    Ngata injury?



    Everybody keeps commenting on a Ngata injury. I know it was suspected that his leg was injured, but is there any definitive information out there? I sure hope he did have an injury, because his
    play certainty came down towards the end of the year.

    I was told by a source with ties to Ngata that he was NOT injured.

    I think with Ngata everyone expects him to be this incredible pass rusher and he's not and he probably never will be. Folks want him to be Suh and get 10+ sacks a year.

    That's not his game. He's a run stuffer and he's probably good for maybe 4-6 sacks a season.

    It's also extremely difficult to be effective when you're doubled almost every snap.

    Agreed, I think the double teams play a big role, I was just trying to clarify this injury
    issue people were hinting about.

    wicked, your post makes a lot of sense, but with the $$$ contract he recently signed, many Ravens fans expected more out of him during crunch time. I am one of them... Bc

    My GUESS is part injury MORE to do with losing the 25 lbs in the offseason wore him down. Bet he puts it on again this offseason, not be used to playing weight hurts your game. We saw what bulking up did bad for Krugers game, it takes 2 years to get used to weight change. Ngata put the 25 back on and he won't wear down.

    This. Ngata is a run defender and pocket collapser who occupies blockers so that sack artists like Suggs are successful. Suggs owes Haloti a steak dinner or two IMO

    Take a look at Green-Ellis' TD run and tell me Ngata isn't hurt.
