I really hope they strip the defensive ROY award from him.

Same here. It seems like the right thing to do.

Yes it is. That Peppers still got DROY, and that he was suspended during the same season as the offense. ''We did not want the suspension to affect some of the 2003 season,'' Marvin Demoff, the agent for Peppers, said. If Cushing was tested in Sept., why did they wait to suspend him?

SWEET!!

Brian Orakpo may stand to benefit from Brian Cushing's suspension


Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo's case for defensive Rookie of the Year could be open again -- sort of.

Dave Goldberg, a longtime voter and advisor for the Associated Press's annual award, says that a re-vote is possible after it was revealed that last season's winner, Houston linebacker Brian Cushing, tested positive for a banned substance.

The Associated Press is discussing whether to strip Cushing of the award. It could simply allow voters to cast their votes again to see if they feel Cushing is still deserving of the honor.

Orakpo finished a distant fourth in the initial voting, but no one was close to Cushing and those votes could be re-distributed in a variety of ways.

The award is determined by a nationwide vote of media members. Here's how the initial vote breakdown looked: Cushing 39, Buffalo safety Jairus Byrd 6, Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews 3 and Orakpo 2.

Cushing finished fifth in the league with 134 tackles, and Byrd was tied for the league-lead with nine interceptions. Orakpo was tied for seventh in the league with 11 sacks, one more than Matthews.

Big difference here. Cushing no question probably took some juice but let me say that there is no such thing as a miracle drug. A lot of hard work and dieting went into changing his body.

Re: Brian Cushing Suspended 4 Games

So it looks like they're going to re-vote...but wouldn't it be something if Cushing still won anyway

Re: Brian Cushing Suspended 4 Games

You mean all of this is fake? Now that AP has stripped him of Rookie of the Year honors does that mean Brian Orakpo is a front runner for the award?
