Ed Reed‘s return to Baltimore was filled with cheers from the crowd at M&T Bank Stadium. Fans welcomed the Houston Texans’ safety back to Charm City with “Reeeeeeeeeeeeed” chants and cheers.
Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs suggested to Reed that he had arrived trying to ruin former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis‘ return. Lewis, now an ESPN analyst, was inducted into the Ravens’ ring of honor at halftime.
“I know the guy’s a weirdo,” Reed said of Suggs. “He made a comment about me coming back trying to play this game and make interceptions, rain on Ray’s parade. … After the game he said that. He’s a — he’s a — just a guy.”
Suggs might be a “weirdo,” but at least he never criticized Joe Flacco‘s play in the postseason like Reed did. In fact, he’d do the opposite and go toe-to-toe with Skip Bayless on ESPN defending Flacco’s value to the Ravens.
Suggs also never made snide remarks about an opposing quarterback after a loss or cost the Ravens $20,000 for talking about an undisclosed injury on a radio show hosted by the director of his foundation or told reporters he “could definitely play for Bill Belichick” right before Super Bowl XLVII. No, that was Reed also.
