According to Baltimore Ravens defensive end Terrell Suggs, the hatred for their bitter rivals the New England Patriots extends beyond his locker room.

Suggs says the other teams in the league feel the same way he does. Suggs, who led his team to a Super Bowl title this season, says he doesn’t apologize for telling the Patriots to “have fun in the Pro Bowl.”

“The NFL is not very big,” Suggs said on WEEI, via ESPN.com. “You think we don’t talk to guys that have played for the New England Patriots, that have been on the New England Patriots that have been like, ‘Oh, it’s been like this. It ain’t just me. Why did Bart Scott say the same thing? You think it’s just us? You think it’s just got something to do with us? No. This is because we have inside information. We know.”

Suggs says the league took extra steps to protect Patriots quarterback Tom Brady after he suffered a season-ending knee injury in 2008.

“There was the whole invention of the Brady rule,” he said. “Years before, I hit Drew Brees and I accidentally tore his knee up. No rule was made. Of all the quarterbacks in the NFL who got their knees blown out when they got hit – Carson Palmer got his knee blown out — but then one guy got hit and changed the whole rule for the NFL?”

This guy really takes the "professional" out of "professional athlete".  How can the Ravens organization allow this clown to keep spouting off like this?

He thinks everyone likes the Ravens?  I'm from MD and I can't stand them! HTTR!

 

He's a moron....I wonder if he's already been measured for his orange jumpsuit...

I guess Suggs also hates Michael Jordan....before him, you could only take a step and a half...now you can take two steps, leap, land on two feat and shoot...more like rugby than basketball...

While I do agree that it would be better for Suggs to just not say anything and do what he does....which is win and win the superbowl....its about time that the Patriots are given a dose of humble pie.  No other team or player (Brady) is as arrogant as them.  And yes, you need a certain amount of arrogance in the NFL to succeed, their level is at the "rub it in your face/unsportmanlike" level.

Suggs is nothing more than a punk and a sissy thug...........honestly, who really cares what this moron is saying.

Of course everyone hates the Pats because they have been so good for so long.  Same reason everyone in baseball hates the Yankees.

Suggs be honest you NEVER "accidentally" blew out anyones knee you do it on purpose. At least have the limited guts to tell the truth about it...

Hits to the head weren't penalized for a long time, and that gave guys concussions.

Hitting a defenseless receiver wasn't penalized for a long time.

It's called the evolution of the game...

Terrell, drop it. You'll be out of football within 2 years and the next we'll hear of you is your bankruptcy

I am a huge Patriots fan - and a huge football fan.  This guy just needs to move on.  It's a game - "Let it go".

B. Tom Brady will go down as one of, if not the best player at his position of all time

C. Tom Brady makes more money, even while taking a "hometown discount"

D. Tom Brady gets to go home to a supermodel every night

E. Tom Brady has a tooth to gum ratio of a normal man

As a die hard pats fan who got to listened to this live this afternoon i honestly couldn't have laughed harder and not crashed my car. Everybody hates the patriots. Let them hate. Listen to his response when asked who was a better QB, Flaco or Brady.

Enough is enough suggs. You have been blasting Pats for years. Best coach probably of all time and Michael Irvin even says Lombardi trophy should be name Lombardi/Bellichek Trophy. Every team does something, grow up and rot in Baltimore.

 @BubbaJoBubba1 People in Baltimore are laughing with Suggs right now.  People in New England are fuming.

 @JoexBondo Would have probably gone on as the greatest, if not for those pesky Giants. Coughlin and Eli own Cheat and Brady.

 @jimrma12 As a Steelers fan, this is very, very painful. Suggs has the right to speak crap right now, especially about a team that the ravens whupped.
