Flozell could face more than fines

When we posted news regarding Cowboys tackle Flozell Adams’ third fine in as many weeks, many of you wondered why the NFL doesn’t just suspend the man.

According Bob Glauber of Newsday, the NFL threatened to do so if Adams continues to incur penalties in a letter sent to Adams this week.  The letter included this passage:  “Future infractions of the type you have committed can lead to increased disciplinary action up to and including suspension.”

Glauber points out that the language is typical for players who repeatedly get fined. 

But Adams’ practices have put him in the spotlight more than most, and any more trips, leg whips could have Adams missing more than a chunk of his paycheck.

UPDATE: Adams is officially probable with a shoulder injury for Sunday’s game against Denver.  Marion Barber is also probable.

    Keep on doing what you do, Flo.

    Cue VoxVeritas. “The NFL can’t touch Flozell Adams, have you seen how long his arms are?”

  3. VoxVerítas says: Oct 2, 2009 5:57 PM

    This time next week, he’ll be suspended.
    He doesn’t appear to be very bright.

    Oh son…you would say something dumb like that!

    Flo ?
    Kiss my grits !

    yeah of course; knew I could count on your ignorance for another dallas choke-boy post… keep doing what youre doing?? um..how about learning to PASS BLOCK like even the most average lineman can do on a regular basis..
    but I get it..youre boy, Tony OH-NO another pick, can barely manage a game without getting pressure, so yeah, he does need the help of a fat slow lineman who needs to do a leg whip or trip to prevent Romo from throwing a pick six when Witten isnt wide open… at least he doesnt have to leg whip when the Dallas Choke-boys hand off 50times a game since that will be the only way they have a shot at winning.

    It’s gotta be hard defending this scumbag. Gotta dig deep, like Jerry.

    @andrew61083, very nice man.

  9. MastaFace says: Oct 2, 2009 6:45 PM

    Prediction:
    Flo earns a trifecta (penalty, fine, suspension)
    Denver’s D holds Tony OhNo to 10 points
    Vox continues to defend the indefensible
    Florio writes a Farve article

  10. Borg30 says: Oct 2, 2009 6:49 PM

    Good, suspend him at least two games.

    ————————————————————————–
    Nope, but I believe it. I have seen him stretch out those legs, and they are LONG! Maybe he can’t help it; he was just stretching.
    Seriously though, he should have been suspended already. The league has been sending mixed messages for too long, and the players laugh at these small fines. I have heard at least two or three players who were fined this year say something along the lines of: “I don’t care, I will continue to do it.” Last year, same story. Heck, on an unrelated matter, Ocho basically dared the NFL to fine him, saying he would match the fine and send it to charity.
    It should be obvious to everyone that the players do not care about the fines. They do not affect them one way or another, and do not act as a deterrent. The ONLY way to get through to these guys is to suspend them when they do things like this repeatedly. Fine them once, maybe twice, then suspend them. Since the players do not care about fines, and the clubs do not care if a player is fined, this is the only way to go. THEY will care about being suspended, the FANS will care that they were suspended, and the CLUBS will care. The coaches and fans will be all over a player that continues blatant and dangerous moves like this.
    The league says it cares about the health of players. They hold up all the QB protection rules as proof. It is only proof that they care about those seat filling quarterbacks. Adopt this kind of punishment for repeat offenders of dangerous moves like this, and you will FINALLY be sending the right message. Heck, you suspend someone for four games for taking a supplement that isn’t even on your banned substances list, yet only fine players who repeatedly use illegal moves that endanger the health of other football players. Time to get real Goodell. Be the man you pretend to be when you stand behind that podium.

    hahahaha good one andrew

  14. Bleed Green says: Oct 2, 2009 7:01 PM

    i give him 3 weeks tops before getting suspended. its just muscle memory and he is so bad that he’s gotten so used to having to trip to succeed… he probably doesn’t even realize he does it, at least not until its too late

    Man, Vox, it’s funny how you have your own followers. They must have no life. If you guys want Vox’s cock, just come out and say it.

  16. FoozieGrooler says: Oct 2, 2009 7:05 PM

    Just ignore Vox.
    It’s the way of the troll. Once they stop receiving the attention they crave, they move on.

    @JJARED1101
    I just want to make sure my precious Voxxy isn’t getting into any trouble here on the intraweb. I already had to take his internet privileges away once for looking at dirty websites. Mommy doesn’t want precious corrupting his already fragile and Romo-delusional mind any further.
    Can you blame a mother???

  18. VoxVeritas says: Oct 2, 2009 7:54 PM

    “um..how about learning to PASS BLOCK like even the most average lineman can do on a regular basis..”
    Osi Umentiora. Justin Tuck. Julius Peppers. 0 sacks.
    You just keep your man clean, fat boy. There’s people out there doing worse than tripping geeks in the lunch line.

    “Man, Vox, it’s funny how you have your own followers.”
    This is the one and only me. It should be easy to tell, I’m the only one of the Vox variations with better than a fifth grade vocabulary. And impeccable spelling. “VoxVeritas”, no spaces, standard character set. Anything else is just a wannabe.

    Wow.
    You even role play it, too? This is one of the saddest things i’ve seen in a while.

  21. VoxVeritas says: Oct 2, 2009 8:06 PM

    Well the good thing is that Flo will be ready to skunk Dumervil, assuming they don’t move him around much. They can afford to lose Flo for the Chiefs game, I think Doug Free would do fine against them.

    It’ll never happen. Watch, I’ll tell them myself. Just ignore me. Once I stop receiving the attention I crave, I’ll move on.

    “Cue VoxVeritas. “The NFL can’t touch Flozell Adams, have you seen how long his arms are?”
    He does, he’s like a fat Manute Bol only not as tall. And they can’t hold his shoes, size 23 Bruno Magli shoes, and they trip on his big Bruno shoes.

  24. Snowman2008 says: Oct 2, 2009 8:55 PM

    Better than a suspension…He sticks out his leg again, but Tuck steps on it, snapping it in two.
    Vox posts 60 consecutive comments about how dirty the Giants are.
    Priceless.

  25. ItalianArmyGuy says: Oct 2, 2009 9:02 PM

    Flozell like T.Rex
    Couldn’t get arms past stomach
    Tripping more easy

    Well Vox, to shed some information on your turd o-lineman…Your Girls came in ranked at a “surprising” 1st place when it comes to offensive penalties in the 08′ season. (64/462 yrds). Your ovverated Flozzel believe it or not made the ESPN “all flag team” and is on a steady pace to earn that title once more this year…with his fines already racking up to roughly $25,000 currently this season. (Tripping Tuck, kicking Osi in the 4th, and a recent fine of $7,500 for kicking Peppers in the recent “Exciting” win you guys had Monday. This dude is trash, if you could win trips to Hawaii for the PB over penalties he would be rollin G5 style.
    Turd.

  27. SmackMyVickUp says: Oct 2, 2009 10:07 PM

    Not likely he will sit any games.

  28. Bigbluefan says: Oct 2, 2009 10:10 PM

    Flush and flo must go
    He has caused unneeded harm to players by his cheap shots
    And while the Giants D have few if any Sacks they are the #1 Ranked D in the NFL so I guess fewest points allowed means more then sacks
    Sacks do not get you to the bowel only winning does Osi and Tuck may not have any sacks but they both have nice shiny rings and are 3-0 for the year
    More importantly they helped ruin the grand opening of the worlds biggest waffle house cowpie field

    I really hope they don’t suspend him. He is always good for some penalties which push the Cowgirls even further away from the end zone. Which in turn leads to swell plays like this:

    Excellent, just keep ‘em clean, Flo. Let Winston Justice be a good citizen, the Eagirls backup QB is better than their starter, just ask Desean Jackson.
    “This dude is trash”
    No, Michael Vick is trash. Learn the difference between a human trash felon and a Pro Bowl offensive tackle.

    He’s also good for skunking Giants pass rushers. Which in turn leads to games like this:

    i dont think anyone in the world wants Vox’s cock..
    its just fun watching ignorance lead the charge at every cowboy article..
    and its hard to ignore the biggest, whiniest mouth in the room–its usually the one that gets punched there in real life, but you can easilly sidestep that by coming to profootballtalk and posting nonsense.
    and the real vox can talk at higher than a 5th grade level; he is also continually logged in, because..well, his own life is just to painful to get back to.

    It’s all he’s got to cling to.
    Why else do you think he spends all his time trashing every other team?
    btw… Romo was never a good QB, and it’s unlikely he ever will be. Total choker.
