Ndamukong Suh is a bad man. He plays a brand of football that some consider over the line, perhaps even a little dirty. It’s why he’s been on the receiving end of some hefty fines and suspensions, a result of some roaming feet and an occasional and “accidental” kick.
But during Sunday’s game against Buffalo, it was Suh who showed obvious restraint on a sack attempt of Tyrod Taylor. As you can see in the video, Suh held on to Taylor’s arm, opting not to violently throw him to the ground. Taylor, as a result, threw the ball away.

Perhaps you didn’t catch that, but on-field mics caught an irate Suh telling the ref: “You gotta call that dead or I’m gonna slam the f*ck out of him next time.”
Again, reminder, Ndamukong Suh is a bad man. If he says he’s going to slam a player to the ground in violent fashion, safe to say it’s going to happen. Sadly, for the Dolphins, the next play resulted in a 44-yard touchdown pass to Sammy Watkins.
Perhaps next time officials will make a concerted effort to protect quarterbacks in the grasp, lest they incur the wrath of an angry Ndamukong Suh.
