Question? Luke is out starting middle linebacker, that's a given. I wouldn't want it any other way after seeing him out there. Who plays weak side linebacker and who plays strong side now? To my understanding Jon and Thomas Davis both have experience playing weak side. In your opinion, who has the better skill set to play strong side. Has Rivera hinted at where Jon will line up ? Thomas plays at such a high level at weak side I think you have to leave him there.

Keek and TD has earned their 2 starting spots and won't be changing. Beast has no choice but to play in the other spot.

Hey, everyone that wants Beason or any player to take a pay cut.

Consider this.

you will be at your current job at most 8 more years
you make good money
your performance has been great, then due to some illness it went down, you can still be a solid worker tho
the company wants to add more workers
they are likely to fire you next year
the company wants you to take a 20% cut in pay

do you do it?


If so, you are a moron.

Yeah you are probably right and we have no choice but to pay him with his contract. Is there a big difference in weak side and strong side linebacker? To my understanding in the 4-3 the weak side linebacker typically is faster, while the strong side linebacker usually lines up on the side of the tight end.

I'm still in full rage mode that Beason played with a partially torn achilles before they even had the specially made boot he was gonna wear. If it was a complete tearing risk and didnt even have a safety boot, he should of sat out or had surgery, oh well coulda woulda didnt. I agree though that the contract woulden't look so bad if they would have held him out.

Ignorance my ass.

Yes, I know he did, and he should redo it again...he still makes too much.

Go to hell.

Why "should" he? Are you willing to take a pay cut at work? I think not.

Because we stuck with him for all those injury plagued years when most teams would have cut him loose.

How many damn times do people need to ask about Beason restructuring? His contract is very, very difficult to do anything with. You can't cut him, you can't trade him and you can't restructure him.

I swear I want to punch the screen every time someone suggests we restructure Beason or someone talks about him doing the right thing for the team. Jesus Christ, where's the tylenol.


It seriously makes me smile to think that my post makes a grown(?) man want to punch his computer screen!
God I love winning at teh Internet!

Cut them all.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that Beason is #56 on the Forbes list of the WORLDS highest paid athletes....ohh and he has not played a game in a year
