Tom Brady in Response to Terrell Suggs: ‘He Had His Chance’
Terrell Suggs and Tom Brady had an interesting exchange during Sunday’s Ravens-Patriots game. After the game, Suggs had plenty to say about the trash talking session without saying much at all. The Ravens linebacker said Brady taught him how to “bag a Hollywood actress” and added that the Pats quarterback — who was visibly upset when he didn’t get a roughing the passer call — better “hope he don’t see (the Ravens) again.”
During his weekly appearance on WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan Show, Brady stepped out of character just long enough to fire back at Suggs. When you consider his comments a while back about hating the Jets, you could actually argue Brady has become a bit more animated in the trash talking category.
“He had his chance,” Brady said. “Maybe if he gets another chance (in the playoffs) he can try to back those words up. But he had a chance yesterday. You know, we’ve played guys a lot, and they’ve beat us one time in all the times that I’ve played them. They talk a lot for beating us once in nine years.”
Whether you can stand his Justin Bieber cut or not, Brady’s got a point. There’s nothing wrong with a little smack talk heading into a game as long as you can back it up. Even if you don’t back it up, it’s all in good fun. But talking trash after you just lost? I’m not a fan of that. Maybe the Ravens would beat the Patriots in a rematch, but why should New England hope it doesn’t have to see Baltimore again after beating them? It’s tough to let your play do the talking when you’re fresh off a loss and hoping for a shot at redemption.
