Davis was in full pads today and it seems like he's gonna play this Sunday. Will Kuechly start at MLB or will Davis play with second defense?

He should if they wanna actually practice a game day defense with Beason out.

I'm not big on rookies trying to learn two different positions. The transition to the NFL is tough enough just focusing on one.

What? I hope Davis stays strickly as relief this year so that he gets one year under his belt even if it isnt as a starter. If he makes it through 1 year as a back up we know he is ready for the next step and we get limited production out of him in 2012 instead of 1 week of production.

U do realize that he started at MLB vs Dolphins right? They had Jason Phillips as MLB for broadcast, but it was def Keuchly.

Plus it's his natural position, so not much of a learning curve there.

Of course he's relief in the REG season, he'd only play two quarters if that, this Sunday.

Do I think Keuchly will start at MLB? No that is where Phillips plays. Phillips is Beasts back up. He needs the reps.

Then again, MLB is Keeks natural position. So when Davis is in at Will, Keek can play Mike.

You say that as if you have some fasinating insight. Everyone is ready to see what TD can do. They may limit him. Or they may run him to death and see how he responds. We have to find out if he can play. Let him run around for three quarters and see how he responds the next few days.

The longer Beast is out, the more important TD becomes. We have to see him play quite a bit in the next few weeks. If he can hold up, we are good to go. If he falters, we found out early.

I would not count TD out just yet.

I'd prefer him at the Mike spot.

But with that said, in this system he can be effective pretty much anywhere.

So you would rather have Davis possibly get injured as a starter this season or have him be the number 1 back-up in the league at OLB at the league veteran minimum wage?

Does anyone think its possible Davis puts his knee woes behind him for good after good rehab and Dr.Andrews doing the surgery?

What? I haven't counted TD out. If anything I'm optimistic.
