NFL Needs to Send Message With Hefty Fine or Suspension for Ndamukong Suh
Detroit Lions‘ fans were hoping this was the year that Ndamukong Suh was finally going to grow up. But just one game into the 2013 season, it appears that’s not going to be the case. Suh is in the headlines for all the wrong reasons, again. This time, it’s for a cheap low block on Minnesota Vikings‘ center John Sullivan following an interception by the Lions.
As always, Suh claims he wasn’t trying to impose any harm:
“I wasn’t by any means going for his knees. He knows that. We had a great conversation running out at halftime, and he understood. My aim was his waist to cut him off.”
Whatever you need to tell yourself, bud…
Regardless of what his intent was, the end result was a block that could have ended Sullivan’s season. The type of block he performed is exactly what the NFL is trying to stop and as a result, the league needs to send a loud and clear message to the defensive tackle. I doubt they’ll suspend him, even though that would send the loudest message, but they should at least fine the crap out of him.
This is the third time (at least) in Suh’s young career that he’s been involved in extreme Busch League activity. Enough is enough. The league cannot let him continue to play this way.
