Shaq Thompson deserves some love

It looked like he finally played like he had the confidence in himself that the Panthers have always had in him.

It also is provably somewhat to do with not having Luke’s shadow over him. He’s able to fully take charge and be himself now. Not discrediting Luke or anything. Just saying he had really big shoes to fill last year. Now that it’s a little more removed he probably feels a little freer.

I don't know if it was just the number switch or what, but he looked like a different player out there today. I've been just as tough on him but I'm hoping today was a sign of things to come.

I'm hoping it's coaching.

Rhule has assembled a staff of teachers. 

This was, by far, the best game I've seen Thompson play for us. He actually looked like a good LB.

Not sure if $18-20 mil a year for a LB will be a bargain. His 8m this year is looking good, but contract as a whole, I’m not sure anyone can really live up to just idiotic though not his fault. I agree he played well. Problem is he earned a lot of great money being good, but it’s in the past. Something will have to be done about his contract at the end of the year. Let’s see if he can keep it up and be worth most his money.
