I became an even bigger Terrell Suggs fan in 2011. The guy seems to be the glue that has held the defense together through Ray Lewis and Haloti Ngata’s injuries, has been wreaking havoc in backfields all season long and though sometimes he can be loud, I’ve never disagreed with his opinions.
During the Ravens road struggles this season, Suggs expressed his opinions on the Ravens offense. When Baltimore got embarrassed in Jacksonville, Suggs told the media that he was “baffled” by Cam Cameron’s play calling. “It baffles me that Ray Rice only had six carries,” he told Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times.
Suggs continued to show his support of Rice and the running game throughout the season and as Baltimore walked off the field in Cincinnati as the AFC North Champions, T-Sizzle again told the media that he supports the ground attack.
“I’ve always been a big Ray Rice and offensive line fan,” Suggs told Wilson. I strongly believe in our running game, and I strongly believe in our offensive line being in the trenches with us. When they’re good, we’re great.” Rice rushed for 191 yards and two touchdowns in 24 carries against the Bengals and proved Suggs’ theory is true.
“When our offensive line dominates and Ray is running behind them, a lot of good things happen as you can all clearly see throughout the course of our season. When our offensive line is playing great and Ray’s running the ball, we’re winning games.”
I couldn’t agree more and I hope that the Ravens stick with the ground game against whoever their opponent is on January 15.
