NOTE: The DolphinsTruth Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/dolphinstruth?ref=hl is getting slammed with all sorts of fun comments from ignorant Patriot fans, in case any of you want to go there and reply. In the left column you see their “Posts”. I prefer that all the conversations happen here on our comments board, but Patriot fans are not known for playing by the rules, so they troll our FB page instead of our site here.
We’ve all seen the images by now. Non-Patriot-fans will suffer forever as we cannot get the pictures out of our heads.
Meanwhile, the Patriots and their fans will not acknowledge that the title was handed to them. They actually thought they earned the win. They are filled with “yeah, but…” whenever you bring up that Pete Carroll made the worst decision in sports history.
I wanted to point to a couple of images to prove my point about what a lucky gift the Pats receive from Carroll. We’ve all seen Tom Brady celebrate touchdowns over the years. He is pretty demonstrative. He runs to his receiver and gets in his face, as if he were about to kiss him. Then he head butts the receiver, all the while pumping his fist in jubilation.
We don’t hold that against Brady, and we’ve all seen it a hundred times.
Here is another typical Brady celebration. Again, he has just thrown a TD pass, and he deserves to pump that fist as hard as he can.
But now we must look at the Seattle play and Brady’s reaction.
First of all, note that his helmet is off. Have you ever seen Brady when he WASN’T ready to get out there and play? He KNEW the game was over. He knew it.
Now note the reaction. Is he head-butting anyone? Is he pumping his fist. No. He is jumping for joy like a kid who just received the best gift ever.
How can any Patriot fan watch this and then still keep on saying that “they never gave up” or that the ending was “not a surprise because we had faith in our defense.” Nonsense. Just nonsense.
And speaking of celebrating, here is how coach Bill Belichick celebrated the free gift that Pete Carroll gave him:
