The New England Patriots haven't played the Baltimore Ravens this season, and they're not scheduled to face the defending Super Bowl champions until Week 16.
That won't slow down the trash talk.
Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, who was recently interviewed for an ESPN "E:60" feature, was asked about his thoughts on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. As expected, he didn't mince words.
“I don’t like him. He don’t like me," Suggs said, via ESPN Boston. "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.”
Suggs said in February that he "guarantees the other 31 teams hate the New England Patriots," adding that his disdain for the Pats "has been steaming for a while."
The contempt between the two AFC standouts goes even further. ". . . they talk a lot for only beating us once in nine years," Brady said in 2010. Suggs later said the Patriots' three Super Bowl titles were "questionable," and, well, it continued from there.
The Ravens defeated the Patriots in the AFC Championship game last January before ousting the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl. New England is off to a 4-0 start, while the Ravens sit at 2-2 after a sloppy loss to the Buffalo Bills Sunday.
