Who is more important...Luke or Cam?

It doesn't surprise me, that Panther fans that haven't had an elite qb til cam, are going to lean towards the quarterback. the Panthers have also been blessed with great linebackers. So they feel it is easy to come across stud middle linebackers. They don't know any different. Ask teams that struggle to field good defense.

So are you trying to say we are wrong in saying QB >>>>> LB?

Newton is far more important than Kuechly. I LOVE Kuechly, don't get me wrong. But QB over MLB all day.

Ask the Saints if defense matters (and they had one of the league's best QBs)

Team building is my framework for the question.

Mind you, there's no way I'd minimize the importance of the QB spot, but I don't like an unbalanced approach to roster building. And like I said, I build from the lines first.

Where is ANYONE in this thread saying defense doesn't matter?

Of course it matters. Doesn't change the fact an elite QB is much more vital to a teams success than an elite MLB. How did San Fran do until they got competent QB play? Or Chicago with Urlacher? Or Washington with Fletcher (albeit he was never elite)? Or Arizona this past season with Daryl Washington? Etc.?

Nobody is saying defense is irrelevant. Merely that QB is a lot more important. And they are right.

I always question individual position judgment questions in the context of a team sport, especially at the pro level.

Say you have a great QB? Cool. Stick him with mediocre receivers, a lousy offensive line and crummy backs and congrats, you have Archie Manning.

I don't see this discussion as much different than the ones where people ask if you'd rather have great covers or dominant pass rushers. You need both.

If it's discussion for the heck of it, fine, but it's not very realistic.

Cam and it isn't even close, we have Beason still on the team you know, 3 time probowler and 2 time all pro MLB apparently not many remember he is indeed on the team still and may be the better MLB.

I still can't figure out the complete ignoring of Beason being on the team with him being already a great MLB and proven leader on the team. Only way I can explain it is just a "new shinny" mentality. Kinda sad when you think about it.

Kuechly at MLB is our best option with Beason on the outside, unless we can move to a 3-4
