Making an appearance on KNBR 680-AM largely to promote “The Coalition,” a movie he co-wrote, Suggs was asked about comments made by teammate Cary Williams following the Ravens’ 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3. Williams, a starting cornerback who was involved in a post-whistle scrum during the Super Bowl that led to him pushing a game official, called the 49ers “fake tough guys” and “pretenders” in the locker room after the game.

Suggs was then asked if he believed that the 49ers’ offensive line had some fake tough guys.
“They’ve got one fake tough guy,” Suggs said.
Pressed further, Suggs praised San Francisco starting left tackle Joe Staley and starting left guard Mike Iupati. He was then asked about starting right guard Alex Boone, who Suggs called “solid.”
When told that leaves Davis and center Jonathan Goodwin, Suggs said, “Goodwin is pretty good.”
The comments led to Davis, a first-round pick in the 2010 draft who was once a college teammate of Ravens running back Ray Rice at Rutgers, going on the offensive on Suggs on his Twitter account, @AnthonyDavis76.
“We went head to head in the Super Bowl. He made no plays,” Davis tweeted before getting increasingly more personal.
“Another case of a cornball wit money..he was a loser before he had the nfl backing him. You can tell by his moves. Thirsty for any hype. Lol,” Davis wrote.
He also called Suggs a “[expletive] puppet” and taunted him to “do a dance for us Suggs.”
He then tweeted, “why they hatin' on a youngin. he 30 yrs old I’m on his mind? lol [expletive] loser.”
Suggs has yet to respond on his Twitter feed. The former NFL Defensive Player of the Year, who played parts of the season while recovering from a partially torn Achilles and a torn biceps, came alive in the playoffs, but he had a quiet Super Bowl with two total tackles.
However, he had one of the best games of his career against the 49ers during the 2011-12 season, victimizing Davis, then a rookie, and the San Francisco offensive line for three sacks and a forced fumble.
