Browns’ Ventrone says Ravens did dirty stuff, won’t say what they did

Browns safety Ray Ventrone says Thursday night’s game against the Ravens got dirty, and he blames the Ravens for that. But he won’t say what they did.

“I know that they were playing dirty on offense,” Ventrone told the Associated Press. “Watch the film, man. There was some dirty stuff going on.”

And what dirty stuff will the film reveal?

“There was just stuff that was happening after the play, during the play,” Ventrone said. “There was some unnecessary stuff that was happening to our defensive backs most specifically.”

But what kind of stuff, specifically?

“I don’t want to get into specifics just `cause I don’t want to be the guy to stir the pot,” Ventrone said. “But I’m just saying I think they were doing a lot of extracurricular stuff.”

Was the stuff dangerous?

“No one was hurt by any of the stuff,” Ventrone said.

Unless Ventrone repeating the word “stuff” was an homage to George Carlin, it would have been nice to hear him specify what “stuff” the Ravens did. Otherwise, it’s hard to take his stuff seriously.

    It’s called being physical! Maybe the Brownies would have a win if they could figure it out.

    not a gan of either team, but hate the trend of NFL players. every time a team loses the other team is playing dirty or they blame the referees. man up and play better

    Hey Ray… shut up about that kind of ‘stuff’ and win a game man.

    This is not a surprise to anyone who has watched the Ravens over the years. They are physical which is fine, but they try to intimidate more after the whistle. Karma will get them again… Cundiff’s kick goes wide right!!

    Are you trying to say the Ravens are the only team in the entire league who tries to “intimidate after the whistle”? Are you kidding me? You really think teams like the Eagles, Bears, Cowboys, Raiders, Texans, and Lions don’t talk trash after making big tackles and/or plays on the field on both sides of the ball? Why single the Ravens out here?

    So do something about it.

    As a lifelong Browns fan of over 40 years, all I can say is shut up Ray and go kick some a$$ your own self.
    It looks real pu$$y like for a guy on an 0-4 team to be crying about what the other guys are doin’.
    The Browns lack intensity on ALL sides of the ball and maybe could learn a few lessons from a team like the Ravens. Man up Dude…

    “Southpaw” , did we touch a nerve about the gentle men playing for the ravens. Being chippy is very unnecessary when you are already very physical which I respect and expect, but their is a line the ravens cross too often. I guess you are a lemming lover rather than a leader.

    “There was some unnecessary stuff that was happening to our defensive backs most specifically.”

    Like getting abused for 350+ passing yards with two 100 yard receivers (well Smith was technically 3 short of 100).

    He’s pretty much calling out Smith, Bolden, and Pitta with that comment.

    This just in, unnamed sources from every team in the league claim the Brown continually do “Loser Stuff” every week.

  11. steelersownyou says: Oct 2, 2012 10:15 AM

    Steelers always nip that “stuff” quick! You never get away wuth “stuff” against us! We’re the kngs of “stuff”

    The Ravens were whining about the Eagles being dirty, so I can’t believe they would stoop to such a level. *sarcasm*

    “Who the eff is Ray Ventrone?” -Baltimore

  14. cincat says: Oct 2, 2012 10:36 AM

    I can undrstand the reason for not being specific, cuz mor “crybaby” comments wud await. But as a fan of a team who doesnt “play dirty” but was tortuously disciplined for … hmm, Im not quite sure, I suggest GOODELL take a good look at film b4 accepting a fired employee’s word!!! Makes one wonder just how intelligent our commish is!

    How long has he been in the league? Ravens and Steelers are the 2 dirtiest teams in the league and have been for years. Tell me something I don’t know.

  16. steelers4385 says: Oct 2, 2012 11:20 AM

    Hate that team. Everything about them. Overrated defense with a overrated QB.

  17. jpb12 says: Oct 2, 2012 11:22 AM

    Have to give Ray Ventrone credit for lasting long enough in the NFL to earn a pension.

    Not a good player

  18. archetypeobscure says: Oct 2, 2012 11:23 AM

    Ventrone gets into gets into the game when someone else needs some Gatorade. Why his comments are a story is enigmatic.

    pick any game you wish and isolate a camera on Ed Reed and you will see him hit somebodys knee on every other snap without a doubt this is the dirtiest player on the dirtiest team in football. they used to be a hardnose nasty football team. now that they are old they rely on just being nasty. their philosophy is what ever we can get away with.

    Browns fan here. Whether the Ravens do sketchy “stuff” or not, Ray Ventrone needs a reality check: He is a below average, largely unknown scrub of a special teams player on an 0-4 team who, when opening his mouth to whine about an opponent, accomplishes nothing but making himself look like a whiny douche by the few people who even care enough to listen to or read it.

    I’ve seen this guy actually make some pretty spectacular tackles in the last couple years- but I’ve watched him make a fool of himself on the field as just as much or more. Ray should pipe down and just try to earn his paycheck.

    ==================================

    So he hit someone in the knee? Last I checked that was 100% legal as long as it’s not a QB in the pocket. Ed Reed is the greatest safety to ever play the game, he know’s the rules and he knows how to play.

    I sense a lot of jealousy toward the Ravens from all you haters on here. If your team (insert here)played with half the intensity you’d LOVE IT and you know it.
    This is football y’all not soccer. If you root for a team that has no desire to go out there and literally kick the other teams rear end, then it may be time to start doing so. Or you can just continue to cry on here. I am a proud Ravens fan, not only because they are from my home town, but because they are intense. I know they aren’t going to let another team smack them around. Call it dirty, call it whatever you want. I call it football. And if the league takes away the physicality of the game, then it will no longer be football.
