It may be time to move Kuechly to the middle.

He is on pace to have 120 tackles this season, thats what he did in 2010.

He is a play maker and a leader. If you can't see that....I can't help you.

Beason is not the problem.
The problem is the unpreparedness into a game every other week.

Secondary got torch bc the coaches thought they we're playing baseball having Naka 50ft from wrs and Gamble/Norman 30 ft away

Dline wouldnt be able to stop Nick Goings if he was the Gmen rb last night

Tackles isn't a good measure of play by itself ...Godfrey has tackles. That doesn't make him a good tackler. Beason currently isn't a playmaker.....he is a guy consistantly getting beat

It certainly isn't the only measure. He's not his former self right now. He's getting bullied around out there, just watch him.

I have been , from the sidelines every game.

Has he made every tackle? No

Has any linebacker on the Panthers? No

They all are playing like crap right now, but Beason is not the main issue by a long shot. You want to see how terrible our defense can get? Take him out of the game. He is the ONLY leader out there.

This is the type of blind optimism we DON'T need right now, Zod...

Don't agree with the OP though. At least, not until Kuechly plays better

Luke is struggling pretty badly himself.

lol....by itself? No.

leading tackler on the team is Charles Godfrey.....so according to you Godfrey has been a good.

Godfrey, Beason and Norman are 3 of the top 4 tacklers.....and they have been 3 of the worst if not THE 3 worst players on D through the 3 game season. Heading into the game Godfrey and Beason....we're already graded as the worst performing players by PFF. Love or hate the site, they aren't Panther fans and at least attempt to give you a non homer view.

You don't think the fact you are friendly with Beason could cloud your view?

If Kuechly was playing lights out, I'd sort of understand this.

Beason doesn't look the same so far, but no one else has looked ready to fill in for him, either. Hell, other than situational work from Davis, our LB play has been mostly hot garbage this season.

And you trumpeting Kuechly all pre-draft and off-season isn't clouding yours?

I wanted Luke bc I didn't think Beason would be Beason. You will take lumps with Luke....standard rookie stuff.

outside of the opening to the Tampa game Luke has been good. Beason looks more lost than our rookie out there....and can't even cash in on easy big plays. I think Luke either makes the tackle or gets that pick. TD and Luke need bigger roles.....ones that play to strengths.

My offseason hunch looks to be right.

He hasn't been good. His highlight so far is sniffing out a screen play. He's made a bunch of tackles down the field, gotten his ankles broken a couple of times, hasn't stood out in any metric and looked every bit the same as a James Anderson style player - who you love to point out as a JAG. Hell, the coaching staff don't even trust him to be out during passing plays, which is supposed to be one of his strengths.

He's a rookie and it's stupid to label him for a few years. May he really turn out to be Urlacher 2.0. He's not tearing things up as a rookie and hasn't shown enough to replace Beason yet, is all I'm saying.

PS - It sounds a little like I'm saying he's a problem with the Defense. I'm not. I just don't think he's ready yet and am not sure yanking Beason actually makes us in any way better.

This has nothing to do with your quote but rather your sig. The times visited Bojangles needs to be upped from 0 to 1. At the Saints game on the jumbotron it showed Jerry drinking straight out of a Bojangles cup.
