The hit was weak, but this is what happens when you develop a reputation as a dirty player. As far as I’m concerned, and I’m sure many Browns fans would tend to agree, the only real shame here is that Suh didn’t hit Weeden hard enough to put him on the bench for the rest of the season. Watching Brandon Weeden play QB makes my brain hurt.
This throw, on a potential game-tying drive, is the final nail in the coffin for Weeden’s time in Cleveland. He could walk on the waters of Lake Erie and he will still be gone at the end of this season. Browns football!!! Factory of Sadness!!!

Mere hours after Lions center Dominic Raiola told MLive that the league’s latest review into Ndamukong Suh’s on-field behavior was “ridiculous,” Suh reportedly was fined $31,500 for a hit Sunday on Cleveland QB Brandon Weeden.
Mike O’Hara of the Lions’ website confirmed the fine, though he did not specifically say which Week 6 play had drawn Suh’s latest punishment. Odds are, it’s for when Suh appeared to hit Weeden in the chest while shoving the Cleveland QB to the ground — that play was highlighted for review by NFL VP of officiating Dean Blandino, during a video filmed inside the league’s “Officiating Command Center.”
