Terrell Suggs Calls Patriots Titles 'Fake'

Yet another outspoken Baltimore Ravens linebacker made the news this week ...

Appearing on RAV-TV's "1 Winning Drive", Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was asked how he felt about the Patriots' 39-26 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers earlier this week. 

Instead of giving a straight forward answer such as, "I'm only concerned about the Ravens next game," or "The Patriots are really displaying themselves as a threat in the AFC this season," Suggs decided to go a different route, and criticize the Patriots and ultimately calling their Super Bowl wins in 2002, 2004, and 2005 "fake."

Suggs compared the Patriots to the 2000 movie "Bring It On," a movie about competing cheerleading squads, one of which steals a routine from the other.  Suggs is referencing the the Spygate scandal from 2007. A scandal that cost coach Bill Belichick $500,000 and the Patriots a first round draft pick.

Suggs continued in his comments:

"It was bittersweet. It was bittersweet," Suggs said of watching the Patriots beat the Steelers. "I was thinking last night like, you know, if the Patriots were a movie, they would be "Bring It On." The Rancho [Carne High School], the cheerleaders, they’d be like ‘Yeah, they’re a good team, but their championships are fake.’"
