Another week, another dirty hit by Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
The Detroit Lions star defender was reportedly fined $31,500 for a hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden last Sunday.
Suh hit Weeden twice on Sunday, one of which involved Suh using his helmet to hit Weeden while making a tackle.
This is the second time Suh has been fined this season and the seventh fine of his relatively short career. Suh has also received a two game suspension for stomping on Green Bay Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith in 2011.
“There’s always going to be a microscope on me,” Suh said. “I think there’s been a microscope on me since I was first drafted in 2010 because I was a first-round pick. But I think there is always going to be a microscope on me no matter where it is, from outside media, from the NFL to little kids to anybody.
“There’s going to be somewhat of a microscope. My face is out there. That’s become a part of life.”
Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz agreed with Suh,
“Particularly for high-profile players, and he certainly fits the bill as a high-profile player,” Schwartz said.
“Yeah, it’s, with that, with the Green Bay-Baltimore thing, I think it brought a lot of attention on how difficult it is on defensive players.”There’s a lot of things that happen within the game that are tough decisions. The game is played very, very quickly and those guys try to do the best they can. We leave the officiating to the officials and leave the administrating to the administrators.”
Suh’s last punishment was a $100,000 fine for an illegal low block on Vikings offensive lineman John Sullivan.
Suh, like his coach, deflected questions about whether or not the attention that Suh’s play receives is fair.
“Do I think it’s fair? Nothing in life is fair,” Suh said. “It’s a double-edged sword. Being successful and having some success in the game is obviously going to garner attention, and I think that’s something people deal with in negative ways and positive ways.
“It’s just people get attention and that’s the way it works.”
Suh is set to play in Sunday’s game where the Lions will face the Cincinnati Bengals and once again, all eyes will be on Suh.

$31,500 for a hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon
Brandon Weeden returned to the game after Brian Hoyer was injured during the Buffalo Bills Thursday night game. Well after leading the Browns to a win against Buffalo and losing a game last week against Detroit it seems at least one fan has given up on him. That fan is 22 year old Seth Pae […]
Brandon Weeden just isn’t cutting it in Cleveland in the minds of some fans.
The Browns seemed to have some semblance of a shot this season, but one fan has grown impatient with the team’s quarterback, so that fan has taken to the best place to find whatever random thing you are looking for — Craigslist — in search of a new signal caller. Weeden has a 71.4 passer rating and...
Browns QB Brandon Weeden hasn’t been playing high level football. He may have had the ugliest interception of the season when he tried to backhand a pass against Detroit that eventually resulted in a TD. That was one of two interceptions on the day for Weeden. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that that doesn’t open the door for backup Jason Campbell.
It isn't getting any better for Brandon Weeden, especially after he launched this pass last week against the Lions:
The Cleveland Browns were having a bit of a renaissance when Brian Hoyer took over, but the offense is inept, once again, now that Weeden is back in a starting role. The team is back in the Tanking for Teddy sweepstakes, but one fan in the Cleveland area is willing...
It’s a confusing time to be a Browns fan. I guess it’s always a confusing time to be a Browns fan, but this is a conundrum almost unlike any other since 1999. The Cleveland Browns might not be traditional trailblazers, but they do find new and interesting ways to confuse their fans. The Cleveland Browns are in contention right now, but they’re really not. Their record says...
It appeared that the Browns had given up on the 2013 season after an 0-2 start and trading RB Trent Richardson to the Colts. Then Brian Hoyer came along and led the Browns to consecutive wins before he was injured in a Thursday night game vs. the Bills. Brandon Weeden, who was the starter, came in the game and led the Browns to victory and first place in the AFC North.
These words actually left our mouth the other day: "The Browns' season went down with Brian Hoyer."
We weren't kidding either. After leading Cleveland to two straight wins Hoyer suffered a torn ACL against the Bills in Week 5 paving the way for the return of Brandon Weeden the team's 2012 first-round pick who has been to put it kindly underwhelming.
