I’m not sure what game Ndamukong Suh was playing in last night, but it sure as hell sounds like he didn’t get to watch that big game in Atlanta–even though he was not only playing in it, but playing pretty darn well, too.
Suh and the Los Angeles Rams defense had a pretty incredible night, holding Tom Brady and the New England Patriots to just one touchdown and two field-goals. Perhaps the only area in which they struggled was their ability to slow down Pats wide receiver Julian Edelman, who racked up 10 receptions for 141 yards.
That performance was enough to earn Edelman MVP honors…even though Suh was still somehow convinced that his team “eliminated” the 32-year-old wideout.
Seriously. Here’s what Suh had to say following the loss (via WEEI Radio):
“He’s an elite player, plays hard, found some holes in our defense in the first half and pretty much the third quarter,” Suh said. “In my opinion, just thinking back, we eliminated him, even though he got yardages. We just have to not allow points to get on the board and give our offense more opportunities to score.”
Sorry, Suh. But allowing a wide receiver to account for 141 of a team’s 262 total passing yards is NOT the definition of “eliminating him”. Not even close.
If that’s how he describes his defense’s effort vs. Edelman, I’d love to hear what Suh has to say about the Pats defense’s performance vs. Jared Goff and company.
