Ndamukong Suh Gets Ejected After Bonehead Play. Packers Spank The Lions 27-15

Ndamukong Suh Gets Kicked Out Of Game As Packers Dump The Lions 27-15

Ndamukong Suh Kicks The Packers' Evan Dietrich-Smith And Is Sent To The Showers

First, let me say “Happy Thanksgiving everybody!” Today’s NFL game on FOX featured the Detroit Lions vs. the Green Bay Packers. The Packers came into the game with a 10-0 record and the Lions were at 7-3.

The game was close early on, with Green Bay only leading 7-0 at half time but the Packers pulled away in the second half, primarily by some stupid penalties by the young Detroit Lions team and some picks thrown by Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.

The Lions found out the hard way that if you give Aaron Rodgers and the Packers extra first downs, they will make you pay. And that’s what happened in the second half. But the play of the game may have been when Ndamukong Suh got thrown out because of a bonehead play on his part.

Suh had the Packers Evan Dietrich-Smith on the ground and was trying to slam his head into the turf about three times. Then Ndamukong Suh started kicking Dietrich-Smith as he was lying on the ground. The refs immediately threw Suh out of the game. The Lions second year defensive tackle will be hearing from the league office very soon and he may end up with a suspension as well. It was a dirty play no doubt about it!

Ndamukong Suh has been accused of being a dirty player in his young NFL career and this incident today seems to verify that fact. Suh has said that he is not dirty but when you see what he did today, it makes you wonder. Suh’s act really hurt his Lions team because it gave the Packers a first down and an eventual score.

There is little question that Suh is a great young player and may be headed to a hall of fame career, but he has got to control his emotions on the field. After that play, the Packers went on to roll the Lions 27-15.

Aaron Rodgers was 22 for 32 and passed for 307 yards with 2 touchdowns and zero interceptions. On the other side, the Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had a miserable day. Stafford passed for 276 yards with a touchdown, but he also threw 3 killer interceptions. You have to give the kid credit though because he is playing with a bad finger and was wearing protective gloves. On Fox’s pre-game show today, Terry Bradshaw was showing how Stafford is trying to grip and throw the football basically with only four fingers. With today’s game, the Green Bay Packers improve their NFL best record to 11-0 and the Detroit Lions fall to 7-4.

Surprise Teams Of The 2011 NFL Season

The Surprise NFL Teams As We Enter NFL Week 9

Matthew Stafford Has His Detroit Lions sitting at 6-2 Entering week 9

The NFL season is in high gear as we enter Week 9 later today. There have been a few surprise teams so far in this 2011 campaign. One of the biggest surprise teams is the Buffalo Bills, who have a record of 5-2 and are tied atop the AFC East with the New England Patriots!

Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick And The Bufallo Bills Have Been A Huge Surprise In 2011

And what about the Cincinnati Bengals? They lose their quarterback Carson Palmer (Later traded to Oakland) at the beginning of the season and yet they are also sitting on a 5-2 record and only one game back of Pittsburgh
in the AFC North Division.

The Detroit Lions were thought to be an up and coming team entering the 2011 season. But they are a young team and some NFL experts thought it might be another year or two before they turn the corner. It looks like they have turned the corner earlier than expected. The Lions have a record of 6-2 entering week 9 and are sitting in second place behind Green Bay in the NFC North Division. With young stars like Matthew Stafford, Jahvid Best, Nick Fairley, Ndamukong Suh and Calvin Johnson, their future looks bright. Funny how the Lions got good once they dropped GM Matt millen, who in my opinion may have been the worst GM in the history of the NFL. I’m sure Lions’ fans will agree with me on that one.

Now to my favorite team if you don’t mind! I have been a San Francisco 49ers’ fan since I was a kid in the late 70′s. Just letting you know so you don’t think I’m a bandwagon jumper!

Has 49ers' Quarterback Alex Smith Finally Turned The Corner?

I didn’t know what to expect from the Niners coming into this 2011 NFL season. They had just hired a new head coach in Jim Harbaugh. But the biggest thing that I was worried about (I still am a little) was our quarterback Alex Smith. It goes without saying that Smith has been a major bust in his first six years in the NFL. But maybe, just maybe he is starting to turn things around. Alex Smith has thrown 9 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions through the first seven games of the season. I know those numbers aren’t Peyton Manning or Tom Brady type stats, but considering how bad he has been in the past, it’s pretty good. The one thing Alex Smith is doing is he seems to be staying away from mistakes. Hopefully he can keep it up as he and the san Francisco 49ers are 6-1 and sit atop the NFC West division at the moment.

Should be a fun 2011 NFL season the rest of the way unless you’re a Colts’ fan.

The San Francisco 49ers ended the Detroit Lions undefeated season yesterday as Alex Smith threw a late, clutch fourth down 6-yard touchdown pass to Delanie Walker. The TD pass gave the Niners a 22-19 lead. The 49ers later added a field goal and went on to win by the score of 25-19, handing the Detroit Lions their first loss of the season.

Jim Harbaugh And Jim Schwartz Go At It After 49ers Beat Lions 25-19

But the game itself has taken a back seat to a bigger story. 49ers’coach Jim Harbaugh and Lions’ coach Jim Schwartz had a heated argument as they met for the customary handshake¬† at mid-field after the game.

Harbaugh was dancing and yelling and celebrating his team’s victory as he was approaching Schwartz. As Schwartz reached out his hand to Harbaugh, the Niners’ coach grabbed it and kind of flung Jim Schwartz to the side. This, obviously, did not sit well with Schwartz because he followed Jim Harbaugh off the field and seemed to be yelling and cursing at the Niners’ head coach. The two coaches had to be separated by players and security as the argument heated up. You can see in the video that Harbaugh did not back down as he also started exchanging heated words toward Schwartz.

So, who is at fault here, really? Is it Schwartz or Harbaugh? Well, all I can say is that Jim Harbaugh is a fiery coach and all he was doing was celebrating a HUGE win by his 49ers’ team. I don’t think he meant any disrespect toward Jim Schwartz at all. Schwartz took it the wrong way, I believe.

Is Jim Schwartz being a hypocrite? It sure seems like it. If you recall, Jim Schwartz also showed some huge emotion with a fist pump in a few of his team’s wins earlier this season that seemed to rub the opposing teams the wrong way. If you dish it out, you have to take it too, Mr. Jim Schwartz!

God, I hope these two teams end up meeting in the playoffs. That would be a football fans dream. It would be very interesting to see what develops as Harbaugh and Schwartz would meet once again at mid-field. This little rivalry isn’t over by a long shot, In my opinion.

The Lions loss dropped them to 5-1 and the 49ers improved their record to 5-1 and first place in the NFC West. If you haven’t got the chance to see it yet, you can view the Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz heated exchange video by clicking here.
