He's played one more game than Kuechly. Kuechly's averaging 13 tackles a game since he took over at MLB (52 tackles over 4 games). If you add that to Kuechly's total to get an "apples-to-apples" comparison, Kuechly would have 90 tackles to Greenway's 94.

How long has Greenway been in the league? He's developed into that type of player. Keek is the face of defensive stars for years to come... He's this good as a rookie and his instincts are what separates him.

another stat. we have the worst punter in football. On top of that, I think there's a lot of punter roiding up that leg as there's like 4 that have over a 50 average which is INSANE


Another stat: Kuechly is on pace to reach 185 tackles at the end of the season, from since he started at MIKE. Cmon I been waiting for this thread. Gotta put more thought to it. lol

it would cost us more to trade him next year than to keep him. someone mentioned before how he should study tape of derrick brooks and try to be that type of player, and i agree.

<--- big time Keek supporter since Day One.


Exactly, and I am glad that we drafted Kuechely too, hes who I wanted.

Is he the DROY right now? This award is usually a numbers game but there is without question the defense has been affected by him taking over the MLB.

Johnson & Hardy have suddenly blossomed into one of the best DE combos in the league since Luke stepped in.

Another thing,

Luke could turn out to be one helluva a parting gift from Marty Hurney.

This.


Luke is the prototype for MLB in the NFL now. A lighter, faster MLB to keep up with the passing game. In fact, Lewis is at his lightest he has ever played at, 240, just over Kuechly at 235.


Not that his weight mattered. Ray Lewis ran a 4.53. He was a lot more of a "freak" than people realize.

Why do people criticize the Urlacher comparisons so much? I don't know why people jump to the conclusion that people are only comparing them because he's white. Not saying its been the case this thread but I'm just talking about in general. I'd compare him more to Urlacher than I would Lewis personally. Just looking at their measurables and watching them play, Kuechly and Urlacher are identical in their play style. The only key difference is Urlacher is tall as hell for an inside backer but Kuechly's still 6'3 (Urlacher is borderline 6'5).

Besides, it isn't like being compared to Urlacher is a bad thing.

It takes 18 months at least to come back from an achilles injury. People writing Beason off for playing under our expectations this year need to understand that. We have a good problem at that position, unlike many others.

zod, since you know beason better than anyone here...you think that beason would restructure?

i think that's about the only way we keep him around.

he's a very valuable commodity and huge in the leadership department. he makes for incredible depth at Mike if needed and could provide for one incredible rotation among the LB corps. i think statistically he's played better on the outside than on the inside and i remember some saying he was better suited for it. i'm not sure about that, but i think it would be a shame to let him or any of the other LBs go.


Beason is a must have. At the right price that is. Same with Gamble. Get those two back and healthy and we are a better team.

To add to that bolded part. It would also give Rivera 4 quality LBs for that hybrid 3-4 he loves. Which our Dline is proving to not be needed.

I love Kuechly. He's a beast.

But, the Urlacher comparisons just aren't all that apt. Urlacher is a HUGE MLB. The guy is like 6'5" 260. He's basically DE sized and had so much speed that he played safety and returned punts in college. He was a freak. I say "was" because age and injury have taken their toll. He's still a damn good LB, but he's a mere shadow of what he once was.

Kuechly just doesn't compare physically. But, Kuechly is well ahead of the curve as a rookie. Honestly, our own Jon Beason pre-injury isn't a bad comparison.

Anyone know the reason Luke wears what look to be wrist guards right above his gloves every time he's on the field? Are they wrist guards? Just not sure and have been wondering.
