This times 100.


No he took the low route when he should've stayed because Thomas was covering the low route. Keek should've backed up and settled into zone. The safeties were covering the fades to the receivers while the linebackers covered the middle routes. Watch again and you'll see what I'm talking about. Keek could've had an int if he didn't jump on Douglas.

If you are saying it was Luke's job to cover Gonzo 30 yards down field then I am telling you that is a stupid ass assignment.

 

He is a MLB. not a safety.

 

There is not a MLB in the league that would win that matchup 1 on 1.

Exactly. The assignment was for Mikell, who went after the outside receiver for reasons known only to God (because he sure as hell wasn't going to do anything to a guy ten yards away from him.)

That TD wasn't thirty yards. If that's what your referring to here then I'm sorry but it wasn't close to thirty yards. If it isn't then I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.

Officially it was a 17 yard pass but it was well into the endzone. Probably 25 yards total.

Not sure who missed the assignment but Luke wasn't happy with himself after the play.  Players / coaches came up to him on the sidelines and he wanted nothing to do with it.  I'm pretty sure he had the middle on the compressed field.

Not to debate the specific Defensive play call but iirc we drafted Luke over a safety specifically for his coverage abilities against TE's, especially Gonzo and Graham.

 

It is not outside the realm of possibility to expect Luke to cover that route/zone and to cover it well.  But either he or Mikell were not on the same page.

Derrick Johnson, Navarro Bowman, Patrick Willis.

 

He's amazing, and everything is an opinion. If you think he's the best that's okay. I may disagree, but that by no means your wrong.

 

I like all three of them. Dont get me wrong. I would put Daryl Washington up there too.

 

Patrick Willis may be the only MLB that I have over Kuechly at this point. Johnson, Bowman, and Washington are better athletes than Kuechly, but KEEK brings more to your defense. He knows DEFENSE, read and audible plays, and position his players in the right place. The rest of the guys doesnt do that. Bowman, Johnson, and Willis has tremendous players all around them. They're just out there making plays. Luke Kuechly may probably be the smartest of all LB in the NFL. Even in his worse game, he's still am able to contribute largely on defense.

 

KC could lose a DJ. SF could lose a Bowman or Willis and there would be no drop offs in their defense. I dont want to think about losing KEEK for a single game (not jinxing KEEK). That's how much he means to this defense. He's the engine.

this kuechly argument has me thinking about the "2/10. has pointy elbows. would not bang" arguments.

nitpicking at its finest.

he is the best mike in the league. not perfect. not immune to getting beat on one play when left alone to cover one of the best pass catchers in league history, aruably the best TE to ever play the game, and future HoFer.

but still he's the best in the league.
