Also, since they are appealing the suspensions they are allowed to play until it is resolved.

Which could be a good thing or bad thing. If it takes a while and we end up in the playoffs they could be suspended for those games which wouldn't be ideal. But the bright side to the appeal is that they could get cleared of anything.

I am guessing either adderall or some type of creatine i believe what ended up getting Guy in trouble was some type of Cold Medicine.

I'd like to care, but I'm not really all that upset about it. They aren't the first, last, or only players to get hit with this. My guess is they probably heard about some new supplement that works like a friggin charm and started using it without getting proper knowledge about what was in it. I don't care about the "moral" aspect of it. If they knowingly took something to give themselves an advantage, then that's fine by me. I would do it, too. I basically said my piece about this in the Winston Guy thread, so I won't repeat all of it here, but I will add that after watching the league deteriorate in quality over the last decade plus in terms of on-field product, rules, officiating, enforcement, etc. I don't see any reason to get mad about this. It's a business, a cutthroat one at that, whatever edge is needed to stay ahead is fine by me. The league only seems to care about the business side the game, that's why the rules have reflected a dramatic shift towards legislating the physicality out of the game. I refuse to get mad at players for doing whatever they have to do put themselves in a position to take advantage of the lucrative finances involved. I just wish our guys would be a little smarter about how they are going about this.

Yep its Adderall according to NFL site.

Both players are accused of taking Adderall and are appealing the potential suspensions, according to a source with knowledge of the ruling.

Tired? Give your body and mind a boost with Adderall, lol. Seems this is becoming quite the drug du jour in the NFL lately. I'm okay with guys taking this kind of stuff to keep themselves going, but it makes me wonder about the intelligence of these two, IF they knowingly took something that so many other players have gotten caught doing. Who knows what they thought it was though. I kinda wish our guys would get caught doing something extraordinary like blood doping or messing with genetics, not the same ol' crap all these other guys are getting busted for. It shows a lack of creativity, IMO.

Isn't better performance in order to cash in with a monster new contract good enough?

Adderall...wow....basically zero advantage to playing football when on adderall. If anything, it's help them focus and study better. This is BS. I'm sick of the league suspending guys over stupid crap like adderall. Cmon. This is a big blow for us, but it doesn't take away our playoff hopes IMO. It certainly doesn't help but I think we still got some guys who can step up. We still got Kam and Earl back there. It's not like our defense was doing that great anyways lately. Not too worried especially with 3 gamea at home and the Bills game being in Toronto and it's against the Bills.

Ya, I think the leagues policies are a little out of control myself. This doesn't take away our playoff chances, todays loss sure did though. Coming out of the bye week, we didn't look like a team ready to make the playoffs. I believed after the game ended and before these possible suspensions were announced, that our playoff chances died with this game. I still believe it. I know a bunch of the teams around us lost, too, but we looked like shyte today, not worthy of a playoff berth.

Maybe our whole D should have hit the Adderall at the beginning of the 4th quarter cuz they lost focus and got lit up. I don't really buy the thought that they were gassed because they had a huge amount of rest from the late 2nd quarter through the start of the 4th quarter. If conditioning was an issue, then that needs to be addressed with the training staff. It wasn't overly hot and they weren't on the field an excessive amount of time, IMO, they should have had plenty left in the tank, relatively speaking Confused

Disappointed in anyone who is now chalking up this season. We have 5 games left guys and have the wild card in our hands. All the other teams lost today too. We have plenty of time left and some favorable match ups. Get your heads up and stay positive. We are so close to being 11-0 its insane.

Actually it acts sort of like speed Sherman would have more energy.
