The Redskins and Seahawks will battle Sunday afternoon in what surely will be a highly contested games. The two teams have already started to snipe at each other and Seattle defensive back Richard Sherman fired the first salvo when he stated no Redskins receiver gives him any worries.
Yesterday some Redskins fired back in their own delightful way. During a question and answer session with USA Today, Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander was asked if Sherman should be allowed to play Sunday in light of the accusations that he took Adderall.
Before he could answer, Skins Kedric Golston stepped out of his locker and fired off the shot, “he’s a cheater.” Alexander then chimed in with “it is what it is.”
”I don’t know what his total case and background of it is, or about the paperwork he did. He was doing Adderall, Ritalin, the same thing that (Redskins cornerback) Cedric (Griffin) was doing, I believe. I know there’s a (testing) procedure you have to do and even then, they can still hit you for it. It is what it is.”
The players seemed a little salty that Redskins cornerback Cedric Griffin was suspended 4 games for adderall use, but Sherman beat the rap.
Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall was asked about the matter, and surprisingly took the high road.
“We’re not going to wish someone a positive drug test and a four-game suspension just to win a game,” Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. “We’re out there and going to take it to them, regardless of who is out there. May the best team win.
“I’m happy he won it. I don’t know all the details of it. If he won his appeal, he won his appeal. We obviously would have been better off it he wasn’t playing, but he’s out there. We have to deal with who’s out there. There’s nothing we can do about it.”
