Ndamukong Suh Tells Teammates Only A “Handful” Are Good Enough to Play With Him
According to a report on NFL Network from Ian Rapoport this morning, Suh gave an interesting speech to defensive teammates last week.
“I’m told he told them: ‘I run this defense, I’m going to be here for the next five years, there is no guarantee any of you will be as well. Only a handful of guys are good enough to play with me right now,’” Rapoport said. “He also said the schemes were not good enough, the techniques were not enough and everyone needed to be better, he said ‘follow me.’”
Per Rapoport, the Dolphins themselves were split on how to take it.
“My understanding is the room was split, some saw this as the kind of address a leader would give. Others, just something they’ve never heard before,” Rapoport said.
