If I believed everything most of local media were saying a few years ago and even last year, Brian Cushing should be cut. These idiots don't know what the hell they are talking about. It makes me want to puke for having to listen to some of their bullshit.
The logic was, 2017, Cushing's contract would be more favorable for the Texans. For years, Cushing's contract was structured in a way that would hurt the Texans financially if they released him. The Texans cap situation was not as pretty as it is today therefore it caused unofficial capologist to make uninformed predictions.
Cushing has not been cut and from everything I'm hearing, I don't expect him to be cut. Texans are still in the Training Camp so technically it could happen but I doubt it. The Texans are in a good cap situation so there is no incentive to make the moves people were predicting.
The problem is, people fall into a habit of looking at sports static. They isolate a time period, freeze everything else and make predictions based upon that specific time. They do not even consider the future and other variables that can change outcomes.
For example, currently the Texans do not have a 1st or 2nd Round 2018 Draft Pick. Most have already expressed concerns without considering it's a year a way and Rick Smith could recoup those picks.
Most in Houston were wrong about Brian Cushing being cut and I hope they learn from it. Who am I kidding? These cats will not learn and they will do it again. The way they will remedy their incorrect prediction about Cushing is by simply not talking about it.
