Evan Dietrich-Smith doesn’t think about Suh stomp anymore

The Packers will be in Detroit this weekend, leading some to remember their last November trip to the Motor City.

That was last Thanksgiving, of course, and it was when Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh stomped on Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith at the end of a play. Suh wound up being suspended two games as a result of the incident, which Suh has maintained was not intentional since it happened. Dietrich-Smith, who may be moving back into the starting lineup with Bryan Bulaga hitting injured reserve, said that he doesn’t spend any time thinking about last Thanksgiving.

“I don’t even think about it anymore. I think writers and stuff try to make more about it than it was, but it’s not really on my mind,” Dietrich-Smith said, via Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com.

Josh Sitton, whose absence forced Dietrich-Smith into the lineup last season, also downplayed the date with Suh. Unlike Dietrich-Smith, he indicated that it is on his mind at least a little bit.

“That’s something that’s in the past. We can’t really think about anything that’s gone on in the past,” Sitton said. “He just better not stomp me.”

You wouldn’t expect to see anything similar to last year during this week’s matchup between the Lions and Packers, but, then, you didn’t really expect to see Suh stomping anyone last year either.

    Suh thinks about it. It’s really the only thing that’s kept him relevant in the last two years, besides the car accidents.

    Does anybody in their right mind really expect Suh to do anything remotely close to last year again this game? Let it go, its over he served his suspension lost his paychecks and was voted 2X the dirtiest player in the league. the media won.

    That’s a very classy way to handle it. I would expect nothing less out of my Packers.

    Suh sure gets a lot of double teams for somebody who’s “not relevant”.

    Anybody making these comments identifies themself as a superficial fan who loves touchdowns and deep passes but really doesn’t understand the actual game of football. Or they’re just trying to get a reaction, like 50% of posts on here.

    funny thing is, no one i know remembers suh “stomping” in dietrich-smith…i remember him kicking him, but for a “stomp”, you need to see albert haynesworth stomping on andre gurode’s head.

    Yes. He’s shown a tendency to do these kind of things…(i.e. the hit on Jay Cutler) it’s only a matter of time. Besides, who’s telling him no. Certainly not his coach.

    Mercifully, we can finally eliminate the Lions from the playoff hunt this weekend and end all this unnecessary hype.

    Get your eyes checked. He stomped on his head. It’s been said many times many ways. Over and over again. Don’t feign ignorance.

    “Suh thinks about it. It’s really the only thing that’s kept him relevant in the last two years, besides the car accidents.”

    Pretty sure opposing OC’s are still accounting for him. Pretty sure blocking sceams are still being implemented to slow him down. Pretty sure I see on the TV weekly in commercials and what not with all his endorsement deals.
    Know whats not relevant? Answer: your thought on this situation

    Evan has been to busy deciding how many times he will try to un-tie Suh’s shoes to think about how he was stomped for said action last year

  11. shaggytoodle says: Nov 13, 2012 6:09 PM

    He is probably thinking of handling Suh the same way before the stomp occured.

    Taking him to school.

    most kids do learn to tie their shoes when they go to school, is this what you are referring to?

    Packer fans … go back and read about the stuff Ray Nietschke did, and then talk to me about a dirty player.

    And any player who is still obsessing about last year is not thinking about Sunday’s game.

    So the players were asked a question by a reporter, answered the question, and you say they are obsessing about what happened last year. I am befuddled.

    Lion fan quit pissing and moaning. Your team does STUPID stuff on the field, thus the hate, hence don’t take the bait. Each team has its knucklheads(Walden)that can’t stay out of trouble, America just loves piling on the D.

    No its a reference to the great pass protection he had on a play that should have been caught for a TD.

    ” he better not stomp on me”

    I had to laugh at that comment, here is how you do not get stomped by Suh,

    I know this is hard against Suh, but play straight up. Yeah he will run you over but at least you will have your dignity. Don’t play like that Packer cheater from last year. Ripping Suh’s shoes off, taking out Suh’s knees, and holding Suh in a position where another lineman tries to take out his legs. Hell yeah i would stomp, kick or anything else to a cheater pulling that crap trying to end me from doing what I love. And he was doing it because Suh was making him look bad all game.

    So just to recap before all you crybabies try coming at me, “how not to get stomped by Suh?” Respect the man and his talent and, i know this is hard for Packers, but don’t cheat with the little boy cheap shots.

    Of course you are befuddled. I never accused the players of obsessing. I said that any who were have their head in the wrong place. Some of your fellow Packer fans however … they’re totally obsessing. So maybe they should take a lead from the players.

    And again … considering the black and blue division history, Suh’s behavior is child’s play compared to stunts pulled by guy’s who have had their jersey retired and/or made the Hall of Fame.

    And actually … Max McGee would probably get banned for life by Goodell for having too much fun off the field.

    A bone-head play by Suh no doubt, but driving all their weight on a QB, or an O-lineman cutting the knees of the D-lineman, is cheap, also leaves serious injuries. His stomp is about as effective as hitting a guy with his helmet on. Stupid. Control your anger Suh.
