PostSubject: Juju Smith-Schuster and George Iloka Suspended for one game   Tue Dec 05, 2017 2:15 pm

Well I can't say I'm overly surprised. I'm glad he'll be back for the Patriots***, but man I miss when Hines Ward type blocks were legal.

Honestly though I think the taunting is what ultimately got him suspended. I'm fine with the hit and giving Burfict some of his own medicine, but the taunting isn't professional, especially if you're on the Monday Night stage.

Gruden was annoying as hell with his spiel about wanting to" pay to see Burfict play". Really? The guy that took out Bell's ACL and then celebrated his obvious injury on the field, then knocked AB out of a AFC CG because of a cheap hit.? He was making comments like JJ's hit drives fans away. I guess that's why Cincy-Pitt games draw primetime so often...the networks like putting games on that won't draw a lot of viewers. I guess they figure a 5-6 team team playing the division leader will be a pre playoff match up.

if JuJu would of just hit Burfict and walked off no flags would have been thrown because it was a good clean hit.

coach Ward JuJu got his big block and respect now coach JuJu block hard and walk away with a big smile.

From the article FA posted above ...

Quote :
In a letter to the rookie receiver, Runyan made it clear the taunt played a role in the suspension.



Key part of Fowler's tweet ... hit was deemed legal but the taunt was over the top.

So basically, Juju was suspended for taunting?

Suspensions come quickly for Steelers and Bengals

Posted by Darin Gantt on December 5, 2017

That didn’t take long.

The NFL just announced one-game suspensions for Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Bengals safety George Iloka, after last night’s over-the-line hits.

Both were flagged last night for helmet-to-helmet hits, Smith-Schuster for dropping Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict and Iloka for hitting Steelers wideout Antonio Brown in the end zone.

They can appeal within the next three days, and those will be heard by Derrick Brooks or James Thrash.

While those suspensions are clearly justified, they were at least organic, unlike Patriots* tight end Rob Gronkowski‘s sneak attack, which also drew a one-game ban.

At least they got Iloka too. Gronkowski should get 3.

Mike Tomlin: JuJu's taunting more disturbing than hit

By Kevin Patra
Around the NFL writer
Published: Dec. 5, 2017

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster earned a flag for a brutal crackback block that knocked Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict out of Monday night's game. The receiver earned another penalty for taunting after standing over the defender.

The league suspended Smith-Schuster one game Tuesday without pay for violating safety-related playing rules.

Prior to the one-game suspension being announced, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he took more issue with the taunting than the hit.

"I haven't had an opportunity to see the television copy often times particularly in HD -- that provides the best case scenario," Tomlin told reporters. "I'll stand by my statement last night that his actions after the hit are more disturbing than the hit itself. Often times plays like that are teachable moments. When you look at it you have an opportunity to talk about ways you can be safer and so forth. He is a better sportsman than he displayed after the block and you got to acknowledge that. He's got to work hard so people understand the type of man he is from a sportsmanship standpoint and that's not something that's going to happen overnight. That's just the reality of plays like that."

Smith-Schuster apologized after the game for the block and standing over Burfict.

Yeah I'll be buying a Smith-Schuster jersey, he earned that last night. Suspension is knee jerk BS from the NFL. Burfict kicked Nix in the head last time we played and all he got was fined, and how many offenses does he have under his belt?

If you guys don't mind I'm going to shamelessly plug my podcast in here:



My thoughts on the game, the Shazier injury, and the Smith-Schuster block on Burbitch.

Yeah I was like Damn it JU JU why did you have to go and draw 2 penalties on that great hit. I said that I only wished that Hines was still playing so he could have gotten a Keith Rivers shot on Burfict. Pretty sure Hines was smiling on that play.

When doesn't Hines Ward smile?

You got me there.

Good stuff. You summed up pretty much how I feel about the game and aftermath. Oh, and I'm starting a new drinking game. Every time you drop an F-bomb, listeners have to do a shot.

Ju Ju is the man and Burfict got exactly what he deserved. He was acting up that hit anyway to get sympathy as evident by crawling after him after the hit. He wanted the thumbs up cart send off after crying all game for little injuries.

Block was completely legal, keep doing it. Just don't stand over your victim afterwards. Run to the sidelines yelling "I got him!!" like Burfict did to Bell.

There is no way JJSS hit was anything comparable to what Gronk did. For them to get the same 1-game suspension is ridiculous. Yes, the taunting was over the top, but when does taunting warrant a suspension?

If anything, it should've been a double fine. One for the hit, then one for a dead-ball personal foul. And yes, subsequently a heavy fine.

The NFL is setting a precedent for ridiculousness on fines, suspensions, and being inconsistent with how they handle issues.

It's amazing all the butthurt Bengal fans on social media crying about this "illegal" hit and about Burfict's "injury". They haven't cared about either of those things until their team was on the receiving end of each. That organization and it's fans suck.

Steelers furious as NFL overturns suspension for Bengals' George Iloka

George Iloka had his suspension reduced, JuJu Smith-Schuster didn't and the Steelers weren't happy with either development Wednesday.

In an emotionally charged post-practice locker room, Ramon Foster took a verbal shot at the NFL's vice president of football operations, and Mike Mitchell and Maurkice Pouncey railed against the league's disciplinary standards.

Jon Runyan, the NFL vice president who levied the suspensions Monday, was called a “pawn” by Foster, the Steelers union representative. Pouncey called the disciplinary process “stupid,” and Mitchell said the NFL is trying to turn the sport into “flag football.”

The reactions came a few hours after Iloka, the Bengals safety who delivered a helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers receiver Antonio Brown during a fourth-quarter touchdown catch, had his one-game suspension reduced to a $36,464.50 fine. On Tuesday night, Smith-Schuster's appeal of his one-game suspension for his illegal hit and taunt of Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was upheld.
