      The Redskins have opened their 2019 season with two losses. Both against Divisional foes. Now they get to close out Week 3 at home on Monday Night against the visiting 1-1 Chicago Bears. The Bears don't have much of an offense but seem to have what may be an elite defense.
       
      On the flip side, the Redskins have a developing passing attack and a disastrous defense. The Redskins haven't had a Defense this vanilla since Mike Nolan received his ice cream. Oh, and the Redskins already have more guys on IR then any other team this season. 
       
      Will the Redskins finally put one in the win column? 
       
      As usual, poll closes at kickoff. Go vote!

Honestly, I couldn't care less about what Kuzy does off the ice.

He's got a family now.  Were he just a single guy going out having fun... well I don't personally condone cocaine, but whatever.  But he's got a wife and daughter now; he needs to be more responsible for them if not himself.

He can't be suspended by the Caps or NHL.  He's good in that regard.

 

That being said, coke use around the league is more common than a lot of people think.  And it's been that way FOREVER.  The stories I've heard....LOL

 

Honestly, I couldn't care less about what Kuzy does off the ice.  Folks are quick to point out the down season he had this year and make the connection to his coke usage.  Just remember, there's probably a good chance he was using booger sugar during the cup run when he was on fire. 

 

He's dumb for getting caught seeing as though the drug SHOULD be out of his system within a few days.  If he gets help, great...if he cuts back, great as well.  Just do what you need to do to get yourself ready for the upcoming season. 

 

*Coke is NOT a banned substance in the NHL...which is why there is such high usage amongst MANY of the players. 

Coke use in general is very common these days, that **** is everywhere.

I mean, you gotta keep that same energy for parents who go out and get drunk at bars, concerts, other outings etc. while their kids have sitters.  Like I said, I really don't care what he does off the ice.  If it's a full-blown addiction, by all means, get help...but if he was careless w/ recreational use, then he needs to smarten up.

Yeah, really. Thank God he didn't get suspended by the NHL, but the kid is playing with fire. Needs to clean up his act.

I think that’s a cop out.  I doubt the Coke effected his play at all.

 

The actual effects of the drug probably didn’t but his overall lack of focus and dedication definitely did. The drugs are associated with that but probably not the cause of it.

Not saying any of this is true, but I could easily see him having a bender one night and staying up all night, maybe getting a few hours of sleep (if that) and then being underwhelming in game because he's tired as ****.  

 

He's young and dumb as everyone is at that age so hopefully he can clean it up.  At that age you feel invincible and I'm sure being an NHL star makes you feel that way even more.

 

Again, not saying there is definitely a connection, but it seems reasonable.

But there's no evidence to suggest that he wasn't using coke during the cup run when he was on fire....We've literally seen him play at a level higher than everyone else on the ice and be "meh" within a span of 15/16 months.

Just like I said in the above quote, there's literally no reason to not believe he wasn't using prior to coke photo and getting busted recently.  Coke is NOT a banned substance in the league and there are numerous guys on every roster who use it recreationally.

Joe B and Locker or death

So you'd rather die than watch a nationally televised caps game?
