Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has long lived with a reputation as a, well, let’s call it an ‘intense’ player. While playing for the Detroit Lions from 2010 through 2014, Suh was ejected from a game in 2011 against the Green Bay Packers for stomping on offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith’s arm. And then there was the infamous Aaron Rodgers arm-stepping during a game in 2014 that cost Suh a one game suspension.
Much has been said and much has been written about Suh’s reputation, but since joining the Dolphins, he’s mostly settled in as a quiet, yet intense leader of the defensive interior line.
Until this week, that is.
Offensive lineman T.J. Lang of the Detriot Lions appeared on Pardon My Take (via the Detroit News' Justin Rogers) this week, and didn’t mince words when asked about his opinion of Suh, and what it was like to line up opposite of the three-time All Pro.
"I never played against a more literal psychopath in my life," said Lang. "He was a nut job."
The two played each other eight times during Suh’s five years in Detroit, facing off on nearly every play in their games. Depending on how the comments are interpreted, they could either be viewed as an insult or a compliment.
The comments would seem to stir the fire for both players and fans should Lang and Suh face each other again, but unfortunately, the Dolphins won’t face the Lions until sometime in the 2018 season. But you can bet someone will remind Suh of Lang’s comments if and when that meeting happens.
