This can be said for all our ILBs going back to Demeco.
No we don't.
We need lb's with talent and ability. Bradie. James is not a real good player. He's below average. Same thing for the rest of the bunch.
Odds are you're not going to find a player that is great against the run and pass and can blitz. If yoy find a guy like that he'd be Brian Cushing.
We need to upgrade the talent level and as far as I'm concerned mauluga fits that bill. He's a better player than every MLB we have on the roster not named Cushing. And while he may not be the best in coverage, this scheme will put him in position to succeed.
How many mlb's can check Arian or od 1 on 1?
Don't let their stupid defensive coordinator cloud your judgement. We don't ask our guys to do that.
