Apparently, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is confused about the when/where/who of Super Bowl XLV. Or maybe I am. I thought it was on Sunday, February 6th, in Dallas, between two as-of-yet-undecided NFL teams.
But no. According to Suggs, his Ravens will battle the Steelers for the Lombardi Trophy this Saturday, in Pittsburgh:
"In my opinion, these two teams are the best...in the NFL. Anyone will argue that the winner of this game will most likely go on to win the Super Bowl."
"Anyone," Suggs? I think the New England Patriots, New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons, Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, and yeah, even the Seattle Seahawks might beg to differ. Suggs, who in calling the forthcoming rubber match between the two AFC North titans "Armageddon," has never been one to shy away from hyperbole, but I think he really believes this one. I guess to some extent, it's a savvy claim. If you boast like that and win, maybe it gives the guys in your locker room an additional boost of confidence. And if you lose, well, at least you made it to the Super Bowl...
