Suggs thinks this year's team is equipped for deep run

Linebacker likes weapons on offensive side of ball

January 13, 2012|By Edward Lee

Since the Ravens drafted Terrell Suggs in the first round in 2003, the organization has qualified for the postseason in five seasons prior to the current campaign.

But unlike the squads in those years, the outside linebacker thinks this current team has the weapons on offense to cut a deep swath in the playoffs.

“You look around, and there are just so many special people in so many special places,” Suggs said Wednesday. “And what’s really unusual, for us, is that we have a lot of those special guys on offense. We had [running back] Jamal Lewis, [tight end] Todd Heap, and then you’d stop. [We had quarterback] ‘Air’ [Steve] McNair. But now, you’ve got the Ray Rices, you’ve got the Vonta Leaches, you’ve got the Michael Ohers, Dennis Pitta, Anquan Boldin. The offensive side kind of matches the defensive side. We’ve definitely got the potential to be special and do something special.”
