Ndamukong Suh 'Out Of Control,' Says Jets Matt Slauson

New York Jets guard Matt Slauson played with Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh at Nebraska. So, you would think Slauson might be forgiving or defend Suh in the wake of his ejection Thanksgiving Day for stomping on the arm of Green Bay Packers lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith. Not so. Slauson said Suh was "out of control."

"Somebody needs to get him under control, because he's trying to hurt people," Slauson said in an exclusive interview with the Post after practice Friday. "It's one thing to be an incredibly physical player and a tenacious player, but it's another thing to set out to end that guy's career."

"I have no idea what the league can do, because apparently what they're doing now isn't working," Slauson said. "I don't know what's going on with him, but something isn't right. I mean, they've fined him out the butt, but he still doesn't think he's doing anything wrong. I don't know what they're going to have to do, but something has to be done."

Urgency is necessary, Slauson said, because of the obvious malice in Suh's illegal on-field actions.

"Last year, when he got fined for the takedowns on the quarterbacks, it looked like he was trying to kill them," Slauson said. "I'm all for physicality, but within the framework of the game. I know it takes a different type of person to be a defensive lineman -- you've kinda got to be a jerk who wants to take the quarterback's head off. But you [shouldn't] literally want to kill them like he does."
