Bengals locker room interviews and bengal forums all are focused on the JuJu block. Calling it illegal and dirty.

Meanwhile, no mention of the H2H hit on AB in the end zone, or the cheap shot late hit on BR. They are also equating burfucked being carted away as being the same as shazier. It was painfully obvious to me he, or his coaching staff/trainers thought they could capitalize on the hit. Burfucked was ready to get up and confront JuJu. Nobody mentions he jumped off the cart once it was out of view. They gambled, thinking they could hold the steelers without him for the last minutes of the game and thought the penalty would sink the steelers.

And I'll throw this here as well. Ginger, between the lines, says the reason they lost the game was because of bogus penalties(TD called back) and cheap hits by the steelers (mixon out with a concussion/ burfucked).

WTF?......it's all optics anymore....if this happens, the NFL is giving Burfict exactly what he was trying to accomplish after the hit.... :roll: :evil:

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo reports the NFL is "strongly weighing" a one-game suspension of JuJu Smith-Schuster for his Monday hit and taunt of Vontaze Burfict.

Told ya’ll.....its the story ESPN has been pushing since last night, meanwhile on FS1 Whitlock loved the hit and him and Cowherd were very critical of Gruden and McDontKnow

Un-Fucking believable. He gets the same penalty as what Gronk did after the whistle and per-meditated. Fucking bullshit.

Absolute joke.

Has any first time offender besides Juju ever been suspended for a non-dirty but arguably (I don't think it was) rule breaking hit?

DP39, if that is true and comes to pass, wow!!

That is really the first controversial play that JuJu has made in his career. It happened while the play was ongoing, not after the whistle, if you look at the play Burfect saw the block coming. This is not the way Hines would sometimes blindside somebody where they did not even see him coming.

For the NFL to suspend him for one game over this, his first serious miscue is ridiculous. Especially when you see other players, like Burfect who repeatedly do things over and over then eventually get a game suspension after a pattern of behavior. Gronk, I can understand that one, player was on the ground, play was over, and he went off on him. With JuJu it was a bang bang play, he did it while Bell was running with the football, don't really understand in my mind how anybody can say that was a dirty, illegal hit, rules be damned. What was JuJu supposed to do in that scenario, let Burfect tackle Bell from behind. Just stand there and do nothing?

It was a rule breaking hit but no way was that suspension worthy.

LB from Chicago was suspended a game for his hit on Davonte Adams, believe that game was also a primetime game. Had either of those hits occurred in a noon sunday game nothing would be done, shit only hits the fan once ESPN starts banging their drums.

According to the rules, an illegal block occurs when:

Quote:
An offensive player cannot initiate contact on the side and below the waist against an opponent if:

the blocker is moving toward his own end line; and

he approaches the opponent from behind or from the side.

Note: If the near shoulder of the blocker contacts the front of his opponent’s body, the “peel back” block is legal.


Thus, it was not an illegal peel back block as Burfict was running sideline to sideline.

Here is my source https://operations.nfl.com/the-rules/nf ... ack-block/.

Thus, the refs basically said Juju hit him too hard.

Also, fuck Gruden. On the TD to Green, Watt's jersey was clearly pulled away from him and Gruen screamed where is the foul. Bryant's arm was grabbed and held and Gruden screamed where is the foul. A, what appeared to be legal play, and Gruden screams where is the ejection.


Gruden has become so tiresome
They would can him and bring in romo
