The Detroit Lions may have taken a step back this season when many expected them to move forward, but Ndamukong Suh remains confident in the team’s future outlook. During a recent interview with ESPN The Magazine, Suh was asked about his relationship with Lolo Jones and the joke she made a few months back about him proposing with a Super Bowl ring. Suh said he and Jones are just friends, but that the Super Bowl rings are coming. Yes, rings.
“We will not be getting engaged, because I won’t be giving that Super Bowl ring up,” he said. “Maybe I’ll use the second one I get for that. I do see multiple Super Bowl rings in my future, especially with the team we have now. We’re a team where if we don’t make mistakes, we are insanely dangerous.”
You have to get one before you can win multiple, and I’m not so sure the Lions are all that close to getting their first. Coming off a season in which they made the playoffs for the first time in over 10 years, the Lions are currently 4-7 and have lost three straight. With games remaining against the Packers, Falcons and Bears, it appears the playoffs are not in Detroit’s future this season.
Suh also talked about learning from his mistakes and said he has grown as a person and a player since stomping on a Packers player last Thanksgiving.
“I definitely understand how to channel my aggression in a productive way,” he explained. “There are many reasons. One is I went through that situation last Thanksgiving. But also, any man, any child grows up. You learn from your mistakes or you go backward. I’m the kind of person who wants to move forward.”
Had he not kicked Matt Schaub in the groin this Thanksgiving, we might have had an easier time believing that. Chances are Suh is always going to be a dirty player. As for winning multiple Super Bowls, he and his teammates should probably focus on winning a single playoff game first.
H/T Game On!
