Beason may not return to be a starter

to all those saying with 100% certainty Beason won't ever come back, your memories are terrible. See Thomas Davis.

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.

As for Beason, this is disheartening. I love the guy and he's been a Beast for us since he arrived to Carolina but if he believes he's done then there's nothing to debate. He should retire next year and become our new Linebacker Coach.

too early to say, havnt given the Beast enough rehab time. Same doubters in this thread doubted that TD could come back. Put a pro athlete's back to the wall and see how they respond. A allstar like that might just surprise a lot of you. . . . again.

 

for now Beason definitely is not 100% back.

 

 

edit: and some of you were curious why he's not wearing a C.

We all love the beast but sometimes its time for people to move on...especially with the money we've paid him and the time he's actually spent on the field that last few years....Hey I have a Beason jersey and will continue to wear it to games..............but sometimes its time to move on...use him when we need....

I'll always pull for beaston no matter what. The man has had to battle through some serious injuries and wants to do his best. For that I'm always thankful.

I love Jon as much as anyone, but he doesnt have it right now. The only play in Buffalo where he tried to tackle the t.e and couldn't get him and just poked at the ball was hard to watch. His time should be severely limited until he proves he deserves otherwise.

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
