    I like that. I think that's a good choice. Cush is the LB that's best in coverage and going to be on the field for every down. He'll be the best one of our guys for chasing down plays sideline to sideline.

    We can mix and match the guys around him based on situations.

    Risky.

    Now we've lost Ryans at MLB AND Cushing at OLB. Both were probowlers at those spots.

    Cush is so good he can play 2 positions at once.

    Just got the SR610 text...

    We'll see. Any change on D can only be a good thing anyway IMO.

    It keeps us with having some form of depth. Bentley backs up Cushing, Diles stays where he is and is most likely backed up by Sharpton, and Adibi moves over to Cushing's spot.

    How is Adibi when it comes to blitzing?

    Agreed.

    GT, I can see where you're coming from. Maybe put Bentley (who is pretty beefy, IIRC) at the SAM and leave Diles at the WILL?

    That's the only way the Colts could attempt to stop the Cush on MNF

    I thought this was a posibility, especially without them making any major moves at the trading deadline.

    I think it's the only real choice. What you really thought they were going to let Diles assume the position? Getcha popkeeerrrnn ready for next year when Demeco wants his spot back.

    I got kinda a broad NFL question..

    Did the Texans have to release what they were doing? Could they of closed off the media, told the team to be quiet, practice in the dome, and come out with Cush lined up at Mike and the colts having to on-the-spot game plan for it?

    The signing of new player contracts going across the waiver wire desk & team "insiders" from the press like john McClain would've blew the secrecy off any of that after attending a practice.

    I had a feeling they would do this move. It makes sense. Adibi filled in nice while Cush was out so why not let Cush play MLB for the year and let Adibi, Bentley and Diles work out the OLB spots.

    Also this could only be for this game since the Texans will be in Nickle most if not all the time against the Colts. So Diles stays where he is and CUshing moves over to fill in for Meco...

    Cush is a baller and can manage...
