Defensively-4th

Areas to improve: More yards vertically. Spread the ball to WR’s. Get the WR’s started early. Continue to mix and match—ground and air. Cam needs more passing yards. Greg Hardy and C. Johnson must continue to add to their sack numbers. Secondary must be ball-hawks and be in position to intercept the ball. Kuechly and T. Davis must continue to play smart, make good reads and be in position to make tackles.

*The Run game appears to be working, averaging good yards.

Top Leaders– D. Williams and L. Kuechly. Greg Hardy is moving up on the list.
