Ndamukong Suh: Not My Job to Worry About Hitting Too Hard
And Suh doesn't care.
"It's not my job to really worry about whether I hit a guy too hard or not,'' Suh said. "I was just going after the ball and trying to make a play and that's what I'll continue to do.''
It's not surprising that Suh isn't concerned about a fine. Suh has already been guaranteed more than $40 million, so a fine of $10,000 or so (which is the standard fine for infractions of that nature) is peanuts to him. As long as the NFL isn't going to suspend him, he's free to keep taking cheap shots at quarterbacks, the way he did to Delhomme.
That's why Browns backup quarterback Seneca Wallace is calling for Suh to be suspended. Wallace thinks a fine isn't enough.
Frankly, Wallace is right. Suh's hit on Delhomme was vicious and could have caused a serious injury. Suh has the potential to be a great NFL player, but the NFL should send him a message that it is, in fact, his job to worry about the health and safety of his opponents.
