We’re now just a day away from the Baltimore Ravens second meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers of the 2011 season. “Steelers Week,” as we so lovingly call it here in Baltimore, is just about over and nearly all the smack talk has come from Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs.
Suggs’ best line by far came late in the week when he told reporters, “God can have his [Roethlisberger’s] soul, but his ass belongs to me.” That should be on a t-shirt or a motivational poster. Epic.
So far in 2011 the Ravens have owned the Steelers. It was a 35-7 blood bath on the season opener that embarrassed their proud NFL franchise and Suggs was right in the middle of it. As previously pointed out, Suggs has recorded 13.5 sacks, 19 tackles and 8 assists on tackles against the Steelers, the highest against any opponent.
We’ll see if the Ravens can continue to own the Steelers this year or if the AFC North rivals will split their regular season meet ups. The countdown to kickoff is winding down as “Steelers Week” is about to conclude.
