Players don't want to fight Ndamukong Suh

August, 21, 2014
As part of our NFL Confidential survey, players were asked who among their peers would they least like to end up in a fight with.

Considering a season ago, Ndamukong Suh was named the most feared player in the NFL for what he does on the field, that the Detroit Lions defensive tackle is now the players guys in the league would not like to fight is of little surprise.

Suh received 18 percent of the vote from 82 players polled, followed by Houston defensive end J.J. Watt, with 11. They were the only two players to receive more than 10 percent of the vote.

If you think about it, though, would anyone really want to fight Suh? That has nothing to do with his demeanor, either. He is a physical specimen at 6-foot-4 and around 300 pounds. By itself, that's intimidating. Then realize most of that is finely tuned muscle, including massive arms and a torso that if he was able to get a punch around on you, there probably wouldn't be a second one.

He also trains relentlessly and works to add muscle and cut body fat -- he is not someone even professional boxers would probably really want to get in a ring with.

Never mind if you don't have any fighting experience.
