who fails upward better: Whitlock, Kiffin, or Brandon?
The National Football Post looks at the comparison that many have already made between Reggie White, and "The Boy Named Suh". A lot of in roads between the two are clear, and Suh possesses the skill and aggression that made Reggie White a hall of famer. Like with all other comparisons, especially with a hall of famer involved, there are going to be disagreements. Either way, I think this is a good situation for the Lions, to have a player who creates this much positive buzz.
I did, however, find a lot of humor a response to the article from a reader.
"Sunday he got handled by the Bucs' Davin Joseph. Two tackles, no sacks, no QB pressures, no splash plays whatsoever. Nada. Zilch. He's not worthy to even carry Reggie White's jock strap at this point. Maybe in a few years. Maybe."
I'm not certain what game he was watching, but this was funny to me. Suh created consistent pressure on the Quarterback, drew constant double and some times triple teams. Infact, Tampa ran most of their run formations, and Quarterback movements away from Suh.
Forgive me, I'm rambling.....
Posted for my non-twitter having peeps. Hoke calls Vincent Smith 'Schmitty', but there were no injury/personnel bombshells this week.
Bonus (UM-ND intro missing from live broadcast):
"The Ghost of Jay Cutler" takes a road trip to UTL/photo essay:
Boise at Toledo on ESPN
Iowa St. at UConn on ESPN2.
Drinking Black Butte Porter.
This probably doesn't warrant its own tread but what the hell, it's a slow day on the board.
I just ran into Justin Turner at the bank here in Scottsdale, AZ. He came in rockin' a UM Football Addidas shirt. I gave him a big "Go Blue" while thinking to myself, "man, I've seen this guy somewhere before." Sure nuff, I then spotted his badass UM tatoo on his forearm.
I asked if it was him and he affirmed. We shook hands and I gave him my best wishes. He looked like he was in great shape, I really hope things work out for him in the long run. He was my favorite recruit by far from his class, I hope we see him wrecking receivers in the near future. We could have really used that guy, I was shocked at his size. He's no T Rich or Boo Boo, I'll say that much.
It's pretty clear he still bleeds maize n blue. He seemed happy they won last week after I mentioned our epic victory.
Maybe I'll get out to catch a game of his at Scottsdale CC this year. He'll always be a Wolverine in my book, even though he never played a snap in the big house :( Go Blue!!
