"Yeah, we're loaded," an anonymous Detroit Lions player told Yahoo! Sport's Jason Cole after Sunday's 35-33 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. "But we have a couple of guys who don't understand what it takes to win. Just making a couple of plays and thinking that makes you great ... sometimes you want to just shake some of these guys and say, 'Don't you get it?' "
When asked to name one of those teammates, the player responded: "Ndamukong (Suh) would be first."
Suh's play has improved from a disappointing sophomore season after inflated statistics his rookie year put the spotlight on his broad shoulders. Few have noticed.
"He's focused for 90 percent of the time," a teammate told Cole. "But it's the 10 percent that kills you...With (Suh), he loses his cool, and all of a sudden, we're blowing a play or dealing with some controversy. When stars act like that, everybody else thinks it's OK to act like that. It's like with kids. You let one get a little out of control, the other one does the same thing pretty quick. It's human nature."
