Opposing players are getting fed up with Suh

While it was wrong for Cardinals guard Paul Fanaika to dive awkwardly (twice) at the knees of Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, we may be seeing more of it.

In response to our item from last night with video proof of Suh driving a fist or elbow into the helmet of Cardinals tackle Eric Winston, we’ve heard from at least one player who says that there’s a growing sense in NFL circles that players have had enough of Suh’s antics.

“I’ll be interested to see how things go for him for the rest of the year,” the player said.  The rest of the year starts today, against Washington.

The league presumably has had enough, too.  Still, it’s unclear why Suh hasn’t been disciplined for his latest transgression.

Previously, the league office missed it and the Cardinals didn’t raise it.  As a result, some players wonder whether players should have the ability to make complaints directly to the league office, either in their own name or anonymously.

While it could get petty quickly, having a hotline (like the one the NFL uses to report that players may be hiding concussions) would give the NFL the ability to go look at the film and make their own conclusions.

In this case, it would have been simple to confirm that the blow to the head occurred.  It’s much harder to spot it when generally looking at game film.

Moving forward, every snap involving Suh will likely be scrutinized carefully — both to see what he is doing and to see what is being done to him.

    I know there are people here in the DC area that are concerend Suh will intentionally try to injure RG3 with a cheapshot today.

    my question is why isn’t the union stepping in to protect their players? Isn’t that one of the purposes of the players union?

    “I’ll be interested to see how things go for him for the rest of the year,”

    This is the only quote, from one sole anonymous player, yet it merits the headline “Opposing players are getting fed up with Suh.”

    Why are you trying so hard to get him suspended for a play that occurs in every nfl game?

    Opposing players are also sick of Aaron Rodgers embarrassing defensive backs. What about their feelings?

    Opposing players understand there is a media campaign against Suh, and even tho he’s never hurt a player any “sympathy” a lineman can get from the media will excuse any attempt to take Suh out. Any hold will be considered a necessity to keep Suh from killing a QB.

    One video angle does’t prove it was a blow to the head. He is ripping his hands free. Contact to the head happens on rip moves and swim moves trying to disengage.

    This was not a Decon Jones head slap.

    I’ll be watching the Skins-Lions game with interest to see if Suh tries to snap Griffin’s leg Theisman style.

    Suh is the man!! Go lions!!!

    I think the players would rather decapitate him on the field. I expect fights to start, at least.

    suh is the man, kick some butt!

    When he does end someones career, it will be interesting to see if that player brings the NFL to court for not acting in a more decisive, permanent, way. The sheer number of violations, in relation to the number of years that he has been in the NFL, speaks volumes.

    The guy is a menace, plain and simple.

    Another example of the hypocrisy of unions. Fight every attempt the NFL makes to fine and suspend guys for this then whine when the NFL doesn’t do enough to stop it.

    Write letters to the companies that Suh endorses and say you will not buy their product because of the type of dirty player he is.

    Ah, the daily Suh Witch Hunt is in effect! He’s 20-feet tall, eats kittens for lunch and washes them down with your momma. HAHAHAHA! :-) This is just so much entertainment. Keep it coming, PFTMZ.

    In a league that is fine-drunk, this doesn’t make any sense. Maybe they don’t have the tape? Seems like the league needs to buy Roger a DVR for Xmas. I think they can afford it.

    Chop him all day. ALL DAY.

    Suh is trash.

    Unfortunately he has a coach with the emotional restraint of a two year old. It’s all about leadership.

    Poor Lions – all they have is dirty play, since they won’t be winning anything anytime soon
