lets see here your logic: rookie MLB wins RDPOY > 3 time probowler 2 time all pro MLB

And you don't think that there will be a discussion at all at MLB? Gtfo

Excuse me for having a memory that goes back further then last season.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Rivera already seems set with Luke at MLB.

From the day Kuechly was drafted, this was fairly inevitable, but the job of massaging Beason’s feelings (he clearly prefers playing the middle, and is better there) was one the Panthers were careful with.

But now, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he thinks when Beason returns (his recovery from knee surgery is on target, and he’ll have shoulder surgery soon), he’ll come back as an outside linebacker.

“When you look at the different skill sets, I think Jon’s got the skill sets to play inside and outside a little bit more than Luke does. Luke’s skill set lends more toward being an inside guy. So we’ll see,” Rivera said, via Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer.

“It’s still a ways away. But I think we may have found something here. I think it’s one of those things that you do what’s going to be best for us.”

I love how fans want to reflect on the past with Jon, and even Deangelo. Sorry, but someones past isn't their present, Beason had knee surgery AND shoulder surgery, pile that on with a surgically repaired achilles. He will not be the same player he was, you can post all the workout videos you want, and highlight videos from the past but we're in the present.

then you guys have a bad case of the new shiney.

I'm not saying it won't be Luke but there will be a discussion about it.


Nope, it's more of a case of just one of the simplest rules of the NFL that dictates you can lose your job to injury rearing its ugly head again.

Beason was an all pro personally, but the defense never looked as good with him playing MLB as it does with Luke. Plus he's been hurt the past two years with a major injury and it's kind of a big deal.

You people really should be ashamed of yourselves. poo like this is why we're known for being an awful fan base. Jon Beason has done nothing but great things for this team yet you all have already turned on him like he's some scrub. Maybe he'll get cut and go to a team where fans actually appreciate their great players like Pittsburgh.

sometimes we as fans also get to caught up in being fans of players....

Beason has played 5 games in two years...he isn't going to be in old All Pro form for 2013 either most likely.

Simply a lot of money for very little back. Yeah, poo happens but if you are a Carolina fan more than a Beason fan....he needs to be adjusted

Luke is the Mike

End of story

Good luck to Beason even earning a spot on the field


Beason earning a spot is no question. Even a injured Beason is better than a healthy Anderson. Anderson probably was the worst contract on the team besides Beasons.
