    I would love to know what the penalty would be if Suh did the exact same thing to Brady

    I'm telling you, if you haven't watched it you need to. He isn't sorry in the least. Says a quick sorry and then spends the rest of the time blaming refs and everyone else for why he was so frustrated to the point that he pulled this bs stunt. I think his true bully attitude finally showed through.

    You gotta be kidding me. We litterslly never get these breaks. We always get the team whose star is coming back fresh off the suspension.

    I said the same thing last week, the first 2 weeks I've wanted a loss in years and we get two superstars out back to back weeks. So typical.

    Yep, you can see the script develop. Bet on the Steelers to win last night because I knew the refs would help them toward that showdown with NE.
    And the Bengals being Bengals.....

    That game was ridiculous last night with all the cheap shot hits and personal fouls, especially after what happened to Shazier.

    The league better get serious about harsher suspensions etc otherwise they are going to have an out on control probelm on their hands.

    How do you not get ejected after that? Taunted him on top of that. Then Brown gets nailed in the head in the endzone, not sure how he held on to that TD.

    Got to hand in to Gruden last night, he called it out.

    Call me crazy, but I think this bodes well for the Dolphins monday night. They finally got a bit of confidence, Brady struggles a bit without Gronk safety net, the pass rushers always seem to get up for Brady. It hinges on how Cutler does. If they can lean on Drake and minimize Cutler's inefficiencies, I think they have a shot.

    Sadly, I agree.

    What Gronk did was not part of a football play. And it wasn't fighting, it was an attack. He lost his temper? Dude, he lost his temper, saw a guy defenseless on the ground, and decided to ****ing elbow drop the back of his head?

    I'm sorry, to hand out a two game suspension to someone for fighting, but only a one game suspension for that? That's just messed up, man. NHL players have literally been prosecuted for assault for things like that in the past.

    This has nothing to do with the Patriots or the Dolphins. We're going to get dunked on Monday night regardless of whether or not Gronk plays, but man, the NFL's response to this has just been shameful. Suspend him FOR THE YEAR. You know it will just get knocked down on appeal, anyway.

    I hate Gronk. He's such a punchable douchebag. Definitely high priority on my list of players that I root for injury. Don't care what anyone says.

    I bet New England will hold gronk out of the 2nd meeting with a fake injury or “rest” him to avoid Buffalo taking him out.

    I have a feeling that Gronk is shortening his leash with BB. His antics are going to land him in a lot of hot water with him.

    Probably life, given that Suh doing that to Brady would probably kill him.

    So let me get this straight. NFL says that two guys fighting each other -- not football, but at least settling it like men -- is worse than blindsiding a guy while he's on the ground with the full weight of your 260 pound body slamming into the back of his head?

    Or that what Juju did -- taunting and all -- is likewise not as serious as two guys who can't stand each other deciding to tussle?

    Really, Goodell? Really?

    That's what alot of people are complaining about- the inconsistencies just like the refs and the flags or lack of. I have no problem with them coming down really hard for things at this point and beyond, you can't let this continue. They need to be consistent though.

    I would have given Gronk and Juju 4 games each.

    What Gronk did was worse to me because it was outside of football, but what Juju did was reckless, dangerous, and the taunting made it clear that he wasn't trying to deliver a good block, he was trying to remove someone from the game.

    No worries..They'll get a 7th rd jag to score two Tds against us lol They're the only team I can think of who can lose somebody that's "irreplaceable" yet can be replaced somehow. I would love to keep seeing progression from the young guys again this week. Drake, Howard, Tunsil, etc.. played their tails off.

    Ya dude imagine Suh doing that lol Gronk is a dirtbag for what he did. You can really hurt someone like that. A 1 game suspension for almost detaching the dudes brainstem is BS!!! Soon we're going to see weapons on the field..Look at the Crabtree/ Talib fight. AJ Green destroying Ramsey as well. The NFL is quick to call a holding penalty to ruin a drive but doesn't call Mario Edwards punching Fasano twice in the back of the head (And they showed it on replay LOL). This offseason, the NFL needs to look into some sort of technology to help these refs. THEY NEED IT!!

    All true but man did Burfict have it coming. You always hear commentators talk about how nice he is or how good he is to his 2 girls but I wonder if they actually watch him play. He's by far the dirtiest player in football and it was just a matter of time before the Steelers went for payback.

    Watch a replay of the hit Burfict put on Brown in the 2015 playoffs - or any of his highlight reel dirty hits - and tell me you feel bad for him. You play cheap - you wear a target. Maybe he'll think twice about being a dickbag after his head clears up from the concussion.

    And people wonder why he went from a 1st rounder to going undrafted ...

    Oh, absolutely. Burfict is a very dirty player, and even though I believe Juju should be disciplined very harshly, I'm glad he at least did it to Burfict, who is a career punk who's inflicted a lot of injuries with dirty play in his time.

    Exactly. That post immediately above yours is disgraceful, the one quoting some tweet from a clown named Wingfield. Unbelievable that somebody could be biased/dense enough to restrict the evaluation of the JuJu play as a "football hit" without taking it in context. The context was everything. That hit was designed to injure and taunt. It was mostly a technicality what part of the body was used, and what part of the body was struck. The Steelers were desperate for any opportunity to lay out a Bengal. The locker room shouts of "karma...karma" while JuJu was being asked about the play further verifies exactly what was going on.

    I was embarrassed as a USC alum. Schuster should not be allowed to play for the remainder of the season, as far as I'm concerned.

    Different note but because of your post I watched the Kiko hit on Flacco, I missed that game what a shame :=), boy did our guys come flying to his defense. Impressive considering the Bills stood around after the Gronk shot. When the lineman jumped Kiko Suh and friends absolutely pounced on that lineman while Ravens walked away. Maybe our locker room is pretty tight?

    That is what happens in the NRL (National Rugby League) in Australia. The player is say suspended for 1 game but has the right to appeal. If he is successful, he gets no suspension but if he is still found guilty by the tribunal, he is suspended for an extra game. Net effect, the teams and the players know that they have to have a great case to appeal and succeed. Generally very few players bother to appeal.
    This is a much better system with consequences for unsuccessful frivolous appeals.

    I would line to see Suh pull a Gronk on Brady. But, Suh would probably be banded for life.
