Oh I dunno, how 'bout something along these lines: "JJ is already one of the best defensive players in the NFL after only 2 seasons, and he's totally invaluable to our defense, really to the whole team". Isn't that pretty solid praise, but instead Cushing goes on to say we might be looking at a guy who will become the best ever to play defense. Talk about bulletin board material a team can put up for all of its guards and centers to read and get fired up about when they go up against JJ. He's already on everybodys radar for 2013, why give the opposing offensive linemen even more incentive to take him out of the game or atleast minimize his production.
