I liked Maualuga coming out of USC, he's the one I wanted at the time. But right now, sorry... don't see him as an upgrade over Dobbins much less Sharpton & he's definitely no replacement for DeMeco.

Sorry, just not seeing it.

We need to upgrade the talent, we need to get more athletic at the position, we need someone who is "great" in coverage.. Cushing is not. He's pretty good, but not "great"

We need a bigger Glover Quin for our next ILB.
He wouldn't be asked to do that here is the point.

And you are dreaming if you think you are going to find a MLB with the coverage skills if a safety to play in this defense.


If Cushing is healthy he's not coming off the field on passing downs. He's the coverage lb and he's actually pretty good at it.

The texans are going to get a guy to be the thumper in this defense and allow Cushing to be the playmaker. That's exactly why they let Demeco go and why he was seeing the field less and less here.

Mauluga fits what we need. Veteran, intense, hard hitting and won't be asked to make a bunch of plays against players he has no business guarding.

Mauluga would be a great fit next to Cushing in this 34. In the 43 he was asked to do more than he should have.
