Darnell Dockett is a defensive lineman in his eighth NFL season, and to say the Pro Bowler knows a thing or two about what goes on in the trenches would be an understatement.

So it should come as no surprise that the vocal captain had a thought on what transpired in Detroit on Thanksgiving, when Detroit's Ndamukong Suh was thrown out of a game for stomping on Green Bay's Evan Dietrich-Smith.

Dockett tweeted multiple times to Suh Tuesday.

big fella keep ya head up, Your a good player, U don't need 2 get back at the OL like that, just keep doing it the right way!

I know the OL are full of sh** Holding, CutBlocks, tackling, all types of stuff but we as DL got to be smarter.

"Again homie I'm just keeping it real with you. From one Good DL to another just learn from your mistakes and get better! #90

This wasn't the first time Suh has done something that could be considered "dirty" on the field, and he's been suspended by the NFL because of the latest offense. Dockett's teammate Todd Heap so much as said the former Nebraska star is dirty, so it's interesting how someone else would come to his defense.

But then again, maybe that also just underscores the differences between offensive and defensive linemen, as each do all they can to gain an advantage on the field, sometimes at the expense of "fair play."
