Ndamukong Suh struck again today with another incredibly dirty and obvious play. Suh got tangled and went to the ground with Packers lineman, Evan Dietrich-Smith. Suh was on top of Dietrich-Smith and clearly shoved his helmet to the turf three times before getting up. When he got up, a Green Bay player shoved Suh because he had been ramming his teammate’s head into the carpet. Suh took this opportunity to stomp Dietrich-Smith’s arm.
After the game, Suh said that he – along with “the man upstairs” – knows what he did today, claiming that he had only put his foot down to try and regain his balance. If you assume that Suh is referring to Roger Goodell, then yes, he does know what Suh did because it’s on tape. Via ESPN:
“What I did was remove myself from the situation the best way I felt, with me being held down.”
“My intention was not to kick anybody, as I did not, removing myself,” he said. “I was on top of a guy, being pulled down, and trying to get up off the ground — and why you see me pushing his helmet down, because I’m trying to remove myself from the situation, and as I’m getting up, I’m getting pushed, so I’m getting myself on balance.”
Suh should be have a little less money to spend at Black Friday sales tonight. Hopefully, he also sits a game or two because, wow, what a dick.
