In light of the Irvin suspension, I cannot help but speculate is PC's attitude towards competition forcing the players to feel like they need to break the rules in order to make the roster. Other than Sherman, all of the 6 current or former players suspended for PED under PCJS were 2nd and 3rd stringers; in other words all those suspended were those who were backup/depth players who have been made no promises for job security unless they bring it each and every day.
While I love the competition attitude and the way that it has resulted in a talented, dynamic roster that can contend for the NFC, I feel this might be an unintended consequence of PC's philosophy of competition.
What do u think 12's? Is this totally crazy? Am I just trying to pin Irvin's dumb mistake on his team's leadership?
After the whole team saw Sherman's luck in avoiding a suspension last year why would anybody risk taking Adderll and risking a suspension and hurting the team? The only reason I can come up with is that Bruce felt he needed an edge to make it. I wonder if this is the downside to "Always Compete".
