    CHARLOTTE     The guys on the Panthers' defense clearly think there's something special happening here.

    Defensive end Brian Burns was the first to be effusive about their potential during OTAs, saying: "I don't feel like a lot of things can stop us this year."

    Cornerback Donte Jackson was singing the same song this week, adding: "We can be dominant, man. We can be dominant."

    And while some of that optimism is justified based on the offseason additions, it's also early enough that those who have seen it come together want to wait before making any declarations.

    "Here's the deal," veteran defensive coordinator Phil Snow said. "Talent-wise, we have some guys and some good pieces, but it depends on us now. I never really talk about the opponent much, but I think if we do what we're supposed to and come out and work every day, practice is really the most important thing we do. And if they're detailed out here and play hard and physical, then I think everything will fall into place.

    "I'm glad they're excited, because they look at each other and say: 'Hey, we can be really good.' And with that belief, you have a chance to be. I'm excited, but we're still not in pads yet. This is PE to me. When we put on the pads and stuff, that will be real football."
