    I could care less about Cushing addressing anyone, just want him to address his regimen as it pertains to the NFL policy so that it has no impact on a loss of games, nor his level of play.

    I just want Cushing to hurry up and get back on the field. The defense will not be the same without his physical presence.

    I'm sure it will be. At least on FSW if nowhere else.

    edit: Probably NFLN also.

    Agreed. However, I do think he should address his team. As far as what he say to the media and the fans...pffft, it'll likely be bullbutter anyways.

    LOL.

    Then form tackle a random reporter. Never saying a single word the whole time.

    Icing on the cake.

    I couldn't disagree more. I think players and coaches have an obligation to the fans. I want to hear what he has to say. I only wish there were competent media representatives there to ask him good questions.

    Preferably Justice. If not, McGobbler would suffice.

    You actually think he'd tell the truth? It doesn't matter what the media asks if the player's going to dodge or lie while answering.

    Then again how many press conferences just turn into the person reading a scripted statement?

    McGobbler. LOL!

    Are you the one who has all the McGrady name-twists over in the NBA forum?

    McGobbler is epic. I don't think I can rep you anymore right now. LOL x 1 billion.

    Yep. There is some history of athletes being disingenuous about supplement/drug/steroid use, to say the least. I don't think the bull on Cushing's helmet automatically makes him any more or less candid on the matter.

    First of all, he took a substance that's on the banned list. That's not even debatable. So he's guilty.

    Second, there's no way he's going to tell any truth other than that, if he even does that. If he truly, honestly believes he didn't take the substance (despite the failed test), then he will have to put the league on blast in order to say so. Calling the NFL a bunch of liars at this point is liable to get him a speech from the Godfather. If he is guilty of taking the substance (or worse), he's not going to say so.

    The PC will be a waste of time.

    I want to see the "Against the Raiders for a safety" style takedown tackle.

    BUT

    I agree. It absolutely has to be done without a word being spoken.

    Ha, there were plenty of us that destroyed McPurse's name. He made it too easy.

    I hope he scores a TD this year and holds the football to his other arm like a sorenge as his endzone celebration.
