Ndamukong Suh: “Do I need Rodney White’s respect? No”

Ndamukong Suh AP

Falcons receiver Roddy White said after Sunday’s game in Detroit that he lost respect for Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh because Suh taunted an injured Matt Ryan.

Suh said today that he doesn’t particularly care if White respects him.

“Do I need Rodney White’s respect? No. Leave it at that,” Suh said.

Yes, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Suh called Roddy White “Rodney.” I’m not sure if Suh misspoke, if he doesn’t know White’s actual first name, or if he wanted to take a subtle dig at White by pretending not to know White’s actual first name. But it’s funny in any event.

Regarding the allegations that he and teammate Cliff Avril taunted Ryan, Suh pointed out the same thing that Lions coach Jim Schwartz pointed out today: Ryan was surrounded by the Falcons’ medical staff and out of earshot of any alleged trash talk while he was down on the field.

“I’m not even near their quarterback so how am I going to trash talk somebody that has a medical staff that’s all around him?” Suh said.

Suh also accused the Falcons’ offensive line of dirty play and said it was fitting that Falcons offensive lineman Will Svitek was the one who hurt Ryan by accidentally stepping on his foot.

“To me it’s karma,” Suh said. “For all the bad stuff they’ve done in the past, their offensive lineman hurt their own quarterback. So I’ll leave it at that.”

So as far as Suh is concerned, that ends this week’s round of accusations that he’s a dirty player. But with the Lions in Denver next week, we can expect a whole new round of controversy if Suh takes a shot at Tim Tebow.

    Love how Ndamukong has trouble pronouncing other peoples name

  2. PhillieBirds says: Oct 24, 2011 4:37 PM

    If this dude is dirty, and he very well may be, I’d love to have someone like him on my team.

  3. rdawg911 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:38 PM

    This is actually hilarious.

  4. nfloracle says: Oct 24, 2011 4:39 PM

    Won’t happen with Tebow. There’s a hedge of protection around him from the man upstairs.

  5. h3min1230 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:39 PM

    Dirtiset stud in the NFL.

  6. howley1 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:40 PM

    Does anybody want to talk about how crappy the Lions’ DL is starting to look against the run? Last three weeks:

    Matt Forte 22 for 116
    Frank Gore 15 for 141
    Michael Turner 27 for 122

  7. jdandcoke says: Oct 24, 2011 4:40 PM

    i think the football rooting world is beginning to lose respect for the notion that the lions are a legit team….and i’ll leave it at that.

  8. carnboys says: Oct 24, 2011 4:40 PM

    Ndamukong Suh is starting off his career on the wrong foot.

  9. bangitfootball says: Oct 24, 2011 4:40 PM

    SUH has held the title as the biggest punk in pro football for a while now.

  10. sullijo1 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:41 PM

    He went to Nebraska….what do you really expect from this guy???

  11. chocolatebaconbutter says: Oct 24, 2011 4:41 PM

    You gotta watch out for Rodney White. That guy will torch you.

    We’ll see how they fare next week against Tom Teebone.

  12. dfeltz says: Oct 24, 2011 4:42 PM

    Suh has never even played against the Falcons before until Sunday. So what is he talking about when mentioning “things they’ve done in the past?” Sounds a lot like here say. Looks like the mighty Lions are becoming the Lions we are all used to seeing – minus Megatron.

  13. nineroutsider says: Oct 24, 2011 4:43 PM

    Like his team, this guy is overrated. He looks big and imposing, but notice how everyone is running right at him now for big gains.

    I will…’just leave it at that.’

    So does he need Roddy’s respect, no; he should want the respect of OC’s and it seems he isn’t getting it.

    Are the Lions going to get beat by Tebow??

  14. realnflmaster says: Oct 24, 2011 4:43 PM

    I hope this load tears his ACL.

    GO GIANTS.

  15. sundayisthebestday says: Oct 24, 2011 4:44 PM

    Tebow better say a few extra prayers this week.

  16. norseyapper says: Oct 24, 2011 4:44 PM

    Suh is a great player. One of the best to come along at his position in quite a while.
    That said, if he wants to keep his knees functional he had best learn to respect the veteran players of the league.
    Who cares if he’s shouting trash at a downed QB but if he continues to foster a deserved rep for taking cheap shots at the league’s darlings someone is going to mess him up.

  17. donterrelli says: Oct 24, 2011 4:46 PM

    “But with the Lions in Denver next week, we can expect a whole new round of controversy if Suh takes a shot at Tim Tebow.”

    I’ll bet Tebow has some of those Vatican agents watching his back.

  18. iamthorny says: Oct 24, 2011 4:47 PM

    Ya gotta love the matchup with Tebow…

    Heaven vs. Hell

    Good vs. Evil

    Nice vs. Naughty

    3rd string talent QB, if that vs. Franchise DT

  19. millertime30 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:47 PM

    I want to like Ndamukong Suh. Really, I do.

    Unfortunately he seems to be intent on doing anything and everything in his power, in order to prevent that from happening. I blame Jim Schwartz. He’s a buffoon.

    Go Cowboys

  20. dansyndersux says: Oct 24, 2011 4:47 PM

    Once a punk, always a punk.

  21. jamaltimore says: Oct 24, 2011 4:47 PM

    Good for SUH! In the waterdown everybody hug every body league it’s good to see someone with a little bit of the dog in em on the field. He’s QB had his ankle stepped on. TOO BAD! I mean seriously, SUH seems like a good guy off the field but in between the lines he’s there to inflict pain and help his team win. Linemen cheat on everyplay so this dirty thing is just something for all the old washed up players who now make a living talking to old washed up newspaper talking heads about every stupid story line that their editors want them to talk about after Sunday’s games.

  22. steelbydesign says: Oct 24, 2011 4:47 PM

    I’m not a Lions fan at all but I love this guy. His job is to get to the QB and he does that, amd doesn’t care about anything else. Anyone that’s ever played any kind of contact sport knows that intimidation can be a big part of the game.

    Football is supposed to be a man’s sport, and Suh plays it that way.

    Everyone that wants to cry and point fingers calling him dirty needs to put on a dress and go watch soccer, where the players flop everytime someone comes within a few feet of them.

  23. 4512dawg4512 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:47 PM

    Suh just isn’t doing much of anything to improve is off field image is he?

  24. readysethike says: Oct 24, 2011 4:48 PM

    This whole story is starting to get annoying

  25. broncotis3000 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:48 PM

    Hey Suh, I see a chop block in your future…it may not happen this week,but it will sooner or later…

  26. fatcamper says: Oct 24, 2011 4:48 PM

    There won’t be any controversy if he takes a cheap shot at Tebow. Jesus, who I prefer to picture wearing a tuxedo T-shirt, will simply strike Suh dead for going after the chosen one.

  27. calibronco24 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:48 PM

    That guy is a fool. He’ll be out of the league sooner than later if he keeps his “bad boy” image up. Let’s see how many personal fouls he has next week.

  28. lacharger2112 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:49 PM

    I think they are both idiot’s. So, I’ll leave it at that.

  29. steeltuff says: Oct 24, 2011 4:49 PM

    Ndamukong is trying to be like Mean Joe Greene, but he hasn’t quite reached that echilon. He needs more sacks, more Cokes and a little more class.

  30. sullijo1 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:49 PM

    Tebow is Christian, not Catholic……just for clarification on the Vatican reference above.

  31. sneschalmers says: Oct 24, 2011 4:50 PM

    He actually prefers “Ruxin”…

  32. camjon32 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:50 PM

    If in fact Suh said the things he’s being accused of saying, not cool. I’m worried that my Lions are falling victim to the classic “we’re as good as the media says we are” crap.

    They have to continue playing like they have something to prove, because up until now, they’ve proven very little. I have faith they will right the ship however, they’re too talented not to.

    Go Lions and Suh, let your play do your talking!!!

  33. americankris says: Oct 24, 2011 4:50 PM

    No you dont need his respect but your team needs to stop the run , hell get back on your game . Why are you talking about the falcons? Worry about Tebow who last time I checked is a better runner than passer. Lions 3 game losing streak book it

    Falcon Fan

  34. finsbooyah says: Oct 24, 2011 4:50 PM

    Rodney (Dangerfield) White – “I get no respect”. Pretty clever Mr. Suh.

  35. 49erstim says: Oct 24, 2011 4:51 PM

    he sounds like a pretty poor sport. how can you be happy another player got hurt? Thats the kind of poor sportsmanship this game doesnt need. Shame on you Mr “Sue”.

  36. porkchopexpress1969 says: Oct 24, 2011 4:51 PM

    Suh just needs to shut up and play football.

  37. gridassassin says: Oct 24, 2011 4:52 PM

    Look out Goose – this guy is angling for your job with a one liner like that.

  38. dudicle says: Oct 24, 2011 4:55 PM

    So if Matt Ryan’s injury was to be blamed on bad karma, how do you explain the injury to your quarterback, Matthew Stafford? And the loss? So some people deserve to get injured?

    Look, I think everybody should have kept their mouths shut, and Suh would have been smart to do the same. You aren’t helping yourself, here, Suh.

  39. vikingssoxfrustration says: Oct 24, 2011 4:56 PM

    Respect…Rodney…Dangerfield reference? It’d be epic if he actually meant that…

    im from o.c. cali., so i dont have a fav team. i just love good football and its fun rooting for a good story. i was having fun, like most others, watchin the lions but after this, i could care less if they won or lost every game from here on out.

  42. kalispellmt says: Oct 24, 2011 4:57 PM

    Even as a Bears fan, I have been rooting for these guys to be a great team, but not if it’s gonna be like this. Get some class, guys, and keep it.

  43. shibbyleigh says: Oct 24, 2011 5:00 PM

    I can’t help but notice a common theme when teams play Atlanta: the Falcons accusing the other team of being dirty and whining like babies. Who is the common denominator in the midst of this?

    P.S. your QB is a Sally.

    – Not a Lions fan.

    The numbers look good for the RBs but really all three of those RBs were held largely in check. The defense has given up some big runs but 9 out of 10 of those carries have gone for 2 or 3 yards before they break a big one. Forte and Turner had almost no impact at all

  45. hatesycophants says: Oct 24, 2011 5:05 PM

    Good to see you still have a sense of humor, Smiff. This guy is funny, intelligent, articulate and giving of his time and money off the field. At work, he is a monster. He is the 2011 version of Ricky… errrrr… Reggie White. What more could you ask for?

    Also, wishing an injury on a player is about the lowest thing a “fan” can do. Hope you get the “attention” you deserve.

    Go Lions! Go Badgers!

    Every snap is on film. He’s saying that the Falcons’ film from this year shows some dirty O-line play.

  47. bombacim says: Oct 24, 2011 5:11 PM

    Maybe he should worry more about his own QB’s issues with injuries before he gets on another QB’s… The sky is falling in Detroit. Fast. All teams have to do now is pin ears back and put a helmet on stafford. He won’t make it out of this year without being on injured reserve.

  48. voiceofrealism says: Oct 24, 2011 5:13 PM

    God has already punished the boy named Suh. He stuck him on the Lions.

  49. philly4lyfe says: Oct 24, 2011 5:14 PM

    Really wish suh was an eagle.

  50. tdk24 says: Oct 24, 2011 5:16 PM

    Hey Suh, you can choose 1 of 2 paths in this league. You can choose to the path of a Shawn Merriman, or you can choose the path of a Bruce Smith. It looks like you are leaning towards the path of Merriman, which is a shame. One day you may learn it’s possible to be a tough guy and a nice guy. But until that day, i hear your QB is in a walking cast, hahahahahahahaha, yuk yuk yuk, what a chump, must be karma, you ain’t gonna win no more games, call an ambulance, he’s soft like your HC (who looks like an ugly chic by the way)

  51. ilovefoolsball says: Oct 24, 2011 5:16 PM

    These Lions don’t know how to deal with success yet.
    I believe they will fall victim to early season success.
    Stafford is injury prone.
    Suh gives opposing teams more bulletin board material, then they just run right at him.
    Calvin Johnson is the true star on that team but he’s only as good as the qb throwing to him.

  52. nflofficeadmin says: Oct 24, 2011 5:16 PM

    If Tebow gets hurt playing against this guy, then he will really know the wrath of public opinion.

  53. marinofreakout says: Oct 24, 2011 5:18 PM

    anytime i see suh in the press its about something badass. the nfl may be goin soft, but suh isnt….and thats awesome. glad we got some new blood with some old school qualities in this league.

  54. flipadelphia says: Oct 24, 2011 5:21 PM

    Everyone hates Suh on here because he’s not on your team.

    Sounds like jealousy.

    And if you say you wouldn’t take him on your squad you’re a straight up liar.

  55. rc33 says: Oct 24, 2011 5:21 PM

    He’s being dumb about this. Ticking off (and disrespecting) the entire league just isn’t a smart way to go about things in your second season. Maybe when some O.L. accidently, inadvertently rolls up on his leg, he’ll figure it out then.
    Play hard, play tough; that’s the game. Hell, you really don’t even have to play within the rules. But this guy plays cheap, dirty and disrespectfully.
    Furthermore pinhead, your fines are at $20K now and are only gonna get worse.

  56. bleedpurplenblack says: Oct 24, 2011 5:23 PM

    Just imagine Suh in Baltimore, teaming up on the DL with Haloti Ngata.

    Complete domination.

  57. dirtyjersey9er says: Oct 24, 2011 5:24 PM

    People talk about Suh acts as if this wasn’t commonplace back in the day. I’d hate to see the reaction now if the Chuck Bednarik hit on Frank Gifford happened now.

    I like how Suh plays dirty or not. Sure he is a dirty player but everyone calling him dirty would be defending him if he played on your team.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I suppose when the Lions started honoring that same run game from those 2 teams, that may have opened the passing game to guys like Tony Gonzalez, Roddy White, Devin Hester, Johnny Knox, and retread Roy Williams….don’t you think???

    I’m guessing you know more about needlepoint and craftbooking than you do about football.

    Wow….brilliant statement.

  59. detroitrollin22 says: Oct 24, 2011 5:25 PM

    I love how people on here call Suh a “punk” and overrated, but in all honesty they would love to have him on their team. And you know this is the damn truth.

    Do people cry about Ray Lewis? Did people cry about Ditka, about Butkus, about any Steelers defensive player in the 70’s-80s-90s?

    Gosh damn grow some balls. I’m sick of all this talk about players being dirty when they play agressive and hard (like football players used to do in the 70s-80s-and 90s). There’s a difference between playing dirty and playing agressive, and if you actually watch an entire game you’d realize that Suh plays hard and agresssive not dirty. Dirty players aim for headshots and punch in piles and Suh does non of that.

    Football is a game of toughness if you dont want to deal with trash talking then go play soccer.

    It is possible to be a great player and have nobody’s respect. That seems to be where he’s aiming, but it’s a lot easier to lose everyone’s respect than it is to be great player.

  62. footballfanman says: Oct 24, 2011 5:34 PM

    Nobody said he talked mess to Matt Ryan, it was said he made fun of him being hurt and it was overheard by Roddy White. No one said he got in Ryan’s face and talked junk to him.

    ——————————————–

    That’s a little bit of fuzzy math. Gore was averaging an astounding 9.4 yards per carry during that game. Saying he held him to mostly 2 or 3 yard attempts makes me wonder if you actually watched the game. As a team they piled up 203 yards of rushing. I don’t know how you could say they were held in check.

    In fact they were having more success running it up the middle then the outside. Gore, who almost always goes through the middle averaged 9.4 yards per carry but when Hunter went to the outside he only averaged 4.1 yards per carry.

    Still, the Lions defensive line was dominated by the 49ers and Suh was a non-factor. Suh had only two tackles, no sacks and never even got close to putting pressure on Smith.

    That shouldn’t be surprising. Suh has been decidedly average when it comes to getting to the Quarterback. He’s tied for 28th with 3 sacks this season. Right now he’s a lot of hype until he starts showing the talent everyone talks about on the field.

  64. sterilizecromartie says: Oct 24, 2011 5:43 PM

    This guy is turning out to be a real jerk. There is nothing wrong with playing hard and being physical. But taunting injured players and purposely mispronouncing people names? I’m becoming less and less a fan of this guy. Grow up and start showing your peers some respect.

  65. doug2626 says: Oct 24, 2011 5:43 PM

  69. tennesseeinsurance says: Oct 24, 2011 5:48 PM

    I have been disappointed in the Lions D Line this year. Every analyst always gives them too much respect, but if you look at the numbers. They are right around average. I think they need to rush a linebacker or safety more often to free up each lineman so they are not double teamed (another reason why Suh’s numbers are bad is because he’s always double teamed.

    If these numbers are opposing RB “held largely in check”, I’d like to see what the numbers would be like when they are not held in check.

    Why would anyone want Suh on their team. He trash talks, he doesn’t back it up and then he allegedly taunts down players.

    I think it’s funny that he’s talking about karma when his own QB is now injured.
    I think Lions are on their way down again.

  72. philgrek says: Oct 24, 2011 6:20 PM

    “I’m not even near the quarterback”….

    is he just stupid? He’s standing right beside him when he goes down. If you watch the play he’s literally standing right next to Matt Ryan as he’s lying on the ground.

    Are Suh and Jim Schwartz (who’s point of view couldn’t be more worthless) really trying to spin it like Suh and Avril were nowhere near Matt Ryan at any point after the play? Matt Ryan just hit the turf and they ran off out of ear shot? Just ignorant

  73. nevin999 says: Oct 24, 2011 6:21 PM

    Suh might be a mean SOB but don’t cry for Atlanta… they endorse players like Dunta Robinson, one heck of a dirty football player.

  74. dlmcc1010 says: Oct 24, 2011 6:23 PM

    In an age of soft, politically correct BS, its refreshing to see a guy like Suh who just doesnt give a flying F about what the right thing to say may be. These guys say things to each other in the trenches that are probably terrible. Thats fine. I dont want to see these guys using their helmets as a battering ram, but I dont want to see them act like they love one another either. Grow a set and grow a thicker skin. Im sure he was making fun of him. Who cares? Its not like he pulled a Haynesworth and raked his cleats on the guys head.

  75. dannomac21 says: Oct 24, 2011 6:30 PM

    i was having a good time reading all the comments until i read that someone said suh is the 2011 version of reggie white.

    different positions. different approaches. different attitudes. different success.

    for the love of mankind, please dont ever make that comparison again. mother of god.

  76. bucks12965 says: Oct 24, 2011 6:32 PM

    Yet it’s Suh talking about ‘karma’ the day after his team lost.

    Is it karma that causes Stafford (a guy I like, going back to his Georgia days) to get injured several times a year and has him in a walking boot now?

    Is it karma that the Lions DL has looked terrible against the run and are 28th in the league against the run?

    After the business against the 49ers last weeks and now the Falcons, I believe you need to reserve that Wahmbulance for the Lions.

    A lot of respect has been lost for him and the entire Detroit organization. Very, very mouthy team even though they’ve accomplished nothing in the last 20 years and appear to be slipping to mediocrity again this season.

    Suh and the Lions seem to be getting sucked into their own hype. They’re out there runnin’ around like raging maniacs, shouting curses and obscenities at the other team, pushing and jostling after the whistle, celebrating every first down like they are God’s gift ——

    and that’s just their head coach.

    It’s kinda sad how a 5-2 record can go to your head, and how you can forget that YOUR OWN quarterback isn’t exactly on a Farvian ironman streak.

    I guess I wouldn’t be saying what he was allegedly saying with Stafford as my QB.

    If Suh doesn’t care or need the respect of one of his peers, then how does he feel about non Lion fans? Most people on this site has never played the game above pop warner I’m willing to bet, so I understand all the emotion over Suh’s style of play. Many have even said he’s overrated and hasn’t done anything yet. Which points directly to their football IQ. I understand that Nerds have computers and feel closer to the game as they peck away on a keyboard, but make it easier for those that know football and want to discuss football to have an actual football related conversation! You guys are talking about whether you like a guy, or respect a guy, when he wouldn’t know you from a hole in the wall. Stop being so emotional, or start taking your estrogen pills again!!

    He may no need the respect of Roddy White, but he better shut his mouth now before he loses respect from other folks around the NFL. Believe it that every major sports network has fund negative stories on his team for two weeks in a row. Also, Mr Sue – you have now lost 2 games in a row and that is called a “losing streak”. All too familiar in the dirty City you call home. Shut up until you and your team become relevent enough to even converse about.

  82. hatesycophants says: Oct 24, 2011 6:58 PM

    @dan,

    I am well aware of the position White played and the one Suh plays. Your post is evidence that you don’t know much about either. Reggie was called a dirty player as well. He was no angel on the field and he was quite vocal off it. The comparison is apt.

    For those ranking Suh’s sacks this season, his job isn’t to get sacks. His job is to reek havoc in the backfield so other defenders (backs, safeties et al) can get sacks.

    Go Lions! Go Badgers!

    Uh, hello… this is a blog that thrives and encourages us “nerds” (aka fans) to give our opinions on the subject at hand. That’s kind of why there is a comment section here. Ok? Whether we are nerd bloggers of former NFL players has nothing to do with whether or not we are allowed to give our opinion on a subject or player. Do you not understand that? Or do I need to talk slower and with shorter sentences?

    “Ndamukong Suh is starting off his career on the wrong foot.”

    Ya, Matt Ryan’s.

  85. gosuhgo says: Oct 24, 2011 7:47 PM

    This “Suh needs to get chop blocked” crap needs to end. I mean, what has he actually done? Who has he actually injured? What, did he push Cutler too hard? Scare Andy Dalton? It’s ridiculous that everyone wants a young players career to end because they’re afraid of him being too mean.

  86. timmihendrix says: Oct 24, 2011 7:51 PM

    I’m a lions fan but i’ll be the first to admit that suh is not dominating like he did last year. He gets trapped to easily but is that his fault or the scheme that he is playing? Regardless he is not rushing the passer as well either. He is certainly mean & nasty but so were Jon Randle, Bruce Smith, and Reggie White and they are legends. It obvious to anyone who actually watched the game that the falcons were and are trying to use his reputation against him. That OL him him after the whistle then flopped like manu ginnobilli when suh pushed him back, watch the tape. I don’t mind guys trying to get him to do something stupid but flopping is why soccer is not a sport and part of why nobody cares about the NBA lock-out. It’s a man’s game and your 300lbs, act like it.

  87. bubbajon46 says: Oct 24, 2011 7:52 PM

    Love the attention that some he said she said story gets… If the things that are stated were really said…then why was there no retaliation from the Falcons players???? If my QB goes down and someone is taunting and kicking him… There is going to be a Riot!!!… Move on…You won the game and the rest is now history…

  88. Mr. Wright 212 says: Oct 24, 2011 7:54 PM

    GOD I LOVE SUH.

  89. forwarddownthefield says: Oct 24, 2011 7:54 PM

    I can’t believe I just wasted as much time as I just did reading some of the garbage posted on this site. This is football people, not soccer, not basketball…football. Oh no, Suh yelled at a guy. Call Goodell.Suspension! Fine! Give me a break. I’m sure the Falcons a squeeky clean.

    Suh has never even played against the Falcons before until Sunday. So what is he talking about when mentioning “things they’ve done in the past?” Sounds a lot like here say. Looks like the mighty Lions are becoming the Lions we are all used to seeing – minus Megatron.

    >>>>>>>>>

    ummmm, you’ve heard of film right? you know these professional football players watch film to prepare, right? I mean they only have 16 camera angels to see the dirty plays .

    i am not a Lions fan but I love Suh. he plays pre-Goodell football which i think real football fans can appreciate.

    PS – yes I know the game started to get softer before Goodell took over

  91. xxbomberxx says: Oct 24, 2011 8:03 PM

    Thats it Suh,Show these punks it doesnt pay to play dirty!!!

    Sincerely,
    The Green Bay Packers

  92. scudbot says: Oct 24, 2011 8:10 PM

    This “Suh needs to get chop blocked” crap needs to end. I mean, what has he actually done?

    Example: Andy Dalton’s debut game, long after a play was dead. Remember? He’s a punk and he shoots his mouth off too much.

  93. scudbot says: Oct 24, 2011 8:11 PM

    I don’t want to see Suh or anyone else get injured. But I don’t like the way he disrespects the game.

  94. peopletrains says: Oct 24, 2011 8:44 PM

    Suh was already an intimidating player before he started turning into knucklehead. He doesn’t need to go in that direction. I was sort of drawn to the Lions success this year but their antics as of late leave me second guessing myself.

  95. waltdawg says: Oct 24, 2011 9:24 PM

    Since when did Suh start mispronouncing names? I mean with a name like Ndamokhung? Really? Shouldn’t he at least respect one like Roddy…Seems easy enough to me

  96. dfeltz says: Oct 24, 2011 9:30 PM

    For those of you saying that the tape doesn’t lie, why is it that Atlanta’s dirty o-line play hasn’t been a story the previous 6 weeks? Suh is just talking to talk and can’t man up that he is getting a slight case of Lavar Arringtonitis. Incredibly talented and zero discipline.

  97. barnesaintnoble says: Oct 24, 2011 11:23 PM

    I hate when people use the word/philosophy karma without knowing anything about it. Do some research, read about it, understand the concept – then use it.

    Like his team, this guy is overrated. He looks big and imposing, but notice how everyone is running right at him now for big gains.

    I will…’just leave it at that.’

    So does he need Roddy’s respect, no; he should want the respect of OC’s and it seems he isn’t getting it.

    Are the Lions going to get beat by Tebow??
    ———————–

    Ok, he gets no respect huh….the man is double and triple teamed damn near every play. Funny how niners fans are still talking about the lions……..I will “just leave it at that!”

  99. childressrulz says: Oct 24, 2011 11:54 PM

    Suh is a POS! I never hope a player gets hurt but I will make an exception for Suh.

  100. pb420 says: Oct 25, 2011 12:45 AM

    I have to say, reading all the “go play soccer nancy” comments, you do know Suh played soccer growing up right? Not a soccer fan, but I enjoy the irony. Also explains the agility that he possesses for a D-lineman of his size. Just hope that all the trash talk doesn’t overshadow his abilities in the NFL, cuz that would be a shame. He could take some humility lessons from Megatron, that guy produces every wk and you don’t hear much from him. He chooses to let his playmaking abilities do the talking, and rightfully so.

  101. vomitingliberals says: Oct 25, 2011 1:03 AM

    Liberals are sissifying the game enough already. Leave Suh ALONE!

  102. 1fast84 says: Oct 25, 2011 2:10 AM

    Man i’m glad to see all the responses praising suh for bringing back real football. Suh is a defensive player and should hate anyone on the opposing team and should wish the worst for them on the field. It’s sad that this is even a story. That just shows that nfl is getting too soft. I mean you cant hit the qb, you cant lead with the helmet now you cant trash talk. These guys make more money in 1 year than most ppl ever make. They should have the crap knocked out of them and earn them millions.
