    I was 100 % wrong about this guy. I really wanted Mathews or Oher over Cushing. Glad i was wrong and glad he's a Texan.

    Side note: So long as he stays away from illegal substances.

    Side note addendum: So long as he doesn't get caught doing illegal substances.

    IMO, he IS the primary reason our defense has been doing well this year.

    I just love what this defense has become. We have some absolute beasts on this team now. They are like Spartans. Cushing, Watt, Brooks Reed, Antonio Smith, Barwin and company. I mean these guys are monsters!! You certainly can't call any of those guys "soft".

    I've also been pleasantly surprised by Jonathan Joseph's "beast mode". I always thought he was more of a cover corner, but that guy can knock the tar out of people.

    I love this team!

    Yeah, this has suprised me, too. He's laying the lumber out there, flying around with bad intentions.

    Seems as though we're not the only ones noticing that Cushmonster is a monster:

    Huge differnce is he absolutely ISNT on anything now, and he's got to work harder regardless. I fear that the steroids issue will follow him most, of his career, and of course it gives fuel for his opposition no matter how long he plays. That's a big scathe on what the guy's doing for our D squad.

    Or he's found a way to not get caught.

    I don't know for sure that he ever was on anything, but he's playing well now and it's awesome to see.

    I personally believe that most professional athletes are on some form of performance enhancing drug or another. I don't think steroids are necessarily the first choice now like they were a few years ago.

    For example, the HCG that Cush tested positive for. Fifteen years ago, that would have been guilt by association because it was used exclusively to restore your normal testosterone production after a cycle. And that's why it's on the banned list. (As well as Clomid, the drug that replaced HCG in most bodybuilder's drug cycle.)

    But recently, hCG has been used more and more as a DIET aid. At the time of Cush's positive test, I hadn't heard of it being used that way. But since then, I've heard more and more about it being used that way and that's the way I think Cush was probably using it.

    That gets to my point. I think pro-level athletes are getting guys like Victor Conte and Patrick Arnold from the old BALCO scandal to come up with new drugs and drug cocktails to boost their performance that won't trip the tests that are currently being used. Like hGH, which has probably been phased out now that they're coming up with tests for it. Or like the blood doping techniques that bikers use except specific to football.

    The problems with injuries could come from not having the off-season workouts but it could also come from guys no longer using hGH because the new CBA allows for hGH testing to start.

    I agree. I dont know a lot about supplements and ped's but I know enough about them and have been around guys that use them to know they are always looking to stay a step ahead.

    If Cushing is taking something hopefully he stays ahead of the testers and hopefully he's not doing harm to his long term health. That would suck for him.
