When I heard Brian Cushing was suspended, I got concerned. What if he was unable to play against the Jaguars? Who would we victimize for scores if Brian is not there? The one player I could count on not being in the play was Brian. The Jaguars have targeted him so many times, it gets to be a good sport. I remember the first game when he stood there frozen as David Garrard walked 9 yards in for the score. Walked right past him!
Then there was the time Ernest Wilford caught the touchdown pass as Brian stood and watched. Brian Cushing loves to watch the Jaguars score almost as much as I do!
But my all time favorite was when Zack Miller came over the middle with Brian in coverage. Zack caught the ball right in front of him! Then, just to make it even more fun, Zack ran away from him. In fact, it is so much fun to relive, after the jump, let’s revisit the Zack Miller beats Brian Cushing experience. I just love watching it.
In the mean time, I have to ask this of Brian. Please don’t do anything silly to miss any Jaguar games. Get yourself clean and back on the field. Seriously, you are a football player that doesn’t belong sitting. As a Jaguar fan, it just wouldn’t be the same without you!
