In Saturday night's 23-20 win against the Washington Redskins, linebacker/defensive end Terrell Suggs showed the explosiveness that made him a feared pass rusher in the NFL.
The three-time Pro Bowler was constantly in quarterback Donovan McNabb's face, recording a sack in the second quarter and nearly getting to McNabb in the end zone in the first quarter.
"I feel a little bit faster, but that isn't the question," Suggs said. "The question is, can I sustain it through 16 games? Everybody always starts out good, but I'm really focusing on finishing stronger."
Suggs' effectiveness came against rookie tackle Trent Williams, who seemed to be turned inside out by Suggs.
"It wasn't anything directed towards him, I'm just chugging away so I can get myself ready for Monday night," Suggs said in reference to the team's regular-season opener against the New York Jets on Sept. 13.
As for whether he would have liked to record the safety against McNabb?
"I was actually going for the strip," Suggs said of the play. "People don't understand that it's a preseason game, and you want everyone to make it out healthy."
