We knew something was coming. Even though there was no ejection — bullshit — we knew the NFL would not look favorably on this shit. Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan is suspended two games for this hit on Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams.
Davante Adams' helmet warped when it was hit. It's scary to see a player go down like that, hopefully he'll be okay. pic.twitter.com/5GpCtVTx3X

I still cringe when I see it.
Trevathan expressed regret after the game, but what does that really mean?

Whether that’s sincere or not is debatable. However, it appears Adams is okay. He’s in concussion protocol, but that’s about the best we could have hoped for coming off something like that.
At least he’s being punished. Question is, is it enough?
Reporter: When you saw the replay, did you regret how it went down?
Dindunuffin: Um..i, i regre, i regret, ya know, just um, the level i hit him at. (beware of stuttering thug mofo’s)
Instead of the candy ass reporter just nodding his head 20 times, he should have followed that up with…..”Isn’t leading with the crown of your helmet against NFL guidelines at any level?
Fuck you Trevathan, you got what you deserved.
Like the penalty. I still say one of the suspension games needs to be against the opponent the offense was against. This is a double penalty against the Packers when you consider the next game the cheap shot artist misses is against a division foe (Vikings). Not saying Trevathan could make a difference against the Vikings, but you are taking away a starter from the bears against a division foe. Should be one or two game(s) against next opponent(s) and the next game against the Packers.
I’d rather have him pay the price instantly. He’s going to lose about 235k in the next 2 weeks. The next offence will probably land him a 4-6 game suspension.
You’r theory works only if the offending team is in the same Division. Deferring punishment just doesn’t make sense logistically, a team out of the Division or Conference may not see that team for 2-4 years.
He gets the same penalty that Ray Rice got for knocking out his old lady. Nice…
What will be funny is when the NFLPA, you know the union that accuses the NFL of not caring about player injuries, appeals the suspension as being “too harsh”.
Oh and so much for that whole player unity thing. Ive seen more dirty hits the last 3 weeks then ive seen in years. If trying to end your fellow players career is ‘unity’ then I am misinformed.
