  1. After Sunday's victory over the Green Bay Packers, Kawann Short was asked by the media if this Carolina Panthers 8-0 start was a surprise. "This is what we expected from day one" Short replied with an unwavering confidence. Short's emergence as a premier under tackle, and even occasional defensive end, is a huge reason why the Panthers are currently undefeated. For example, it was Short's pressure from the defensive end position that forced an intentional grounding call against the Houston Texans earlier this year. Without that penalty, the Panthers could easily have one loss. Kawann's latest game winning play was a pressure up the middle on Aaron Rodgers, who was forced to hurry throw the ball. That pass ended up in the hands of Thomas Davis. Without Short, that interception would not have happened. A Panthers victory would have remained in doubt. Short's play resembles that of Warren Sapp. Relentlessly aggressive with a quickness that no man his size should possess. Short has 6 sacks this season, tied with Cincinnati's All-Pro defensive tackle Geno Atkins. Together, hey lead all defensive tackles in sacks.... and most defensive ends. Thats right, big named DE's and OLB's like Bruce Irvin and Julius Peppers have fewer sacks than Kawann Short. Short has 3 more tackles, and 5 more assisted tackles than Atkins currently. I would say that is at least a Pro Bowl performance in the first half of this season, if not All Pro. Will we continue to see Short dominate the line of scrimmage and contribute to an undefeated record? Could be. Short does not plan on sitting on his laurels anytime soon. "We still have to stay humble, disciplined, and come out ready to work."

  3. Kawann Short continues to build the case that he is Carolina's best defensive lineman. Against the Bengals, he had 5 tackles and two QB hits. Short has picked up his game in run support, helping to fill the void that Greg Hardy left. Even though he was credited with oly 5 tackles, his presence forced the runner to redirect frequently. Because of him, guys like Kuechly and Davis were able to clean up nicely. As far as pass rush goes, Short is more effective than anyone else on the Panthers roster. Unfortunately, Short is also held very frequently. The following shot was taken during the play of the Bengals final touchdown. A blatant hold, with the offensive lineman's hands clearly outside the numbers and wrapped around Short. If not for this hold, a sack was inevitable. Sadly, it went uncalled. There is no other player on the defense that should have you more excited in terms of potential.
