    Such BS that hit during the play vs what Gronk did!! no comparison!! If juju=1 Gronks got to be 4, after play he loads up and clocks a player already on the ground!! WTF

    I wonder how many "unnecessary roughness" helmet shots are called every single week...... if there are others that didn't get suspended, then I'd say there's room for appeal.

    My first post.
    I ordered my JuJu t-shirt as my Christmas gift to self last week.
    If he appeals, how long can he push off the suspension? My guess is if he appeals and loses he will have to serve it for the Pats game instead of Ravens. Is that correct?

    Burfict's kick has no bearing on the bull**** from last night. Neither does any other hit from previous years. The simple fact of the matter is the Steelers and Bengals have been playing stupid dirty football for too long. It has to stop. Over 1,000 yards in penalties between those two teams in 6 games.

    Yep. In real time, it’s a straight head on collision. In slow motion, it’s exactly the same.

    Helmet to helmet I could see a case for (though I’d disagree with it). But there was no blindsiding, other than Butfict not expecting an aggressive block.

    They hype this game, put it on Monday night, ESPN does stories all weekend about “surviving Burfict” , and force these players into payoff mode, like when the cockfighting people circle the birds before dropping them in. And now this morning, loudmouth Steven A. started hyping next year saying that he is giving condolences to JuJu for the next time they play and Burfict gets him. It’s a ratings thing that they promote, then punish the players for responding. Put the Niners and Giants on Monday night, I assure you they don’t care enough to hit anyone. When the Steelers and Bengals played with no hype at 1pm it was much quieter. They want blood and controversy, then take the high road and admonish players

    No surprise. I called it on the game thread about 10 seconds after the hit.

    To me, it looks like JuJu's helmet meets Burfict's facemask. I'm iffy on whether Burfict shouldn't reasonably be expecting a block from that direction. He knew receivers ran routes and would be in that area. He just never looked, which I have a hard time blaming on Smith-Schuster.

    Iloka also drew a one-game suspension for his hit on Brown, but this is still utter crap.

    The NFL HQ had nowhere to hide after the ESPN announcers lobbied for the remainder of the nationally televised prime time game about JuJUus "blatant illegal" hit on the defenseless Burfuct. In hindsight though (as most are saying around here) it was the taunting that cooked the goose, more so than the hit itself. The fact that JuJu wasn't even a Steeler when Burfuct abused Ben, Bell and Brown is what will forever elevate this young man high on the pedestal of Steeler folklore. This dude knows how to study game tapes. :applaud:

    There was a lot of emotion riding in that game, JUJU delivered the blow and taunted because of raw emotion. He even stated (KARMA) after the game (KARMA) that he was sincerely apologetic for what he did(HE GOT KARMA) sorry that was AB yelling in the background lol

    Huh? What is fowler talking about, the hit was legal? Not according to the letter the league sent out.

    Not defending the level of hanky tossing in this rivalry, but it would be interesting to stack this up with other intense rivalries starting with the Raiders vs any AFC West opponent. The whole eggshell mood was set early last night by the Shazier injury and every questionable action thereafter was adding insult to injury (no pun intended). The announcers were as out of control as the players. Also, if Ryan hadn't been injured on that play, would he have drawn a flag for leading with a helmet?

    And if you want to watch real BS, re-watch the last field goal the the Bengals player was off sides and kicked Boswell’s foot
