Six players were suspended for doping by the NFL. Pat and Kevin Williams, the (unrelated) blocks of granite in Minnesota's run defense - suspended. An aging RB for the Saints, plus two defensive ends - suspended. And Bryan Pittman - suspended.
Bryan Pittman, the backbone of the Houston Texans, who had not missed a game since his 2003 debut, is gone. Who - tell me, who - will fill his shoes at long snapper? More to the point: was a long snapper really taking steroids? What for? The better to snap you with, my dear?
