Sharpton and Adibi should be a spirited competition for WILL in TC.

We're very fortunate to have such a versatile team player in Diles who will move over to SAM and be solid until Cushing comes back. If the WILL can be solid too then that will go a long way in helping us.

One thing is for sure, Ben Tate is gonna need to grow up awfully quick now. With Cushing out the first 4 games we need a serious running game and we need a back that can get us the tough yards and convert redzone opportunities into TDs.

I believe for performance enhancing drugs, it's one failed test=4 game suspension. A player has to flunk 3 recreational drug tests before earning a suspension.

I just lost my ****ing buzz, and I'm someone that wasn't really sold on Cushing until after the season...


Work your typical anti Smith and Kubiak rhertoric. The old posters know what you're about, so please show the new posters you're agenda so that they can follow along.... That'd be good.

Actually it's going back and forth, but yeah it's the way it goes. Steroids or not, I'd rather him play here than the Titans.

As there may be questions as to the exact policy and its wording, I present the official NFLPA link for The Policy on Anabolic Steroids and Related Substances 2009

Really? Do you want to buy my altered Brian Cushing jersey (no it's not really for sale)? My point? Eff Brian Cushing and his 'roided ass. Personally? I don't get the big deal about banning steroids and all that but he just cost us 4 games. That's the bottom line and I'm ticked off as a paying season ticket holder.

yes and yes. Steroids make the body heal allot faster than normal, as you probably have heard over and over during the baseball seasons. Had Cushing not taken them, my "educated guess" would be he would have been out longer with nagging injuries. It was well documented and he has said so himself that he has always played with injuries. Now we may know how he played through them all these years....

Maybe the Texans were knew this was coming, thus the Sharpton pick in the draft.

no. Joppru was medically sound coming out of Michigan. Wasn't until he was on the Texans he caught the injury bug. that maybe because he was a backup for 3 years before lighting it up his Senior year...

had he played sooner, he may have become injury prone at Michigan...
