Ben Tate (Who had nearly 1000 yards)
Owen Daniels (Who had seven more receptions and over 100 more receiving yards than Olsen)
Whitney Mercilus (A rookie who may be just as good as Kuechly - it's a push, but it's certainly possible)
Glover Quinn Jr.
You can argue with this a bit, but overall it's a very similar team to the Panthers in my opinion. They have a shutdown corner, good linebackers, a solid receiving tight-end, a few respectable defensive lineman, a two fast/reliable backs and a nice fullback, and a potential hall of fame receiver.
And before you argue "Pierre Thomas sucks! He's no damn good!" he averaged 5.1 yards a carry, and they have a good three-headed rushing attack developing in their own right. Will Smith and Vilma could replace Hawthorne (who has 100+ tackles in the past three seasons) and Thomas on this list, and ultimately the only weak player would be Jenkins, and he's not bad.
Doug Free (He's solid, albeit not Gross manning the LT position)
They have a lot of unproven talent in the secondary, but I think every Panther fan before the draft secretly was hoping Claiborne would fall to us, not Kuechly. Doug Free isn't great, but he's not bad. The rest are definitely talents I would love to have.
Thomas Decoud/Ray Edwards/Matt Ryan/Dunta Robinson
This is a stacked team and I couldn't decide who to fill that 12th slot with...
Jason Peters (He's not healthy, but he was the best LT in football last year without question (in my mind, of course))
(You can also add Brent Celek, OJ Atogwe, DeMeco Ryans, or MIke Patterson to fill in Peters's shoes)
I'm finished, but the Steelers, Ravens, Giants, Bengals, Chargers (debatably), Packers, Bears, Patriots, Jets, Bills (think of their free-agents), 49ers, maybe Chiefs, Broncos, Titans, Lions all have twelve players.
That leaves the Browns, Jaguars, Raiders, Seahawks (besides Lynch, Rice, Clemons, and their corners/safeties, I can't think of anyone else), Cardinals (same as Seattle, although at different positions), Vikings, Bucs (although they're getting there), Dolphins, Redskins, Colts, and Rams who can't match us according to your rubric.
I may be wrong, but this isn't the way we should be thinking moving forward, especially if you look at the list of players of the five teams I analyzed: The Eagles, Falcons, Saints*, and Cowboys, who have more than enough to excel, and they under-accomplished (two didn't even make the postseason, another only scored two points in the postseason, and another lost a shootout against Alex Smith). The Texans, on the other-hand, had a lot of talent, although some star linebackers were hurt (and their quarterback/wide receiver were injured for major parts of their season), and they over-accomplished. I think, if anything, solid depth eclipses star players on certain positions.
Before Tl;dr, basically I nitpicked some rosters, found a lot of good players and refuted the original poster's claim. I'm not playing troll, just being realistic/objective.
