Blount the latest to lob 'dirty' bomb at Ndamukong Suh

Stop me if you heard this before: Ndamukong Suh is accused of being a dirty player.

This time the charge comes out of New England, where Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount took exception to some extra contact from the Dolphins defensive tackle during Sunday's Week 17 matchup in Miami. With less than four minutes to play and the Patriots cruising with a three-touchdown lead, Blount ended a short run with Suh laying across his lower body. When Suh pushed Blount moments later, the brouhaha was on.

"There's not many guys in this league like that guy. He's a dirty player. He's always been a dirty player," Blount told WBZ-TV in Boston after the game. "There's no room in the game for that. At some point in time, guys have to defend themselves when he's doing the things that he does."

Blount was flagged 15 yards for yanking off Suh's helmet during their altercation. Suh had been overly frisky earlier in the game as well.

"All in all, he got his ass beat. They lost," Blount said. "He ran into the locker room after the game. We're good."

Reminder: Suh's been doing this for a long time.

A lonnnnng time ...

Jay Cutler doesn't miss the man.

And, ah yes, the stomp that started it all ...
