Maybe, but maybe they believe Crawford can compete. CG was playing at a pretty good level IMO (better than Routt) and probably just kept Crawford off the field.

I like the FO using our drafted talent too.

You have a lot more confidence in Crawford than I do. He looked good in preseason with those INTs but looked like crap against the Cincinatti Bengals receivers. He got burned like Freddy Kruger for a long TD pass. Hopefully, he's been fine tuning his coverage skills in practice since we last saw him against Minnesota.

End of the day, all that matters to me is that Cedric Griffin won't be on the field for us the next four games.
That reminded me of when Marcus Washington was under suspicion with the league, it seemed like nobody knew what was going on if memory serves. Super frustrating.

Just so everyone remembers, Crawford was horrible in coverage when given that chance earlier this year. Maybe he has put it together and can contribute, obviously I hope so.

Re: Cedric Suspended 4 Games

It just popped into my head, but why didn't Griffin just serve the time while he was hurt? Instead of appealing it and dragging it out, why not just serve that suspension during that time he wasn't playing. I imagine that failed drug test came up some time ago.

Maybe it was a longer suspension? But yeah it doesn't make sense. They could have taking his paycheck away while he was hurt.

Is it possible he failed his test while he was hurt and the process was on going while he got healthy?

Very well could be. Like Smoot mentioned, the whole process is so secretive that it's hard to know without the league,team or player commenting and that's very unlikely to happen. It was just a random thought that popped in my head. He very well may have been notified a week or so after he got back. Who really knows.... just random shit popping in my head.

Exactly. Adderall is more socially acceptable than cocaine or steroids so why would the player admit to something worse if he didnt have to. They dont want their mothers, fathers, or children knowing what they were really doing so they say they were taking adderall.

Well i must say as a fellow Skins fan it was a nice thought and damn if it wouldnt have been a better scenario.

That was a pretty rude welcome to the NFL (reg season). Green is a superstar and the other guy is pretty good too, plus the the ginger QB gets it done.

I wouldn't put Crawford on Smith this Sunday, but let him work on the other receivers.

But no, I don't have any evidence/info he'll develop over a four game span. Just seems like we're due to have a homegrown DB become a starter

Re: Cedric Suspended 4 Games

Apparently it doesn't matter whether you have a prescription or not...unless it is league approved.

It'll likely be DJ Johnson on Smith.
