The Caw: The Impossible Task Of Photographing Terrell Suggs

Posted Oct 23, 2012

Terrell Suggs yucks it up during the Ravens' yearly team photo tradition.



The task of taking the team photo is incredibly more difficult than you probably realize.

And it’s because of a one-man wrecking ball named Terrell Suggs.

Suggs loves the camera. He’s a filmmaker for goodness sakes.

But trying to take a legitimate team photo without Suggs doing something goofy is nearly impossible. The hall of team pictures through the years shows the evidence.

Either Suggs is striking some crazy pose or he’s been photoshopped to make sure he looks normal. For example, the team photo has the same picture of Suggs in 2008 and 2010, clear evidence that he did something so ludicrous in 2010 that they couldn’t use the photo.

Team photographer Phil Hoffmann’s only trick to try to catch Suggs with a somewhat genuine expression is to say he’s going to take the picture on the count of three but actually take it on one.

As I witnessed yesterday, that trick doesn’t work anymore.

First, Suggs threw off the whole thing by switching jerseys with Haloti Ngata. Then Suggs struck silly pose after silly pose.

He looked off into nowhere. He threw up some hand signs. He struck a model pose, then took that to a new extreme by seductively stretching his leg out. I’ll stop trying to describe his antics and just let you check out some of the pics from yesterday.

I hope you enjoy them as much as Suggs liked screwing them up (or enhancing them, if you take my outlook).
