Before his Achilles tendon injury, Terrell Suggs was the AFC's most prolific and deservedly feared edge-rusher.
The key word in that sentence—was.
His frightening blend of size, speed, power and unparalleled desire helped him win the 2011 Defensive Player of the Year when he totaled a career-high 14 sacks.
Unfortunately, T-Sizzle just hasn't been the explosive sack master in 2012.
Only rookie Courtney Upshaw was less effective as a pass-rusher during the regular season, and no Ravens player has a lower rating as a pass-rusher during the playoffs than Suggs, according to ProFootballFocus (subscription required).
Suggs totalled two sacks in eight games during the regular season and two in the postseason, both coming against the Denver Broncos.
Maybe he's on his way back, but Baltimore cannot rely on him to get continual pressure on Colin Kaepernick against San Francisco's stellar offensive line.
