“Certain guys can try to replicate it,” Cushing says of his effect on the defense, “but I think it was different without those guys seeing me out there to pump them up every week.”

"Brian Cushing’s back, and he’s going to bring the attitude back," Brooks Reed. #Texans


Brooks Reed talked about JJ Watt taking over Cushing's pregame speech role last year. Thinks Watt practiced speeches in the mirror #Texans
Hmmm.....

Cushing wouldn't be Cushing if he didn't believe he has the best player on the defense.

Speaking of multiple great players...

Right, but that doesn't speak to Reed's comments.

Maybe it's my own inherent bias; I have always found Watt to be slightly... hokey (I know I will get killed for this).

Reed almost seems to confirm that here.

I agree...But I think he has a good amount of hokiness...Enough that it's noticeable at times....But not too much to where it becomes annoying and disingenuous...

I don't know that "hokey" is the right word.

There are all kinds of leaders. There are the guys who work with you, to make you better, so that the team gets better. People respect him, they trust him, they do what he says, because they believe he truly has their best interest at heart.

Cushing on the other hand, he says a couple of words & he's got you wanting to headbutt your grandmother. Somebody's going to get jacked up & you want to be on his side when the melee starts.

I think Watt is more like AJ than Cushing, though not as quiet. It seemed like he tried to take over as the vocal leader when Cushing went down, and I give him credit for that, but Cushing was irreplaceable in that role.

That article got me pumped up and ready to kick ass. Think about being a player on the same team as Cush. Cushing is the emotional leader of this team and he has been my favorite player for a while. Miss him and can't wait for him to wreck shop. Poor guy was having a great season last year.

Anyone else see Gregg Jones put Crick on his butt...HARD. I assume it Jones, but the fullback throws a "chip" block from hell at the DE and puts him down in a hurry lol. Its always nice when you have a guy who makes you say "I'm glad he's on our side".
