Stephen A. Smith, a well known ESPN Sports Analyst, recently apologized for comments made regarding victims of domestic violence. Smith was commenting on the Ray Rice suspension as well as the Ray Rice domestic violence incident which led to the suspension. He had said that victims should not provoke their attackers. The following is a video of Stephen A. Smith’s public apology.
Bernard Pierce will most likely be the starting running back for the Baltimore Ravens in the first 2 games of the season due to the Ray Rice suspension. This will give Bernard Pierce a chance to shine in the first 2 games and show us if he has what it takes to be a starter. Both Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce are coming off of disappointing performances last season and were both plagued by injuries.
Bernard showed promise in his rookie season when he averaged 4.9 yards per carry. The running game was horrible last season and the Baltimore Ravens will rely heavily on Bernard Pierce in the first 2 games to get off to a good start.
