ALLEN PARK — So now Cam Newton refers to the Lions’ Pro Bowl defensive tackle as “Donkey Kong Suh.”
Ah, very funny. Until Sunday when the Detroit Lions play at Carolina.
In a press conference on Wednesday the Panthers quarterback repeatedly referred to Ndamukong Suh as “Donkey Kong Suh” — an unflattering mispronunciation of Suh’s first name, to be sure.
Here’s what Newton said over and over again:
“My main focus right now is focusing on the Detroit Lions. I think I got my hands full trying to find ways to stay protected by Donkey Kong Suh and my fellow Auburn teammate Nick Fairley.’’
Suh doesn’t need extra motivation on Sundays, but it might give him more of a kick to sack Newton this Sunday.
Should be interesting.
