(WSCR) We know that Ndamukong Suh stomped on Evan Dietrich-Smith, but do we know why?
Former Packers lineman Matt Brock appeared on 750 The Game in Portland and said Suh may have stomped Dietrich-Smith because he was annoyed over having his shoelaces constantly untied by the Packers.
Brock said his information comes from the Packers offensive line coach, James Campen.
Check out what Brock said:
So my friend, James – man, I probably shouldn’t say his name, he told me not to tell this, and I was like, “Whatever,” – he’s the offensive line coach. The center, or one of his guards, he’s had like one or two starts in his career and he’s got to play against Suh. So he’s pretty puckered, right? So, he talking to James, the offensive line coach, going, “What do I do? What do I do?”
James is just in his mind going, “This guy is going to get killed. I got to take his mind off it, give him something else to do.” So he says, “Ok, every time you’re in a pile, I want you to focus on something. I want you to untie his shoes.”
He goes, “What?”
“Anytime you can, just reach in, he’s got floppy shoe laces, he doesn’t spat or anything, just untie his shoes. It will irritate him.
He untied his shoes three times in the game. That’s why he stomped him. That’s why he banged his head on the ground and he stomped him. When (Suh) went to the sideline it looked like he was telling the coach, “I didn’t do anything” and he put his foot up like, “I didn’t stomp him. I didn’t do anything.” He was actually going, “The damn guy keeps untying my shoes.”
