Our Linebackers...

Wasn't this suppose to be our strongest part of our defence this year?

Beason isn't the same, he was missing running holes, missing tackles and his pass coverage was awful and that is the best part of his game, Luke and Anderson played okay, but nothing amazing, and of course TD is banged up.

I just feel with the amount of potential talent we have at linebacker, we shouldn't be getting carried to the 2nd level by running backs, when we blitz LBs we never get close to getting a sack, and when we don't people are still getting open on them.

Could be just a bad game, but beason and the LB core looked horrible last night/so far this season.

Kuechly needs to play every down. He's a beast when's he's out there. Only player who gets sideline to sideline

But our staff removes him often. It's bullshit

Went to the game. It was sometime in the 3rd quarter Kuechly made a tackle after being taken out an he blew his lid off out of frustration. He knows he deserves/should be out there on every play

Beason is a good bit slower, but he gives 100% effort and is usually in the right place. He just doesn't have the burst that he used to, and for an undersized middle linebacker; if you lose your burst, you're f***ed

Thomas Davis and J.A. have been solid.

I've seen absolutely nothing out of Keuchly so far.

He gets his tackles 8-10 yards down the field and he has taken horrible angles in the run game.

I'm willing to give him a pass because he is a rookie, but as it stands right now, he looks out of place on the outside.

Go back and watch this game again (if you can stomach it) and watch Andre Brown's cutbacks. He would cutback to Keuchly's side after Keuchly was sucked into the middle when breaking containment.

He looks like he is thinking to much on the field, instead of reacting.

Thomas Davis is our best linebacker

The problem with Keeks is he isn't great at shedding blocks at this level (yet)

The natural instinct flashes at times and you see the playmaking but primarily it seems he is trying to play too fast and gets misdirected/caught up in blocks too easy.

Right now nobody on this team has a clue what they are doing. Its sad. Like i said earlier im glad we played this game this early cuz if there is one team that needs 10 days to figure themselves out its us.

I saw Keuchly make some very good plays but he is a rook and he does make mistakes sometimes, he is not the problem its others who are suppose to be the vets that are not playing well, I watched Beason bounce of the rookie running back when he had him behind the line. It just looked like sloppy play on both sides of the ball and that falls on the coaches.

I would say our D-Line is worse. Who would have thought out best D-Lineman was the last guy to make the team.

Beason did look terrible last night. It is ridiculous how they are trying to ease TD back in, but are playing Beason every down of every game. Keuchly has the stamina and is hungry. Why would you take the LB who had so many interceptions in college off of the field on passing downs? Are they trying to be cute and spontaneous? Beason has lost some of that burst and he is playing on skates. Keuchly would have made that pick that Beason could not elevate to intercept. Thomas Davis has played the best so far and Anderson has been underwhelming. I just want to dictate what the offense does some of the time. Jesuz Christo!!!

Pretty much everything said in this post is wrong. I'm not even going to bother going through it all and correcting you. I don't care that much. I just want you to know that it's all wrong.

the play Beason missed that stood out most to me is when he made contact with Brown in the backfield, missed wrapping him up and Brown went for about 25.
