You know as well as I do what everyone has atleast on eye on sunday. The Auburn monster that is Nick Fairley. The defensive tackle who was once considered Carolinas best option at #1 overall in the draft. Ndamukong Suh will learn a few lessons over the next two weeks.
1. The game is played between the whistles anything after that is inexcusable!
2. Use your head and control your temper.
3. Just because your the guy now dosen't make you the guy later!
I have faith in Nick Flair the 13th overall pick last season. He must play full out today. Pedal to the metal and don't hit a tree hit a QB. I love Suh no question the guys a beast but opertunitys like this are few and far between. Nick must take advantage of this NOW. If for no other reason to increase his playing time and stature in the NFL. Detroits vaunted D line has 3 names. Suh, Vanden Bosch and Williams. Avril,Flair,LoJack all guys that are overlooked. Nick is still a top draft prospect. This is his day to step up win or lose and show Schwartz and the NFL that he is for real. 1st round defensive line picks are not backups. Nick Flair will show us that as great as Suh is the drop off isn't much. This will be day 1 of the Nick Fairley "problem" throught the league. We will see him more and more from here on out. Nick must play hard and inspired and realise THIS is the first day of the rest of his career. If he takes advantage of it now there is no telling what will happen in his future. Dominant, Intelligent, Non Stop, and Inspired this is how Fairley WILL play today. This is the begining of the payoff for Mayhews investment,
