"The best player by far to ever wear the Panthers uniform." ? No way is Luke the best player "by far" to ever wear the Panthers uniform. Yes Luke is one of the better players but the Panthers have had some pretty good players on both sides of the ball and still do!

If anyone wants my autograph let me know. Check out my combine video on youtube. I can help the Panthers win a superbowl.

Wow, that's quite a compliment for such a young player.

He is not the best player ever to wear a Panthers uniform. How quickly you forget about Smitty.

Kuechly still needs to be a top guy for a few more seasons before we anoint him as the best Panther ever. Right now, I would still say Steve Smith is the best player they have had (if one looks at on-field performance only). On the defensive side of the ball, Julius Peppers is still the best the Panthers ever had. If Kuechly keeps it up and improves his pass defense a little bit, then he will be in the conversation. That said, Kuechly is remarkably accomplished for being so early into his career.

Congrats Luke. Seems like the Carolina D should be ranked in there somewhere on the list. Only 3 defenses would be on the list. Carolina tops! GO PANTHERS!!!

Mr Newton, it would be a pleasure to block for you and to drink your juice. Tell Mr Rivera to look at my combine video.
