Default Re: Cushing gets the Publicity, but is Joseph the real Defensive MVP ?

J. Joseph is the best CB on the Texans since Aaron Glenn

Just thinking that we could`ve snapped him for Slaton last season...

As to the question of the defensive MVP: JoJo changed this defense - perhaps not singlehandedly, but with his ability to stick with his guy, and KJ and Allen not having to cover the best WR, it really opened up the pass rush and really made the whole team better.

Cushing may be playing better right now (really hard to compare) - but he didn`t change the defense (perhaps the mentality a bit)... so my vote is going to JoJo

In positional value, draft-value, free-agency value the ILBs are subordinate to OLBs. Anybody who doesn't know that is uninformed about the 3-4, because the 3-4 defense (or any defense for that matter) is diddly without competant pass-rushers.
As it applies to the Texans, with our Dline the ILB shuts down the running lanes . Regardless of the "name" OLB, all a Qb would have to do is dump ball to a RB. WIthout all our D we would have a poor team.

A Lewis/Cushing comparison ? Man, you've gone all-in on that Cush-Koolaid, you must be consuming that stuff by the cases over at your place these days ? Hey, I'm a Cushing fan, but I'm not even going to say he's as good as that ILB I saw playing this last Monday night for the Chiefs much less drop his name in the same sentence with Ray-Ray.
And Lewis "was" that good, but in recent years he's been gliding on the coattails of Ngata & Cody (the one from 'Bama) and Suggs. Besides the Lewis resume is as much about a classic 4-3 MLB as a 3-4 ILB, which is our conversation here.
