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.

We showed you yesterday the group of Baltimore Ravens fans that created a parody to ‘Call Me Maybe,’ ‘Bring on Brady.’This person above, James Long Jr., showed off his support for the Ravens and Ray Lewis by shaving his head. He tweeted out the photo and included the message, “Ray Lewis, thanks for all you’ve done for Baltimore, this is for you Ray.”The guy gets an...
Ray Lewis sure doesn't look the part of an aging linebacker on the brink of retirement.
After being sidelined for 12 weeks with a torn right triceps, Lewis reclaimed his post in the middle of the Baltimore defense two weeks ago and led the Ravens with 13 tackles in a 24-9 playoff win over Indianapolis.
As an encore, Lewis had a team-high 17 tackles last week in a victory over...
We have all been planning for Ray Lewis to play in his last game for the last few weeks, maybe we should stop? People in the Boston are pretty confident that the New England Patriots will be able to do what the Broncos and Colts failed to do in previous weeks, and end the career of the Baltimore Ravens legendary linebacker. They are so confident that they are counting down the days...
While the Ravens are a 9 point underdog against the Patriots there is hope in a group of fans that the team can pull off an upset and head to the Super Bowl. The trio performed a parody of Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call me maybe’ singing ‘Bring on Brady.’
Hey everyone else might think we’re crazy, but we’re the Ravens so bring on Brady
Have a listen for yourself.
Earlier in the week, some intrepid individuals in the Boston area decided to put together a unique billboard that had a countdown counter for the "Ray Lewis Retirement Party".
Below is an image of said billboard and for all Baltimore Ravens fans, I say this...hopefully, it gets postponed till early February:

For the Ravens:
Out: CB Asa Jackson (thigh)
Questionable: LB Dannell Ellerbe (ankle/back), FB Vonta Leach (knee/ankle), RB Bernard Pierce (knee) and WR David Reed (thigh)
Probable: RB Anthony Allen (head), WR Anquan Boldin (shoulder), CB Chykie Brown (shoulder), DT Terrence Cody (ankle), G Gino Gradkowski (head), DT Arthur Jones (knee/thigh), LB Ray Lewis (triceps), LB Albert McClellan...
Lights, Camera, Action! As the 49ers, Falcons, Ravens and Patriots search for a title, we'll have some sun with a few movie titles.

The Ravens are 7-point underdogs in Foxborough this Sunday at 6:30 PM EST kickoff. You'd logically think the Ravens would be "due" to beat the Pats since it's their "turn" after basically blowing the winning or tying points in the last minute of last year's championship match. But the NFL does not carry over good intent, nor does it always reward...
The image is etched into my memory. Even after Alzheimer's sets in and I forget everything else, I will still remember it. Confetti raining down onto the field, my Broncos back to back World Champions, and John Elway hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. His last act as quarterback for the Denver Broncos. Super Bowl Champion. Super Bowl MVP. Legend. Hall of Famer. In...
I’ve gone back and forth on this one. On one hand, some of the reasons I didn’t like the Patriots last week are still true. They’re still a terrible post-season spread team, going 2-7 ATS in their last 9 post-season games and 4-8 ATS all-time as favorites of more than 4 in the post-season. Last year, they were favored by a similar amount in a similar situation here against...
The Baltimore Ravens have what they wanted - another shot at the New England Patriots.
The AFC championship will feature the same teams from the year before for the first time in 25 years when the Patriots play the Ravens on Sunday in Foxborough, where New England has never lost with the Super Bowl on the line.
New England (13-4) won 23-20 last year after some late dramatics. Lee...
