Jet fan here. I want to apologize for that stupid block that our guard Matt Slauson put on Cushion's knees. There is not a place for a blocker to take out a player's knees. I hope he gets fined & suspended. The Jets are not a dirty team, and there is not a place for that in the NFL. Sorry.

First off, good to see ya!
Secondly, I listened to Kubiak's press conference on the radio a little while ago and he said that Dobbins will start in Cush's place, at least initially, and that he played well yesterday. (I thought so too)
He also said that we have 9 LBs on the roster and that while Cushing cannot be replaced, that other guys would have to elevate their play and the defense as a group would work together to fill the void.
Typical coachspeak in other words....noidea

I agree with you.
Different guys emerged last year when guys got injured.
I expect more of the same and Wade will work to scheme around the strengths of the guys he has to work with.....

No worries, Cy.
It sucks and it probably shouldn't of happened but it is what it is.....noidea

Every team in the league runs some zone schemes in their offense (the Texans more than most) and linemen are taught to cut block.
There's a right and wrong way to do it though, and that wasn't the right way.
It occurred from behind and outside the "tackle box", making it an illegal clip.
I expect there will be a fine.

Disgusted by the play. Im a big fan of Cushing and the Texans in general. The guy is a champ and will come back stronger than ever! I have no doubt about it. Also, my pre-season SB pick was Texans over Niners. I stand by it! Cant wait till we play you guys. Should be a fun one.

No doubt, Anytime.
Cushing is driven to be a great player and will work hard to make it back better than before.
Time will tell...
