that shiitty field they were playing on last night didn't help much with the missed tackles. Ron said he thought it contributed to some

Ray Lewis in his prime missed tackles, took bad angles, slipped, etc.

Also, Luke is a film rat....if he overplays something he will get it corrected

Film and gym rat are code for white lol

everything is being distributed throughout the O and the D this year. They have learned that no matter which player is focused on the others must step up.

That's why we are winning. Take Luke out and Davis and Blackburn will come in. Same on O with Smitty and the 2nd and 3rd receivers.

Good grief this place can be frustrating.  You guys who are actually serious about your criticisms and concerns, name one MLB in the NFL, or a draft prospect, with more skills, all-around better performance, leadership qualities, and more upside (don't forget Luke is just 22 and just now coming off his rookie year) that you would rather have.  His pass coverage skills are already showing substantial improvement, and you can take it to the bank that if he does have trouble shedding blocks, that will get fixed as well.  Other rational posters have already explained why the stats seem off. RTFP's.

What about him showing a lapse in his biggest weakness? The pass over the middle to James? Completely out of place as have up a huge play.

Shitty rookie QB and undrafted rookie RB ran that on him.

And once again it was against St. Louis too.

 

He slipped on that pass play. Turf might have had something to do with it.

 

Glennon may be a rookie on a losing team but he is completing his passes at almost 59% with a 2:1 TD to INT ratio. He hasn't been horrible for a rookie.

 

Saw a stat last night where he has thrown more pass attempts than any other rookie in his first x amount a games which is saying a lot after Lucks season last year.

 

James has a lot of potential too. Liked him as a late round prospect. He comes from good stock, he's a cousin of Edgerrin James.

Oh I know who mike James is, the U is my college. I said in another thread if any RB was gonna burn us I wouldn't be as mad if it was James.

Still two no name rookies running an effective play on the way in the biz.

Yeah, I think last year Luke had almost twice the tackles as Davis last year. This year they are about even.

 

And don't forget TOP. By us controlling the clock and protecting the ball were giving up fewer drives to the opposition.

Not to mention teams having to almost abandon the run by the second half in like all 4 of our wins. That's less run stops for Luke where the DB's are more likely targeted.

Well Luke slipped on that play, all James had to do was catch the ball and he had about 15 yards automatic. Still managed to chase him down. It could have turned into a Dan Morgan situation the turf was that bad.

 

While Tampa has lost all 7 games they have been putting up some yards. Hell we kept a guy that had 51 pass attempts under 250 yards. And 150 of those were garbage time at the end of both halves with us in that shitty prevent. In their house. They had less the 50 rushing yards too.

i think he's missed more tackles this season than he did all of last year

 

kinda weird

 

still see him calling out shifts and whatnot tho and he seems to have stepped up as a leader/has the intangibles, so not too worried about it

Oh for the love of god.

 

He's fine. Luke just isn't making eye-popping splash plays because Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short are bonafide badasses, and opposing teams are game planning around him. That's a great thing. Now, did he miss a tackle or two last night? Yep, but meh. He'll make up for it next week.

He did it last year. Why not this year?

^^ Clown Comment

Kuechly still leads the NFL in tackles since the start of 2012.

Didn't have a good game?.....

We have a top 3 defense....I wonder who runs the show on the field....LOL. He does more than just run around blowing up offenses.

He's been awesome since the day he was drafted

I'm just answering your question. You asked if anyone ever came around a mountain of man like Davin Joseph. I said Keek did it last year. Can't handle the truth, don't ask such silly question. ;)
