Rodgers calls Suh the NFL’s most terrifying defensive player

AP

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is glad to see Ndamukong Suh out of the NFC North and in Miami.

Rodgers was asked by Bill Simmons to name the NFL’s most terrifying defensive player, and he didn’t hesitate before answering that it’s Suh, whom Rodgers saw twice a year when Suh was playing for the Lions.

“One of the most dominant players, still,” Rodgers said.

Rodgers then referenced the 2014 incident in which Suh stepped on Rodgers’ leg. Suh claimed afterward that it was so cold at Lambeau Field that he couldn’t feel his feet and didn’t realize he was stepping on Rodgers, a claim the NFL’s appeals officer said he didn’t believe.

“You’ve got to worry about him stepping on your calf. His feet were a little cold, though, so I can’t hold that against him. He couldn’t feel his feet,” Rodgers said sarcastically.

The Dolphins and Packers don’t meet again until 2018, so Rodgers doesn’t have to fear Suh stepping on him any time soon.

  1. Interesting he would kiss up like that after such a poor season by Suh. He was invisible at times.

    Does Rogers maybe not keep up with the AFC so much?

  2. Really Aaron? Those two teammates on all that HGH would scare the crap out of me. One has a neck the width of a pillow and the other who was washed up old and slow in Chicago can all of a sudden run like a deer. Look on your team man and …..run,run, run the druggies are coming!!!!

    The Dolphins had a poor year but Suh had a fine year.

  4. We miss him in Detroit. You can tel other teams fear him getting his hands on your quarterback, he may have only had a few sacks. But all those hits he puts in when the balls been gone for .2 seconds add up.

  5. then along came an boy named Suh and the entire NFL quivered.

    Dudes big mean strong and dirty.
    1 thing keeping him from being the outright best DT is his attitude and motor.
    He gets upset and it affects him

  6. Sure hope he starts to become an impact on the defensive side of the ball finally!!! It would be great to become a feared defense, but 1 step at a time!!! GO FINS!!!

  7. That interview was pretty good — it’s also not hard at all to respect Rodgers’ intelligence and ability; however, it is hard to accept that my team is going to have to face the guy two times a year for the next six years or so.

  8. Suh had one of his best seasons statistically last season with Miami so let’s get that straight. Miami will be in a wide 9 Defense this year under Vance Joseph a no–nonsense attacking Defensive coach and picking up Defensive line coach Jim Washburn was huge !!! Wake Suh and Super Mario in a wide 9 is going to be sick good luck stopping it.

  9. Suh is dominant and has been. Last year was a little off but for those of you that truly know football also know he is a dominant DT and other players also know that. He was in a flawed system and this season will be much different. People hate on him because of his salary and his history but every team in the league would love to have him starting on their DL.

    Sounds like rodgers is a little sensitive about the indecent.

    Hey Mack, try laying down in your yard and have a 320 pound man stand on your leg with all his weight,
    Then think about the cleats Suh is wearing.
    Now tell me that wouldn’t feel a little uncomfortable ??????
    The NFL fined Suh for the incident but kept it quiet. It didn’t deserve a suspension but it was a dirty play and intentional.

    Poor season? You’re either trolling, don’t watch a lot of football or aren’t sure what you’re seeing on the screen.

  12. He might be the most terrifying guy in the league but I would argue Aaron Donald is not far behind.

  13. It will change soon for Mr Munn to Linval Joseph and Anthony Barr. Except they don’t have to cheat to get to any QB.

  14. NFL propaganda machine is starting its latest project…turn Suh’s image from dirty to dominant. I guess they’re prepping for a Miami playoff run.

    ================================

    Suh should have received a suspension for the dirty play, lying, and showing no remorse.

  16. Suh’s step on Rodgers was not intentional. It occurred because Rodgers’ teammate Lang had a grip on Suh’s jersey at the neck. When Lang let go is when Suh went backwards and stepped back to keep his balance.

  17. Suh disappears in a lot of games and its very easy to get his goat and once he gets angry he has little self control and commits a lot of penalties.

    What’s “terrifying” about him is that he repeatedly has intentionally tried to injure other players by stomping on them with his cleats. Its that extremely dirty play of his that his opponents need to be afraid of.

    Thank you! You can tell who is the true football fan by statements like this. True watching TV in which the ball is always followed makes it sometimes difficult to watch linemen play but if one were to watch all 16 Dolphins games and watch their line there’s no way you walk away saying Suh had a poor season. Unless the only metric a person uses to measure defensive linemen is the number of sacks.

  19. The Suh steps were unintentional.

    Try for yourself to step on something the shape of a leg when you are walking backwards without looking. If you step just a little bit wrong, you are down on the ground. Perhaps injured. Suh is a special athlete, but he doesn’t have eyes in the back of his neck.

    Its ridiculous that Fox managed to spin it, and the NFL thought it was worthy of a suspension. The dude handling discipline in the NFL must be a total idiot, letting himself be used by the media like that.

  20. The Suh bashers are either jealous or they really think Olivier Vernon is a top 5 pass rusher. OV will be very average in NYG because Suh isn’t there absorbing double teams. LOL

  21. He is a terrific player but what makes him the most dangerous is that he doesn’t play by the rules and his character questionable.

  22. Stepping on Rodgers’ leg may or may not have been intentional, but once Suh realized that he was on it, he intentionally stayed there longer than necessary. And there’s no way he didn’t know it immediately. It doesn’t matter how “numb” his feet were at the time. Suh’s played football far too long and relied on his feet, balance, etc. enough that he knew exactly what was going on.

  23. Terrifying is an appropriate term for a person who takes cheap shots.

    It’s rough to take the normal tough hits… it has to be unnerving to wonder if youre going to get kicked stepped on or an elbow dropped on you after the whistle.

  24. Rodgers comments on Suh make perfect sense if you think about it. It would have to be someone like Suh, who plays dirty that would terrify Rodgers. The officials protect Rodgers from all of the rule abiding players.

  25. “OV will be very average in NYG because Suh isn’t there absorbing double teams.”

    JPP will be absorbing double teams on the other side as he beats up on opposing Right Tackles.

  26. N. Suh will be overpaid some games he disappears, but other games he occupies two offenders.

    the most overpaid dude in the nfl vontez burfict. whatever he makes it is too much for a player that actively to loses games for his team, and angers the roger.

    Roggy doesn’t like his superstars injured, but doing it purposefully is intolerable. And i think it is reflected in Cincy not catching nor being deserving of any breaks whatsoever.

  27. Imagine how much Suh would get picked on if he was a small dude. He’s got a small personality.

  28. So folks can watch a guy intentionally step on a guys leg, and we’ve seen him stomp other players before in 2011 so don’t act like it’s new territory, and call it an accident. Naahh, no homerism in MIA now is there.

    Good thing he didn’t stomp on a cell phone,

    off with his head! says the Red Queen Goodell.

  29. Aaron, if you’re going to talk to this Simmons idiot, you should at least call your brother as well.

    Suh is the kind of guy you dislike unless he’s on your team.
    ————————
    I’d dislike having to defend my team’s rep after a game where he cheap shots an opponent.

    Just like when Clay hit Kaepernick out of bounds…
    On top of that, when someone on your team starts head hunting – the other team will start taking pot shots at your offensive players… just like the Steeler/Bengal game.

    I’d rather keep my guys healthy than lose ’em all in a cheapshot fiesta.

  31. i heard Suh doesn’t flush the toilet in the Dolphins locker room, leaving some massive brown bricks in the john, they’ve gone thru 25 plungers since he signed there
