Screaming his way through the halls at Gillette Stadium, Terrell Suggs proudly cried his creed in this video captured by WEEI.com.

That, of course, rubbed some Patriots fans the wrong way, and that was far from the limit of his tirade against the Patriots.

Suggs: "Tell them to have fun at the Pro Bowl. Arrogant F---ers."

Terrell Suggs: "These are the most arrogant pricks in the world starting with Belichick on down."

— Dan Wetzel (@DanWetzel) January 21, 2013

Suggs: "That's funny, ever since SpyGate they haven't been able to win."

— Dan Wetzel (@DanWetzel) January 21, 2013

Once he sobered up a bit after coming down off the adrenaline high of winning one of the biggest games of his career (he wasn't around for the team's Super Bowl run in 2000), he showed some respect for the Patriots.

Suggs has calmed down: "All BS aside they are a hell of a ball club ... They have the right to be arrogant."

— Dan Wetzel (@DanWetzel) January 21, 2013

He also showed some rare respect for Tom Brady.

"You can't take anything away from 12 (Brady)," Suggs said after his initial comments (via ESPNBoston.com). "You gotta play perfect to beat him, and we played perfect. I mean, a second-half shutout is pretty good."

The Patriots were dominated in the second half on both sides of the ball, giving up 21 unanswered points as they fell 28-13. 

The Patriots participated in a similar postgame celebration, doing Shawne Merriman's "Lights Out" dance on the Chargers logo at midfield after beating them in the playoffs in 2006. Picking up a postseason win is always a big accomplishment; doing it in enemy territory is something to boast about.

Voice your opinion in the poll on the right, but whether you agree with it or not, the Ravens earned the right to do as they wish, and at this point, they probably don't care what Patriots fans think (or anyone else, for that matter).
