I honestly think where Cushing is missed most is with the threat that he could blitz in the a gap...
Just like the difference between Watt & Smith. Watt is going to finish. he's going to get the sack or a nasty hit on the QB without picking up a 15 yarder.
We don't have another LB, inside, outside, don't matter, that can finish. Not James, not Dobbins, not Sharpton, not Barwin, not Reed can get to the QB & make him shake in his boots. Cleats.
Cushing is a different story. You see him coming up the middle, you better start thinking fast.
Without Cushing, we've got to send Manning or McCain, someone who can run these athletic mofos down.
