The Stomp Heard Around the World

Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh is suspected of intentionally stomping on Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' leg.

Detroit Lions Pro Bowl defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh just doesn't know how to play nice. On Sunday afternoon, Suh let his emotions get the best of him again as he stomped on the leg of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The stomp comes a week after suspended Lions center Dominic Raiola stepped on Chicago Bears defensive lineman Ego Ferguson. Perhaps it was a cold and calculated attack on the downtrodden leg of a Super Bowl winning QB having his way against your team, or perhaps it was an accident. However, the fact that Suh stomped on Rodger's injured leg not once but twice in the same game, speaks volumes. Former NFL referee Mike Pereira doesn't think so. Pereira believes the league will look into the incident but that it doesn't seem all too egregious.

The 27-year-old has been down this road before. Suh has earned his reputation as one of the NFL's most dirty players by receiving many 15-yard penalties, as well as fines for illegal hits. He was also suspended for stomping on former Packers' offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith in a Thanksgiving game in 2011.
