The Sports Bank:
No absence of storylines from the 2011 “Thanksgiving Turkey Bowl” between the Green Bay Packers an the Detroit Lions. You had:
-the Lions failing to live up to expectations/Matt Stafford throwing three picks
-Green Bay winning in dominant fashion 27-8, despite playing UGLY football for a half
-The Detroit fans getting a petition passed to prevent the crappy, overrated pop act Nickelback from playing at halftime
-Would this match-up of two potentially playoff bound NFC North teams live up to night back featuring two first place teams (San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens)
However, the real story here was Ndamukong Suh getting kicked out of the game early in the second half.
From Fox Sports:
The second-year star was seen grappling with Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith before standing up and stomping on his arm. The referees immediately flagged him for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and threw him out.
It’s the first ejection of Suh’s career. He met with NFL Commi...

It's one thing to be considered a tough, physical or hard-nosed player. It's quite another to be considered dirty. But after Thursday's performance at Ford Field during the Packers' 27-15 win, I'm afraid it's going to hard for anyone to think anything differently of the Lions' Ndamukong Suh.
The question won't be if the NFL will suspend Suh, but when...
I have been a defender of Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh in the past, ready to give him the benefit of the doubt. I enjoyed the intensity which he plays the game but after watching his actions during a Nationally televised game Thanksgiving Day, he is no longer worthy of my support- Ndamukong Suh should be suspended for the remainder of the regular season.
Suh has played...
Ndamukong Suh was kicked out of the Thanksgiving battle between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers. The Packers had just failed to convert on third down inside the Lions’ 5-yeard line, setting up a fourth down and a likely field goal while holding a 7-0 lead over the Lions. Suh got tied up with offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith and then proceeded to deliver what seemed...

Ndamukong Suh of the Detroit Lions dunks a Packers OL’s head to the ground 3 times and kicked him while he was down…..”My intention was not to kick anybody, as I did not, removing myself,” he said. “I was on top of a guy, being pulled down, and trying to get up off the ground — and why you see me pushing his helmet down, because I’m trying...
Ndamukong Suh's bad penalty and insistence that he did nothing wrong will cost the Lions dearly as they try to push for the playoffs. He can still try to minimize the damage with some words of contrition.
The Detroit Lions released a statement in response to defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh's stomping incident against Green Bay yesterday.
The hardest thing to believe about the Lions' latest Thanksgiving meltdown was the explanation Ndamukong Suh gave himself, his coach and his self-titled nation for an ejection that changed the course of a winnable game.
It has been confirmed, Ndamukong Suh is Suh-per dirty.
Suh, who is a frequent recipient of the Roger Goodel bad behavior award, was at it again in the Detroit Lions 27-15 loss to the undefeated Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving Day 2011.
Suh was ejected in the 3rd quarter with over nine minutes remaining and the Lions trailing 7-0 to the Packers. The unsportsmanlike...

Green Bay Packers player.
Maurice Morris gets another carry, this one for no gain.
On second-and-10, Matthew Stafford tosses Morris a pass for a first down. It was for a gain of 15 yards.
We're entering the fourth quarter. What are your thoughts about the Lions' chances at a comeback?
Part of me wants to dwell on the mistakes made by the Lions that cost them a shot against the Green Bay Packers. The other part of me simply wants to dismiss the 27-15 loss because the Packers are really that good.
Either way you look at the game, the facts are clear: the Lions had 11 penalties on top of three turnovers, all Matthew Stafford interceptions. The penalties, especially...
