    Looked beastly tonight, matter of fact so did the whole d-line. Coples, Wilkerson and Ellis is the 3-4 standard at d-line in the NFL in the coming years.

    Ellis was a rookie who looked good any time he was allowed to play.

    What makes it all even better is that Wilkerson is a monster too. He made a great stop on the play before Cam threw that TD to Murphy before the half.

    Just curious, how many rushing yards did the Panthers have running to the middle of the line?

    Again...afraid to jinx it BUT I was pretty happy as a fan last night.

    watched the game in a Charlotte bar full of Panther fans and we looked stout on D. Cromartoie even played tough last night.

    Too much to ask but could you imagine if Wilson could play up to his potential?

    LOL.

    I think not having that cloud over his head has helped. And Dunbar.

    You need depth on the D Line. Pouha, Ellis, Coples, Wilkerson, Devito, Dixon. Rex's Defense is loaded. Ellis couldn't handle the whole season on his own. Neither could Pouha.

    When they run a 43 line, it's obvious who's going to be next Pouha and it won't be DeVito, or at least it shouldn't be.

    Pouha gets paid a lot, and he's nothing but a jag. I've never been impressed with him. He's a good stop-gap and he should split time with ellis this year. Next year Ellis should get the majority of the time and we look to add depth through FA/Drafting

    Hopefully we can sneak Damon Harrison onto the PS and can fill that role next year.

    Pouha has been good for us over the past 3 years, but we're talking about a guy who will be 34 years old at the end of the season and is now having back issues.

    I'm all for having depth at the position, but we don't need that kind of money invested in a backup NT.

    Pouha is a damn good run stuffer, but Ellis is a young beast who has the potential to not only blow up the run and take on double teams, but a guy who can collapse the pocket and put pressure on the QB. That's extremely rare in a noseguard.
    I think Pouha has enough value and a mangeable contract that we should try to trade him before just releasing him. He might garner a 3rd or 4th or a decent offensive player.

    No question that Ellis is showing signs of being a beast. Much better potentially than Pouha in that he has more of an ability to get to the QB.

    Edit: I take the manageable contract comment back. I didn't realize Pouha balloons to over $6M next season. Releasing sounds like the only option.

    Seriously - If he keeps it up, and you add in the fact that Coples is beasting and Mo's only in his 2nd year... This Dline is could end up being our best yet.
    +1
    He had a very impressive game! The D-Line can be really special this year if everyone stays healthy.

    Exactly. Pouha and Ellis are true NT's. You need two good ones to rotate and keep them fresh throught the game. If MTV comes in instead of Pouha, I think the NT position takes a serious talent dip.

    And of course Rex' defense is loaded. He makes sure that Tanny keeps his coffer full on the defense.

    Unfortunately, to the detriment of the offense.

    Wait wait wait....one of our local "experts" tagged him as "druggie" when he was picked.

    This guy can't possibly be good right?

    No no no. Pouha was an absolutely necessary signing considering his production and Ellis being considered very raw as of 1 month ago. He also signed a very team friendly deal on the eve of FA and probably could've gotten another $5-10m on the open market.

    Our D-Line is certainly stacked though and some team if going to get a bargain from whichever bubble guy in MTV, Richardson, or Harrison are cut.

    Yeah the Jets have spent the last 2 years rebuilding the defensive line. Wilkerson, Ellis, Coples along with Pouha and Devito is nasty. They're generating a pass rush sending 4 guys now, which is huge. Now if they could do the same thing with the offensive line and skill positions...

    Last years draft isn't looking so bad now is it. If Powell can start to show something then I'd say it's one of our best in years
