Take it back to 2014. Ndamukong Suh was Lions fans favorite mean defensive tackle, and nothing he ever did was dirty. T.J. Lang, on the other hand, was a loud-mouth, punk-ass whiner that played guard for the Green Bay Packers, who only talked trash about Suh because he couldn't stop him.
Oh, how times have changed.
Lang is now the hometown hero who signed with the Lions and is going to fix all the teams offensive line problems, and Suh is off with the Dolphins getting paid lots of money to lose.
Lang and Suh have never liked each other. And for good reason. Lang played against Suh when Suh had two if his most infamous plays against the Packers: stomping on Evan Dietrich-Smith on Thanksgiving, and stepping on the leg of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the final game of 2014.
Recently Lang went on the “Pardon My Take” podcast and discussed what it was like playing against Suh in Detroit.
“I hated it. I’ve never played against a more literal psychopath in my life,” Lang said. “Guy was a nutjob.”
There is more to the interview, such as Lang's prediction on how the Lions will finish this season, and the entire thing can be heard here. The Lions segment is from 20:39 to 45:37.
