via”s NFL Nation conducted an anonymous survey of more than 320 players.  One question was: “Who is the most feared player in the NFL?”  Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh brought home the title, receiving 19% of the vote.  Surprise, surprise. Often labeled the league’s “dirtiest player”, it should really be surprised that guys don’t want to play against Suh.  He’s destroyed quarterbacks,  running backs and offensive linemen’s arms.  The guy has even had a song written about running away from him. Suh took the achievement in stride, speaking with  ”If it’s feared from the context of they don’t want to play against me and they are worried about how I may affect the game and affect the offense, it’s definitely appreciated.” I’ve never believed an athlete should “fear” an opponent.  My answer would have been nobody.  But for the sake of the poll, Suh is the logical fit. Whether you’re an opponent, a Comcast cable employee, a golf club or Ndamukong Suh himself, you stay clear of Ndamukong Suh.
