Are Pat Williams and the other one (forgot his first name) suspended for the first 4 games or not. I thought I heard they were.
If they were, I would think that would generate more talk on this board as they play the Fins week 2. Am I wrong? Because if they are not there it will make running the ball that much easier.

I think you can count on them being on the field. They are part of a group of players with a good attorney or two who seem immune to any sanction.

You're right my man. They are currently suspended for 4 games.

Quote:
A Minnesota judge ruled Thursday that Vikings defensive tackles Kevin and Pat Williams must serve four-game suspensions stemming from the StarCaps case. The two are expected to appeal the ruling.

The case will likely be taken to the state Court of Appeals. From there, the losing party could appeal to the state Supreme Court. The Williamses will ask to be able to play during the appeal process as they continue to argue that the NFL didn't allow them to explain their use of StarCaps. If the Williams Wall does end up missing four games, it's a big blow to the Vikings. Jimmy Kennedy and Fred Evans would be thrust into major roles.


That's coming from Rotoworld.

If they do end up being suspended for Miami's game against them it will be a huge loss for Minnesota...no pun intended. The Vikes match up well with just about everyone in the league, but without their wall Miami should be able to pound them right up the middle and not worry about that ravenous pass rush.

I didn't expect any different. Bet they don't see a single suspension day.

I had not thought about it but you make a good point!
