I won't call him equal to Cushing, but Tim Dobbins is no joke.
He's now the best ILB on this team. And he stopped Ray Rice cold in his tracks in the playoff game last year when Cushing had to leave the game.
Cushing and Dobbins are pretty close to being the same guy, tbh. Not equals, but not that far apart in on-field play.
