If there’s one guy that never shies from controversy it’s Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs. Last week he was baffled by the offensive game plan, much like the rest of city, this week he’s already taking shots at Pittsburgh.
“I look forward to going into Heinz Field as the bad guy,” Suggs told Aaron Wilson after coming off the field on Sunday. Yeah, you read that right. Minutes after the Ravens defeated the Cardinals 30-27 at M&T Bank Stadium, Suggs was already preparing for the Steelers and a week of jawing back and forth between the two AFC North Rivals.
Though the Ravens are 6-7 against Pittsburgh in Suggs’ nine years in the league, his personal performances against the Steelers are outstanding. Suggs has recorded 13.5 sacks, 19 tackles and 8 assists on tackles against the Steelers, the highest against any opponent. In week one, he recorded three sacks and five tackles in the Ravens 35-7 pounding of the Steelers.
If there’s one guy that can back up the smack talk, it’s T-Sizzle. I’m fine with him being the bad guy.
