I like Dobbins enough to think we can still keep on going. The loss of Cushing will definitely be huge, but every team has to deal with injuries. I just hope our offense will come up with a better showing in the next few weeks so that we don't need the defense to hold the opponents under 20 points every Sunday.

Most all teams are going to go through this. The Giants lost some key players on their road to the Super Bowl last season. Other teams have already lost some key players this season.

Honestly, I am not sweating losing Cush for the season. This team has too much other talent and great defensive coaching to allow Cush's absence to sink them.
Yep this is true. Everyone loses a key player or two.

I do feel like there are players that teams just can't lose. (outside of QB of course)

Ravens lose Ray Rice or Ngata they are no longer contenders.
Packers lose Matthews
9ers losing Willis

I feel like Cushing while a great player...he's not Watt or Foster. I think if we were to lose those guys we'd be done for as far as superbowl contention goes.

It's a terrible occurance for someone who loves the game as much as he does.

We were already thin at that position, and Sharpton is only worth three games before he's injured again. Everyone who wanted to see more of Braman will get to see why we haven't before--He's not ready. It'll probably be a rotation of Dobbins and Alexander and whoever we sign for one year. So be prepared for teams to start running on us a lot.

And seriously, **** the Jets.

If there's anything Dobbins can do, it's stop the run.

Man...

All I have been saying as the Texans have started piling up the wins, was one thing...

Stay healthy. Big loss if true. It just sucks and I feel for you all. Try and be like the Packers two years ago, who took a ton of blows injuries-wise but pulled off a championship. Hopefully you have their depth.

And do you mean to tell me that we still haven't learned not to prejudge players by what they do in their rookie seasons?

You'd think Duane Brown and Kareem Jackson would be pretty good examples, but I guess not.

was no one worried watching this game? did yall not see what i was seeing? our d looked pathetic. they made sanchez look like a decent QB.

playoff caliber qb's will tear the inside of this linebacking core up. james has not been impressive. they need to go outside of the organization. trades? free agents?

While I dont think anyone replaces Cushing in the middle .... Dobbins is a better option than most teams starters IMO. He wont be spectacular but he'll be solid.

Look at the bright side .... Cushing doesnt go into a contract year putting up monster numbers making it easier for the team to retain his services long term.


..... Next man up.

Yeah, i'm more worried about our pass defense at the position. We literally have no LBs who can cover effectively on Nickle and Dime situations now. James is a liability in this area and he's the best we have now. I wouldn't be surprised to see Wade call his old buddy Matt Wilhelm.

I know it's crazy to think of, but with Braman's athleticism I wonder if we may see him transition inside a little more now.

Just feel awful for Cush, I know J Joe, (even with a bad game tonight), Watt, may be more valuable. I just feel like Cush makes everything go. If anyone can come back earlier than expected it's him. Seeing his reaction and what I've read, he's done, but lets hope for the best w/ the MRI tomorrow

Huge loss. Hope he makes a full recovery and I am bummed for him. As for replacements I know Braman is an olb but his size, speed and agility are intriguing if they consider moving him inside. Dobbins has been pretty sharp but does come downhill like cush. Out of the list of available ej Henderson is interesting.
