Anyone know of a video of this? I sure would like to see it. It would be even better if he was Mic'd Up for that game, maybe then the league can suspend him for a few more games.
Even though I'd like to get more distance from the Colts, this makes me even more glad to watch Andrew Luck running past the pursuing Suh for a long gain on the game-winning drive that led to Suh's Lions choking yet again. And Suh's lack of containment on Luck played a big role in it. Love that part!
Is Suh even a good player anymore?? His first year with 10 sacks was good for a rookie but his last 2 season he hasn't even been top 50 at his position. His job is to get pressure on the qb and stop the run.
Last year he tallied 4 sacks and 26 tackles in 14 games. no ff or int.
This year 5.5 sacks and 21 tackles. no ff or int.
He has been pretty bad for 2 seasons. I guess that's why he tries to take out other players because he can't get the job done.
I personally feel he should switch to nose guard. He's strong enough to blow up the center every play.
5.5 sacks isn't bad for a DT. Suh is good, but he's the dirtiest player in the league. I hated to see the Colts beat the Lions on the last play, but after reading about this I'm not too upset about it. Suh is a POS.
Whats sickening to me is that corporate sponsors still have the jackasses name tied to their products ....
Ya it's not that bad but theres plenty of guys putting up better numbers without all dirty stuff on the side. People always put him in their top 5 dts but I don't even consider him the best of that draft. Check out Geno Atkins in Cinci who was picked 210th that draft.
He may be distracted with all the dirty player talk. Instead of just playing his game, he's thinking about stupid crap.
He's certainly building himself a nice, fat bank account of karma....that's for sure.
I can't wait until he makes a withdrawal on that account.
He needs to be humbled in a big, big way.
Wonder if the league will take any action on this...?
Probably not since there's no rule against laughing.
...then again, maybe they'll consider this under the no taunting rule
Maybe the Iron Sheik can humble him. Old Country Way.
But is there a mechanism for fining someone for taunting? I thought the sole remedy for that is an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, IF the official sees it and decides to throw the flag.
I'm not sure there's an offense to fine here. But it solidifies his reputation as a punk.
THIS. Atkins is a monster, and never does any of this crap. He is a football player, plain and simple. You can be tough without chicken **** dirty play.
I think the league has broad latitude to define a player's actions as detrimental to the league, and can fine him under that premise if they want to.
Conduct detrimental to the league is a vaguely defined term, IIRC, giving the league a lot of wiggle room to drop the hammer if they see fit.
Hell, Geno Atkins is on the "if the MVP were given to people other than QBs, he'd be a candidate to win it" list.
Yep. SO many good defensive players in the league now. It gets lost in the offense first NFl, but there is a lot of talent on that side of the ball.
(In my best Dos Equis commercial voice)"I don't always wish injuries on sports players, but when I do, its on guys like Suh"
Am I a bad person for looking forward to the day when Suh either goes off the deep end or gets a serious injury?
Nah, you're good.
No you're not bad.
I was smiling from ear to ear when the Titans' Dave Stewart got carted off the field.
For dirty players, I cheer injuries that happen to them. They're subhuman people. They've earned it.
