Quinton Coples continues to show everyone why Rex had the faith in this guy, when everyone else criticized. He made his presence felt again last night, with a sack and a forced fumble. Quinton is proving himself to be a tough man to block. And to the critics, his “motor” looks pretty good to me!
Another acquistion that is going to make a huge difference this year is Mr. LaRon Landry. He had 3.5 tackles to go along with his second INT in the postseason. Man, can he hit or what? The receivers of this league are going to learn pretty quickly that it isn’t safe going over the middle against this guy. It still remains to be seen if he and Yeremiah Bell can stop the TEs of the world, but it most certainly is going to be a much fairer fight. That’s for sure.
The first team defense as a whole looked pretty good. The Panthers offense really got nothing going through the air, and the run defense was tough as usual. Through the struggles, the one thing you don’t have to worry about is the Jets defense, as they look ready to return to the league’s elite.
