ive played with them a few times this year, my only complaint is the secondary, i love godfrey because im a fan of speedy strong safties, martin is ok, he has great catching abilty and height.sometimes i put him in at the number 1 CB, because lately ive been playing a lot of cover 2 and a lot of the top online players love utilizing tosses, so i usually have a safety at the CB spot to get off that block and stop that toss. and then i'll put gamble @ the FS. or, now i bleieve they have some hidden gems in the secondary, im
@ work right now so forgive me if i dont get the names right. but hogan and thomas, one of them plays SS postion exceptionally well, i think its thomas, he has decent tackling and strength, its not the best of the best of course, but its exceptional, and bewtween one of those two they can catch very well, catching in the high 60's low 70s and decent zone coverage. the strenght in th panthers though comes from that notorious LB core, i call them the ''bemuda triangle'', beason,thomas,anderson.now, theres some options here.the panthers have the uncanny abilty to play the 46 as is w/o the speed package effectively, theyhave the abilty to play the bear effectively, 335 and 46 bear.you could put thomas and anderson @ the ends, and charles johnson and mcclain and the DTs, and use gamble,munnerlyn (i despise), hogan, ands thomasfor your 46 speed. or leave the depth chart as is and play a normal 46.if you choose to play 46 speed, be advised that evenm though the LBs are fast. they are not strong enough, meaning if thery were DEs in your scheme, then of course they would do wonders against a mobile QB, why? because their strength is finesse and not power.the can swim they @$$ off. but they arent like a ngata, or a hali or a dorsey,then of course you would have to apply WFcolonels philosophy of the 4-3 by slanting your d-line to get the best results from your ends.beason of course is your mr. do everthing LB so no questions their.these LBs will fly towards the ball a lot.so here's my pros and cons overall about carolina defensively.
Pros-.good LB depth gaither and dillard and connor are underrated, fast Lbs, versatile defensively and offensively (you can use ther full house offense with them effectively, FB slam + J. Stewart=results), can tackle very well.
Cons-while they may be fast, they lack strength; they are also soft in the middle for the DT position, many people put johnson at DT, but his tackling suffers greatly because he's not playing his natural position.munnerlyn's fast but his height will make you pay against tall WR such as dez bryant, lloyd, sidney rice etc.
hope this helps man.
