NFL players and fans laughed under their breath when the Texans’ Brian Cushing denied using performance enhancing substances after being suspended four games in 2010 for violating the NFL’s PED policy. It’s not often that players call out or mock other players for that unless their name is Rodney Harrison. Rumors swirled about steroid use even before the Texans linebacker was drafted out of USC. He promised to go full OJ and find out how the hormones got into his system. We have yet tpo hear back.
Cushing should have gone full Romo and embraced the use of performance enhancing substances instead of issuing denials that would have made AC Cowlings shake his head. Bill Romanowski didn’t deny using them and anything else that would bring out the crazy. His play and antics on the field backed up his statements. Ain’t no one believe that he wasn’t on the juice. The NFL mic’ed up Cushing for the Texans game against the Browns. Watch this excerpt and see if you think he’s clean
If that’s not ‘roid rage, Blaine Gabbert is a servicable NFL QB. You can watch the full clip here. Watch Cushing’s teammates react to him. It’s as though they’re unsure how to deal with him. “Yeah dude, whatever you say. I gotta go stand over there now.” How long until he goes Michael Westbrook on an unsuspecting teammate who refuses to give him an exploding fist bump?
You know what’s better than toast? Mo’ toast and that’s how I beat Larry Holm’, Dabe Robenfeld.
Leave it to the MLS to introduce sponsors on jerseys in the US. It may be common everywhere else in the world but the top four professional leagues have managed to avoid advertising on jerseys until now. The NFL voted to allow teams to place sponsor logos on their practice jerseys back in March. Expect a bukkake-style explosion of ads before long as most teams will do anything to make a buck.
Zero Tolerance Entertainment thinks it can make the Houston Texans bend over for “several zeros” and place the company logo on their practice jerseys. Good luck with that. Zero Tolerance is best … well, only known for porn. You can find all your favorites such as Jenna Haze, Courtney Cummz, Rebeca Linares and the almost legit Sasha Grey. We’re not even going to link to their website but don’t front like you don’t know the address already. Fine, here’s the NSFW link. We can’t begin to tell you how NSFW this link is unless you work for Vivid. I just ordered Popporn: The Guide to Making Fuck. It was a no-brainer once I heard Gene Shalit makes dirty mustache love to it.
It’s safe to say the offer is a non-starter. The company issued a press release stating as much.
“Every team in the league starts the season by saying, that they’ll have Zero Tolerance for losing,” the company said. “While our offer may not be taken seriously, there is some undeniable synergy between the NFL and the name of our company.”
Zero tolerance for what? Fun? Self-expression? The name seems more appropriate for the NFL than the company. We’ve seen plenty of Zero Tolerance offerings and it’s pretty clear their talent will tolerate almost anything.
The Texans should do themselves a favor and consider the offer. The synergy between the Texans and the company starts and stops with the Sex Cannon. This could be a partnership for the ages especially barely 18.
Houston Texan’s backup running back Ryan Moats was pulled over by a police officer while speeding to his dying mother-in-law March 17th but because of the actions of that officer, Moats was unable to be by her side when she passed.
Moats was speeding towards the hospital with his wife in tow and at one point even threw his flashers on driving through a red light in an effort to make it to the hospital in time to say his final farewells and that is when he caught the attention of one Dallas police officer who finally pulled him over in the hospital parking lot. Moats’ wife ran into the hospital, disregarding the officer, while Moats himself was pleading to the cop to let him go to his dying mother in law, all while being ignored. He never got to see her before she died.
You should watch the video of the event here on Dallasnews.com, its pretty amazing that the cop didn’t bother to listen to anything that Moats was saying.
At this point, the Dallas police have dropped the ticket that was issued to Moats and apologized, but there is an investigation of the officer pending. Lets hope the guy gets into this situation with one of his own dying relatives. Then maybe he’ll understand that a little sympathy goes a long way with dealing with the people he is sworn to protect and serve…emphasis on serve.
Assistant Police Chief Floyd Simpson said it the best
“When people are in distress, we should come to the rescue,” said Simpson. “We shouldn’t further their distress.”
Steve Slaton, by all accounts, had a pretty miserable game on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. He rushed for all of 7 yards on 4 carries. Coach Gary Kubiak has an excuse for the young baller:
“He was really worn down, to be honest with you,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “He struggled last week in practice – just sharpness, speed, those types of things. He didn’t miss any time or anything, but we just felt like we were going to do everything we could to split those reps up even more so…”
“I would hope that him not playing as many reps this week gets him back to full speed, but the kid needed a break,” Kubiak said. “He’s played a lot of football in a short period of time. I expect him to bounce right back.”
Somebody call the wahhhbulance here, Slaton has carried the rock just 124 times this season. I don’t hear rookie running back Matt Forte calling for a breather and he’s had 65 more carries than Slaton. Kevin Smith in Detroit can’t get enough playing time for that moribund franchise and is begging for more than the 93 carries he’s had. Chris Johnson is a beast with his 160 carries. What is the problem here with Steve Slaton? Maybe he got a little afraid when he heard Bart Scott’s comments about him.
Slaton is third in the league among rookie running backs and averaging 4.4 yards a carry and he needs to be on the field if the Texans are going to have a chance to win. His needing a break couldn’t have helped out Sage Rosenfels in that blow out last week. This kid needs a strong cup of Red-Bull and coffee so he can wake up to the fact that he is not in college anymore. Its the NFL. You get tired in the offseason. You play on Sundays, you don’t sleep.
