Is Ndamukong Suh Too Dirty For The NFL?

After hearing comments by opposing players over the last few weeks it's official, Ndamukong Suh is a dirty player.  After a kick to the groin (albeit unintentional) Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub labeled Suh unfit to be a part of his organization.  On Sunday Colts players were furious when Suh supposedly taunted an injured player (Winston Justice) during the game.  Last year he was suspended two games for stepping on a player.  There's no doubt his antics are questionable and probably cross the line of good sportsmanship, but would you want him on your team?

Of course you would.  Ndamukong Suh is a throwback to the days of yester year.  His goal is to wreak havoc and hurt people on the football field.  He plays with malice in his heart and a total disregard for the feelings and intentions of his adversaries.  25 years ago the NFL would have worshipped a guy like this.  A fierce warrior whose sole intention is to inflict pain upon his opponents.  Unfortunately for Suh the 2012 version of NFL football is a "softer" game.  The governing body is much more cognizant of player's safety and the fans are much more sensitive when it comes to cheap shots and unnecessary acts of violence.

Personally, I don't have a problem with Ndamukong  Suh's intensity and passion for the game, I have a problem with his production.  Coming out of Nebraska Suh was a beast that couldn't be blocked and could tackle anyone within a ten yard radius.  In the pros he gets double teamed a lot and you almost never hear his name called on a tackle.  So far he's made zero Pro Bowls and zero all defensive teams.  That being said I'd still like to have a guy in my team that's 6'4, 307 pounds, runs a 4.6 40 yard dash, and might bite your finger off if you stick it in his helmet.  What about you?
