Ex-Lion Al "Bubba" Baker says he has a man crush on Ndamukong Suh

For those that can remember back to the late 1970's and early 80's, the Detroit Lions had a pretty good defensive line. Heade by Doug English and the headliner Al "Bubba" Baker, the Lions front four was known as the 'Silver Rush'.

Baker made a special appearance to the Lions training camp and says that this Lions defensive line could be better than the 'Silver Rush' edition. he also admitted to having a man crush on defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.   

“I think we all have seen what they’ve assembled here, and the front that they’re in, they have an opportunity to do something,” Baker said. “I think these guys have the ability to break any record we ever had as the Silver Rush — by far.”

"I have to admit I have a man crush on Ndamukong Suh. I've already told my wife," Baker said. "If I had a body like that, I'd still be playing.

"There's no one single human being that can block Suh. He doesn't exist. King Kong, but he's retired."

Baker is the latest defensive lineman to praise Suh and the way he plays the game. Former Pittsburgh Steeler great mean Joe Greene also had some positive words about Suh and both feel the league should stop trying to rein him in so much.
