A Two Man Wrecking Crew


Recommended Posts

Defensive ends Haason Reddick and Brian Burns have been a two-men wrecking crew all season. Reddick, through 11 weeks, has collected an NFC-high 10.5 sacks—behind only Cleveland’s Myles Garrett (13.0) and Pittsburgh’s T.J. Watt (12.5) for the league lead. And Burns’ 7.0 quarterback takedowns aren’t that far off.

Reddick and Burns are also amongst the best “defeats” artists thus far. Defeats, measured by Football Outsiders, qualify as any of the following:

  • -A tackle that results in a loss of yardage, including sacks.
  • -Any play that results in a turnover, including tipped passes which are then intercepted.
  • -Any tackle or tipped pass that leads to a stop on third or fourth down.

And the pair ranks third and fourth in the stat.

To cover all of our pass-rushing, backfield-disrupting bases—Reddick heads into Week 12 with 12 tackles for a loss, 16 quarterback hits and 31 total pressures. Burns has recorded 10, 13 and 33, respectively, in those categories.

Yeah. They destroyed us with the outside zone stretch. The blueprint is out on beating this defensive line.

As long as Snow coaches to the Panthers weaknesses when the Panthers attacking strengths keep getting them the lead. Snow is adamant that his soft zone defense with 4 man rush can be effective with the lead. The DBs are not lockdown players who can cover for 6 seconds. The players are not disciplined enough to maintain their responsibilities.

When Snow begins coaching to his players strengths, then teams will get wrecked for 4 quarters. Snow wants his defense to be something they are not when they have the lead.
