There isn't much dispute about whether Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh crossed the line when he stomped on Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith a week ago -- an act that led to a two-game suspension, pending his appeal today.

Barring an unexpected change of heart by the NFL, Suh won't play against the Saints on Sunday night in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

"Well, it looked pretty obvious to me and everybody else," Saints quarterback Drew Brees said when asked for his reaction to Suh's suspension during a conference call with the Detroit news media Wednesday. "If you do something like that, then there is punishment that comes along with it."

Abdul-Quddus actually did his job: separated the ball from the receiver w/o H-to-H contact.
He still got flagged. I think we just have to plan on 1 or 2 of those a game.
The penalty is worth our guys playing at a high level for the full 60 minutes.
Lately, I've seen D-lineman flagged for hitting the QB 1/2 step after release.
The pendulum has swung too far in the other direction.
Soon we'll be seeing a SportsCenter highlight where the QB pump faked, caused the aggressor to pull-up,
then makes a game changing completion because the defender was trying to avoid a flag.
Team ought to pick up the tab, for fines associated with good aggresive football.
Suh is on his own with that BS.

Double edge sword on the hit. Had he not tried to separate the ball and the pass was completed, Williams and I'm sure some other players would have ripped him a new one. Break up the pass with a hard hit and you get a fine and/or suspension from the league. He was in a no win situation.

I loved the hit Abdul- Quddus put on the giants reciever, we might have us a thumper after all. I want to see all of our secondary hit like he did, it would make recievers fear our secondary. I want to see alot more of this guy, that hit made my head hurt. Perfect hit.

Darstep nailed it. 60 minutes of back-cracking defensive play is worth it. And if the hit is not found to be malicious, the team should pick up the tab.

great point alaska, but the nfl has that covered too in what they call a bounty which is against nfl rules. it would belike paying for a great hit.
just saying but the thing about 60 minutes of balls to the wall hustle is what brought us to the superbowl and i totally agree.

A couple of good calls & a LOT of BS calls.

AND why are we even mentioned in the same breath as "a boy named Suh"??

What he did was AFTER the play & CLEARLY malicious. The he lied about it like a 6 year old caought with his hand in the cookie jar!!

It is a violent sport & I think our team plays with a lot of agression.

BUT ever since the Vi-queens whined & cried like a bunch of 12 year old little bee-atches the zebras have been quick to throw the flag!!

If I'm the coach I tell my guys to do precisely what Abdul-Quddus did on that play. Every and all the time. I tell my guys that I will pay the fine. I tell my guys I want WRs to have fear in their hearts when they cross the middle of the field. You make a dirty play and things are different, but when you play solid football and make a solid football play, NFL mamby pamby rules be damned.
