    I know there's the big to do with the judge basically fighting for the players that were going to get suspended, but I wonder if that could have effected Vickerson too. Was his case similar to those other guys (same substance?)? Maybe it's too late now that he's agreed to the suspension?

    Seems like we'd bring in a DT for a few games....like the PS guy?

    vickerson took the suspension so he would be available for the playoffs. the williams' wall wanted to play so they could help their team actually get to the playoffs.

    They'll have to. I think Ball was who they moved over when Haynesworth and Brown was hurt in Baltimore. They may have to do it again and go with Hayes and Ford working in KVB's spot.

    They have Amon Gordon and Derrick Jones on the PS. I'd think one has to come up tomorrow.

    I bet they wish they had Mookie.

    The judge's decision will keep all players on the field until AFTER the play-offs. This is going to be settled out of court because the players agreed to the administration of the drug policy per part of the CBA. The league did not violate the agreed upon administration.

    It really does put the Titans/Vickerson in an undesirable position now. I'd like to see some discussion w/ MR and the league to have Vickerson's suspension delayed until this issue is resolved with the settlement.
