READING TIME 2 MINUTES: 49er Calls Suggs a [Bleeping] Loser

Suggs with The Lombardi

While being interviewed on a San Francisco based radio station, Terrell Suggs during a series of questions about Super Bowl XLVII finally conceded that he didn’t think much of 49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis.

Suggs insinuated that Davis was a “fake tough guy.” Davis responded by calling Suggs a “f—ing loser” on his Twitter feed. You can check it out HERE.

Ed Reed was interviewed by NFLN’s Rich Eisen recently, during which the Ravens’ All-World safety said that he is a “Raven for life.”

We can only hope.

But judging from Reed’s body language and the way he answered questions, there seems to be some doubt about his “return-ability” to Baltimore.

One of the issues in dealing with Reed is that he has no agent – he’s representing himself, although rumors have surfaced that he’s considering one. During contract discussions teams have no choice to be candid about the strengths AND weaknesses of a player. This is where it could get dicey.

Ed is a prideful and rather sensitive man and without the luxury of having a filter (in the form of an agent) it’s easy to see how discussions could shut down abruptly. Perhaps the best thing the Ravens can do is to encourage Reed to visit with other teams to help set his market value much like they did with Ray Lewis when faced with similar circumstances.

Another former Miami Hurricane who is likely to hit the open market is left tackle Bryant McKinnie. It’s doubtful that the Ravens will get Joe Flacco done until the final moments prior to the free agent period opening and if players wait that long it’s the prudent thing for them to see what the market will bear for their services.

McKinnie’s return to the lineup clearly had a positive effect on the performance of the Ravens’ offensive front and the mammoth tackle is largely credited for that. But for my money, the REAL boost in performance came at left guard.

Kelechi Osemele was outstanding at the position previously manned by Jah Reid, Bobbie Williams and Ramon Harewood, so much so that he will be in the mix for Pro Bowl consideration going forward if he stays at the position.

Osemele’s play coupled with the slight upgrade in performance at left and right tackle with McKinnie’s insertion and Oher’s flip to the right helped pave the way to a markedly improved Joe Flacco during the stretch run and through Super Bowl XLVII.
