Cushing is the lone ILB on obvious passing downs. That's a known fact. He is the one that will be used in coverage. This is exactly the reason why the Texans felt they could not afford Ryans who was being removed on passing downs & thus being primarly a 2 down ILB. Guess who was left on the field in those obvious passing situations....Cushing. This was also the reason some believed there would little to no drop off going from Ryans to James because James would be a 2 down ILB. Once again, leaving Cushing in for passing downs & potentially in coverage.

In the base set, Cushing could get after the QB but it is known that he is the EVERY down ILB & that is because he is capable of & expected to play in coverage.
