WHILE DT Ndamukong Suh is no longer the player he was in Detroit, he’s by no means used up. He still has the ability to beat blockers one-on-one. He still has the ability to collapse a pocket with solid technique and brute strength. He can hold the point of attack vs the run, and make tackles on grown men with one arm.
You don’t hear him talked about like he used to be, but the guy can still play this game at a higher level than most DT’s. For that reason, among my nightly prayers, is the phrase “Please don’t let Suh become a Cowboy. Or a giant. Or a Redskin.”
I don’t want him paired as a “war daddy “with DE Demarcus Lawrence in Dallas. I don’t want him snacking with DT Damon Harrison in New York. I don’t want him in the same half-empty stadium as DE Johnathan Allen and OLB Ryan Kerrigan in Washington.
Where I would like to see him, is right between DT Fletcher Cox and DE Derek Barnett. Or behind DT Timmy Jernigan, in a rotation. (Imagine that second line: DE Chris Long, DT Suh, DT Destiny Vaeao, DE Michael Bennett.) YIKES! Many starting defensive lines don’t look that good!
It’s unlikely that Suh will be an Eagle. However, what I can hope for, is that we don’t have to see him twice a year.
