Another week and another controversy over Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. The Colts and Andrew Luck defeated the Lions and Suh in an epic comeback. It was another action from Suh that will get most of the discussion for the game.
On a Don Carey interception with 6:40 to play, Ndamukong Suh laid out Colts right tackle Winston Justice, who left the game with a concussion. Worse, Suh and his teammates stood over Justice and laughed and danced.
After the game, the Colts tough-minded right guard, Mike McGlynn, was still spitting mad. In fact, he didn’t run into the end zone to celebrate. He was too busy jawing with Suh and some other Lions.
“Totally ignorant on their part,” McGlynn said. “Just childish stuff. We’re all battling out there; I don’t know if the hit was legal or not, but clearly he was hurt, and they’re out there dancing and pointing at him and laughing. Just blatant disrespect. They’re good players but there’s no room for that. It’s disgusting, really.
The incident itself was not shown during the broadcast, which is below.
It’s hard to know whether McGlynn is misinterpreting or exaggerating Suh’s action. McGlynn also added, “If that had happened to one of their players, we’d never do something like that. But that’s what makes this even sweeter. That’s why they lose. I hope they never win another game.”
It’s nothing new for Ndamukong Suh to be in the limelight for his play. Last week he may or may not have intentionally kicked Matt Schaub in the groin. It’s no wonder he was voted the dirtiest player in the league.
