NFL reportedly will work with NFLPA on marijuana study

Maybe the NFL is finally coming around to the idea of players using medicinal marijuana.

The Washington Post reported Monday that the league has offered to work with the NFLPA to study the potential use of marijuana as a pain management tool for players.

“Then you might miss one game, and then you get two and a half, then you’ve got 10 in five games right there. Then if you go three, two, three, it’s definitely doable.”

It would be a ridiculous accomplishment, since Michael Strahan set the current record back in 2001 with 22 1/2 sacks in a season. At this point, the most sacks Miller has gotten in a year is 18 1/2.

Miller added the player would have to be cool as a cucumber under pressure, since extra attention will be on him. That means other teams will be paying close attention and will try to stop him.

“Teams are going to chip you, that’s definite, that’s just the gospel right there,” Miller said. “But you’ve got to take advantage of those opportunities. If you get five open rushes, you’ve got to win all five of those rushes. Out of five you might get two or three sacks out of those, that’s the math that I have.

“Out of all the rushes in the game, all of the plays in the game, out of those five plays, you’ve got to get home on those plays. It’s definitely doable.”

“Every week, we ran the same defense,” Ramsey said after the team’s Week 17 loss, via ESPN. “We never changed defenses. We never changed plays. What we were running on first down at Cheap Ireland Jerseys the beginning of the season we were running on first down at the end of the season. What we were running Cheap Jerseys 90 on second down, third down, same. Nothing ever changed.”

Even with those problems — which safety Tashaun Gipson echoed — the Jaguars defense finished No. 6 in yards allowed. After adding Bouye, Calais Campbell, and Barry Church in the offseason, it promises to be even better in 2017.
