My wife is a Psychiatrist at the "last stop" psych hospital in New York state and has diagnosed and prescribed for every mental issue imaginable a thousand times over.
So I described Burfict's issues to her, loss of focus, flareups, ridiculous penalties at times, and on and on. I asked what she would prescribe for those symptoms that would not take away his edge, bursts of speed and power etc.
Surprisingly, her answer was amphetamines. I won't go into all the details of why but here is the question:
If it's a legitimately prescribed medication to treat a diagnosed disease and help him retain focus, would the NFL let him play?
It's no longer an illegal drug, but it might be a banned substance even in legitimate cases. Any of our rules wizards have an answer?
The FAs are awesome but the draft doesn't inspire me. I like Burfict, but the idea of Burfict is better than actually getting him as he is. The way he is right now the earliest I'd pick him is the third...
How about this:
1 - Cordy Glenn RT
2 - Lamarr Miller RB
3 - Robert Lester FS
Early Doucet WR - Don't really like Meachem either, and meh on Edwards too. Get someone on the way up.
Laron Landry SS
Robert Mathis DE/LB mostly we'll just call him Pass Rusher
