Terrell Suggs and Tom Brady Mix it Up, Brady Taught Him How to Bag an Actress

The Ravens and Patriots certainly have a history with each other, and their two big meetings last year compelled us to choose their game as the subject of our Prime Time Preview this week. The teams did not disappoint, playing one of the two overtime games on Sunday with the Patriots winning 23-20.

One of the most intense moments of the game came late in the 4th quarter with the Ravens up 20-17. Tom Brady completed a 1st and 25 past downfield despite taking a vicious hit to the midsection from Haloti Ngata. Brady banged his hand against the ground demanding a flag be thrown but he did not get the call. Linebacker Terrell Suggs immediately got in Brady’s face as if to say “You’re lucky you got that off and you’re lucky the refs didn’t protect you this time.”

In last year’s regular season meeting between the teams, Suggs was flagged for roughing the passer despite barely touching Brady. Tom celebrated after the flag was thrown and linebacker Ray Lewis termed the penalty call “embarrassing” after the game. Suggs was happy the Bieber wannabe didn’t get the call this time, but the best part came in his remarks after the game.

When asked after the game what Brady said to him, Suggs answered “He was trying to tell me how to bag a Hollywood actress. He said, ‘If you want to get a Hollywood actress, take my seminar on Saturday.’ …He was going over the Dow and the economy and politics. He doesn’t really talk football that much.”

That was some funny stuff from Suggs, but his real message should not be lost: “[Brady] just better hope he don’t see us again.” It was an awesome game and the Pats had to scramble to pull it out. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Ravens won a rematch.

    I agree that the Pats had to scramble to pull it out and a rematch could go either way. But you have to remember this was the Patriots first game without Randy Moss, which means a lot of changes for the offense. Deion Branch got to New England on Tuesday and was still Brady’s top target for the day. I think the Ravens would be seeing an even better Patriots team down the road with an offense that has time to iron out the kinks. Obviously the Ravens could get better by then, too

    I would also like to point out that Brady did not back down from a much bigger linebacker. Most QB’s would never dare get into it with Suggs. Then again, Brady isn’t most quarterbacks. Point and more importantly, a win, for Brady.

    Of course Brady wouldn’t back down from Suggs because when it comes down to it who will the refs protect should anything happen? Obviously Brady knows he’s the golden boy with the refs in his back pocket. Kudos to Suggs for not taking the bait and getting his digs in later verbally. Go Ravens.
