Packers guard T.J. Lang spoke for the rest of America when he responded to Ndamukong Suh’s weak postgame explanation of his antics on Thursday.
“That’s [expletive],” Lang said via Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “He clearly had Evan [Dietrich-Smith] by the face mask pinned to the ground. His explanation is crap. There’s no room for that. It’s a dumb penalty. He hurt his own team today.”
Dietrich-Smith took the high road after the game:
“Sometimes things happen. I don’t know what drove him to do what he did. I can’t say much else.”
Packers tight end Andrew Quarless was more fired up.
“He was lucky I wasn’t on the field,” Quarless told Dunne. “Lucky. I’m a New York guy. I don’t go for that stuff. It was very unnecessary. I can understand you might get in a scuffle, but you never stomp on a guy. That’s like hitting a guy when he’s down. You don’t do things like that. I was this close to running on the field.”
“Heard from some people at Nebraska that Suh was just as dirty in practice vs his own teammates. Angry dude,” Houston radio host Lance Zierlein wrote last night.
Suh has been acting this way for a long time, which is one reason why the NFL is likely to come down hard on him.
