    Matt should have said no instead of risking injury! Its not like they picked him when they should have.

    Damn. I wanted to see Cushing in the Pro Bowl. I bet if it was still in Hawaii, he would go. Oh well, maybe Vince Young can take his spot.

    Again, this is going to continue to be a problem with having the game earlier than the super bowl. I don't ever watch the pro bowl, but having the biggest stars in the game not playing in it kind of defeats the purpose.

    Damn, oh well, he needs some rest after one hell of a year. Next season is going to be even longer!

    All NFC offensive players breathe a sigh of relief.

    Honestly. I breathe a sigh of relief, too.

    I don't want any of our guys playing in this thing. Sure, it's an honor and everything but I don't want any of our guys risking injury in a meaningless game.

    Which is why this game is a joke..if players have any injury they won't play so you get the 3rd or 4th alternate.

    They should just give them a banquet...present them a plaque and be done with it.

    Wise choice, Cush!

    I'm surprised Mario hasn't bailed due his shoulder injury.

    Wonder if he needs a nurse! I'd donate my time if I thought it would help make him better!:heart:

    2010 will hopefully be the year of the TEXANS, and our boy Cush will be ready to roll!!!

    I'm just waiting for Mario to make the same decision. I'd be surprised if he doesn't. He needs to rest that shoulder!

    QFT!

    We certainly hope so.

    lol Sandy wants to retire as a hospice nurse for her favorite players! (Maybe Cush & Billy Miller can share a house or something?)

    Sad to see he won't be playing alongside Demeco, but good to see he's being smart about things and resting for when things count.
    Would have enjoyed hearing the commentaters gush about his skills when nobody rushes past him.
    Oh well, at least we got 4 others to watch.

    They should play a round of flag football instead, boost the sport and avoid the injuries :)
