Irvin compares the Panthers defensive depth to Seattle in 2013

Recommended Posts



There's a lot to be excited about for this season.  If our defense makes it up to those sorts of standards that BI mentions, and Cam is and stays healthy, we win the SB.

I hope the secondary preform the same way as Seahawks did. 

Yeah we're missing their Earle Thomas. Their most important piece will likely be played by Gaulden on the Panthers. Not quite the same level...

It has the potential to be very good. People have to play up to their expectations, coaches have to put players in positions to succeed and we need to stay healthy.

I'm pretty sure we are missing their entire secondary. Not sure any on our DB list would crack their starting lineup. Possibly as a nickel. I think we have the ability to be pretty decent secondary unit but that Legion on Boom unit was INSANE that year and for years after.

Honestly, Bradberry is tailor-made for Seattle's press and bail version of cover 3. Press is what he does best. Playing 10 yards off the LOS is what he does worst and seems to be what we ask of him the most.

I really like Bradberry as a physical corner.  If we can get away from the idea of Left and Right and go to the concept of matchups, having a Bradberry to pair with DJax gives us an excellent combination for our first two.

Absolutely. We have two corners who can both be very good at what they do, but their strengths and weaknesses are practically opposites. We can match up really well there against most teams if we actually match up. But if we play strict left/right then a lot of teams can move their WRs around to create major match up problems for us. Just look at N.O. for example. If they line up to create Ginn/Bradberry and Thomas/Jackson match ups... well, we better hope the pass rush gets home.

Where does he fit though? In Browner's spot?

actually he said the defensive front was comparable, not the whole defense.

"Speaking with Scott Fowler of The Charlotte Observer during minicamp, Irvin, unprompted, compared the Panthers' defensive line depth to the Seattle Seahawks' D that smothered teams en route to the Super Bowl XLVIII title."

That debate(whole defense) came from a comment here, not from what Irvin said.

I hope he is right   What fan wouldn’t?

Let’s see how they do against the Rams before comparisons. are made

Of course Rivera did very well against McVey’s offense when Sean was the OC of the Redskins but the Redskins didn't have near the weapons the Rams have
