Through two years of Ndamukong Suh, we have seen nine personal foul penalties, two quarterbacks nearly getting beheaded and the infamous stomp which cost him two games in 2011. But if you ask Suh, which GQ magazine did for their September issue, he isn’t a dirty player. According to him, he isn’t even an “angry player.”

“A dirty player is somebody who ultimately is trying to hurt somebody. There’s a huge difference. There’s no gray in that. Like, you have no conscience, no nothing, no guilt. I don’t have that mean streak in me. I don’t play angry. It’s not anger.”

Nobody knows besides the man himself if he has that mean streak inside of him. We can only go by what we have seen on the field. And from what I have seen on the field, I think Suh is full of mean streak and thus full of hogwash. But there’s more:

“If you slow down and analyze anything, it’s going to look worse in my opinion. It was not intentional. If it was intentional, it could have been a lot worse. If I wanted to go out there to hurt somebody, I could hurt somebody. I don’t want any part of that. … I mean, if I wanted to hurt you, I’d go for your quarterback. Because me stopping your play is going to frustrate you more than me physically hurting you. Because I’m just that much better than you. That’s how I look at it. It’s like killing somebody with kindness.”

I don’t think you have to “slow down and analyze” the tape of Suh violently stomping on the arm of Packers lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith last Thanksgiving to see that it was intentional. If Suh wanted to hurt you, he’d go after your quarterback. Would that be like him wrestling the Bengals’ Andy Dalton down after the play or him decapitating the (then) Browns’ quarterback Jake Delhomme? What about the unnecessary chicken wing to the back of Jay Cutler’s head? I don’t have a problem with a little intimidating behavior, but don’t lie about it. I get that you’re a smart fellow with your engineering degree from Nebraska, but you intelligence and arrogance are two different things.

The evidence is there (below), Ndamukong. Your definition of angry MUST be different than anything I’ve ever heard. This isn’t you playing Mr. Potato Head here. This is you trying to inflict pain on opponents by taking off their body parts. Mr. Potato Head, huh? I think I may have found you a decent Christmas gift.
