Luke Kuechly retires

Recommended Posts

Saw something that said he got engaged sometime last year.

Can't help wondering if that has any bearing on his decision.

That is incredible hyperbole. Luke is one of the best middle linebackers that ever played and he was the heart and soul of our defense that for many years was top 10 in the league. And everyone knew it. How it that wasted? Because he didn't win a Superbowl? He is far from the only great player who didn't win one. It isn't like he sat in the bench and didn't play. That would be wasted. I don't know what the whole wasted talent complaint is about at all. He is revered in Carolina and was one of the faces of the franchise. 

I think you're being obtuse. I'm not saying that Luke was a wasted talent. Just that we, as a team, have wasted talent - A LOT of talent. I'm not sure why that's so hard. Yes, Luke is far from the only great player to not win a Super Bowl, that doesn't change my point. My statement wasn't isolated to Luke either - cumulatively, we have wasted a load of talent. We haven't achieved anything respective to our talent level, ever. The whole wasted talent comment is directly related to being colossal underachievers with regards to the generational talents we've had on the field together. I'm not exactly sure why that's confusing to you.

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply but he was wasted in my personal opinion. Personal accolades aside, we have wasted an immense amount of talent on this team. Think of the generational talents that we've drafted and what we've managed to do with them, from a team perspective. I could give two shits about how many All-Pro's any single member of our team has. The goal of an NFL team isn't about getting individual players an award. Luke will go down as possibly THE best MLB in NFL history. Awesome. It's still a waste from a team perspective.

Pep, smitty, cam, and Luke. All HOF talent. Nothing to show for it. Cmc is next

if jamos hadn't had to go run running his mouth, the team may have not pushed this out for a little while and Luke may have even changed his mind

AT THE VERY LEAST we could've just enjoyed the Brady news for a little bit

 

screw that guy, man. 

 

 

Just so you know, this was rumored in the AllPro back on Jan, 7th. Some knew this was in the air.

If Luke pulls a Kalil, I'll lose my poo 

He’s totally going to mark my words. He want some out of this shithole. You’ll see him in a NE next year.

Nothing you say is confusing to me, I just don't agree that anytime you have a talented team and don't win the Superbowl, you are wasting talent. With one team winning an inordinate amount of Superbowls during Keuckly's career, using your standard then most teams wasted talent. I agree that the goal is winning a Superbowl sure but for the 31 out of 32 teams each year that don't win, it isn't a disaster or a huge waste of talent. The defense was our strength. You could make a better case if you were talking offense instead of defense

The Shaq contract makes a lot more sense now. I don't think the Panthers were caught off guard by this.

I don't think so either. That wouldn't be the Luke we all know. I imagine Tepper's last talk with Luke was along the lines of, that he's 100% behind whatever Luke decides and that there will always be a place for him anywhere he wants in the Panthers organization any time he wants.

I am going to miss the hell out of him. He made watching presnap so much fun, who would've thought. I am so sad but happy at the same time that it is his decision of what's best for him. Thank you, Luke, for the years you gave us.

We’re not winning jack anytime soon. Might as well draft best OT this year and tank for Trevor Lawrence next year
