Suh on Brady: “My job is to piss him off”

As the Dolphins prepare to face the Patriots again, Miami defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh prepares to try to get under the skin of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

“I’d love to make him mad,” Suh told reporters on Thursday. “My job is to piss him off and have him yelling at his offensive linemen for not blocking me, his coach and everybody on the sideline. That’s my job.”

On a slightly more serious note, Suh explained that the goal is indeed to make Brady uncomfortable.

“Uncomfortable [and] off his spot,” Suh said. “We know he likes to drop back and throw comfortably and have this nice pocket; but my sole job is to disrupt that at all costs. . . .

“I think the last game we played them, we had some good hits on him and understood what they wanted to do. Personally, I can reach back to some times in Detroit where they actually pulled him from a game. [It was] a preseason game, so maybe it wasn’t that important; but it was important for us just to get a gauge to see where we were at. I’ve had some success against him.”

When the teams last played, the Dolphins managed to hit Brady eight times. It was good but not good enough, given the outcome — another New England win.

“I think it was good in the pass rush concept but when we look at the run game, we didn’t do so hot there,” Suh said. “I think they stuck with that and we have to eliminate that. I think when we eliminate both of those pieces and they’re not successful on both sides of the running and pass game, that’s when we’ll find ourselves successful.”

Success has been fleeting for the Dolphins this year, but with playoff hopes dwindling, nothing would set the tone better for 2018 than surprising the Patriots in prime time. To make that happen, it will be critical to make Brady as uncomfortable as possible, forcing him to look more at the rush and less at his receivers.

  1. Dolphins have played them tough more often than not – I’d expect a 3 point game going either way.

    Of course, I thought the same thing in Buffalo.

  2. The Patriots are living rent free in everyone’s heads. This guy has been apart of perennial losing franchises and acts like the Pats are rivals. Get a clue Suh!

  3. You will never be for the Dolphins what Jason Taylor was… Now that was a player who certainly gave Brady nightmares!!!

  4. This league is boring without Peyton Manning.

    I used to look forward to the game as a Pre-Super Bowl game.

    The only game which was supposed to be exciting is the Steelers game.

    This league needs more talent

  5. Brady’s job is to win. If it doesn’t piss you off that you lose to brady all the time (yeah, you won the year Brady got pulled at half time) then that would explain why the Dolphins are playing for a wildcard spot and the Patriots are playing for Rings.

    I love how he draws on a preseason game for success against him. If memory serves me correctly, DET went 4-0 in the preseason that year followed by 0-16 in the regular season.

  7. Good player, steps over line from time to time but he can ruin a game plan. The Pats have to handle him. Tough division road game.

    I’d laugh if Belichick starts Hoyer and beats them

    Pats could rest all the starters. This game doest matter all that much so long as they win at Heinz field

  9. What a genius. If we eliminate the passing game, and the running game, we’ll do fine. Thanks, Coach Lombardi.

  10. Keep it clean and no one has a problem…. problem is you too often take dirty shots. Stay classy SUH

    That is a tough task you’re asking.

  12. I still cannot believe the Dolphins thought it was smart to sink 100 mil into a DT. The guy is great, but he gets double teamed by every opponent, seldom has his name called and rarely makes any impact plays.

    The only positions worth that kind of money are QBs, a shutdown corner and then maybe an edge rusher.

  13. It’s funny how the Pats fans are calling SUH a dirty player after what Gronk did. Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black? Hey, he hasn’t been suspended since 2014, give it up.

    Pathetic. Yeah let’s compare a guy who has been one of if not the dirtiest player in the league for years, to a guy who has never been considered that way ever. 99.9% of Pats fans agree gronks hit was dirty, but I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    You, on the other hand, cant handle the fact that the Patriots live rent free in your head so react like an emotional teenager making ludicrous comparisons. Its what you guys do. In every single thing related to the patriots. For years.

    Give it up? lol great advice for yourself little guy.
