Beason is already as good if not better than Dan Morgan in his prime...

IF he stays healthy, I believe Beason will prove to be the best Panthers defensive player of the franchise to date, JP not withstanding. I love Pep, but he has been inconsistent at times in his career. Beason has brought it every game! He's still young, though, so we'll just have to wait and see. (jmho)

Still don't agree. Beason is a hell of a player but Morgan was a generational talent at LB.... which makes his demise all the more sad for those of us that knew his value. Morgan was faster, more agile, and better in pass coverage than Beason. Morgan was a sideline to sideline threat.

Beason reminds me of London Fletcher. He'll be the heart of this defense for a long time and will be one of the best, if not the best, run stopping MLB in the league... but a pass coverage icon he will not be. Morgan was not as strong against the run as Beason, but he had him bested in virtually all other aspects of the position aside from leadership.

Just to play Devil's advocate, until Beason gets his chance to prove is worth in the big game. My vote still goes to Dan. Consistency...i'de go with Beason.

All the talent in the world ain't worth poo if it doesn't show up between the white lines.

i agree 100%. no denying morgan was a huge talent but he couldn't stay healthy and unconcussed for very long in any season. we kept him for far too long.

beason will never agree that he is better than morgan but it would still be true.

However I will go against the grain and say that if Morgan didn't have the injury bug, Id take him over Beason. Morgan was easily the best MLB in the NFL when healthy.

your "thread title length : post length" ratio is way off...
