So I don't have much to write but just want to ask a question. What do you think is the reason why Leslie and Williams haven't elevated Mauti to starting middle linebacker. I can kind of understand why Hodges isn't playing yet, he seemed a little rough. But if Mauti hadn't been hurt people were saying third round. So, assuming he is healthy (which I know is a big assumption) why would a "third round draft pick" still be riding the bench.
Wouldn't it make sense to try to move Henderson back over and insert Mauti? Let Henderson keep making the calls while he is in there. I have to believe that in nickel defense Mauti's instincts in pass defense would make some difference. Please write tons of feedback so I can understand this frustration I see every week.
