Why was Redskins Meriweather suspended for 2 games when Suh has more penalties?

brandonI am lost at words today, because Brandon Meriweather has been suspended for two games.  I understand that this is his 6th time being fined for unnecessary roughness, but how can we suspend him for 2 games when Ndamukong Suh has been penalized 7 times?

Sixth violation of unnecessary roughness rules triggers two-game suspension for Washington S Brandon Meriweather 

Yesterday I watched a video of John Clayton on ESPN, claiming that Ndamukong Suh the Detroit Lions defensive tackle has been suspended 7 times in the past three years for over 240,000 dollars in fines.  I do not get how you can suspend a player with less infractions for two games, but not suspend Suh?

Last night Torrey Smith even stated on his twitter that he feels Meriweather should not be suspended. 

“I don’t think he should be suspended,” Smith wrote, “but I don’t make or enforce the rules…I just play.”

I honestly don’t know about the process, but if I am the agent of Meriweather we are fighting this and making it a big scene.  What do you think?
