31 Reasons why NFL teams hate the Patriots

If you didn’t know any better, you’d believe Terrell Suggs doesn’t care for the Patriots. Suggs has called the Patriots “arrogant pricks” in the past and on Thursday, he told Boston radio station WEEI the Patriots don’t “respect anybody,” and he “guarantees the other 31 teams hate the New England Patriots.” All 31 teams Terrell? Hyperbole much? But when you think about it, Suggs does have a point. So with the help of the intrepid Alex Gelhar and Adam Rank, we look for 31 reasons why every team hates the New England Patriots. ————————————————————————————————————————————– AFC: ————————————————————————————————————————————– 1. Buffalo Bills ————————————————————————————————————————————– The Patriots had a surplus of quarterbacks after the 2001 season, so, of course, the Bills ended up with Drew Bledsoe and not […]

It’s time for teams to stop caring whether their players are playing offseason hoops…

Earlier in the offseason, Ravens LB Terrell Suggs tore his Achilles. That, we know. How it happened? Well… that’s up for debate. An ESPN report seems to indicate the All-Pro injured himself playing in a basketball tournament, while Suggs has denied it adamantly. I hate to say it, but with so many eyewitnesses, it makes Suggs’ denial seem… slightly far-fetched. But here’s my real question: Who cares?  So what if he injured his Achilles playing basketball? Who cares whether it popped because he was breaking down a defender off the bounce (hip hoops term alert!) or if he was doing a three-cone drill on a field? Is it actually worse to injure yourself playing basketball on a court than under the […]

My story: How Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome and his scouts find passionate players and fill the team with them

I arrived in Owings Mills, Md., with a simple goal for my impending story. Understand why the Ravens select the players they do in the draft. I came away with a lot more than that. After an insightful conversation with ultra-respected GM Ozzie Newsome, I think I get it. I think I understand why they are always competitive and why their players look like they’d play for free. The Ravens scout passion. As Newsome told me, while watching tape they take their eye off the ball and watch how players move when they are not involved in a play — and they learn whether a guy is going through the motions or just lives it. For those with supreme passion, […]
