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.

If he stays healthy he will surpass Morgans career numbers easily.

What a big if! And Dan had more than a bug . . .

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.


But the post by Zod said that Beason is already as good or better than a healthy Morgan. Key word being Healthy there. In a vacuum, if we compare the two players with injuries not being a factor then Morgan runs away with this, IMO.

I agree that Beason is more valuable based on his durability as well, but that isn't pertinant to the discussion when we're talking about who we'd want when they're healthy. It's like saying that Jake Delhomme is better than Tom Brady right now because Tom Brady isn't playing for the Patriots. Well duh, right?

There still hasn't been a linebacker since Morgan that could go sideline to sideline like he could. I haven't seen enough of Patrick Willis to judge but in terms of pure speed and lateral agility, Morgan was in a class by himself. I really think that guy could have extended his career by moving to SS.
