Matt Schaub Says Ndamukong Suh "Not Houston Texan-Worthy"

New, comments

Well, obviously. But it's still going to make national headlines.

Gregory Shamus

Matt Schaub had his weekly broadcast with Sports Radio 610 this morning. Schaub, a guy who never says ANYTHING controversial or substantive to the media and flatly refused to even discuss Ndamukong Suh in the wake of the Texans' win in Detroit on Thanksgiving, had this to say when asked if he'd ever want Suh to be a Houston Texan:

When asked Monday in an interview with SportsRadio 610 in Houston whether he would ever want Suh to be his teammate with the Texans, Schaub said, "No."

"You don't want a player like that. The stuff that he stands for and the type of player he is, that's not Houston Texan-worthy," Schaub said. "That's not what we're about as a football team, as individuals, collectively as a group, we're not that type of person."

Indeed. If there is one thing I can say with a modicum of confidence, it is that kicking dudes in the junk is not Houston Texan-worthy. It's also not people-I'd-want-to-hang-out-with-worthy, or people-who-aren't-certifiable-worthy, or people-who-enjoy-living-outside-prison-worthy. Actually, I have a hard time imagining prisoners go around kicking each other in the twig and berries, so I don't want to limit the group to only those who live outside prison walls. Even felons know better than to forcibly strike another man in his sack.

Let's hope that the NFL decides that Suh is suspension-worthy.

UDPATE: The NFL has decided that Suh would not face a suspension, but might face a fine.
