Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukung Suh has tried to make a case all season that he’s not a dirty player, but Thursday’s game against the Green Bay Packers is the perfect example as to why last year’s Defensive Rookie of the Year has a negative image in the NFL.
Suh was ejected from the game after he was hit for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the third quarter while battling against Evan Dietrich-Smith. Not only did Suh slam Dietrich-Smith’s head into the ground when the play was dead, but Suh topped the play off by kicking Dietrich-Smith when he was still on the ground–which was the main reason why he was ejected.
Obviously, Suh will most likely face another fine from the league considering how many incidents he’s already been involved with this season, but the real question is whether or not he’ll face a suspension from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Both Troy Aikman and Joe Buck seemed to believe Suh could face a multiple-game suspension for the incident considering this isn’t his first offense–which would be a huge disappointment for the Lions as they need all of the help they can get for the playoffs.
Way to go Suh. Not only should you be labeled as a dirty player, but a selfish player as well considering the type of impact this ridiculous incident could have on the outcome of Detroit’s season.
