I think I'm liking the fact that Cush is staying with the hawk and not growing out the hair. Maybe we will have a Brian Cushing day and everyone will get free Battle Red fake mohawks.

Looks like it could be a new mohawk. Last years was much narrower, not reaching side to side to the recessions.

Yeah it looks like he just cut it recently. In earlier interviews this month, you could tell he was growing out his hair, but it appears the Cush-Hawk is back!

Also, I think we should start movement to officially give Brian Cushing the the nickname....... "THE CYBORG"

I went through all the coaches and Marc Lubick was the closest comparison. What do y'all think? You have to picture him with a shaved head. Any other possibilities?

Perhaps they're planning on using him as a decoy in the Washington game. Put JDB in a #8 uni, and once Phat Albert destroys his knees and gets ejected for an illegal hit, the real Matt Schaub will enter the game.

Random thoughts from those pics:

Demeco looks freaking huge in pic 1 - has he always been that big out of pads?

Cedric Smith looks like he could strap up and play FB.

Darnell Bing looks like a homeless drifter with that unkempt beard.

Steve Slaton - please stop eating.

Picture 11 - was Connor Barwin that big last year? He also looks thicker.

I actually believe it IS Schaub. His legs look somewhat thin, but look at Cush's thin guns. Lens distortion. Booty has no significant receeding hairline. Schaub's is severe. And, if you use the Cntrl + up on your computer, you will notice a distinct "double chin" a characteristic of Schaub.

Schaub and Booty do look similar but I have no doubt that the Texan in question is Booty for a few reasons. If you look at the picture where Booty and Schaub are both doing warm ups you can see they have the same haircut but Matt's hair is obviously a little bit longer. As well as this if you look closely you can see that his (Matt's) workout gear is faded because he has been here a few years and obviously hasn't hassled the equipment manager for a new outfit. Booty on the other hand was signed this off-season, his gear is brand new in both pictures. Look at the shoes, Schaub's are blue Booty's are black.

Even without those clues I can just tell that is Booty. I can't explain it, I have a way with faces, I see one I can remember it almost every-time. Names OTOH I suck at.

- Matt Schaub (international man of mystery)
- Xavier Adibi (long sleeve gray shirt)
- Duane Brown (right most ear)
- James Casey (his nose is just to the left of Schaub's head)
