Beason: NFC Defensive Player Of Month

Panthers linebacker Jon Beason, in only his second pro season, was named NFC defensive player of the month for October.

He's the first Panthers player to win the award since defensive end Julius Peppers in October 2006. The only other Carolina linebacker to be so honored was Sam Mills in November of 1995 and '96.

Beason helped the Panthers to a 3-1 record in October to put them at 6-2 going into this weekend's bye.

He led the defense in October with 37 tackles and two interceptions, one of which he returned 44 yards in last Sunday's 27-23 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Nice job by Beason...he has been the man for this defense! He's definitely becoming a leader on this team in a hurry.

It's about time that Beason got the recognition he deserves. He is only getting better and in a few years he will be compared to Ray Lewis.

Beason is overrated. They should trade him while he still has value. I just be keeping it real.

How long do we have Beason signed for? I hope someone is working on a long-term deal for him to be the cornerstone of the franchise.

Real, I'm suprised that you have the intelligence to post a complete thought. You fail.

Is that really how you feel? Or do you just grave the attention and you get some sort of weird, fanatical satisfaction out of it? John Beason is ever as great a player was as Dan Morgon with none of the injury prone fragility.

Beason is beast!

Keeping It Real is overrated. They should ban him before he really says something stupid. Oh, wait...too late. We just be keeping it really real.

Congrats Beason!

Beason's under contract through the 2011 season. Surprisingly, he only has $500K in incentive bonuses available. So not only was he a steal in that we were able to get him after trading down, picking up a pick in the process, but he's also VERY affordable.

Posted by: Michael Procton | Oct 31, 2008 2:05:16 PM

He's very affordable right now, lets hope he does not ever hold out. He has all-pro written all over him.

OHHHH... I get it... KIR was joking haha... I hope!!!

John Beason isn't a linebacker. John Beason is a FOOTBALL PLAYER. He is a champ. What a great 1st round draft pick 2 years ago. He has exceeded all my expectations, and he seems like the type of person who will keep working harder and getting better. Dan Mor-who? Will Wither-who?

Awww, the no-named he/she psychotic loser is back at it again. Posing to be something he/she/it isn't. I must have hurt her feeling by saying something negative about one of her heroes again. It's going to be ok he/she. Calm yourself now. Awwww.

Posted by: Keeping It Real | Oct 31, 2008 4:55:13 PM

BTW, it rocks to have a Panther get NFC player of the month. I honestly didn't even know that existed. Congrats.

Posted by: Keeping It Real | Oct 31, 2008 4:55:55 PM

Let's hope some other big team don't take him away from us. He's an absolute talent.

Posted by: Shadrach | Oct 31, 2008 4:57:46 PM

Hello "Real" ATTENTION WHORE! You ask for it and then post stupid sh!t. If only we could know who you "really" are so we could take care of your problem. I will glady help!

You have to ignore the little douche bag SYPRIS (aka KIR). He feeds off your negativity. Please, everyone that reads this....let's all ignore the numbnuts and see if it will go away. If nothing else, she will change her name again!

Posted by: josh | Oct 31, 2008 5:36:45 PM

We couldn't trade keeping it real b/c there is no value there. Just pack your bags and leave.

Posted by: keeping it really really real | Oct 31, 2008 5:37:27 PM

Beason is an absolute all-star and the pillar of the defense. It's about time the league starts giving him the respect and accolades he demands.

Posted by: coward | Oct 31, 2008 5:49:07 PM

You are the man John Beason, congratulations and keep on bustin' it. We all know you will.

Posted by: DanCat | Oct 31, 2008 5:56:48 PM


I didn't know clowns like you really existed.....lmao. You are a real simpleton! Good luck with your future postings.

Posted by: Sam | Oct 31, 2008 6:00:32 PM

Way to go Jon and Panthers. An excellent draft choice last year with the uncertainty of Morgan.

Posted by: par404 | Oct 31, 2008 6:04:06 PM


You are about as annoying as poison ivy on a pecker...are you the poison ivy or the pecker? You decide. I vote for pecker...lmao

Posted by: jared | Oct 31, 2008 6:30:07 PM

Way 2 go J.B. Help keep the defense straight..............
