Terrell Suggs backs up his Steeler trash talk

Earlier this week, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs wore a shirt that showcased a raven giving the middT. Suggs (US Presswire)le finger to Pittsburgh. Such brash displays would normally be off-putting, but Suggs’ consistent outspokenness and twists of humor have earned him somewhat of a Charles Barkley-like reputation with the media. The man has a considerably longer leash than someone like, say, Antonio Cromartie.

A reason for that longer leash is that Suggs almost always walks his talk – and particularly against the Steelers. He was an absolute beast when the two teams met on Sunday night in early December, recording four tackles, 1.5 sacks, two tackles for a loss and countless pressures on Ben Roethlisberger.

Such performances against Baltimore’s archrival have become routine for the eight-year pro. Jamison Heatley of the Baltimore Sun points out:

In 17 career games against Pittsburgh (including playoffs), (Suggs) has 78 tackles, 12 ½ sacks, five passes defensed and one forced fumble. He's been even more disruptive recently with 10 sacks in the past 10 meetings.

The only time Suggs has collided with the Steelers in the postseason proved his toughness and his desire to play Pittsburgh. Leading up to the 2008 AFC championship game, he didn't practice all week because of a shoulder injury and wore a sling. Then, playing with one arm, he sacked Roethlisberger twice.

Saturday afternoon, Suggs’ level of dominance may be the difference between an AFC Championship appearances or an earlier-than-hoped-for offseason for the Ravens.

Just curious, Mr. Suggs....how's that t-shirt working out for you?  I bet it's easy to pack for the flight back home.
