It's no secret that we ran out of gas & lacked focus in some of the games down the stretch. Part of the reason may have been "knowing" that we've clenched a play-off spot & being realistic about injuries. Not just the Cushing injuries, but injuries to guys who were "playing through it" like Cody, like Jjo, like Brooks, like Dobbins & Sharpton, Newton, Wade Smith & maybe even Matt Schaub.
Not that it makes their performance excusable, just being realistic, it happens.
