Grady Jackson suspended 4 games

Postby Pudge » Sun Oct 26, 2008 6:34 pm

Looks like Grady is among the multiple NFL players that tested positive for the diuretic that also got Deuce among others. Can't blame him for trying to lose a little weight. :|

Is he subject to a 4 game suspension? Has he had earlier failures? I have not read the policy before so the "masking agent" may be a 4 gamer without prior hots.

IMHO, that's going too far. Hell, a diuretic is not the same as a strength enhancing steroid. Anybody overweight knows the value of a good diuretic. He needs to get a good lawyer and appeal.

Who's going to fill in for him? I'm surprised none of you guys are panicking... hasn't Grady been an important player against the run for us? He clogs up those holes pretty well. :lol:

If these guys are suspended, the Saints will be without a few key players when they come to town.
The Falcons are rising!

This is a bunch of bs. These guys take that stuff to keep their weight down.

You all know all that stuff does is make you pee,...well, lawyers don't know. The NFL is making this out to be a cover-up drug???,...for steroids??? When these guys are the biggest players in the league?

Nice jab at the Vikings and Saints boys,...without Grady, the Falcons are again the lightest D-line in football, great reasoning there. :roll:

May be true, PB, but it is my understanding it is on the list of banned drugs so you either need to get it off the list or not take it. Disagreement with a dumb law does not absolve guilt...or a million potheads would have clean records! :lol:

I'd have to agree. This sucks, though.

IMO. Grady probably was using this to drop weight, not mask steroids, and he will be getting the same 4 game suspension as if he had used steroids: so I would just go ahead and admit it.

Grady: 'I took steroids'. I wanted to get even BIGGER' ( sarcastic as hell). Might as well shame Goodell a little, and he's already put the hammer down, so make fun of him. :wink:

for those that think this wont matter: remember the last 2 goal line stands where the Falcons held the O to 3 points because they could not punch it in? That's going away for the next 4 games. Moorehead alone cant do the job, it was the combo that worked so well.

If McFadden plays for Oakland we are in big trouble without Gravy to eat him up.
