Smith tore off Incognitos helmet and used it as a weapon and his punishment was suspended 2 preseason games. No wonder the league is full of hoodlums.

I think the punishment should have been more sever. Maybe to deter something like this in the future.

I know some Houston fans who feared a suspension too but I don't think anyone saw it as a preseason kind of a thing. That's about as non-punishment as you get. It really is a joke. Had he actually connected with his face he could have done permanent damage.

A two game preseason suspension?  That's laughable.  Where's the big bad Kim Jong Goodell on this one?  Maybe other starters will get an idea.  Commit a serious violation in the first preseason game and end up with a two or three week vacation.

Update.  The NFL has suspended Smith for the remainder of the preseason plus week 1 of the regular season.  Combine this with the hit on Keller and Cushing trying to take off Tannehill's head, I'm led to believe that the Texans are a dirty team.

It looks like he hits him here but from another angle he seemed to miss.

Just like in the movies ... it's the angle. I can't find the video now but the first two I saw showed it missing. Fortunately Richie saw it coming and snapped back because that helmet could have caused some damaged.

I don't know how Pouncey didn't beat his ass after seeing that happen.

If Incognito was the one doing the swinging, he'd be suspended 4-6 games for certain.

Looks like Richie went with the flow of Smith grabbing his helmet, as not to hurt his neck so much.  Glad it wasn't worse.

I wonder if he connected and cracked Richie up-side the head with the helmet and gave him a concussion, or worse, if Brown would still only be suspended one game.

To me, it shouldn't matter if he connected or not.

Gotta wonder what kind of power a 6'4 300 lb man who probably benches over 450lbs could do with a weapon like a helmet? I bet it could have actually killed him it he connected.

I don't think that you should be allowed to be suspended for pre-season games at all.  Any suspensions must be regular season or playoffs.

I guess they don't get paid for camps and preseason games so it really is a vacation for a pro. I could see how it could hurt someone trying to make the team but not a starter.
