He has already been suspended before, so a fine was actually a step back in the process.
agree...he is a classic sociopath, on and off the field. Can't stand his face. (and i live in Michigan)
Isn't Schwartz like his 2nd HC though he has had issues since coming into the league. I think he maybe Bipolar or something.
Chuck Cecil wouldn't last 1 year in today's NFL without getting banned for life. Chuck Cecil made a living on head shots.
Just like a lot of these posters would be singing a different tune if Suh was on the team.
You aren't really suggesting posters here would tolerate/defend Suh's tactics if he was a Cowboy are you?
No, Schwartz became head coach of the Lions in 2009. Suh was drafted in 2010. He may very well be bipolar.
Yes.. he was.
Yes.. they would.
I don't think very many people would condone what Suh has done.
I'm sure some would, .. but most people reaize that what he did and has done is dirty, and has nothing to do with football.
For doing to an o-lineman what they've been doing to defensive lineman for years?
The Broncos won Superbowls off of blocks at the knees on defensive lineman.
I don't see the uproar here personally. O-line guys have done this type of stuff for years and now I'm supposed to cry because a d-line guy did it back to them?
And he's right.
Cowboys fans would be making every excuse in the book for why it was just fine.
Its not just this incident. Hes a dirty player and I dont like that.
You can think what you like, but for me, it's not as much what he did, .. it is when he did it.
He went for the knees, out in the open field, 15 yards behind the play, ... with bad intentions.
Understood. Believe me I'm not telling anyone else how they should or have to feel about it.
As I said above. I'm not telling anyone to feel any certain way about it.
Lets be real here, if you swapped the name of the jersey on that play, we wouldn't even hear about it. The play wasn't even that bad, he's just being judged from past infractions. You can't say he targeted the guy's knee, even from his past history, because if you watch the play it doesn't even seem that way at all.
I can't stand Suh because I think he's a cheap dirty loser, but on that particular play I personally thought Suh knew he couldn't catch up to get in front of him, so he tackled the guy from his left behind side. Regardless, that move he did was stupid and cost his team a TD, hopefully he makes a mistake like that against us.
Also, the people calling for a long suspension are just being ridiculous, there's no way a player should be suspended for THAT play or even fined 100k. If you want to suspend him, then wait till he actually does something dirty, because we all now he will. But that particular play wasn't dirty, not at all.
No doubt about it - no excuse for his play.
What's really odd about Suh is he doesn't have to play dirty. He just seems to have that mindset. He could/ would be dominating without all that other.
He has a mean streak though that is troubling. After year after year of his crap I don't know how even Lion fans can defend him.
Its called a cut block or chop block which are within the rulls. As DL you should expect it. When you are running down field you should not expect a below the knees block that is not accidental that would be called a clip which is illegal. Suh is dirty player and I know for a fact many here would defend him if he was a Cowboy. You would see, "Finally someone that brings attitude to our defense"
Whatever it's called it's a dirty play. Did you see Decastro dive for the DLs leg and take out his teammate Pouncey instead? I guess Pouncey wasn't prepared to be cut blocked from the blindside. Suh's play was questionable at worst and is only illegal based on a newly implemented rule. You can't go high, so he aimed at his waist and missed on a moving target.
I do think Suh is a dirty player, but it is a contact sport, or at least it used to be.
Yes. he should take himself aside and have a talk with himself to straighten himself out (he's one of the team captains).
