Is this a rhetorical question? I don't really know how to answer you

It's not an intentionally rhetorical question. Really, it just seems like the Redskins are struggling to manage their younger players compared to other teams. But I also know how that can be a perception that isn't reality.

Is every team facing the same challenges the Redskins are w/failed drug tests? My assumption is that they are.

Every team has problems, some more than others. It's not specific to just the Redskins

Huh? I'm not really a fan of Goodell, but I certainly don't fault the man for suspending a guy after 3 failed drug tests. As a matter of fact, I'm sure the language for these sort of suspensions is in the new CBA, which the NFLPA agreed to.

But it'll be really interesting come this offseason when they're negotiating with Davis and with Landry (who, and I don't like to speculate, but I'm pretty confident in this info, is one strike away from 3)
for performance enhancing drugs?

Re: Report: Fred Davis, Trent Williams suspended four games

This could be (and probably will be) real trouble. Undoubtedly, it will not be the last time. If possible, I would love to find a decent partner and trade both their asses. If they allowed this to happen, I really hate to count on them in the future......

If anything, you should be kissing his ass. They technically should have been suspended a year for their third infraction.


1st fail = never made public
2nd fail = made public and 4 game suspension
3rd fail = made public and 1 year suspension



These morons got 2 freebies.

Re: Report: Fred Davis, Trent Williams suspended four games

The fact Trent and Fred risked one year suspensions is of real concern. Hard to put much confidence in either guy at this point.

Nonetheless I do think this reflects the lack of leadership at the top of the pyramid.

Re: Report: Fred Davis, Trent Williams suspended four games

Did Dexter Manley, Tony Peters, and more reflect poor leadership on the part of Gibbs?

Did Lawrence Taylor and Quincy Carter reflect poor leadership on the part of Parcells?

Did Santonio Holmes reflect poor leadership on the part of Tomlin?

These guys have to be held accountable for their own actions, I don't see how any one but Davis and Williams are responsible.

Agreed.

You can't hold these guys' hands 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

It's called personal responsibility.

I agree with Smoot, you can't pin this on leadership (owner, GM, or Head Coach). This squarely comes down to a person doing the right thing instead of putting their career in jeopardy.


You have some idiot fans on other forums suggesting the Redskins hire a professional baby sitter to follow these guys around making sure they stay on the up and up. Really? How'd that work out for Dallas and Pacman? If you need to have a babysitter to follow a player around, you don't need him on your team and probably shouldn't be trusted to play in games either.
