The Patriots Celebration Midfield Moments After Beating the Chargers 24-21
I honestly can’t believe how much bs has been thrown around about this celebration. THEY CELEBRATED TOO MUCH! I WAS DISRESPECTED! THE TEAM IS IMMATURE!
Who the hell cares!?
There’s a great article on ESPN.com regarding this incident, which really explains the situation well. I’ll concede the Patriots didn’t really need to celebrate after the game, but I think I made that clear in my last post. The fact of the matter is it happened after the game, and furthermore you cannot tell me the Chargers limited their communications with the Patriots all game to “hello fine sir, are you enjoying the weather?” Give me a break. Trash talk, disrespect, momma jokes, all of that is part of the on the field battle, and deal with it or else you’ll be left behind wondering what happened (LT).
You can read this article from the other side and hear their comments. Even they argue things weren’t as bad as indicated by the Chargers.
This post was sparked by one nugget I HAVE to share with you. San Diego Chargers Linebacker Shaun Phillips was quoted on ESPN this morning, saying:
“Every time I will play New England it will be a personal grudge,” Phillips said. “That was very classless. . . . When we went in and beat their head in New England (last season), blew them out (41-17), we did nothing but compliment them and say they were a good team. We would never disrespect a team like that. We have class, and that’s how classless individuals are. Shaun Phillips will have a grudge against them the rest of his career.”
Put a microphone in front of a meathead and this is what you get! God bless the press! I love how he went third person on our asses for the last sentence. Why bother? What was his motivation there? Maybe he has a manager, like a pro wrestler, and that was him speaking for Shaun. I wish I had a manager. It’d be a toss up between Bobby “The Brain” or some hot valet, like Miss Elizabeth in her prime.
I guess all I can really say to that is so what. Again, I can’t really stress it enough. This stuff happens ALL THE TIME in football- in sports, really. I bet the next time Shaun Phillips makes a big play, he will do something to celebrate it. Unfortunately for him, that won’t happen until next season. Oops.
Enough about the Chargers from me. Andrews may have some thoughts he’d like to share, but as of tomorrow we’re gonna go into full AFC title game mode. So Chargers fans, one last message before you head on out to the offseason: Stay Classy, San Diego. And thanks for stopping by.
