It is interesting how much slack certain players get. Newton plays injured and is dissed. Duane Brown cannot get on field and no comments. Cushing injured 2 seasons in a row and he is a hero. I love the guy but at what point do people begin asking why he cannot get on field. Is it due to severity of injury?

Probably has to do with the fact that Cushing and Brown were Pro-Bowl caliber players before injuries and Newton has always sucked. Cushing was fantastic earlier in the year coming back from ACL injury but got hurt again.

I think we all expect Cushing and Brown to play well next year. Just like we all expect Newton to keep on sucking. Good players get slack, bad players don't.

Poor comparison, imo. DB and Cush have proven they can, and have, been tops in the league. Newton has proven he can be one of the worst in the league. Newton seems like a great guy, but it's all about what's on film....and his film is not good

I have posted comparisons (stats) between Brown & Newton based on year to year and Newton was very close.

Default Re: Brian Cushing comeback

Duane Brown hasn't missed much time at all and has played through injury. I don't think anyone is giving Cushing slack and I definitely think if he doesn't play almost a whole season this year that he should be cut after the season. But the options given in the poll are pretty silly since it's obvious he's going to be on the team for this season. Maybe a better poll would have been how many games he'd play (like kiwi said) or how effective he'll be this year. But it's basically like starting a poll asking if Arian Foster will be on the roster this year, will be cut, will be traded, or will retire. Stupid poll options.

I'd love to see those stats if you still have them because I don't believe that. Brown has consistently graded out high on PFF the last few years and Newton has consistently graded out pretty low. Hell, Brown was named All-Pro by the AP and by PFF in 2011 and 2012.

So he is injury prone because J Charles destroyed his leg with a low block?

C'mon man ...

WTF? Brown missed 2 games last season. When did that become "cannot get on field?" Playing knicked up Brown was still good. Newton playing injured sucked even more.

Nothing is asked about why Cushing isn't out there because a blind one-armed aardvark with a Braille TV could see why he wasn't.

None of the above.
As is normal once we get past March, Houston temps will rise to 90 and above and once again water will return to it's more natural Texas form... humidity.

I'm already wondering what injury is going to take Cushing out, and during what game. We all know it's coming.

Why don't you post a poll on that? Is it because you think it would cause some to imply that you have a personal vendetta against Cush?

Easy.

You are suggesting that someone use correct grammar, and possibly even think before they post.

I believe that in the past, that has caused season ending message board injuries ...

Infer would also be correct, meaning to conclude.
But imply is the word I wanted, meaning to suggest.
Some people might look up the words before they post.
