It's Not A Coincidence The New England Patriots Are The Beneficiaries Of The Worst Play Calls In NFL History
This is why I have no faith in any team beating the Patriots. It's not that they are that good of a team. I mean, they are a good team, but they aren't THAT good. They aren't unbeatable. Hell, we saw it in the Super Bowl. They were beat. Hand the ball to Marshawn Lynch and run right into the history books as back-to-back champions. I think we all remember what happened there. In a way I think we took a little solace in the fact that Pete Carroll and company gave the game away. It allowed us to say that the Seahawks lost the game instead of the Patriots winning it, because, well, that's exactly what happened.
However, what happens when that becomes a trend? I hate to say it but I think that Bill Belichick is like the ridiculously hot girl standing alone at the bar. You know exactly what to say or do until you are face to face with her and you start stuttering uncontrollable. The Colts drooled on their shoe. They spilled their beer down their shirt. They pissed directly down their pant leg. They let out the loudest of farts during the most precarious of situations. It just doesn't make any sense. A blind kid playing 'Madden' wouldn't call that play, and it's not because he can't see, but because that play is literally too stupid to exist in a video game. The Colts can't even lose to the Patriots because they have already lost to their inability to look past who they are playing before they even start playing them. This game was over the second that Chuck Pagano drew up this strategical abortion and had his team start practicing it. Tom Brady is a great quarterback. Bill Belichick is a great Head Coach. They don't need teams to do them any favors, so when will teams stop doing them favors? I just have a hard time believing it's a coincidence that the two most mind numbing plays of the last year happened against the same team. It makes you question whether Bill Belichick is that smart, or if his mere presence is just stupefying? At this point I'm not even mad that the Patriots are good at football, I am impressed that they are better at mind games. Well, that and the Colts are really, REALLY bad at them.
