Suggs, Ward fueling the Ravens-Steelers fire

There's no need to tell anyone, after the events thus far in the week, that the Jets-Patriots game is going to be heated. But let's not forget about this little Steelers-Ravens rivalry either.

After all, both AFC North teams really, really, really don't like each other. Need proof? How about Terrell Suggs' shirt before Wednesday's practice in Baltimore, which said "Hey, Pittsburgh" right above a giant, purple Raven with its middle finger prominently extended.

You can see the shirt here, but all NSFW-ish warnings apply I suppose. Or maybe not -- even Suggs said "there ain't no message" with the shirt.

"Do I seem worried? This game is going to be what it is regardless," he said. "It’s a physical dogfight, so I ain’t expecting nothing different. And this is the shirt I wore this morning. This is just the shirt I chose."

Now, if he thinks there's no message, he's insane. There's an obvious message and it's quite clear (it's just a visual cue instead of an Antonio Cromartie-style audio number): the Ravens don't like the Steelers.

Good news, though, because the Steelers don't like the Ravens either. Just ask Hines Ward.

"Baltimore is the best place to play," Ward told the Sun this week, sitting in front of his locker after practice. "To me, that's the best road game. I've always cherished it my whole career. It's pure hatred."

Ward also said that when he does something good it "irks the crap out of" Ravens fans and he gets people "flipping the bird" at him. Which, apparently, means Suggs is right on target with his shirt.

Suggs - until you actually win simething, shut the hell up.  The history speaks for itself as to who the dominant team is...and what these stats don't tell you is that Ben Roethlisberger uis 6-0 all time at home against the Ravens...
