Patriots defensive lineman Jermaine Cunningham was suspended today for four games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
In his report card following the season-opener against the Titans, Ron Borges wrote:
Jermaine Cunningham, now mysteriously bulked up, doubled his career sack total with one and at times slid inside to DT, providing a distinct speed advantage without losing much strength.
When the suspension was announced today, Borges wasted no time in his victory lap:
Pats Jermaine Cunningham just suspended 4 games by NFL for PED violation. SHOCKER!

So how much did Borges know, if anything? Or is this another “even a stopped clock is right twice a day” type of thing?
