In our Division yes the Panthers. Al Holcomb has done a nice job there.

Carolina
Tampa
New Orleans
Atlanta

But we do have some young ascending players that could change that ranking by year end, and IF Ellerbe can stay healthy we have a stud out there..

panthers have the best DT duo in the NFL so their LB are setup for success.

I agree Hagan but these thing are always difficult to quantify.
Are the LBs better because of great d-line play?
Yes, but the d-line also benefits from great LB play.
Succesful symbiotic relationships make it difficult to assign a % as to who helps the other more.
I think they should forfeit one or the other position group in the name of statistical research.
All I know is they are too damn good for my taste.
