Ndamukong Suh is one of the hottest topics in the NFL right now. Suh's incident in the Green Bay Packers' game on Thanksgiving day was enough to get a fire started. The only thing was, the fire was already started from several previous penalties and three fines Suh had been hit with.
I can't speak for some of these other cases since I haven't studied them as closely, but my opinion on Suh is that he is not a dirty player and he has been wrongly fined at least once.
Suh's "stomping" incident (to me it looked like more of a light kick; he put no weight on the player's arm and inflicted no visible damage or pain) was overblown, but at the same time, that was one incident that I have to agree with his critics on.
Suh never should have lost his cool in that manner, and that's something he will have to work on going forward. It was disappointing to see for someone who has defended him and regarded him so highly despite his play being called dirty. He will likely be fined a fourth time for the incident, and he will also likely be suspended.
Outside of that play, however, I haven't seen one incident that should earn Suh the "dirty" label. Fines for violent tackles on quarterbacks Jake Delhomme and Andy Dalton may have been required based on today's rules, but Suh was simply playing football the way it used to be played by some of the game's all time greats.
The one fine that was blatantly undeserved was the fine for a "forearm to the back of the head" of Jay Cutler. Replay proved that it was actually a simple violent push to a player that should have been deemed a runner, and there wasn't an illegal thing about it.
All of this aside, it doesn't look like Ndamukong Suh is going to change his style of play because of some penalties and fines, so expect more fines against Suh in the future.
