Can't hagans appeal his suspension so he can play in green bay?

Considering we are in a dire Olb situation
he's having a hearing today i think?? to determine how long the suspension is/if there is a suspension. can't appeal something that hasn't happened yet.

not making any excuses for him tho. just depends on how they see it. it is a repeat offense, but he was rushing home to his kid. being a father myself, i cant understand why he did it.

you came along late. yes is that not brilliant. they signed a guy to fill a big hole knowing he may not be able to play 1-3 games. but wait they are the whiz kids of the nfl so we dare not question them. its ok, after all miller can play linebacker that should strike fear into the heart of rogers sunday
wait WTF? this dude is 35?

i wouldn't rule out that we find a way to get grant, PW and bowman on the field together. Larry isn't great in coverage, but i'm sure he can set the edge. at least a few snaps a game to spell Aldon or Brooks.

he was speeding and ran a red light. apparently he was out with his wife, got a call about his kid or something. couldn't find his wife, so he left. it was his 2nd DUI.

The details regarding his DUI were the most 'excusable' I've ever read. Im sure he will get a suspension as it is his second, but the NFL may take exception due to the circumstances.

He was at a concert and got the call about his kid. Good excuse but when you make that money call a damn cab.

If its an emergency and we have no one to backup OLB in case of an injury. I'm wondering if they might bump Bowman to the outside and have grant fill in next to Willis for him. Bowman has some experience playing OLB in college if I remember correctly,although it was in a 4-3. I would much rather have them sign Bakhtiari, Alama-Francis, Laboy or someone that knows the 3-4 system as a backup before the game though.

The suspension will not take place until after the Green Bay Game
