You may recall that Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs ripped into Tim Tebow last week, saying that Baltimore didn’t need all the lucky breaks the Broncos seem to get in order to win. Tim Tebow did a nice job quieting him, and many other detractors, by throwing for 316 yards and two touchdowns to beat the Steelers.
So what was Suggs’ reaction to Tebow’s big game, and the Broncos’ big win?
“I’m shocked,” Suggs told Yahoo!’s Mike Silver over text message Sunday night. “Jaw is on the floor!!!!!!! He shocked us all.”
If you’re wondering what inspired his reaction — besides his apparent disdain for Tebow — it’s that the Ravens were knocked out of the playoffs by the Steelers two of the past three years. That was their albatross. So to see Tim Tebow and his poor passing skills knock off the team they’ve been unable to beat was nothing short of shocking. Sadly, I don’t think we’re going to see a Ravens-Broncos AFC Championship Game. That has Pats-Ravens written all over it, though I could be wrong.
