Suh on holding penalty: ‘I guess I am supernatural’
ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh came to this conclusion based on a holding penalty called against him Sunday at Philadelphia:
“I don’t think I can hold somebody and jump at the same time,” Suh said. “I guess I am supernatural.”
The penalty came on a two-point conversion attempt and was widely viewed as a phantom call.
It’s brought up more debates about whether Suh and teammate Nick Fairley are being called for penalties at times solely because of their reputations for being dirty players.
“Nothing in life is fair,” Suh said. “I just can’t pay attention to them. If I did then my head would go crazy. There would be a lot of stuff to worry about. I just go out there and play.”
As for his discussions with officials to try to get explanations for calls against him and no-calls against offensive linemen, Suh said, “I have a million conversations with the refs. It’s always fun and games there, more or less.”
