Future uncertain for Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga has endured a tumultuous experience in the Queen City. Once a fan favorite, Maualuga is now left wondering if the Bengals even want him any more.

I really don't know if they want me back," Maualuga told Cincinnati.com. "It's something I guess my agent will work out with them, and I'm just going to go through the process like everybody else does and see how it goes, as far as visiting teams and talking to other coaches. I've never been through this process.

He blows in coverage and misses more tackles than any other MLB in the NFL.

No thanks.

35 MLBs played at least 50% of the teams snaps and Rey Rey ranked 35th.

I the 43. I think he would do better in the 34. Kinda like Chris Gocongs best statistical years were in the 34 for example.

The guy plays out of control and, as Kam noted, misses coverages and tackles, mostly due to trying to knock everyone out all the time vs simply getting the ball carrier to the ground.

Scheme has nothing to do with a complete lack of discipline.

His problems missing tackles and getting off blocks would only be amplified in the 34.

in a 2 gap yes in a 1 gap I think the reduced area of responsibility and the 1 gap responsibility of said D would play to his strengths.

You have to play within the scheme in a 34. It is far more important to do your job in a 34 than a 43. He is a free lancer who doesn't play well within a scheme.

No thanks.

Can you explain how the gap responsibly of the 3 DL in a 34 can "play to a strength" of a LB?

Sorry but I've really had it with this "one gap 3-4" talk. The gap responsibility should play to the strengths of the 3 defensive linemen in order to control the four gaps between the tackles. If the gaps are maintained by the linemen, the LBs jobs come down to their own ability to contain, cover, and tackle.

Lol. Your defending his missd tackles based on scheme and terrible logic. I question your football knowledge with comments like this.

I fully agree with Kam. In a 34, it would only exploit those faults more. In either 34 scheme, he needs to be more responsible, and that he is not.

I didn't defend anything. I said IMO the 1 gap 34 would play to his strengths. How does he need to be more responsible? As an ILB in base set he will be sandwiched between 2 other linebackers responsibilities and not have out side contain. He would have less area to cover and 1 gap of responsibility.

1 gap 34


2 gap 34

Aaaannndddd......

Out of the 112 ILB that took any snaps in the league, he ranked 112th.

Ranks 43rd out of 50 in run stop% (he must be a real thumper, huh?) - 25% + playing time.

Ranks 48th out of 53 in tackling effiency.

Ranks 44th out of 48 in coverage. Allowing one rec every 8.7 snaps.

And he ranks 24th out of 45 in pass rush productivity.

What does scheme have to do with tackling?

What does scheme have to do with coverage ability?

How is playing in either 34 going to improve his run stop %, when in the 43, he had more bodies in front of him take on blockers. Freeing him up for a tackle. Opposed to a 3 man front, where he will have to take on blockers more (regardless of gap scheme)

He is garbage. I proved it. Changing schemes will not fix that amount of suck.

It ain't even worth it bulldog.

Save yourself the time and just walk away.

I haven't tried to talk with him in a good while. I made a big mistake even posting in this tread.
