Recommended Posts

At this point in the season is IR a done for year thing? Or is he eligible to come back for the postseason?

At least it's not a substance "abuse" issue this time.

No, but I'll say this until the very end of his career - assuming it's not just weed he's abused, he's not in his late 20's, he's more like in his late 30's physiologically.  I'm not surprised he's more injury-prone now (the knee injury itself is bad luck, but the recovery time is probably a lot longer than in a "clean" athlete who's 27-28).

I don't know if there is any validity to that. Sure if he was using crack or meth and his body was deteriorating I'd agree but weed, codeine, cocaine and such I don't think it would factor much. He could always take HGH to improve his recovery time if it did.

Except he’s in the program perpetually now.  No chance they wouldn’t find it.  And I rule nothing out (including alcohol btw).  It’s not like he’s earned the benefit of the doubt.

Well then, OK. I take back any criticism of the Sanu trade.

I wonder what's up with Gordon, long before the knee injury it was apparent he wasn't interested in football this year. Now he wants to sign with a new team? So is he not interested in football, or just not interested in the Patriots?

Something weird is going on.
