The Ravens have lost three of their last four games and stand at 3-4 heading into their bye week, a state of affairs that is not being met with a shrug of the shoulders by linebacker Terrell Suggs.
Suggs deemed himself “very concerned” with the team’s play over the last few weeks and called the bye week “time for all of us to take a good look at ourselves.” Suggs wouldn’t get into specifics beyond making it clear that every phase of the game needs work for Baltimore to get back on the winning side.
“That’s definitely something in-house,” Suggs said, via Clifton Brown of CSNBaltimore.com “I’m not going to give something out for my opponents to say, ‘Let’s see if they correct it.’ We know what we gotta fix — special teams, offense, defense. We’re at a state of emergency now.”
Sunday’s game was the fourth straight Ravens game decided by a field goal or less and many of the reasons the Ravens have lost three of those games were on display against Pittsburgh. The offense couldn’t make plays to keep drives alive, leading to punts or field goals instead of touchdowns. The defense didn’t give up touchdowns, but they weren’t able to stop the run or get off the field on third downs.
Those aren’t traits that lead to good things, which is why Suggs is sounding an alarm in Baltimore.
