Default MMQB: Brian Cushing Wants To Hit Something

Really good piece on Cush at the new MMQB site...


MMQB: Brian Cushing Wants To Hit Something

Quote:
But mostly he wants to bring a Super Bowl title to Houston—this season. “That’s my biggest goal, something I don’t really ever see myself being OK with not having,” Cushing says. “This is our time. There’s no looking in the future or in the past for this team. We have to win right now.”
Quote:
At DeFranco’s, a warehouse-style gym in Bergen County that doesn’t have air conditioning, Cushing followed the same summer workout regimen he’s done since turning pro.

The gym’s owner, Joe DeFranco, crafts nontraditional exercises that simulate what the body experiences on the football field. Cushing bench-pressed a 275-pound bar draped with about 90 pounds of chains, sharpening the acceleration needed to push off a block. (The weight increases and becomes more unwieldy as you lift, because the chains are no longer touching the floor.) After each round, Cushing leaped up energetically from the bench.

Later, Cushing completed a set of “chaos shrugs,” a lift in which he raises a bar with a pair of kettlebell weights tied on with resistance bands. His surgically repaired leg stood strong, bearing the 200 pounds of swaying without a flinch. He paused between exercises, mimicking a slugger taking a swing in the batter’s box. By the end of his workout, Cushing’s army-green dri-fit shirt was soaked completely through with sweat.

DeFranco likened Cushing to a “caged animal” and offered evidence: In recent weeks Cushing set a lifetime best with a 52-inch seated box jump, and he dragged a 750-pound sled for 30 yards (part of that weight came from onetime Texans teammate Connor Barwin). “He’s dangerous when you give him something else to prove,” DeFranco said.
Quote:
Cushing told Shannon that before he left Houston at the end of the team’s offseason program, the training staff put him through a battery of tests, such as one-legged broad jumps and jumps over cones, to check his strength and balance. Cushing’s surgically repaired left leg out-performed the right one each time, he said.
Quote:
Some of Cushing’s favorite NFL moments occur before games, when he sees opponents looking at him during warmups. He loves sensing their intimidation. And he’s ready to feel that again, for himself and for the Texans.

“Week 1, they’ll be looking at me, just knowing,” Cushing says of the Chargers, who host the Monday night opener.

He does pull off this opposite of AJ spectrum well. He comes across as intense but not a dick to other players. AJ just has this amble onto the field f@#k it, stop me attitude - talk slow, walk slow, let the play show (well unless Innegan is involved).

His only option was to satisfy that appetite through rehab. Andrews repaired Cushing’s ACL 10 days after his wife, Megan, gave birth to Cayden. (Cushing’s father, Frank, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and one of the team doctors watched the knee procedure in the operating room.) Cushing says he began rehab about a week after surgery; was squatting within four months; and though he sat out the Texans’ minicamp in June, was doing change-of-direction drills in which he cut and ran toward flashing lights—as close to simulating football as you can get without hitting somebody.

To tell you the truth, I'm scared. I'm scared he started pushing it way too soon & he's not healed "properly"

He gets paid to push things. These guys will see more high dollar medical care than you can ever even imagine. Between the therapy, nutrition, supplements they are getting it absolutely ridiculous how fast athletes can recover.

If your sole focus in life is to train then you will improve much faster than your normal 9 to 5er.

“I almost feel bad for the first couple of dozen guys you hit,” Brian Shannon, Cushing’s long-time chiropractor, told him in June.

Cushing didn’t laugh. It wasn’t a joke.

I love this.

Hopefully teams will remember how much Wade likes to send him after the QB. With Watt & Antonio doing what they do maybe it will make it easier for our edge rushers to cause havoc.
