Don't get me wrong..I respect what the Patriots have accomplished this year especially in this modern era where there is so much player turnaround..and I'm extremely jealous.
Some of their players are ridiculous when it comes to their "fake" motivational tactics. I was watching the NFL Films post game after the Super Bowl and they showed Harrison and he said..."Nobody believed in us...but we believed in ourselves."
What the hell is he talking about??! The Patriots were favored...they had won 14 straight games going into the Super Bowl. Nobody believed?? He's an idiot..plain and simple. Did he try to convince himself that the Patriots were the underdog so that he could get "pumped up" for the game?
It isn't the first time they've used their imagination to get motivated. Before the AFC Championship, Marcus Pollard stated that "If we play any better than this, y'all just need to go ahead and hand us the ring." What's wrong with that? He's right!..they were tearing it up. If they played better, they'd beat anyone. HE SAID IF! The Patriots were highly offended by this remark.
Tom Brady said he should stay quiet because the Patriots don't say anything..they just let their play do the talking. All the guy said was IF. That's what I'm talking about. That's no insult...Pollard was right...IF their offense executed any better than they were (41 & 38 pts) they would go all the way. Is he supposed to expect that the Pats would shut them down...give me a break!
Some of you Miami fans may remember another highly "offensive" remark by Wannstedt directed towards the Pats. Wannstedt mentioned the names of a few of the defensive starters that missed the first game in Miami and said that the injuries hurt the Patriots defense. Washington was upset that Wanny didn't mention every single starter (including himself) that was out for that game. He felt it was an insult to exclude anyone. Wannstedt meant no disrespect but the Pats like to find any little thing to "get up" for games...it's pathetic really.
That's why I hate the Patriots. They don't need that mickey mouse crap to get up for games. They're better than that...or are they??
