    If JJ doesn't get it, they should call it the Most Valuable Quarterback award. In today's game, the QB position will always be the most valuable on the team.

    I would laugh very hard if Rex Ryan ends up coaching Atlanta. I think he is a fine defensive coordinator but should not be a head coach.

    Unrelated, does anyone know of any decent playoff prediction pool websites? We did one for the World Cup over on the soccer thread (no money - just bragging rights). Could be interesting to do one for the NFL playoffs if it exists.

    Does he get docked a game check? I know in the regular season if you get suspended you miss game checks but I'm not sure how it works in the playoffs.

    He's suspended from all team activities (including going to the game) for the week, so I'd assume so.

    Looked it up and last year players received between $21k-$23k for wild card playoff games. So not much of a hit out of Suh's pocket but of course there's more to life than money.

    Don't think the lions had a chance deep into the playoffs anyway. Suh will get his money next year no doubt, but the drama that comes with him may limit his options.

    Suh's suspension overturned. He's being fined $70k but gets to play against the Cowboys.

    Seahawks will take him - at a discounted price of course. He is from the PNW (Portland) anyway.

    Indeed. Pete Carroll seems to think he is still coaching the frat house. Suh will fit right in.

    I can't believe the NFL bought that excuse. Sad part is he's a great player and doesn't need to do shit like this.

    They should have increased his punishment just for insulting their intelligence with that excuse.
