Panthers DC Sean McDermott said they'll "experiment more" with the 3-4 defense in 2013.
"Would we like to do more? Absolutely. How much of it? We'll see," said McDermott. The main reasoning behind the desire is that Carolina has four quality linebackers in Luke Kuechly, Jon Beason, Thomas Davis, and James Anderson. "We've got to get all of those guys on the field," McDermott added. Mike Clay of Pro Football Focus, and Rotoworld contributor, said the Panthers ran zero base 3-4 snaps in 2012, playing 39 snaps in the 3-3-5 nickel defense.
