Ndamukong Suh says his past will always haunt him

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh continues to claim that he accidentally kicked Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin during last Thursday’s Thanksgiving game.

Suh believes that he’ll never get the benefit of the doubt with the NFL because of last year’s Thanksgiving stomp against the Packers.

“I think I’m always going to be punished in some form or fashion for last Thanksgiving,” Suh said, per the Detroit Free-Press. “I mean, I’ve apologized for it and I’m going to continue to apologize for it. It’s something that happened, a mistake that I made.

“I’m living up to it and continuing to move past it. Some people may not, some people will and some people will teeter-totter back and forth between it, depending on whatever the situation is or whatever may happen as we had this last incident on Thanksgiving.”

Suh is right.  But I think if he cleans up his act on and off the field, sooner or later people will notice that he’s changed and give him the benefit of the doubt.
