ALLEN PARK, Mich. Nick Perry Womens Jersey . —Forget that
two-game suspension last year for his Thanksgiving stomp. Even when he was able
to play, Ndamukong Suh wasnt too thrilled with his performance. “I didnt like my
approach, now that I look back on that particular season—especially compared
to my rookie season,” Suh said. “Theres really some foundational things in my
game I need to focus on.” Suh took the NFL a bit by storm as a rookie in 2010,
finishing the season with 10 sacks and anchoring a Detroit defensive line that
looked like it had the potential to be among the leagues best. Last year, he had
only four sacks, and although he was still a handful for opposing blockers, he
made as much news for his style of play as for his production. Suh requested a
meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss his play after hed drawn
several penalties and fines. Then on Thanksgiving, he stomped at Green Bay
offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith and was suspended for two games. Now Suh
is talking about a renewed focus. The 25-year-old defensive tackle is still one
of the games most recognizable young stars, and hes eager to bounce back with a
big season. “Accountability is making sure youre prepared and whatever you have
to do to make sure youre a contributing factor to this team. Everybodys a
professional or else you wouldnt be on this team, and you need to do whatevers
extra to get you to that same level,” Suh said. “My attention to detail has
increased, and I think that will be an added factor to help me be the player
that I want to be.” Suh didnt give too many details on what, specifically, hes
done to prepare for this season. He stayed out of the spotlight for much of the
off-season, and that may have been a good thing. Several teammates had run-ins
with law enforcement. Suh is being sued for just more than $1 million by a woman
who claims she was injured in a December car crash in Oregon involving the
defensive lineman. But he says hes excited to be at training camp and ready to
turn his attention to football. “Is good good enough? No, not at all,” he said.
“I would hope to be great.” Detroits defence fell apart at the end of last
season, allowing 550 yards to Green Bay in the regular-season finale and 626 to
New Orleans in a playoff loss to the Saints. The secondary remains an issue, but
the Lions can use more from their men up front, and Suh wants to be a game
changer. “Suh is Suh,” linebacker Stephen Tulloch said. “Suh is going to be
there. You know what to expect out of Suh. Hes going to give his all every day,
come to work. He might not say much, but when hes out there on the field he
definitely gets it done.” Coach Jim Schwartz didnt talk much about Suh
specifically Sunday, but he indicated the beginning of the season can be a fresh
start for any player. “Hes always been a hard worker and hes done that in camp
now. Everybody, whether last year was good or bad or mediocre—doesnt matter
this year,” Schwartz said. “Everybodys out to compete, to work, to do a good job
this year.” To be fair, Suh was still a force at times last season. Its just
that he wasnt disrupting the opposing offence as consistently as he did when he
was a rookie. Hes hoping to be more effective in the months to come. “I dont
think I was somebody that was getting rolled up and pushed 50 yards out of
bounds. ... But I hold myself to a higher standard,” Suh said. “I expect more
from myself.” NOTES: Schwartz said injuries to OL Jeff Backus (thumb) and RB
Mikel Leshoure (hamstring) should not be long-term problems. ... WR Ryan Broyles
and OL Jonathan Scott were able to practice Sunday after being on the
non-football injury list. Jarrett Bush Jersey . Numbers Game looks at

apparently hampered him all year.HELSINKI, Finland—Canadian captain Ryan
Getzlaf was flabbergasted after being linked to an incident at a Helsinki bar by
Finnish media outlets. MTV3, the host broadcaster at the IIHF World Hockey
Championship, reported that Getzlaf, Corey Perry and a couple other teammates
were involved in an argument at a nightclub following a 5-4 overtime loss to the
United States on Saturday night. Other news outlets ran with the story as well.
But Getzlaf said the reports were filled with inaccuracies. “Where that story
came from, I dont know,” he said after a 7-2 victory over France on Monday. “It
was way out of proportion. Way, way overblown. It was nothing like what was
reported.” He acknowledged that the players were at the Circus bar for a couple
drinks and got approached by a local. “Somebody tried to start an argument at
the door. I said No! No! No!” Getzlaf explained. “It wasnt much more than that.
There were never any punches thrown. Nothing, no incident.” Finnish media
outletts have written other stories about players at the tournament going out on
the town, including one about the American team. Brett Favre Packers Jersey. . The Canadian
players havent been given a curfew for the event—“Were grown men,” said
Getzlaf—but will certainly be more careful after this incident. The team has
played three round robin games and will spend another two weeks in Helsinki if
it advances to the medal round. “We addressed it with the guys when we heard
about this,” said Brad Pascall, Hockey Canadas vice-president of hockey
operations. “We just talked about the importance of preparation and (the fact)
theres a lot of games in a short period of time coming up. “Id like to think its
behind us.” As far as coach Brent Sutter was concerned, the performance Getzlaf
and Perry had against France put the whole thing to bed. “Theres nothing to it,”
said Sutter. “They were ready to play today like the professionals they are.
They were both solid today.” ’ ’ ’
