After Houston squeaked by Detroit in overtime for a Thanksgiving victory, Matt Schaub didn't have anything to say about the play in which Ndamukong Suh's cleat hit his groin. But in an interview with SportsRadio 610 in Houston on Monday morning, Schaub ripped the Lions' star and said he wouldn't want him as a teammate.
"You don't want a player like that. The stuff that he stands for and the type of player he is, that's not Houston Texan-worthy," Schaub said, via ESPN.com. "That's not what we're about as a football team, as individuals, collectively as a group, we're not that type of person."
Late in the first quarter, Suh was taken down right in front of Schaub who had just launched a deep pass. Suh's left foot connected with Schaub's groin on his way down, sending him to the turf. No penalty was called but a league executive told USA Today over the weekend that the NFL would review the incident on Monday. After reviewing the play, the NFL opted not to suspend Suh, per Greg Aiello.
While this was the first time Schaub has opened up about the play, Suh has been silent.
According to the Associated Press, Suh avoided reporters after the loss. ProFootballTalk noted that on Saturday when he hosted an #AskSuh session on Twitter, he didn't answer any of the questions about the incident.
It was last Thanksgiving when Suh stomped on Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith and was ejected. He was later suspended for two games.
