Panthers 9th Rated Team "In the Trenches."

3

As you can see in the table on the right side of this link, the Panthers are the only team with a straight 'A' for their offensive line. That puts them tops in the league. But, as many have pointed out, the question marks on the D-Line (C- or tied for 31st) drags their overall rating down to 9th.

The video quality is not great, but watch the whole video, or just fast-forward to 1:48...look at the burst. If you haven't had a chance to see Armanti play--brace yourself. If Jeff Davidson can find a way to get him the ball, he should have no problem making an immediate impact.

Three More Rookies Signed

Hardy, Pugh, and McClain have signed their contracts. I saw an interesting blog entry from Steve Reed on Hardy...apparently he was beating the rest of the D-lineman by 15-20 yards in all the 100 yards gassers the Panthers were doing at the close of OTAs. Hardy even put in a few extra sprints with the WRs and DBs, and was finishing in front of a few of those guys, too. Reed thinks Hardy has flashed the kind of athleticism that might make you forget about, well, that other guy.

NFC South chat and some Moore vs Clausen

3

Love the question from Scott that was answered at 1:40PM.... Scott from Clayton, NC writes: "Matt Moore finished the year great last year. He started a little nervous, but once he settled down, looked awesome. He was making great throws, smart decisions, and had to defenses starting to stay honest. Carolina backed off the passing game in both wins of the Vikings and the Giants. They barely threw the ball in the second half of the Giants game and let JStew run it because they were so far ahead. Why is everyone so against Matt Moore and up for Clausen?" Pat Yasinskas answers: "Name recognition? Hey, I think Moore's earned a shot and Panthers will give him a shot. If he has good preseason, he'll open as the starter and can keep the job as long as he plays well." No, Pat did not BOLD the "name recognition" part--I did. I think he hit it on the head with that...."I know who Jimmy Clausen is. He must be the better player!" says the casual NFL fan.

Panthers very, very young and inexperienced

1

The average age of the roster is currently 24.56 years. The Panthers have to be one of the youngest, if not the youngest team in the league. NOTE: This average was calculated without the ages of our "specialists." Food for thought, nothing more.

Panthers draft grade a B-, then given stern warning...

Perhaps the most telling quote: "Bottom Line: Added some quality players and lots of guys you've heard of, but this team could be in major trouble along the defensive line due to its draft approach." I have to agree. Say what you want about the guys at the DT position, but the only thing they have proven is that they are no strangers to injured reserve. For years the Panthers have been able to mask their deficiencies on the D-line because Julius Peppers commanded double teams. With Pep gone, and no one but a bunch of "guys" on the D-line, who is going to consistently get to the QB? Who is going to keep centers and guards off of Jon Beason? Who is going to penetrate the A-gaps and blow up plays in the backfield? For me, too many questions remain along the defensive line. Without question, the direction of the Panthers will change due to the decisions made during this year's draft. 5 of the 10 players added are pieces to the passing-game puzzle. In my mind, this will only further mask defensive deficiencies--by adding weapons in the passing-game, and choosing to not address needs in the interior of the D-line. This traditionalist prefers the hard-hat approach that John Fox brought to Carolina after an abysmal 1-15 season (a season in which we emphasized the passing-game). This approach, more specifically, is to run the ball and stop the run. If the first three games of the 2009 season proved anything, it was that our D-line WITH an All-Pro DE, was the worst unit against the run in the entire league. So if stopping the run is not a priority, let's hope this emphasis on adding weapons in the passing-game does not completely obscure our "hard-hat" identity. OC Jeff Davidson has been known to lose games with his play-calling (pass-happy Dallas and Buffalo games come to mind). With two top 5 backs, does this draft signify the unwillingness to view them both as long-term Panthers. I sincerely hope not.

Panthers DFL in sacks while blitzing on 3rd down

2

Last year on 3rd down, while sending 5 or more rushers, the Panthers only recorded 1 sack. That ties them for the fewest in the NFL with St Louis and Jacksonville, according to Pat Yasinskas, ESPN's NFC South writer. This stat is a little concerning. With the loss of Julius Peppers, their finest rushing end, and Damione Lewis, their finest rushing tackle, the Panthers will need to create pressure by blitzing. Trying to rely on only the front four, as John Fox likes to do, is not going to put enough pressure on opposing quarterbacks. This number has to go up significantly if the Panther's defense plans on getting off the field at some point.
