"My daddy left home when I was three and he didn't leave much to ma and me...just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze. Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid, but the meanest thing that he ever did was before he left, he went and named me "Sue"...
Just like the boy in Johnny Cash's hit song, "A boy named Sue", Ndamukong Suh seems to play with a chip on his shoulder.
As the Detroit Lions top draft pick, Suh came into the 2010 season with high expectations. Suh has been quoted as saying he isn't worried about goals or setting numbers...just trying to be a force out on the field and letting offensive lineman and quarterbacks feel his presence.
During the preseason, Suh was already welcomed into the NFL by getting double teamed by veteran players. Suh's lack of NFL experience didn't seem to matter as he constantly made his way into the opposing teams backfield.
During Sunday's matchup with the Chicago Bears, Suh continued "letting his presence be known" by pressuring the offensive line and chasing Jay Cutler all afternoon.
Suh is the type of defensive lineman that doesn't always need his game stats to be outstanding to be considered a dominate player. Suh takes on multiple blockers freeing up Kyle Vanden Bosch and others to roam free and make plays.
Against the Bears, Suh did have a sack while Vanden Bosch tallied 11 total tackles. The Lions did loss the game on a tough call in the endzone 19-14.
With Suh playing "angry" this season, the Detriot Lions have a chance to improve on last seasons growth.
