05:03 PM ET 11.27 | Although his comments may not be the consensus around the league, Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz went on a local radio station on Tuesday to confirm that Ndamukong Suh's Thanksgiving kicking incident is still a non-issue in his mind. "There???s nothing to address," Schwartz said, as reported by CBS Detroit. "It didn???t warrant any kind of suspension." While he did not actually see the play live, Schwartz reviewed the tape numerous times after the game and immediately came to the conclusion that his star defensive tackle did not purposefully commit a malicious act. "There is going to be a camera on him on every play," Schwartz said. "His head was looped in another direction, there???s really no reason for people to believe (it was intentional.)"

If this was another player would be ragging on that player?You never seen Ronny Lott nor some other worst players play back in the 50's 60's.

If coach Hairbag doesn't shake his hand quite right, that is an earth-shattering problem. But if one of his guys kicks the other team's QB in the nuts, it's no big deal.

I suggest that every game begin with a ceremonial nut-kicking; the opposing coach gets a free shot at Schwartz' nuts. And to make sure he isn't wearing a cup, RuPaul will do the pre-game inspection.

I know, Alex Karras was a mean SOB, Butkus throwing Altie Taylor into the bench, others I'll remember as soon as I hit submit

Ray Nitschke was tough as nails and Conrad Dobler bit people.

I'm a moderately old farquhar so I've seen many. Everybody named so far.

And I've defended similar in hockey.

But Detroit is a punk team. They walk a fine line.

And under current Rules of Engagement, they are punks.

QB can't even read the instructions that came with his ball cap.....

"This side front".....

Yes, and yes:)

There is a fine line between tough guys and a cheap shot artist. Suh was lucky he wasn't also flagged for pulling Schaub backwards with his legs being caught underneath after Schaub threw the touchdown pass.

Won't take long for the Punk Coach and the thug Suh to be out of the league. What a shock that the coach doesn't have the stones to tell it like it is. Hard to believe Suh isn't more disciplined...(dripping sarcasm). Watch that Detroit ship sink...quickly.

There's no defending the indefensible.
