Brian Cushing on James Harrison: “I’ll pray for him”

AP

Texans linebacker Brian Cushing has decided not to fire back after learning that Steelers linebacker James Harrison ripped him in a recent interview.

Harrison said in the interview that Cushing, who was suspended for the first four games of 2010 for violating the league’s steroid policy, is “juiced out of his mind.”

When asked to respond, Cushing told FOX 26 in Houston, “I’ll pray for him.”

That’s apparently going to be Cushing’s standard response to questions about Harrison; it’s the same thing he said to the Houston Chronicle.

Harrison is far from the first person to criticize Cushing regarding his positive test for a substance that can be used to mask steroid use, but it’s not clear whether there’s anything in particular that put Cushing in Harrison’s crosshairs. Cushing has never played in a game against the Steelers.

  1. When asked to respond, Cushing told FOX 26 in Houston, “I’ll pray for him.”
    ———————–
    in a later response Cushing was quoted saying “im glad im off the juice it was making me Angry and Stupid like J.Harrison”

  2. …ha ha ha…so someone calls out his obvious use of performance enhancing drugs and the best response big bri can think of is that he plans to try to communicate telepathically to his imaginary friend in the sky about it…as this week has proven, it takes a lot to sound less intelligent than james harrison but big bri is making it look easy by once again using his religious delusions as a crutch…

  3. Harrison appears to be targeting Cushing for the same reason he accuses Goodell of fining him.

  4. … all NFL players are on steroids. I still love the NFL and love what it is today. But It’s my personal belief they are all on steroids, and I accept that.

  5. I wouldn’t mess with James Harrison either. Dude looks crazy enough to carry grenades on him.

  6. ” it’s not clear whether there’s anything in particular that put Cushing in Harrison’s crosshairs. Cushing has never played in a game against the Steelers.”

    Well, it’s certainly not because Cushing is a white LB.

    Harrison hates racism. He said so himself.

  7. i wonder what big bri said when his sky fairy allowed him to be suspended for the first four games of 2010 for violating the league’s steroid policy?!?
    was it bless you sky fairy for i have sinned?

  8. … all NFL players are on steroids. I still love the NFL and love what it is today. But It’s my personal belief they are all on steroids, and I accept that.

    Agreed, except I think it’s more around 75% or so. The quarterbacks, kickers, etc. don’t need to be on that stuff. Their bodies take a beating and their livelihood depends on how well they perform. Can you honestly blame them?

    And by all quarterbacks, I mean every QB except Brady Quinn. Pretty sure that guy juices.

  9. Um, anyone think Harrison was on his “race issue” tirade when he decided to bring up Cushing? He said driving VY’s head into the ground cost him $5k & barely touching Drew Brees cost him $20k.

  10. Wow, it was nice of the biggest dirtbag in football to pop up and take some visibility off Harrison.

  11. Weakest come back ever! I get it hes in lame ass bible thumping Texas, but come on grow a set please. Harrison may be on something but he didn’t fail any test for anything like the over training Cushing did he? I love Harrison and I’m not even a Steelers fan. I hope he still plays the way he always has. What Vagina Ball Goodell and fantasy football people want is soft. When I played I hit someone as hard as I could. Before we got up I would shove there face or throw dirt in there face, maybe if I could sneak it in a punch to the gut. I get Harrison’s mentality, most of you sissies have never even laced them up. Football used to be for wild and crazy maniacs, now its for soft, weak, vagina folds.

  12. Kc4life: as a fan that looks at football for what it is, entertainment, I don’t care if they juice if it enhances my entertainment! Some people take these games(sports) too seriously. Just a game people!

  13. Harrison is an idiot! Just watch his tweets and comments. What a joke, no matter that he has become a very good player. He should just do his job and keep his mouth shut!

  14. name one drug test Harrison failed. name players besides cushing who failed a drug test. if these players were on steroids, they would be suspended and ultimately out if the NFL.

  15. He’ll regret having that picture taken, I’ll bet. On top of this interview he decides to pose for THAT freakin’ picture? As someone mentioned, I think dude may be bi-polar.
    And if either of the Rhyming Reverends were even remotely sincere about what they preach, they’d call out Harrison for “message” that he’s sending to youths of America.
    I’ll take the under.

  16. Just remember to take the needle out of your ass before you kneel and start talking to yourself

  17. Egregious could have all the people in Asia praying for him and he’ll still go straight to Hell.

  18. Right…Harrison is on steroids because he’s arguably the best all-around OLB in the league and is muscular. I guess we can say Clay Matthews and Ware on ‘roids too. They’re just as relentless. Last I heard Harrison never tested positive for anything.

  19. From his personal arsenal it looks like Egregious has moved from big time drug consumer to small time drug dealer.

  20. Saying “I’ll pray for you” is the lamest comeback ever.” Brian Cushion is soft without his roids.

  21. I read the comments that Harrison made and if he hates his boss so much (not the money he makes) then he should pack up and try the CFL or anyplace else where he does not have to put up with the crap he says that Goodell says and is.

  22. sashquash20: “I get it hes in lame ass bible thumping Texas…”

    Well, Einstein, our economy is humming, 1500 people a day are moving here, and corporations are driving moving vans (and jobs) in here hourly. The streets are paved with gold here but how are things doing in your crappy state? Maybe if you prayed a little more, you wouldn’t be wallowing in your miserable little life.

  23. I didn’t know Harrison talked about Cushing…. I thought wth this is so random why would they ask a Cushing of all people? lol No but I thought Cushing handled this well.

  24. Jairus Byrd should have been DROY…it’s a shame he lost the re-vote because voters were essentially voting against the re-vote.

    Wow, you’re incredibly naive if you believe that. There is NO TEST for HGH in the NFL and there are all sorts of designer steroids that can be hidden from tests as well as other methods of avoiding failing a steroid test. You think every guy who hasnt failed a test is clean? Thats like thinking that every person who has never had a speeding ticket never speeds.

  26. James Harrison – Somebody actually said about the only thing you can say for wannabe HOF. Pray for his dumb ass. Or, get him to take up UFC where he’ll have to wait longer for the whistle so he can try to cheat after having his ass handed to him.

  27. The guy gets suspended for 4 games in 2010 for steroid use after knowing the NFL rules and policies.

    James Harrison says”He’s juiced out of his mind”

    Whats wrong with that comment. He’s stating the obvious. Maybe cushing should start praying he stays off ROIDS when he should aalready know better.

    I doubt silverback needs any prayers from this guy.

  28. Yes, I get that Harrison has been trying to outdo Terrell Suggs with the controversial stupid comments. That said, Brian, what exactly has he done that you need to pray for him?!

  29. Harrison is a douche but responding to criticism with “Ill pray for him” is like saying responding with “Nazis were bad people!” or “I like puppies”. I mean, sure it baits an emotional response that we can all get behind, but I remember O.J. Saying something similar when asked about someone who said he was a muderer.

    If you are Billy Grahm and respond to a public criticism with “I’ll pray for him”. I can buy it. but if you are a man whom regularly talks tough about kicking the opponents ass and you respond to accusations of cheating with something other than “He is just jelous” or “F that crazy D bag”. I think someone coached you up to say ” Puppies are cute” anytime someone calls your shaky integrity into question.

  30. @steelcurtain: don’t be a naive little idiot when it’s convenient for defending your player on your favorite team. Most NFL players use steroids and that includes Harrison

  31. Oh, and Harrison isn’t on roids himself?? Harrison is definitely the pot calling the kettle black!! Come on, I’m guessing 67% of NFL players are ‘on the sauce’ or at least have been ‘on the sauce’… Harrison needs to STFU!!

    Personally, I wouldnt want our NFL players NOT to be ‘on the sauce’… Might as well stick to watching Pop Warner football if thats the case…

  32. crazy or not. steriods or not, Harrison is the best lb in football…he can talk and walk it. BC is like Jose Batustia …juiced and still losing….

    Yes, and your girlfriend still has the bruises to prove it, what a man!

    I would think the same kind of test that nailed Cushing would also work on Harrison. Otherwise it sounds like the only idiot players are the ones getting caught. I say let em take what they want until they all kill each other.

  35. I am from the great city of Akron and I am very familiar with the Harrison family. All the men in this family are all built like mack trucks and mean! No steroids just some strong and mean S.O.B’s!

  36. This Cushing-Harrison feud is another reason why Michael Huyghue and the UFL is laughing at the NFL. While NFL players are creating trouble and ripping their peers (like Harrison), we never hear any troublemakers in the UFL, Arena Football or the CFL.
    If you want to see a real role model, instead of that idiot James Harrison, watch the UFL on VERSUS this fall. I’m sick and tired of hearing #92’s diarrhea mouth.
