Ed Reed: Ravens will miss the fear Terrell Suggs puts in QBs

Ed Reed says the Achilles injury suffered by teammate Terrell Suggs will have far-reaching ramifications in Baltimore, including the way opposing quarterbacks think about facing the Ravens.

He’s definitely going to be missed,” Reed said on 105.7 The Fan, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “We know what Terrell Suggs brings to the table, the fear that he puts in quarterbacks’ heads. So he’s definitely going to be missed. . . . Knowing that Terrell was coming off the edge at times . . . you knew that ball is going to come out faster.”

Still, Reed believes the Ravens have the depth — and the mindset — to replace Suggs, with players who will be ready to fill the void created by Suggs.

“It definitely takes a team to win, so no one guy is more important than the team,” Reed said. “Guys know they have to step up and it’s going to take two people to replace a Terrell Suggs.”

Reed specifically mentioned Paul Kruger, who had a career-high 5.5 sacks last season, as a player who will step up in Suggs’ absence. Kruger will have big shoes to fill in putting fear into opposing quarterbacks the way Suggs does.

    If you are going to blow an Achilles I guess its better now than during the season. Gives the Ravens the entire off-season and pre-season to get someone ready.

    Still it’ll hurt not to have t-sizzle out there. Going to need Reed to put his pending contract notions away and give it all he’s got.

    Here’s hoping Kindle finally lives up to the potential.

    Paul Kruger… the younger brother of Freddy Kruger? He should be able to put fear in opposing quarterbacks. Nightmare on Paul Street haha

    Have you seen Suggs’s mouth?

    Forget Paul Kruger… They’re gonna need Freddy Krueger if they want to keep scaring QBs.

    I’m pretty sure Ben didn’t fear him. Remember a couple of years ago how he held him at bay with one hand while he got rid of the ball with the other. Ben no fear T-Fizzle.

    @zoidenflak

    You do realize on that play Suggs WAS NOT trying to sack Roethlisberger? He was trying to cause a fumble because the ravens needed a turnover to help win that game. A sack would have still ended with a probable field goal.

    Not that it matters because there are tons of times Sizzle has straight up owned the rapist…

    The only reason Suggs is so good coming off the end is because he doesn’t have the weight of any of those pesky Super Bowl rings slowing him down.
