Last week, we posted an NFL Film’s clip of Richard Sherman during the Seahawks vs Redskins game that showed, among other things, Sherman and Trent Williams’ fight at the end of the game. This week, NFL Films has caught another interesting exchange on film. During the Denver Broncos vs Baltimore Ravens game last weekend, Ravens Terrell Suggs and Broncos defensive tackle Justin Bannan had a few words for one another. Enough was said that Bannan got in the face of Suggs.
The interesting part is NFL Film again caught all of this on film.
Instead of throwing a flag, Terrell Suggs told referee Bill Vinovich that him and Bannan were friends and Vinovich decided not to throw a flag.
ProFootballTalk.com explains what happened between the pair:
As the Ravens’ defense was walking off the field and the Broncos’ defense was walking on the field following a turnover, Suggs ran up to Bannan from behind and started yelling at him.
“I’ll fight you, a–hole,” Suggs said with a laugh.
Bannan turned around and stuck his finger in Suggs’ face before the players were quickly separated. As referee Bill Vinovich approached, perhaps to throw a penalty flag on Suggs, Suggs explained that he was just joking around.
“That’s my friend,” Suggs said.
“We don’t know that,” Vinovich responded.
After watching the video, it does seem as though the two were joking or are friends.
However, I think the best part comes when Suggs asks the Denver crowd if, after a Manning interception, they would have rather had Tebow at quarterback.
