"Luke Kuechly defines what a freak is."

Freak doesn't necessarily mean athletically freakish.

 

I think his combination of good athleticism and other worldly football IQ and instinct makes him a freak. It seems like he can see the play unfold even before it even happens, and he is athletic enough to react and execute what he sees he must do. It's a deadly combo.

we have a couple of "freaks" and a couple of "uber-freaks"......  hasn't always been the case.......  hope that the Flailing  Falcons will freak out when they see "the force" being unleashed upon them

Honestly, Tolbert may be more of a "freak" than any of them.  Someone with his wise and build should not be as fast and agile as him.  He's made some catches that WRs would have dropped.

 

 

On the This is Gross with Tolbert, Gross talks about Tolbert working out with the oline and mentions how he can out-squat everyone on the line or something along those lines.

Well, he said freak- he didn't say athletic or physical freak.

 

I think those two are synonymous in this context

 

The media scouting community collectively came when Luke went ruckshaw on Baltimore in preseason this year. There is so much groupthink with stuff like that and everyone was watching. That one strip fumble TD play was enough to cement Luke as a freak.

10+ tackles, 2 ints, and 1 sack vs. the pathetic Failcons then you're a FREAK Keek!

 

You've been caspering the last couple of weeks. SHOW UP BOY!

Kuechly's brain and fundamentals far outweigh his physical attributes. Same with most MLB's

you all do realize Thomas Davis and Kuechly are pretty much the same athletically right?   And apparently pretty much neck and neck with Willis too...

 

 

Kuechly is white though...  knock a few points for that.

Luke isn't the biggest MLB out there, take off a few points for that.

Lol funny that Luke is actually probably more athletic than Patrick Willis (who everyone considers a freak), but everyone just assumed that Willis was on some other tier due to Luke being white.  

 

Hell, Luke's combine is more impressive than Willis' in every facet except 40 time... 4.51 (Willis) to 4.58 (Luke).  Wow, big difference there.  Patrick is also an inch or two shorter.

So many of you have no idea how physically gifted Luke is.

 

 

He is a better physical specimen than any LB we have ever had.

Well, I'll be damned. I always thought he ran a 4.3 at the combine but it was actually at his pro day. I'll take combine numbers over pro day numbers any day as everyone is running in the same conditions.

Yep, much more pressure at a combine than a catered pro day. Good numbers mean more there.
