He's calling the plays. He's entrenched as the defacto captain. DeMeco has been a great bridge player in Texans history. Unfortunately, his end as starter is nigh.

not enough pretty stats, but i'd give it to him. the anchor of the most improved defense in the NFL and arguably the most dominant defender not on the ravens this season.

I think Cushing has adjusted to a lot and is now where he needs to be.

Cush is killing it this year... I agree with the descriptions of "beastly", and that he's "an animal" etc... I just think the fella's dialed in...

Honestly I thought moving Cushing to MLB in the 3-4 was going to limit his playmaking ability but I couldn't have been more wrong. He's all over the place, and they're finding ways to make him an effective pass rusher. Not to mention he seems like a team leader. Great player.

One thing that really worries me about Cushing is how he was flirting with Arian on the sideline... anyone see this? Looked like he was blowing on his neck and whispering sweet nothings to him and stuff... really disturbing to me... don't mix business with pleasure, man...

I see he was listed as questionable for the game with elbow/hamstring issue but no mention of it is surprising.

He's still a starter though. I really don't see anyone challenging DeMeco for his spot and he has had his moments this year but far too few. Perhaps he's just a much better 4-3 MLB though or perhaps that elbow has made him less aggressive.

demeco's a great MLB. he's very cerebral and is a king of both gap control and lateral containment. his skillset however (especially with the injuries), doesnt fit wade's defense as far as i can tell. he cant cover zone or man or backfield, he cant consistently beat individual blocks, and has been relegated to an insanely expensive jay foreman - playing behind the studs or caught in the wash up front. demeco is very talented and will be much better once he's 100%, but IMO we've moved on.

cushing is our defensive captain at ILB and if not for a monster contract, we'd be better off finding a ryans' replacement in the draft. i am worried that we're giving major money to a player that is probably replaceable. like i said last week, demeco will probably be on the block before long.

cushing had knee surgery in january to repair something that's been bothering him since college iirc; also i'm pretty sure he said he's finally fully healthy for the first time in years earlier this season too.

either way, he's been a stud this season and i hope he keeps it up

He played. I saw him coming up in gang tackling situations. But he didn't ring up any stats though. Also, Sharpton was in for a few plays.

But then, the Tacks went 3 & out so many times our leading tackler was Cushing with 6 and Reed with 4. A bunch of guys had 3. On the other side, the Tacks leading tacklers had 12, 11, and 10 tackles. We kept them on the field quite a bit.

I agree that Meco looks very tradeable this season. The only reason I wouldn't though is because I'd rather the team hang onto him until they have a guy ready to step into that spot. Not do the whole Dunta thing again (although Dunta forced himself out) and get rid of a guy and hope to find his replacement quickly. I wouldn't be against drafting a ILB in the 2nd or 3rd round if the guy is a stud.

Yeah. Someone should make a quality tackle stat. Tackles after so many yards are useless...Also the Texans were on the field more offensively while our defense seemingly forced the Titans to punt after 3-5 plays every drive. So not many tackling opportunities.

But just watching Cushing you can tell the difference in just how he walks like he's the alpha dog out there.
