    Hot off the press at ESPN..............

    He and Matthews were rumored to have used at USC, and both denied it. I saw the change in their physiques - didn't believe them then, and now I definitely don't.

    You never know what you don't know, so give BB some slack.

    This was too obvious to actually happen. :bricks:

    you'd think that after being under so much scrutiny regarding suspicion of PED's when he was drafted last year, that he's actually stop after he successfully slipped through the cracks and got drafted so high. The guy came out of nowhere, I guess thats where he's going. Just ask a NOW clean Merriman.

    Guess he got ****y.

    LOL! Yeah, I guess many of us "knew", but now we truly do. :)

    Let's see how good he is off the juice. I suspect a huge drop off.

    I was blasted here by some people last year for putting pictures of Cushing up in before and after mode. He went from needing a Costanza-Manzere to looking like the incredible hulk.

    And yet this was considered a form of bashing to suggest something was off.

    I think a lot of people knew this before last year's draft. It's kind of sad to see it turn out this way, but it's not a total shocker. I'm glad we didn't draft him now.

    Metro area football?.......... given the above first shot photo, one might believe he was on estrogen and not roids.

    Any idea which drug it was?

    Also, is the suspension a 3rd strike type deal or one and done?

    Yeah, you're right, and all those Irish douchebags are drunks. Oh wait.

    I'll remind you that Matt Cassel and Willie McGinest were Trojans.

    Just another example showing Pete Carroll didn't run the tightest ship out there. Glad the Pats didn't move up to get him--us fans would never hear the end of it!

    Amazingly, the Commissioner is silent on stripping these cheaters of their honors (like DROY) which it is clear is in some measure due to PED use.

    Yep, he was notorious in high-school football circles for turning from a scrawny nobody to a pumped-up hulk in an impossibly short time.

    IOW, if it's true, the only suprising thing is that he got caught.

    It's actually quite simple: DROY (and OROY, regular season MVP, etc.) is not awarded by the NFL itself.

    OTOH, the rules for the one major award given out by the NFL—Pro Bowl honors—were changed after Shawne Merriman's suspension to specifically prohibit players in this situation from being voted to the Pro Bowl the season of their suspension (i.e., Cushing will not be returning to the Pro Bowl this year, period).
