I said this many times after last season.

It's not how you start, it's how you finish.

If Nuk makes or breaks us we aren't very good and I don't believe that.
Huh?
How did we finish without Hopkins? Apparently losing Hopkins broke us the last 6 games….so, this year the first 6 games?
0-6 to start and finish string?

Completely different scenarios and rosters. Plus lessons learned.

Put it this way, if we start 0-6 without Nuk we aren't good enough to win anything anyway. In which case it doesn't matter much does it.

Oh, didn't realize that. How about Julio Jones?

You never know but his first time he took 11 months from injury to return to playing. That was just 2020 so not like ages ago and technology massively better. He got hurt in the Super Bowl so my guess is he'll miss a good chunk of the year.

Jones tempting but I'm guessing he won't come cheaply.

My guess is Brown or Green plays the D Hop role. Also makes it even more likely Wesley is back next year although I felt he probably would be anyways.

So Brown, Green, Moore, Wesley.

I'll wait to see what he actually tested positive for. I know people like to look at PEDs in a black and white way. Just not the case. You can test positive for PEDs that don't actually have anything to do with PEDs.

Can he participate in training camp?
Who cares he put the team in a major hole, mentally & physically. We already know how the players & Kliff adjusted without him.

I think they should trade him right before the deadline if it’s not in contention. Time to move on imo

They usually don't make that public though

Does using masking agents for weed also carry 6 games? Just curious if that could be the case here.

They wouldn't have said PED would they I don't think pot is considered a PED.

My understanding is that they found a masking agent and not specifically a PED. Though it could specifically be a masking agent for PEDs.
