Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley recently boasted that he and teammate Ndamukong Suh have the best DT combo in the league.
Suh knows talk is cheap and that you have to go out and prove it every game, but at the same time, he doesn't see a problem with Nick's assessment. He agrees that he and Fairley “have the potential and the opportunity to be great."
“I think it’s fun and it’s something good,” Suh said, via Andrew Siciliano of the NFL Network.
“You’re doing something positive if you’re having a target on your back and you’re a main focus of offensive coaches and their staff. And they really have to focus on you guys and take the pressure off the rest of your teammates, allow them to make plays. If me and Nick can do that, that will be a great thing and something that I welcome and I know Nick welcomes. Let’s just make the most of it and instead of talking about it, let’s just be about it.”
