Schwartz continues to defend Ndamukong Suh's production
Ndamukong Suh and his shenanigans will continue to be a topic of conversation until he proves he’s matured in the 2012 season.
Coach Jim Schwartz addressed reporters at the NFL Combine this morning (Thursday) and it was one of the questions he was asked, according to reports on Twitter.
Schwartz said Ndamukong Suh played very well, but Thanksgiving and some of the other things that happened “overshadowed” his productivity.
Of course the Thanksgiving game is when he stomped on Green Bay’s Evan Dietrich-Smith and was subsequently suspended for two games.
His sack and tackle numbers were down dramatically from his rookie season. We’ve been told by Lions management that this is not a concern. If he’s suspended again, I would suspect the concern level would be raised.
