Suh Thinks the 4-6 Lions are Still in the Playoff Race

You think the Lions are not thinking about the postseason?

Don’t tell Ndamukong Suh that.

Tuesday the big man of the 4-6 club told the Detroit Free Press that he feels the playoffs are still very much a possibility.

“We’re still in the race,” he said Tuesday. “We made it a lot tougher than we did last year. It’s a tough position to be in, but it’s a hole that we dug ourselves in, and it’s something that we need to take care of if we want to get to the next level.

“This is a great way to get out of the hole and make some noise. People always say if you want to win a championship, this is the time to get hot.”

“Everybody’s beatable,” Suh said. “Obviously, Green Bay showed that (against Houston). We played a tough game against Green Bay. Unfortunately, we lost there, but we don’t take moral victories.

“It’s going to be a tough game, no matter what. And we look forward to the challenge. I personally love going against great running backs and passers and having an opportunity to stop that.”

Hmmm…again, this is a team that is 2 games under .500, and has one two-game winning streak to its name.

Unless they go on a HUGE run, this team will be talking draft picks in December, and not the postseason.

    I agree with your skepticism, but you can’t get down on Suh for not giving up… People would be killing him if he said, “This season is over. We are terrible.” Pretty much a non story here, Matt.
