Do what the good teams do, cut him.

 

So sick and tired of this crap.

Well we did insist he "bulk up".  It's one thing for an offensive lineman to "bulk up" by pouring Crisco on his Wheaties, but OLB-turned-DEs need more than lard in their tanks.  On the bright side, he'll be rested and ready.

Good teams make tough decisions. Sure, you don't want to lose good players, but the change in culture needs to start somewhere.

I agree with that. While I don't mean to literally cut either, I wish our team had developed some sort of additional consequences to these players. If they cut Murphy and not williams, then they are simply hypocrites.

Are they? Trent Williams is quite possibly the best LT in the game. Trent murphy is not that.  You keep the players that help you win. You cut ties when yhe negatives outweigh the positives.  Smoking weed wasn't helping trent W.perform better (unless you go the pain relief argument route which I'm not) but Trent Murphy very well may have seen his bump in production related to P.E.D. use. Very different.

Yes. They would be complete hypocrites. 

 

You are using a players ability to validate the violation of a principle 

 

But hypocrites with a desire to win. 

 

Saying your team has a policy but then only applying it to certain team members is hypocrisy in the name of winning ball games. And that, folks, is today's NFL.

He got caught doing what so many others do in the NFL.

He cheated, tried to gain an edge. Got caught. I'd say let's see how he performs after the suspension before we cut the guy. He's a solid player.

To be clear, I didn't mean we should actually cut these guys. Just that if they only

apploed the rule to one, then that's not right

Like they say, the best ability is availability. You're not helping the team missing 4 games.

Yeah, that argument makes Murphy look better.  He was trying to help his team, but Williams was selfishly getting high.

Maybe that's what they did when they separated from S&C coach Mike Smith...

Pure guess here.

Nobody says that and just because it rhymes doesn't make it true.

 

Heck, I'm available. I have no ability.

Not different at all. Very much the same.Both instances involve the use of a banned aubstance.

Rules are rules and Williams is a repeat offender we are fortunate that in Murphys case it did not happen in the middle of a season and we have some time to prepare.

So you figure he's been juicing his entire career, not just during the season they asked him to quickly bulk up to 290, then quickly lose all that and get faster again?
