Default Anybody notice?

The Packers moved Matthews from OLB to ILB for last nights game against the Bears? The experiment worked well---11 tackles, 1.5 sacks (would have been 2.5 if they hadn't taken one away for a suspect penalty).

Brooks Reed?

Lots of us think Reed would be great at ILB. He's got the size to handle the punishment, smarts to diagnose the play, enough speed to handle pass coverage on RB's and TE's and zone coverages, and enough speed to blitz the middle. I think he could take Cushings job.

There's a reason he's not playing inside backer. Reed is a tweener that worked well in college but has no real position in the NFL. In an ideal world he would be relegated to special teams and backup duties.

Nothing I've seen from Reed tells me he has the instincts to play MLB/ILB.

IDK..not much of a tape guy, but I've read before and heard on T.V that he's pretty good at the non-showy stats. Containing, covering, something about making a lot of reads in a short amount of time. Maybe that was Wade's D though...

With the emergence of Mercilus & the expected (someday) return of Clowney, I could see Reed moving inside at some point this year. You always want to put your best players on the field. If Cushing can ever get healed enough to stay on the field, I believe Reed would compliment Cushing very well.

So his so-so apple production has convinced you he wouldn't be able to make good oranges?

I think Tarpinian is a great compliment to Cushing & doubt Reed could do it any better. The problem is we don't have a replacement for Cushing... we may not even have Cushing.

In years past I was supportive of moving Reed inside. I didn't (don't) care for what he's doing on the outside & we didn't have any decent ILBs next to Cushing. Now... we've got decent to good players to compliment Cush.

I no longer care about moving Brooks inside.

Was not the same thing because Cushing was palying the SAM in a 4-3 where
the edge rushers are the DEs while Mathews was moved from a position where he was an edge rusher to playing ILB where he's not. Very surprising, and I suspect that Mathews wasn't too pleased with the switch.

Cushing played a combo role where he was the edge rusher about half the time.
