Borges Alludes To Cunningham Using Steroids

Ron Borges is at it again. In his Report Card column in the Boston Herald, specifically in the Defensive Line segment, he stated the following: "...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...": http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/football/patriots/view/20220911patriots_report_card/
Hey Ron...isn't it possible that Cunningham being bulked up isn't so mysterious? I mean, don't you think that it's possible that hard work and loads of time in the weight room could be the not so mysterious cause? Apparently, BB does:
"...Belichick noted that Cunningham’s improvement began late last season and continued into the offseason, when he won one of the team awards for his dedication to workouts.
“I think one of the things that affected Jermaine, like it did a lot of players, is not really having the offseason that he had this year,” Belichick said. “He didn’t have that opportunity prior to the 2011 season, and after the ’10 season. At the end of the season, he had surgery on his shoulder, and that limited his offseason that year.
“One of the things that’s really helped Jermaine this year was right from the beginning, leaving at the end of last year when he was on IR, he trained very hard, he worked hard on all the aspects of his physical conditioning — strength, explosion, flexibility — all that. He had a real good offseason, had a good spring, that offseason led into a good spring, a good spring led into a good training camp, good training camp led into some production in the preseason and the first regular-season game,” the coach said.
“I think it’s just a combination of a lot of days of hard work, a lot of sweat, a lot of work in the weight room, a lot of technique work on the field,” Belichick said of Cunningham’s improvement. “All that has made him a better football player in a lot of different areas. I don’t know if it was any one thing or just waving a magic wand; it was just day after day of hard work, and he’s just at a higher level than where he has been.”: http://www.providencejournal.com/sports/patriots/content/20120911-cunninghams-third-year-looking-like-a-charm.ece
Just another hatchet job by the plagiarizer Borges...who apparently doesn't believe that one can get ahead on his own merits, through perseverance and hard work.
