HC Mike Tomlin to Patrick Queen: "You’re not a Raven until you beat the Steelers"
Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen recounted a pivotal moment from his rookie year, recalling Steelers coach Mike Tomlin aggressively shouting, "You're not a Raven. You're not supposed to be there. You're not one of them."
"I don’t care if he was joking. I don’t care if he was serious. At the end of the day I’m on your sideline and you’re telling me I’m not a Raven. That’s kind of disrespectful."- Patrick Queen, Baltimore Ravens
Queen found it "disrespectful," making subsequent matchups with the Steelers personal. Do you know who the Ravens face next? Nuff said.
But also and just in case, fellow Ravens linebacker Roquan Smith stressed the importance of beating the Steelers following Queen's reveal a few days ago.
Just last season, in a single game against the lowly Steelers, both Smith and Queen intercepted Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett, illustrating what's coming.
