I also have to wonder if the number of carries has caught up with him.
Cushing was surprising to me, but he was out for a lot of the year. I wonder if that had any effect on the numbers.
As far as Jonathan Joseph and Daniel Manner are concerned, we did get beat a lot deep. I think a true free safety would cure this problem.
It's one things to lower your head and run through the hole vs a LB and a completely different thing to do the same thing against a 300 lb DLineman. The line play this year fell off quite a bit from 11.
