Terrell Suggs hates the New England Patriots, and apparently so does everybody else in the NFL.
Suggs joined WEEI's The Big Show on Wednesday and said that the other 31 teams in the league feel the same way he does when it comes to the Patriots, and that he doesn't apologize for taunting them after the Ravens defeated the Pats in the AFC Championship Game earlier this year.
"Do I apologize for what I said? No. Do I mean what I said? Yeah," Suggs said. "Could I have worded it a little better? Probably. But the fact of the matter is you can't really consider it a rivalry because you have a few more championships than we do, but this has been steaming for a while."
Suggs also expressed his belief that the league took extra steps to protect Tom Brady after he suffered a knee injury in 2008.
"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?”
Suggs suggested that former Patriots players have discussed what's wrong with the organization, but declined to share more.
"The NFL is not very big," he said. "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."
