Aaron Donald talks Tom Brady, Studying John Randle & Playing with Ndamukong Suh
Reigning defensive player of the year Aaron Donald answered numerous questions from the Media before the Rams and Patriots face off in Super Bowl 53.
During the media scrum, Donald talks about how Tom Brady is a great player and someone that have to get after on the defensive side of the ball. Donald also talked about how as a rookie, he studied Minnesota Viking and Seattle Seahawks’ great John Randle and Houston Oiler and Seattle Seahawks’ great Warren Moon; both individuals are Pro Football Hall of Fame talents. These are also individuals that Donald suggested that his young players on both sides of the ball study as well.
Donald also talked about how they have to make an emphasis on trying to stop the Patriots run game since they were very active running the ball throughout this postseason. The first opportunity to stop the quarterback, but we have to stop the run.
This is Ndamukong Suh first season in Los Angeles, and he was relatively quiet in regards to the on the field antics, and production during the season for that matter, that he was known for in Detroit and Miami. He has been the model citizen this year alongside Aaron Donald. Donald was asked what it was like to play with Suh this season?
“I think one of the best things we do together is we communicate well. If he sees something on the sideline when we come out we are talking to each other and If I see something we are talking to each other. So, having that non-stop communication everybody is getting on the same page and making sure we put each other in a position to have success. So, we can make that big play,” said Donald.
We’ll see how well both Donald and Suh fair against Brady and the Patriots in Super Bowl LIII.
