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

Too bad Morgan did not work out...

On the flip side, had he worked out, that could have meant no Beason for us..

Beason > Morgan

I loved Morgan's production and Fire when he was healthy. To be fair, he was the heart of the defense for a number of years. Did we keep him around a few years too long? Yeah, I think we did, but now that Beason is forming into a top tier MLB, it's all good.

I still display my Morgan signed ball in the living room.

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.

And health. Oh, wait...

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.

    • This is a huge cop out and it says that the only way to save our beloved means of governing is to bail out of the system and then have a revolution and start over again. You fix the system by casting knowledgeable votes in every frikkin' election. Every election. Local, state and federal. The situation is screwed right now because frikkin' lazy voters don't take the time to learn anything about their local candidates, or their state ones (here in NC that really bit us in the ass, didn't it?). Those elections lead to the ones above them AND frikkin help decide who will be taking part in primaries and even putting in the votes for the electoral college. An educated and willing electorate also tears the crap out of big money donors and tends to churn the political offices for the good of all. But no, a bunch of folks just drag themselves out of their cocoons to cast a vote for the president and maybe check off a box or two of people whose names sound familiar every four years. And then we've got the whiniest and most self righteous of the bunch, like you, who say that votes don't matter and they aren't going to get involved in the whole corrupt system. They march around smug and whining, putting on airs of intellectual superiority while complaining about every frikkin thing under the sun. Get up, learn your candidates and start voting local and up. All politics is local. ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL. Your town council or Board of Education or County Commission matters. Your State senators and representatives matter. BIG FRIKKIN TIME HERE. Doing this is how you really start reforming the system. This is how you start beating back the machinery in place that goes and grabs people by the busload and brings them to the polls to elect idiots and thieves. And then, maybe, just maybe, you run for office or volunteer some time to work for a candidate you believe in. You attend meetings and voice your opinions and hold politicians accountable, those in your own backyard first. And buy a frikkin' newspaper once in a while or buy an ad in one. No matter what crap the politicos try to tell you, those guys and gals scribbling notes at government meetings and then getting ink stains from printing the stories are your first line of defense and your best teachers. But stop acting all superior about not voting. Really, be a responsible adult. You have to work for it. Our republic doesn't have a reset button like your Xbox.

    • With CJ's back issues I'm not even sure how good I feel this year.  If he's a full go and we do go DE at 8 on paper it's top front 7 of all time worthy.
