    I agree it's not enough, but I have to believe if he comes back and does anything even remotely wrong he'll be done for the season.

    How many times do you have to expain things to a person before they get it? Will he remember for next season?

    Agreed. He is a classless player that needs to be taught a lesson. I would have suspended him for the rest of the year.

    Will he get a fine beyond two games without pay?

    Doesn't sound like it. He is also appealing the suspension, in hopes that it will be reduced to one game.

    I think it should be like when I had to appeal a traffic/car ticket (tinted windows).

    If I appeal, and won... no fine.
    If I appeal, and lost: 50% increase


    So if he appeals and loses, he should have to sit 3 games.

    Also the appeal should happen the next day, not two/three weeks later.

    Doesn't the pay he was supposed to get for those games, go to charity? (aka, his salary for those two games are the fine)

    The appeal is going to happen before the Lions play the Saints.

    Yup.

    I agree with this, but they DO have the best QB who has ever played the game in my lifetime. ;)

    Seriously? Have you watched any Colts games? I like Indy & watch them a lot; their offense is horrific. They don't even average 200 passing yards per game (181 yds/game) resulting in constantly punting and overworking the defense. Manning moves the ball and scores points...exactly what they're not doing.

    I think you may be forgetting about a couple people. Couple guys names Brady and Manning. Way too early to say Rodgers is better.

    The Packers have also played a fairly light schedule.

    Their defense is pathetic. No way they even go .500 with Manning. In fact, before the season (when I thought he was playing), I predicted 8-8 for them. Even that's a stretch now with that defense. It's plain terrible.

    I don't think it's too early at all. I look at a lot of characteristics of Rodgers and see him better than the aforementioned QBs and anyone else in the last several decades.

    Don't you realize their horrible offense is why defense is so bad. When you're constantly on the field, you get tired and dominated. Manning completely changes a winless team into an AFC contender. I realize you're a Patriots fan & probably think Brady is the greatest ever, but he's no Manning.

    Agreed, but you'll never convince LV to ever change his Death Star colored glasses. ;)

    Take a look at their first quarter defensive numbers and get back to me.

    For the teams they are on, both Brady and Manning are the best ever. Swap them and neither would be as successful as they have been. They are perfect fits for their given situations. They are both first ballot HOF'ers and should go down as two of the best QB's of all time. They're that good.

    And neither is an Aaron Rodgers.

    Get back to me when Rodgers throws 50 TD's. Or wins three SB's. Or pulls off one of the biggest upsets in SB history. Or has 119 wins and a .773 winning percentage. That last bit is the best all time, by the way. ;)

    I disagree with the interchangeability. Any QB can succeed in the Patriots system, ask Matt Cassel and his 10-6 season. ;) Manning makes a bunch of nobodies into all-stars. His numbers last year, where his only healthy receiver/tight end was Wayne, shows his greatness. Brady is great, though. (Ugh, I hate typing good things about the Patriots.) ;)
