The NFL is suspending Chicago Bears CB Manning one game for beating someone unconscious in a Denny's near UCLA. He was aided in this endeavor by former Bruins Tyler Ebell and Maurice Jones-Drew (now with the Jaguars). Manning pleaded nolo contendere and received 3 years probation & 100 hours community service.
Manning's agent said, "It's a somewhat bitter pill to swallow." Although probably not as bitter as having Manning, Ebell and Jones-Drew punch & kick you unconscious after an "argument."
Suspension of the Bears INT leader (4) will cause him to miss the upcoming game versus the Patriots. The Bears secondary will have to lean harder on sturdy young Charles "Peanut" Tillman.
Urlacher, commenting on the suspension: "It stinks! I don't know why they did it this week. That's the NFL for you."
Yeah, that's the NFL for you.
And next time Manning's Moons over My Hammy better not take 45 minutes to arrive at his table.
I said doubled, smothered and covered, bitch!
