The Baltimore Ravens outlook for 2012 went from bad to worse on Thursday when the team learned that elite pass-rusher Terrell Suggs would miss significant time next season.
General manager Ozzie Newsome has already seen talented players like Ben Grubbs, Cory Redding and Jarret Johnson leave this offseason.
Now, with Suggs gone, I can’t see the Ravens making the playoffs.

While the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens can’t seem to get their act together this offseason, the Cincinnati Bengals are emerging as a surprise favorite in the 2012 AFC North.
After signing BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Travelle Wharton and Terrence Newman, the team has added a solid, veteran presence to their already talented, young lineup.
Despite the losses of Keith Rivers and Cedric Benson, the team looks rather set to eclipse ten wins come next season.
