One thing to consider, Keek could get even better O_0

Im with the other guy, Keek vs Morgan wouldve been a better comparison. Im starting to realize how young some of you dudes are. Lol


That would actually been a much better thread.

I see a lot of similarities between Morgan and Keek, but I think that Keek is smarter and quicker, but doesnt hit as hard.

Plus I dont think that Keek will be plagued with injuries either.

After thinking about it, and looking at the roster, I think I would take Keek over Peppers right now.

We have a really good duo with Johnson and Hardy already. I think that Johnson could have a similar career to Peppers if he can stay healthy and hungry. The same could be said for Hardy's potential as well.

I'm just curious as to what the LB lineup will be this year with the return of Beason.

right now, yeah. but this guy said JP in his prime.

Yea... JP in his prime was probably the best defensive player in football for 2 or 3 years.

What???? LMFAO!
Peppers wasn't GREAT? He was a great DE for the Panthers. He now is a good player for the Bears.

I'm guessing you never seen Peppers in a Panthers uniform.

I seen peppers play plenty even at the stadium and I also remember him being a ghost in the playoffs.

Absolutely, WHEN peppers played, he was amazing....but the guy wasn't an every down player. Sure he had talent, yes he made amazing plays, and yes OC would poo themselves trying to game plan for him. But I do not believe that he made the impact on every down like Keek does.

Also, here is Peppers stats. I know 2007 was one year, but it was in the middle of his "prime"

Keeks stats
http://espn.go.com/n...38/luke-kuechly

you said peppers in his prime the fact you think bringing up the 07 season helps your arguement shows how shotty it is to begin with peppers from 04, 05, and 06 was probably the best defensive player in football I wouldn't even put keek top 5 right now much less #1.

End thread

Will say as others have said a Morgan v Keek or Beason V Keek would have made more sense

You can't compare the two...

One has a freak physical skill set that is near unmatched.....the other's game is dictated by instincts and brains. Two polar opposites really. Luke has good measurables but they aren't what make him special

someone put luke's brain in a 24 year old peppers and see what the fug is up

Compare him with Morgan and I'd take Luke every day of the week. Morgan just couldn't stay healthy.

I wouldn't say Luke's brains as much as his character. Non-stop, bring it every play, fight til you're dead type approach to the game... If Peppers had that, he would have been considered one of the best defensive players in history. Much like we think of Butkus, Lawrence Taylor and Reggie White now.
