Lions’ Ndamukong Suh Already Facing NFL Discipline
Ndamukong Suh is trying to get used to a new rule in the NFL that doesn’t allow players to dive at the knees of opposing players. While this may be a new rule for everyone; it has brought about familiar problems for the Detroit Lions defensive tackle.
During an interception return for an apparent touchdown by Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy, Suh made the bad hit. The play ended up being nullified since Suh was penalized for an illegal low block on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan. The play by Suh drew a 15-yard penalty and caught the eyes of the NFL brass.
Suh said he was not attempting to injure Sullivan, but the league is looking into the hit closer.
Giants to Try Out Brandon Jacobs After Weak Running Game in Opener
After a horrific outing by the New York Giants running game in the season opener, the G-Men are looking elsewhere. Word is that the team will work out running backs Brandon Jacobs and Willis McGahee this week. It has also been confirmed that former Jets running back Joe McKnight will also work out for the Giants.
Jacobs spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Giants before injuries hit him hard and he was sent packing and went to the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners waived Jacobs after one season. McGahee was just released by the Denver Broncos this past June.
Starting running back David Wilson was benched in the opener after fumbling twice and not setting up great blocking for Eli Manning. Andre Brown is out with a broken leg already. The Giants had Da’Rel Scott replace Wilson on Sunday and rookie Michael Cox is the only other back on the roster.
Super Bowl Suite Prices are Hitting Record Numbers
The Super Bowl could possibly experience some extremely cold weather when it takes place in MetLife Stadium in early 2014, but the game is already experiencing some high prices. Suites for the game are already at record amounts, but it is still expected that they will go quickly.
A suite at MetLife Stadium comes with 30 tickets (24 seats and six standing room) and the cheapest option is currently $472,996. The most expensive option listed on RazorGator.com is right under $1 million at $945,992.
It is obvious that New York does things a little differently since the most expensive Super Bowl suite usually goes for around $175,000. At least there will be food and an open bar.
