Manbeast Suh Will Visit Tampa

March 19th, 2010

Josh Freeman’s buddy, manbeast Ndamukong Suh, will sit down for milk and cookies with Mark Dominik and Raheem The Dream in Tampa on April 13, so writes Woody Cummings of The Tampa Tribune.

The decision to meet with Suh, meanwhile, is nothing out of the ordinary. Each team is allowed to bring 30 prospects to its facility for visits and workouts, so it’s likely the Bucs have also scheduled a visit with [Gerald] McCoy as well.

So Suh and McCoy likely will try to impress the Bucs in person to try and score the higher-paying draft spot, if, in fact, they’re both available when the Bucs pick at No. 3 in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Suh should be motivated, since we already know he wants to play in Tampa.

It’ll really be something if McCoy and Suh are available at No. 3. Talk about added pre- and post-pick scrutiny on Dominik.

    Hopefully Dom can give Rah an extra chewy cookie, so he will be occupied and doesn’t break into one of those “violence” tirades.

    Id hate to have the man run back to Nebraska and hide in a snow bank or something.

    Don’t worry Eric, Rah is very busy this time of year. He is getting his playlist together for Training camp. 🙂

    That $18 divedend check sTill has me laughing, let me tell you.

    And now, from Nebraska, #99, Ndamukong SUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rah needs to practice his chest bumps for the Manbeast. Nobody wants to go play for a coach that has a wuss chest bump!

  5. DAve Says:

    Even more reason to trade down in my mind. Too many holes and the draft is too deep.

    Trading down would normally PROBABLY land them a 2nd and a 4th, assuming they trade dwon and stay in the top 10 like many suspect could happen.

    If Suh is available, they could trade down and probably get another 2nd, 3rd, and a 1st for next year.

    If they are both their at #3, that’s good news for us other than a choice between the two. It would change the landscape of the draft. So many teams are probably assuming they’ll be gone, that they will re-think their pick. That could make the 2nd round much more interesting.

    hilarious about the cookie.

    if rah is staying on i request an interpreter b/c i cant understand what he says.

    i am concerned about his ability to say ndomakan suh. it may sound like “second and two” and rah may get confused during the game about down and distance.

    this could be a probhlem.

  8. Eric Says:

    On second thought the chewy cookie is too risky.

    They need to go to a restaurant that has those wooden triangles with the golf tees, or the “find all the animals in this picture”. It will take Rah several hours to figure those out.

    That should keep the Dream from interrupting Dominik while he reassures Suh that the Glazers arent cheap and go out of their way to fully compensate players purely on merit…….and just love the fans and the community to death while they spare no expense in their quest to bring home another Super Bowl Championship.

  9. Mike J Says:

    bucfanjeff has the right of it.Suh vs. McCoy would be a win-win situation.

  10. BigMacAttack Says:

    My pick is Suh over McCoy, based on overall strength, if their play is equal. Suh should be a great player with the right coaching. I think Steve White would be a good candidate to develop either of these young tackles….provided they don’t draft a punter in the first round.

  11. thomas Says:

    another organization, try one willing to pay for a d coordinator, would be best to develop either of these 2 guys.

    All of you shhep ask yourselves: How well did Roy Miller and Kyle Moore develop last year?

    Probably Jim Bates’ fault, huh?

  12. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    Suh SUh Suh SUh !!!

    I don’t care what Palowski says!!

    I want Suh !!

    *** thomas***

    Must be so fun to be around you and your attitude.

    On the positive side…
    Kyle Moore sarted out injured and didn’t play much until later in the season so it was slow.
    Roy Miller looked real good most the year when he was in there. He did hit a rookie wall late in the season, but that usually doesn’t happen again.

    But the hell with that, lets just be as negative as possible and piss on everyone, how fun!

    OKAY ALL. Pay attention.

    Suh is by far the better DT. I have evidence that most don’t realize, but first I must say this. Since the end of the College football season, all I heard was “McCoy is faster than Suh.” Well if you call 0.03 seconds faster in the 40 yard, go ahead. In my book that’s not much different. Now after the combine, all I hear is “McCoy has more moves than Suh.” This too is ridiculous. Most of the time in Nebraska, Suh was playing a 2 gap defense, which forces him to play the waiting game while the play to develops, then attack. When Suh was unleashed you get games like the one against Texas. McCoy had the privilege to play in a 1 gap defense like the traditional Bucs defense and after Coach Raheem took over last year. This defense allows for the DT to pick 1 spot between 2 lineman and shoot through the O-Line. Which is much more inducive to sacks and pass breakups.

    With all that being said. MY EVIDENCE IS THIS. Now that you know that Suh and McCoy played in different defenses. I believe the best way to compare the two is by game play and since they had 5 common opponents last season. I took a look at the stats. McCoy had 12 tackles and 3 sacks in those games. Suh, on the other hand, 33 tackles and 6 sacks. … Hmmm. 33 > 12 and 6 > 3. Right? Okay maybe, your saying, “But Suh did much of it against Texas.” Here are McCoy and Suh’s totals minus the Texas game from both. McCoy – 9 tackles, 2 sacks. Suh – 21 tackles, 2 sacks. Yep, Suh had 12 tackles and 4 sacks in one game against Texas, which was more than McCoy in all the games with common opponents. Suh did this in a 2 gap defense. Just imagine if he was in a Tampa 2 defense.

    NO DOUBT. Suh > McCoy

    Don’t hesitate Bucs fans, let everyone know we want Suh!

    good stuff richy

  16. Mike J Says:

    RichyBronx , this is a good point. Mr. White thinks Suh is a more two-gap guy, but that was what he was asked to do in the scheme. I think he could move to the “three-technique” very easily. But statwise, everyone seems to forget that we are comparing a senior to a junior–who knows what kind of stats McCoy would put up in college in 2010??
    thomas, if you check the stats, you will find that Roy Miller ranked up near the very top among rookie D-linemen in tackles and sacks.He made a couple All Rookie teams IIRC.

  17. Aldo Says:

    if he choice is between this two guys i preffer SUH, overall, SUH looks better han McCoy, and, maybe McCoy fits better on the Tampa 2 Defense, but i guess that scheme will be out sooner than later, remember about raheem and the jim bates system??? and now is no the same tampa 2, is hybrid of that, so is not necessarily that McCoy really fits better than SUH, all depends the way we uses every player

    if the choice is about this two guys i guess preffer SUH, but i stand the best thing we can do is trade down and get Brian Price and Why not Eric Berry

  18. Mike J Says:

    I read some really rave comments by Monte about Berry:
    Still, safety isn’t a huge need now for the club.
