The player that injured him needs to be suspended for as many games as Cushing is out.


Check out the comments from Payne and Matthews from this link

We all know injuries are a part of the season but this was intentional and I am hoping the league steps in on this.

This was not intentional. It sucks being a Texans/Cushing fan, but this was not intentional. You've got a player who was beat, out-matched trying to block a superior athlete.

I agree with Matthews, they need to protect players on both sides of the ball.

Agreed, this is the nature of the game. It happens, Cushing knows that.

I do think that anything at the knees like that needs to be looked at, but it's just too hard to officiate. That happened in the middle of a pack. Yes the TV cameras saw it but you can't expect officials to have to look for that also.

It's a violent sport. These things happen.

Dirty play. End of story. I'm so pissed. I just wish someone had gone after his Slauson. Son of a ***** doesn't deserve to have his Slauson after that cheap shot. Where's Lorena Bobbitt when you need her.

Two things:

1. It was classic Brian Cushing for the guy to walk off the field unassisted. The image of him riding a cart was spared, which I think helped the morale of our team at a time when the game's momentum was still up for grabs.

2. Listing him, initially, as "questionable return" also helped the morale of our team. None of those guys need to hear, during the game, that Cushing is out for season with torn ACL.

A lot of sports is played "between the ears," and Brian Cushing was not going to be helped off the field nor to the locker room. That's leadership.

"I wouldn't want to lose him. I wouldn't want to lose him at all for any reason," Texans S Danieal Manning said after the contest, per ESPN AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky. "He's so valuable to this team in so many ways. Just his presence alone. Opposing teams won't, and don't, do certain plays. And we do a lot of plays formulated around Cush. It's a whole team, but you can tell, so many things that we do are to let our beast play."
Oh jeez...I knew he was important but this could be worse than I thought

No one covers the field laterally better than Cushing. Be prepared for more runs that gauge us on the outside. Dobbins can hold his own on the inside I believe, but that's gonna be the difference maker.

It was not dirty. It should have been flagged for a clip, but there wasn't a dirty intent. The guy missed his block, got up and tried to make another one, and committed a penalty (although not called).

Just because it was a clip doesn't mean it was dirty. When Antonio got mugged and held by 2 different OL it wasn't dirty. It was a penalty (although not called) but not dirty.

We'll just agree to disagree. Dirty play, and he knew exactly what he was doing. Don't give me that crap.

Look at the bright side. Nothing better to test our new Cushless defense than a desperate Packers team coming off of an humiliating loss led at QB by last year's MVP. It should make for a good test.

It is interesting to hear on Mike&Mike this morning that Reggie Bush's recent injury may have been the result of him being targeted by the Jets.
