    Can’t imagine being 28, retired, and set for life.

    Has to be a weird feeling. Do you feel accomplished or get stir-crazy?

    Loved watching him and Brees go back and forth on presnap adjustments... until he got it right and blew up the play. Hell of a player. Also glad he was able to walk away. The image of him crying of the field stuck with me. I hope his brain isn’t already fucked up.

    Kind of hard to fathom that he is likely the best Panthers defensive player I will ever see and, lord willing, I’ve got 50 years to go. He was on another level physically and mentally than everybody else on the field. I could go on, but my favorite play of his was the first of two (on back to back plays) interceptions against Dallas on Thanksgiving during the Super Bowl season.

    Dropped into deep middle zone, cut off his drop midway when he saw how the route tree was breaking, figured out where Romo was trying to go with the ball, read that receivers route, broke to the spot where the ball was going to be delivered, all without watching the quarterback, picks his head up as he gets to the spot, picks the ball clean and houses it. It was as great a play as a middle linebacker could ever make, and the fact is he did it pretty routinely throughout this career.

    I really hope he has a normal and healthy life, but I worry about those concussions. He’s an all time favorite

    I just talked to a buddy of mine, and he asked me if I thought LK was a Hall of Famer.. Without hesitation I said 100% first ballot, and I wasn't kidding. He absolutely is.

    Kuechly could be a hell of a DC. Went to see the panthers at saints his rookie year and every play before the ball was snapped he was already 2 steps in the direction the play was going by the time Brees got the ball in his hands.

    I would be very concerned about the concussions. Maybe that's what brought this on.
