Ndamukong Suh’s problem can be solved

The Detroit Lions' Ndamukong Suh is one of the best defensive players in the NFL today. He is also said to be one of the dirtiest players in the game. After witnessing his actions in the nationally televised Thanksgiving Day game against the Green Bay Packers, someone needs to really sit this young man down and talk to him. Without agression as a part of your game in the NFL, a player will not last five minutes. If Mr. Suh needs an example of how to be an intimidating force without being fined and ejected, is one person that can be presented to him - Mean Joe Greene.


Does anyone out there remember Mean Joe? A first round draft choice of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1969 out of  North Texas State, Mean Joe played 13 seasons for the Steelers. At 6-4 and 275 pounds, Greene was a combination of size, speed, quickness, strength and intimidation. He was able to have a Hall of Fame career and win four Super Bowls. All without stomping on any of his opponents on national television. Greene faced multiple blockers, just as Suh does. The most striking difference between the two, other than the era that Mean Joe played in (late 60's - early 80's) is that Greene channeled his frustrations into sack and tackle totals. Suh is going to lead the league in fines and suspensions, if he's not careful.


Just a suggestion. Ndamukong, stop making excuses. Stop saying that the man upstairs or your mom will judge if you are a dirty player. Take responsibility for your actions, man up, admit you have made some mistakes, and talk to someone. Someone who has experience in the NFL. A man who can talk about the nuances of playing on an NFL defensive line. That man is Mean Joe Greene. Do it. Quickly.


Forget your reputation, that's already in the tank. I'm saying you should save your career. Now.


Questions:


Is it me, or should Rex Ryan have been fined $75,000  for cursing out the Jets defense instead of fans?   
   


Where would the Dallas Cowboys be without playing in a weak NFC East? 



Did someone say that Mark Sanchez was an elite quarterback? Where are you now? 



After playing with a broken thumb, will anyone in Chicago question Jay Cutler's guts again?

A.L. West - Watch Out ! Here Come The Angels

As of this writng, the Texas Rangers are losing their grip on the A.L. West lead. They have just been demolished by the Boston Red Sox for the second straight game. Rangers manager Ron Washington has made statements to the effect that "I don't watch the scoreboard until mid- September." Manager Ron may want to rethink his stance. Why? No one really has to ask. That noise that you hear is not a hurricane blowing up the East Coast of the USA, it's a freight train named the Anaheim Angels. They have roared back from a seven game deficit, where a great number of observers had them giving up the chase and looking toward 2012. Mike Scioscia, Jered Weaver, Jordan Walden and company are having different thoughts. They have just finished whipping up on the Chicago White Sox (what will Ozzie Guillen have to say about that?) and have a golden opportunity to further demoralize the Rangers during their upcoming weekend series in Arlington. As I stated earlier, do the Rangers want to win the A.L. West? Their pitching has been shaky for the last week, as the Angels have gone on a six game winning streak. Pennants are not won in August, but a team can go a long way toward losing one during the dog days of 100 plus degree heat in Texas. Ron, you better start paying attention to the scoreboard. Nolan Ryan won't be happy if the division is lost after blowing a lead after all those personnel moves.


Questions:


Does anyone really think the Padres' Heath Bell is going to the Giants?


Speaking of the Giants, how is the Carlos Beltran trade looking right now? He hit one out of the park! What else has he done?


Who do the Washington Nationals think they are? Blowing off Prince Fielder before free agency starts? Yeah, he had every intention of playing in the nation's capital....
