Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

January 13, 2009 | Glenn Clark

I firmly believe Terrell Suggs will be ready to go Sunday; but I was a little concerned when I heard his interview with “The Junkies” on 106.7 WJFK in DC yesterday morning where he said he couldn’t even lift his arm. Yikes. He’s never missed a game; and there’s nothing to rest up for if the Ravens don’t win. He’ll be out there just as long as he’s capable of moving.

As far as Samari Rolle is concerned; I’d rather have him on the field than Frank Walker, but I don’t think he is as imperative as Suggs. He’s no longer a “shutdown” corner, just a respected veteran who is less likely to make a bad mistake.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say……..
