I Do Not Hate Luke Keuchly

Rationale being that it would make the pick a waste.

It's still a terrible thought. He cares more about how our draft picks are used than our players.

You can phrase it any way you want, but that sh*t is lame.

If you can't remember Dan Morgan and Will Witherspoon, then your memory is ass.

They were just as important to our success that season.

Of course I remember them, and acknowledge the beast that Morgan was that season, especially in the SB, but our calling card on defense that year was our D-line above all other units. Do you dispute that?

no way in hell keuchly sits on the bench, and you all know that.

obviously there would be a rotation at the LB positions based on health and performance. limiting snaps for thomas davis is an effective way to elongate his productivity and lessen his chance for injury.

Rationale being that it would make the pick a waste because we could have used it on another position.

I don't necessarily agree with that logic, but I understand the point of view.

Exactly

also anyone whining about drafting LBer is discounting any possibility of mcclain or fua becoming good defensive tackles by proxy, which is arrogant and short-sighted as hell

Kuechly is not coming off the field. 1st, 2nd, 3rd down player and going to be a special teams beast.

did not read, do not care

Playing with your forum life here son...

I hear your points Kurb and you make some good ones, DL is very important and if we don't keep those beasts off of our LB'ers having "the best LB's in the NFL" won't matter, you're right. But maybe the FO is looking at this a different way... just speculation on my part, but maybe they really are happy with the guys we have (Edwards, et al.) and think that getting a guy like this that is (from everything I've seen on him) a "pure" football player in the mold of guys like Dan Morgan, Brian Urlacher, Ray Lewis, etc. was a good call. Plus we all know that Hurney likes to make sure he's picking a "hit" in the first round and that's really not a bad overall draft strategy.

I don't know if I buy the theory that this is "last call" for TD... I really don't think this pick had anything to do with him. I hope, I really hope he can come back and play ball, but I doubt it, at least not for a full season...

I just think they picked this kid because they thought he was the best defensive player on the board.

I watched Cox several times last year with Miss St and fell in love with him...as a second round developmental player. Beware the player that shoots up at the last minute.

It's not a sexy pick, but I'm reminded of the Onion headline that came out shortly after the New Orleans craziness "Panther admit to paying a bounty to anyone who could make a tackle."

Luke is an out of the box tackling machine who can cover TE's. He's Dan Morgan 2.0. Hopefully without all the injuries.

I get what you're saying, and I can understand how that would look bad.

For what it's worth, I seriously doubt either Kurb or Kat would wish bad things on Thomas Davis.

You know what's lame? Wasting a first round top 10 draft pick on insurance incase something MIGHT happen to some player when you NEED help elsewhere. If they're so worried about that happening, they should move on from said player.

"I hope Davis doesn't make a comeback and stay healthy, so that our draft pick can be justified."

That is just an awful, awful way to look at things. Davis is still a Panther. Stop valuing the draft so much, tools.

Look at what Lewis, Urlacher, Willis have done for the general direction of team defense for the past decade.

All you really need to know is Kooks was #1 on our board. Apparently they thought he was a franchise type of player. Considering that its hard to fault the pick.
