Panthers Officially Lead NFL In Sacks

31 December 2013 - 12:38 AM

Didn't see it posted here but hey why not celebrate it?
60 sacks on the season to pull ahead of Buffalo at 57.


Last year if I recall the Rams and Bengals tied at 53.



One of many testaments to this incredible defense that Rivera has built.  McDermott leaving or not, great effort for our defense to lead us to an NFC South title.

Jonathon Martin

Apparently Martin has been pranked and bullied by Dolphins teammates to the point where he won't be playing for them.  I've never seen or heard of something like this happening before, does anyone know if he can become a free agent and maybe we make a run at him.  I've talked to a sportswriter who is a friend of mine (and a Phins fan) who feels Martin has panned out fine on the field and is a quality player.

My Reasons for Optimism

30 August 2013 - 12:21 PM

1.  The D-line being infused with sexy.


2.  The depth and surprisingly opportunistic play of the secondary.


3.  A good start to preseason! 3-1, not bad.  We seemed to be in pretty good control of the games we won as well.  We also gave ZERO hints about the type of offense we are going to run.  Even the most conservative power running games don't run it straight up the gut like that every play.  They always mix in power formations, off tackle runs, counters, stretches, etc.  The play calling was so unrealistically stupid that it simply cannot be what we plan on running, I flat out refuse to believe it.


4.  Most importantly, and what I think will push all those close games from the past 2 years into wins this year, is what Gettleman stated was the biggest problem with this roster.  It wasn't DT, it wasn't WR and it wasn't the OL (although 2 of those are still very real issues), it was the bottom half of the roster.  Backups and special teams baby.  We've been damn near dead last in special teams since Smith was doing returns for us.  We miss critical kicks, we blow coverage on returns, we have dud punts at inopportune times.


Think about it, all those years with Hurney we always had so much optimism because our team always looked star studded and loaded with quality starters.  We were a team that always looked nice on paper, we always had well graded drafts by "experts" and it always seemed to be a team you'd want on madden.  Man though many of our backups had no business on being anywhere but on a practice field, and in turn our special teams suffered.  Now I don't expect our STs to leap out of gate and go from abysmal to best in the league, but I do expect them to be able to provide occasional  sparks and to not blow games for us.  They've impressed all pre season, and ST players don't phone it in during pre-season as they are all guys battling for spots.
