Cushing is up for the Pepsi Rookie of the week, so go vote.
Is it just me, or do all the other rookie descriptions have a lot more detail than Cushings? His 2 FF and INT basically won us the game.
Why don't they mention Cushing's passes defended? I think he had two. They mention another players' passes defended so it's not like it's a stat they don't include.
I think they just added that stat to Matthews so his stats don't look so weak compared to the other Rookies listed.
But that said it should be included in Cushings as well.
sorry brian but i had to vote for the kicker instead
Any serious football fan knows kickers really aren't football players.
Cushing should win, especially since we beat a good opponent. It will be interesting to see if he actually does win however.
Cushing had by FAR the best game of anyone on that list.
He caused 3 turnovers by himself
dont worry i was joking. realistically byrd is his only competition, especially since he picked off golden boy twice...
It's a joke that the kicker was even included. I mean, come on. If you want to give the kicker an award, make it a kickers-only award.
Why? That guy is a rookie nad he accounted for all of their points.
People make short work of a kicker, but a consistent kicker is key to a successful team in the NFL
Oh yeah, no doubt. And I'm always saying that a great punter is a VERY underrated asset.
But... they're kickers, not football players. I mean, if they could at LEAST take care of both kicking responsibilities, I'd respect that.
Cushing deserves to win.
Just voted. 56 TIMES Baby! Will do more later.
I couldn't help but notice how Matthews totals stats are mentioned, including 1 pass deflection, while Cushings 2 pass deflections aren't. Put those in his stat line and it's an easy call who gets the nod easily. Who respects Houston? Only us I guess...
Well crap - guess who is tied for league leader on LB passes defended (also FF by the way)? I expected a run stopper.
FF? I see James Harrison, am I missing something?
Different sources. I looked at nfl.com but now looking at espn I see what you mean. In any event...dude is playing well.
EXACTLY what I said. I had to send an e-mail mentioning the two pass break-ups, like they'd even read it. But I tried.
