It seems we've been alot more gap sound these last couple games....plus he always manages to be around the ball

I think he means just over these last two weeks nobody has been better, he'll have a tough test against forte....we've never stopped forte since he came into the league. The run D should be able to handle it

I think Luke will make national headlines this weekend....

This game IMO sets up great for Luke. Forte isn't a power RB or speedster. Chicago relies heavily on him and I fully expect Luke all over him and to sniff out some of how they incorporate him in the pass.

Whether he returns or not, I don't think Jon Beason is ever getting the MLB spot back unless Kuechly is hurt.

Honestly, given his contract and his recent penchant for injuries, it's conceivable the next GM might decide to cut ties.

Never would have bought into that notion before this season. But now... :(

Go back a few weeks and you can find alot of people saying Luke was a wasted pick.... all part of the "gotta have it now mentality"

There's a reason no draft guys (legit guys) had anything bad to say about Keek coming out of BC. Mayock couldn't say enough about him and I'm thankful we have him.

Kuechly is playing well, maybe he will teach the rest of our defense how to tackle...

Judging from Rivera's comments this week that he's always felt Luke was a natural Mike, I wonder if he would have moved Beason to the Will after hurney was fired, if beason was still healthy. Hurney could have told Rivera to play Beason at the Mike because they had paid him to be one or some ish like that

It's been a general consensus that Kuechly was drafted in part because they feared this might happen.

Part of me wonders if he's more the kind of MLB that Rivera wanted as opposed to Beason,

Doubt we'd ever know, so it's just speculation.

Not many 4-3 MLB I would take over Keek right now. Hell, Urlacher is the only one I can come up with off the top of my head.

With TD playing very well, and steady eddy Anderson. We very well could have one of the best 4-3 LB corp in the league.

Get this D some help at S, and it can be good enough to get us where we want to go.

Urlacher is two steps slower than he used to be.

Still good, but not otherworldly like he used to be.

I wouldn't take anyone over Kuechly based on age. Based on ability/production I'd probably take Willis. It's a short, short list though.
