This is so irritating.

Luckily all four teams we play to start the year are run first oriented. We all know how good (not) Irvin is against the run.

Well the first thing that came to me when I heard about this was, I can't believe another Hawks player got caught taking PED's.

-What's going on in that locker room?

-Is this something that is being passed around on a regular basis?

-Are all of our players taking PED's?

-How many more of our players will be suspended this year do to PED's?

These were some questions that have been bouncing around in my head since this news broke... I sure hope Michael Bennett can make it to the season healthy and stay healthy, If not we might be in a bit of trouble early in the year...

Third player with a connection to PED's, and more specifically Adderall, all on our defense. I'm getting pretty sick of this crap. Its hard to be a proud Seahawk fan with this garbage going on.

I hope he does bounce back from this. I've always been a fan of his. I was raised close to where he came from.

I wonder now that Irvin will be suspended for the first four games, does anyone think the Hawks will make a play for Dwight Freeney?

Will he be with the team in camps and pre-season? Or will he have to have no contact with the team until the 4 games are served?

Sucks but not the 1st or will be the last player to get busted.

Pretty expensive for 4 game rental considering the free agent dollars already at the position. More likely we just let a younger cheaper guy play more snaps.

Gotta love the way he spins it "when adversity comes" like it wasn't a deliberate decision he made. I'm NOT a hater. I liked what I saw last year & am still hoping he turns up huge, but this is brain-dead with his history & reputation.

That was my reaction when this popped up on my iphone. Is it that hard to play without taking something?? Im still a fan of Irvin but damn this getting ridiculous!!
