Default Re: Brian Cushing torn ACL .. out for season

this has greatly reduced the enjoyment of this season for me. Cushing was a great player on a historically crap defense and didn't point fingers at coaches or db's. He took crap that entire year, people saying his rookie season was all drugs and he was a bust. He is a prototypical football player in every way, more than anyone else on the Texans. Effort, attitude, physicality, mentality.

still happy we are 5-0 but the shine is of the season now.

It is what it is. I am officially over the Cushing injury. I now look at it this way, Cushing is going to be one heck of a free agent pick up this offseason and will make us even better next year! Its a done deal!

For now, we are what we are and we have who we have.... we are 5-0 and if anything the season just got more exciting. Heck, we have been spotted 5 games to start the season! The NFL is a long greuling up and down season, for EVERYBODY. Its time to buckle up for a heck of a ride and Time to MOVE ON.

I think some of you saying it wasn't intentional are off your rocker. Or maybe you're confusing premeditation with intention.

If a defensive player hits an offensive player in the head, no matter what the circumstance, he's fined. He can be actively trying to avoid hitting a player in the head, but if the offensive guy ducks into it, the defenseman is fined. Here we have a guy that clearly went after Cushing, should have been flagged, and probably isn't going to be fined. It's a BS double standard. Going after a man's knee is every bit as debilitating as headhunting, perhaps even moreso.


I havent seen any talking heads or anyone from the league say it was an illegal block, in fact the heads that I saw said it was legal. Should it be against the rules? I think so and I think Clay Matthews has a great point about protecting player safety on both sides of the ball

It will be fascinating to see how the NFL handles this one. There is a very strong case to be made Slauson's hit qualifies as illegal as clipping because of where it took place on the field, not because of Slauson's technique.


Thats the only thing i have heard about it being a illegal ht...

Doc, is this the same knee he had the patella (sp?) surgery on? If so how does that affect the results you posted above? (that I snipped)

Inquiring minds and the such.

HITTING PASSERíS KNEE
(5) A rushing defender is prohibited from forcibly hitting in the knee area or below a passer who has one
or both feet on the ground, even if the initial contact is above the knee. It is not a foul if the defender is
blocked (or fouled) into the passer and has no opportunity to avoid him;
Note 1: A defender cannot initiate a roll or lunge and forcibly hit the passer in the knee area or below, even if he
is being contacted by another player.
Note 2: It is not a foul if the defender swipes, wraps, or grabs a passer in the knee area or below in an attempt to tackle him.
SO JJ should not have been flagged in the game in Indy last year where the f'kn refs silver plattered them the game?

It will prolly happen in the next couple of days or even next week.

If he's not fined I'll personally punch Roger "inconsitent" GODdell in the face!! (If I could).

His patella tendon surgery was on the right knee. His present ACL surgery will be on his left knee. The right knee has by all rights healed without incident. One should not directly impact the other at this point.

Have no fear people, the thuggish Jets player who blatantly went after Brian Cushing's knee was fined $10,000 and everything's fine now and Brian Cushing is most definitely not out for the year anymore.
