Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs doesn’t like the Patriots. And now that he’s on his way to the first Super Bowl of his career after beating them in the AFC title game, Suggs has teed off on his team’s long-time nemesis.
“Tell them to have fun at the Pro Bowl,” Suggs said after the game, via Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports. “Arrogant f–kers.”
Suggs elaborated, explaining that, in his view, “These are the most arrogant pricks in the world starting with [coach Bill] Belichick on down.”
Suggs eventually calmed down, but only after pointing out that “ever since Spygate they haven’t been able to win.”
“All BS aside they are a hell of a ball club,” Suggs said. “They have the right to be arrogant.”
Under that standard, the Ravens do, too. Five straight playoff berths. Five straight years with at least one playoff win. Three AFC championship games. And now, finally, their first trip back to the Super Bowl in 12 years.
We’ve got a feeling that, win or lose, Suggs won’t be calling the 49ers coach an “arrogant prick” two weeks from tonight.
