All they've done is made Watt angry. And you won't like Watt when he's angry

Fark Gary Kubiak. That turd has a history of having his offensive linemen cut block as a habit.

It's too bad it happened, especially to a great player like Cushing, but this is karma for all the people who've had their knees wrecked and legs broken by Kubiak-led offenses.

This farking sucks, especially this early in the season.

Just rub some steroids on it.

Tough for the bodies connective parts to hold up under the stress of all those steroid induced oversized muscles, huh?

Okay. Headline is funny especially after the power rankings thread

That seems fair. Did you see the way his ACL made Slauson clip him? He's only trying to protect player safety.

Cut blocking team has defensive player's knee destroyed by opponant's cut blocking?
Oh well shiat happens

Maybe Adrian Peterson can share some of his HGH with him to heal faster?

I'd be less concerned about this if Sharpton wasn't still hurt. He's no Cushing but he has enough talent to be another DeMeco Ryans. I'll just trust that they have somewhat of a backup plan.

/ in Wade we trust

If the cut block had been in front and while the play was going in that direction it would be one thing, but this was from behind away from the play and completely unnecessary. Cut blocking is used by just about every team out there as part of a run blocking scheme but you can't do it from behind the player. Fines or suspensions will be coming...

FTA:

After five weeks of the 2012 season, the Texans have allowed the fourth-fewest yards passing and the ninth-fewest receiving.

Someone explain. How is this possible? Did they mean "rushing" in place of "receiving"?

No see it is OK for defensive players to have career ending injuries. It doesn't matter that he was intentionally injured, because he isn't a QB or WR.

But if you happen to touch a QB or WR somewhere in the non-allowed area, which extends from the top of the head to the top of the shoulder pads, then goes up from the feet to the bottom of the shoulder pads, then you can count on Goodell to be coming for you.

I'm pretty sure Cushing already has his own supply.

I like Cushing from his days from 'SC so I really really hope he doesn't continue down the path that Shawn Merriman followed, but he just took another step in that direction.

It's a technical football thing. You wouldn't understand.

I blame the NFL's decision to move the umpire from the defensive backfield to the offensive backfield. The umpire's job is to watch the blocks on the line of scrimmage and the action around the runner, but that's awful hard if you have a mass of offensive linemen and defensive linemen still grappling with each other between you and the dirty hit. The only official in position to call that foul would be the head linesman, and as the play ends, he's more focused on watching the runner and getting the spot, and less so on the action around the runner. If the umpire was still in the defensive backfield, this foul would be more likely to be seen and called. As it is, the NFL still has the prerogative to levy a hefty fine against Slauson.

Sure seems that way. Step 1 is to roid it up and get suspended for it. Step 2 is the frequent injuries that go along with said roid usage. Step 3 is your team gets tired of paying you to play only a handfull of games each season and ships you off to Buffalo, where you under-perform until you are benched/cut and fade into obscurity.

The problem with your argument is that the hit in question wasn't actually illegal. Defensive linemen aren't protected from those types of blocks the way offensive linemen are. You can argue that it should be illegal, and I would agree with you, but this has nothing to do with the NFL moving the umpire around.

Valid point. Unless Clay Matthews used his supply up?*

*To show I am not afraid to point out guys on my team that are obviously juicing, too

Except for the fact that the block was outside of the box where cut blocks are allowed, struck the player from behind, and hit him at and below his knee. So yeah, besides being illegal on those counts, it was a legal hit.

Everyone knows it was offensive line coach and assistant head coach Alex Gibbs who preached the backside cut block.

He then went to the Falcons and then the Texans.

Hmm. That wasn't my understanding of the rule, but I could well be wrong.

You left out choke a whore until she passes out. Or is that part of step 1 or 2?

It's not an illegal hit at the NFL level. At college and most HS, yes, but at the NFL, legal.

Cheap as hell, but legal.

And i Roger Hitler really gives a darn about player safety, he'd change the rule.

Meh, I played with a Sid Vicious level tib fib break. In fact, if I wasn't partially paralyzed after a game I played to soft.
