DAVIE—The perception of Ndamukong Suh might be this simple: If he’s on your team, he’s fine. If not, he’s a dirty player.
Suh hasn’t responded to what Blount said because it came out after Suh’s post-game press conference, but some teammates stood up for him today.
“I really don’t care, honestly,” defensive end Andre Branch said of Blount’s criticism. “Ok, cool. I’ve been called a dirty player, too. I’m fine with that, and I’m sure Suh is fine with that.”
Is he dirty?
“He’s an amazing player,” Branch said. “One of the best d-tackles in football. So I guess if ‘dirty’ goes with that, then I guess he can live with it.”
Miami coach Adam Gase also defended Suh.
“I didn’t see that,” he said, unsure of the specific offense that upset Blount. “Maybe there’s something from the past that I don’t know about.
“I know since I’ve been here, Suh has done everything right. He’s played hard. He’s tried to do everything he can to help our defense play well. It’s hard for me to comment on something that I’m not really sure exactly what (Blount) was talking about. I can’t say I really understand what he was getting at there.”
