Obviously you have to put Keek and Beason where they play the best, being the two best LB's. Davis can do w/e the team needs him to do, not like he is an investment or anything. IMO, Davis isn't going to see much time on field, there will be a LB that steps up and take a lot of reps away from him.

If Davis's knees hold up, there's no linebacker on our roster that will take snaps from him. He's an absolute monster.

Beason wasn't all that good at WLB in 2010 either. I'm not overly enthused about moving TD from the spot where he's flourished to make room for a guy who wasn't nearly as good when he played there, but camp will tell the story.


Beason was quite solid at Will in 2010 from what I remember. I think he's better off there as opposed to Sam. Davis is bigger and more athletic anyway.

Davis is amazing at what he does what are you talking about?

I found the article on CBS that portrays Beason as selfish and not a team player based on him no restructuring.

 

Joe Person (take it for what you will) has indicated that Beason has not been approached to restructure, so my question is why would a player just give up millions of dollars without being asked?

 

That's just being foolish.

 

Regardless, Beason has stated that he is willing to do whatever it takes to make the team better.

A healthy TD > healthy Beason at WLB....and Beason admits it

Yep.  Davis was an absolute beast at WLB in Meeks' Tampa 2 style defense in 2009.  He looked great last year too and I think should be even better this year.  Now it comes down to, how much of a downgrade is it to put Beason at SLB and how well can Davis play there?

Ive said it for a while, i think Beason would make an outstanding strongside backer. Hes easily the best stack and shed linebacker and the one that is better fit to take on blocks. I think keeping Kuechly and Davis where they are would be the best move. Beason can still make plays at Sam. Look at Anderson for proof of that. He led the team in tackles and had set the franchise record for tackles in a season at Sam. And he was arguably playing out of position as well (better wlb likely).

TD makes a better Sam than Beason. Id feel much better with TD covering the TEs than Beason.

This is also true.

Remember like the six games in a row that Michael Vick beat our ass.

And then we drafted Thomas Davis.

And that SOB was like Vick's vapor rub, cus all of a sudden Vick didnt make me so sick.
