Kuechly's run for the recordbooks

With the first game just a little over 72 hours away I am hoping that for the second year in a row, a Panthers rookie sets the NFL on its ear.

The record for tackles in a season belongs to Chris Spielman, 195. He averaged 12.2 total tackles a game in 1994 and believe it or not, had zero sacks on the year.

Patrick Willis holds the rookie record with 174 tackles and 4 sacks, averaging 10.8 per game.

I have a feeling that Luke will be in both of these guy's neighborhoods as we approach our playoff run.

Kudos to all of you that called for this guy before the draft. I wanted Brockers, Poe or Cox but now I feel like we got the steal of the draft.

So, can a guy that had 191 tackles in 12 college games pull off the statistical shocker of the year?

Yes I believe he could. Also send me my Cam Newton Gatorade. <3

He most certainly has the talent to achieve those records. I say yes!

Gimme 13 tackles in game 1 Luke. That will start it.

The only thing that will limit his tackle opportunities is Anderson and Beason being on the same field.

Are we all forgetting that the 49ers had an awful team when Willis got the record? I'd rather Kuechly not get the record because not only does this stat not signify that we have a good defense, but because this record could also mean that we have a lousy defense with only one good tackler. DROY is good enough for me.

I can totally agree with what you have said.

But I want the record and a good defensive year. Maybe too much to ask, but I'm asking anyway.

Where'd you get your stats SIGCHI? Last time I checked, tackles are an unofficial stat, so if he broke either record, it wouldn't be "official."

Regardless, I think he's fully capable of breaking either or both this season, he has an instinct for the ball that I've NEVER seen before in Panthers history.
