As you may recall from Sunday, Ndamukong Suh nearly wrecked Jake Delhomme's season a little early with what was quite a nasty, um, tackle (for lack of a better word) .

Unsurprisingly, the topic came up during Monday's media availability with the Browns -- coach Eric Mangini acknowledged that the Browns would have the league look at the incident if for some reason they weren't already checking it out.

“Yes," Mangini said. "I’ve got to imagine whether we will, but whether we did or not, I’m sure they’ll look at it closely. When I met the kid, he’s a good kid, so I don’t think he’s a malicious guy. From what I know about him, it was just a poor decision.”

Fortunately, Mangini doesn't have to worry: NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed to CBSSports.com that the play is "already under review." (Even before hearing from Aiello, I would have bet my not-yet-first-born that the guys in the officiating compound were checking that one out a few times, but very good to hear that they are -- it was a dangerous play.)

Mangini also insinuated that he would have preferred that Suh be tossed from the game following the play.

"It put the quarterback at risk, but I’m not the official," Mangini said. "You know you don’t want to see that at any point. As I said, my experience with him in the draft process is that he’s a good kid and it was just not a great decision."

It's hard to fathom how the officials didn't see the play in real time and immediately think that it was a play -- especially in the preseason -- deserving of more than just a 15-yard facemask penalty.

But that's probably because they were too busy figuring out how Delhomme was able to fist-pump in celebration of the penalty when he should have more closely resembled that the dude from "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," only sans pumpkin. Little did they know, that's the "most Jake Delhomme thing" ever.

Swarm, I hate when I get jumped on for calling out the irony of the spelling, grammar, and syntax issues on this website.  I'm all about shorthand when needed, but if you're going to identify someone, or their thoughts and ideas, as "moronic", "stupid", "retarded", etc., with misspelled words and incomplete or fragmented sentences throughout your post, it completely defeats the purpose of making those comments.  As for the topic of the story, if any Lions fan doesn't like this (which I highly doubt there are) the Panthers fans would love to take him off your hands!

If this happened to Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, Suh would have already been fined and possibly suspended.  In this particular case the defensive tackle Suh is the bigger star, and the NFL looks out for its star players first.  If that was former league MVP out there getting his head detached from his body there would be insane media outrage, but its not it was Jake Delhomme.  The protect the QB mantra of the NFL is a farce.  There will be no fine or suspension, the league will not even respond to Cleveland's inquiry.
