Kuechly may be the best defensive player on the team already.

I still don't like that he does not have that killer mind set. I saw on one play where he had a chance to blow up the RB and he let up and the guy got an extra yard on the play. His nose for the ball is uncanny but he does not like to destroy players.

I know what you mean, but his play will decrease his chances of getting hurt. As long as he can get to the ball we have plenty of other guys ready to do damage (Beason,Davis,Johnson,Hardy,Godfrey,Norman). I did see one nice lick he put on somebody wrapped up already.

He popped Greene several times. Not every tackle is a madden hit stick bro. He had 10 tackles in 1 half. No need to nit pick about him hitting harder. The thing about Luke once he gets his hands on the guy they go down almost every time. The play is over once he's there.

Meh some just have it and some don't. Ray Lewis has been hitting people hard for years and he is no worse for ware. I'm not knocking the kid, he is going to make a whole lot of good plays and on goal line plays he has not given a inch so I'm not real worried.

No one said this is madden and I'm not your bro, bro. A better word would be he wrapped up green several times and if I were to nit pick I would say he also miss tackled Green twice.

Gross wasn't the best LT prospect to come out in a decade though......

true, but my point is we had a player at gross position who had pro bowl caliber talent & still had some tread left, even after he was gone we tried wharton at LT for awhile

Kuechly has the potential to be better than Beason, he's already better in coverage. Beason is an amazing talent, and this isn't a knock on him at all, but Kuechly can be a once in a generation player.

At no point during my post did I question Kuechly's potention. I said that Beason is our best defensive player and he is. Kuechly will improve and that's scary good considering where he is right now, but there is no way that I'd say that as of right now, he is better than beason because he's not! Beason is not only the better of the two, Beason is the heart and soul of our defense. His presence on the field is something I would never even think of replacing with a Rookie or ever say that a Rookie is better than someone that brings so much to our team and has done from his rookie year. Kuechly will continue to grow by watching the best defensive player on the team, Jon Beason.

not sure he will ever be the type leader Beason is.....

But I think overall he will be the best LB on the team by the end of the season. Beason will be the leader but outside of hitting harder Luke at least projects a little better in all other aspects....I expect him to be that guy.

MLB will be Luke's next year. Gives Luke even more room and ability to use his instincts to make plays. Beason needs to be used in more of a thumper role.

This is why Beast will be in the middle for atleast the next 3 years if healthy

He made so many amazing plays over the course of preseason, and especially last night with the extended amount of PT. But, for some reason, the one that really stood out to me last night was where he was basically the only guy to break through on a run down in the red zone to his right, the runner (may have been Greene) shook him off, but Kuechly forced him to redirect... The runner cut back and tried to run back around the left side (defense's perspective) and Kuechly got up from the missed tackle ran him down on that side and finished him off before he could gain anything.

Unbelievable.
