Looking at the Luke Kuechly forced fumble

The issue has nothing to do with analyzing a play. The issue is making too much of the analysis and extrapolating that to the team or suggesting it is symptomatic of a larger problem. That is like taking a single sample and saying that since it was the case in this small example, it is going to be the case across the board. That is a huge leap from one to the other.

The entire D was exposed last season. All those guys played on that play minus Luke and Ron last year.....and Luke was the guy making a play on a ball that was the responsiblity of others.

it isn't totally meaningless. Says a lot of our starters are continuing where they left off.....struggling to make the plays even on simplistic preseason plays.

We will always disagree when you want to bitch and complain and I want to take a more measured approach and avoid extreme characterizations based on very limited data.

I prefer to wait until at least after the third preseason game to say much of anything about the defense. You prefer to complain at any opportunity. It is just a difference in style and opinion. You have every right to voice yours, I just don't think it is valid without a lot more evidence.

Not to mention Arian Foster isn't exactly a scrub.

Well, unfortunately for us we play the Jets week 3. A horrific offense. That game will literally only be about can you stop The Golden Calf of Bristol from picking up first down as he scrambles out of every pass play. If we can't dominate them outside of those The Golden Calf of Bristol runs......then we will have a lot to worry about.

We're going to need to bring in more help at DT before the season starts or we can get used to seeing stuff like this on a regular basis.

Nope not really because we are going to have Beason and Keuchly in the middle. I feel pretty confident in us primarily using a 3-4 with Johnson-Edwards-Hardy on the line and Anderson-Keuchly-Beason and a combination of Keiser, Applewhite and Alexander at the other LB spot. When our line lets a runner through Beason and Keuchly will be right there. I have a feeling they can both set records in the tackling department this season.

The play he made was truly special. But what was really special about it was the fact that he forced it on Arian Foster, arguably the best running back coming into the season.

He didn't just embarrass some 3rd string scrub on the raiders, he outsmarted a very formidable Texan offensive line and embarrassed Arian Foster.

Two words: Emanuel Yarbrough.

That's the biggest pair of tits I've ever seen.

Have you ever seen him fight the little asian guy and have to tap out?

This seems as good a time as any to offer my suggestion for Kuechly's nickname.

"Big Stick".

Cause he speaks softly.

Watching the play over and over on youtube last night, the thing that impressed me the most was Kuechly's athleticism. If you watch his feet as he is honing in on Foster, you'll see outstanding agility. Most players would have gotten tripped up by all the bodies around him but Keeks was able to avoid them and still have enough force to plow through Foster and cause the fumble.

I like it when people crap on the idea of discussing topics on a discussion forum.

These types of things are what I most want to see on a team message board. The very first internet sites I visited were breakdowns like this by quite knowledgeable fans who pointed out the bad with the good. I don't believe there are many here who have the ability or even the time to do it. I don't have either but enjoy when others can and do.
