As a guest on the NFL Network’s “Around the League Live” Ravens defensive end Chris Canty said he thought Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s hit on Vikings center John Sullivan on Sunday was dirty. Suh plans to appeal the $100,000 fine he received from the NFL.
“I think it was dirty,” Canty said. “I have to say this though: I understand his frustration because offensive linemen do it to defensive linemen all the time. But you just can’t retaliate like that. I’m an advocate of everybody staying away from the low blocks. I don’t understand why guys feel like they have to go low. We lift all of those weights in the offseason, we’re supposed to be the best athletes – surely you can find a way to block a guy other than to cut block him.”
Canty and the Ravens have a date with Suh on Dec. 16, when the Ravens visit the Lions on Monday Night Football. In the meantime, the Ravens will try to win more national respect by playing winning football.
