Suggs’ three-sack game vs. 49ers last season a distant memory

As the Ravens began preparation for the 49ers last week, Terrell Suggs was uncharacteristically quiet, declining to offer any bulletin-board material for the Super Bowl. Now the Ravens have arrived in New Orleans, and Suggs is being classy and sportsmanlike as he talks about his upcoming opponents.

Specifically, when Suggs was asked to talk about 49ers left tackle Joe Staley, he didn’t discuss the three sacks he had against the 49ers when they met on Thanksgiving last season. Instead, he said Staley was tough for him to handle.

“Solid, very good offensive tackle,” Suggs said of Staley. “I think he’s really underrated, but he was a Pro Bowler this year so I think he finally gets his just due. He came down to Baltimore last year and I had a little bit of a hard time with him.”

The Ravens’ defense didn’t have a hard time with the 49ers, holding them to two field goals in a 16-6 Ravens win, but Suggs insisted that the 49ers gave the Ravens all they could handle. It sounds like Suggs has a lot more respect for the 49ers than he has for the Patriots.

    Suggs is coming back into form again. Last year’s DPOY, look out San Fran! Can’t wait to watch this defense break that pistol offense like it was a plastic toy gun

    Ravens are old and slow…Lewis will be on the sideline starting his over due retirement by the second qtr…and chuck and duck Flacco will get picked 3 or 4 times…gonna be a great game

    Last time they played Suggs was up against Chilo “The Turnstile” Rachal most of the game after the already mediocre Adam Snyder got injured. He has to face Alex Boone in a line that now works together well as a unit this time.

    Can’t wait for the plastic pistol to break the brittle defense with a mixture of young runners and gunners. See a long night of ravenators tears, rambling rants and whining….should be a classic…cheers

    One man’s cure is another man’s poison. Glad you envy my life style because I feel it’s helping the mental health of Raven fans…it’s called a reality check and it keeps me very busy and from your comment its effective…thanks

    You need to enjoy the game because this will be the last chance you will have for awhile and you were too young to watch with the grown ups last time. Good luck!
