I'm not sure that would work because now you are saying they should play w/ basically an undersized LB. Sure he may have the height but not the weight or strength to fend off blockers. The concept sounds good, but the Texans just need another young nimble ILB w/ speed. They exist, its just about finding the right one imo. Plus, as I said earlier Cushing is that player. Whoever starts next to him would not be in coverage on obvious passing downs. My whole point was Ryans is better then James & if Ryans salary had become an issue I 100% believe he would still be a Texan.
