Your simple request was for me to go on a wild goose chase to find a good comment from some nerdy reporter about our underrated linebacker on a team that already doesn't get a lot of press outside Newton. Then you would just jump on your next stupid ass argument. And I think Barrett Ruud is a great linebacker so I don't know what the fug you're trying to get at here.

Too bad we brought in Kuechly, another tackling machine to be JUST ANOTHER GUY. Jeez how many of those losers do we need...

My point exactly. If there wasn't an arguement and he was this great player.....it wouldn't be a wild goose chase. It isn't hard to find people who think great players are great.

Kuechly doesn't project to be a 2 down NFL LB. Luke and Anderson aren't comparable. Luke projects to be an all around every down stud LB..... which isn't Anderson.

Great is for Willis, Lewis, Beason, etc... Ruud, Anderson (the guys who can just play) shouldn't be in the same sentence.

Nobody is saying that James Anderson and Barrett Ruud are in the same sentence as Patrick Willis, Jon Beason, or Ray Lewis. Us fans are simply giving our player props for stepping up and being a huge impact on defense last season.

James hasn't done anything but shut his mouth and play football. He hasn't spent any time nursing an injury, just making tackles and huge defensive plays that go unnoticed by simple fans like yourself.

Stop being so God damn negative all the time and stick up for your teammate for once.

So...he gets beat by a future first ballot HoF'er who has size and is a boss, beat by a good WR and by a speedy, shifty back and he sucks?

Good to know, here I just thought he was human.

This dude hated on JA hard in another thread too, repeatedly just calling him another guy and saying how much better San Fran is at LB than us.

It's not the first time he's disrespected a player on our team before either.

90% of the starting linebackers in this league can't cover.
Doesn't impress me that they use Andersons lack of coverage skills as a way to discredit him.

You just called Anderson ad Ruud great defensive players. If you do that.....it puts them in the class with great players. Those guys aren't great LBs.

Give him props for not being garbage and for being one of the few respectable guys on the field last year.....no issue with that.

Nothing said by me in this thread is negative. Not going full fan retard and calling Anderson great.....isn't being negative.

Again, great would be when Beason is healthy. He isn't a 2 down LB. He is borderline special. Calling Anderson great means he would be on par with great LBs...

So the whole argument is based on word choice now lol? Because I said he's a great linebacker instead of a 'good' or 'decent'?


You just love to argue, and argue against your team man, it's horrible and I don't know why you waste your time doing such a thing. Anderson is not a top linebacker in the league but certainly does a very good job, and while our star linebacker sat on the bench last year, Anderson stepped up and made great plays.

So fuging sorry that I back up my teammate rather than critiquing his every move and calling him 'just another guy'.

Get lost, loser.

i dont even think it's that, just funny how he randomly picked Anderson's name out of the hat. He is better than most at his position, and most can't cover Colston, Graham or Gonzo either - not even Beason.

seems pretty reasonable to me.

Anderson still has big flaws in his game, but he's improved a lot from his first couple of years in the league, when basically the only thing he could do well was blitz off the edge.

I could give two shitts when some nerd that gets paid to make stuff up about football for money hates on the Panthers, but when some dude that calls himself a 'fan' just nods and agrees it pisses me off.

It reminds me of when a troll comes in and says "The Panthers suck! You guys aren't poo!" and then a 'fan' will just say, 'Yeah we know no need to remind us"...

Not that I should even put my .02 in here but here's my take:

Anderson is a HELL of a LBer, and has an undeniable nose for the football. We already knew that he has Always been a liability in pass coverage... Which is another reason we drafted Kuechly.
Anderson is still a beast. The author quoted in the OP seems to single handedly blaim Anderson for the Defense's shortcomings as a whole...

How bout on any given one of those plays that he gets beat Johnson or Hardy sacks the QB or maybe even a 4th string DT (at the time) gets a couple of fingers and deflects the ball... This wouldn't be a topic of discussion. It's ridiculous how some people try to rationalize their own opinions.

Good research by the author, however he could easily do that with any other defender in the league.

Bad linebackers don't rack up that many tackles. Good linebackers on bad defenses do.
