Thoughts on Kuechly

I guess maybe most rookies react non-shalant as he did but didn't he seem very unexcited about coming to Carolina? I mean I don't expect backflips and cartwheels but he didn't look real happy getting picked at number 9. What do you think?

Could it be he is a die hard patsy and was hoping to fall to them?

Re: Thoughts on Kuechly

I actually heard his exact words when he was interviewed were "I'm Stoked", so while he may not have shown emotion on camera, I think he is happy to be with our team. Besides, for some people I think it is more of a sign of relief to get drafted. Or perhaps it was just a shock thing and he was more numb that he got taken as high as he did. Obviously this is all speculation, and there is no way to know what was going through his head when he got picked.

I am going to look at him being picked as a good thing, and I think he will work hard and play well for us. So to sum it up, my thoughts on Kuechly are nothing but positive.

I got the impression that the kid was operating on little to no sleep and was running on empty once the media got their shot at him (think he said his house guests stayed alot longer than he expected the night of the draft & he said he got a couple 3 winks when on his flight to QC)

Hope so but watch the film on his reaction. He gives new meaning to the word "stoked". It felt more like pulling teeth than a top 9 pick surprise. Hopefully he steps up and leads this defense alongside BeasTon. Anxious to see who plays mike and sam. LB will once again be our strong suit on this team.

Re: Thoughts on Kuechly

My thoughts on Kuechly...I'm damn sure glad we got him!!  I am praying that Thomas Davis has fully recovered from his injuries, but the thought of him going down early is one that I just couldn't get away from.  When you look at it, it is a LONG shot for him to be able to compete for an entire season.  Enter Kuechly, and those worries are extinguished!

Platooning at linebacker is, IMO, a great idea.  It should reduce TD's injury risk significantly while maintaining a high level of productivity on the field.  Picking Kuechly makes a lot of sense when you realize what a vital role he will play immediately on the team.

It won't be till next year that Davis will be 100%, if he doesn't get hurt again this year.  With that, we NEED Kuechly.  I'm glad to see him here and I hope that he can live up to his hype.

Re: Thoughts on Kuechly

I believe in modern day miracles as they fit into the Big Guys plans...I hope it still is a part of TD's big plan but football maybe a a part of TD history at this point...3 ops in 3 yrs on same knee...again miracles can happen and I hate to be a doubter...but I am glad to have Kuechly and think it most wise that the brass drafted a LBer!

(LOL...I would have prefered a DE or DT at #9 and than TB's new WLB LaVonte David as a Panther in the second round...but from here on out I hope Kuechly always always out plays David in the Car -v- TB games to come!!!!)
