Did Ozzie Newsome actually refer to Suggs as "Sizzle"?

Good !!! We need emotional players. He is only going to get better, and when he peaks it will bring a return of the defense of 2000 that no one could handle.

He wants to Arizona then let his ass. 5 sacks?

I'd rather have Barnes or Burgess in his position

Weren't you, Preston, the idiot writer who speculated last year that contract negotiations were distracting him? And now Suggs says they didn't. Hmmm...looks like you made yet ANOTHER blanket statement without any quotes to support your statement, when you claimed that not having a long-term deal kept Suggs from performing at his best. Typical Preston. You are awful...why "The Sun" continues to employ your moronic ass is something only God knows.

I think we're seeing the 'playoff caliber' team that we have always had being awakened, like some slumbering giant. I am truly happy Cam gets to BUILD an offense,'cuz we've probably missed at least 3 playoff appearances (B**** B******) Underachievers in the AFC North? "Quoth the Raven,'Nevermore'."

Suggs is a great player that has alot of games ahead if he stays healthy. I hope they can get him locked in to a seven year deal at a reasonable price.

I can't think of a single player on this team who is more valuable than two first round picks.

Come on seriously? Have you been under a rock? Suggs has always stated he wants to be a Raven for life. Perhaps you missed the fact that when they quoted him as saying he wants to play in Arizona they left out the part where he said if things don't work out in Baltimore. Yes, his sacks were down but so was Trevor Pryce and our conerbacks for most of the year and he still set a personal best with 95 tackles. Suggs is a very important part of our teams future.
