nfl.com ranks linebackers by total tackles by its default. But yea, cush is having a decent season so far

Yep. NFL.com bases its ranking off tackles, which is not a great stat. To really see who is playing well, look at all of the stats.

In my mind, the #1 LB right now is Patrick Willis. He is 4th in the league in unassisted tackles (5 behind the leader), has only 4 assisted tackles, leads all LBs with 2 PDs, and has an int.

Remember a LB that gets a lot of tackles is getting them because the DL isn't doing its job. So, the best tackling LBs are either 3-4 LBs or 4-3 mikes with DLs that cant tackle(see Demeco in his first couple of years and Patrick Willis since he got to the NFL).

decent?

The first two weeks he had some horrible angles and let some big plays develop. The last 2 weeks he has been a force of NFL-impressiveness. Easily the top player on our D the last 2 weeks
