Terrell Suggs remembers losing to a winless team

Four years ago, the 1-15 Dolphins got their one win against the Ravens.  On Sunday, the 0-12 Colts will try (or “try”) to get their first win against the Ravens.

And Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs remembers the last time well.  Or at least pretty well.

I lost to a 0-for team,” Suggs recently told the Baltimore Sun (via NFL.com).  “I think it was back in ’07.  It was actually the Miami Dolphins in overtime.  A little slant route got us.  But this is the NFL and they’re professionals, and we’re expecting them to light up and come up in here and play.  They’re just as big a threat to us as if we were playing anybody else.”

He’s right, but only because the Ravens tend to play down to the level of the competition.  If, however, the Ravens want to position themselves the best way possible for games against more challenging competition, they’ll need to take care of teams like the Colts.

Of course, this all presumes that the Colts want to win.  With the Vikings and Rams both at 2-10, the Colts still have yet to “clinch” the first pick in the draft.

    If the Ravens lose to Indy, they should just opt out of the playoffs. Seriously, I am a Ravens fan and beating the Colts is not something we do very well. I am hoping that the O-line protects well, and Cameron calls at least 35 running plays.

    I remember that game very well, unfortunately. I am a diehard Ravens fan and that was one of the most embarrassing losses I have ever witnessed (The Ravens losing to the Jags this year is no.2).

    If the Colts “lose” the #1 pick in the draft, their fanbase will riot. And I will be furious if it falls to the Rams.

    I’m sure the players on the Colts team want to win, however I think that is as high as it goes, and everything that can be done will be done to make sure the players don’t get their wish from the powers that be.

    Don’t worry, I think we know by now that the Colts have assured their desired 0-16 record through careful personnel choices.

    That 2007 Ravens team was no great shakes- they only won 5 games themselves that year.
