He is a dang good LB already. Makes plays. Him and Beason are going to form a dynamic duo.

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.


He moves through traffic like a Barry Sanders LB monster.

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.



That is what I like best about him. He knows how to tackle and very few players these days know how to bring a guy down instead of trying to make the big hit. He reminds me of a rugby tackler which think is a great thing.

I personally liked the play where he missed the initial tackle got back up and STILL made the tackle on the RB. That's tells you a lot about him. You can't teach that kind of hustle.

You guys should've told them to shut up and finish the sandwiches.

Its very hard for me to disagree with this, i really enjoyed just watching him play and make tackles. Beason is my guy, but i am leaning more towards Keek being the better player down the road, he just looks he was born to play linebacker. He just pops out of the screen so much for being a linebacker, they were talking about him the whole second quarter thats how you know you have special player if they do that from a position thats not emphasized as much as others.

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


Different styles. Luke will likely never lead in the manner Beason does.....

Beason's leadership isnt going to keep Luke from MLB if Luke turns out to be what he projects. I still don't think people realize how good Luke has the potential to be.....but will after this season.

Just want to add...If Thomas Davis can somehow get back to 2009 form before his injury, he would become our best defensive player

Ordered a Kuechly jersey last night though!!


Im bout to order mine, i was gonna wait till regular season but fug it. Now Im sure as hell he is gonna dominate this year.

That play alone shows us what we've got in Kuechly. Like this guy named Lombardi once said, "It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up." (and what you do afterwards)

Thomas Davis on that sack and YELLING TD was the highlight of my night

Once cuts come around maybe we can finally get a decent safety...

LUKE IS A BEAST

He's like a liquid brick. Nearly every play I tried to locate Keuchly pre snap - he'd then disappear into a pile of linemen and be hanging onto the ball carrier a half second later.

For those bitching about him hitting big - he hits a hell of a lot harder than we realize. You gotta remember at 6-3 245 he's ALOT bigger than he looks and it one of the larger LBs in the league. When he gets some room to use his top speed on some pitches, screen or dump off passes your gonna see him level some people. you gotta remember when weaving through traffic like he did all game he really can't get more than one step of momentum - so he wraps up and tugs at the ball like he should.

Keuchly's blitzing ability isn't really known, he wasn't asked to do it in college. That doesn't mean that he can't. He has the tools to be a dominant blitzer for sure.


He did a good job of it earlier in the pre-season and he's been picking Gross' brain about it in training camp too.

At BC he was simply asked to make every tackle - their DC didn't want to risk running him out of the play by blitzing him.
