Brian Cushing down, on a dirty 'block' aimed right at his knees

Greeting Texans Fans,

We’ll talk about the game itself later, let’s talk about some screwed up rules and low down dirty players first.

Several plays earlier, DJ Swearinger leaping over Alex Smith scampering into a slide and his elbow inadvertently touched Smith’s helmet. This was a penalty, it was an indisputable “no-no” according to the NFL.

Then Brian Cushing, rushing in on Smith, Jamaal Charles sees him, and instead of blocking him, makes a conscious decision to go low and speared Cushing’s knee.

This may have ended Cushing’s season, maybe even his career.

This is “legal” in the NFL.

Charles should be as heavily penalized as much as possible by the rule book.  In fact, if Cushing’s out for the year, so should he.

Eye for an eye as it were.

That was low down dirty what he did. Houston just pulled to within one, with a field goal, I’m back to the game, but boy did that make me angry. The NFL doesn’t care about players, just the ones that make them money.
