Saints preparing as if Suh will play
 
METAIRIE - The New Orleans Saints will prepare for Sunday night’s game with the Detroit Lions the same way they would have if suspended defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was going to be available.

Suh was suspended by the NFL for two games - including Sunday’s game with the Saints - earlier this week after he stomped on the arm of a Green Bay Packers’ offensive lineman during a Thanksgiving Day game.

The absence of the 6-foot-4, 307-pound Suh might be a problem for the Lions, but the Saints will prepare as if Suh was hurt and questionable for the game, coach Sean Payton said Wednesday.

“We have to prepare for the Lions, no different than if a player showed up as questionable on the final injury report or was limited (in practice),” Payton said. “We have to prepare to play that team, and it’s the team that’s most important.”

We'll find out this evening if he's in or not.

After the DeMarcus Ware debacle, it is prudent to take this approach.

I am trying to win the "Understatement of the Week" award.

Once again Payton learns from past sins, after the mishandling of Ware in 2009, he plans like everyone on the opposing team will play

The only downside I see to all this, is that if Suh plays, he will not have had the week of practice time to prepare specifically for the Saints. Which might mean that instead of a specific game plan for attacking the Saints, Suh might just decide to substitute for lack of film/coaching by simply ripping people's heads off by the facemask, stomp on them, kick them, bite, rip their bloody arms out of the socket, throw their severed limbs into the stands, scream like Godzilla, etc. etc. Not having practice time with the team could actually increase the amount of dirty play Suh has to resort to, if he's unprepared for the Saints, because he won't be on the same page as the rest of the Lions defense. On the other hand, he may end up like Brian Urlacher in the Bears game after his mom died -- all pumped up emotionally but fairly ineffective on the field.
