OK.....

 

To recap....    he's got bad shoulders....

 

He's failed at least one drug test....

 

And the latest buzz is the NFL has concerns over the people that Foster hangs out with........

 

I think we have our candidate for 1st round player who might fall further than some think...

 

I'm not saying he falls out of the first round -- but he might -- only that once upon a time he was looked at by some as a top-5 guy.      Then it became top-10.      Then top-15 with Indy a possibility.

 

Now?      Who knows?

 

EDIT:    I just read that the failed drug test was at the COMBINE!!

 

I'll never understand kids who can't stay clean enough to be drug free at the combine.       You know when it is...    it's on the calendar.      you know how long you have to be off he stuff.    

 

And you STILL fail the test?

 

No thanks..........

Alright, this was the guy I have always wanted but it's becoming very clear he doesn't know how to be a functional human.

It could depend on the ramifications of the test

 Glad for this. Not interested in his attitude or smaller physique.

I could see a slip to the upper to mid 2nd, but no further. With it being a diluted sample vs an outright positive test for a substance, I can see a team pulling the trigger in the 2nd. I'm fine without taking him, but that also means Reddick becomes the #1 ILB prospect and most likely is gone by 15...

I just checked NFLs official document on this. As diluted sample isn't that rare, and in Olympic sports testing it happens quite often and isn't punished in anyway; but in NFL drug testing program, the criteria is very low so if one has that dilute sample, it's probably because some sort of diuretic/masking agent has been used.

 

Being very sick is another option but not sure that's the case here.

Do you guys even know how to read? It's a diluted sample. 

 

I also like his attitude regarding the "failed" drug test. It's hard to tell whether he actually has food poisoning, but the way he approached it was nice. If he falls to 15, I definitely want him there.

He is pretty sure now to fall to #15  what a dilemma. Did he cheat?  it looks like it but this could stink of a character issue so take him or not???

In pretty much every facet of life, yes.

So sad to see a guy who had so much talent sabotage his future like this. Really liked the guy before all this crap came rolling down hill, and now more just keeps coming.

I worked in a drug rehab court program as an intern, it happens ALL. THE. TIME.  And they get called out on it with other people in the program in an effort to basically tell everyone else, "Hey, we know you drank too much water on purpose.  We can tell, so just don't do it or you'll get in more trouble for trying to evade it."  They knew they were getting tested, they were told not to drink over a certain amount within x hours before testing, but people did it anyway.

Couldn't agree more.  Speaks to plain old intelligence (or lack of it) or to some character flaw that is preventing him from making poor decisions.  Either one will eventually affect his play.

Yes, because people know how to avoid positive samples.  People do it all the time and its that reason that diluted samples are treated as positives.  This isn't some ground breaking concept.  It happens all the time in drug rehab programs because people seem to think they can get away with it (some actually do).  In their mind, i'ts better to drink too much water and hope to get away with it than go into a test and admit defeat.  

 

So when there's a diluted sample (and this is ESPECIALLY true when you know you are getting one), a diluted sample is rightfully treated as a positive result.  You are told beforehand not to drink to X amount water within X time before your test or it will dilute the sample and be treated as a positive.  If you go in and give a diluted sample, chances are, you're trying to cheat the results.

 

So yes, we know how to read.  We just know what it means when the sample is diluted.

Sure they did and that will never change.  I am "positive" RF knew he was getting tested too...and he also was aware of what you are saying...  maybe this was part of his aggravation prior to getting sent home.... he knew he would test positive.  Too bad, he is a good LBr..... someone will deal with it though just like always.

abbreviated for positive which I didn't expect to trigger the content filter, lol

The scary part is that Drug Screening at the combine is not new

That's a bit of an overstatement.

Yeah, this will drop his draft stock a bit - not sure how far.  It's always a toss up.  Tunsil dropped like 10 picks or something.  Randy Gregory dropped almost 2 rounds.  If I recall, Gregory tested positive at the combine, while Tunsil's was an old video.  So I'm thinking this is more like Gregory.  He may not drop that far because I think Gregory already had some weed busts on his record, but I wouldn't be surprised if Foster dropped a full round.

If the doctors gave the thumbs up I would still take him.  I couldn't care less about his argument with some nurse or whatever.

    •   As long as it is not a typo, I will be prepared.
    •   I saw that too.  I can make it work, but I thought we were doing Sunday, September 3rd, in the afternoon?   No?
    • No prob. I think colt and pat fans can get along.  Did i just say that?  I threw up a lil in my mouth just thinking about it. The pats are easy to hate. (For the rest of the league)  
    •   Michael Phelps challenges whale to race  
    •   I was just pointing out when I look at stats, I will look to see what makes up the stats, how are the stats come by, are the stats effected by things like play calling (run the ball in the end zone or pass it), coaching (are you a passing team or a ball control team) etc.  Then i can get a better gauge on stat as to whether or not, and to what extent, I think that it is reflective of the intrinsic value contributed by a player.  Drew Brees throws over 5000 yards a handful of times, and so on.    With Passing yards and passing TDs, there is element where a player has an opportunity to garner these stats and not necessarily by his own skill.   If Team A (like the Pats in SB 51) are trailing (or are in shootout and need to keep scoring as its D is a sieve and keeps yielding score for score) in say 12 games, then the offense on that team will still be running and gunning till the end of the game in 12 games. And in the other 4 games they are in control and the offense and the team are trying run out the clock.  And say the team throws for an extra 80-100 yards and 1 TD on average in those 12 games they will throw an additional 1000 yards and 12 TDs.   Lets flip it around and say Team B is the exact opposite and is in a shootout for 4 games and running out the clock in 12 games and all else is the same.  Well they with throw for an additional 400 yards and 4 TDs.   And lets add that we know that each QB can do the same regardless of which team he is on.    We will have at the end of the season QB for Team A will of had an opportunity to put up 600 more passing yards and 8 passing TDs.  So if the two end up as follows:   QB Team A:  4600 yards, 38 TDs QB Team B:   4000 yards, 30 TDs   As first look it looks like QB on Team A is the "better" QB, but when we look to the above, understand that either QB could do same on the other team, the separation is not attributed to intrinsic talent of the QB but merely the fact that one more opportunities to cumulate stats.     And this is just a illustration to show my point.  it could just as easily be just 4 games versus 1 game where each thrown for 150 yards each and 1 TD and thus the overall difference would be 450 yards and 3 TDs, and so on.   So that is why i would like to be able get our hands around stats similar to the above to get a better gauges on the end yearly numbers.   My sense in reading some responses is that the colts did not have a good a defense as the pats, that they had more offensive weapons; and as such, likely might of found themselves in Team A's situation more times than Team B's.  I do not mean 12 games, but what ever it is, be nice to know it to get a more weighted value in the end.    Btw, i loved what you did with the comparisons and looked to each player against their contemporaries and that gives a better gauge then trying to compare  a player from 2014 to one in 1982.
