08:03 AM ET 01.19 | Save for Ed Reed, the Ravens are working from Bill Belichik's playbook when it comes to the media these days. Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs has taken several subtle digs at New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady throughout the season, but he has been on his best behavior this week. In a news conference with the media in Owings Mills [Wednesday], Suggs said that he has moved on from any perceived feud with Brady. "I guess the genesis of that was the incident in '09, when I almost hit him below the waist," Suggs said. "That's when it all started, but you grow and mature. ... I respect him. Like I said before, when it's all said and done, they are going to speak on three quarterbacks: Johnny [Unitas], Peyton [Manning] and him."

Part of the Belichick methodology is to respect every opponent, and never underestimate them. He always says things like "They're a good football team. We've got our work cut out for us." He knows what happens when a team gets overconfident, and he never wants them to think they're "ready" and that they've practiced enough, or studied enough film.

He even talked up the Colts this year.

Wonder what Suggs might have to say about his QB?

I disagree just a little. Except for the G-Men, I don't think they respected any opponent they faced during that 18-1 season. They kept going on about that "humble pie" nonsense but the main **** like Randy Moss, Richard Seymour and Mr. Steroids(Rodney Harrision) could never really shut up. To this day, Rodney Harrison is still not liked by many on Sunday Night Football.

Probably figures that Ed said it all.

BTW, you forgot one QB in this conversation. Some dude that had a little success in San Francisco...

Jeff Garcia? No wait....Steve Bono?

Man, I was hoping he would say something about the Patriots...the fans need an enemy -last week when my wife and I hit the Pats-Broncos game that was easily one of the top 3 most fired up Patriot crowds I've seen in my 30 years of going to games- felt like with that atmosphere the Pats couldn't lose

How could he possibly bash Tom Brady, with Joe Flacco as their offensive leader ?

January 19, 2012  08:30 AM ET

who cares what he says, his actions will do the talking.

expect at least one roughing the passer.

Some idiot on NFL network was saying the Ravens should match TSizzle up one on one the whole game with the Gronk

You need to be much more specific.

sizzle will try to blitz the whole time. gronk will prob be matched up with a safety, or ayanbadejo.

I think it might have been Michael Irvin...and he wasn't talking about bumping him on the line than going after Brady he was talking full blown man to man coverage

Yeah -Matt Light vs TSizzle is probably going to be where this game is won or lost
Hopefully Ed Reed is a step slower too
