Sam Bradford thinks Ravens' Terrell Suggs tried to take out his knee

New, comments

The quarterback wasn't pleased with Baltimore's cheap shot.

One of the first questions Sam Bradford was asked following the Eagles' 40-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday evening was about a play that took place early in the game. If you watched the game, you know which one. Ravens veteran linebacker Terrell Suggs was flagged for roughing the passer on a play where he appeared to target Bradford's recovered knee. Here's a replay:

So did Bradford think it was intentional? Absolutely.

Suggs was also asked about the incident after the game. He didn't show any signs of remorse.

Actually, it's Suggs who needs updating on the rule. He was the one flagged on the play. The read option may expose the quarterback to contact at times, but it's only legal to contact the passer if he's in a "run posture." It's clear Bradford was not in said position, and thus it was a dirty hit.
