Suggs asks Skip Bayless why he doesn’t like Flacco

OWINGS MILLS — Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs continued his running debate with ESPN personality Skip Bayless on Tuesday.

Appearing on ESPN’s First Take program, Suggs had a humorous response to this question from Bayless: "In your heart of hearts would you rather have Tim Tebow or Joe Flacco?"

Suggs’ reply: "Are you kidding me? Why don’t you like my quarterback, Skip? Is it his mustache? Is it his eyebrows? Is it because Tim Tebow is prettier? I understand you have your man crush but you can’t force that on the rest of us."

As for Flacco, who has drawn criticism locally and nationally despite the Ravens’ 12-4 record and passing for 3,610 yards and 20 touchdowns with 12 interceptions, Suggs defended his quarterback.

"We have a quarterback that fits our system," Suggs said. "I love the kid. He plays football. He’s my quarterback, I love him. I stand by him, I love him on the sideline with the ice in his veins and I just feel awesome about him."

Suggs referred to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady as "God’s nephew," adding that the Ravens prefer to use their football skills instead of sideline prayers.

As usual with Suggs, his remarks were tongue in cheek.
