Sometimes doing the wrong thing is the only way to get your team fired up. The Lions just saw their rookie 2nd overall pick try to tear someone's head off. It's hard to ignore it and hard not to get fired up about it.
It's a lot easier to miss someone being shoved from behind or a really nice tackle at the line of scrimmage. But when I see the highest paid player on the team (or atleast the defense) hit someone with enough force to go BOOM, I want to do it too.
On another note, Nicklas Backstrom is amazingly good.
Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.
So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!
[QUOTE=nepg;2273608]That a fight didn't break out from that between the linemen is a serious issue if I'm a Browns fan.[QUOTE]
agreed. suh threw there teammate and leader into the ground and hurt him and they did nothing. no reaction. no one so much as flinched. that team is going no where in a hurry. granted i think i wouldve went over and kicked him if i were a browns player because i think he sucks but hey. still, you gotta worry if youre a browns fan, i really dont see how this can be contrued in a good light in any way.

Orton will never be in the same class as the Drew Brees or the Peyton Mannings or the Tom Bradys of the world. Kevin Kolb has the potential to be that kind of player.
Suspending him? Not like he ripped the dude's helmet and tried to curb him. The play was more stupid than anything. You love to see a good hit, but you want it to be a good, clean hit and one that happens before the whistle.
The bigger deal to me in this whole thing was the fact if not for that play, Suh's play in the game was otherwise nondescript. He didn't really do anything.
3rd round rookie Shawn Lauvao had a nice game against him.
Except a sack a game would 16 for the year. Suh showed decently for a rookie who was doubled almost every play by the Browns.
It's not my job to really worry about whether I hit a guy too hard or not,
"I know this is a different league and you get fined for these things, but I don't know," he said. "That's their decision and something that I am going to have to live with. But I can't change the way I play. If I do, then I am doing a disservice to my teammates.
"Obviously, I am not going to go wild and hit quarterbacks in the head as hard as I can or try to do something stupid. But I am going to continue to play hard. I've slung quarterbacks before and got a personal foul and I've slung quarterbacks before and didn't get a personal foul. That's what the referee is out there for."
Vilma - Should a team lead by Rex Ryan and one that employs the "We are gonna try to hurt him" Bart Scott be one to preach about on-field ethics?
That's a completely and utterly ridiculous comment. Why would the team that he follows have anything to do with this?
From now on, any time you say anything else about another team's weakness, or possible character traits, first evaluate whether the team you are a fan of is better than that team. If they aren't, your input is worthless. :roll:
