Plenty of players test positive for performance enhancing drugs.  But the Seahawks definitely are in the midst of a troubling trend.

As pointed out by Eric D. Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune, defensive end Bruce Irvin has become the sixth Seahawks player to test positive for performance enhancing drugs since 2011.

The others are cornerback Brandon Browner, safety Winston Guy, offensive lineman John Moffitt, offensive lineman Allen Barbre, and cornerback Richard Sherman.

Sherman’s suspension was overturned on appeal, based on irregularities with the sample-collection process.  Officially, then, he tested positive but the league determined that he did not violate the PED policy.

Irvin’s suspension also proves that, no matter how good a team looks on paper in May, plenty of things can happen to derail what appears to be a certain Super Bowl run.

Wow!  Wasnt Moffit coached by the current Bucs OL coach?  Probably why Wisconsin always had a good OL.

Carrol has a history of looking the other way for violations. But I doubt there is drug use in his vicinity, he just turns a blind eye to the obvious users if they are producing as do most coaches of elite athletes

This has more to do with the NFL as a whole than Carrol. No ever wonders how an athlete can limp to the locker room during a game and come like nothing happened? I am sure they are giving them something other than vitamins. That is the real issue folks.

To implicate coaches is unfair. That said, Carroll has earned his greasy reputation without help from anyone.
