Ndamukong Suh shrugs off Brandon Marshall's comments

Jonathan Daniel

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall didn't care for Ndamukong Suh's take down of Jay Cutler on Monday night, but the Lions defensive tackle isn't taking the bait.

The Detroit Lions didn't do much right during their 13-7 prime time loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday night, but not many people around the NFL found much wrong with Ndamukong Suh's rough take down of Jay Cutler during the game, either. Except for Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who called the violent tackle "not cool" on Twitter after the game, and added "[g]reat players don't have to do that."

The NFL league office reviewed the play and announced the hit was within the rules, and even Cutler has called it a clean hit, so Suh isn't taking the bait and getting dragged into a feud. The talented DT did say after the game, "I've said this many times, I don't want to hurt anybody," but when Marshall appeared on ESPN on Wednesday to double down on his stance, Suh said nothing in response.

The Lions are now 2-4 on the season, and they can only afford two or three more losses on the year if they want to make the playoffs, so it's a positive sign that Suh isn't getting side tracked with a silly feud. Detroit has plenty of work to do as it is, right?

The Lions host the Seahawks in Week 8.
