Terrell Suggs doesn’t like the New England Patriots. That is painfully obvious. He’s expressed vitriol toward them on many occasions in the past including after their playoff game this past off-season. He called them arrogant f—ers among other things.
Clearly, a win over them during a Super Bowl run hasn’t been enough to tame Suggs’ aggression toward the Pats.
Joining “The Big Show” on WEEI, Suggs said he “guarantees the other 31 [NFL] teams hate the New England Patriots.” The Baltimore Ravens star also said he doesn’t feel the Patriots “respect anybody.”
“The NFL is not very big,” Suggs said on WEEI. “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.”
They may be considered a first class organization, but there are players around the league who feel this way about the Pats. I think it starts with Bill Belichick and the way he does things. Plus, the fact that he smiles as often as a pit bull make him an easy figure to hate. But Suggs’ disdain for the Pats has no limits. Even pretty boy Tom Brady adds to the evil empire persona:
“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?” -Source
Years ago, this type of attitude from Suggs would have been dismissed as him simply envying the Pats and the glory they’ve enjoyed. Now, after finally winning the Super Bowl himself, second in franchise history, it can’t be viewed as anything but legitimate distaste.
