Yep, we ran the ball 13 times. That's not even giving the run a chance.

We ran the ball ONE time on first downs all game while we passed the other 14 first down plays.


Back to the subject, just goes to show most people here have no clue what they are talking about. Please geniuses, trying to dog Kuechley cuz you only know the glamor rolls of LBr's like sacks or turnovers. OP, don't create any more threads this season. Thanks.

Whoever says LBs aren't supposed to take up blocks never played LB apparently. When an Iso comes at an LB, he is usually taught to take on the FB with either inside leverage (spilling, so the back is forced to run outside where another defender is supposed to be) or with outside leverage (forcing the RB to go inside where another defender is responsible for making the tackle. Different teams teach it different ways. The team I play for usually spills while the backside LB runs over top. Same goes for power plays and counters when the LB has to take on a pulling OG or OT.

Kueckly starts his awesome DROY campaign by taking on blockers so someone else can make the tackles.

You have failed at all levels in this thread from the creation, to your little sarcasm remark. Stick with the fantasy football because real football is beyond your means of competency.

I like all of our players on some level. I choose to be honest about their talent level instead of a fan who exaggerates the players talent level. See Smith > than Calvin Johnson, or McClain and Fua are fine because they were rookies. If you think your way is better, then fine, but I'm not submitting my beliefs to an asinine circle jerk for the team.

Good linebackers,*cough* Lavonte David......Avoid blockers by using their speed or blowing the fullback up.......

*cough* Carolina wasn't using a FB to lead block

Luke would have had his first sack if he hadn't been held. Since it was called, as it turns out it was just as good as a sack.

There were some plays by Luke that were not so great. But as others have said, he is a rookie and just played his first game. Give it a little time.

One other comment...I really don't understand the apparent joy some people take because a player they didn't like coming out of the draft didn't have a great game. You claim you are Panthers fans, but I swear some of you would rather see a loss just to say, "look at me, I was right".


If I was right, and I get feed sugar coated statements from homers about how I am wrong, you bet your ass, I'm going to say I'm right. You want to make statements like McClain and Fua are fine, or Edwards will return punts for Adams then fine. But you will get called out on it. Please notice that I do not say anything drastically out of the realm of realism. Lets see I said Adams will be the punt returner, Fua, McClain arent an answer, we wont have a top 10 D, we have invested enough in RB's and LBers for now, and there isn't a LBer in this league including Kuechly that can cover Graham. I haven't said anything that reality isn't backing up for me.

I've been though this routine enough to know I'm going to get comments about how Richardson should hire fans on their couch, but that isn't the issue. I'm not claiming to be a genius. The stuff I harp on, I consider to be absolutely obvious. I mean are their actually people who think all McClain and Fua needed was time? Please people who watched the tape 5 times tell me how I need to go rewatch the tape to see that one time in the second quarter Fua got double teamed, and we need people who get double teamed.

First of all, my comment wasn't directed specifically at you, it is a tone that I've noticed on occasion from a variety of posters, and I just don't understand it. Say you think someone isn't the answer for us, or that they had a bad game, or don't fit our offense, etc. and most will respect your opinion. It is a matter of style. Case in point...

Kueckly starts his awesome DROY campaign by taking on blockers so someone else can make the tackles.


That just came off to me as kind of flippant, and gloating that he didn't have a great first game.

As to the rest of your comments about McClain and Fua and Edwards etc. you will have to take that up with the people that are strongly in their corner. I have some serious doubts myself, but I am not going to enter threads to say, "see, I was right, these guys are a joke". It's just a matter of style.

I'm glad to see it's not just my fellow Buc fans that overreact to one game. So Barron and David both played well in their first game and Kuechly didn't, that doesn't mean Kuechly won't be very good. Many Bucs fans wanted Kuechly in the draft. Hell, the guy that took Kuechly out of the game, Erik Lorig, many fans wanted him gone as a rookie despite the fact that he was a 7th round pick that changed from defense to offense. No one seems to have the patience to wait for the final product these days.

Yeah, I'm a Bucs fan, but I try to be objective about the other teams. I happen to think Kuechly is going to be another in a long line of excellent Carolina LBs.

I'm mocking the guys who instantly said Kuechly would be the DPOY, as soon as we drafted him. If Kuechly was drafted by anyone else they would not be saying that, or if we have drafted someone else they would likely be saying DPOY for that person. It is a joke. Keuchly is good, I like him, he is talented, fact. He isn't a a physical transcendent player who will cover Graham, who we really didn't need, but I don't want to get into that again. Nothing wrong with that, but if anyone heavily embellishes his abilities beyond what reality will not likely back up, expect to be called on it.

There were people saying he could be defensive rookie of the year. Not overall player.

Luke has 15 more games to play, not sure what you expected given how the team performed as a whole.
