Kuechly deserves it. Love me some Wagner, but he doesn't have the amount of responsibilities Kuechly has.
Panthers are turning into a team with tons of talent, and no direction.
No direction? We lost TWO games by more than 6 points. We could've easily went 11-5 with better luck. Finished the season with a top 10 defense. Go ahead and please name those CBs wed featured for the last six or so games. Or name just one safety.
Cam was gaining steam by seasons end and it'll carry over into next season.
Gettleman will direct this team, moves will be made to fix our biggest problem... our cap. Gamble will be gone, Deangelo, Beason, Gross will be needed to restructure. If we had Hurney at GM id say we had no direction but I have faith in Gettleman.
If this is to me, I didn't say Kuech didn't deserve it. I just said its ridiculous to say Wagner isn't even in the conversation.
Its not aimed at one particular person. I'm just saying. I've been watching Panthers games and Seahawks games all season. Your ENTIRE defense is ruthless, not one person stands out. AND if I had to pick one person that did, it'd be Sherman. Or Clemons. Or Branch. Or Thomas.
Wagners numbers are cute, but he has NOWHERE near the influence on a defense like Kuechly had. Keek controlled audibles, fired up the crowd, and inspired teammates. He also played olb for the first few games, if he had played in his natural mlb, he probably would've shattered Willis season record.
I'm more excited for the Keek pick than I am the Cam pick, he's that good.
