Got this from another thread, thought it more appropriate to discuss this position in it's own thread.

Defensive depth chart.
I think Tuggle is solid & should be a decent back-up to Cushing. I hope we won't need him for long, because he won't be able to "replace" Cush.

At the other spot, I like Mohammed, Tarpinian, & Bullough next to Cush. Can't have stars at every position, but we need good solid play & I think these guys are capable of that. Bullough is the most intriguing, he showed some flash the other day in the bottom of the third qtr.

It would be great to see him playing with the first team by the time the season starts, but if he's not ready, he's not ready & hopefully he'll be pushing for a starting spot at the end of the year, or going into next season.

I'm very interested to see how Bullough turns out. I liked his play Sat., also. I still can't believe he went undrafted.

Of all the ILB's, I like Tarpinian the best to line up next to Cush. The guy has shown some good instincts in the run game. Not sold on coverage, though.

That's his strong suite DBAR. No?

If not in a complete rebuilding mode, we are, at least, in a transition mode with a high turnover in player personnel. We had, and we continue to have, a lot of holes to fill with a higher level of talent that fit our new schemes. It was/is flat out impossible for the organization to address all these needs in one off-season.

Within the broader context of the thread Thunderkyss broke this thread from, I had stated my opinion that our starting 22 represented a sufficiently high level of talent that maybe could give us the opportunity to challenge for a wild card slot in the playoffs, provided we stay healthy. I then stated my opinion that our weakness was the quality of our depth, but opined that our depth at ILB was "pretty good".

Within this context, I'm comfortable going into the new season with the ILB's currently on the roster.

From what I recently heard about Cushing, I'm not feeling good about our LB corps as a whole. I think we possibly have some talent inside, but still unknown at this point.

Not that I've seen. Shooting gaps on runs is where I've seen him shine. If he can do both, WTF? The Texans should sign him for 5 years right now,
