Ndamukong Suh Mum On Suspension, Car Accident

When Ndamukong Suh returned to the Lions earlier this week, he faced plenty of questions about the Thanksgiving stomp, the subsequent suspension and his car accident. This was the media's first chance to really ask him about all that has transpired, and he responded by giving very little in his answers to the questions. Suh basically deflected the questions he didn't want to answer by reiterating that he was looking forward to Sunday's game and leaving it at that. This happened both after practice on Wednesday in the usual meeting with the media and in an interview with 97.1 The Ticket that same day. That specific interview has gained a lot of attention, and you can check it out below.

Personally, I think the questions were legitimate. Perhaps Mike Valenti should have taken the hint that Suh wasn't going to answer them after he repeatedly declined to say anything, but they were fair questions in my opinion. At the same time, Suh doesn't have to answer the questions if he doesn't want to. It's not like he was rude during the interview (he even managed to politely hang up), so I don't necessarily think he was out of bounds.

I do believe Suh could have handled the situation better by giving a little more insight in his initial answers, which probably would have prevented additional questions about the situation. Again, though, it's his right to be guarded about what he says. It just shouldn't be surprising that his lack of comments on what has happened became a story of its own.
