Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs always puts a unique spin on things and today was no different when he was asked about participating in Thursday night's "Harbaugh Bowl" between John's Ravens, and Jim's San Francisco 49ers.

"It's going to be fun, all the politics that have to do with this game between the two coaches," Suggs said. "Regardless of the end result, I can't wait to see the handshake. That's going to be awesome."

Suggs, of course, was joking about Jim Harbaugh's aggressive handshake with Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz that resulted in Schwartz chasing after him earlier this season.

All kidding aside, Suggs said that it is important to the Ravens to give their coach family bragging rights. 

"We really want to win bad for him," he said. "Everybody saw the ESPN special during the offseason with them two. We kind of saw them get after each other like they did when they were little. It's going to be fun to be part of another sibling rivalry."

Suggs also said that it is an honor to be able to play on Thanksgiving.

"I think they did a good job picking this to be a Thursday night, Thanksgiving, us versus them. They couldn't have picked two better teams," Suggs said. "I've never played on Thanksgiving in my whole nine-year career and finally I get the opportunity to do so. I'm going to be having a lot of fun like I always do. Every time we get the chance to line up, everybody takes advantage of that. And not only that, we're at home. We got the best fans in the world so that's going to be fun. I think we'll be alright for the simple fact that every time we line up at M&T, we show we're a special team. This is going to be a dogfight. I don't think they could have picked a better game in the season with all the politics. I think it's going to be a very fun game and you all should be very entertained."
