    On the other hand, I am at a loss for words that Browner makes it out of the CFL only to do his best to whiff on a decent NFL contract for the only time in his career and head right back to the CFL.


    I care more about Thurmond too.

    Browner has already missed a handful of games this year, and when he was playing he seemed a step slow and was getting called for penalties repeatedly.

    I think Thurmond has outplayed him this year. If we can survive till Thurmond is back, I think we'll be fine. Maybe even better than with Browner out there.

  • Mort has reported the appeal was already heard, so he is done, back to the CFL.

    The ped report was false, but the year suspension for substance abuse was reported on air by schefter. Pretty certain it's true.

  • Only reason it bothers me is it because it makes the team look bad. Other that... Whatever. Was probably done for the year anyways.

    No contract issues. Let's see what lane and Maxwell do

I know with the Saints bounty gate, there were players who were suspended for a year that got reduced if I remember right but Sean Payton had to serve one year and Greg was indefinitely but got reinstated after the year. But in terms of 1 year, it means a whole season, not number of games.


    You might be correct.

  • Ugh well, Let me say this is infuriating and sucks. Also lets not kid out selves BB was starting to become our next trufant, he's good but the injuries are starting to become more frequent. He made his bed he has to sleep in it... Wonder how his wife and kids feel.. I know the kids a re really young like 4 and 6 or whatever but still how do you explain to you kids your not at work because you made a choice that put the family in jeopardy of losing everything due to something that was easily avoidable. Either way lets move on, and speculate who we might us in his place for good, and who will be the 4th LOB member now.

    Also how come its only the Seahawks that get the big noticeable "Developing story" crap at the top of the page.. I despise the NFL more and more the biased &^^#$*&Y)((&(*^^%$# ... :)

    He is in the substance abuse program by his own admission last year, which means he gets tested more often than other players.

    I need to step away from the computer and let this sort itself out.


    Except he's never been suspended for substance abuse. If he's on the program and failed, it's should only be a 4 game suspension.

    You don't combined the PED program and substance abuse program.

    I'm going to wait until the time is deemed appropriate to express my outrage at this turn of events.

    On Browner? Yes. This is disappointing for sure we're fairly deep in the secondary and this can be mitigated by shifting more to the offense specifically Wilson.

  • Even if he appealed and won (apparently already denied) he'd be done in Seattle. Not worth paying a guy his age, with his history, to play half a season.

    Maybe ol' Gus will do us a solid and let us have Blackmon back.

  • Players sometimes over celebrate being 10-1. Yes, it sometimes make them dumb expecting not to be tested randomly, even though I sense a pattern of randomness when it comes to the Seahawks. I don't blame Pete and John, but why didn't we see this in Holmgren era, is it more the rules have changed with the new CBA?

    Don't think it matters what it is, he is done, we have some selfish players on this team who need to grow and take there job seriously.

    Tim Ruskell and his character guys...I'd rather have to put up with morons like Browner and win, frankly. As long as players aren't killing people or shooting at people or driving drunk, I can deal with them not being able to beat a PED or weed test as long as they win.

  • You gotta be f#@!ing kidding me...

    "UPDATE: NFL.com has retracted its initial report that a pending suspension for the Seahawks Brandon Browner was for performance enhancing drugs and says the suspension instead is for violating the league's substance abuse policy"

    The whole secondary is going Harold and Kumar on us.

  • Bye Browner. This year has been terrible yet we are 10-1

    Harvin not playing this whole year until last week
    Okung, Giacomini being injured since week 2 and 3 and finally got back to playing.
    Unger being out a few games.
    Thurmond suspended 4 games now
    Browner being injured here and there and now done for a year.
    Irvin being suspended the first 4 games.
    Rice out for the year with Injury midway through season
    Starting FB done and we brought back Mrob which is probably better but still.

    Im sure im missing a few more but man this has been rough.

    IF IT IS ALL TRUE.

    Browner did a lot for this team. He made a mistake. He has a substance abuse problem, and shouldn't be crucified for his illness. Put the high horses back in the garage and let's move forward with our great depth.

    Aldon Smith can go booze all night, get behind the wheel put people's life in danger multiple times... play a game 48 hours later like nothing happened, then get a casual month and a half off at some rehab facility. Meanwhile Browner takes a stimulant/depressant - like alcohol - that is legal in the state and gets popped for a year?

    Maybe I sound like an idiot, who's to say. Anyways back to supporting the best team in the NFL on the quest.

    Aldon Smith is actually an alcoholic, which is why I don't rip him, really. He's sick.

    Marijuana is not physically addictive. Browner just loves that green, which many of us do sometimes, but we actually have jobs and so we don't smoke like college students. Browner is just dumb more than anything. Aldon is legit ill.

    Not unless it's shotgunned straight into your mouth.


    No. In the military we had guys hanging out with civilians that smoked pot. The person smoking it actually filters the THC into their body, so you can get a contact high.

    I know this as fact as I went to a Lynyrd Skynrd concert at the old Seattle Collesium and got lit up by all the pot smoke. Literally the next day, Chief comes into the yard and hollers out a few names. We come in and "whiz quizz". I took Chief aside and explained the situation, he told me that if I didn't actively smoke anything, I was fine. I took the test and passed it.

  • At least it saves this franchise from making a huge mistake in giving him a giant contract when he will be 30 next year.
