Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is an incredible football player. He also may be out of his mind.
Okay, so the 2010 Defensive Rookie of the Year is probably just extremely confident, and you want that in a football player. Aside from being just a freak of an athlete(hell, he's 307 pounds and the Lions' backup kicker) and talented football player, Suh's desire is what makes him so great.
But... c'mon man:
Asked on NFL Network if he thinks the sky is the limit for the Lions, Suh answered, “No question.” And then he let loose with an extremely confident assertion.Link: Pro Football Talk
“I don’t see there’s a reason why we can’t be 16-0,” Suh said. “As long as we put in that hard work throughout -– I don’t know if we’re going to have OTAs, but throughout camp and getting ready for that 2011 season — as long as we stay healthy and are putting in that work, I think we should be happy with what we end up with.”
I totally get that he's just showing confidence in his team and in a way challenging the rest of them to step it up. But, as that article points out, the Lions haven't had a single winning season since 2000, and just went 0-16 in 2008. They went 6-10 in 2010.
The Lions are improving and finally headed in the right direction(it appears), but let's see them get to the playoffs first(or just have a winning record even) before we talk about 16-0 seasons.
