If the Vikings had only spent the Jennings money on Carson Palmer.

Did Suh actually say "My aim was his waist"??? The fact that Sullivan was 5 yds behind a DB, that could run fast enough to the end zone, and back, to meet OL, some where around the 20yd line, should show that there was no need to even block him. This is a problem that has plagued the League for years. Suh has been doing this crap since he entered the league. He was doing it in college. There are most likely guys with a limp, that he played in High school. The League gives out penalties, fines, and suspensions to any Defensive players that dare to even hurt the feelings of a QB. When are they going to protect all the other players on the field. On another note: It was great to see Simpson play the way the Team thought he would, last season. GO VIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's long past timeto stop these cheap shots. A simple suggestion that will help. Any time a player is injured, and the opposing player is penalized, the offending player is benched for as long as the injured player is out. That could be one series, or for years. No team should benefit from a cheap shot by taking out another teams player.

ā€œIā€™m not going for his knees,ā€ Suh said. Really? Maybe you should take a refresher in Anatomy 101. Those things between hips and ankles are knees.

There he goes again... Jared Allen running his mouth after a questionable hit. Allen makes those types of hits all the time. In 2008 he took a big chunk out of Matt Schaub's season by intentionally diving into his knees TWICE during the game. $50k fine for his efforts. Last season he blindsided a bears offensive lineman trailing the play ending his season... For all his talk of fraternity, he seems to be one of the dirtiest players in the NFL.

brocklander1 is angry that the Packers lost and is taking it out on Jared Allen. Suh is by far the dirtiest player in the NFL. Any questionable hits Allen has made, and he has made some, pale in comparison to how Suh usually conducts himself on the football field.

This guy never learns, he is a cheap shot artist and until the league gives him a hefty fine and sits him down, what reason is there for him to change his tatics?

Lucky we didn't miss out on any of that stellar Sullivan run blocking.

aphlol: Smiled at your comment, but in Sullivan's defense, fairly tough to run block when the other team's safeties are acting like linebackers, with no fear at all of Ponder hurting them.

Cut Ponder tomorrow, hire Tim Tebow.
