4 games is a steeper penalty than what was originally handed down to Ray Rice, from the NFL Commissioner.
ICYMI: Rice knocked his [now] wife unconscious in an elevator.
How do those meetings go, that determine suitable disciplinary action?I picture a large oval mahogany table, leather chairs… 10-15 super important rich guys shootin’ the shit, eating expensive snacks.
As my imagination starts getting extra creative… I picture them all cackling, their old-rich-pretentious cackles when they start getting down to business.
The punishments over the last few seasons for NFL players are ridiculously wide-ranged, no rhyme or reason. What we’ve learned from this whole Deflate Gate scandal, is that the worse offense of all, isn’t raping or beating women.
…It’s not cooperating with the big guys upstairs […not Jesus].
Detroit Lions defensive tackle, Ndamukong Suhstomped on Green Bay Packer’s quarterback, Aaron Rogers ankle and ended up having his one game suspension reduced to a fine.
The Atlanta Falcons were streaming in fake crowd noise during home games – ultimately trying to gain an advantage over their opponent & were handed down a punishment of the loss of a fifth-round draft pick in 2016, and the team was fined $350,000.
Are you telling me Roger Goodell, that Matt Ryan had no knowledge of this? Not even possibly?
The last time the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers dueled, it ended in a 26-26 tie. Prediction: That will not happen again…
The Minnesota Vikings have a lot to be excited about after Sunday’s win against the Falcons. Rookie QB, Teddy Bridgewater threw for 317 yards and ran five times for 27 more. His calm demeanor and mature movement in the pocket, certainly doesn’t scream, Rookie!
As good of a game as it was for the Vikings on Sunday – Let’s not forget that the Green Bay Packers are 7-1-1 in their last nine games against the Vikings at home &… they do not need stellar performances by a rookie quarterback to get their fans excited; they have Aaron Rogers – who recently told fans:
R-E-L-A-X…He’s got this.
Since Adrian Peterson has been out dealing with his legal woes, Viking running backs Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon have had a good run… (pun intended). McKinnon exploded out of the backfield for 135 yards last week and Asiata added three rushing touchdowns against the Falcons. This week, these two get to go against the less than stellar Green Bay defense – who has given up 175 yards on the ground… per game.
Packers running back, Eddie Lacy rushed into the end-zone for the first time this year securing 1 out of the 4 touchdowns Green Bay scored against the Chicago Bears last Sunday. It’s safe to say, Green Bay may not a running team… but they don’t need to be to get a win.
The Minnesota Viking’s overall #1 pick, Linebacker Anthony Barr seems to know what he’s doing with 2 sacks so far & Free Safety, Harrison Smith made his intentions clear in the 4th quarter against the Falcons by sealing the the Viking’s win with an interception.
The Packers defense has struggled this season, but they managed to hold their own against the typically high scoring Bears offense last week. The packers have key players on their defense like Clay Matthews who intercepted Jay Cutler & Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix who had 5 tackles, all on his own last week.
It pains me to say this as a Minnesota Viking Fan…but, I have to be honest. The combination of playing at Lambeau Field & Teddy’s minor ankle setback… I can not sit here and say I think The Vikings will come out victorious.
Green Bay Packers: 34
Minnesota Vikings: 27
I’m expecting Mr. Rogers to sling the ball & connect a few times. I mean, obviously…
I think Mr. Bridgewater’s game will be less smooth than his game against the Falcons. If he can stay as collected as last week & the offensive line continues to protect him though…
One more prediction…
We will see this.
Fun Fact: The Packers–Vikings rivalry is noted for being very balanced. In the first 97 meetings, the total offensive yardage, points scored, wins, turnovers, and time of possession are all within 5% of each other; these are the closest margins for a rivalry longer than 15 years.
