On Saturday, Lions rookie defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh grabbed the face mask of Browns quarterback Jake Delhomme, twisted his head like it was a cork in a champagne bottle, and then threw Delhomme to the ground.
On Monday, the man who would have benefited the most from an injury to Jake Delhomme said that Suh should be suspended.
“He already face masked him, then he grabs him by the neck, twists it and
throws him down,” Wallace told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “To me, that’s something you can get
suspended for, I think. . . . I understand the face mask part. But he horse collared him and threw him
down. We laughed about it, but that stuff can get people really hurt.”
We’re not prepared to call for Suh to be suspended. But we think that he should be fined heavily, and that if he keeps playing that way he eventually should be suspended.
We also think that Lions fans are glad that they finally have someone on the team who will grab the face mask of a quarterback, twist his head like it was a cork in a champagne bottle, and then throw the quarterback to the ground.
