This is the guy better than Dez?
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested in Raleigh, N.C., for driving while impaired, according to Raleigh police captain Tommy Klein.
Klein said Gordon was "appreciably impaired."
DWI in Raleigh is driving subject to an impairing substance.
Gordon could be facing a one-season NFL suspension for another failed drug test. He was suspended two games last season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
Wow, hes gunna throw away a could be great career if he does not wake up soon. Dont know what he did, lets hope its minor. Wake up man!
Wow. You know, I actually kind of feel sorry for this guy. He has some issues he needs to work out. Hope he gets things in order.
Some guys can overcome their baggage, and some guys can't.
I hope he gets his life together. It's sad that these kids have to struggle with the opportunities they get.
The guy is facing a year long suspension and now he gets arrested? What an idiot!
I think this is the last nail in his coffin. and deservedly so for stupidity if nothing else.
Go get him jerry
He'll be suspended, fined and cut by the Browns and the NFL.
Then Jerrah can step up, sign him, overpay him, and we can all talk about why it will workout and what a great team we will be one day.
(strumming fingers on the keyboard rapidly)
This guy is surely an alcoholic
Honestly man... I know this is said all the time, but I normally never do. However, your post made me truly wonder why you don't find another team to pull for?
I really think you'd be happier. This team and it's front office seem to make you miserable and bitter.
You certainly don't owe me an answer and you can pull for a team any way that you want... but why stick with Dallas?
I don't know if alcohol is his problem. It isn't clear what he was on that had him impaired during this arrest. I don't believe any of his past issues involved any alcohol. Weed has been his drug of choice.
I'm trying to remember the last player with drug problems Jerry overpaid for. Of the guys I remember, none of them were overpaid.
answers are as follows..
Been a Cowboy Fan since growing up in Dallas.
My first season to watch the team was the summer of '65..
Dad was a Washington Redskins fan having grown up in Washington DC and was in the FBI and we lived there off and on as he was transferred a lot..for like 30 years..
..so when we moved to Dallas..he went right out and bought season TICKETS.
We have them in the family still..we all take turns at paying the options and the packages.
Multiply that by 50 years of supporting the team with my pocket and not just my mouth..
and I think that gives me some perspective.
A lot of speculation on Twitter the Browns will cut ties. Even more speculation that this guy will continue downward spiral without a team support system when suspended for a year. I wouldnt hold it against Jerry to offer him a low risk contract down the road. If the guy can get it together, he can flat out ball.
I heard he blew a .09 (sorry don't remember which article, it showed up on my phone news screen)
In any case, if you're in the situation he's in, and you still find yourself getting arrested for this type of thing... That to me indicates a substance problem (and/or some other underlying metal health issues)
I agree that he has a substance abuse problem or mental health issues. I just don't think it is necessarily limited to alcohol or that alcohol is his main issue. It was just his issue in this one particular incident.
Every time I read something like this about another player in which the media overlooked his problems to hand him a jeweled crown, I feel a bit of satisfaction.
I feel sorry for the player, but I love the middle finger it sends ESPN and NFL network.
Criticize and harp on Dez. Ruin his name with your assumptions to the point everyone basically thinks he's Aaron Hernandez. But for all their "coverage" there were bigger concerns... Actual legitimate concerns elsewhere. But they still stirred the pot and avidly rooted against the guy, even if they didn't realize that's what they were doing.
Alas, Dez will never get the apology or commendation he deserves from the media, but their silence is just as sweet; for Dez and for those of us who have and still believe in him.
Dez is a guy I want on my 53.
