Beason very complimentary of Luke.

Veteran NFL players often feel threatened by rookies, particularly when they’re high draft picks and play the same position. Among vets, there’s frequently a sense that youngsters are there to steal their jobs.
In Carolina, Jon Beason has come to grips with first-round pick Luke Kuechly’s addition to the Panthers’ linebacker corps, and is taking a more optimistic outlook on the rookie.
“I don’t know how it’s all going to unfold, but I understand the draft pick,” Beason told the Associated Press. “I understand the kid was off the charts. So you draft him and it makes your football team better.”
Beason says Kuechly is coming along quickly.
“Oh, he’s great,” Beason said. “A good young kid and very, very instinctive. Wants to get better. Knows how to prepare. Stays late. He’s a good kid and he’s going to be a great player. … He’s way ahead of the curve for rookies just in terms of his football IQ and how he prepares. He’s going to be successful right away.”

I hope he realizes that Huddlers will flame him now for not wanting a DT or Coples.

He joked that he could play running back alongside DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart but that "we probably don't need me over there."
This, I would like to see.

That's IMHO, but I am sticking to it.

If our special teams stops giving up touchdowns, we get back 2-3 games, if the defense is just ok we may go to superbowl.
Agreed. The O isn't going anywhere but maybe up, Tolbert and Toe and hopefully Gettis. If the additions at ST and (please God) Beason, Edwards, Alexander, Kuech and some TD come through on D, we have no shame in hoping for it all.

GUARANTEED….Kueckly is a Dan Morgan clone
He WILL get hurt. His legs are like tooth picks.
