    As they are discussing injuries, they note Cushing, who's not practicing with the team, as he's pushing (or pulling) a sled on another field and McLame says something to the effect that They don't need Cushing on the field.

    I get it that "They need Cushing healthy", but with all the change, new faces on defense and an obviously different playbook, it sounds very ignorant to state they don't need Cushing in practice.

    What's wrong with Cushing? If he's working out....maybe he's being disciplined?

    Rick smith on now...

    Warren overpaid (or got too much money).

    Mitchell, Watt looking good, Toliver getting noticed.

    Over the cap right now. Need to restructure contracts.

    Went for the package Manning, JJo over Namby.

    Fullback: Vonta too much $$$ for us, nothing to report Vickers, Casey & couple of FA FBs.

    Expect exponential improve from Kareem -- underperformed -- Vance Joseph runs same breakout that Smith had.

    Safety position looking deeper. Troy Nolan, Sherrick McManis mentioned.

    Used to be Texans cuts would "fall into the abyss" ... now they get picked up by other teams. (Okoye,Anderson)

    He had knee surgery in the offseason and is still recovering.

    Cushing is still mentally involved. He participates in all the walkthroughs. He just doesn't do the contact stuff.

    Is Mcmannis moving to safety as well? I thought he would be competing for the nickel or dime corner.

    Any GM that would acknowledge this, much less pat himself on the back for it, should be fired.

    Well, the ones he drafted that fell into the abyss yeah. I give him a pass on any of the ones he got from Rasputin.

    You know, I thought the same thing when I read that, but didn't want to overreact. Interesting to see others saw it the same way. lol.

    I think he's speaking to the fact that the depth and quality of players on this team is improving, which is a good sign. I didn't read too much into it except for the idea that the team is headed in the right direction.

    I don't think he's patting himself on the back. He's saying it because it's true and the improvement in recruiting is obvious.

    Too bad Pollard isn't one of those guys who got picked up.

    I expect Harris to take the Nickel spot.

    I'm dying to see how they're changing up the secondary.

    Exactly. We are now cutting players that other teams actually want.

    It's still really stupid to bring up on the radio. Let the idiots who have to blabber for 4 hours a day come up with that kind of crap, not the GM.

    Cushing had knee surgery this off-season. He's being held out of practice for that reason alone.

    Of course Smith expects exponential improvement from Jackson, he is the doofus that drafted Jackson.
