Suh says they eliminated Edelman

Ssanders9816 : 2/4/2019 9:49 am
“In my opinion, just thinking back, we eliminated him, even though he got yardages.”

He never seemed like the sharpest tool in the shed.
Did he really say that?  
figgy2989 : 2/4/2019 9:51 am : link
I guess he forgot how many catches he had for first downs. You know the receptions which kept his D on the field.
I always remember people talking about it

when I was a kid, but I guess February 3, 2019, was "Opposite Day."
LOL..

yardages....
Well that is why the Rams won

Great analysis by Suh.
And/or ...

Hey Ndamukong. I don't think "eliminated" means what you think it means.
Whatever helps him get through the offseason, I guess

Dumb thing to say  
MetsAreBack : 2/4/2019 10:38 am : link
but the defense held Brady and co. to 13 points. It did its job.

Goff cost his team the game.
Umm  
mdthedream : 2/4/2019 11:10 am : link
they scored only 13 points so they kind of did. If the offense did its job they would have won.

Goff was horrible. In the fourth quarter he unravelled. He almost cost them the three points they did get when he stupidly took that sack on third down, pushing the FG to 53 yards. Looked to me like he got frustrated when Cooks dropped that ball and there was no flag. He'd been praying on the sideline all night so on the next play he hastily decided to throw up an ill advised prayer that was intercepted. Gurley was no help either, but Goff lost them the game.
Ndamukong Duh

If Suh had said the D did what they wanted, or played a good game, I'd  
PatersonPlank : 2/4/2019 12:35 pm : link
agree. But i don't agree they shut down Edelman because they didn't. Hell I'd even agree with him if he said their gameplan was to let Edelman get his catches as long as they kept him in front of them. Fine. But saying the shut down Edelman makes no sense.
Edleman..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 2/4/2019 12:37 pm : link
had over 100 yardages didn't he?
Patriots scored 13.  
x meadowlander : 2/4/2019 12:42 pm : link
Lots of ball control, and yes, Edelman had a great day.

Rams defenders can be very proud of the day they had.

A shame it was all for naught.
Mr. 2 tackles in the SB Suh?  
Eman11 : 2/4/2019 12:43 pm : link
Maybe he should've done a bit more to help eliminate the Pats running game. You know, the one that rushed 32 times for an average of almost 5yds per carry and controlled the clock for practically the whole 1st half.
Suh used errible grammar.  
GiantGolfer : 2/4/2019 5:39 pm : link
The proper way to say it is yardagi.
The MVP was an illusion .... I guess.

When you bag yards.


Also good for leaves.
not sure what he meant  
Banks : 2/4/2019 11:26 pm : link
Edelman isn't a big play threat. He can beat you underneath which they allowed. Hell, they even gave up a couple of big plays too. It didn't amount to much on the scoreboard, but it kept them on the field a bit longer.
Very strange position to take  
NoGainDayne : 2/4/2019 11:31 pm : link
it's not like they gave him a token SB MVP. They would have loved, loved to give it to Brady.

He was the MVP in the game, nothing but being sour to explain that comment.
He had 100  
mdthedream : 2/5/2019 8:20 am : link
no tds and they scored only 13 points.
He moved the chains  
Doomster : 2/5/2019 10:48 am : link
to score those 13 points......

He had 10 for 141 and led them to the scoring drives that won them the SUPER BOWL. But yeah he was efffectively eliminated...
Maybe he means that they tried to shut down Edelman

On the TD drive that won them the game he had one catch for 13 yards, Gronk and Brady were much bigger on that drive. Gronk had two catches for about 50 yards. On the final field goal drive Edelman had no catches. On the first fg drive he also had only catch but it was a big one for 25 yards and it was on third and one. Not saying Suh is right, just saying when it came down to crunch time, it wasn't Edelman who did the damage on the scoring drives it was Michel and Gronk.
I would add I think you could easily make the argument  
Essex : 2/5/2019 12:40 pm : link
Michel was the most valuable player. I don't mind that they gave it to Edelman, but Michel was awesome on that last drive to close out the game with a fg, and overall he had 18 carries for 94 yards and a TD with a 5.2 YPC.
