The incident brought to mind an act by then-Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth in 2006. He stomped on the face of helmetless Dallas Cowboys center Andre Gurode, who required 30 stitches afterward.
Not everyone believes that Suh should be punished as harshly as Haynesworth, who received a five-game suspension without pay. But most commentators said that Suh’s track record is a factor and he merits at least a one-game suspension, if not multiple games. An NFL spokesman said the play won’t be reviewed until next week.
The league might as well hit Suh hard and hope that does the trick. Because it’s doubtful that another meeting would help more than the first one.
