Raiders LB Vontaze Burfiict suspended for season

Recommended Posts

I feel like I've seen more egregious from Burfict. He was absolutely headhunting, but he's done worse.

He should be gone for the year. The league needs to make a point.

I honestly don't even know if he intends to hurt people or if he is so freaking stupid that he literally only knows how to tackle by jumping head first.

Wow...just seeing the clip for the 1st time. Definitely intentional and heinous. A long suspension is totally warranted.

I mean you're not wrong but the NFL/Goodell has so thoroughly screwed up the suspension protocol at this point that if they suspend Burfict forever it just brings back every other case where someone does something worse than headhunt off the field, then gets 2 games or 4 games or whatever.

Burfict has surpassed him at this point, but Meriweather was headhunting his entire career.

Good. I hate them all.

NFL included. If they all look bad, I’m loving it.

Regarding the impact for the Raiders, it's a big blow. His dirty play and hits like this are well-known, but he was a damn good LB for us this year so far. Not only as a player but he's the captain of the D, wears the green dot and knows the system to a T. Losing him is losing a lot more than just a physical LB. 

We need to bring in at least 2-3 more LB's even after promoting Phillips to the 53 and signing Dakota Allen from the Rams PS.

He can't play anymore. I'm not commenting on his character, I'm not commenting on his ability. I'm saying that we have categorical evidence that he is incapable of playing this game in a safe manner.

Who could have foreseen this could happen? You gotta feel sorry for the Raiders front office, guy has been a picture of virtue his whole career and in no way are they to blame for inviting this possibility.

I know the feel.  I would advise moving on from Burfict.  He can't help himself, and he pretty much gets suspended every season.  Can't rely on a player like that...
