Boomer Esiason on Ndamukong Suh: ‘The fact that he can snap on the field, I don’t believe he should be on the field’

The NFL Today on CBS analyst Boomer Esiason shared his thoughts on Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s one game suspension for stomping on Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers leg in their week 17 game being overturned by appeals officer Ted Cottrell.

“I think they should have suspended him, I think they should have upheld the suspension,” Esiason told The Jim Rome Show. “Given his history, and we know his history, you just can’t just wipe it clean from the slate and the fact that he can snap on the field, I don’t believe he should be on the field.”

If anything the former league MVP felt Suh would have gotten off easy had the one game suspension been upheld.

“I actually felt they should have given him maybe a two or four game suspension to start next season because this is basically ridiculous, there’s no place for it,” Esiason said. “Anybody who watched it and wasn’t a Detroit Lions fan and wasn’t clouded by the fact that they were rooting for the Lions knew exactly what he was doing and knew that he knew exactly what he was doing.”

As for Suh’s explanation of his foot being so numb in the cold weather that he couldn’t tell the difference between Rodgers and the ground: the former quarterback wasn’t buying it.

“It doesn’t even warrant a response it’s so stupid,” said Esiason.
