Detroit Lions Ndamukong Suh is struggling this year and one NFL GM anonymously pointed that out. Suh didn’t take too kindly to the criticism and responded to the G.M. (Credit: AP Photo)As opposed to last year, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is currently not dominant. After one NFL general manager spoke out anonymously on the subject, Suh responded.“True men [go on the record],” Suh said, via Anwar Richardson of MLive.com. “I don’t know who he is. I couldn’t tell you if he’s one.”But then Suh sort of agreed with the criticism.“Personally, I believe I had an average quarter,” Suh said. “I had some good things. Some not okay things, but it’s a work in progress. It’s early in the year. Still have a lot of time to play at a high level and stay consistent. That’s the biggest thing I want to focus on every week.”“I have listened to the media hype about Suh since he got in the league — what has he done?” an unnamed G.M. told Pro Football Weekly. “Even the year he had all those garbage sacks, the guy took a million plays off and got pushed around in the run game. I have never thought he was a very good pro player. I liked him coming out and thought he had a chance. But I also never thought he was going to be the second coming that he was labeled. I am not sure who bestowed that on him, but it is kind of a joke.”“People have their opinions,” Suh said. “That’s basically what it is to me. I don’t really pay attention to it. He’s a G.M. He’s supposed to be knowing what he’s talking about. That’s on to you guys’ discretion whether he’s right or not.”Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Executive Editor - Brett Krummenacker @BKrumm_SKThe post Suh responds to anonymous G.M. criticism: “True men go on record” appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
