#Panthers LB Jon Beason, in no uncertain terms, said he wants to stay in the middle when he returns, likely for the Dallas game on Oct. 21.

Luke Kuechly played well in the middle vs. Seattle with 11 tackles and 1 INT. Said MLB spot is more active than weakside.

Beason can want in one and poo in the other and see which one fills up first.
I love Beason, but if I were Chico, his ass is a Will or a Sam LB from this day forward.

It's about the team, not individuals.

Based on their respective performances so far this year, Luke deserves it, Jon doesn't.

That said, I expect Rivera and McDermott will give in to Jon and send him back out there.

Good thing is they have a long break here to think about it. Clearly it is most beneficial to the team to have Luke in the middle and he is our future there. Sure Ron will make the right decision with this. It will be hard to tell Beason that Luke will be starting in the middle but it has to be done. It is a business and these decisions have to be made sometimes. You can't really care about player's feelings when it comes to these things.

Why is everyone so damn selfish? Is this how Rivera is coaching? From Cam to Steve and now Beason. It's all about them instead of the team.

Luke is a lot faster, better tackler, and better in coverage. That is why he needs to start in the middle for Dallas, with Beason at weakside and Davis and strongside with Anderson subbing in for those 2.

only way Beason should return to the middle is if Luke gets injured or we go to the 3-4 for some reason. Other than that Beason needs to prove he can tackle consistently.

They aren't. They are just saying what they would prefer but I promise you they would be whatever the need to, to help the team.
