In the 9:00 a.m. ET hour of NFL Network’s Gameday Morning, Jason LaCanfora dropped a potential bombshell regarding the Ndamukong Suh saga.
LaCanfora said that some in the Lions locker room believe Suh should be suspended.
That’s worth repeating. Some in the Lions locker room reportedly believe Suh should be suspended.
LaCanfora also said there’s a belief that the organization has “enabled” Suh. That’s a separate, but related, bombshell.
LaCanfora named no names, mentioning only that he gleaned the information from “talking to” players. I’ve heard similar rumblings, but others with knowledge of the dynamics of the locker room have not corroborated the notion that players think Suh should be suspended.
Objectively, there’s currently no evidence to support either view. On one hand, none have spoken out to support Suh. On the other hand, the players have been away from microphones in the three days since their loss to the Packers.
Based on LaCanfora’s report, it’s safe to say they’ll be asked about it.
And they should be. If players on the team believe Suh should be suspended and/or that the organization has enabled his behavior, it’s time to jump from the Detroit bandwagon for 2011, and possibly beyond.
