I'm burned out on the Kubiak saga. I'm even tired of hearing myself talk about it. Let's talk some football. We can all agree that we have an exciting squad. I was thinking about Cushing. He's an amazing player. I don't want to jinx our boy, but if he plays next year like he did this year, 12 months from now we may have to rip up his contract, start all over, and re-sign him with an extension and a big-ass raise. Also, a buddy of mine was saying that he thinks Cushing is going to be even better after he puts on what he calls "NFL weight." He was saying that linebackers tend to be small when they get into the NFL and that it takes a year for them to put on weight and adust. I've never heard of that theory. My buddy knows football, but when he's had several beers (as he had when he was yakking about this) his football common sense sometimes goes out the window. I, personally, think Cushing is a great size, and adding any more weight would slow him down.
