So much for class.
Mike Tomlin used his weekly press conference to talk positively about the Pittsburgh Steelers and their playoff chances. He spoke highly of overrated quarterback Joe Flacco and even said nice things about obnoxious loudmouth Terrell Suggs. Hopefully someone other than Jonathan Scott tries to block him this time. The closest Tomlin came to uncouth trash talk was when he referred to the Ravens as “a very salty group.”
Meanwhile, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh used his press conference to show why he’s the perfect leader for a gang of thugs. “I was glad we broke his nose,” Harbaugh commented to reporters yesterday. To which the Baltimorons in attendance giggled with glee. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to find out the coach who represents the area and the reporters who live there have taken on the low-class behavior typical to that decaying hellhole of a city.
Say what you like about Brian Billick but at least he always kept the fact his team was the dirtest bunch of cheaters in the NFL to himself. It’s nice to know the Ravens are lead by a man who is not only proud of his team’s goonish behavior, he endorses it. Newsflash for you, Johnny Boy, what Haloti Ngata did ILLEGAL. He was fined $15,000 for his disgraceful actions and should have been suspended if not for the NFL’s anti-Steeler bias.
I wonder what would happen to Tomlin if the Ginger Dictator got wind of him encouraging his players to take cheap shots at their opponents?
Then again, this isn’t the first time the Ravens have publicly admitted to their criminal tendencies. Ray Lewis broke Rashard Mendenhall’s collar bone during a particularly hard-hitting contest back in 2008. Afterward, he and Suggs talked of “a bounty” being placed on certain Steelers’ heads. The NFL, under the direction of known Steeler hater Ray Anderson, conducted a sham of an “investigation” before quietly sweeping it under the rug.
Ray Lewis did make a great hit on Rashard. But then he had to jump up, thump his chest, and point at him so the rest of his defense could see Mendy was laid out. Typical punk-ass behavior from “God’s Linebacker”, although what else do we expect? Lewis would be in jail if it weren’t for football and Suggs would probably be his girlfriend. That way he could put his purty mouth to use for something other than talking trash he seldom backs up and whining when his team loses.
Gotta love the Raven Way as endorsed by their very own leader. Put bounties on the other team’s players. Try to kneecap the other team’s star linebacker on an extra point attempt (as Chris Chester tried to do to James Harrison in their last meeting). And attempt to break the nose of the quarterback who owns you.
