Default Trouble for Talib

A guy who tests positive three times and acts as though its not a big deal since the 1st time he told his coach he was going to test positive just does not get it.

Whats he going to to opnce he has a pocket full of cash?

I think it's safe to say that Mr. Talib will not be a Houston Texan at this point in time.

Yeah, if this is true, Talib is likely off the Texans board. It's not just a directive from Bob McNair. Smith & Kubiak have seen Mike Shanahan take guys with questionable character and have it come back to haunt the Broncos.

That's one of the problems fans have in determining draft prospects. We don't know what NFL teams know. This is the time of the year this type of stuff begins to leak out. But, we never know everything.

Speaking of not knowing everything, someone forgot to tell John McClain about Talib's problems. Da General has the Texans taking the Kansas corner in the NFL.com mock draft.

Admitting to using and testing positive multiple times is different. No making excuses for anyone here.

Indeed. Amobi admitted to trying it one time, Talib not ony has failed multiple drug tests but he even told his coach that he was going to fail the test before hand. It's selfish behaviour to put your team and it's season in risk my contiuingly breaking the law.

It takes away from their game if they're on drug suspension. People make mistakes. But 3 mistakes that are exactly the same mistake? That doesn't seem like a guy who is learning the error of his ways.

Let's not turn this into how bad marijuana is or isn't. That's not the point. The NFL requires players to follow the rules of employment. If a guy believes smoking weed is more important than playing pro football, he can get a number of jobs that don't require drug testing. If football (and the $$$ that comes with it) is more important, than he should have the willpower and discretion to put the smoke out until his football career is over. It's really that simple.

Are you kidding me? He did not test positive one time and learn his lesson, he tested positive three times and acted like it was not an issue! There is a new sheriff in the NFL and agree with him or not if Talib cant stay away from the Hippie Lettuce he WILL be suspended and our 18th pick will be wasted. Ask Travis Henry, if he was not lucky enough to win his BS appeal last season he would have been suspended again. My concern is not that he smoked pot in college, bif F deeal. The issue is he got caught twice and continued the beahvior anough to get caught a third time!

Exactly, if it was a one time deal I'd say big deal; like most teams did with Calvin Johnson and Amobi Okoye.

It's the getting got 3 times. Mr. Goddell does not play by the old rules.

Apples and oranges.

I've been a Talib fan, and have said before that I wouldn't mind seeing him taken at #18, but if the facts as reported are correct, I no longer feel that way. I don't think taking him off the draftboard is over-reacting. It's not like Talib was a top 10 pick to begin with.
