Fine them. Suspend them. Cutting them completely from the team is utterly excessive. Especially players with potential upside.

I find your draconian zero tolerance policy just ironic,

badboy.
You don't want your players getting high before gameday though.

I suspect they weren't that great to see the field...I mean two of them were UDFAs...

Wade and Kubiak aren't that bad to miss talent and if Jefferson/Montogomery were any good in the first place they would have been in the rotation by now, especially Sam.

As for Wood, that's just his loss.

If they are being accused of smoking weed test them on the spot, marijuana stays in your system for 28 days so if they were smoking they would flunk a drug test.

See my post above. If I smoked pot I wouldn't submit to a test. You might not get another chance to play in the NFL if you get suspended for drugs as a first year player.

Ridiculous hypothetical, no offense.

You were smoking a freaking sweat, trees, or whatever the hell the kids call them now. You probably got cut on the simple fact that you couldn't man up to begin with. Me and two other guys went in the bathroom to smoke cigars'... In the old NFL weekend update skit... REALLY?!
Agree. If this was a smoking infraction, no was was it a cigar. This was weed. You can often smell it dozens of feet away.

So if you play football, you get to hang in topless bars, with prostitutes and smoke dope? Why is there an exemption for that? Rules are in place for a reason. How about manning up and following them? Why should athletes get exception? All tennis players do is smack a tiny ball as do golfers, so they by your definition have to obey rules but not football players? Why is my view draconian? The players union agreed to it so live up to it. You sound like the boy who said "if there wasn't a stupid rule I would not have broken it."

Never would happen, so moot point.

I already explained why in the post you quoted... "Texans waive players", before I even clicked on the thread or knew anything about it or who it involved I was hoping Reed was one of them (one of the "Texan players waived".. hence why I "interjected" that post into this thread.

So now you know and I hope that clears up the confusion.

did i say reward them for their anarchistic behavior?

I said fine them, suspend them. To completely go zero tolerance and cut them from your team is excessive.

There's more than one way to hold players accountable. Athletic ability, talent, upside, that is what this game is about. That is a valuable commodity. These guys are paid to play football, not be role models.

Punish them but dont cut them.

If they smoked pot - they deserved to be cut. You do understand they would have been drug tested and suspended by the NFL eventually anyways right? Playing in the NFL is a privilege. If you can't spend your first year pot-free then enjoy sacking groceries instead of QBs.

Can we please get the dude who fumbled 4 times in one preseason game? I'm hoping we can figure out how to finish with the worst record in the league so I think he'd be perfect.
