Warren Sapp Is Ndamukong Suh's Latest Detractor

Ndamukong Suh was named to the Pro Bowl this season, but the Detroit Lions defensive tackle still has his fair share of detractors. The newest detractor is none other than Warren Sapp, the outspoken lineman who is expected to eventually be a Hall of Famer.

Sapp went on record Wednesday to talk about Suh, saying the Lions' injuries during and following his rookie year have ultimately hampered his development and allowed quite a few holes to be found in his game.

"From his first year to second year, he hasn't worked on anything. You are looking at the same guy rushing in the same fashion that he was when he first got in the league. I understand that you'll do it your first year because no one has seen it. Second year, you better come show me something, son, you came with the same bull rush.

"All I have to do (as a offensive lineman) is give myself a nice base and get ready to go."

It'll be interesting to see if Suh has any sort of response to Sapp's criticisms or he allows his play on the field to quell Sapp's doubts.
