Hard Knocks Brian Cushing Is The Bad Guy Jock Who Loses The Girl In Every Teen Movie You’ve Ever Seen (Videos)
I don’t know if there’s a difference between the real Brian Cushing and Hard Knocks Brian Cushing. However, I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume the hardass superbro persona featured on this week’s episode is one he affects for training camp and television purposes, and that beneath the testosterone-crusted surface there’s a real human being who likes smoothies and puppy dog kisses just as much as the rest of us.
I’m glad Hard Knocks Brian Cushing exists, though. He is very entertaining.
Early on in the latest episode of HBO’s training camp documentary series, Cushing is taking a breather during practice and chatting with Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins when, for some reason, Hopkins asks Cushing if he drinks lattes. Obviously, Cushing has a bro answer for that:
A little later on in the episode Cushing takes center stage again. While the team is running some blocking drills, we see Cushing repeatedly bumping into running back Alfred Blue on purpose like he’s the captain of the high school football team walking down the freshmen hallway. Then, when Blue gives Cushing the slightest push after a drill, Cushing gets pissed and challenges Blue to one more play…and then detroys him.
But the best part was Cushing’s teen movie villain punchline at the end:
“Third, I’m the man!”
Somebody in Houston should probably tell Cushing that JJ Watt is the man.
