Another factor is how well the Raven O-line is playing right now. They are dominating in the playoffs and the Colts, Broncos, and Pats have barely even touched Flacco. Such a huge piece of thier success that should not go unnoticed.
Cushing can help making a semi-stud out of a few guys.
When he came in on a blitz or a zone dog, he can overpower a blocking back or he can be too quick/fast for most linemen.

Even if he doesn't get there, he gives another push up the middle; somebody else like Watt or Smith or Jamison or Mitchell can benefit from it; and our secondary, too.

In the run game, he's the enforcer, it's hard to run at him; you put Watt on the strong side and Cushing on the weakside, you have a pretty stout run D.
And those QBs that try to escape the pocket, they will start to slide a step or two or three earlier. I can't wait to introduce him to Mr. Luck.
