I have seen some tempered enthusiasm on here about Kuechly, which I think is reasonable for a rookie. But I can't help thinking that if I am watching that game last night and not aware that Luke is a rookie, he was by far the best defensive player out there.
I don't think I have ever seen a more fluid and sure handed tackler. Nose for the ball, smart, great in coverage. I don't think we have seen anyone like him yet in a Panthers uniform. I know, thats saying a lot with guys like Sam Mills, Dan Morgan, Jon Beason, etc. But as far as the complete package goes, this kid has it all.
I get a football boner thinking about a Kuechly/Beason/Davis combo.
We may have a DROY on our hands here folks. It is a very real possibility.
