And Steve Slaton.

To be fair to Cushing he was moved around and was gone for four games. He never really had a chance to get settled in.

Well, with that being said, Cushings was a function of the defense being so awful.

That's not a fair grade. He missed games, got moved around, and was part of a defense that failed to create big-play opportunity. Despite that, he still had some big games.

I dont buy that at all. There is always bright spots in crappy defenses. Every time Pollard was asked to cover as opposed to the limited blitzes that we sent him on, he was continually getting burned or blowing coverage.

Also, he missed numerous tackles that didnt seem as apparent last season. Maybe I didnt notice last season, but Ive been glued this year.

Am I the only seeing this???

All Cushing's stats changed drastically for the worst when he went from pregnant last year to just plain feminine this year.

Default Re: Grade Cushing's Season ( I give him an D)

Yeah, if the guy was out four games due to injury I would be more lenient in grading him; however, any missed time was solely brought about by his own actions so a C- seems appropriate.

2009:

Interceptions: 4
Forced Fumbles: 2

Passes deflected: 10


2010:

Games: 11
Tackles: 71
Yards for loss: 12
Interceptions: 0
Forced Fumbles: 1
Sacks: 2
Passes deflected: 4

That's after missing four games, playing MLB at least two games, and with the worst secondary in the NFL giving him no support.

Comparing Cushing's 2010 stats to those of the other OLB, Zach Diles:

Games: 14
Tackles: 79
Yards for loss: 0
Interceptions: 0
Forced Fumbles: 0
Sacks: 0
Passes deflected: 0

Stick to the Dragonball forums if you're not going to support your arguments.

'A' on the illustration of stats. The inside out, pathetic defense, and missed games helped to contribute to his less than stellar year. The Texans have bigger problems.

Default Re: Grade Cushing's Season ( I give him an D)

In overall terms: B-

However if you compare it to last years game and add that level of expectation C-.

He missed 4 games, was moved around, lost a Pro-Bowler beside him and played next to several different guys. Its easy to overlook knowing what the guy beside you is gonna do.

I was dissappointed in some plays I keyed in to Cushing on this year, last year he would have blown the other guy up, this year he got burned a couple of times.
