The Baltimore Ravens are about to take on the New England Patriots in a Monday Night Football matchup.
One Raven absolutely hates the “Patriots quarterback” and his name is Terrell Suggs. The Ravens outside linebacker has an deep history of being disgusted with a certain quarterback’s name. Suggs won’t say his name, but we all know what his name is: Tom Brady. He wouldn’t utter Brady’s name during an interview this week:
Reporter: “Tom Brady became the winningest quarterback in NFL history. What’s your take on that?”
Suggs: “He’s pretty good. Like I said, wins are wins and numbers are numbers. Numbers don’t lie. He’s pretty good.”
Reporter: “Is it fair to say you really don’t want to talk about Tom Brady?”
Suggs: “I’m like Marshawn Lynch. I know why I’m here. It’s a big game this week. We’re playing a good team. It’s going to be fun.”
Reporter: “You don’t want to say his name, do you?”
Suggs: “I mean, it’s going to be fun. We’re going to have fun. It’s going to be an interesting game. We accept the challenge.”
Suggs and Brady have a long history of hatred among each other. Brady began the feud back in 2010 by complaining about being roughed up by the Ravens defense. Brady and Suggs went at it during the entire game and then Suggs called Brady’s championship rings “questionable” during a radio show.
In October 2013, Suggs spoke to ESPN on how he felt about Brady.
“I don’t think that’s appropriate for camera,” Suggs said. “I don’t like him, he don’t like me. I don’t like his hair.”
Baltimore also doesn’t like the fact that Brady likes to deflate balls either, but that’s neither here nor there. Luckily for the Patriots, Suggs did sing his praises of the Patriots as an organization.
“I mean, how many Super Bowls do they got? They got, like, four or five and played in, like, six or seven,” Suggs said of the Patriots, who have won four Super Bowls and have appeared in six. “You can’t do nothing but respect that. Wins are wins and championships are championships.”
He was asked who are the Ravens’ biggest rivals, the Patriots or Steelers?
“That’s pretty close,” Suggs said. “We’ve had some legendary games with both of them. Nothing’s bigger than Ravens-Steelers.”
