Lions notes looks at Matt Schaub's comments on Ndamukong Suh, Roger Goodell in Detroit and much more.
Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub has made it perfectly clear that he is no fan of Ndamukong Suh, who kicked him in the groin last Thursday. On Monday, Schaub said during an interview that he wouldn't want to be teammates with Suh because Suh is "not Houston Texan worthy." I'm sure many players around the league have similar feelings about Suh.
- As of right now, there hasn't been any decision made yet on possible discipline for Suh's kick, according to Dave Birkett.
- Suh responded to various criticisms of his play on the field and his behavior off the field in an article for ESPN The Magazine. Regardless of your thoughts on Suh, it's probably worth a read.
- Grantland has a good article on how the old CBA is wreaking havoc on the Lions' salary situation. To put it nicely, the Lions would be in much better shape had the new rookie salary scale been in place a few years earlier.
- The NFL Competition Committee is already having internal discussions about changing the replay rule that allowed a blown call to stand on Thanksgiving, according to Jason La Canfora. Apparently a vote on making a change could happen as soon as Dec. 12.
- Roger Goodell will be in Detroit on Tuesday for the Lions' Courage House Dinner, as he is the guest speaker for the event. The timing really couldn't have been worse given what happened on Thanksgiving. (Via Jennifer Hammond)
- Seattle Seahawks cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are facing a four-game suspension, according to Adam Schefter. The suspension stems from them violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy. So it turns out Richard "Optimus Prime" Sherman was apparently using a little extra something. Whoops.
