    Re: Sams charged with DUI



    I'm not going to comment on the drunk driving, but I will say thank god we kept Ross. Put him back there on punt and kick returns, no sense in possibly hurting Clayton.

    There is absolutely no reason to put Clayton back there. Clayton is way too impotant to do returns.

    Cory Ross did fine during the preseason, let's see what he can do.

    How freaking hard is it to hire a driver or just invite people over and drink at home!

    Re: Sams charged with DUI

    What's sad as well as it happened in almost exactly the same damn spot where he got busted for it last year! And they ALWAYS have state troopers around that area of the JFX right before the Beltway.

    Some people just don't learn their lessons.

    I say cut him. Second strike, and we are trying to shed that criminal/thug reputation as a team.

    Re: Sams charged with DUI

    Nice job BJ, he obviously isn't on board the team chemistry plan. He has let his teamates down, as I am sure a 4 game suspension is coming from the Commish. He obviously has an acohol problem & needs help, maybe he should check into rehab during his 4 weeks off. I like the guy, but it may be time to pull the plug. Anyone remember Ralph Staten, how many chances did he get? Wasn't he cut after his 2nd run in with the law?

    Re: Sams charged with DUI

    "I still don't get why these athletes, with all of their money, can't hire a driver for one night"

    That flips me out too. Everytime one of these guys are picked up for DUI, Fan and I say the same thing. Why risk your career or better yet, risk hurting someone else, when you have the means to hire someone to drive you for a night out.
    Just a guess here, but I think that people with a drinking problem rarely think they are going to get to the point where they are over the limit when they drink. Maybe they have no intention of drinking when they go out. And of course, they are utterly incapable of controlling their intake. So what you get is what he got last night. Yes of course there is the personal/team responsibility issue, but we have no idea how strong the drive to drink is.

    I wouldn't cut him just yet, he's good at what he does. Need I remind you of recent history (Brightful) and what an untested guy like Ross could turn out to be. My guess is that the NFL will subject him to rigorous testing and require a rehabilitation plan in addition to a suspension. It might work. It worked for Jamal.

    The more I think about it, the more I say cut him now. We don't want to become a team of turds like Cincy or Tennessee.

    Hell, he wouldn't even have to "hire someone to drive him". These guys always have a ton of "buddies" they go out with, make a deal with one of them to be the designated driver and be sure everyone gets home safely.

    Ugh, please don't remind me of Brightful. Please.

    But yeah, we need to sit him down, whether the league does or not. If the Ravens cut him over this, I wouldn't object; if we keep him, it better be on a tight leash. I'd hate to lose a talent like his from our team, but this can't just be swept under the rug.

    Re: Sams charged with DUI

    I watched quite a bit of Brightful in the CFL playing for Montreal this season.
    The mess of decision making when that ball falls out of the sky towards his hands,was truly tragic.Not to mention when they put him in as a starting CB.

    i like BJ as a returner, but I'd kind of like to see Ross get his shot. I'd like to see one or two returns for TDs, and Sams is more likely to get us the consistent 20-25 yard KR/10yd PR than a breakway return.

    Brightful as a starting CB shows just how bad the CFL's talent pool is.
