Vontaze Burfict?


Recommended Posts

Huh? He's still the starting WLB technically, and Rey plays 3 downs too. Yes it seems he is making the calls (natural for him, talks after every play).

This year Rey was not a 3 down LB, that why Lamur was so important to the defense. I don't know now if Rey will play the Nickle again or not, I'm really hoping he dosnt. My other guess is they are trying to make things very simple for Rey, so he dosnt have to think as much.

I guess this explains it. From Hobson:

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said the other day that Maualuga is having the best preseason of his five NFL seasons. Maualuga says some of the pressure has been taken off him because since Burfict never comes off the field, he's the guy now wearing the radio helmet. And while Burfuct sets the huddle and calls the signals, Maualuga sets the front.

"Now I can just go play," Maualuga said.
