Ravens' Suggs Is No Fan of Brady

To say Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs hates New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, is like saying Conservatives don't like Barack Obama.

It's well known and not that surprising.

Suggs, who appeared on ESPN's E:60, talked about his disdain for the New England quarterback.

“I don’t think it’s appropriate for camera,” Suggs said when asked what he thought about Brady.

“I don’t like him. He don’t like me. I don’t like his hair. I don’t know. I don’t like his smug attitude. But then again, he probably doesn’t like my a—— attitude … Everybody just seems to worship the guy. Not me, though.”

Strong words. The rivalry between the two started three years ago when Brady got into it on the field with Suggs and Ray Lewis. Since then, as Suggs pointed out, there's no love lost.

My guess is Suggs is jealous because, over the years, Brady and the Patriots -- for the most part -- have gotten the best of the Ravens.

Not to mention the fact that Brady has a few more rings, too, which Suggs has also questioned in the past.

Brady definitely isn't losing sleep over the issue, and he should probably feel being the object of such disdain is actually a backhanded compliment. Suggs doesn't like Peyton Manning, either, and I'm sure his dislike of Manning grew deeper after the Bronco signal-caller torched the Ravens secondary for seven touchdowns in the first game of the season.

Suggs probably doesn't even like Joe Flacco, even though Flacco is on his team.  Maybe Suggs would be a little less jealous of Brady if he and his team actually won a few of those contests against him.

Remember, Terrell, everyone loves a winner, but no one likes a whiner.
