Suggs: Patriots are 'most arrogant bleeps in the world'

FOXBORO -- Terrell Suggs made his voice heard after Sunday's AFC Championship win at Gillette Stadium.

He was noticeably the loudest Ravens player in the post game locker-room scene. And it didn't even start in the locker room.

"We shut them out on the second half," yelled Suggs as he walked down the tunnel towards the locker room door. "Tell them to have fun at the Pro Bowl! We shut them out in the second half! Tell them to have fun at the Pro Bowl! Arrogant bleepers!"

Suggs walked up and down the locker room harping on the fact that Patriots players would be the ones playing in the Pro Bowl, now that the Ravens are on their way to Super Bowl 47 in New Orleans.

"Tell them to have a Mai Tai on me," added Suggs.

Suggs also continued to back-up his "arrogant" remarks.

"These are the most arrogant bleeps in the world, starting with coach Bill Belichick on down," he said to CSN Baltimore cameras

He later added: "That's funny, ever since Spygate they haven't been able to win."

As Suggs continued to chirp the Patriots, he began to backpedal on the arrogance comments.

They have the right to be," said Suggs. "You have three titles and six appearances, with 12 Tom Brady under center, they have the right to be. We respect them. That's it. Even enemies can show respect.

Suggs' loud -- and seemingly never ending -- rant also included a dedication to the late Art Modell. But for the most part, it had to do with his respect-filled hatred for the Patriots.

"You've got to play perfect to beat them," said Suggs. "And we played perfect, I mean, a second-half shutout. That's pretty good.

Any other team with this win would have been unjustified," Suggs later added. "Especially how the game last year ended, and who 12 Tom Brady is, and who their head coach is, and who their owner is. Between these two teams, you wont get another battle like this between two AFC opponents. We have the utmost respect for them.

Brian Scalabrine thinks Celtics could still trade for Kevin Love

Brian Scalabrine thinks Celtics could still trade for Kevin Love

Though the Celtics spent Thursday discussing a trade with the Pacers for Paul George, Brian Scalabrine still has designs on the C’s getting Kevin Love. 

Scalabrine says he could imagine the Celtics landing Love from the Cavaliers in a three-way deal that would sent George to the Cleveland. He noted that Love won’t be as difficult to acquire as he was when Cleveland traded for him in 2014, though he said he wasn’t sure if Boston would have to include recently drafted third overall pick Jayson Tatum. 

With that said, Scalabrine intimated that the sides have the assets that a deal between the teams would make sense. 

“I’m saying, we’d all look at the deal and be like, ‘Yeah. All right,'” Scalabrine said.

A four-time All-Star, Love will turn 29 in September.

BOSTON – Jayson Tatum was all smiles after hearing his named called by NBA commissioner Adam Silver as the number 3 pick by Boston in Thursday night’s NBA draft.

And as he made his way towards the commissioner and put on the customary Celtics hat, a bright future surely awaited him.

But is it going to be in Boston?

CSNNE.com confirmed an earlier report by Yahoo Sports! the Vertical that the Celtics were indeed engaged in trade talks with the Indiana Pacers for Paul George.

Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge is no stranger to taking chances that most GMs would not consider or take a pass on.

Trading for George, who informed the Pacers that he would not re-sign a long-term deal with them and would instead prefer to play for the Los Angeles Lakers when he hits free agency in the summer of 2018, is a huge risk.

While the particulars of the possible trade are still being discussed, Boston will likely have to include the number three pick – Jayson Tatum – in a deal for George.

Ainge appears willing to gamble that a season in Boston will be enough to convince George to re-sign a long-term deal in the summer of 2018 which would be a win-win in terms of bolstering their chances to compete with Cleveland for Eastern Conference supremacy, and keep him away from the Lakers.
