Ndamukong Suh entered 2011 with high expectations but he had a down year statistically. Still, Ndamukong Suh is seen as one of the best tackles in the league. However, when asked earlier today on the Doug and Wolf Show on KTAR 620 in Arizona, he denied being in that class. He also answered other questions while promoting Subway Fresh Fit 500 race this Sunday.
Here is his response to being asked if he was the best at his position:
No, I don’t. I think I have a lot of work ahead of myself to even be considered in that group, but I’m definitely not going to hold myself down in any means in terms of having an opportunity to be up there with some of the greats. There’s a lot of guys that are actually in the league right now that are quite good. One of them that I definitely consider a top defensive tackle is Haloti Ngata. He’s consistently doing it year-in and year-out and I look to kind of follow in those footsteps.
When asked what can he improve, here is what Suh said:
There’s a lot of things that I can improve. There’s ways that from my rookie season to last year with having a little bit down stats-wise. There’s other ways from stats to helping my other teammates produce that I can get better at. Being able to go in and watch film when I was back in Detroit early last week, I saw some mistakes that I had and I look forward to correcting them.
Suh continues to answer questions about whether he is a good guy or not:
I think any football is a guy that is able to one, be able to be humble and hungry off the field, but at the same time on the football field understand what they have to get done and be a little bit ferocious. Defensive players kind of have that two-faced kind of way of being able to be very aggressive on the football field and going out there and getting there job done. At the same time, from my own incidents and my own personality, I’m much a person that’s very likable and lovable.
