No Suh, I Don’t Like It

Detroit Lions tackle Ndamukong Suh is no stranger to trading paycheck money for Blitz: The League 2-style necksnapping and ballpopping. The league fined him $7,500 for his hit on Jake Delhomme and 15K for his forearm strike (or “two-hand shiver”) to the back of Jay Cutler’s sad head.

Friday night’s game between the Lions and the Cincinnati Bengals happened, and Suh did not react kindly to Richie Cunningham in the pocket. Take a look for yourself.

The NFL hasn’t released any official statement on the hit or the fine, but Ndamukong’s Twitter update has given us an important clue. See if you can figure it out.


Exclamation points aside, you can’t grab a quarterback by the head and sling blade him to the ground anymore. That’s how modern football is gonna work. Mathematically he’s doing well, as precedent suggests his previous fine should’ve been doubled, which would’ve left him paying 30-thousand instead of 20. The next hit will cost even more, and after that comes an oral warning. After that, three written warnings, and after that he could be suspended. I think that’s how it works.

Regardless, remind me to never let this guy hold my head.
