    I don't know what the boss knows but it sure would be great if it was at least reduced to a two game suspension, setting up a season premiere against the girls.

    Maybe Bob should take this man to the meeting with him, you know, just to kind of stand there and observe:

    Wow! What an interesting turn this is.

    If McNair can get Goodell to grant amnesty, what a HUGE boost to the team's psyche that would be. Something like that could set the tone for a great start to a make or break season.

    Great news, let's hope McNair makes him an offer he can't refuse.

    Hopefully the power that McNair wields, plus the new info will get it at least reduced to 2 games.

    I'm not holding my breath, but it would be awesome to even reduce it 1 game!

    If Roethlesberger's suspension can be reduced from 6 to 4 (and most think it will be) why couldn't you cut Cushing some slack too and reduce it to 1 or 2 games? I don't think there's anyway Goodell will overturn it completely but given a showing of no dirty tests since should warrant a shortening of the suspension.

    And McNair's best argument is that he's an important owner to the league. He'll be taken seriously.

    Because it's league policy: 4 games for failed tests.
