Here are some news and notes from Ravens today:
Here is Rex’s comments on C-Mac situation:
-Rex Ryan talked about how Jim Leonhard was in the game more than Ed Reed because of a certain package that the they had practiced more in it, but no one talked about it. Rex said it is his responsibility to get the job done no matter who is out there.
– As to who decides who starts on defense, Rex Ryan made is very clear, “it is my call, always on defense.”
-Rex mentioned that he owes it to this football team to do what they think is best with match ups, even if that means taking out Ray Lewis.
On his relationship with Rob Ryan:
– ” We were really close, we still are very close. With dad’s profession, I always had my best friend with me when we moved.”
-“you look forward to seeing him, maybe going out to eat or something. You have to feel bad for someone, might as well feel bad for him. It is all about the win, hopefully our team will come out on top.”
-The defensive guys have said that the guy to getting JaMarcus Russell is to wrapping him up and wait for help to come.
On Terrell Suggs comments on the radio:
– ” I am getting it all second hand, I do not know all the particulars on it, so I would rather not comment right now til I hear it myself.”
On Mike Singletary getting hired in San Fransico:
“I am excited for Mike Singletary to get that opportunity, I think he will do a tremendous job.He probably gives the best speeches I have ever heard a guy give. I think the lost a heck of coach in Mike Nolan, I hate to see one of my friends lose a job when the season is not even over. I think that is kind of ridiculous, it is what it is. I guess adversity to some comes opportunity for others, hopefully Mike Singletary will do a good job in stay in that position, but i sure feel for Mike Nolan.”
-Cam Cameron mentioned that Willis McGahee took 30 cc’s off of his knee before the Miami game and having the game he did was impressive. Cameron feels like McGahee is getting healthier and that will benefit the offense.
