My thinking exactly. Its part and parcel why the patriots ate us alive...
Leave both of our sub par lb's in...put 1 of em in coverage & exploit em
take a lb out in favor of a cb...run it down our throats.
& that's just when the patriots weren't running uptempo and catching us switching out players trying to match up.
Getting Cush back alleviates some of this, but getting a guy next to him that can be good in coverage at the lb spot would be huge.
It's 1 of the reasons SF is so good on defense although Willis does come out at times on 3rd downs depending on the matchup. Otherwise, he and Bowman are on the field controlling the middle of the field every single down for SF.
Lol at the...Mauluga suggestion...coverage was a big knock on him coming out and it's still a big knock on him 3 years later.
