Ndamukong Suh’s Prediction Doesn’t Come to Fruition


Nearly fifty eight thousand fans experienced heartache on Sunday at Ford Field. Ndamukong Suh recently made some comments indicating that the Detroit Lions would not lose another game at their home stadium this season. Unfortunately, he is already putting his foot in his mouth. He hopefully will remove it soon though since it’s evident that he’s the emergency kicker on the Lions roster.

Jason Hanson went down and Suh had to attempt an extra point against the Jets. That was not the biggest injury of the day though. Quarterback Matthew Stafford was injured once again in his young NFL career with his tender right shoulder knocking him out of the game in the fourth quarter. This gave the Jets hope to make a long comeback from ten points down to tie the game and ultimately send it to overtime.

There is no fathomable excuse as to why Sam Bradford would be taking snaps in the last drive of a game that ended up 44-6. It even builds morale for the back-up quarterback if he is able to go under center and gain some valuable game experience.

It also gives the coach an insurance policy in case his golden boy, Bradford, is lost to injury.
