Last night’s Monday night football game between the Steelers and Bengals was really close to getting out of hand. There were some scary injuries, cheap shots and lots of penalties, just like the old days between these two division rivals. The scariest injury from last night was when Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier went in for at tackle but ended up dipping his head then falling to the turf grabbing his back. As soon as the contact happened his legs went motionless, even when he rolls over, his legs just flop and it was a really scary sight

 

Scary scene, he was taken off the field on a stretcher then directly to the hospital. Here is an update on Tuesday morning.

 

This was a hit that had no ill will behind it, just an unfortunate outcome of playing football. Not the same can be said for these other two plays.

 

Juju Smith-Schuster with a huge crack block on Burfict, that’s what receivers are coached to do, but Juju put the crown of his helmet right under his chin, which is not what you are coached to do, although it is the most effective when you’re trying to block someone way bigger than you. It’s fucking idiotic how he stands over him taunting him when earlier in the game it looked like one of your teammates may have lost his ability to walk, so fucking stupid, play hard and act like a professional, Schuster did only one of those things.

The Bengals who are no pansies themselves respond back with a huge head hit on the Steelers star receiver Antonia Brown in the end zone after a TD grab.

 

This is obviously in response to the hit earlier. Dangerous football that could lead to life-changing injuries. These players are paid VERY well to risk their health in a game that’s not exactly safe when played within the rules, the last thing they need is the player you’re going up against to try & intentionally hurt you.

These suspensions are warranted just because of the intent to injure I believe, big hits and injuries happen, but these plays were targeted.
