I don't think it's a dirty play, dude just got beat by a better player.
However, the way he roled up on the back of Cushing's leg (knee) is exactly the reason players are not allowed to go for a QB's legs any more. They risk blowing an ACL....
I don't expect any new legislation from this event. Thousands of snaps/man go by without this happening. The fact that it happened now, to one of ours, is unfortunate & that's as far as it really needs to go. Sucks that we're going to lose Cushing for the rest of the year, but this is where Wade makes his money.
A little OT... did anyone complain that Watt wasn't flagged on his Sanchez sack? Totally different, but completely against the rules. Both hands made contact below the knees.
