    #$$%%^%$^%$$#%$# - great, now we're down one Offense and one Defense for TWO games.....it's not like the LT is important or anything.

    What was he thinking? Isn't he supposed to show the trainers what suplements he is taking?

    This does suck, but I'm not too worried personally.

    He should have known better, especially after what happened to Cushing!

    It's not "steroids", not yet anyway.

    I think it's doable. Problem, at least in my way of thinking, is I hope this doesn't have a direct effect on Schaub's health come Sunday.

    I can tell you all this much, Rashad Butler will be ready and will play his ass off. I've followed him on twitter for a long time and he thinks he's a starter already. He's told me flat out he expects to be a starter for someone someday soon. He has the opportunity to put up 4 games of starting tape for he and his agent to shop to other teams with no left tackle in the offseason.

    Cush and Brown will be out for Dallas and Oakland.

    Brown will be out for Giants and Kansas City.

    It will be tough having to block The Dallas D and NYG D with Butler. I suspect we can still beat KC and Oakland though. If we lose to Dallas/NYG and beat Oakland and KC, we would be 4-2 going into the bye.

    I am not writing off the Dallas/NYG game or taking the KC/Oakland game for granted, I am simply saying that if that were to happen, 4-2 is a pretty good place to be after 6 games.

    something i'm curious about is why they didnt appeal, if nothing else than to keep his supsension from overlapping with cushing's. i assume they want to get the suspension over with as soon as possible without drawing it out or giving the media too much to talk about, but that's a big blow to not have both cushing and brown for a pair of games.

    butler's had a small fan club around here, he's going to have a heck of a test this weekend against ware.

    Just a guess here, but maybe we'll be running the ball to the right side a lot more. LOL

    A lot of times what happens is a player will take a supplement with nothing illegal written in the ingredients, but when it gets into the body it metabolizes into a banned substance that tests can pick up. Happened to a close friend at the college level and the testers told him it happens way more than someone knowingly cheating, especially at the professional level.

    I'd imagine that we'll be using a TE and/or RB to help out Butler with his blocking assignments on D. Ware.

    I have NFL rewind, so I can go back to last season and see how Rashad butler did in his half of football against the Rams. Oh man.

    If they appeal it and it is upheld, there's no telling when the suspension will land. It could go till week 15 and then he would miss a playoff game for his 4th game. That would be BAD...
