Default How about Cushing?

Just want to see you guys' thoughts on his play thus far. I think he's looked damn good in this new scheme & it bodes well that wade has chosen him as the designated MLB to stay on the field in passing situations. The dude is making plays even though some will say he hasn't b/c its not reflective in his stat line.

I'm also a bit relieved that he seems to have bounced back from the steriod crap from last year.

He's like most of them. Fitting into his new role well and getting better weekly. There are going to be setbacks and there are going to be mistakes but we're watching an improving defense. The best play out of this unit is yet to come (still). Cushing is looking as good as anyone else out there right now except for maybe Mario & ANTONIO (my bad, early not enough coffee yet) Smith, those two are tearing it up.

I'm gonna say by the end of the year Cushing is going to be right there with them.

And look for big things from Daniel Owen too!

Is he related to Daniel Owen?

I like Cushing's attitude. Hit hits a guy and wraps him up like a mad dog. We need that kind of fire from our LBs. He's got a chip on his shoulder from last year and all the grief his defense got in the off-season. That kind of 'prove it' attitude can really light a fire in a defense.

I agree completley. One of the things I've noticed from Cushing is that when he wraps a guy up, he pulls him backwards towards the LOS. A lot of guys just go for the big hit. Cushing fights for every single yard

Maybe we should inform him of a player on every team we play this year said he was "juiced out of his mind"?

I said it in another thread, but I thought Cushing had a great game. Dude was everywhere.

Needs time. He's recovering from an injury and taking on a new role. He's active and getting better every week.

Default Re: How about Cushing?

The stats do not have ANY indication of how awesome he is playing.
The stats say he only has six tackles, but i thought he was in on like 12 or 13...
I dont really like the whole "tackles" stat because it's so up to whoever is counting it to count it as a tackle or a tackle assist or whatever.
Plus, if the player is very good, teams wont even run towards him or run the ball, so he technically wont get as many tackles. Its a nearly meaningless stat if you ask me. But anyways, to get back on topic... yeah, he was an animal out there today.

cushing has been simply amazing most of the season and appears to be getting better in every aspect of his game each week. obviously a little biased, but he's easily one of the most complete linebackers in the NFL in my opinion.

BEAST!!! Makes you think that his lack of productivity last year wasn't the idea that he was off the 'roids, but rather there was some truth to the fact that he missed 4 games AND got moved to a position which didn't suit him after Demeco's loss...
