Ndamukong Suh the NFL's best trash talker?

One NFL analyst thinks the league's best trash talker is Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.


Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been known to get under the skin of his opponents at times. Quite often this is because of a violent hit or what opponents perceive to be a cheap shot. Last Thanksgiving, for example, Suh's groin kick heard 'round the world drew the ire of the Houston Texans.

While Suh could certainly just let his play do the talking, he's far from quiet when on the field. He doesn't just get under opponents' skin with his play; he brings the trash talk aspect as well. Actually, he is apparently well known for this, as NFL AM's Eric Davis recently named Suh the league's best trash talker.

It's no wonder Suh has often been described as one of the most disliked players in the NFL. He's the type of player who is loved by teammates and hated by most opponents given the way he plays and carries himself on the field.

Interestingly, Green Bay Packers rookie defensive end Datone Jones is a big fan of Suh's trash talking ways. Jones wrote this in response to the above tweet:

I'm sure some Packers offensive linemen have a different opinion on the matter.
