Following up on the Ray Rice RB receptions stats watch, I think the next logical guy to follow the career numbers for this season is the potential new face of the Ravens defense, Mr. T-Sizzle. He's had his ups and his downs as a pass rusher here in Bmore, but I think his true value goes far beyond simply his pass rushing ability. He's a complete DE/OLB type who plays elite against the run (particularly setting the edge) and is far above mean for dropping back in coverage. That being said, when people look back on his career, they will most certainly talk sacks first. This listing will follow the same format as the Ray Rice listing, so I will list the top-5, then important list milestone players (i.e. 10, 15, 20, etc.). Additionally, I will list active players in the list (denoted with italics). Any HOF players will have an * next to their names. So without further delay, to the list.

All Ravens Stat Watch Topics:
1. Stat Watch - Career Receptions - Ray Rice
2. Stat Watch - Career Sacks - Terrell Suggs
3. Stat Watch - Career Interceptions - Ed Reed
4. Stat Watch - Single Season Sacks - Suggs & Dumervil
5. Stat Watch - Single Season Receiving Stats - Marlon Brown

#. Name sacks-tackles (games)

1. Bruce Smith* 200.0 - 1,078 (279)

4. Chris Doleman* 150.5 - 914 (232)
5. Michael Strahan 141.5 - 667 (216)

40. Bryant Young 89.5 - 512 (208)
.
44. Terrell Suggs 84.5 - 429 (149)
45. Greg Ellis 84.0 - 403 (176)
46. Howie Long* 84.0 - N/A^ (179)
47. La'Roi Glover 83.5 - 436 (193)

49. Charles Mann 83.0 - 795 (177)
50. Patrick Kerney 82.5 - 361 (159)

^ - Pro-Football-Reference has this listed as 0. Assuming it has something to do with "officialness" of this stat. I only included it herein for rough comparison to go along with sacks (I may add FF numbers here soon).

Full List

One additional note/addendum to the list above...

Playoff Sack Leaders:
1. Willie McGinest - 16.0
2. Bruce Smith* - 14.5
3. Reggie White* - 12.0
3. Terrell Suggs - 12.0
5. Charles Haley - 11.0
5. LaMarr Woodley - 11.0
7. Carl Eller* - 10.5
7. Richard Dent* - 10.5
9. Trace Armstrong - 10.0
9. LC Greenwood - 10.0
9. Cedrick Hardman - 10.0
9. Charles Mann - 10.0

Not inconceivable that he challenges McGinest on this list.

A good season from Suggs should see him climb above Robert Porcher on that all-time list. He'd have to have a monster season to go above Joey Porter, but it's not out of the question.

And yeah, I wouldn't be surprised to see him eclipse McGinest as the playoff sack leader.

Definitely worth noting that sacks were not an officially recorded stat until 1982.

Currently I'm setting my expectation for both he and Doom at 11 sacks a piece, so my thought is that he draws even with Porcher by the end of this season. Suggs looks to be in great shape this year.

Through three games mr. Sizzle has 3 sacks, bringing him to 87.5 in his career, tying him with Leonard little at #42 on the official list.

I had no idea this was an older thread. Must've missed this one.

Now this one is definitely more relevant than the Rice one IMO. Because no matter what Rice does, I don't think his accomplishments will really matter. They might perhaps matter to getting into the Ravens ring of honor, but that's his peak accomplishment.

Suggs on the other hand has got a shot at the HOF. Guy has the record for the most sacks in NCAA history and he's got a DPOY award on his resume.

So the way I see it, assuming this team is strong enough to push towards the AFCCG this season, Suggs could surpass McGinest after THIS year. He only needs five sacks to do that. Assuming we don't get a first round bye, that's six games.

And looking at most of the AFC playoff contenders this year, I could definitely see Suggs going a sack-a-game, if not better. Clady is out for the year in Denver. The Patriots have never been able to handle Suggs. And besides the one outing, Suggs has done very well against Duane Brown for the Texans.

The only matchup that would suck for us would be Cincy, they have a nice pair of tackles and I'm not sure how well we could handle it. Kansas City as well, since I have to believe Eric Fisher will most likely settle into RT by the end of the season and Brandon Albert is a franchise type LT talent.

That said, assuming healthy, if Suggs can get two more playoff shots... he should definitely end up surpassing McGinest.
_______________________
- So with 22 NCAA sacks (which will factor in voter's minds, even if it's not NFL relevant)
- A DPOY win
- And if he can finish in that 120+ range, then I think he's got a strong case for being the 4th Raven to end up in the HOF.
- Another Super Bowl ring would also help his case.

To add to your points above, Suggs also seems to be emerging as the leader (at least the vocal leader) of the Ravens defense following Ray Lewis. Fair or unfair, this will carry a lot of weight with the HOF voters who attach a narrative to a guy's career, especially if they can bounce back and be a strong (consistently top-10 across various metrics - scoring D, yards, etc.) unit over the next few seasons. Considering that Suggs is relatively young for how many years he has been in the league, I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him get to 120 career sacks, which I think would give him very good credentials.

7 sacks to go along with 36 tackles. If he keeps this up and starts getting his hands on some balls, as well, then getting another DPOY is very possible.

Possibly even more impressive is the fact that he has at least one in every game so far.

Not if people don't realise that they're allowed to look at candidates other than the two or three young players that the media bobbleheads keep pimping.

If Suggs continues to play like he is, then he should absolutely be in the running, but I think he'd have to completely outstrip the likes of Watt, Houston and Aldon Smith to win.

T-Sizzle just vaulted himself to #39 on the career list with that 3 sack performance to 91.5 sacks, pushing Trevor Pryce down to #40.

In other news, is there any more doubt that Suggs is the byproduct of some government experiment out in the Arizona desert?

Quote:
"Ted Monachino said to me on the sideline, 'No. 55, it's time for you to make a play,'" Suggs said. "And I went out and did so. And then my wife, she told me to, 'Bring mama home three sacks. It was the fourth quarter and I was like, 'All right, it's time to get going. Mama said she wanted three, so I'm going to get three."

Were I a bitter Patriots fan I'd mention how he has the looks of one, too. But I'm not, so I won't.
