'It's stupid': Steelers furious as National Football League overturns suspension for Bengals' George Iloka

  • JuJu Smith Schuster Annihilated Vontaze Burfict On A Crackback Block

"The Competition Committee has clearly expressed its goal of "eliminating flagrant hits that have no place in our game" and has encouraged the league office to suspend offenders for egregious violations such as the one you committed last night", Runyan said in his ruling.

If not for the recent string of incidents, one has to wonder if a suspension would have been doled out to Smith-Schuster. He went right for Burfict's head, launching at an upward angle as the linebacker was in a defenseless position. I should've never stood over him.

There is no place in the National Football League for acts like this.

To make matters worse, Smith-Schuster actually stood over Burfict and celebrated after the hit. Then, he proved his ill intentions by taunting him afterward.

ESPN's Lisa Salters reported that Burfict "jumped up" off the stretcher once he was taken through the tunnel and was able to walk to the locker room. He is a better sportsman than he displayed after the block and you got to acknowledge that.

Smith-Schuster was flagged for unnecessary roughness and taunting after a blindside hit on Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the fourth quarter of Pittsburgh's 23-20 victory Monday night.

Iran, which supports the Houthis but denies arming them, welcomed Saleh's killing, saying it had put an end to a Saudi conspiracy. Saudi Arabia, accusing Iran of backing the rebels, intervened in the Yemen war on behalf of the government the following year.


If the National Football League is creating a new precedent, that could mean bad news for Smith-Schuster, Gronkowski and Iloka in the appeals process. We all put our lives on the line when we come out here every week, and you don't want anything like that to happen to a player, no matter what team you play for or how big the rivalry is.

"The guy just left his feet and hit me in the head".

Smith-Schuster, who is not permitted inside the Steelers facility until he serves his suspension, will miss a game check worth $25,744.

"Is he just trying to get back in the good graces of God because of that?"

Running back Joe Mixon and starting cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick also were held out of practice Wednesday with concussions sustained during the loss to Pittsburgh.
