The Baltimore Ravens looked to make it four wins in a row Monday night in Jacksonville, facing a Jaguars team that by most accounts stinks. But, no one could have seen this coming. The Ravens didn’t even get a first down until the third quarter.
You read that right. It was abysmal. They couldn’t do diddly poo on offense.
And LB Terrell Suggs noticed it. And he blames the offensive coaches for not getting Ray Rice and, even Anquan Boldin, involved more.
“They kept it simple. Jones-Drew had 30 carries. His backup (Deji Karim) had 10 or 15. It baffles me that Ray Rice only had seven carries,” Suggs said. “This (Rice) is a Pro Bowl running back we’re talking about. You’ve got to feed the horse. They fed their horse. We got to feed our horse.”
Maybe he wouldn’t be so upset if he knew that Rice actually had EIGHT carries.
“He’s a good guy. He wants the ball,” Suggs continued. “I think we should feed him. Ray Rice is a phenomenal player. You’ve got to use your phenomenal players. How many catches did Anquan (Boldin) have? We have guys who can do phenomenal things. We’ve got to get them the ball. It’s that simple.”
I can’t imagine that’s going to go over too well with the coaching staff. But, he’s good enough where there isn’t too much they can do to him.
