Ndamukong Suh made a crack at the Packers while presumably sitting on his couch or in a bar Saturday night. On a 4th-and-1 late in the NFC Divisional Playoff game between the Packers and 49ers, the 49ers lined up to go for it. They were already winning 45-31 and a field goal would have sealed it. But Colin Kaepernick’s hard count sealed the win as he got the Packers whole defensive line to jump offside.
Naturally, football fans everywhere ripped Suh for getting on a team who (a) made the playoffs and (b) has beaten the Lions in five of the six matchups since Suh entered the league in 2010 and 14 of the last 15 games. As if a member of the Lions’ defense has room to talk – their group gave up 27.3 points per game in the regular season, good for fifth-worth in the NFL.
Instead of getting a phone call from commissioner Roger Goodell for this misstep, Suh just heard it from fellow tweeters…deservedly so.
