Terrell Suggs says Tom Brady’s Super Bowl rings are ‘questionable’

Ravens defensive end Terrell Suggs, in an appearance on Sirius XM’s Mad Dog Radio, continued to take shots at Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The man who said that he voted for Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick over Brady for the Pro Bowl suggested on Thursday that the Patriots quarterback’s three Super Bowl titles were “questionable.”
Asked to evaluate the standing of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger — whom Suggs and the Ravens will face this weekend in a divisional playoff game — in the pantheon of quarterbacks, Suggs offered this swipe at Brady:
“If you ask me, [Roethlisberger] is definitely up there with them. He has the hardware to prove it. That’s all that matters in this league, the Super Bowl. He’s won two of them,” said Suggs. “If I’m correct, Manning has only won one, both Mannings that is, Phillip Rivers doesn’t have any. Tom Brady has three. A questionable three.
“You had the tuck rule incident and you’ve got the video taping of the other team’s practices,” Suggs added. “You’re like, ‘Oh, OK, what’s going on here?’ But hey, it is what it is. They won the games, no matter how they did it. Whatever.”
Suggs was then asked how his enmity towards Brady formed.
“I love Tommy,” Suggs laughed. “I don’t know. I don’t know. I guess it all brews from when I nicked his knee I guess a little bit. I was just like, ‘Wow ‘ you almost hit a guy and you get a flag?’ That kind of blew me away. I never knew one man could have so much power. I guess I stand corrected.
“Maybe [players feel resentment] because he is Tom Brady and he dates super models. That could have a lot to do with it. This guy’s got the world. He’s won Super Bowls, he’s dating super models. It doesn’t get much better than that. He has rules made for him. He gets to tell the referee when to throw the flags.”
