07:49 AM ET 08.31 | Lions rookie Ndamukong Suh, assessed a 15-yard penalty for his head-turning takedown of Jake Delhomme, has drawn the NFL's attention too. Cleveland head coach Eric Mangini said at his news conference Monday that he would ask the league to investigate the play, but he assumed it would do so anyway. League spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed in an email to The Associated Press that the league was reviewing the play. "I was just going after the ball, and I had no clue that he had gotten rid of it," Suh said. "I don't know what to expect from the league. I've gotten personal fouls before, but that was in college, and they can't fine you there."

He could've broken Delhomme's neck on that play....

Delhomme could break his own neck spinning around to watch his pick go six.

OK, personal foul. It's not a game for little girls. If you start ejecting guys, suspending them and fining them for every play that's a little over the top, you'll end up playing touch football, or it will be like the Pro Bowl where nobody hits anybody.

Whaddaya expect from A Boy Named Suh, anyway?

After seeing that play, I'm surprised he wasn't ejected. First a face mask foul, then continuing on trying to twist the QB's head like he's the stopper on a hip flask.

A Lions thread...oh boy. the one Lion fan I found on Fan Nation will be overjoyed.

Pats fan. However, the cowGIRLS are the best, without question.

That was a ridiculous play. He should've been ejected immediately.

The hit was foul.. period. After being frustrated the whole game he finally sniffed the QB and could not control himself.

The outfits, the choreography, the bazooms, what's not to like? Other than a target for punters, what better use can you make of the Jerry-Tron?

Anyone hear anymore news on Jay Mariotti?

What's the big deal? Jake hasn't had his head on straight for a couple years now.

August 31, 2010  08:48 AM ET

They should thank him. If he was hurt it woulda saved Mangina the trouble of benching him by week 4.

What a bunch of girls in Cleveland. Art Modell did you people a favor when he took the Browns with him. Go take up ice dancing. No wonder Lebron left. I think that Suh just didn't want to have to touch the ugliest jersey in all of professional sports.
