Beason may not return to be a starter

I think the biggest problem with fielding Beast is the fact that our expectations are so high of him.  Considering his resume as a LB for us, you figure you set him an assignment and forget about him and let him take care of business (unfortunately he hasn't been taking care of business).  If we put a guy like Blackburn out there (who is an athletically limited player) or Klein (green and inexperienced) we know going into the play we have a slight liability (hell i'd rather run at beason, klein or blackburn rather than luke or td) and can gameplan to get help over there.  Also I don't know if you noticed but TD was blitzing a really good amount last week with Chase in.

 

Our best bet is to try and trade him to a desperate team right NOW, even for a poor draft pick.  I think Beason was a tad overrated in his prime.  He was well above your average linebacker and was good in all facets of the game, but he lacked that true superstar spark - the ability to take over games.  Seeing Luke now and last year completely changes your expectations on what a modern linebacker should look like on the field.  When Luke shoots a gap and gets a clean shot on some sucker you feel the hit in your nuts.  You can smell the poo that sucker just emptied into his pants.  Beason would more or less drag guys down and make a solid tackle, while a guy like Luke picks people up, repackages them into some weird shape you'd see a contortionist perform and puts them on their back.

I have always been a beast fan but, I knew after this last serious surgery this might happen. Hope he sticks around as a cheap rotation player

he will not win it back here.

 

The job is Blackburn's to lose. Beason will not get healthy enough this year to win his position back. 

 

Maybe a little rotation but that's about it.  Beason will leave at the end of the season... he want to play

 

his natural position the mike knowing that he will not win it back here.

Have you guys forgotten that Davis guy playing at linebacker?  Don't count Beason out yet.

 

Microfracture surgery takes 12-18 months to recover from fully. 

 

Split time with Blackburn and Beason. Evaluate at the end of the season.

 

Well say.

Blackburn played ONE (1) game as a starter... and...it was against his old team, which he more then easily can recognize formations and plays ect... and we happened to win that game. How does that mean all of you jump on the Blackburn wagon? Just because we won the game? won 1 game? oh boy

He's a 9 year veteran who has started more than just ONE (1) game.

The only reason Blackburn played so much was because he knows all of the Giants plays.

Blackburn played well in the preseason, and some of us recommended that he start over Beason.  So it's no surprise people are wanting him to start now.  My question is can Beason play special teams?  I don't know if he can run the whole field and cover on kick offs and punts.  If that is the case, I'm wondering if we should replace Beason with AJ Klein if Blackburn becomes the starter.  It's a tough time for Beason, but I'm sure he will get another shot elsewhere.

Blackburn is a consistent player. A lot can be said for that.

 

You don't know what you're gonna get from Beason anymore. And he's gone from the surest tackler on the team (not saying much), to a guy that misses tackles to give up big plays very, very often. He's always out of position - I think he's still adjusting to the new position, and I think his shoulder is still a problem. He needs more time to heal and learn. Right now, he's not starting caliber. Good OCs will find and exploit him. Alot of the Bills lose can be attributed to Beason's play.

It's not hearbreaking.. but it is sad.. He wants to be out there, but can't.. wanting to live but dying because your body gives out is heartbreaking

Jesus this thread got somber really frickin quick...

As you can tell by my member photo I am a big Beason fan but I think the best player should play.

I think Beason will improve as the season progresses. Right now Blackburn should start and Beason should spell him for reps.

I have to feel bad for the guy but its up to the coach to put his best 11 guys on the field.
