He's basically an intern... some making it bigger than what it is
The FO has been on the job for a little more than a yr and did a really good job with their 1st draft.
So he's gonna be a trainee coach, nothing wrong with that. And in 10 years when he's the head coach we'll all be calling for his head on the chopping block instead of OBs.
Cushing has never wanted to identify the specific source of his suspension. But from what I have been able to determine from several sources, the 2nd incident involved the use of a prescription drug that was to prophylactically treat the progression of chronic memory and reaction changes due to traumatic head injuries (concussions). His need to hide his problems/fears from the team and others led him to seek "outside" the rules medications.
Damn....well this genius move didn't help any
Your mileage may vary
Davenport responds to Cushing's training methods .
yeah....but can he move his feet?
The old saying goes "Slow feet don't eat!"
Don't need to eat, just juice.
Texans o-line all year:
Just hope he teaches the guys to not share needles....
Then they should have named him a defensive QC assistant.
Naming him asst S/C coach, the Texans are either thumbing their noses at the NFL & it's policies, or they're as clueless as we think.
I'm praying for the former.
What policy are they thumbing their poses (sic) at?
The Texans havent made an official announcement, so the team hasnt named him anything officially yet. It's been reported that he will help with the s/c and the defense but no official title has been handed down. Quite possibly a role to see which direction if any, he wants to go in.
Plus even if it is strictly S/C Cush knows a lot about nutrition and working out to maintain strength through out the season and through out injuries. Listen to him on Arians podcast, he is very passionate about it
That may very well be the case. But his history of alleged use is slap in the face worthy.
Word around the campfire is that he started juicing as soon as he stepped foot on the USC campus, and continued all the way through his NFL tenure.. he just happened to get caught a couple times.
Steroids not only give you the physical capabilities necessary to compete but also the mental attitude one needs to dominate the gridiron.
Personally.. I'd rather see everyone juiced to the gils (if they want to) and put on some truly miraculous games and feats of physical prowess.
Therefore.. who cares what he did and while it may be humorous given his new position.. you have to believe he probably knows what he's doing in the gym.. so, kudos.
That would lead to a Bodybuilding Competition type of move:
NFL: Athletes are all-natural.
XNFL: Extreme competition where the athletes are "max juiced". Less rules would be needed since the game could surely be extended due to penalties and ejections.
Wait, XNFL......XFL, my God man you have discovered Vinny Mac's plan for how to compete with the NFL.
"No, no congressman, its not actually football its football entertainment."
This is the worst suggestion ever. If you look at cycling, you had to be drugged off your face to even get on the tour in the 90s and 00s. It becomes a choice about whether to compete in the sport or not if PEDs are "optional".
As for the hire. I like it. Dude always kept in shape, made the most of what he had left for several years after a devastating injury. One of the longest tenured in team history. One club man. Getting in at a relatively low level to learn his new craft.
People love to hate on Cushing. I'm not a fan of the PED suspensions, and he was past his best for a significant portion of his career, but all things considered he was a great Texan who played his heart out.
Separate names with a comma.
