Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh still hasn’t spoken about his, um, interaction with Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on Thanksgiving. However, Suh has no qualms when it comes to talking about his ambitions.
“I do see multiple Super Bowl rings in my future, especially with the team we have now,” Suh says in an upcoming issue of ESPN The Magazine, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. “We’re a team where if we don’t make mistakes, we are insanely dangerous.”
Some would say that some of the players have been dangerous off the field, insanely or otherwise.
Suh was dangerous, sort of, last Thanksgiving, when he stomped on the arm of Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith. But Suh, who presumably spoke before Thursday’s game, says he has matured.
“I definitely understand how to channel my aggression in a productive way,” uh said. “There are many reasons. One is I went through that situation last Thanksgiving. But also, any man, any child grows up. You learn from your mistakes or you go backward. I’m the kind of person who wants to move forward. My fire is still there. And when I get a full opportunity to unleash my fire, it’s like the hit I put on [Chicago Bears quarterback Jay] Cutler. By no means am I trying to hurt him, but I am going 100 [mph] and trying to get him as quickly and as hard down to the ground as possible. That’s the way I show my dominance, and I am going to continue to do that. If that situation happens again with Cutler, I’m gonna hit him the same way, if not harder.”
While Suh won’t be suspended for his successful attempt to bring Schaub to the ground in a non-traditional way, Suh likely will be fined.
Whether he’ll will multiple Super Bowls is slightly less clear.
