Ndamukong Suh’s problem can be solved

The Detroit Lions' Ndamukong Suh is one of the best defensive players in the NFL today. He is also said to be one of the dirtiest players in the game. After witnessing his actions in the nationally televised Thanksgiving Day game against the Green Bay Packers, someone needs to really sit this young man down and talk to him. Without agression as a part of your game in the NFL, a player will not last five minutes. If Mr. Suh needs an example of how to be an intimidating force without being fined and ejected, is one person that can be presented to him - Mean Joe Greene.


Does anyone out there remember Mean Joe? A first round draft choice of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1969 out of  North Texas State, Mean Joe played 13 seasons for the Steelers. At 6-4 and 275 pounds, Greene was a combination of size, speed, quickness, strength and intimidation. He was able to have a Hall of Fame career and win four Super Bowls. All without stomping on any of his opponents on national television. Greene faced multiple blockers, just as Suh does. The most striking difference between the two, other than the era that Mean Joe played in (late 60's - early 80's) is that Greene channeled his frustrations into sack and tackle totals. Suh is going to lead the league in fines and suspensions, if he's not careful.


Just a suggestion. Ndamukong, stop making excuses. Stop saying that the man upstairs or your mom will judge if you are a dirty player. Take responsibility for your actions, man up, admit you have made some mistakes, and talk to someone. Someone who has experience in the NFL. A man who can talk about the nuances of playing on an NFL defensive line. That man is Mean Joe Greene. Do it. Quickly.


Forget your reputation, that's already in the tank. I'm saying you should save your career. Now.


Questions:


Is it me, or should Rex Ryan have been fined $75,000  for cursing out the Jets defense instead of fans?   
   


Where would the Dallas Cowboys be without playing in a weak NFC East? 



Did someone say that Mark Sanchez was an elite quarterback? Where are you now? 



After playing with a broken thumb, will anyone in Chicago question Jay Cutler's guts again?

Cowboys, Romo Come Back For OT Win In SF

At the conclusion of the Dallas Cowboys' first game of the 2011 season, a loss to the New York Jets, Cowboy fans in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex were screaming for the head of Tony Romo. After his performance in Dallas' come from behind 27-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, Romo will be elevated to sainthood for the rest of the week. Romo suffered two broken ribs during the game, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Despite the injury, Romo finished 20 - 33 for 345 yards and 2 TD's against the Niners.The win may have come at an additional cost. RB Felix Jones is said to have suffered a separated shoulder, while WR Miles Austin is hampered by a hamstring injury which orginally occured in the preseason. The Cowboys should hope that their guys are fast healers, because their bitter rivals, the apparently rejuvenated Washington Redskins, are bringing their 2-0 record to Cowboys Stadium next Sunday.


Cowboy fans should realize one thing by now. Tony Romo has been in the NFL for 6 seasons. With all of his ups and downs, Romo does not remind anyone of Roger Staubach or Troy Aikman. It's time to make peace with the fact that Romo will win some big games, and make you crazy with the manner in which the Cowboys will lose some games (see loss to the Seahawks in the playoffs). Dallas has to hope that they can fire on all cylinders and make a run to the playoffs and beyond. If not, blood pressure medication sales will rise in Dallas during the remainder of the 2011 season.


Questions:


Who out there believes the 2-0 Detroit Lions are for real? Will they whip the Packers the way they beat down the Kansas City Chiefs?   


Is it me, or do the Indianapolis Colts look like they are heading for a free fall to the bottom of the AFC South standings?


When will wide receivers who have accomplished nothing (Jason Hill, Jacksonville WR, 55 catches in 5 years) in the NFL stop running their mouths? Is Darrelle Revis and the New York Jets defense really overrated, or was the Jacksonville Jaguars offense just horrible in the Jets 32-3 win? (By the way, Hill did not play in the game)
