    EVERY team in the NFL was less than 50% last year.

    Barnwell is full of praise for Detroit, the last part of the article as all about how great the Lions played.

    I like how he stated that they shot themselves in the foot so much, that they shot their foot off.

    That.............is my loveable Lions to a tee...............:gaah:

    I think Suh was lucky to not miss any games. The big fine was because of his frequent flyer status.

    Is he as bad as everyone makes him out to be?
    I saw him stomp that Packer dude a few years ago but he doesn't seem like the "dirtiest player in the NFL.

    I don't watch football as much as you guys so...

    He seems to be singled out for stuff that other players get away with on a weekly basis. Yeah his rep proceeds him, but he is an aggressive player and that play in question may have been just a penalty to another player without the fines controversy etc. I know it's a new rule, so the league may as well levy a fine on the games most notorious player to set a precedent for the season.

    Hopefully Suh had some incentive written his contract that he gets another $75K per game if he made team captain.....just to offset any potential fines...:icon evil:

    Looks like he got his head in front.
    $100K is like $25K to most players.

    Suh is a talented young player that needs more self-discipline and the coaching staff needs to help. After the game, Schwartz said he wouldn't "apologize for anything his team did." Purely amateur statement. Are the Lions trying to build a reputation as a dirty team? If so, the coach is helping.

    When he stomped that player on Thanksgiving, his facial expression said it all.
    He APPEARED to be a vicious man out of control.
    The league will target him every game from now on...........

    I'd like to believe it is that simple...but I really think it's more than just stupidity.

    I can't defend him.
    he's a very deal able asset, we could move on without him, in the AFC.

    He's the team captain....not sure if it was appointed by coaching or voted on by the players. With that position, he has to lead by example, be more responsible and show some discipline.

    Because I know where you live, and I have visited there a couple of times. In the summer of course.
