Only safeties can cover a guy like Graham.

Give Kuechly another year and he'll be covering TEs like Graham and Gonzalez with more proficiency. Luke was a highly touted FS in high school.

lol, ok if Beason or Davis go down and we have crap play from a 'dime a dozen' player we got, I don't want to hear any complaining. This nonchalant attitude about the OLB position is unwarranted.

It's about Quality, having a quality back up is essential. Especially in the LB core. Davis and Beason's health are suspect. I'm hoping for the best but this "we can get another just like that" notion is ridiculous.

i agree

Watch his tape. Kuechly has grand potential as a coverage LB too. He's not as fast Willis but he won't have to be.

If I recall, Senn filled in at MLB for Beason when he went down before we drafted Keachly. I did a a good good job and that is one reason we brought him back. the other reason is for special teams. If we can pick up a DT, our LB position gets much better.

Senn is a fuggn "Special Team" player dammit!

that's one of the reasons that i want a big safety rather than some sub 6' guy.

you need a big safety covering the big pass catching TEs.

That makes no sense. When our current linebackers like Davis are still getting the job done, let's get rid of the guys who are making plays, because they're "out of style" wtf? That's like getting rid of Tom Brady or Drew Brees because mobile qb's are 'in'.

All we need is a safety that can cover, and hang with the best of'em.
