Umm, does anyone find it ironic we're bitching about this block when players have been bitching about our style of play in the zbs for awhile now?
Agreed. When it is our O-Line doing it, I don't care as much obviously. But it is ridiculous cheap shots like this don't get penalized more. Cut blocking a guy from behind like was done to Cushing should be completely illegal, should involve a major penalty, plus a sizable fine.
Clay Matthews is the guy in this article....with the Packers. Also, this block was done out side of the "legal" cut block area....and it was not defensible since it Cushing had no protection at that angle...ie illegal hit.
I actually find it ridiculous that people can't see the night and day difference between the two plays.
Exactly. Someone needs to post that GIF in here from the other Cushing thread. It was clearly a dirty play. Cushing wasn't even that close to the play, but the piece of **** just decides to unload on Cushing's knee.
I hope the mother ****er gets rectal cancer.
That's a bit much, no?

How many opponents of the Texans have had their knee blown out and were lost for the season after a cut block by the o-line? The cut block is as old as the game itself. The clip is just as old, and has always been a dirty play.
That's disgusting. He should be suspended!
He better hope someone doesn't do it him at some point.
No. He's going light on him. Actually I hope he gets rectal cancer but in the back of his throat...
.. and then they find out it's somebody else's rectal cancer!
Damnit!! I've said it in other threads, it was a dirty play, BUT I don't think it was played with malice!! Anyone that has played has done things where they know what they did was unethical.. In other words, I dont have hate......... well much hate for this sumbitch!!!
Fair enough, friend. Myself and others just see it differently. From every angle I have seen, it sure looks a hell of a lot like he could have easily gone up high on Cush and laid him out that way. He had at least 50 lbs on him but instead, he went for the one area he could seriously hurt Cush: his legs.
You won't convince me there was no malicious intent. I believe he was pissed off at how they were getting dominated by our D and he saw an opportunity to hurt one of our best players. I don't think he necessarily wanted to hurt Cush for the season, but I most certainly believe he wanted to hurt him.
I hope he gets testicular cancer...on his chin. Sorry sob.
It was a dirty hit, but I will bet anything there are at least 3 of these hits per game in every game. It's a violent game with a lot of malice on that field.
Guy was malicious and hit to injure. I would not be suprised he wasnt coached to do this, someone needs to watch his bank and his habbits for a while, i see a boat or snow mobile or new car in his future and it probably wont even get looked at. It was a tripping hit which last i saw was an illegal hit, guy should be suspended till cush gets back on the feild
the effort that it took for slausen to go that low tells me it was an intent to harm. that's not a block, it's a take out. he could've blocked high to remove cushing from the play. he could've blocked at the hips to get cushing to the ground. he could've launched himself in any number of ways to make the play. to get your helmet at your own knees before submarining into the block takes more effort than required to make the play.
Just imagine what happens if a defensive player had done that to Tim Tebow, who you can clearly notice on the play. He'd be kicked out of the game, fined and likely suspended. I agree with Clay Matthews, double standard.
Exactly. How anyone can defend the guy is beyond me. There are a number of ways he could have taken Cushing out of the play. Instead, he chose to take the route that could hurt Cushing.
As I said before, I won't claim that he was trying to seriously injure Cushing, but there is no doubt in my mind he wanted to hurt Cush.
