This irrelevant foolishness should have never occurred in the first place.

Semantical discussions, idiomatic judgements, and offended dignity add nothing to this forum. What's important here is football.

I suggest that this matter be closed, and the topic resumed. I'll help you with this. It has been brought up that Thomas Davis has been playing well, which is a welcome sign. Thomas Davis, a former high draft pick is in his eighth year, I believe? And still developing at that point. Regardless of an athlete's physical talents, there is of course in the vast complexity of NFL football a necessary period of growth, and improvement- a "learning curve", as they say- in which a player grows accustomed to processing the dozens of reads and keys flying around him on any given play. Thus, it is fair to grant any young player a grace period of a few years before he reaches his full abilities. I wonder if this is even more true for so cerebral and engaged a linebacker as Luke Kuechly. It might be argued that he is capable of seeing more than the ordinary rookie linebacker, and comprehending all the different ramifications- the many different ways in which a play might develop. It might be that, for his first year or two, Kuechly will be understandably burdened with the great body of knowledge thrown at him- perhaps more so than a less-analytical player might be. But eventually it will all come together for him, one year. And he may end up in a much better place than the run-of-the-mill linebacker lacking Kuechly's vision and understanding. Like, the Pro Bowl?

We'll see.

It's possible. Luke really should've gotten a sack in game one but he was held and it was called.

It's hard to tell how he's being used without reviewing the game tapes. He doesn't have a ton of tackles so he might be trying to blow up blockers and let the other 'backers swarm.

The team needs to tackle better as a whole and I think that's one of Luke's specialties so he could make a big impact through a simple thing like better tackling.

Nice edit! And I just might agree with you on that.

Here's hoping.
