnson, and Ealy along with Hall/Addison make a damn good D-end group. Potentially great.


Smitty on Dan Patrick show Tuesday morn

17 March 2014 - 06:06 PM

not sure what time, but just thought some of y'all might want to know. 

 

ps. If Steve Smith related material is no longer Panther material then please disregard, but in my book 89 will always be a Panther.


Cam on Dan Patrick show Mon. morning

16 February 2014 - 06:56 PM

Heads up, Florio will interview Cam tomorrow morning in case any of y'all haven't completely checked out from football season yet.


Philly weather next Saturday night

30 December 2013 - 09:27 AM

Gonna be cold for the swamp rats up in Philadelphia.

 

Friday when they arrive: Snowing, high 19; low 11.

Saturday: high 28; low 22.

 

Probably doesn't mean much, but its sure different from turf and 72.


Discipline

03 December 2013 - 07:05 PM

I think the discipline of this team might be the biggest strength. I don't recall a Panther team with so few penalties or personal fouls in quite some time. (08' comes to mind tho, not having a single pass interference call until the playoff game if I remember correctly?)

 

It has become obvious that the players are doing their jobs and trusting the man next to them. Greg Hardy is a prime example of a disciplined player. The San Fran game was the defining moment of this season when I truly recognized how disciplined this team is.

 

On paper, our secondary should get torched every game... This group just simply has a higher IQ than we give them credit for. (no offense Josh Norman, but thats why you don't play).

 

Frank Alexander being stupid early in the season and maybe a Mike Mitchell laying the hammer a time or two are the only times this team has been called for personal fouls or unnecessary roughness. Those 15 yarders are debilitating, but they are few and far between with this squad.

 

For such a relatively young team it is refreshing to have some veteran leaders and a coaching staff that demand smart play, and for me it hasn't gone unnoticed.
