Very true. But, in a 3-4 nickle, you have the 3 down lineman, 1 rush LB, 1 ILB, 2 safeties, and 3 CBs. So, how would that look?

---- Smith---Cody---Watt
Barwin/Reed----Cush
Jackson----McCain----Joseph
Quinn---Manning

In order for Kuechly to play, you would need to pull off Barwin/Reed or McCain. Would you be willing to pull off a pass rusher or extra DB for a cover LB? Kinda hard to go that route in my mind.
It's not easy to win playing with only 10 men.
