    Parents. So anyone from 25-55 with children under 18, which is a huge demographic, would give a $#@! unless they don't care if their children's roll model is a pot head. It's not like you want your kid to think they can smoke pot and be an all star athlete or successful in business. Very few people can be potheads and have a good career or play at that level.

    That is all I can think of.

    I mean it all comes down to money. Do you want your players to look like thugs or respectful(NBA) This is the same thing, you don't want your players abusing drugs of any sort as it could lose you viewers and therefor $$$.

    I think the policy is under the guise of doing what is right but it really comes down to $$$ in the owners pockets. NFL teams are STUPIDLY profitable. Why allow anything to take away from your profits and at the same time you get to look like 'good guy' NFL the 'drug free zone'?

    I totally agree with you on all points except the bolded.

    I'd bet money there are double digit players on our 75 man who right now, would fail a drug test. No doubt about it.

    I'm speculating a bit but am confident that at least a third of NFL players routinely use recreational drugs during the season. That % rises appreciably during the off season.

    I disagree, the fact that these players cant follow basic rules no matter what the rule is, is mind-blowing.

    Thats like saying, there should be no ticket for rolling stop signs, it doesn't actually hurt anyone.

    A few more thoughts after watching the Steelers game, albeit just the TV copy live. Also re-watched the Skins game 1st half.


    1. Shazier got a little too held up in the run game. If there's a flaw of his, it's his lack of bulk and arm length. Makes it tough to disengage when the maulers get their mits on him. He'll adapt, but def. something he needs to improve on.
    2. Overall, the Steelers look faster and more explosive than I've seen from them in probably half a decade. A much need infusion of youth and talent in the last two drafts.
    3. The quality of the Eagles screen game is so good. The timing, misdirection, everything...truly outstanding playcalling.
    4. If you have a package of plays designed to "get a quarterback on the field", chances are he's

    A. Not very good
    B. Going to lose you games

    http://www.si.com/nfl/2014/08/22/cle...ensive-package

    ^shenanigans.

    5. Backup QB has to be one of the top 25-30 most important roster spots on a team. Fans don't pay much attention but you bet your ass teams do. If your QB goes down and you lack a viable backup, you jepordize the entire franchise. See 2008 Patriots VS. 2011 Colts.
    6. Since when the hell did Mike Mitchell flash that type of range from deep center field safety? Totaly blew me away on the TV copy, i'd love to see some snaps from the 22 tape.
    7. What's up with Big Ben? He looked totally out of sorts last night. Lethargic, uninterested, just not sharp at all. Tough to know where the blame lies.
    8. The Achilles heel of the Eagles this year will be pass rush on D, and ability to separate on O. I LOVE what Chip is doing there, but I don't like their WR group in terms of ability to win vs man. Outside of Maclin they lack H/W/S.
    9. Legarrette....what are you doing bro. Knucklehead.
    10. Specific to the Pats, I heard a few nuggets in passing from a good source. Easley looks pretty ridiculous in practice when he shades inside the guard, but still has a lot of rust to knock off. Sounds like his technique is way off, which isn't surprising right now. I expect to see him on the Jamie Collins development plan. Let's see where he is come January. Dobson won't play tonight as I understand it. Gronk has looked "dominant" in 11 on 11s this week - he just started full contact.

    I have all the coaches films available, but they take forever to process, if you want to help the subreddit with a donation r/NFLReplay I would be happy to upload the coach film.

    I only get the 22 angle for my employer (duh), rely on charity whenever I want to scout pro film from other teams. $#@!s on the gameday side get all the tape they could ask for, but I digress.

    It's awesome to have the bird's eye view yea? Totally changes what you see on the back end, particularly with regards to digesting coverage. It's almost impossible to do on the TV copy.

    So if I toss you a lil contribution you can upload specific plays? If so i'd be happy to do that, maybe get a little "film room" going where we can chat specific plays more in depth. I did a bit of that with old playbook pages and people seemed to enjoy it.

    To most people. The NFL drug policy is outdated. Hurting people over weed is idiotic. It's going to be legal everywhere soon enough and hopefully everyone realizes how stupid this crap was by then.

    Even when its legal everywhere employers can still have drug policies, and they should and will. If you work for the NFL you don't smoke pot, period.

    Lets get this spot filled. If we cant get it filled soon @Sticky how about we have a BimmerBoost team that you control separate from your team. If that team wins put the money towards the site? Just an idea.

    regarding the whole pot thing this is a business and you have to make business decisions. The public outcry and the danger of losing just one sponsor doesn't not outweigh the profits lost by banning a few players for a few games. They got caught while driving and smoking pot, alcohol is legal, you get caught drfinking and driving w/ open containers the NFL will have the same results, if not worse right?

    pats looked pretty damn good on Friday. If we can stay healthy we should go deep in the playoffs. Hell we went deep last year with major losses on both sides and 2nd and 3rd strings playing against 1st in the afc championship.

    I swear football always comes at the right time, ie. after a long summer of baseball.

    Bradford lost for the season. Not that the Rams were going to win it all but they had an outside shot at a wildcard spot. Not any longer...

    Man what a shame. Bradford was such a "clean" prospect coming out for a Quarterback. Everything you want to see in terms of traits he had, and he played in a power conference. Kid can't stay healthy and it's not like he's lit the world on fire when he has been.

    It is a shame about Bradford. Seems like he never reached his potential. Not writing him off but after two ACL's... man.
