Default Re: How about Cushing?

it's hard to suggest putting demeco on the block regardless of who will or might replace him, because he is very talented. however i think we have a competant player already in sharpton and backup ILB's are one of the more ample veteran free agent positions.

more than anything, my position is based on salary. if we can free up money through trade, we can find a similar player for a fraction of the cost. if it'll cost us, there's nothing wrong with paying a good player for doing his job.

I'd like to see someone show a glimpse that they need to stay on the field when we go into our nickel package. Right now, I'm not seeing that guy.

I think Demeco is still recovering from his ankle & will start earning that money before the season is out.

But 'meco don't look tradeable (to me) until we have someone who can take his place.

Cushing looks like DROY Cushing again. And not at all like last year Cushing. Demeco looks like a guy who is being coached by someone who knows that he's not a coverage LBer. Base packages, run stopping and containing plays. Occassionally gets free up the middle on a blitz. That's Demeco's game now, especially on the recovery road. Gotta say the LBers are impressing me this year.

Cushing has been back in "beast mode" and it's been refreshing. I've thought that maybe he was back on roids, but who knows. Personally, I don't care......just don't get caught! I did see earlier on NBC's Football Night in America, that the NFL will not be testing for HGH without the Union's permission. I've never messed with HGH, so I don't know if it would effect your athletic aggression the same way that anabolics like testosterone would.

Either way, he's playing at a Pro Bowl level IMHO. Hopefully he can keep it up.

that's where demeco is replacable IMO. he's not a 3 down linebacker in our system, an upgrade would be someone who stays on the field in both run and passing situations. demeco is playing behind cushing on rush downs ... not exactly a favorable spot for someone who comes off the field on passing downs while on a 48+ million dollar contract.

as is, we could fill his early down role with more run oriented guys like sharpton or dobbins or a veteran free agent, and draft a more athletic cover linebacker to come in on 3rd downs and passing situations. that would be a much cheaper status quo. an upgrade would be a 2nd or 3rd rounder who is able to play alongside cushing and be a 3 down linebacker.

I love Cushings attitude....he is bringing it......Phillips calls him a "holy terror"....

Mr. Crushing is back and better than ever.......sure have missed him....its a joy watching him play......never get tired of his relentess pursuit on each play.....plays like a man possessed.....

He has picked up this new system and is thriving very well.......
I think he makes the pro bowl for sure......

i'm probably in the minority, but i thought cushing was actually decent last season - all things considered. all-pro he wasnt, and certainly lost at times, but between missing 4 games and then switching positions twice i thought he was no less than solid.

He hasn't been getting the stats because the defense isn't simply on the field that much.

(not directed at the quote) i'm also not crediting his DROY season to "performance enhancers" since he tested positive before signing a contract, and tested clean as a texan. THIS IS brian cushing. if he can stay healthy, i think we have an even more athletic brian urlacher - the complete inside linebacker.

These factors do not get mentioned enough. There had been way too many people talking about his "sophmore slump," because he was off the 'roids.

I'm not going to defend nor commend what I really don't know regarding Cushing and steroids. Though the evidence points to the affirmative, still the time he missed and then getting thrown into a new position was not conducive to proving his detractors wrong.

Maybe in 2011 we're seeing the real Brian Cushing.

The whole style of defense we played in 2010 was not going to make anyone a star. We drafted down hill players & asked them to back up all game long.

Cushing is playing great in Wade's D!

Brian Cushing needs way way way more love.

Heard Lance Z's dad on the radio today, said he talked to the Steeler RB coach and it was made known that Cushing is the toughest LB they have faced this season.

I love Cushing.
