    I'll always remember the one play where Suh never broke stride on the way to Cutler, hitting Long like a windshield hitting an insect. Long was so overmatched in the game with Suh.

    Locker Room poster material.

    I FUCKING HATE SUH!! Not so much because of his recent statement, but because he's a DIRTY player and doesn't hide that part.

    I believe Long will ultimately be rock solid against Suh, and I think he'll be somewhat better, even in this game because he's had a few more games of experience now (every little bit helps when you're a rookie). It's his rookie season so he's still learning the ropes at the NFL level. And I keep reminding myself that he had minimal college experience. Consequently, it's remarkable that he's doing as well as he is this year. Same with Mills. They will get better and better. The cool thing is that NEXT season, we'll see the benefits of starting 2 rookies like this during THIS season. It will pay huge dividends.

    Yeah, Suh isn't my favorite person either Ski.

    Long is going to be a great player. There is no doubt in my mind that in a year or two, he will handle Sue just fine. The guy is still a rook and Sue is one of the best DL in the game. No real surprise. Just wait until they are more evenly matched.

    Yea...as long as Suh does try to take Long's ACL out, but I'm sure he would never intentionally do something like that.:cool:

    I agree.. Long is going to be a monster in a couple years. I don't think he's far from being above average today...

    Kyle is not the best guard we have, YET. You better play nice Ndamukong, I also foresee a golden future. A LONG one.

    p.s. didn't Wootton create the Golden Boy series? Seriously mixed up individual this Suh.

    I wish the league would do more to limit players who try to injure others with dirty plays. If a player injures a guy with a cheap shot dirty play (like Suh stomping a guy) then the violator should be suspended for the same amount of games that the injured player is out. In other words, if a guy like Suh puts Cutler on IR with a season ending type injury - then Suh's season is over too. No pay for him during these games. If it's a lessor injury, say 2 or 3 games missed, then Suh (or any dirty player who injures someone with a dirty play) sits for the equal amount of games, without pay. Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, type of thing here. I think the dirty players in the league would be more apt to take the league seriously then. Right now, these fines don't mean anything to players like Suh who make so much money that the fines are chump change to them.

    IF Long can cut those negative stats in half, it will be more than enough to keep us in the game. I'll also argue that McCown does a better job of getting rid of the ball than Cutler, meaning he won't be holding on to the ball as long. That alone might be a difference maker. Combine that with improved play from Long, and we might be in good shape.

    Get the ball out quickly/don't run up the middle with every running play. This offense is good enough to compete against that d-line, by making the quick, not the big play.

    The line has been playing great this year.

    The Lions will be the test for a while though.

    I agree. The key is having a QB who makes smart, snap second decisions! Get the ball out of your hands in under 2-2.5 seconds. Are you listening, JAY??!!!!!

    Well I'm sure Long learned a lot from Suh last time. Suh wont have near the impact he did last time.

    I agree. When Long faced Suh earlier, he had only played 3 games in his entire NFL career. And he only had minimal college football experience too. Talk about baptism by fire. Everything I read about Long says he's a real fast learner. So I'd imagine he will have progressed some by now. Mills too for that matter.

    Suh is a beast... he dominates most he goes against. I also have no issues with the way Long has played. You cannot expect a guy with a few NFL starts.... and just a few more college starts to come in and "handle" one of the best DTs in the NFL. It is just an unrealistic expectation.

    For this year if Long is just average and he stays healthy, builds skills and confidence I'll be a happy camper. Next year.... I'll start having hopes that he can shut down Suh.

    Maybe it's something in the corn, both Suh and Incognito were Nebraska 'Huskers

    The biggest differences I see are McCown is much better at the progressions than Cutler, and he is not as prone to force plays which tend to blow up on him. On the other hand, when healthy, he is more slippery than McCown and he can make any throw a QB can possibly make.
