This is ****ing bullshit. Suspensions for drug use period are ****ing bullshit. When you've got people like Roethlisberger essentially raping/sexually assaulting girls and getting suspended for similar amount of times. Or other sorts of violent/legitimately criminal acts. Taking drugs doesn't harm anyone except for, occasionally, yourself.

I'm pretty surprised he was dumb enough to get caught though. Tons of players in basically every sport use steroids but most people figure out how to not fail the tests.

Lame.

I'd think he'd be more ashamed than anything

Well, 4 games does sound a bit harsh when compared to Big Ben's "alleged" fondling of a drunk female. I don't exactly see him coming in Week 5 calm, and Cush doesn't really seem to look like the type who would be ashamed/embarrassed of anything. If he is, I'm sure he will be hellbent to prove he is still a good player w/o the 'roids once he comes back.

Default Cushing suspended 4 games for steroids

We are going to be so screwed. Looks like it will be year 17 and counting since a Houston team has been in the NFL playoffs. FML.

This guy is my favorite player (no joke) and I bought a football jersey for the first time ever with his name and number.

I thought this ****er ate nothing but specially prepared meals and had state of the art masking techniques like Lance Armstrong used. Also what was this about using MMA training techniques during the offseason. FML

This really pisses me off. Let's hope one of the other "kids" can step up.

I'm interested to see what he took though. Maybe it's similar to starcaps?

Well the positives are that he will have a nice chip on his shoulder when he gets back to prove that he can play without the juice.

I don't know how much steroids affects a football player anyways. A baseball player is a different story.

I really hope that this doesn't hurt his game at all. I am worried that all those injuries would have kept him out if he weren't on the roids.

Dear god, this is not good, went from one of the brightest spots on the team to a big question mark. The next strike is missing a whole season right?

Merriman had some steroid issues as well right, and now he has turned into a pretty mediocre football player?

1. Surprised this was kept under wraps league wide so long.

2. I'm with Obsi, what substance? Inquiring minds want to know indeed.

3. Was he re-tested at any point during the season? If so did he pass that as well?

4. This is going to cause lingering concerns for me. I just think before we got it confirmed Merriman was on the juice the guy was pretty "lights out" since then not so much. I've got to wonder how much of this contributed to to such a monster rookie campaign.

I'm left thinking at least we've got decent depth at the LBer spot. Not sure why everyone is rushing Sharpton's name out there. We've still got Adibi, Bentley, and it would be nice to see Chaun Thompson finally healthy.

Could we also rotate Diles into the SLB spot?

I say we have depth but, none of them are the thumper that Cush is.

Our defense just took a tremendous blow.

I do agree with the last sentence.

That said, I don't see why he'd be upset about the amount of time he was susepenced for...It was never proved that Ben did anything illegal whereas it has pretty much been proven that Cushing took steroids...

I'm upset with Cushing at this point not the leauge for their sentence

Here is my question. The guy had training camp injury issues. Then he plays a season with no rookie wall and no injuries. Was it the roids and will his body now start having breakdowns?
