PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Steelers guard Ramon Foster joined “The Fan Morning Show” in his regular weekly spot on Tuesday following his team’s win over the Ravens Sunday night.

Foster talked about Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs’ controversial low hit on Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount. The hit drew an unnecessary roughness call and upset the Steelers’ locker room.

Foster felt that Suggs was being needlessly aggressive.

“That was unnecessary,” Foster said. “You know he’s going to the ground. There’s three of your other guys, three of your teammates on top of him. There’s no other place that he can go in. To say that he wasn’t aiming low, or the fact that the whistle wasn’t blown, there’s a certain point that you have to respect a guy’s livelihood, the way LeGarrette feeds his family. That’s the way we all feed our families. For you to take a low shot like that is something that, you know, you have to question a guy’s character. You’ve got to respect the game.”

Foster joins “The Fan Morning Show” every Tuesday at 8 a.m.

Michael McCrary, a member of the 2000 Ravens Super Bowl team, joined “The Norris and Davis Show” in Baltimore Tuesday. McCrary called Blount “soft” for complaining about the hit.

“I was surprised that Blount came out and said it was a cheap shot. It speaks to football today and it shows he’s soft. If Suggs wanted to hurt him, easily he could have,” McCrary said. “I’m embarrassed for Blount. It’s a disgrace for this guy to come out and complain about this hit.”

“Suggs hit him right where this guy would be least injured. He hit him in the best spot possible without injuring the guy.”
