    This is the guy people wanted over Kendall Wright.

    They were making a huge point that DeCastro SHOULD be fined on NFL AM this morning. (The dude that looks like Buckwheat).

    It was no doubt a crackback block that went bad. Should be fined because it was as obvious on that film as any other film that is used to determine fines/suspensions.

    One more example of arbitrary rule enforcement.

    I'm one of those guys. I still think DeCastro is going to be a better/more impactful offensive player than Wright will be.

    Damn I never thought of it this way.. Good eye JCB.

    I'm pissed now, he could have injured Hill had that chop block been successful. I'm even more glad we stomped those scumbag Steelers in their own house now.

    Yeah- he does. I agree with almost everything he says. And he doesn't tow the NFL party line which I like. He'll just keep quiet when something the other guy is saying is just a bunch of NFL rhetoric/propoganda.

    Well, Suh's was worse only because there was seriously no reason to even touch that guy. I understand playing through the whistle and I'm all for that, but this was ridiculous - especially since he went low.

    DeCastro is just an idiot. Not your typical Stanford prospect. Then again Richard Sherman came from Stanford too.

    DeCastro got busted big time by karma. I was angry when I saw it during the game but LOL happy with the consequences.

    Not at his current rate.

    2012: Injures ACL/MCL, misses 11 games
    2013: Tears his teammate's ACL/MCL... and that teammate was their best o-lineman

    He's off to one of the worst starts of any first rounder in recent memory.

    I was also one of those guys who wanted DeCastro... glad we don't have that bum now. Sure, he might end up being a decent G in the league, but look who we got instead of him... Levitre and Warmack. Boom... they're both way better.

    Unlike Suh?

    The guy that Suh chop blocked couldn't have made that tackle if the ball carrier had stopped for a game of checkers.

    And everyone knew that including the victim of the block.

    If you watch the video, you can see him start to pull up.

    Either Suh did it to be dirty or is the dumbest person in the NFL.
    I know te latter isn't true because I've heard him talk.
