Default LB Joe Mays Suspended 1 Game for Hit on SCHAUB

NFL suspends Joe Mays one game for hit on Matt Schaub

Posted by Michael David Smith on September 25, 2012, 2:20 PM EDT


Broncos linebacker Joe Mays has apologized for his vicious hit on Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on Sunday, but the NFL doesnít think an apology is enough. And the league office doesnít think a heavy fine is enough, either.

Instead, Mays has been suspended for one game for his helmet-to-helmet hit, according to ESPNís Adam Schefter. Mays will appeal the suspension.

The hit was absolutely brutal, knocking Schaubís helmet off and knocking off a piece of Schaubís ear, too. Amazingly, Schaub only missed one play, which the Texansí medical staff apparently felt was sufficient to be sure that Schaub hadnít suffered a concussion.

Mays is a fifth-year player who has started all three games for the Broncos this season. Last week he was suspended $7,875 for a roughing the passer penalty on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. When Mays drilled Schaub this week, the league office apparently decided that it would need a lot more than just a fine to get through to Mays that hits like that simply arenít accepted in the NFL.

--------
It should have been MORE, if you ask me.

I'm pretty happy with that. I was expecting just a fine. The biggest revenge is that the Texans won the game!

Default Re: LB Joe Mays Suspended 1 Game for Hit on SCHAUB

If I'm being completely honest, I don't think that hit was intended to be that vicious. I think he came in with the intent to hit him hard, but I don't think he wanted to hit him like that. He's short, his helmet hit Schaub in the face, but Schaub also ducked into it. Or he was whiplashed into it by the other guy hitting him at the same time, whichever you prefer.

The hit before it was a clear intent to injure, IMO. That guy has gotten off light because of the Mays hit. The ball was away, the guy was a step or two away from Schaub, and then not only did he hit him, but drove him a few steps before driving him into the turf. That was unnecessary.

I think Mays should get fined, but not suspended. If Cushing hit Manning like that, apologized, and said that it wasn't his intent to injure, would you be clamoring for a suspension? Just answer yourself. No need to convince us.

When Mays lowered his head it looked like classic spearing to me. And the NFL apparently agrees with a 1 game suspension.

I think it was hard hit but was not intentional. I think the suspension is too much.

I think the suspension is justified, Broncos fans would feel the same way if one of our guys put that hit on Manning. Heck, any team would regardless of the QB. I was absolutely livid at the time because it was back to back cheapshots but reading about Joe Mays going up to Schaub after the game and apologizing brought me back to earth. On to Tennessee.

LOL the NFL can't win. They finally get something right this week and I've watched twitter and nfl fans/players go nuts again.

The sight of Schaub's helmet popping off and the shot of his ear is what did Mays in here. It just looks horrific.

I retract my earlier post about not thinking it was deliberate intent to injure. DB posted this in another thread, and I hadn't seen this angle yet. It looks like a pretty clear case of leading with the crown of the helmet. Should have suspended his ass for a couple games.

With Del Rio calling the shots on D...

Pretty sure it was intentional. This is how he "coaches." If he can't out scheme you (often) he'll settle for trying to injure people.

Default Re: LB Joe Mays Suspended 1 Game for Hit on SCHAUB

My first thought after the play was "If my QB's neck was held together with bubblegum and duct tape I wouldn't be headhunting". I don't think it was just that hit either. If you ask me it was the combination of the two hits in succession that was so sick. 1 game and some pocket lint, I'm good with that. If he comes back and does it again then things get real dicey.

If a hit like that would happen on NFL Poster Boy Peyton Manning, the guilty player(s) would be heavily fined, suspended the remainder of the season, and have their first born taken from them.
