I respect Beason and what he has done for our organization, so I don't mean for this thread---in any form or fashion---to be a piss on Beason thread. Call him injury prone the last couple of years, but mediocre and Beason do not belong together in the same sentence.

This thread is more of a thumbs up to Kuechly. He seems to be as good as advertised at his position, so in that sense Hurney (and Rivera) hit a home run.

Agreed. I didn't intend for my post to be anti-Beason either.

Jon Beason has been THE MAN leading a below average defense for like 4 years. IMHO that makes him disappointing to me, no matter how good he is as an individual. I think that he is great competitor, but not nasty, Luke seems to have a bit of nasty streak, plays a little more angry, we need a lot of guys like that.

I truly cannot believe how fickle this fan base can be. Does Luke need to be put into MLB spot for now? Yes he does, but people talking about cutting or getting rid of a guy who has had over 120 tackles for us each year he has played 16 games. You can never have enough LB's IMO. Beason should re-structure tho if he wants to stay here in Carolina after this season is over.

I do think Beason needs to be put on IR, the guy tore his achilles and that is never easy to come back from. I said it all offseason Beason will look like poo this year and he hasn't been the same. Time is what this guy needs which most of this fan base don't like the thought of that because unfortunately this is a "What have you done for me lately" type of game.
