Ndamukong Suh admits Hall of Fame aspirations

Ndamukong Suh has played only seven seasons, but that hasn’t stopped him from considering his legacy. The Dolphins defensive tackle admits he has Hall of Fame aspirations.

I’d be lying to you if I said I didn’t,” Suh said, via Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald. “Everybody thinks about the Hall of Fame. One of the first trips I took, I remember going to the Hall of Fame in Canton. I’ve been a couple of times. I went to see teammates there for breaking particular records — Calvin [Johnson], Matt Stafford, other guys like that. I’d love to be a part of it. Charlie Sanders, one of the best [tight ends] in Detroit Lions history, to be there with him, to see his bust, and obviously unfortunately he passed recently, it was special to me. I was really close to him. But yeah, of course you think about the Hall of Fame. But I’m very young. I think at this stage, I have a lot of work ahead of me.”

Suh has made five Pro Bowls and four times has earned All-Pro. He has 260 tackles and 47 tackles. Warren Sapp, the last defensive tackle to earn Hall of Fame induction, made 64.5 of his 96.5 career sacks in his first seven seasons. Sapp played 13 seasons and made seven Pro Bowls and four times was All-Pro.

“I think I’ve always prided myself on wanting to be a guy who’s been very similar to the greats,” Suh said. “Obviously, Reggie White, Warren Sapp, guys at that caliber that have changed the game from that particular position. But I’m only eight years into the league. They played many, many more years than me.”

    Then stop with all the dumb penalties and opponent-stomping.

    He’ll step on whoever he has to to get there.

    I think he should be there; he has maintained an unparalleled success in his generation… no one else in the modern era has been as consistently as dirty as him.

    Was a beast with the Lions. Now? I dunno.

    “He has 260 tackles and 47 tackles.”

    I think that is supposed to be 47 sacks.

    Chased the money……and hasn’t made that much of a difference in Miami……

    I would take Wilfork’s career over Suh’s.

    Take a lesson from TO…don’t be a d!ck.

    Good luck, I want to win the lottery next week. We have about the same chance.

    Good thoughts and well deserved if it comes to fruition.

    Would your metal bust in the HOF be of you stepping on players while they are on the ground? Dirtiest player in the NFL by far.

    Remember the press does the voting for the Hall……Suh has always been a jerk with the press.

    Ricky Waters had a bad attitude and admitted to loafing on one play. He’ll never be in the HOF. Suh shouldn’t get fit for a gold jacket just yet

    He sucks, he just looks good doing it.

  15. hawks4me says: Jun 14, 2017 6:11 PM

    He can buy a ticket to get in, just like the rest of us.

  16. hksteelerfan says: Jun 14, 2017 7:42 PM

    He deserves an orange jumpsuit more than a gold jacket.

  17. lks311 says: Jun 14, 2017 8:20 PM

    I’m a Lions fan and he certainly has the talent to make it there, but, I think chasing the money will be remembered by voters—so, he’s going to have to ratchet it up a notch or two.

    He’s matured on the field and has been shedding his dirty image since his early Detroit years. He’s consistently been one of the top five DT’s since he’s been in the league. He is constantly being double teamed and if he’s singled up, he almost always blows his opponent off his block.

    I didn’t know there was a “Joke Hall of Fame”

    The press also votes for All Pro and he’s got 4 of those, so…

    He’s not HOF material at this time, let’s be honest.
