I'd like to see Pugh re-signed now. He knows the defense better than Rambo and Gumbs.

Not saying Gumbs can't be good but I'd rather have the knowledge of Pugh, at least we know what we have.

I have a feeling Raheem with go with ole' reliable Biggers though, his drinking buddy.

Honestly I disagreed with the first call. It seemed to me as though he lead with his hands not head. This is a physical sport and many people who have played the game and been around the game for a while have said its can be confusing as to where you can hit and can't hit these days. I'm not a dirty minded guy but I know if I was playing I would want to hit a guy to knock him out or at least leave him remembering that I laid that hit to him.

Check it again from the redskins endzone angle.

From the front side of the play all you see is Meriweather using his arms and his shoulder to push Jeffery, from the backside if the play, you see Meriweather do his patenet launch with his head aming for the defenders chin, like a boxer does on the uppercut, only a boxer is using his glove, Meriweather uses his helmet as a weapon to try to knock the receiver out. He always hits like this, 4 times in 5 games, it's utterly ridiculous.

I saw the game. Merriwether needs to learn how to tackle. How many games did he get? I can agree that his hits were on the dirty side this year.

i think he appeals it and gets 1 game an a fine.

I hope he learns his lesson, but something tells me he won't

Perhaps it is due to my crappy memory, but has anyone else ever been suspended for repeated violations of player safety rules? James Harrison? Ndomukung Suh?

I'm not saying that Meriweather doesn't deserve the suspension. I am just curious as to what is the line that one has to cross before a suspension comes out. How many fines does one have to incur and over what timeframe before you are forcibly sat down?

I'd really like us to bring up Minnefield for awhile and give him a shot...though I fear if he shows too well they'd not be able to get him on the PS. :/

I read today we could add a player to replace Meriweather .. Pugh seems logical. I wish we'd kept Gomes.

Harrison was. They tried to suspend Dashon Goldson earlier this year, but Matt Birk sits on the committee that handles these cases now that Art Shell retired and Birk ruled that Goldson should not be suspended, but he gave him a 100,000 fine.

Last year, they tried to suspend Ed Reed. After appeal, he only got a 50,000 fine.

Something tells me that he'll appeal it, probably get one game and a 100,000 fine.

Yeah, I agree, I've been thinking the same thing.

One place we really miss Gomes is on kick coverage, he was one of our leaders on kick coverage the past few seasons.

Of course, last game Trenton Robinson was everywhere. I saw him try to tackle Hester on one sideline but before Robinson could get there, Hester changed course, and so did Robinson, he tracked Hester across the field and made the tackle on the other sideline. He seems like a high effort guy and the kind of guy we need on special teams.

He has appealed and gets an expedited hearing ( 48 hours ) I agree it'll be dropped to ONE game and a heavy fine.

Not enough games in my opinion. I can't stand the guy, was absolutely embarrassed when we signed him. Just let Rambo and Gumbs play.

We really didn't have a lot of options after we let Atogwe and Landry go and then the salary cap penalty hit
