So the question is, will they be able to usurp OSU's dominance in the Big 10

(Actually, I think he should be suspended for the next six games).

Well Suh won his appeal....no suspension... Just has to cut a $70,000 dollar personal check to I assume the Aaron Rodgers leg and foot massage fund.

+1, disgusting! The Lions won't get far anyway. Too bad, Stafford seems like a good egg.

Yes, but Lions plus 7 with that stout D now intact with Dallas being 4-4 at home is a very tempting bet!

He was acquitted. Better hope he doesn't see this and sue you for slander. Nevermind. He doesn't have internet where he lives.

The way Dallas has been playing lately, I wouldn't make that bet. I admit it is a possibility though.

I know that you posters here are wondering how I did in the ESPN pigskin pick'em. I finished in the top 8.1%. Yay! duck!! There were only 40,339 people ahead of me (true). That's an awful lot of people who made lucky guesses.

Maybe $20 at most. I wouldn't trust either team for more than that!

Looks like Suh won't get suspended after all but only pay a 70K fine

Quote:
While Rodgers did not say explicitly that he thought Suh's actions were intentional, he did have serious doubts as to how they could be viewed as accidental.

"The only thing I can say is if you step on something in your everyday life or if you step on somebody on the field," Rodgers said Tuesday, "the first reaction seems to be looking back and maybe apologizing with your hands or maybe pulling your foot back right away, and I'm just not sure that's what happened on Sunday."
Ndamukong Suh of Detroit Lions wins appeal, will play in playoff game vs. Dallas Cowboys - ESPN

If it weren't the playoffs, the suspension would have stuck but it's money time and don't want anyone to be saying that America's Team had any help from NFL head office to make it out of the first round. Detroit's defence (especially with Suh) is pretty formidable and frankly, it seems to me that anything can happen with Romo at the helm. Should be entertaining either way.

If I was a betting person (which I'm not), I'd stay away from the Lions-Cowboys game. Stafford and Romo come playoff time both have had their problems.

About the Suh, no suspension. Well, I guess it was less obvious then his teammate the week before against the Bears

It's crazy that there is not even a game suspension. Not even for stepping not once but twice on the biggest star of the NFL who already has a gimpy leg.

For sure, the NFL fails again in handling this habitual offender. At least the NFL is consistent in screwing up all such bad behaviors, including spouse/GF abuse.
