Fans Vote: Panthers Defensive stats tell a story (or don't)


ESPN's 2009 stats for Panther defensive players below the jump.  Stats can be misleading, I know.  For instance, a DB making lots of tackles could mean his man is catching a lot of passes.  In terms of tackles, what is obvious from these numbers is that we didn't  or couldn't rely on the DL even last year, other than to occupy blockers and let the LBs operate.  Our defense was led by the LBs and DBs, along with Peppers.  His stat line isn't big on tackles, but his playmaking shows up in the numbers.  I got no love for the guy, but he played to get paid.  Losing Davis hurt, but check out Anderson's line.

See poll below the table.

 

I guess I like numbers.  What I see here is that Beason was and is the heart of the defense (no surprise there).  I am surprised and encouraged by the tackles for loss, forced fumbles, and interceptions produced by the guys we still have.
