NFL analyst and former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Bart Scott suggested on ESPN's "Get Up" that the Baltimore Ravens will be looking to target Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow during future meetings between the two teams after Burrow finished a Week 17 win against their AFC North rival with a career-best 525 passing yards, including a 52-yard pass to running back Joe Mixon with less than two minutes remaining.
Scott played for the Ravens from 2002 to 2008, the majority of his 11-season NFL career.
"This dude beat Shane Falco and the replacement players first of all. This dude wasn't playing against the Baltimore Ravens," Scott said of Burrow on "Get Up." "And listen, I've seen this movie (in Cincinnati) before, right? ... But listen there's a culture in Baltimore. Listen, the last thing you ever want to do is poke the bear. OK, you're on a team that nobody had expectations for and you won a game. You beat them twice. Congratulations. You know what you won for your win? You won a lifetime career ass-kicking from the Baltimore Ravens. Because guess what? Our rival is the Pittsburgh Steelers. And listen - it's the way we go about it. Zac Taylor - you're involved in this too. Right? You want to sit up there, you want to run the score up. You won't get the benefit of the doubt. And listen, I guarantee you - it's called 'red dot.' And every Raven and former Raven understands what the 'red dot' means. ... You ain't no tough guys. You will not get the benefit of the doubt. I guarantee you he will not last long in this division. They're gonna make sure they become headhunters whenever they go against them. He's gonna get the rib shot. He's gonna get the neck shot. He's gonna get the tackle-his-arms, make his head bounce off the ground shot. He's getting all of that. ... It's a culture. It's a culture. They've still got killers. In Cincinnati, they've got nice athletes. They ain't got no killers. They've got no killers over there. ... Listen, the order has been sent. The order has been sent. The order has been sent. We call it 'red dot' in Baltimore, and it's on him. And it's gonna be on him for the rest of his career. He's gonna regret he ever did that. Zac Taylor - you're gonna be involved with it too. Because we're gonna get his ass fired in four years. We know what it's about."
