A guard in the first round? We have two of the highest paid guards in the league already.

There needs to be better depth at guard so we don't have to resort to people like Larsen, but you don't get depth at guard with a high first round pick.

"Around the beginning of training camp, I made a mistake by taking an Adderall pill without a prescription," the statement read. "This is especially regrettable because, for the past several months, with Coach Schiano's help, I've worked very hard to improve myself -- professionally and personally -- as a player and a man. I am truly sorry to my teammates, coaches and Buccaneers fans, and I'm disappointed in myself. I will work diligently every day of this suspension to stay in top football shape and be ready to help this team in the second half of the season. I have chosen to be immediately accountable for the situation I put myself in, which is why I will not exercise my appeal rights and will begin serving the suspension immediately."
Oh my god. This guy is a freaking idiot. His statement actually makes him look worse. You really can't fix stupid... Get rid of him.
His statement tells us it was a one time thing that he is taking responsibility for and that he regrets doing it. He also talks about taking actions to restore our faith in him. What are you reading that makes him seem worse?

The statement was written by his agent so he can get a better contract in the near future.

4 games for Adderall? I've had it with Roger Goodell. He has to go, this is getting ridiculous.

You're clueless- it's a performance enhancing drug. Rules are rules.
Respect for Morgan -1

That's retarded . Corner or a pure pass rushing DE in the 1st round . Period.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

So Barber is a FS, Gaitor is on IR, and Talib suspended. Wow. Looks like McDonald, Biggers, and Myron Lewis will be getting a LOT of playing time. Gonna get ugly folks.

Yup. What a dumbass Talib is. What sucks is, besides the Giants debacle...he has played fairly well this year.


Until preseason, you stay classy Red Board.

+1 Flying Scorpion. At least we don't have some big time WR's to go up against other than Bowe and even then he's on the Chiefs. I don't agree with the Adderall suspensions at all. First Haden gets one, and now Talib. Go ahead and fine them, but to suspend them for four games is too much.

I do not think Talib was a Dom draft choice.  I thought Freeman's draft was his first

Next years Draft:

1st round: Guard/CB which ever providers the best value
2nd round: Whatever you didn't get in the first round


Where's QB?

-------------------------------------------------------
   

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

This NFL season just continues to get better; Davin Joseph on IR, Adrian Clayborn on IR, Josh Freeman is still nothing more than average at QB and now Aqib Talib is suspended again?! Shoutout to Gerald McCoy for being one of the few consistent bright spots on this team.

Mark Dominik's draft history is looking spotty as best; Talib, Jackson, Freeman, Price, McCoy, Lewis, Benn, Williams, Grimm, Bowers, Clayborn.


Dom's draft suckage stands on its own merit.... no need to dump Talib on him. That was a GruAllen parting gift.

If that is true I may feel slightly different but I think the proof is in the pudding not assumptions. He is still "here" despite multiple issues past and present. Coach said early on Talib was giving his all and going along with the program. I think it is him speaking but at this point now that its basically accepted that it was his agent either position is assuming lol. Just saying.

Best of luck to Aqib and whatever happens after the suspension/season.

Looks like he MIGHT be a Redskin next year, lol.

What is adderall?

All-night rage: Adderall as a party drug

I sat at lunch and listened to a member of the Class of 2009, who asked to remain anonymous, describe his experiences snorting Adderall. I couldn't help but be amused at the mysterious, slightly sketchy nature of this conversation. Many people talk freely about Adderall as a drug used for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD and studying purposes, but getting people to talk about the slightly darker side of Adderall -- using the drug to aid in late-night raging -- is a slightly more difficult task.

Through the grapevine I collected names of students rumored to use Adderall recreationally, but when I asked some of these students for anonymous interviews I was often met with denials. They looked at me as if I was a Safety and Security officer. One student condescendingly told me that he didn't think I even understood what Adderall was.

I finally secured this lunch interview with the sophomore, who told me he occasionally uses Adderall for recreational purposes and has never used it to study.

"I take it to go out or just for fun. I usually do it with some friends," he said.

For him, the appeal of Adderall lies in the energy it provides. "After taking it you feel very energetic, talkative," he said. "If you are in a party atmosphere you will be more engaged in it. You feel in control. It's empowering."
The student finds Adderall especially useful when combined with alcohol. "You don't get drunk and pass out," he said. "You will still be drunk, but lucid."
This is an effect that psychiatrist Mark Reed, director of counseling and development at **CENSORED**'s House, finds dangerous. "I think commonly people take it so they feel high and awake and can drink longer without passing out,"

Reed said. "This is a danger, because passing out is a mechanism to stop people from drinking more when they have had too much. Otherwise people just keep drinking."
To get Adderall, the student buys from friends who have been diagnosed with ADHD and have perscriptions.
"From what I've seen I think there are a lot of kids here who sell it," he said. "I don't usually get it for free. It is usually five dollars a pill, sometimes $15 for 10 milligrams or 20 milligrams. I'll buy five to six pills and then split them between my friends."

To get a more instant high, the sophomore snorts the drug. "I place a dollar bill over the pill and then run a lighter over the bill. That breaks it up," he said. "I then use my old health insurance card and chop it and break it into pieces," he explained, laughing. "I like using my health insurance card. I find it ironic."
He takes about 30 to 70 milligrams of Adderall throughout the course of the night, but not all at once. "Usually I do a line and then half an hour later do another," he said.

According to Reed, **CENSORED**'s House takes precautions when prescribing Adderall. "Students can misplace their prescriptions one time, but if they 'lose' them a second time then we choose whether to let that student continue with Adderall or not," Reed said.

Often, students are prescribed long-acting Adderall, releases the drug slowly. The short-acting version of the drug is more useful for getting high. "With short-acting you get a peak. We often prescribe more long-acting Adderall," Reed said. "It lasts over 12 hours and is time released."

Adderall, a stimulant, is in the same family as cocaine. "People can experience mild highs and euphoria," Reed said. "If someone takes a pound of it they might experience anxiety or cardiac problems."
According to the sophomore, the negative side of Adderall is the crash after the high, and the inability to sleep. "It feels weird when you are coming down off of it," he said. "You feel kind of sick to your stomach. Also I can't sleep after taking it. People call it 'tweaker' sleep, tossing and turning. You know how a person's leg twitches in class sometimes when you fidget? Sometimes my leg will do that when I'm lying in bed."
Although he is one of the only students willing to be interviewed, the sophomore is not alone in his use of Adderall. "A lot of people do Adderall purely for recreation," he said, "I know more than enough people, more than I can count off the top of my head."

Reed also recognizes that such substance abuse occurs at Dartmouth. "It's hard to know the exact numbers out there," Reed said, "but abuse of prescription medications are the highest-growing substance abuse problems."
Despite the negative aspects of Adderall, the sophomore does not plan to stop using it anytime soon. "It's fun," he said. "I'm sort of a happier person after taking it. But having experienced it in a recreational sense I have no desire to use it for studying. I think it is too disorganized an experience for studying."

No one uses Aderall for the same intentions as cocaine, Thats a retarded article. He likely took it so he could stay awake and alert... There isn't any physical stimulation from it
