THIS is the NFL!!! Only 32 Teams with 53 Men per team can play !! ANY GIVEN SUNDAY (or Thursday, Saturday & Monday)
We were 3 points away from Tenn and S*&tsburgh! We can play very well but when you play one the road like that with out a break ... something is bound to give...
Wake the hell up people ... THE RAVENS ROCK !!!! We have the D and the O now !!! WAKE UP!!!In case you missed it, no matter what until Feb 2 2014 the Baltimore Ravens are still the Super Bowl Champions! (says so right here on the Lombardi) "It is not how you play the game that matters... It is Winning The Super Bowl that counts"... Rumor Ray
Baltimore Has 9 Pro Football Championships!

I mentioned this in another thread but it's bizarre and bears repeating. On at least one of the runs that the Giants broke back to the outside for a long gainer I was amazed that no Raven was covering the outside..No one.
On the replay I saw Suggs go immediately to the spot between the OT and guard. It didn't look like he was reading the play. It looked like he had made his mind up what he was going to do before the snap. Needless to say his outside containment responsibility was severely compromised...
Just wondering what was up with that? It's pretty basic football to know who has the job of turning any outside plays back to the inside. Did he think the safety was going to cover him?

Suggs aint worth what he thinks he's worth. I'm willing to bet that if he's released, there won't be much of a dropoff .....
This team needs to stop overpaying for mediocrity...

To me, its just a typical thing that happens with Rex and his D. He allows the players to abandon their assignments in order to make big plays. A lot of time its successful, but also it is suspectible to the big play by the opposing O.

I like Suggs but to me he's a slightly better Joey Porter. Porter never did anything against Ogden, ever. I realize not a lot of people did, but it was never even close. Suggs isn't going up against Ogden's every week, even above average tackles seem to contain him.

I would tag Suggs and trade him for Boldin in a second if the Cards were interested.
I like Suggs, but he is not a super-impact player like he thinks he is.
