Ced Griffin suspended....

One of many experimental iterations ...

Ugh. Griffin was starting to play well - or well enough to show he had some potential. Missing 4 games is going to hurt him; missing them because he broke league rules is inexcusable, especially when the team is currently trying to make a playoff/division title run.

Apparently it's been going on through the season. The appeals process has already been completed, punishment is final.

The dude has two reconstructed knees, I'd be willing to bet he was using growth hormone the same way Santana was using it, to treat his injuries. Its a shame they disallow it, because used responsibly it can really help players get back on the field.

More like: "I get burnt but I have super long arms to compensate."

It's always a roller coaster when you're a Skins fan.

I told you guys last week SOMEONE was gonna get suspended BEFORE the game.... I was wrong. Torrey Smith just got a chub. These players are just silly. PED suspensions should be grounds for termination and forfeiture of all guaranteed $. This would ensure a.) that the NFL gets the test right and b.) that the player has extra incentives not to do it. The punishment just does nothing for the team at all. Another 2012 FA failure, just as we needed bodies, no wonder the texans snapped up rout today.

That's an ADHD med right? Sucks but maybe time for someone else to shine.

Yeah, I'm failing to see the downside here. Not glad he's hurt, but Hall missing games can't possibly be a bad thing.
Well...besides the fact that Hall sucks, he is a warm body. We're lacking those in the secondary lately, especially with Ced Griffin now suspended. I mean, if you're comfortable with Richard Crawford playing 60 snaps, then I guess we're fine....
