Beason wants to stay in the middle

Thats your opinion, my opinion is that Beason is the better MLB when he's healthy.

beason isn't healthy so him being better than a rookie 5 games into his career when healthy is a mute point.....

Luke if he progresses as expected will he better at his prime than Abeason in his

Our defense sucks either way so I honestly don't care who starts in the middle. Both will start regardless. Kuechly should just be the one staying on pass downs, not Beast.

I finally figured out what you were saying. We'll say where we are after the bye.

lmao, one game and people want Kuechly in the middle? Strange how quickly some of you forget how he was absolutely destroyed in pass defense for big gains this past Sunday....but knowing this place all the blame will be put on someone else instead of the actual defender who was responsible (Kuechly).

I like Luke, but not good enough to hand the reigns over from a Pro Bowler. Sorry but I'm going to side with logic on this one.

Beason being a pro bowler in the past means nothing.....he isn't that caliber now. Poo happens.

Luke is young and flawed. He easily gave us our best game at the position of the season and it only took him one attempt.

And if you can't understand how a LB might overplay a play action against Seattle occasionally ...you just aren't willing to think rationally.

Luke just looked at home at MLB, he has to be stay there IMO

Beason can be our Derrick Brooks outside, when he gets healthy that is... im giving him a free pass this year, achilles are nasty, and hes piling on other injuries this year too.

Beason was awful in coverage the 4 games prior. Substantially worse than Luke's performance in the middle.

I wanted Beason to stay inside and get Luke up to speed outside but Beason, one of my all time favorites, has simply been terrible in his comeback.

yeah amazingly a rookie linebacker is somewhat raw in pass defense.

his instincts and diagnosis are through the roof. beason was originally drafted to play WLB and is actually a little undersized to play the middle which was one of the knocks on him coming out. remember, he got the start at MLB because of dan morgan's injury problems and ended up sticking there. the problem now is that davis is playing so well that the number of snaps to go around is getting smaller.

Based on the previous threads about Kuelchy, this is a funny thread..

The staff drafted a second elite MLB this is their problem..

I am very impressed by Luke but my vote is for Jon anyway.

I don't think Kuechly is so much better than Beason that he should be starting MLB at this point. Instinctive is one thing but experience is something else. I think the real decision will be done in the offseason/training camp next year. I don't think Kuechly playing the will hurts us as much as Beason playing the will. 100% to 100% I still at this time give the edge to Beason. Even at 80% to 100% Beason gets the edge. With a year of experience however I think it's going to get closer and closer.

This is what I believe, Kuechly down the road is the better linebacker. Even with Beason at 100%, I would have still started Kuechly in the middle because overall, Kuechly has way more talent than Beason. Yes, Kuechly projects to have way more talent than the pro bowler Beason.
