The Daily Shoutout: Turmoil in Baltimore

Posted on: October 25, 2011 10:55 am
 
OPENING HIT: The Ravens organization has always been one of the better run, classiest organizations in all of sports. No question. The GM is classy, the coach is solid and the players are pros. But the Ravens have also often been mouthy. It has long been one of the chattiest locker rooms in the league. Its players are outspoken. They'll talk about anything, say anything. Sometimes that's good and in the case of Terrell Suggs, it can be bad.

After that putrid offensive performance against Jacksonville, Suggs went off on the team's play calling. This is a defensive player publicly ripping the offensive coordinator. This is not good. This is not great. And while the Ravens will try to downplay Suggs' words or pull the "out of context" card this is a huge deal. Because you know Suggs is likely saying things the offensive players want to say but won't. After an abysmal game like that, combined with what Suggs stated, this is a true crisis for a Baltimore team that has Super Bowl potential.

This is always the risk of having strong willed players like the Ravens do particularly on defense. They will sometimes say things publicly that should probably remain in-house.

It will be interesting to see how John Harbaugh handles this crisis. And it is a crisis no matter what the Ravens will try to say.

And they'll say something because the Ravens can't help it. They love to chat.

The Ravens are a joke. They employ thugs like Suggs and Ray Ray. Rice looked so scared last night, and liek I have said on here a thosuand times - Hite Fluke-O once and he will be running like the baby he is. Ravens are bad, uni's are bad, and Jags are bad. What a great game. Watching Ray and their whining coach Hardlyhasballs lose is like watching the Steelers win. I hate Ravens fans, I hate the Ravens. And last night you looked like a girls tennis team out there. Ray Lewis just jumped on another pile and claimed to make a tackle. Gutless turd is what Ray Ray is.

Heels618-

You are spot on!  Suggs had the sack to say what we can all see on our television sets...Cam Cameron is the worst Offensive Coordinator in the league.  The only thing worse than Cameron's playcalling/design, is the execution of the offensive line. Michael Oher just got cut from my middle school flag team...

Suggs should play for the Jets. A great player with a big mouth that has never won a thing in his life just like the Jets players and their head coach.

Wasn't it something like 41 pass plays and 13 run plays?  A RB like Ray Rice, should definitely be given the ball much more than that.  Horrible play calling.

What's the big freakin' deal? Sugg's is saying what the whole team want's to say. The whole freakin' world saw how bad the Ravens offense was last night - Ray Rice barely had any touches, Flacco was just plain awful, and the game plan/execution was awful. It almost seemed like the Ravens thought they could just show up, call a few plays, score a couple of td's, and then go home with a victory. I don't buy that the Ravens are the best the AFC has to offer, great defense as always, but the offense lacks explosive playmakers.

It seemed to have worked for the Jets.
