I donít agree with Suggs re who he thinks should be the Ravens QB, but he has a right to voice his opinion even if itís not what Ravens fans want to hear. I hate when fans have the attitude that players should be seen, not heard.

Suggs has been doing a lot of talking out the side of his mouth lately. It's strange behavior from someone who is in negotiations for a new contract at the end of the season. It almost makes me wonder if he really wants to be a Baltimore Raven.

I hope Suggs re-signs with the Ravens, heís a talented player who would be a productive contributor to the defense for years to come.

(Notice we havenít heard a peep from #52 all season long. Now thatís player who is working hard for a new contract.)

Maybe you should start checking the Police report every week and see who is on the weekly list? Lord man give it a break you call the Ravens Thugs from knowledge or stupidity? It's getting old guy leave well enough alone. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and especially Suggs and that sure don't make him a thug just young and silly.

Go Ravens!!!

Keep getting better Flacco and yes bring in Smith here and there that would sure make the Defense not know what to expect.

Suggs has to go. You cannot have a racial issue on a team and we have one now. And the Sun papers should admit that Preston and Steele are racialy motivated writers.

After the loss to the Colts I posted that this is the reason why the team laid down. The difference the week leading up to the game is that the Harbugh named Flacco the starter for the year. Smith is the backup, how is he the better QB? He is basically a rookie and only started what 3 games? Since the Colts game the Malcontents have made their presence know in the clubhouse...McAlister, Ivy, McGahee, Suggs...and the list goes on and on. They wanted to show Harbaugh that they were in charge well I guess this week it changed with CMac being benched. Maybe they can join the Malcontents in Cincy.

THANK YOU. Some one speeks up and tells it like it is.
Everybody knows with a BRAIN that Troy is the better QB this year and we have a better chance winning with Troy in there. Im sure everybody will bash and cry over this news but its the truth numbers dont lie.
What numbers are you talking about? Is it about the fact that Smith only started two games last year while Flacco already has started six games under his belt. How in the hell you think the ravens have a better shot of winning with Smith in there?

As long as he backs up the H. Ward bounty I'll let this one slide.
He better just watch himself. Hines will Bart Scott him. What an idiot. I didnt like him in Forest Gump and I dont like him as a Raven.

Will the "Mighty Ravens" please beat a REAL team other than the lowly Browns, Bengals, and Dolphins.

You fans are looking stupid thinking you can make the playoffs now.

How dumb is it for Suggs to run his mouth about his rookie QB? In those two games the Ravens lost to Pitt and Tenn, the D was put in a position to win the game they blew it. For the first time in B-more it looks like we may have a young QB that can be a special talent and "mush mouth" can't help but try and screw it up. Shut up Suggs and sack the other teams QB.

Ha, what jagoff. He's just mad because his team sucks. Hines Ward plays the game like it should be played. I bet if Ward was on the Ravens, Suggs would love him.

Steele is a pure racist. He has no thought of hiding it.

Preston-never seen a racial comment from him.

Okay I've defended Suggs before but he needed to shut up here. The organization went with Flacco, Suggs is not a fuckin OC, Troy had an opportunity in preseason and yes he did get sick, but didn't really distinguish himself in the two games he played.

As for what he said about Ward, who cares Scott said the same thing last year, though it ended up not mattering since Ward didn't play in the game at the end of the season.

you can take the black man out of the ghetto but you cant take the ghetto out of the black man. do you think smiths skin color has anything to do with suggs' qb comments? anybody who says smith should start over ANYBODY has to be racially motivated. at least suggs can write for the sun when his playing days are over.

Suggs is going to want Troy to be the starter because they are good friends...im sure the relastionship he shares with Flacco is not the same that he shares with Troy. On bye weeks and preseason games when these guys hit the town D Will, Troy, Suggs, C Mac, Ray, Ed Reed all hit the clubs together.

and why is this a concern of Suggs? he should concentrate on making more sacks, something that has been missing form him of late.
