Suggs should do what is best long term. But if he can play, then he should.

You saw so many people chiming in with "DON'T PLAY SIZZLE" when he first got hurt. Why not? If he is healthy and can play, he should. Only if it indeed does risk long term damage should he sit out.

T Sizzle will not play Sunday. Hopefully he'll be available for the Broncos game.

if si55le is cleared to play, then he should. but cam-moron needs to destroy that brick wall of a brain and get a REAL-WORKING BRAIN!!! the D CANNOT afford to be on the field 80-90% of the time! when those guys get fatigued, the risk of injury goes up! that fool who calls himself an OC needs to stop ordering ihop playbooks for once in his miserable career and let the D get significant time to rest!

If Suggs plays it should be at his own risk.

these next 4 Games are a tough stretch ,looking back at the 2000 season where we barely got in and won the SB ,yes players were younger we had more exp.corners However i think its very important to limit some of the players playing time,and let me explain,When Playoff time does arrive Everybody and i mean every Playoff Team will Have a major injury and will have injuries ,so if we use rotations and Rest guys now ,we will have a better advantage then the teams who is risking there players to get banged up over that 4 week course in time,However only way this works out is if the offense can make it happen ,if i were the Coach i would go to Cameron now and say this is where you need to step it up you have the best FB and RB in the Game use them ,because next year you may be out of a Job ,Really doesn't make any difference who says it someone needs to Harbaugh? ,Flacco ? anyone Because when your not doing your Job and continuously calling in plays that are 3 and outs and playing for field position or whatever you want to call what hes doing ,stars call out players all the time as do coaches to wake them up ,im a Kobe fan and Lakers Fan and you think he would sit back and watch i don't think so,you think all the past great QB's watched and said nothing i dont think so in the 80's if you were not calling the right plays you were gone.

Redskins fans always think they are going to the SB, while Ravens keep their opinions realistic always qualifying their opponents strengths and weaknesses into their statements. Even though we still are 9-3, we're never satisfied and usually are always looking ahead instead of living in the moment.

I do credit the true skins nation who stay strong in their tough times, but that's only a small portion of that fan base.

And I'm still trying to figure out why Redskins fans hate us... must be because we always beat em. I asked one of my friends and she told me the Redskins were the original DMV team and we just want a franchise like theirs. I told her that it was actually the opposite, why would we want to be a losing franchise, plus they have Josh Wilson and Chris Chester as starters, former Ravens.

Redskins fans are brash.

Suggs know his body better than anyone, he'll do what's right for both himself and the team. The guy is just amazing.

In my opinion, you don't pressure RGIII. Beating him is all about how well your linebackers play. The Redskins run the ball often, and when they do throw, they generally throw quick screens or slants. If you are bringing constant pressure on RGIII, it works to his benefit.

I think Ellerbe is the key to winning this game. If he doesn't play, as we saw against Pittsburgh, we struggle covering TEs and the middle of the field.

Suggs should sit and rest up some for Denver. He will be much more needed as a pass rusher against the immobile Mannings than he will against RGIII.

Also, say what you will about the "accuracy" of RGIII, but I've pretty much not seen him make a tight coverage throw in the NFL yet. The Redskins are smart with their play calling, and they don't make him make difficult throws, particularly to the sidelines.

Linebacker containment is the key. If we set the edge, we can stop their offense.

I really think that we need to use Rice in the passing game to beat the Redskins. We match their quick slants and screens with some of our own. Boldin had a good game until the push-off PI penalty, then he lost focus. Smith should never been sent on all those deep patterns. The shorter ones worked well in the Chargers game. Let's get Flacco focused on 5 to 10 yard passes. Dink and dunk to the first down marker. Move the chains and keep the opponents off the field. Run the ball with a lead to eat up clock. These are the fundamentals that lead to victory.

Skins fans are better at singing the fight song, did you hear them all on monday night? we have the ooooooOHOHOHOOOOOOOOOOOO but singing the team song 71,000 would be awesome for once. instead of just saying the FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT Part.

i hope we win i need a good Bar Trump card to use.

Suggs do what best for you. Get well. This has been a trying year for our defense. The offense seriously has to step up from now on. Its bad because normally that should happen anyways but for our team it is a stretch. Its discomforting to never know when your offense is gonna show up after all of these years. But those guys gotta do their part from now on. Our D has literally given their blood, sweat, and tears and not the effects are showing.

"His QBR against the four-man rush is 74.1, and his QBR against the blitz is 98.4" - This is an amazing stat for anybody let alone a rookie. Im truly impressed by this young man. But still we really have to watch this guy. He cant have a field day on us.

There is NO long term for Suggs , He's a 10 year man now. Its now or never for him. His career is almost over.
