    I honestly think that Denver defense is pretty mediocre without Miller and losing Dumberville.

    Even better chance for Watt to get DPOY again.

    Too bad the suspension isn't the last four games of the season instead of the first.

    Big hit to their team. If it costs them an extra win or two in the season that may ultimately help us in the end for playoff positioning.

    Yes. Still breaking the player agreement and probably contract as well.

    You can't fly to a country where steroids are legal to take them either.
