    Did anyone else catch this on NFLN tonight?

    In the "4 downs" segment on Total Access Suggs asked where his favorite city was of an opposing team. He chose Houston citing its good food and calling it a great city.

    Front office, please call this guy's agent!

    I can't see him leaving Baltimore. I'm sure he also enjoyed the beatdown on us.

    Did you also hear Rod Woodson almost guarantee that he was going to get the franchise tag put on him again?

    Baltimore will sign 2 of it's 3 free agent linebackers and it's looking like Bart Scott will walk, or hopefully fly to Houston.

    Scott & Suggs are still 3-4 linebackers. Would it be wise for the Texans to sign either of them?

    The Ravens ran a lot of different defensive formations, including the 4-3

    Anyone else remember the last time we signed a promising defensive end from the Ravens? Yikes

    Terrell Suggs doesn't have promise written all over him. He has already all-pro written all over him.

    I think he would be a no brainer. He's hard nosed, gets to the passer, plays through severe injury, and has a tough mans mentality. He has played a lot of DE also. Imagine the game plan we would have with two DEs that can stand up and are that athletic.

    I would be shocked if we got Suggs. I don't see Baltimore letting him get away.

    Of course Suggs was a 4-3 DE in college, and we almost drafted him back then which would have been a good move but a better move was to do what we did and that was to draft AJ. Recall that of course we were also a 3-4 team back then. I dunno how he'd do in the 4-3 in the NFL. They got him listed at 6'3" & 260 so he's got descent size.
    Interesting that he'd mention Houston since he's not from these parts and not an obvious alternative for him since we are 4-3 ? I dunno, maybe he knows something the rest of us don't ?

    When you are a free agent you gotta create that buzz to get your team to jump at making you the offer you want.

    i click on the new post tab & the 1st thing i see is 2 threads, 1 talking about how Peppers wouldn't mind coming here & 1 talking about how Suggs likes the houston area. Does anyone think there's something fishy going on here? Like maybe both these guys are using houston (where our defensive needs are well chronicled) against their home teams to leverage fat contracts & really have no intention of leaving the panthers / Ravens. It just seems kinda suspicious that both of these guys coming from top rated defenses have houston on their radars...

    Either that, or Mario was recruiting at the pro bowl...The man can do it all!

    I see what you are saying. We do have the money to pay these guys also.

    I like Suggs though, and he likes Houston. Get the contract going.

    The dude is a football player. He can play 4-3 LB or as a DE.

    Maybe we should start showing more 3-4 looks. But we need to start loading up on LB's.

    Let's fix what we're doing now before we start adding new pages to the playbook.

    He played 4-3 DE in college and holds the NCAA single season record for sacks. He plays 3-4 OLB & 4-3 DE in the Ravens defense and he could play DE for us opposite Mario. He would play the left-side while Mario plays the right-side. I would love for us to get him but Baltimore is not stupid, they will not let him get away easy. They will sign a deal or franchise him. He's more valuable today than either Lewis or Scott.

    I only say left-side because he is much smaller than Mario so he could play weakside while Mario lines up on the LT and probably a TE.

    Terrell Suggs could most definately play DE in our system. Coach Kollar is used to having smallish DEs with a high motor. Suggs would look great opposite Mario and the two of them would be a matchup nightmare for opposing teams.

    It would pretty much have to make our 1st round DTs productive with thoe two monsters on the edge.
