Delhomme Bodyslam is Memorable for Ndamukong Suh

Ndamukong Suh was on the Colin Cowherd show today as I was driving to lunch and he was recounting some of his biggest, most memorable hits.  First things first, Suh and Cowherd talked about Suh’s push / forearm / decimation of Jay Cutler when the Lions played the Bears.

Then, when talking about his more memorable hits, Suh brought up his violent facemask / bodyslam of Jake Delhomme. I couldn’t help but enjoy him recounting it with a bit of a chuckle. I am not sure if it was a sheepish chuckle because he ended up getting in trouble for the hit or whether he was just enjoying the memory of nearly killing one of the NFL’s elderly QBs. We know it couldn’t have been out of respect for the history and tradition of the Great Lakes Classic.

Now, I still can’t defend that hit that Suh put on Delhomme. It deserved a penalty for sure. That being said, I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t want a beast like Suh on the Cleveland Browns. I would be lying if I said that I didn’t hope Phil Taylor and Jabaal Sheard ended up being 3/4 of what Ndamukong Suh looks to be for the Lions.

    “he was just enjoying the memory of nearly killing one of the NFL’s elderly QBs.”

    that is an amazing sentence for some reason.

    Craig,

    This incident was a low point in the history of the Cleveland Browns. As Jake was laying there, no one — not a single Brown — got in Suh’s face. He just cheap-shot their QB and their leader, and they meekly stood around like a bunch of gutless wimps. Even WE were embarrassed.

    Sincerely,

    I don’t agree that this was such a low point for us. We only seemed to have two players that witnessed what happened and they both immedeately started motioning to the refs and one of them was then hit by another Lions player.

    I think the bigger culprit was the tone that Mangini had set. Had a player gotten a personal foul for getting into Suh’s face, Mangini would have flipped his lid. What happened there was exactly what the HC trained them to do.

    I think even that early in the preseason, all the players realized it was just Jake Delhomme.
