Regardless, he still helped change the whole identity of the defense. I found myself enjoying defense more than offense last year. Speedbump to start the season only to be stronger by playoffs.

Jesus H. Pot Smoking Christ, yall are SO over reacting to this.

Teams lose players all the time for various reasons, we lost damn near half our starting O line last year. It happens. That's why you have backups.

Yeah, Cushing will be missed, OD sure as hell was. It's part of the game folks. Besides, where's the lab report? What exactly was he taking? Where's his press conferance for us to hear his side of the story?

Give the guy a break, will ya?

Damnit! We need him to crush those arrogant, holier-than-thou Cowboys in week 3. Hope they can draw up a helluva defensive game plan!
Adibi has shown flashes and Bentley can hold his own, who knows about Sharpton.
Our pass rush and secondary better step up!!

I'm pretty surprised he was dumb enough to get caught though. Tons of players in basically every sport use steroids but most people figure out how to not fail the tests.

Lame.

The issue isn't about morality. It's about protecting the integrity of the game. Of course rape is more despicable. However, it doesn't give Roethlisburger an unfair playing advantage. The NFL doesn't want to turn into pro wrestling or baseball. Integrity of the product is important.

Yeah, a defensive ROY really blew up in their face..

If he doesn't ever play a down of football again, then you can say they blew the pick; but seriously, get out of your ****ing bizzaro world of hating the Texans FO and realize that Cushing is one of the main reasons we didn't end up 4-12 last season.

Good riddance.



As for the actual meaning of the thread; I hope Cush can learn from this experience and grow because of it to become a more complete player and person. I won't ever accuse until the evidence is staring me in the face, but I have a feeling if he truly did get caught, it would be HGH instead of steroids. With all the injuries he played through, wouldn't HGH be a much more viable option with all it's supposed recovery benefits?

I was wondering if I was the only one who noticed that. Now it hasn't been 100% acceptance, some posters have expressed disappointment.

I still want to know which chemical cocktail he was busted for before I come down on one side or the other.

If it was diuretics like the Williams' and those guys from the Saints were busted for, I can sympathize with him. But if it was straight up 'roids, that's not so forgivable.

I was talking to a doctor friend of mine about Cushing last Christmas. He told me everyone knew Cushing was on roids. Anyone with any medical knowledge could tell, it was just a matter of time before he was caught.

He said people dont sustain the injuries that Cushing had without roids being involved.

Guess he was right.

Is anyone else TERRIFIED that he'll end up like Merriman?

Pre bust - 18 sacks

Post bust - benched or cut. He had almost as many sacks in his roid years as he did tackles last year.




We DO NOT know the real Cushing at all. What we know is roided Cushing. The real Cushing could suck.
