The Ravens will be entering team meetings this afternoon, and the highlight of the defensive meetings will be outside linebacker Jarret Johnson’s hit on Pittsburgh wide receiver Hines Ward. Even though the hit occurred in the game Sunday, a lot of the Ravens probably didn't get a good look at it.
Johnson crushed Ward coming across the middle behind the line of scrimmage. It appeared to be some kind of shovel pass, but Johnson sniffed out the play, and snuffed out Ward.
“I keep hearing about the hit,” said Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs. “I hear JJ killed Hines Ward. I look forward to seeing it. During the game, there are about 2,000 things going on and you don’t get to see everything. “
When asked if the hit on Ward would draw an ovation, Suggs said: “It probably will. Hines Ward is definitely the guy we dislike the most, just like I’m the guy the Steelers dislike the most.”
