but postseason ban would have been Authentic Shannon Sharpe Jersey ridiculous
If Cowboys fans were surprised to learn Tuesday that their John Elway Broncos Jersey team has to deal Shannon Sharpe Jersey with Detroit's massive defensive tackle, Ndamukong Suh, that's understandable.
If they think that's unfair, they're wrong.
I was watching the fourth quarter of Green Bay Detroit while writing my Cowboys column in Washington on Sunday when Suh stepped on the leg of Packers Authentic John Elway Jersey quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He didn't jump on it. He didn't even appear to try to put his full weight on it. But if he gets suspended for that, it's lame.
Suh is, without question, a dirty player. He has proven it time and again. He has met with commissioner Roger Goodell to try to convince him that he's misunderstood, only to revert to behavior that gets him fined and suspended.
I just don't think the punishment here missing a playoff John Elway Jersey game fit the crime. I don't doubt that he caused Rodgers some degree of pain, but it wasn't the sort of thing that was going to cause him to leave the field for so much as a play. Given the nature of the game, this was a misdemeanor.
I said in a Dallas Morning News chat Monday that I thought Suh should be fined and suspended for the 2014 season opener. Missing a regular season game would Shannon Sharpe Broncos Jersey be an extreme punishment for this act. Removing him from a post season game seemed ridiculous.
Fox's Mike Pereira, the former NFL referee, said if it weren't for the names Suh and Rodgers on the jerseys, it wouldn't even have deserved a 15 yard penalty.
Other than the fact it makes the key battle between NFL leading rusher DeMarco Murray and the league's No. 1 run defense more intriguing, the interesting thing in the punishment and appeal is the lack of presence of Goodell.
Merton Hanks handed out the punishment Monday. Ted Cottrell, picked to preside over the hearing by both the league and players association, reduced the penalty to a $70,000 fine.
