are a shell of their former selves. Their play yesterday was pathetic. I've never seen someone as talented as Mario is that just quits on plays. Multiple times yesterday I saw him getting stood up by a TE or running back, make no effort, and watch the ball carrier go right by him.

Brian Cushing isn't the beast we thought he was. He doesn't attack anymore. He can't cover anyone. He doesn't seem to understand zone coverage at all. He got punked in the open field... again. He just STOOD STILL and watched that Jag run right by him. He should of never stopped over training.

Posting this crap in the other thread wasnt enough ? It deserves its own thread ?


I wonder if we were watching the same game ..... Maybe you were watching the Rams and 49ers .... :wadepalm:

I just think that the "stars" of our team deserved to be called out when they play as bad as they did yesterday. There's plenty of blame to go around but the lack of leadership on this team is incredibly disappointing. Mario quits on plays and something is very wrong with Cushing. These are our defensive stars, the people that our younger players should look to as examples of how to be a Texan. They are failing.

And as both of these guys are avid readers of this forum, I'm glad you just gave them what for... I'm betting we see an improvement next week :) :kitten:

And you sir are entitled to do so... just making light of it, as that is my way of dealing with frustration... just laugh about it :)

I don't have a DVR so can't point to the minutes on the clock, but I saw that play and my jaw dropped. The old Cush would have stormed him and flattened him. Instead, he just froze in place while the guy ran around him. I saw Mario giving up on many plays. Yes, he had some good plays but not enough to make up for his laize-faire ones.

Not crap, its the truth.

Think about it, you don't get to be this bad because of poor coaching. This defense is going to require a complete overhall.

Drew is Much faster/quicker than Cushing, dude ran a 4.3 40 at the combine. It would have been embarrassing for him if Cush got him in the open field. You're not giving Jones-Drew enough credit

And who would blame the players for giving up on Kubiak/Bush? Because it certainly doesn't seem out of the question at this point that the team, especially the defense, has had enough of their coaching.

Yeah , same coaches that had them kicking ass and taking names from week three on last season .....


The main problem with this defense is a lack of push by the DT's , part of that is scheme but in the end it is up to the players to get it done.

I would blame them if they quit ...

Mario i get if some on was dumb enough to offer us a 1st round pick for him ill trade him in a heartbeat

This is insane. Do you think it's a walk in the park getting a premier pass rushing DE? Not to mention one that is great against the run?
