Confirming Coleman has violated substance policy

New, comments

Just confirming what's been widely reported.

League sources confirmed Tuesday that the veteran safety [Marcus Coleman] has violated the NFL's substance-abuse policies. He's expected to be suspended for the first four games of the regular season.

The earliest he could return would be Oct. 15 against the Texans.

With the roster battles we've got going on, it's hard to believe that Parcells will carry Coleman through this suspension.

Gil LeBreton has a very strange article up about the supposed QB controversy. He ends with this.

Tight end Jason Witten was delighted to see Bledsoe perform almost flawlessly in his first preseason action.

"Drew's our guy," Witten said. "We have to stand behind him."

Sure. But considering the hapless hosts, the real story would have been if Bledsoe had been anything less than 12-of-16 for 156 yards and two touchdowns.

Quarterbacks? Don't draw any conclusions. Not this Monday night.


Someone read the whole thing and explain to me in the comments what his point is. If it's just that the Saints are a bad team so Bledsoe's performance means nothing, that's just lazy journalism.
