    Me too!! Great point Shawn.

The crap attitude of Wallace and FUMBLE-hall hurt the team bad. And the fact that Ben isn't a real leader made it worse.
    I agree. But, that might mean taking a guy with a little less upside in the talent part but brings leadership and a love for the game.

    I don't disagree. But Deion sat down with this kid and said not only did he have a good attitude but that he was a leader not a follower. I don't know how much weight to put into a Deion Sanders' evaluation, but that's what he said. Deion didn't really do all that well with Pacman Jones but who could at that point?

    Legalize the ganja already!!! So we can quit referring to it as some terrible act like armed robbery or doing heroin... Weed should be the least of people concerns , the problem is its still illegal and people think because I this, coupled with years of media brainwashing, that its a legitamet crime and cause for prison time. While we have drugs like addictive substances like ciggarets , alchohal, and pharmaceuticals killing and ruining lives by the thousands every year.


    Sorry little off the football topic but I think it's just rediculas how Americans react to something when they are told it is "bad" as compared to "legal".

    No thanks. I knew a man who had the responsibility of raising children and he was high all the time. I know the affects that it has on a family. Say what you think you know about marijuana but I know the truth. A man who never had the desire to support his family, who was too lazy to do anything for himself, and was always irritable when he didn't have his high. And then that high got to a point where it wasnt strong enough for him anymore. Because drugs are a physical addiction as well as a mental obsession his body required a stronger high. He then had to upgrade to cocaine then crystal meth. Then he became a monster to his daughter and son. I dont think legalizing marijuana is a good idea.

    The weed doesnt bother me but how many times was he busted? You have to do a lot to get kicked off LSU.

    No thanks. There are plenty of other DBs who really want an NFL career. Don't need to roll the dice on this guy.

    BTW, the weed may not be an issue for you guys sitting in your living room lighting up but it is for the Steelers and the NFL. How quickly you forget Stupidio Holmes.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    For what it's worth, Chadman's with Dee Dub on this. Any substance that impares judgement the way that weed does cannot be allowed to be used holus-bolus.

    Now, some of you will ask the difference between weed & alcohol in that regard, and the answer is... well, there's really not much difference. How many crimes, or injuries are suffered as a result of alcohol?

    Of course, to put this in perspective, this viewpoint is coming from a tea-tottler...
