Terrell Suggs has never been at a loss for words, especially when a microphone or a camera is pointed in his direction.
This week he really seems to be enjoying taking on the villain role as the Baltimore Ravens get set to head into Heinz Field this Sunday Night. He had plenty of colorful comments from this Wednesday’s media day that are worth a read. He addresses several topics; from Ben Roethlisberger to being the “enemy” this Sunday, to Hines Ward’s status.
Take a look.
“We have been declared war upon. We are the enemy of the state,” Suggs said. “[Heinz Field] is my Madison Square Garden. I love playing in this stadium, I love the way the people treat me, the welcoming they give me with the No. 1’s. I love it. We’re going on the road in probably the toughest stadium to play in the NFL. We’re expecting a physical football game. This is football. I’m guaranteeing the NFL, the world will stop for this game, and everybody wants to see it. We will be ready.
“You all know the numbers. There is nobody who can do it better than me,” Suggs said. “It’s going to be fun. I’m pretty sure that they’ll have something in store to make sure I don’t have a day, but like I said, I love being the bad guy. Whatever they’re going to do, we’re going to act accordingly.”
On if Hines Ward should play this Sunday:
“I’m looking right at you 86. I need you to play,” Suggs said. “Please put on that 86, that smile and all the things you do. We need all that for this this game.’
I do wonder if we will hear any response from the Steelers who had an awful lot to say over the off-season into the Ravenns-Steelers Week One tilt.
