Detroit Lions Ndamukong Suh

Different perspectives on Ndamukong Suh paint vastly different pictures on what kind of a player he is. If you look at the fines and personal fouls he has racked up since entering the NFL, it would be hard not to label him as a dirty player. By those metrics, he almost certainly belongs in the "James Harrison" category. But then if you see the plays he gets penalized on, it's hard to understand why he gets penalized on those calls.

I don't have those answers, and I won't tell you it's going to be next season. Maybe even with our luck, we'll be ready to turn it around the season the NFL gets locked out. But I digress.

Because even though a 2-14 season is a poor season by any standards, the Lions still had an infinity percent increase in winning percentage over last [...] Continue reading → | , ,
