True, because Stupar could actually start at any of the LBer positions without any real drop-off...

And Stupar actually made plays; but hopefully Mauti continued his training regimen and is up to the task...

Mauti was, afterall, the special teams captain just two seasons ago...

Another plus with Mauti, he plays all three linebacker spots not to mention he's been in DA's system...

Didn't someone once refer to the original signing of Mauti as "Nepotism"?

"That's before I knew he was any good" BINGO!!

yeah, but Stupar hasn't played anything but ST so far. I expect Mauti to do the same- 1 for 1

I'm calling blocked punt vs GB right now

If Mauti ever starts at LB it will be because of injury and I don't see the defense getting any better if that happens.

Fro the most part, the Saints only play with 2 LB's. Vaccaro plays the role of a LB.

Two years ago he was a Top 15 LBer by rating; he may never be a full-on starter, but he can an invaluable member of a LBer corps...

That is good news if we need him to play anything but special teams.
