They say that teams take on the personality of their coaches. In Detroit, where coach Jim Schwartz engaged in a little post-game shove last week, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh unleashed a big post-play shove on Sunday against the Falcons.
Joe Hawley felt the brunt of it, hitting the deck abruptly after Suh’s gave him a two-armed push.
Amazingly, referee Bill Leavy didn’t throw a flag, even though he was right there when it happened.
Maybe the NFL will issue a memo about acceptable post-play behavior this week, and next week it would be a penalty.
