Suh won't 'FBI half-target' Romo's ribs

Before last week's Monday night tilt between the Redskins and Cowboys, DeAngelo Hall caused quite a stir by stating that he would target the broken ribs of quarterback Tony Romo. (Hall missed the mark.)

This week, as my colleague Andy Benoit pointed out yesterday, Romo will be dealing with a substantially better tackler in Lions defensive tackle and general havoc-wrecker Ndamukong Suh. Suh won't put an official target on Romo, but his comments, via Howard Balzer of 101Sports.com, are equally as terrifying.

"There isn't going to be any FBI half-target on him," Suh said. "But I am on his right side, as everybody wants to point out. I am coming at him from that side. If I accidentally hit (the broken rib), so be it. It's not my problem, not my issue to deal with. I just go for the ball because that's the only thing that can hurt you.

"I am 307 pounds. I am pretty sure if I land on you with all my weight, you are going to feel it."

The cool thing about that statement is that Suh managed to a) inform Romo he is coming after him, b) take a potshot at Hall for the weaksauce target he put on Romo's ribs and c) make sure and avoid already putting a fine in the books for the first time he touches Romo.

Make no mistake, though -- Suh wants to be more effective than he was last week.

"I was definitely not disruptive enough," he said per The Detroit News. "I am not satisfied with the way I played. I am going to try and redeem myself and get back on track."

If the Cowboys offensive line behaves like it did on Monday night, Suh's going to be just fine come next week.

But he's being wise with his comments -- alerting the league and the refs to an intent to hurt would be foolish and only add to the "dirty" reputation that Suh's managed to (incorrectly, in my opinion) pick up in his first year and a quarter in the league.

You will probably be after the amazing conditions and a blog page site, men's. I have been previously generally a fabulous book lover on the web-site.

All these reasons inspire the designer Empire Strapless Sweep/Brush Train Chiffon Beach Wedding Dressstore owners to import it from different corners of the world. The fact that these dresses are no more expensive in nature further adds to their growing popularity.

He makes good points. Tackling is his job and thats what he is going to do (Most of the time). He gets called dirty all the time and sometimes it may be deserved but usually he is just playing hard and the end result isnt always pretty. Not a Lions fan but I find myself rooting for them this season for some odd reason.

Suh is just trying to be the best at what he does for what theyre paying him for. He seems like a good person off the field- he just plays with reckless abandon...

Suh is an animal. Tony Romo will get knocked out of this game if he gets to hit him. I think he will get to him because the Cowboys offensive line appears to be below average at this point.  

"I am 307 pounds. I am pretty sure if I land on you with all my weight, you are going to feel it."


Man, this guy is scary. Run away from him Tony. The Dallas line will get flagged multiple times for holding Suh. I bet Kitna is worried too. 


I will take the Lions in this game.    24-13
