Ndamukong Suh sees himself winning multiple Super Bowls with the Lions

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.

Matt Schaub rips Ndamukong Suh, says he is not Houston Texan-worthy

Matt Schaub offered “no comment” on Thursday when asked about Ndamukong Suh kicking him in the groin during the Houston Texans’ win over the Detroit Lions. During an interview with “In the Loop with Nick Wright and John Lopez” on SportsRadio 610 in Houston on Monday, he was not quite as tight-lipped.

Suh came up in conversation and one of the hosts asked Schaub if he would ever want him as a teammate.

“No,” the Texans quarterback replied according to ESPN.com. “You don’t want a player like that. The stuff that he stands for and the type of player he is, that’s not Houston Texan-worthy. That’s not what we’re about as a football team, as individuals, collectively as a group, we’re not that type of person.”

If you were wondering if Schaub thought the kick was intentional, you now have your answer. On Sunday, an NFL official reportedly told ESPN that Suh will “not be getting the benefit of the doubt” when representatives from the league get together for their weekly meeting on Monday. NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson also said that no form of discipline can be ruled out when dealing with a player who has Suh’s history.

What history? Last Thanksgiving, Suh blatantly stomped on a Packers player and was given a two-game suspension because of it. Suh was recently voted the least-liked player in the NFL for a reason, and his cheap shots on Thanksgiving in back-to-back years remind us why. I highly doubt Schaub is the only player in the league who would not want the big defensive lineman as a teammate.

Ndamukong Suh kicked Matt Schaub in the groin, but no, he’s not dirty

Ndamukong Suh has wasted a lot of breath defending himself against assertions that he’s a dirty player, but after his actions on Thanksgiving for the second straight year, he is out of excuses.

The Detroit Lions defensive lineman had fallen over on a first-quarter pass from Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub when his foot made contact with Schaub’s manly region. Knowing that Schaub was next to him, Suh extended his leg and kicked the quarterback in the groin.

In an effort to remain fair, many people have said they are not sure if the kick was intentional, but there’s no doubt in my mind he did it intentionally. He knew exactly where Schaub was and made a kicking motion with his foot on purpose.

Schaub was ticked about the play after the game, according to Houston Chronicle reporter Tania Ganguli.

“I have no comment about that play or that player,” Schaub said.

He might not have a comment, but we do. It was a dirty play from a notoriously dirty player. And the interesting part is that Suh is making it a Thanksgiving tradition to stomp — or kick — his opponent. See Suh? This is exactly why you rank as the least-liked played in the NFL.

Ndamukong Suh and Jay Cutler are survey’s least liked players in the NFL

Outside the cities of Chicago and Detroit and their surrounding areas, it’s probably safe to say Jay Cutler and Ndamukong Suh do not have a ton of fans. A recent survey conducted by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research turned that assumption into more of a reality.

According to Forbes, the survey asked fans to rate a number of players based on likability and it revealed that Suh and Cutler are the two least popular players in the NFL with only 19% and 21% appeal, respectively. The two most popular players in the league were Troy Polamalu (63% appeal) and Drew Brees (62% appeal).

Not exactly shocking, to say the least. Cheap shots like this one have resulted in Suh being called one of the dirtiest players in the league. Cutler has always been known as a crybaby, and it likely didn’t help this year when he shoved one of his teammates and stormed away from his offensive coordinator. Michael Vick also made the least-liked list, and we don’t need to get into the history there.

As for the players who are the most popular, you have to wonder how much of a role advertising plays. Polamalu, Brees, Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers all made the top five on the most-liked list. What do they all have in common? Funny commercials. Whether it be Head & Shoulders or the discount double-check, those are faces were are exposed to all the time on TV. That almost certainly plays a role in the rankings.

Brandon Marshall upset with Ndamukong Suh for hit on Jay Cutler

Brandon Marshall is extremely close with Jay Cutler, so it’s no surprise he was upset with Ndamukong Suh for laying a monster hit on the quarterback during “Monday Night Football.”

The Bears wide receiver sent a few tweets after his team won 13-7 to complain about Suh’s sack:

Jay Cutler has ‘bruised ribs’ after being slammed by Ndamukong Suh

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler reportedly only suffered “bruised ribs” on a punishing hit from Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh during “Monday Night Football.”

Cutler took the snap from under center on a first-and-10 play in the second quarter with the Bears leading 10-0. He faked a handoff on a play action, then began rolling to his right after Suh penetrated up the middle. Suh grabbed Cutler’s left arm and corralled him, then slammed him to the turf in a questionable method; He yanked Cutler down from the shoulder, and seemed to use his right leg to sweep Cutler and take out his legs.

Cutler laid on the ground in obvious pain and was treated by the Chicago trainers. He eventually ran off the field on his own, receiving handshakes from a few Lions players and loud cheers from the home fans at Soldier Field.

Cutler amazingly only missed one play on that drive, then came back in and threw an incompletion on third down. Backup quarterback Jason Campbell led the Bears’ final drive before halftime. Cutler somehow came back out for the start of the third quarter.

ESPN’s Lisa Salters reported that Cutler only had “bruised ribs” despite missing action after the hard hit. It’s hard to imagine that was the extent of the injury after such a jarring hit, but that’s the information the Bears allowed at the time.

Cutler went 1/5 on his first drive of the second half.

Ndamukong Suh accused of sideswiping car, berating driver, fleeing scene

Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh is in the middle of another controversy regarding his driving conduct.

A Michigan man is accusing Suh of sideswiping his car early Thursday morning, berating him, and then fleeing the scene.

Steve Vines told FOX 2 in Detroit that he was on his way to work early Thursday morning when Suh tangled with him merging onto a ramp.

“All three of us got over. He rode up on my butt,” Vines told My Fox Detroit. “As we’re going up the ramp, he just punched it, went right around me…. He just sideswiped me.”

Vines says he tried speaking to the other driver — who was in a black Range Rover — when they were stopped at a light.
