I couldn’t help but laugh at this.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday that Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh had an interesting way of motivating his teammates prior to Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.
“I’m told he told them: ‘I run this defense, I’m going to be here for the next five years, there is no guarantee any of you will be as well. Only a handful of guys are good enough to play with me right now,'” Rapoport said. “He also said the schemes were not good enough, the techniques were not enough and everyone needed to be better, he said ‘follow me.'”
Sounds like Suh may have alienated some teammates.
“My understanding is the room was split, some saw this as the kind of address a leader would give. Others, just something they’ve never heard before,” Rapoport said.
