With his kick to Matt Schaub's groin (the Texans quarterback was NOT thankful for that kick on Turkey Day), the reputation for Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has only gotten dirtier with Schaub ripping him in the aftermath.
"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," Schaub said. "That's not what we're about as a football team, as individuals, collectively as a group, we're not that type of person."
Not everybody has the same opinion of Suh. When asked about Suh, Colts coach Bruce Arians praised him and intimated he is, in fact, Colts-worthy.
"I don't think he's a dirty player," Arians said Wednesday, via the Indianapolis Star. "I'd love to have him on my team. I like the way he plays. He plays aggressive, hard, fast and physical.
"That's kind of why they call it football."
Apparently, the NFL didn't love the way he handled the kick to Schaub's private area, fining Suh $30,000 but also failing to suspend him.
"It's a crazy play," Suh said earlier this week. "It's one that unfortunately happened. I didn't even realize until the end of the game and I see my Twitter feed, I have my friends tell me about it. Other than that, I can't do much more about it. I was being dragged to the ground and my foot inadvertently hit the man. It's over with. I'm moving forward, getting ready to play the Colts. ...
"I think I'm always going to be punished in some form or fashion for last Thanksgiving [when he stomped on Green Bay's Evan Dietrich-Smith]," he continued. "I apologize for it, and I'm going to continue to apologize for it. It's something that happened, a mistake that I've made. I'm living up to it and continuing to move past it."
And hey, if things don't work out in Detroit, Suh can take solace in having Arians as a friend.
