There is no off-season for Terrell Suggs when it comes to stirring things up. Not even after a Super Bowl victory.

The Ravens linebacker expressed his enmity for the Patriots on a radio show this week. And not just any radio show, but one on Boston’s WEEI. Suggs said he doesn’t feel alone in his dislike of the Pats. He said he "guarantees the other 31 [NFL] teams hate the New England Patriots."

"It ain't just me. Why did [the Jets'] 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."

Suggs, who didn’t back off his taunting of the Patriots after the Ravens’ AFC Championship Game victory, also enumerated part of his reasoning for feeling that New England quarterback Tom Brady is a privileged character.

"There was the whole invention of the Brady rule," Suggs said, referring to the prohibition on hitting a QB low. "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 was making radio appearances to promote the movie "The Coalition," a romantic comedy that he co-wrote. Somehow, you get the feeling it’s not going to do well at the box office in Massachusetts.
