But England suffered an even more severe slump to be bowled out for just 136 in reply, with rejuvenated left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Johnson leading the way as Cook's men suffered a spectacular collapse that saw six wickets lost for nine runs.
Australia captain Michael Clarke and David Warner pressed home the hosts advantage with second innings hundreds before England were bowled out for 179 with more than a day to spare.
"It's very worrying (to have lost so heavily)," Hussain told Sky Sports.
"They were bullied. It wasn't as though Australia started well and they continued -- England were bossing the game,” he said.
"On day one they were in control, all the memories of the summer (England retained the Ashes with a 3-0 series win on home soil earlier this year) were still there, they were playing well and since then it's just been an absolute shambles,” he added.
"A lot of it has to do with the opposition, Mitchell Johnson is unrecognisable from the bowler we have seen in previous Ashes battles, the confidence and the togetherness are unrecognisable from the team we saw in England, thanks to (coach) Darren Lehmann," Hussain said.
