A $31,500 fine handed down to Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh on Wednesday was the NFL’s largest of the week, although the hit that earned the fine was questionable at best. Likely earned for his reputation for “dirty” play, Suh admitted that his play is “under a microscope” at the league office.
These guys make it look it easy, but playing quarterback Cheap Baseball Jerseys China in the NFL is the most difficult job in sports. Here’s a closer look at how Tom Brady, Matthew Stafford and the league’s top quarterbacks can steal a game.
A microscope wasn’t required to fine Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes, who earned a $10,500 fine for wearing red shoes, one week after he was given a $7,875 penalty for the same violation. If he sticks with the red shoes, he can expect that number to continue increasing. Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was also issued a $10,500 fine for wrong-color shoes, as he elected to wear green shoes to bring attention to Mental Health Awareness Week.
Sander Philipse at Bucs Nation noted that the Bucs might be the best 0-5 team ever, per advanced stats:
Only a few of the best 0-5 teams turned it around over the final games. Just four of the twelve teams listed by Football Outsiders went on to win more than four games, and none of them made the playoffs. The 2007 Dolphins won just one game, in fact — and then drafted Jake Long instead of Matt Ryan. Half of those teams did win more than 10 games the very next year, though.
The Bucs may be 0-5, but they’re not really playing like it. Except for the losing, part. That one they’ve got down. This should give us a little hope that the Bucs can turn it around, or at least win a few games.
