Suh: ‘You just get your job done and come out as winners.’

Posted by Tara Altman on October 6, 2011 – 4:16 pm

“Dallas was definitely a wacky win, but something that we will definitely take and I’m glad that we can learn from it on the winning end. We would rather it not be that way, but I was definitely excited with how we banded together, locked arms and got things done. With that, I definitely had a good smile after that game because I finally got a win in Cowboys Stadium and the great thing about it is that I didn’t have a good game, I didn’t play my best, but that’s the type of team that we have. Nobody really has to play outside the box to get a win, you just get your job done and come out as winners.

“I noticed early when the schedule came out that we were on the road for the first quarter of our season and we’ll be able to come home the second quarter and hopefully sew up a lot of wins. It will be good to hear our crowd when we get into these homes games. Monday Night Football is a great way to start, being our first one back since playing Kansas City and I’m definitely looking forward to that atmosphere.

“I definitely think the Bears are going to try to run the ball, and they’re smart for that. They probably know that crowd noise is going to have a big effect for Jay Cutler to be in passing situations, but they can be in pretty solid run situations and run downhill. We understand as a defense; we go into every single game wanting to shut down the run and make them a one-dimensional team. Our crowd can put that much more into the noise factor and get them into passing situations where we can go back there, hit Cutler and get a lot of sacks.

“They definitely have some big weapons. (Matt) Forte, (Devin) Hester and you can’t forget Cutler. What a lot of people don’t know is that he creates a lot of plays with his feet and he can hurt you if you let him out of the pocket, as well as with his arm. We just need to be able to contain those guys and having gone against them already, having a good feel for them – though this is the first time this year – we have great film to watch of them and have a great feel for the type of players that they have.

“But you always have guys that pop up in the game that you may not have noticed too much in the past. Watching film you can see that these are some of the guys that can step up. It will be very interesting to see who steps up in that tight end role for them because I know that was a big part of their scheme last year with (Greg) Olsen, and they don’t have him again, but they have three tight ends in there and they obviously expect one of them to step up, if not a couple of them.”

    Suh, I think you’re right about what the home crowd will do to help out. Hopefully this stint of home games will help you guys get off to faster starts and that you’ll start getting more pressure on the Qb’s. I’m actually expecting several hits on Cutler and a minimum of three or four sacks. If you’re determined enough I’m sure you’ll make it happen. And hopefully Fairley will complement you so that both of you will be unstoppable together. Your attitude and determination has already made everyone around you better. I expect you’ll do the same for big Nick. It’s time to start having your way on the field, Suh. We fans have the faith you’ll make it happen!

    And you gus talk smack about Packers fans talkin’ like we play for the team. “Suh, I think you’re right…you’ll start getting more pressure….Fairly will complement you….” Take a look at you own fans before talkin’ smack. Oldpuss, nice work.

    Hey Suh, I think that we started a little slow but came on strong later in the game. The sacks will definately come. We just have to be strong both halves of the game. Two weeks in a row we’ve started like this but finished tough. The same has been on offense also. They have to come out and make statements that they are going to possess their land. And that’s by taking it by force. Got to get that run game happening! Your biggest job with the Bears will be to stop the run, but I believe that our defense will be posing it will upon their O-line and that will make the difference but at the same time our offensive line must stress the same determination that our defense maintain to make it happen. I’m confident that we will get the win!!! GO LIONS!!!

    I am so excited for this team. It has been a long time coming that’s for sure! Way to go front office compiling so much young talent with a sprinkle of veteran leadership. Suh you just keep on playing your game and we got your back. We think you are a wonderful young man, play hard and do not change your game…. We love the the way you play and if the outsiders say you play “DIRTY” then they need to learn the game. Football is not golf, this is a vicious game and we enjoy watching the offense squirm when you get off the ball.

    Hey Detroit Lions players and coaches,
    I know you guys will be pumped Monday night, as well as the crowd. You’ll need to play under control. Being too pumped can work against you. To prevent that from happening make sure you work up a real real good sweat during your pre-game workout. When you return from the locker room you’ll be well focused, tension free and clear headed. BTW, you’ll still have eleven games after this one.

    Cali Packers Fan is just a bandwagon who jumps aboard the best team in the league and doesnt have a real connection with his team, therefore trying to put down real fans makes him feel better about himself.

    SUP, NDAM’
    Congrats of course on the win and all the ackalades the team / individual performances have earned thus far! Moreover, I think that your observations of the Monday night game is pretty dead-on. In adding to your points made, let me say that when a team especially a divisional rival has lost respect for you as a potential lost. That next game against them is the best occasion to bring out, and definitely look to instill major fear! Personally, I think that the ‘berry-cubbz’ from past domination of us has never truely viewed us as a lagitimate threat to themselves!
    With that being said, In my view chicago’s keys for success will be heavely, and overly dependant on (1) Passing / RB routes to the outside edges of DETROIT.(2) Special teams / trick-plays out of the back field. (3) delay, delay, and more delayed hand-offs. Knowing that ole’-Gunther will look for this I just wanted to verify the same. Besides that, I think that we are all good as some say! The rest our crowd will inflict contributing to a playoff like atmosphere. They will find it greatly UN-BEAR-ABLE I imagine! But, in the end we will have gotten our proper due from them- fear!
    So, in the end I say may it be again even as you have spoken “…come out with a win”. (GOD-SPEED)

    I’ve been cheering the lions for 30+ years and listening to packer fans for the same amount of time. As much as I hate the Packers , it would make for great TV if they were both undefeated going into Thanksgiving Day but odds are they won’t . But after Atlanta hopefully enacts their revenge on GB for last years playoff game and we win Monday Night. We’ll be alone atop the Division and all bets are off. BTW NFL network shows top 5 teams right now as. 1 GB, 2-NO, 3 NE, 4 Balt, 5 Det.

    @Cali Packer Fan
    No you don’t tell it like it is. You tell it how YOU perceive it to be, but the way you do it is showing a lot about who you are. Which is a kid about 13-15 hrs old, no girlfriend, no life off the computer, and very immature. You have to troll other teams fan sites to harass those teams fans to make yourself feel important because people are listening and responding to you. When in reality nobody does in your real life, and if you acted this way in the presence of these fans you know you would get your @ss beat. So just keep hiding behind your computer and harassing other teams fans cause that’s what 13 year olds do for fun.

    LMAO at Packers fans comin on here and talkin trash. Such an obvious and lame case of message board muscles. Don’t be upset. Ask yourself; why is Packer fan on here? Because he is nervous. And why is Packer fan nervous? Well let’s look at the facts. The 2010-2011 World Champion Packers barely beat the Lions at Lambeau when we were decimated with injuries and then lost to the Lions at Ford Field when we were playing our 3rd string QB. Now we have the 2011-2012 Lions who are greatly improved and a Packer’s team that plays to our strengths (no running game and a weak secondary). Any smart Packers fan is nervous and rightly so. The result will be alot of Packer fans on here checking injury reports and Fairley updates and a few coming on the message boards spewing their nervous false bravado. Big deal. I guarantee they are all chewing their nails in anticipation of Thanksgiving.

    Right now The Lions are looking good. This is great to see the Tigers and Lions winning. Really look forward to Monday night football. This team has been playing together as a team should. Lions are heading in the right direction. It is going to a great game. To bad I live so far away or I would be there. My brother has season tickets. It will light up Monday night.

Through the years I have been ridiculed, mocked and laughed at. Now that our Lions are a legitimate contender Packer fans like this Cali Packer fan is starting to fear that there is a true contender in the NFC North that will defeat them and become the King of the NFC North Jungle. Come Turkey Day Suh and Company will apply lots of heat to the Rodgers and company and melt the Cheese and send the Packers home wearing their stupid looking hats. Restore the Roar, Go Lions!!!!

    The big reason for our sucess besides the obvious potent offense is the most talent d-line in the game. All you guys were awesome against the Bears. I had Bear fans that had to put their hands over their eyes, they felt so bad for Cutler. Everyone talks about Rodgers, how great he is. He has never faced a rush like the Detroit D-line. Yes, he’s good at reading blitzes, but when the pocket continuously caves in, and caves that fast, he will be just as frustrated as Cutler. Go LIONS. I haven’t stopped believing for 25 years. It’s your time. You believe in yourselves. Your fans believe in you. The city believes in you. And now you’ve got most of the NFL believing in you. Keep up the pressure. Keep learning. Great job coaching staff. You deserve just as many kudos for this remarkable squad you’ve put together.

    Always and forever a Lion fan

    I second everything T.N.E. said. I inadvertently left out the O line in my praise. You guys have been phenomenal in protecting Matt, and against the Bears opening up those gaping holes for Javid to blast thru. Keep it up. And Backus, Raiola, after all these years toiling in the trenches, your hard work and dedication has finally payed off big. Great job O-line.

    Semper Fi Marine,
    I have been a Lion fan for 57 years. I also serve in the Marine Corps and I am a Vietnam Vet. I agree with this Marine. Both sides of our team has stepped up to the plate. Monday night showed some of the best fans in the Country. Each week this team has shown that are a contender now.

    I wish I were back home! I want to go to a game so bad now! It is unfortunate that in today’s society you take your life in your hands if you cheer in an opposing teams stadium. I want to go to San Diego…to watch them. When I was growing up it was safe to cheer for the opposing team. The last two games that I went to, we were surrounded by Bronco Fans and Minnesota fans and we had a blast teasing each other. The Vikings Game was the best comeback since 57 (or something like that) and the guy next to me had his head shaved like a Viking’s helmet. In today’s society, he’d probably get beat up and that is really a shame!
    SUH…you are doing an AWESOME JOB…you are making the game FUN again!
