    Mike Evans suspended one game for drilling Marshon Lattimore

    Mike Evans of Tampa Bay Buccaneers suspended one game for hitting Marshon Lattimore of New Orleans Saints


    So the NFL won't suspended AJ Green or Jalen Ramsey for their fight during the Bengals/Jags game (with punches clearly thrown) but yet will suspended Mike Evans for doing basically the same thing.

    Good going NFL & Roger Goodell, Good going

    My only guess is that the NFL talked to the refs and decided that Ramsey had taken some cheap shots before Green took him down. I don't agree with it, but there has to be some kind of explanation.

    Mike Evans hit was much worse than AJ Green's take down. You can argue AJ deserved a suspension but the first suspension was Evans. He could have seriously hurt that guy.

    Grabbing a guy by the neck and flinging him to the ground cant hurt anyone?

    Not to mention, Green also threw punches. You can't get someone in a headlock from behind, take them down, start throwing punches and get by with it.

    NFL says you can, there is no safety issue with it per the NFL.

    It could. The worse of the two was Evans.

    See my post in the green not suspended thread. There was an article last night I read which I'm trying to find the link. That basically stated this is how it would play out. That being ejected and missing some of that game, can actually help prevent a suspension since you already missed some of a game.

    Evans was purely a cheap shot. He was not involved in the scuffle and jumped in. Green retaliated. Does anyone not think Green is an idiot for punching a helmet? He must have blown a gasket.

    Evans has been a disappointment this year, but not as much as his QB.

    No way to prove it, but having a bye week the first week of the season has hurt the Bucs.

    You weren't a fan of the best motivation speech of all time?
