Beason "I want to stay where I'm loved"

72 posts in this topic

So Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacer (sp?) are not important cause they dont rush the passer?

I'm assuming your asking this question with the intention that they both are in their prime.

Ray Lewis and Urlacher in their prime were transcendent. Even if I had both of those top 5 All time ILBers in their primes, I would not expect a Superbowl unless a had great QB's and a great pass rush to go with it. Which in that case I would expect a Superbowl because I had a great QB and a great pass rush.

I think that Beason is a team player and that he will do whatever benefits the team, within reason of course...

He probably will re-do his contract, but to insinuate that we need to let a guy go as good as Beason is absurd. Apparently everyone just chose to forget about Davis's return from 3 ACL injuries. If Davis can return from multiple injuries in less than two years then so can a younger and more athletic Jon Beason.

Do you even watch football? Beason is younger, but more athletic? What team have you been watching? Davis is an athletic freak. Beason is a jacked mother fuger for sure, but strength and athletism arent the same thing.

The huddle doesn't know the difference between a 3-4 OLB and a 4-3 OLB.

Exactly...Huddle Criteria: we gots 4lbers that are good..wait! 3-4!!!

We will see when he's asked to take a pay cut and give up the d to Luke.

I say we trade Beason some team might take a gamble since he's still young 27.I think he could get us a 3rd round pick easily.

Sure Beason would restructure... But will he take a paycut? People are acting like they are the same and one is easely done and the other... well rarely happen.

Restructuring him would take some of his salary and give him them upfront in a bonus but damn it would be stupid to give him more guaranteed money with his health. So that more or less leave two options:

1) Let him play out his stupid contract and hope for the best

2) Make him take a paycut or cut/trade him with a hugh caphit but then we can look ahead

Either the Panthers og Beason is gonna make a tough decision this offseason

Beason/Keek/Davis that's a dream team lb core right there. Glad to hear he wants to stay. Probably gonna have to restructure that contract a bit, but Jons a team player. It'll get worked out.

And if we put faith in Beason and TD being healthy and that they will make up our LB corp with Luke going forward......that will be silly. Beason and TD's bodies are breaking down. Can't depend and gamble on both staying on the field.

Last 3 years.....neither has been on a field enough

No team is going to trade for the highest paid MLB in the NFL......that has been on IR almost the entire two last seasons.

Too big of gamble for an injury plagued LB that may never be what he was if he some how can stay on the field

I agree with everything you said, but would like to add one other consideration.

This is Luke's defense now. He is going to be making the on field calls, he is going to be the guy rallying the troops, he is going to be the leader. That's not to say there isn't room for leadership from other guys like TD and/or Jon, but they will be in a support role rather than the primary leadership position.

I'm just not convinced Jon is going to accept this and be happy in that kind of role.
