JACKSON SUSPENDED FOR SEASON

The NFL has suspended S Tanard Jackson for rest of the 2010 season. Jackson had another violation of the substance abuse policy.
The NFL has suspended Buccaneers safety Tanard Jackson for the rest of the 2010 season and he is suspended indefinitely for another violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. Jackson's suspension begins immediately, and he is eligible to apply for reinstatement 60 days before September 22, 2011. Jackson was suspended for the first four games of the 2009 season for violating the league's policy on substance abuse.

Due to Jackson being suspended at this time, Jackson will not incur a year of service time and he will not be a free agent after this season. Jackson had been in the final year of a four-year contract, but his suspension will make him under contract with the Buccaneers for the 2011 season. Bucs general manager Mark Dominik released this official statement.

“Tanard is a talented young man whom we hope is able to use this year to put his troubles behind him and ultimately return a strong man and player,” said Dominik. “It’s up to Tanard whether the team and our fans eventually realize his considerable promise.”

Jackson was a fourth-round pick of the Buccaneers in the 2007 NFL Draft. He has been the starter at free safety since his first game as a rookie. Last season in 12 games Jackson recorded 85 tackles, five interceptions, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. In two games this season Jackson recorded 13 tackles with two tackles for a loss and one fumble recovery.

Tampa Bay has safeties Sabby Piscitelli, Cody Grimm, and Corey Lynch in contention to replace Jackson as the starter at free safety. Piscitelli is the most experienced backup and started all 16 games last season at strong safety. He was replaced as the starter this year by free agent addition Sean Jones. In 2009 Piscitelli had 91 tackles with one tackle for a loss, two interceptions, and four passes defensed. Grimm is a rookie seventh-round pick out of Virginia Tech. Lynch is in his second NFL season and last year had one tackle on defense with one quarterback pressure and one pass defensed for the Buccaneers. The Bucs kept five safeties on their final 53-man roster, and due to Jackson's suspension they will likely be down to the standard four safeties. Because of Tampa Bay's loss of Jackson they will be able to add another player to the 53-man roster.

"I was happy that we did have five safeties that did play well this preseason and we will just move forward," said Dominik. "Talking to [head coach Raheem] Morris, obviously we have a position open. He is going to take the next few days to determine who is going to be the starter going forward."

    Keep him on, don't keep him on, he'll never play another down for this team anyway. He blew the opportunity to earn millions and now he has no money coming in and with the potential lockout next year, he will be in sad financial shape.....maybe he goes to the CFL or something in the interim?
  • avatar


    Well, this sucks. It'll be interesting to see if the Bucs keep Tanard on the roster. He's not going to be eligible for free agency so the Bucs will be hold all the cards. Either way, T Jax can kiss any hope of a contract worthy of his talents good-bye. Looks like we're drafting a safety again next year.
  • avatar

    Tanard Jackson was one of the best and hardest hitting Safeties in the league. Having said that; Corey Lynch is the man. Let Lynch start. It is his destiny. (has nothing to do with his name) he made a splash last year in training camp with the Bengals and showed flashes of brilliance this yr also in Tampa! He is a smart player and is constantly making plays. Sabby consistantly makes poor decisions, and is not ready. Hopefully the Bucs go with the best guy at that position...
  • avatar


    not that I am on a witch hunt or anything, but I hope TJ isn't hanging out with a lot of teammates and prefers his own circle of losers. I'd hate to find out that some of our other starters are constantly hanging with him. Nevertheless, I say keep him on the team. He is a good talent who could be great and after next season we will have him cheap - if he is even around.
  • avatar

    TWO THINGS: 1. Stop defending pot smoking athletes. It is not about whether pot should be legal or not, because right now it is not. It is about that athlete not following the rules and being very selfish towards his teammates. He let every one of them down and they know it. 2.The more I think about it I think the following happens: Lynch gets the start. IF it weren’t for the impending suspension (that the Bucs obviously knew about when they kept 5 safeties and leaked some “false” info about a TJax suspension), Sabby probaly would not have made the squad to begin with. Lynch starts now and they will see how it goes. In the meantime, I think there is a strong possibility that Barber cross trains to safety for the long term. He could extend his career by 2-3 more years if he does and the Bucs have better depth at CB than Safety. I would not be surprised if Barber is playing safety halfway through the year and Biggers is starting at CB alongside Talib with Lewis or Mack as the nickel.

    How unprofessional, putting yourself before your teams. What happen to Unite & Conquer JACKSON
  • avatar

    The number of comments defending pot, etc speaks loudly to the intelignnce of the writers. It's not about pot, stupid it's about rules. When an employer pays a person thousands of dollars to do a job he has a right to expect that person to follow a few simlpe rules. How many times should a person get knocked down before he understands that? More importantly how many times should an employer be expected to try again, and finally, tell me what other industry gives a person a second chance after breaking the rules.

    Tanard was given a second chance when the Bucs did not cut him after the last suspension. He has blown that opportunity big time and selfishly let his team down. He should be cut as an example to the rest of the team that you must put your team first or else. We don't need to trade for another safety or pick up one that has been cut. I watched Lynch excel in the preseason at safety and he has earned the opportunity now to show that he can not only step up to the free safety position but he can one day be an all pro like another Lynch we all love and admire. Anyone who says he doesn't have the speed hasn't been watching him block kicks ever since he made the Bucs. Sorry Sabby got his opportunity and he blew it terribly last year. Now it should be Lynch's opportunity!!! The slot left open by Tanard's departure should be used to bring in the very best guard prospect or veteran we can find, and they need to be 320 pounds minimum. Zutah is best suited as a center backup and does not have the strength or bulk to push defenders back at the line of scrimmage as a guard. Grimm should be groomed as our future strong safety.

    It's "PR Pot Talk" ladies and gentleman. wnb0395, please pick another venue for your little legalization advocacy speeches.

    Nowhere in my blog do I talk about leagalization. Obviously you didnt read it. All I said is 1) I dont want to hear the excuss of addiction from Tanard because its not addicting. 2) Tanard is stupid for putting his job in jepordy when there are other legal options. He should have put his team first. I dont smoke anymore so I could care less if its legal or not.
  • avatar


    First off weed is not addicting. I smoked daily for 16 years. 5 months ago I was put on probation and had to stop. I quite cold turkey no problem. My wife still smokes. She smokes in the same room as me and I never jones for it. The only withdraw I had for the first 2 weeks was I had problems sleeping at night. Second, smoking weed doesnt lead to other drugs. Its the people you associate with that leads to other drugs. Yes, smoking pot might have you hanging with the wrong people but it doesnt make you want to do other drugs. I havent done another drug beside pot for over 10 years. I rarely even drink. Maybe once a month I will have a drink. Last, even if you think you gotta be high all the time, there are other legal ways to do so. A month ago i was back in Tampa and a friend of mine turned me on to something you guys sell in gas stations called Incense. Incense is a chemical compound developed by a scientist in germany in 2002 that mimics the effects of THC. It attacks the same parts of the brian, the canibal receptors without any THC. They spray this chemical on incense and you get the same effect as smoking pot but its legal. The best part is there is no THC so it doesnt show up on drug test. I have used incense multiple times in the last month and took 2 drug tests for probation and passed both. Why anyone would jepordise thier Job and freedom when there are legal ways around it is beyond me. So for that Tanard you are an idiot. Hopefully one of our rookie safties will step up for us. Go bucs

    A good Replacement for T-Jack in the draft would be Rahim Moore from UCLA. He is a late first to early second round prospect. Last season he had 45 Tackles, and 10 INT'S. This season he already got 17 Tackles and1 INT.
  • avatar

    I do not see them taking a safety in the first 2-3 rounds unless there is a MAJOR standout. They still need a DE 1st followed by some O-Line help (mostly LG) and then RB. Of course Blount and Huggins could pan out and make drafting a RB further down the list but right now, even with TJax gone, I think Safety is probably 4th on the pressing needs in the draft list.
  • avatar

    All this time I was worried about Talib, and it was Jackson who was getting stoned. I hope this is a wake up call for the rest of the Team.
  • avatar

    This makes me sick. This season was starting to look hopeful. crap. Now safety is up in the air. He got another chance and he pulls this ? A fantastic opportunity from an emerging player who was a steal in the 4th round, and now he will be lucky to play again in the NFL.
  • avatar

    I smoke two joints in the morning, I smoke two joints at night I smoke two joints in the afternoon, it makes me feel alright I smoke two joints in time of peace, and two in time of war I smoke two joints before I smoke two joints, and then I smoke two more... GOOD BYE, TANARD. HAVE FUN!

    Quote from Larrybrownsports.com http://network.yardbarker.com/nfl/article_external/tanard_jackson_suspended_indefinitely_for_substance_abuse_likely_weed/3278583 "So what was the cause of the suspension, or rather, what was he doing that violated the substance abuse policy? Nick Wright of 610 Sports in Kansas City explained on twitter, “For those that think marijuana isn’t addicting, I refer you to Tanard Jackson… He’s my friend, but has had a problem with weed for years.” We joked that it would be Cheech & Chong time for NFL players after the year once the CBA expired because they would no longer be subjected to drug testing. It’s sad that someone couldn’t lay off the stuff despite knowing he would be tested and that it would knock him out for the year if he were caught. Truly sad."

    The Bucs fans are singing an old Ink Spots tune in unison "Into each life some rain must fall.......but honeychild......too much is falling in mine." I hope the rest of the team can pick up the slack and carry on their positive start of 2010. GO BUCS !!!!!
  • avatar

    Man I am so friggin disappointed and amidst all of the positive that is happening for the team right now. Tanard had so much promise and talent but his lack of character led him to this point. I think that this week we will be ok because we are playing a QB-less team but there after we must get some help because Sabby is simply unsuited to be a starter. I guess I know what we will be drafting high next year...
  • avatar

    Smoking pot should not be part of the NFL's substance abuse policy; its not a PED or a dangerous drug. Braylen Edwards could have killed himself, the two players with him, or anyone else while driving drunk in New York. This archaic standard on marijiana has got to go. I agree whole-heartedly that Tanard is an idiot and really took the "wind outta my sails" with this banishment. However, these men are putting their bodies on the line every play. Not only does smoking help regulate someone's pyschological well-being, but it also has a painkilling effect that can help these athletes recover. Now, I'm not saying that smoking will promote a players effectiveness, but I feel we mis-judge Tanard. Its really not that big of a deal, yet everyone is ready to write him off... I feel for T-Jack. He's an idiot and a victim.

    hedgeball70, every pot smoker chances to going another drug is extrememly high. There are always exceptions. Also I am willing to go out here and state that he failed the test not just for potbut also for other chemicals because the quality of pot now is much different thasn 30-40 years ago. What is so funny to me is when pot smokers think it no big deal and no one notices it hat they are users. Well they are so wrong, you always can smell it on them and see it in their pupils. Jackson career is over. He can't ask to be reinstatde until after mid september and he can't participate in any team activities so that season is also shot. By then he will be almost two seasons out of the leaque. Lets move past Tananrd Jackson. I wish him the best. It's time for him to start a new life.
  • avatar

    I guess 4 games last year wasnt enough to keep T-Jack from doing it again. Something tells me a 1 year suspension won't work either. Hopefully he had a good financial advisor! Bucs HAVE to cut this kid! Way to kill the momentum of going 2-0! Thanks T-Jack... you let everyone down! Now here's where the TEAM CAPTAINS prove their worth OFF the field. Keep this locker room together. Use this mistake as an example of what NOT to do and inspire this TEAM to go out and win a game! Getting to the bye week at 3-0 will carry this team to new heights this year, especially after doing it when NO ONE thought you could! GO BUCS!
  • avatar


    Pardon my french,but f**k me !!!-T-Jack WAS one of the guys I looked forward to watching on Sundays-now gone in a puff of smoke !! He is a talented footballer but his lack of common sense has led to this...PUFF,PUFF-GAVE up on his team and his career...What a bummer.. Go Lynch !-WHO out there doesnt like the sound of a guy with the name Lynch at safety ?!-Remember what happened last time !!
  • avatar

    Holy crap, didn't see this one coming (guess I'm not the cynic I thought I was). Well, it takes exception athleticism, ability, training, and the WILLPOWER to keep the pot smoking to a minimum (ie, off-season, steering clear of potential urine testing and REGULAR urine testing after your first hot test). He could come back, in theory, but there's no room for him on THIS team. My guess is that if he's football ready in a year, the Bucs try to trade him.
  • avatar

    gotta bring back FLIP NOW.

    Dear T Jack, You just saw your career go up in smoke. AMF.

    P.O.S.

    Sabbys strength was always free safety, just could not get time there because of Tanard. Sabby will start at free and I think he will do well there. We have plenty of backups at strong safety. Might hurt us with Pittsburg, but Sabby will grow into this postion and show us what we thought he was when we drafted him. If he is struggles he will not be on the team next year. Sabby.....this is your chance, don't screw it up! Go BUCs Tanard, don't let the door hit you in the *censored* on the way out, No way your a Buc next year. BYE BYE. Let me know if you need to sell off some of your toys to make your mortgage payment..........
  • avatar

    How can someone let down their entire team? I mean were 2-0.. I'm even starting to like Rah a little.. Everything is going so good and one selfish *censored* has to ruin it for everyone. How can someone be that weak.?
  • avatar

    Man this is a big loss for the team this year, however we still have other safties on board. I think that we start of with either Lynch or Sabby. Sabby has the speed to be great and hopefully he's learned from last year. This is a new year and hopefully he can have a better year cause I honestly don't think he can be any worse than last year. Our safties will now be targeted so it will be interesting to see how they fare. I still believe in the group we have back there. Cody Grimm could turn out to be exeptional at strong safey and maybe put Sean Jones at free saftey. Cody Grimm is probably the smartest player at our saftey postion. As far as T Jack goes, I hope he can look back at this and ACTUALLY learn from his mistake. This guy has so much talent and has been our best saftey for the past 3 years even with him missing last years first 4 games. It's a shame to lose a guy who had so much promise this year. Marijuana prolly was the cause, but man smoke that *censored* after the season and then QUIT 2 months before any team practices or activities start. I hope Jackson can come back next year and not lose himself over this event that he caused himself. He will have one last shot with us next year we shall see how that turns out, but the organizaton will definitely be looking for a safey via free agency or next years draft picks 1-3... ANYWAYS BUCS ARE F'N 2-0!!! GO BUCS N RAYS Will be at the the home game this Sunday's against the steelers cheering us to a big win. 3-0 here we come. LOL hope Sandwich is playin!!
  • avatar


    how can he do that to the bucs and the fans!!!!!
  • avatar


    That's too bad for the defense. It is true, drug addiction is a real illness. But I still feel that it's a very selfish act on his part. Of course, now the Bucs will have this built-in excuse about how good their defense 'could have been' if only we had TJ there all season. Suck it up - players get lost to injury all the time, so we have to treat it as such. It just so happens that he brought this on himself with his own stupid decisions.
  • avatar

    What can you say except "idiot."
  • avatar


    Pot! Are you f ing kidding me! There's no physical withdrawal at all! He made his decision for himself but how did he think he could honestly get away with it! This could be a crippling blow to our defense. Jones isn't consistently taking the correct angles and scabby scares the hell out of me. Myron's a vandy grad so maybe he could learn fs in a week? Hamlin? I've been on board with dom's approach but now might be a good idea to make a trade on the kellen winslow level. There's got to be someone out there we can get for a 2 and a 5. Please tell me the front office is working on it, it's too pivotal to ignore
  • avatar


    buc1932, It's never just pot; it's always about the bigger drug. So many young people think they can deal with just pot. The drug business knows better. I guarantee you that Tanard Jackson failed more than just a pot test. When will the young wake up and realize that any drug is just bad news?
  • avatar

    Our own Ricky Williams…sigh
  • avatar


    Wow - from being on such a high at being at 2-0 and thinking we had the NFL at our feet in 3 years time.... We need to take a stand and never allow this addict to play for our Bucs again. Only idiots allow drugs to take over their lives - its all the more frustrating to see someone with the world at their feet succomb. Did he not want to emulate John at the safety position? Did he not want to look back in ten years time and say i partly emulated the Lynch/Sapp/Brooks era? Clearly not. Please dont shirt up for us again.
  • avatar

    Forget T-Jack. This will be a blessing in disguise. Corey Lynch is motivated, talented, and will fit right in.
  • avatar


    Wow, That sucks. Oh well we can overcome this. We have other players that WILL step up and play. One player is not the end of the world. Let's pull together and keep the winning streak going. Weeding (sic) out the bad seed may be good in the long run. GO BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! See you in Cincy, well not you Tanard dang it
  • avatar


    Ken Hamlin just got released by the Ravens today. I hope Dominik is on the phone with his agent as we speak. He was a pro bowler just two seasons ago. I'd bring him in, let Grimm or Lynch start while he learns our system, and then if he beats out those two guys he gets the nod. If not, at least we have a capable veteran as insurance.
  • avatar


    Tanard Jackson to me is now history. You had your chance more than once and the drug world won once again. Folks we have to forget about Jackson for his own good. It sounds tough, but he has a huge drug problem and it will not go away. It takes a special strength to overcome this and I doubt he has it. Look how selfish all of this has been so far; it's all about Tanard Jackson in his mind So we move on. We must. My family is so loaded with this same thing; drugs! Lets still keep focused; we can beat the Steelers because they do not have a legit QB. Our Center is my concern, not at Safety for this game. How is Faine? Where is Stovall? Tanard Jackson; you are an idiot and a drug addict. Stop associating with anybody in Tampa Bay area and get away from here. It's time for you to start a new life without football involved because this seems to be where the drug people have your *censored*. I hate drugs and your low life friend who make money on it; from the maker, the distributor, the dealer, the muler's, the attorney's, and most of the others who have sold out their Souls for the greed of money and the drug itself. Go Bucs! Make a statement! No drugs with our team; no breaks. We play honest drug free football!
  • avatar


    I hope they go with Corey Lynch
  • avatar


    i believe there was a rumor about three weeks or so about this ,but everyone thought it was a joke, i bet someone knew, hamlin just got release antogwe in free agency if he is one next year, good thing i didn't buy his jersey
  • avatar


    This SUCKS. REALLY Tanard? REALLY? Look...if you wanna be a pothead, more power to you. But BE A SMART ONE. Play your 10 years in the NFL CLEAN...then retire, buy a damn mansion in AMSTERDAM and toke like there's no tomorrow. It's LEGAL there. But dude, EARN YOUR RETIREMENT FIRST! As far as I'm concerned, you blew it...and blew it BIG TIME. I hope The Bucs kick you to the curb. "You can't fix stupid". No truer words were ever spoken. Welcome to the starting rotation Mr.Corey Lynch.
  • avatar

    we should suspend players for drinking alcohol too because it is a much more powerful drug then marijuana....but well never do that because alcohol is ok in this country because it doesn't turn you into a violent, dangerous, wreckless person that rapes girls at nightclubs and such...i feel for you t-jack one day people will realize in this country that marijauna is not nearly as bad as it's spun off to be....but until then drink your sorrows away and go out driving and kill some people that's totally acceptable cause you were only "drunk" dude
  • avatar


    Huge blow to our defense, without a doubt. Now our safeties are an obvious weakness. Before this, all four units on the defense were relatively strong: CB, S, LB, DL. Now you can scratch safety off that list. Our safeties will be targeted relentlessly now, until they prove to opposing teams that they aren't worth targeting. Damn.
  • avatar


    If those ignorant crooks on capital hill would just legalize it this wouldn't be a problem.
  • avatar

    WOW..... Thats all I got to say WOW. We had a real shot this year and this ignorant self-fish piece of *censored* let his team down. I would try Mryon Lewis at FS, he got good coverage skills and is not bad against the run.
  • avatar


    Some people just cant break free of addiction in their natural environment. Take this year and use it to get better Tanard. Somebody call Dr Drew!
  • avatar

    What did he actually do? Steroids? If it wasn't steroids, what the hell was it? He was a beast in the 2nd half vs the run last week. Sheesh, this might really blow the season.
  • avatar


    Put Ronde back there and start EJ. That would be better than Sabby. Ronde may add a couple years to his career.
  • avatar

    No doubt the steelers and every other team will prepare for the bucs differently now. The Bucs might as well replace the number 21 with a giant target sign on gamedays from here on out.
  • avatar

    Sabby can you please start smoking weed so we don't have to see you in there either
  • avatar

    You dumb dumb dumb idiot! While we may not have all the details this shows you, the team cannot have a great start without getting to High on themselves!
  • avatar

    Tanard must be hooked on crack or something... he just took the meaning of loser to a whole new level. what a WASTE of talent!!!!!!!!!!
  • avatar

    I can't believe this. Really guy, really? How could u let us down like that? Glad we did keep five safeties ad the staff and brass prob kept 5 because they knew something and not just because of strong play. Hopefully, this is grimm's time tp step up cause i just dont believe in Sabby. Jones u also better step it the F*** up. time to shine now fellas or else...(see, last season)
  • avatar

    Way to let your fans,city,team and family down Tanard Jackson weed above football. The grass on the field isn't good enough i guess. Thank You from your fan
  • avatar


    lol i hope that weed or steriods was woth the MILLIONS he just cost himself. Unbelievable.
  • avatar

    What a freaking selfish jerk-face. I hope it was worth it TJ. You let down millions of people with your self-center actions. I know about just about anyone would jump to be in the position you were in and you blew it, more than once. I was disappointed in Sabby, but at least he didn't screw his team with selfish actions. Here is your chance to prove yourself Sabby... Good luck.
  • avatar


    Bad break for the team. Tanard is not a team player. Maybe the substance abuse had something to do with the bad angles he was taking in pass coverage. I don't remember this being a problem in the past. I think you leave Jones at strong safety and give Piscatelli a shot at free safety. You almost have to give Myron Lewis a shot too. Let those two fight it out for the position. Now it's time for Sabby to show the team that they made a mistake by demoting him. Time to put up and shut up. We'll see how the team handles this unexpected problem. GO BUCS !!!!!
  • avatar


    Un....%*#&ing...believable. The older I get the more true the statement "If it's not one thing it's another" becomes. What a shame. If the 4 game suspension and having to apologize in front of the team wasn't enough of a wake up call what will be...jail time? Time for the team to move on unfortunately. When he comes back next year we'll never be able to depend on him again as anything more than a backup with a minimal contract. I hope Dominik can swing some more 4th round magic on a FS because the first 3 rounds are already spoken for. I like Jones, Grimm and Lynch but none of them are fast enough for FS. Sabby is fast enough, but I still don't like him as a player.
  • avatar

    Thanks Bro!
  • avatar


    Yeah they better try out Myron Lewis at the FS. Tanard is a knucklehead!
  • avatar


    I guess this was the reason that the Bucs kept 5 safeties. I have to believe they must have had some whiff of this. Damn, dirty shame because Jackson had Pro Bowl ability. That's the loss of two potential Pro Bowl players in two years (Sears last season, Jackson this season). Can't believe that the Bucs will keep him next season after the suspension lifts and actually since it's indefinite, it could go longer than a year. I hope they give Corey Lynch serious consideration for his spot.
  • avatar


    Free safety just became a position of need come next year's draft (assuming there is one). Unless Tanard has a really good explanation for this, I would cut ties now because he should have learned his lesson after last year's 4 games.
  • avatar


    Wow...he is that guy...we really might have a problem in the middle now...lucky for us we are not facing a strong passer in Batch this week...give us the bye to figure it out...sad...
  • avatar


    Wow. What a F###ing moron. Later dude. Was a big a fan, now I hope I never see your dumb *censored* in a Bucs unifrom again. Thanks for letting your teams and fans down because you can't stop smoking weed. Idiot. Enjoy your mediocre life of working 9-5 just to get by, cause you just threw away your NFL career for a joint. So what happens now? Jones slides over to FS and Sabby, Lynch, Grimm compete for the starting SS spot? I'd honestly like to see Myron Lewis get a shot at FS. I think he is better suited to be a FS than a CB.
  • avatar


    You've got to be kidding me.......just when hope was coming back lol. Ok Sabby.....time to prove you're not a ST player.
  • avatar


    WTF did he do now? 4 games wasnt enough for him? What a freaking retard!
  • avatar


    Great, now they will need to address this in the draft
  • avatar


    Holy s****. Mother******. I want to puke
  • avatar


    It looks good now that we kept 5 safeties on the team but at the same time this makes me absolutely sick to my stomach and I just hope that we can find a way to have someone else step up and make some plays. I don't care who it is but someone needs to step up. Go Bucs!
  • avatar


    4 games last year and now a whole year this year...wow I guess its hard to learn a lesson for him. Big blow for the team. Very disappointed.
  • avatar

    on a positive note, he will still be under contract for another season, and his substance abuse history will lower his market value and make him more likely to resign with the Bucs when he does hit free agency.
  • avatar


    This makes me sick to my stomach. Just as we were gaining some serious momentum, one of our top players is suspended? Welp, time for somebody else to step up at safety. Let us just hope its not Sabby.
  • avatar

    read all the comments and I'm as extremely ticked off and frustrated as all of you. Good grief, maybe somebody will step up in his place.
  • avatar

    Why are ticked off at the people here? The ones defending pot, I can understand being ticked at them. People are just frustrated because of a young promising team and this guy let everyone down. The bottom line is I think Lynch steps up, not Sabby and I think Barber crosses over to Safety before the end of the year unless Lynch just shines.
