But the inverse is rarely true. Teams without good veteran leadership are rarely successful. And Beason can't do it all himself. You need leaders at every level on defense. Who is going to run the secondary? Gamble? Godfrey? Martin??
Eh, there's some bad teams out there that have good veteran leadership. I'll take the more talented players anyday. Besides, Beason is the leader of the Panthers defense, and he leads by example and by his play.
Good luck on that.
