Is Denzel Perryman the Carolina Panthers’ most underrated player?

Hes a helluva upgrade over Whitehead and Carter, although Carter is a good back/rotational guy.

Kind of hard to be great when the shadows of Luke are still on the field.  We were spoiled for 8 years with an amazing linebacker.  

No matter how well he does everyone is going to wish Luke was still there.

Perryman does quality as a pretty significant upgrade at a position that was a point of need for us.
 
Jermaine Carter did a respectable enough job at middle linebacker once Tahir Whitehead was finally benched last season. That said, Perryman has a far more impressive resume, notably his skills around the ball.
 
Perryman is a quality linebacker who should definitively improve our young defense that needs a little more experience.

Perryman's biggest issue is health. If he can stay healthy, I think he can become a guy we keep around and plays well for us.

It's Haason Reddick by a landslide. We have a guy on the roster who had 12.5 sacks last season - literally the 4th most sacks in the NFL last season - and virtually no one is talking about him. Wild.

Most of his sacks were in one game. I don’t know how consistently he performed the rest of the season.

Well, we are about to get an up close look at how consistently he performs in a few months.

True he wasn't ultra consistent. If he was, we would have had to pay more.  That said ... He didn't start until week 6, had 7 games with at least 1 sack (5 as a starter), 3 games with forced fumbles, and 16 qb hits.  So he was getting to the QB more than just one game.

    • And you've had this one where you obviously have reading comprehension issues. In other words, do your research next time or shut the f-ck up.   Fair?   Good.
    • I feel you bro. I spent most of my adolescent life in Camp Lejeune NC.  The son of a US Marine.  My father being from Baltimore and baseball and football were the major sports i grew up with.  NBA and ABA was not as popular as it is now.  Baltimore back then had Unitas and the Robinson's in baseball.  So life was good. 1984 all that changed as far as football went.  I never followed the Colts to Indy so I was basically a fan without a team.  I followed the Giants mostly because LT went to school with my brother (he was a walk on Safety for UNC and had a couple of cool stories about LT in practice) and my 1st wife was from Long Island, NY. I loved NC and always called it home so when Carolina got the Panthers and later the Hornets these became my favorite teams and win/lose or draw I have always been a fan.  I know in the early days of the Panthers the Redskins, Steelers, Cowboys and even the Falcons had major roots in our fan base.  Over the years many have jumped ship to the Panthers and our Carolina fan base is a little more loyal and we have less loyalty to those listed above. I was watching NFL Live yesterday and they were talking about the Panthers Defense. Marcus Spears pointed out what I think makes our defense so dynamic.  He said how crazy athletic we were.  IMO that is the key to our defense.  So many fast, athletic and smart players on the field.   Another take was when they were talking about Rhule during his press conference.  They mentioned how deeply he knew about every aspect of a play or decision.  He is completely in-charge and knows every in and out of this team.
