This is just another scam by the NFL and the rest of the league to undermine the poweres of the Texans, they know we're good so there taking our best player away on defense.

If he didn't think he needed them why would he take them?

I think that it may affect him mentally more than anything. Initially when Cush gets back I don't expect him to be the same player he was for the better part of last season...But I don't expect him to all of a sudden become a mediocre player

I think 'we' as a society just don't care anymore if people do drugs. I'm not saying that is good or bad - it just is.

I also don't think fans even consider records from the past being broken by someone on steroids. They just want to win today.

When it comes to the Texans, I can almost understand that sentiment.

No, it's his heart and his work ethic that makes him a beast. Hundreds of thousands, probably millions of people worldwide use steroids, but steroids are nothing without the kind of dedication Cushing puts into his game.

Steroids are nothing more than a tool, just like weight benches and blocking dummies.

Did Shawne Merriman get the same punishment? It must be something about the number 56.

I feel like I just watched the Rosencopter game, a marathon of all colts games back to back, a entire game of the Jenkins>Myers play over and over, Jared Allens cheapie to Matt, and Kris Browns awful fieldgoals back to back to back in a constant loop.

Default Re: Cushing suspended 4 games for steroids

Personally I hope he goes right back to using them but doing it in a safer manner so he doesn't get caught.

I can absolutely guarantee you that a significant percentage of players at positions that require you to maintain a lot of muscle while staying pretty lean use steroids at least periodically throughout their career. LBs, DEs, and RBs are the positions that need it the most, and likely a lot of OL and DL use to maintain their huge muscle mass.

So Cushing, who was selected to the Pro Bowl after 2009, won't be a Pro Bowler next season.

Hmm ..No other details about this? Why was he allowed to play last year if he violated the NFL policy?

I want to hear Cushing's explanation first

And why is there such vicious hate for the guy all the sudden? It was probably one of many legal supplements he takes and he assumed it would pass the test just like all his other supplements. If you yourself or know any people who train hard, they take many supplements. Its Cushing's fault for not asking the trainer to check on whatever he was taking, but I don't think the guy was shooting up in an alley behind Reliant stadium in a dark alley. Its more innocent and doesn't deserve the overreaction its getting.

By the way whose upset with the Darryl Sharpton pick now? Meet your opening day starting WILL.
And if we're 0-4 because our run defense stinks? What will you think then?

We're cold starters. We don't know how to start with a bang. I fully expected us to start 0-4 anyway. Losing Cushing makes no difference there.

Honestly except for the INT Cushing played his worst games against the Colts. He just has to cover Clark all day and that doesn't turn out very well.
