Just saying. There was a lockout from March until August, meaning he could have gotten right back on them without being tested. His 2010 campaign was terrible.

Starting to think this is could be the scenario.

Oh where to begin, for one the 2011 season started back in August so the drug testing did as well. So what you're proposing is a 2.5 month long performance drug?

Way to ask a question nobody can answer... I dont think he had time to and without getting caught.

I think it's odd that he tested positive for them after the 2009 season, served a 4 game suspension and really didn't play well at all.

There was no testing during the lockout and now he's back to 2009 form? Little fishy. I meann, look at Shawn Merriman. Once he got caught a few years ago, he wwas never the same. He's playing better, but again, there was no testing for 5 months.

Maybe he's kind of good at football?

Sometimes, when a player gets coached by a defensive coordinator who isn't incompetant, their play will improve.

Not only that, but when you add in more talent around a player, such as a starting CB, FS, and a 1st RD pick on the DL in front of him, said player will have the supporting cast that many playmakers need.

Probably steroids though.

I think the drug testing started in July because if remember right they were trying to agree on how drug testing and punishing players for getting was going into trouble was going to work.

But during the preseason I was wondering the same thing if Brian Cushing was on PEDs again during the lock-out

Yep, every successful player is on steroids. That's amazing that your detective work has uncovered this vast conspiracy.

The only reason I'm pointing out Cushing is because he was caught, after he was caught, he sucked.

Then, when there wasa 5 month period of no testing, he's suddenly just as good as he was when he was a rookie?

I'm not pointing out every successful player is on steriods. Just the one who was cuaght. Moron.

The guy has been considered bound for greatness since, what? high school? Middle school? I think its safe to say some of it might be a product of him being good. Furthermore I believe he is in a more natural role as a 3-4 ILB than a 4-3 outside backer.

Clay Matthews was reported to have tested positively for steroids at the scouting combine. Do we credit his current success to steroids?

How come he was never suspended then his rookie season? Don't buy that.

Look at Cushing. Does he look Naturally Muscular to you?

That might have something to do with him blowing out his knee. Just a thought.

Only Vidae, Bant and Brodeur are allowed to call me names. TH has probably earned the right too...you have no argument beyond 'Does he look naturally muscular?' Show me another positive test. Show me anything besides complete conjecture. Otherwise, don't. and shhh.

Its possible I mean the guy sat the bench most of his high school career except for a couple of games.

To be fair there were rumors of Brian Cushing taking steroids during his high school years.

Of the two, Cushing was highly recruited while Matthews was a walk on. Matthews was a special teams only player his whole college career until he bulked up in one off season and became a starter in his final year bolting from no name to top NFL prospect seemingly over night. Cushing was on recruit's raider since his early high school years and was a 4 year starter.

If you heard that story without knowing the names of the players you would think Clay was the juicer.

Cushing and Matthews were included in previous reports indicating that up to six prominent players had tested positive for performance-enhancing or recreational drugs in tests administered in February at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis

both were told that they were clean later. However, Cushing got caught again.

The doctor who administers the NFL policy on performance-enhancing drugs told highly regarded USC linebackers Brian Cushing and Clay Matthews Jr. on Friday that neither tested positive for banned substances, including steroids

There were a ton of reports that had Cushing linked to steriod use back in High School.

Players have never bounced back after having a bad season, he must be juicing again... Usually when you have a bad season it means your just a bad football player and should retire unless there's a lockout where you can sneak in some juicing sessions and play good again for one more season....

um, no....stop exaggerating to prove your point.

He was a special teams player, he then in an off season put on a decent amount of weight and became a full time starter. I'm not saying he was juicing, by all accounts he is a monster in the weight room. What part of this is false? I believe he may have had a few snaps at LB when Cush was injured

EDIT: He had 2 starts in 2007 when Cushing was out, other than that he was a reserve linebacker and special teams player who appeared for minimal playing time at the LB position while excelling on special teams? 15 tackles in 2006 (includes ST) 17 tackles in 2007 (includes ST) stand out special teams player maybe, but nothing special otherwise.

They just need to legalize roids in football. For my money I'd prefer watching juiced up Space Jam monsters go at it any day of the week.

Its not that big of a jump to think that a guy that has been caught using steroid would use them again during a time where he had no chance of getting caught.

The majority of his success is because of his new coordinator and position though.

I, for one, am glad Brian Cushing uses steroids, because if he didn't have 'roid pecs he would have the absolute worst tits anyone has every seen.

He was never a full time starter....actually. So you dont know what youre talking about.

But with Cushing, he now has a good supporting cast around him which has definitely helped his play. Hes in the perfect role for his style of play, and its showing.
