Nickell Robey-Coleman Took Aim At Tom Brady And The Patriots, As The NFL's Officiating (Or Lack Thereof) Apparently Has Him Feeling Immortal
NESN- “I’ve got Buffalo blood running through my veins, so you know I hate these guys,” Robey-Coleman told Bleacher Report’s Tyler Dunne. “I naturally hate them. I never liked New England.”
Why does the 27-year-old despise the NFL’s overlords? Jealousy? No, it’s not that. It’s their attitude and the general way they go about their business, like going for a fourth down while up by 17 in the fourth quarter.
“S–t like that. Little s–t to look down upon a team,” Robey-Coleman said. “Little assh–e stuff like that. That’s what makes you not like New England.”
“We have to stay connected,” Robey-Coleman says of Brady. “And he will slowly start to reveal himself.
“Yes. Yes. Age has definitely taken a toll. For him to still be doing it, that’s a great compliment for him. But I think that he’s definitely not the same quarterback he was,” Robey-Coleman continues. “Movement. Speed. Velocity. Arm strength. He still can sling it, but he’s not slinging it as much. Whatever he was doing—because of his age and all that—he’s not doing as much of that anymore. He’s still doing the same things; he’s just not doing as much of it. And sometimes, it’s not the sharpest. But it still gets done.”
“Stick a dagger in them. They’re not a team that you want to play around with. Stick the dagger in them and don’t leave it in them! Take it out!” Robey-Coleman told Dunne. “And let them leak. Let them leak slow. Put the dagger in them, pull it out, and let them leak slow. Just kill ’em slowly. That’s how you do them.”
I'd like to congratulate Bill Vinovich and his trusted crew of co-conspirators, for they cumulatively created this monster. Seriously, way to put away those whistles and leave the guy whose desperately dumb and intentionally dangerous hit quite clearly should have cost his team a Super Bowl appearance to somehow see a juiced-up Jalen Ramsey when he looks in the mirror.
Now, I imagine that the Rams' slot corner was a loudmouth prior to last Sunday. However, him being moronic enough to take aim at Tom Brady prior to the Super Bowl can only be explained by the type of invincibility one might feel after getting away with the NFL-equivalent of committing first degree murder in the broad day light of the public square. Between bragging his way into a $26,700+ fine after getting blatantly beat on the biggest play of his career and patronizing a Patriots' team that has unlawfully abused the underdog narrative, we're talking about a dude who defied certain death by way of dumb luck and suddenly thinks he's the Deadpool of the defensive backfield.
Personally, I can't wait for him to get the humbling he's had coming (which will probably look a lot like what you see below), but this juvenile jackassery all could have been prevented with the throwing of one flag. I don't maintain a real rooting interest in a tainted Super Bowl that I don't plan on watching, but I certainly wouldn't mind hearing that Julian Edelman put himself in the MVP conservation in the process of pulling Nickell Robey-Coleman back down to Earth from whatever self-important planet he's been inhabiting alone. After all, being made the goat by the GOAT would fittingly trip up a mouth that simply won't stop running. Even if it's a stumble/stutter that comes two weeks too late due to officials that basically enabled this idiocy with their incompetence.
