Suh, Goodell make up during meeting

SuhPosted by Josh Katzowitz

Ndamukong Suh had his meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday, and he’s taken to his Facebook page to tell you all about it.

It seems to have gone very well indeed.

"I am very appreciative of the opportunity to sit and speak with the Commissioner and his staff to clarify a few questions about my play, and the game in general,” Suh wrote. “I have gained a better understanding how I need to play the game to help my team win.

“I look forward to the rest of the season and the doing everything we can to bring the Lombardi Trophy to Detroit."

Suh has been characterized as a dirty player (probably because he’s seemingly always trying to rip off the other quarterback’s face), and he’s been hit hard by fines -- which is why he asked to meet with Roger Goodell. He wanted to get clarification on why his style of play has led to so many personal fouls and fines. Now, apparently he’s got it.

“We appreciate that Ndamukong Suh, Coach (Jim) Schwartz, and team president Tom Lewand took the time to meet with us today,” Goodell said in a statement. “Ndamukong plays the game with great skill and passion and is a major reason for the Lions’ success this year. We reviewed video showing that he has clearly made the adjustments to play consistently within the rules so that he can continue to help the team. We commend Ndamukong’s leadership in taking the initiative to schedule today’s meeting.”

Glad to see Suh and the NFL are, once again, BFFs. Opposing quarterbacks can only hope those good feelings last.

Suh, Goodell make up during meeting

Charles Woodson threw a punch this year! By no means is he a dirty player. Stuff happens, tempers flare. Vikings Robison kicked Pack OL in groin where is his "Dirty Player" thread?

Lions used to roll over, now they play harder and have chance to actually win a few games. Getting your hand caught in Matt Ryan's facemask while trying for a sack is a 15yd penalty, not assault.

ESPN was hyping Detroit for the Bears Monday night game, people got sick of it and now there is a little backlash.

So like I said I am thru,I look at the tapes and I see what he does,and you look at the same tapes and see something
different,I think they should let them play this is FOOTBALL,a guy like Suh would have not LASTED 10 mins if he would
have done to STABLER,BRADSHAW or Unitas what he did to ANDY DALTON.
He would have been fine playing back then.  I've seen Staubach picked up, carried and dumped by Steelers and I've seen Bradshaw get tattooed a few times also.  He would have adjusted to the play in those days.

Brian,
I hear what you are saying but football is a voilent sport...I myself like many others played 4 years of high school ball and believe me we were taught to inflict pain...not only directly but mentally...what Suh does is strike fear in OL which in turn strikes fear in QB's.  Listen I get that guys like Ben and Cam are big enough to take it...and there will be offensive lineman that can handle Suh as well...but he is what the NFL has been looking for and has needed since Lawrence Taylor and Reggie White.

What the Atlanta players claimed is a lie...there is no proof...in fact the NFL field is so mic'ed up that if it happened we would of heard it either on E S P N or youtube or something at this point.  They(as in opposing players) are adding to Suh's rep...all the while making him more and more of a future legend and NFL great.  He will have the feel of past NFL greats like Butkus, Long, Taylor and White to name a few.

Puss league or not Brian he is what you and everyone else wishes was on there DL.  He is the one of the main reasons the Detroit Lions are turning the page on the Matt Millen era and finally bringing respect to the Detroit Lions...will they make the playoffs...I think so, but I doubt they will matter this year...but just like your Jets Brian my Lions are coming back around and other teams are giving them some respect. 

FYI my AFC team is the J E T S JETS JETS JETS would love to see that SUPERBOWL.
