I don't know how much clout Rod Smith holds considering he has had his own off the field troubles during his career.

Any significant suspension plummets Marshall's and Cutler's value, both of whom I was disturbingly high on. Can't say that Marshall hasn't earned any suspension he gets though.

I just don't see it. It seems a little unprecedented. I can't recall any suspension of that size being handed out for fairly minor arrests. I don't have time right now to look it up but Pacman pleaded out to some of his.

Chris Henry?

Henry was arrested four times in a 14-month span, resulting in two benchings by coach Marvin Lewis and a two-game league suspension. He was one of nine Bengals arrested in nine months.


Marshall was arrested 3 times in a 12 month span with a DUI pending, thats not much different then Henry at this point...Adam Jones was involved in roughly 10 incidents involving police, which led to his suspension being a years time...These don't have to be huge issues, it just has to be consistently happening for it to become a problem.


This is how Goodell looks at it:
"We must protect the integrity of the NFL," commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. "The highest standards of conduct must be met by everyone in the NFL because it is a privilege to represent the NFL, not a right. These players, and all members of our league, have to make the right choices and decisions in their conduct on a consistent basis."


Basically anyone who continues to have run ins with the law will be suspended, its not that hard to stay out of trouble, and Goodell is cracking down on the guys who can't seen to grasp the concept, and Marshall's list of little run ins look exactly like some of these guys who were suspended:

* While at UCF he was arrested and charged with assault on an officer

* He was arrested last year for suspicion of domestic violence

* 6 Months later he was charged with a DUI



And I believe last month he was pulled over without his license and registration, so at this point I would say he's looking more towards 2-4 games right now, but he's on the path to missing 8-16 games unless he really takes that next step in maturing...Seems like Goodell gets tougher each time though so it's hard for me to tell what it will be...As far as Lynch, if he gets arrested again then suspension talk will come up with him, its first time offenders that usually get a warning, but not guys with a history of the same stuff.

Brandon Marshall was probably responsible for Darrent Williams death.

This guy just does not know how to act. Denver made a HUGE mistake hitching their wagon to this guy instead of Javon Walker. There are two types of guys you have to look out for. People who get into trouble and troublemakers. Marshall is a troublemaker.

Even if he is a troublemaker, it's an eggregious reach to say he was rsponsible for Williams' death. He didn't pull the trigger, and there's a big gap between pulling the trigger and spraying the possible shooter with champagne...

Did the incident at UCF happen while he was in college? If so it should not be in the equation.

Was he ever charged for the domestic violence case, or just arrested?

Every NFL player gets a DUI, no one has been suspended for their first one.

Uh, I agree with you that Marshall is complete moron. But to say Javon Walker is any better is a huge stretch. Didn't Walker just do the same thing Marshall did in the Williams incident? Spraying champagne at people is so disrespectful and if you do it to the wrong guys you WILL get hurt. Marshall's an idiot...and Walker's an idiot.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Who said Walker is better? I was referring to Marshall having sprayed champagne, which IIRC is allegedly also what may have played a part in the altercation involving Williams' death.

per roto:

Brandon Marshall appeared out of shape at Broncos practice Friday, having to take a knee after nearly every other route he ran.
Marshall's conditioning was questioned last camp as well, and his injury problems this off-season didn't help. He obviously worked his way into shape last year, although we wonder what will happen while Marshall serves his suspension. He could find out the length of the suspension next week.

On a side note Cutler looked very sharp.
