A question for Preston

Ravens Weekend

November 09, 2007|By MIKE PRESTON

Why did players on defense like Terrell Suggs and Ray Lewis continue to talk trash when the Ravens were getting their tails handed to them? Stanley

Because they're childish. Here the Ravens were getting beaten 35-0, and Suggs does a dance after sacking Ben Roethlisberger. I understand football is an emotional game. I don't mind the spikes and the end zone dances. I can even take the trash talking, especially when a team is playing well. But the Ravens were getting their butts kicked. The old-time Steelers and the announcers were joking all over them, and the Ravens kept giving them more ammunition. When you get in a fight and the other person kicks your tail, you shake his hand, shut up and go home.
