    I used to think the NBA required athletic skill. That part has gone downhill, and now the heroes are the ones who find ways to draw fouls to get free throws.....aka Beard.

    You associate yourself with eggball Texans, a team filled with cheats and a fake leader in JJ Fatt who led his team to a 2-14 EMBARASSMENT and 0-30 HUMILIATION at HOME

    I prefer to follow the best team the City of Houston has ever seen in the Rockets who brought this city 2 CHAMPIONSHIPS. We do not have any cheating players who take drugs

    I will always root for all Houston teams. As for cheats, well, you don't know really, do you? I am guessing more use PED's in football than basketball.

    Yeah the Zach Cunningham era also began tonight. He looked really good out there for a rookie.

    Defense actually improved. Cunningham looks like a future monster

    If you are Loki, and you see Thor shooting up steroids, there's got to be a point at which you think f this, and try to destroy the world.

    Should have cut him, not a very good player anyway.

    In a year where there were ELITE offensive guards and tackles available in free agency and we needed them we sat on a ton of salary cap cash and kept guys like Cush around. This was a wasted offseason.

    This is the end for Cushing. Had a good run, but he sucks now and needs to open up a gym for roiders.

    Cushing reportedly suspended for Betamine.

    Your local ingredient found in C4 pre workout. Woah. 10 games is ludicrous.

    We had enough cash after trading Brock to make moves if we wanted. Not improving the OL was just another boneheaded move by Rick and Co.

    Yup. But unless they were planning on handing over the entire $26M in remaining salary available to him, they still had some cash to make a move. For instance, Mike Remmers visited the Texans and ended up inking a 5 year/30M deal. That signing still would've left us $20M+ for Romo.

    But the decision not to improve the OL carried through the draft, undrafted FA, and even through training camp cuts and Brown holding out. In other words, don't think Cushing precluded us from addressing what almost every single fan saw as a huge issue.

    When you say "all along" do you mean since the summer like the article says, or his entire career? Something 610 was saying about the defranco stuff yesterday was that Cushing's been doing this since they've been training together which was since high school.

    If anything, it's pretty damning of the system, that he's been on and off of dhea and probably other steroids, and was able to milk a long and monetarily justifiable NFL career out of it. Scary concussions aside.
