Eesh, that's a lot. I'm ok with the guaranteed figure though.


Meh, not bad as I thought it would be. 21 mil guaranteed for a top 1-2 MLB is pretty good.


FIFY

The Texans run a 1-2 defensive scheme? I guess a line of J.J. Watt is still better than a line of three or four human defensive linemen.

He said he's a "top 3-4" LB, as in, 3-4 defense... what's a 1-2 defense?

I think he was implying that Cushing is a top 1 or 2 MLB in the NFL thinking the previous guy was saying he was only in the 3 or 4 range. Hard to misread but it happens.

Ketchup agrees with me. The fact that you misunderstood that, further exemplifies the fact that you are an idiot droid.

Billy wasn't the one that called him a MLB...

He said for "a top 3-4 MLB", and you said he's "a top 1-2 MLB", which means that you said he plays for a 1-2 system.

You misunderstood the first guy and Ketchup doesn't agree with you, all 3 of us [green included] understood it the same way, you're the only one who didn't.

Him using "MLB" over "ILB" doesn't change anything.

Hopefully you get banned for what you said by the way.

texans_uk, I like you but you know better than to personally attack a poster. I know you've been warned in the past about this. Please lay off calling people idiots, if you can't then don't post...

I saw it the same way Billy and green24 did with it being a top 3-4 (as in defensive scheme) MLB. I did however see how someone could misinterpret it as being top 3-4 (as in player ranking) MLB.

Resorting to the name calling wasn't necessary for a simple mix up.

Exactly, this entire post is dead on.

A) I'm not sure why he targeted me when all of us were right and he was wrong.

B) The second part of your post about the naming calling was so off from his part... he either has anger issues or he's just mad about all the previous times he tried to tell me off and failed and this is just another one.

You have to see the contract to know how much of that money he's going to receive, but it looks like the Texans overpaid

For comparable money, would anyone really rather have Cushing over Willis?

How is this relevant to the topic? Is it really necessary? PLease dont veer off like this, its not really wanted.

To stay on topic, great signing for a very, very good LB.

I really wasn't the one who started derailing this thread but you're right of course, should be back on topic so it wouldn't get locked.

I'm actually curious to why the Texans didn't wait a year to see if Cushing is 100% back to his pre-injury form before giving him this deal, i figure that he probably is but it's a bit risky on their part not to wait until at least mid-season [although Texans GM Rick Smith has a policy against mid-season extensions] or next off-season before doing this deal with him.
