According to Eric Winston on Twitter:

"Samson aka Brian Cushing got a hair cut tonight. I'll try to get a pic tom. We gave him the Matt Schaub fade"

Probably better for him with the heat and living in a red state.

The Matt Schaub peninsula hair cut is way better than the one that Schaub had his first year with tufts of hair blowing in the wind. If it is getting bozo on top, that's when you cut it tight.

Haha I was just going to post this! He was adament about trying to influence other guys on the team to grow their hair out long but rookies don't make those decisions clearly. Just hope this doesn't affect his play, not that there's any logical reason for that haha.

On a mitten note , mistermittens.org had a post from Hulk 75 in Dec 08 . He used his real and said that he was Carr's brother and Carr's lawyers would be contacting the site owner about shutting it down .

I did my research and it's still there . If you look down the left side of the page toward the bottom , you'lll see the post .

I'm pretty sure that Samson's power was in his hair. Hercules was a son of Zeus (I believe) and he just "was" powerful being a demi-god and all.

So technically Mario is like Hercules. Cush is like Samson (or not, hopefully).

His hair wasn't even touching, much less covering his name on the jersey. Dunta is up next, after all he'll finally be able to afford a haircut with that 10 mil. It'll probably take at least 1.5 mil to cut up that much hair.

Well personally, I liked his hair long, and think he's a wuss for being intimidated enough to cut it. Not a big deal, just disappointed he didn't stand up for himself. Thought this dude was arrogant and tough! If he can't say F-off to those who wanted something as simple as getting his hair cut, I wonder what he'll do on the field. I know, apples and oranges!! I'm just saying he should have stood up for himself.

Blast DC all you want guys! You just show your lack of knowledge about the entire "hair" thing. David Carr wanted NO part of that miserable media blunder. Ya wanna blame someone, blame the Texans public relations dept for coming up with such a lame idea.

If he makes a big deal out if it, the vets on the team could get pretty nasty with the hazing. Besides, it's just hair. It grows back for most people.

He could have said F-off BUT... if he had done that, he wouldn't have been part of the team. He'd be just some punk kid who's a jerk and an a-hole who thinks he's better than everyone else. But, since he did this and (apparently) did it with some good grace, he's become a real part of this team. If he, a first round pick, is going to take part in some rookie hazing like this without getting an attitude about it, he just bought himself a lot of credibility with the rest of the guys.

This isn't about being tough or standing up for something, this is about belonging.

And if he HAD said F-off... I think he would have lost the battle. He was getting his hair cut one way or another. Cushing is no longer one of the biggest nor one of the most feared player on his team. He's a puny rook.

My point was, Cushing getting a rookie hazing haircut is kinda a "so what" ain't it? Don't they do something like that to all rooks?

What is this 'winter' you speak of?

Looks great and he was a good sport so thats all good to me, dude just needs to make plays and he is going to get every opportunity to shine on our defense. If he can just make even a few big plays this season, it will be more than we have gotten from SLB in the past. We shall see.

my dad will probably be happy about the haircut, he wasn't a big fan of the haircut on Draft Day and that is putting it mildly. I gotta sit next to the guy so its one less thing for him to complain about. Lord knows I have been hearing about his disdain for Travis Johnson's act since the day he was drafted over Derrick Johnson. Go figure, dad's a Longhorn.

"Winter" is a climatic anomaly characterized by outside temperatures that we normal people (Texans) normally associate with iced tea, properly chilled beer, and frozen margaritas. This phenomena is reported to occur mainly in backward foreign countries such as Colorado, Minnesota, Chicago, and Buffalo during the months of October thru April.

Well, I got a Mohawk. Everyone has asked me if the veterans made me do it. I think it was a little bit of both, a little hazing, but also I figured it was probably a smart deal just to do it and I think a lot of guys were impressed that I cut it. Some of the guys were shocked that I would go that far for the team and I think that took a lot off my back.
Practice is going real well. I missed the first two days, which were no-contact. My first day back we had shoulder pads on so I had to adjust real fast for a 9-on-7 contact drill. Had to snap back into football mode. I knew what to expect, the speed picked up, everyone was trying to prove a point out there. I thought I did well.
I donít mind coming in with all the hype and expectations. Thatís what I want, to step into that role and handle everything thatís expected of me.
Iím staying in a hotel right now, all the rookies have to stay here close to the facility. My roommate is Connor Barwin. We already get along, we have the same lifestyle, we just want to come in and play football so Iím happy about everything.Next Friday we have our first preseason game at Kansas City and Iím excited about that. Iím just looking forward to playing football again.
