He says that now. Newton takes one big hit or the offensive line is struggling and he's out of there.

Hurney spoke highly of Phillips recently. I'm surprised Kuechly didn't get a shot at starting in the middle though.

Why would they start him in the center? He's going to be playing on the outside so long as Beason plays this year, and at this point there is no reason to think that he won't. Playing him in the middle would be unnecessarily robbing him of reps at the position that he's going to be playing.

Will be interesting to see if Houston wants to play most of it's starters for the 1st quarter...

yeah, kuechly is the guy they are planning on keeping at WLB at least this season. no sense in moving him to another just for a practice game or two.
