Default Holmes isnt getting suspended 4 games

RB Kevin Faulk Suspended Week 1

Patriots 3rd down specialist Kevin Faulk was suspended for the first regular season game following his arrest for possession of marijuana at a Lil Wayne concert in February.

Although this seems like a loss for the Pats, the team still can use RB LaMont Jordan (who has great hands out of the backfield) in his place. Mike Reiss also points out that the suspension means Faulk will not count against the Patriots 53-man roster until after week 1, allowing the team to keep an extra player on their roster.

Matt Jones was suspended 3 game after getting charged and arrested for felony cocaine possession. he was cutting up cocaine on his dashboard for Christ sake and he barely got 3 games.

I'd wait to see what the NFL has to say first, especially with their recent encounters with Steeler players regarding fines and such.

if he gets more than faulk it would get appealed and shortened in a millisecond.

We have to back up...

first... regardless of anything else, I want to see a conviction or an admission.

Then, I want to see a suspension. If teh league suspends, like I said somewhere else, I want the Steelers to suspend agian... double the suspension.

Faulks happened in the offseason, that may be a factor.

Another thing, hasn't Holmes had prior 'off the field issues' in his career? Did Faulk prior to his weed incident? Isn't that something the commish might consider? As I said before, I like Santonio, I hope he doesn't get suspended at all.

Actually, no he didn't.

When he was first drafted, he was arrested for disorderly conduct or something like that. Basically, he stepped into the street around a cop in some kind of block party. It was dropped...

The other was a domestic charge that was dropped quite quickly once it came to light. More a case of (and I don't say this lightly, please see my posts concerning Harrison and dookie) the girl seeing dollar signs right after the draft.

I am a bit worried that the Commish may send another message to the Steelers for all the other stuff going on with Hines and Troy, etc...
If he gets more than one game then something is definately fishy.... and will again show his biased towards the * PATS. From what I have read Santonio was not even arrested just cited for a court date..

I can see that easily. The Rooney's don't seem to tolerate this garbage.
