NFL won't act on Suh immediately

Don't expect the NFL to act on the reprehensible foot stomp by Ndamukong Suh this week.

An NFL spokesman told me that plays from Week 12 to be reviewed for potential discipline will be done so under the league's normal guidelines after the completion of all games. Repeat: all games.

So no decision until, at the earliest, Tuesday and likely after that.

Based on information from several league sources few would be surprised if Suh was suspended for at least several games and possibly the remainder of the season. The NFL is understandably angry. The dirty cheap shot happened during one of the league's most visible days.

Really?  Because down by the goalline after failing on 3rd down, Suh gives you this opportunity to continue the drive, you don't react and get a penalty to negate that advantage. Its all the Packers O-Line has been talking about is how great a job Dietrich-Smith did of not retaliating

I have said what I think. There is precedent. haynesworth got 5 games and he didn't have a background of dirty play before that .This guy should get at least that. But here is my question. My team mate gets his head bounced on the turf 3 times and when I pull the guy off him he turns and stomps on him. What do I do? I tell you what I don't do and that is nothing. The three Packers that just let him walkj away need their as kicked too. One or more of them should have laid him out. HE will get  fine and a suspension of some tyoe no doubt, and it will be the right thing to do, but getting your ass whipped on national TV, and then reading for two weeks how everyone in the world says your sisy ass deserved it? Priceless.

@  hey if you had a dumb owner like we do over here in detroit and have matt milen be your GM for 10 yrs that only drafts WR with thier 1st round picks then we would have depth, sad thing we dont even have depth at wr lol. you were saying they are fading away like yesterdays jeans, why? if you ask me they are growing you cant fade when you havnt had a winning record in 10 yrs and are 7-4 this late in the season. i had them pegged for 8-8 this yr and they might get there or might not but for some reason everyone thinks they are good or great and if you ask me they are over achieving. its great to see that we have someone that can GM around here but we have way to many holes right now and young. so to fade is not the case for detroit like it always is for dallas and usually it is because romo gets hurt. hey i love murry his is kicking butt for me in my fantasy league.

Hoopsisbest, still showing he is a complete idiot, he apparantly thinks it is ok to slam a guys head into the ground over and over again, or the "mild" stomping of an arm. I'm aware of what football cleats are like and they can still puncture skin with enough force if hit at the right angle you complete moron. Just because the other player wasn't injured doesn't make it ok to do. You are by far the biggest idiot I have seen on here.

Did I say Romo was better than Stafford?  I'm a fan during the good times and bad, not a band wagoner like most, and can admit it when we're not great (like this year).  Green Bay will go undefeated and win the Super Bowl barring injury, so I think all other teams are irrelevant this year.  Good teams have people that can step up like Robinson and Murray so the Cowboys haven't fallen too far through their injuries.  I haven't looked it up, but I would be willing to bet Romo is more durable than Stafford.  I'll let you look it up so you can get off on the chance I might be wrong.

It is the team's repsonsibility to discipline this animal.  If they can't do it, the NFL must step in.  Who cares anyway; this is the Lions we are talking about.  Just because they got off to a good start this year, doesn't mean they are relevant team.  They are already fading away like your acid wash jeans.  Make an example of this clown.  Let's start the Stafford injury countdown to make them even more worthless.

Ban him from the NFL and take Detroit's #1 pick next year.  


Right ! What a great idea !! Let's temporarily destroy a franchise because one of its players did something stupid.  That almost makes sense.  Thanks for your input !  You are awesome !!

Watch what you write!

"Where were you during the Lions/Bears game??  Why weren't you ridiculing DJ Moore for going after Stafford and blocking him all the way down the field while two Lions ran right past him to make a play on the guy who intercepted the ball???"


Moore was running a soft stalk block on Stafford the entire pick runback.  He could have taken him on a lot more aggressively but chose to simply lock on and screen Stafford from making an attempted tackle (not that he would have based on his previous pick). We all know what Stafford did next (out of frustration) but guilty just the same.  Moore's retaliation was clearly justified but the refs saw his actions as a personel foul and he was nailed for it.   What no one seems to want to talk about but you mention in your reply to whitebread is the end of the pick runback and the " two Lions ran right past him to make a play on the guy who intercepted the ball ".  That was the missed call!  The dude was 5 yards out of bounds when they took him down!
