Apparently, Ndamukong Suh is tired of “one moment” defining his NFL career. Suh really believes that he’s getting a raw deal by being referred to as one of the league’s worst human beings. While Suh’s complaint sounds good in theory, No. 90 has only himself to blame for his ugly public image and his dirty tactics have been on display for the better part of four years — not just “one moment.”
Whenever Suh’s name is brought up in conversation, most fans immediately turn to the time he stomped on Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith over two years ago. Needless to say, Suh’s notorious step came on Thanksgiving Day, which means more than half of the country was watching the game. Yeah, what a great way to make an impression on the casual NFL fans of the world, right?
Even still, Suh isn’t a criminal of any kind and hasn’t had any major run-ins with the law, so he doesn’t quite deserve the Aaron Hernandez treatment. With that being said, Suh has established himself as a dirty player and that label isn’t washing off anytime soon. The only hope that the Detroit Lions‘ defensive tackle has is this: when Suh retires, narrow-minded football fans will forget all about his on-field nastiness and Suh will be revered for his incredible statsheet and overall dominance of the line of scrimmage.
Until that time, however, Suh is only kidding himself when he talks about repairing his image.
