    The recent suspension of Seattle Seahawks defensive end Bruce Irvin did not escape the notice of Jim Harbaugh. The San Francisco 49ers coach has kept an eye on the trend of Seahawks players getting suspended.

    "I've definitely noticed it," Harbaugh said in comments distributed by the team. "You don't know what it is. Even when people say what it is, you don't know that that's what it is. For this, throw it out, or it's that. But, that's usually the agents of the players themselves saying it's, for example Adderall.

    "But, the NFL doesn't release what it actually is. So, you have no idea. You're taking somebody at their word, that I don't know that you can take them at their word, understanding the circumstances."

    Harbaugh said what a lot of us think when we hear a player cry "Adderall" after a positive test for a performance-enhancing drug. It's hard to simply accept the word of a player after he just failed a test. And Harbaugh just happen to point out this trend when he was talking about his rival team's biggest offseason issue.

    "Play by the rules," Harbaugh said he told his players. "And you always want to be above reproach. Especially when you're good, because you don't want people to come back and say, they're winning because they're cheating. ... So, we want to be above reproach in everything, and do everything by the rules. Because if you cheat to win, then you've already lost, according to Bo Schembechler. And Bo Schembechler is about next to the word of God as you can get in my mind. It's not the word of God, but it's close."
