Cushing just needs to get back to work and deal with the rigors of the NFL.
I think they're turning Cushing's words into something it's not, or Cushing is extrapolating from his experience & coming to a poor conclusion.
I'm not saying this, because the Texans teach cut-blocking as part of their system. I just don't know of many people who get hurt this way. The horse collar.... seemed like they made a pretty good case for it, rolling onto the back of the QB's legs.... I got it. But I'm just not seeing players getting hurt by legal blocks.
Of course, if the Texans didn't teach it I wouldn't be concerned, but my opinion would be the same.
