Found this over on Elite.
Train with Joe Defranco or Deion Sanders?!?!?! Are you FU**ING kidding me!!! What a Joke.
Might have to buy NFL network just so I can watch Cush at the Combine......
brian cushing is going to be a great NFL player, thats for certain.
As will crabtree, but crabtree will do it more on god-given ability, whereas cushing will get there with hard work and brute strength. He will be scary good IMO
I really don't see a problem with Crabtree training with Deion Sanders. I'm sure he knows ways to help kids transition from college to the pros. Am I a fan? No. But I'm sure having Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice help get the best wide receiver in college football last season has some benefits that Defranco can't possibly provide. Either way both Crabtree and Cushing are scary good and I'm sure they'll do well at the next level. Can't say I care how either of them do at the combine though.
I agree, training with "Primetime" will benefit Crabtree tremendously.....Hopefully he can get his CD to drop before camp.....
Ive not heard of any others they have worked with, and while they may have been the greats (in Jerry's case, the Greatest of All Time at WR) that doesnt make them a top coach. Again its my opinion, but hey, they couldve worked with many others who have seen success that ive just never heard of.
Now in terms of mentoring, I could imagine no greater assets than both of them, especially Deion, just do the opposite of everything he tells you to do...
That and Im an admitted Defranco's groupie, that guy has a proven track record and has help made several guys, millions and millions of dollars...
I don't like combine prep at all. And I don't like all the unquestionable love Defranco gets. Will Defranco do a better job of getting Cushing's numbers up? Without a doubt. And he will do a much better job than Neon Deion. I know there are a bunch of wide outs and DBs that he coaches. I'm sure he does know something about what he's doing, or at least has some people working for him that do. Jerry Rice helping with route running really stood out to me though.
I am sure "Prime" can have a great, positive impact on Crabtee's life and career.... Alot like Pacman.

Quit picking on the little guys will.
That video made it seem like Cush was doing DeFranco a favor by still training with him, and that he was just putting in the hours and the hard work and training like Rocky. I think DeFranco might be the very best strength & conditioning coach an athlete like that could have, and I think the workouts he's putting his players through are proven and the most efficient way to get to the top. He's making these guys work smart just as much as work hard.

i knew you were a beast but not that kinda of a beast that eats grown men and children.. lilmase
Cushing has been working out with Defranco for years. Im suprised no one brought this up.
That safety that got 32 reps is a beast...
We should have a combine at 1-0-7.....See how many of us can pull a hammy or tear a knee...

And back on the Cushing topic, rumors are flying Cushing failed a steroid test. Anyone seen this confirmed?
