Terrell Suggs verbally attacks Tim Tebow!

    In the spirit of good old trash talk in the nfl, Terrell Suggs calls out Tim Tebow, and throws in a god reference to that insult as well. Wow, talk about heavy.  Here's a link to find out what was exactly said:

    Anyway, what do you guys think?  Just the nature of the game to hear Suggs talk smack about Tebow like this, or do you think he went too far?

    I don't think anyone cares about Suggs.  Tebow will be the one getting courted with big money, that's why Suggs is jealous.

      I wouldn't expect Tebow to be courted with big money. Chances are he will have to compete for the starting QB job next season. His own team has basically come out and said this.

        I was thinking more about product endorsements and the like.

    I don't disagree.  Plus, I think it's kind of cowardly for Suggs to say that considering there's relatively little to no chance that the Ravens will meet the Broncos in the playoffs at all.  Meaning, they probably won't see each other again until next season.  Don't get me wrong, I don't normally condone trash talk in sports, but if you're going to talk smack, then it's a lot more meaningful if you talk trash about the player or team as you're about to get ready to face them directly.  (i.e. Terrell Brandon talking trash about LeBron James in last year's nba finals, or the Giants wide receivers talking smack about Derell Revvis before their matchup against the Jets, which Revvis happens to be a part of)

    Suggs was interviewed by notorious instigator Skip Bayless on ESPN's First Take.
    Suggs made mention to Tebow's production.
    He then called the 8-8 Broncos "mediocre,"
    He then added that the Ravens don't need to pray on the sideline to win football games or be bailed out by a kicker.

    Suggs was taking a good-natured jab at the Broncos' Tim Tebow and the quarterback's religious persona, nothing more nothing less.

      Exactly! He's learned over time from one of the best at on and off the field trash talk -- Ray Lewis. It's not a big deal.

    I don't like all the "praise God" that is done during interviews by athletes but it is my impression that Tebo is merely thanking God for his blessings. Unless I missed it I don't believe Tebo thinks that God singles him out over other Christians. He knows there are Christians on every football team in the NFL. Regardless of how obnoxious it may be, Tebo is happy in his faith and wants to share it with everyone. I know people like that in my personal life and it is too much at times....

      I couldnt agree with you more. I think this one is really on the press for making it bigger than it is. So many of these players thank god when they are interviewed and so many of them point upwards when they score. Many of them huddle in prayer before games that usually the fans are not privvy to.

      I recently saw Tom Couglin speaking to the Giants in the lockerroom after a big win.. . .at the end of his talk they all took a knee and did their version of a prayer with a little swag to it.

    Whatever you thought about Tebow, after todays playoff game against defending AFC champ Steelers, tell me he can't play in the NFL. Whoever thought that was just flat wrong. I'd rather see Tebow kneel and pray than read about Ben Roethlisberger being accused of another rape.
