Patriots' Season Perfect For Rest Of Nation
February 7, 2008 | Onion Sports

FOXBOROUGH, MA?As the once-invincible, still-insufferable Patriots
attempt to come to grips with their 17-14 Super Bowl loss to the Giants,
the death of their dream to go undefeated, and the possible end of their
dynasty, almost every other person in America is reveling in what they
consider the perfect ending to New England's season.

"I just couldn't imagine a better ending to the Patriots odyssey," said
Simon Williams, a Kansas City-area football fan who usually watches the
college game but found himself caught up in the Patriots' sheer
loathsomeness during the season. "The utter lack of humility they
displayed alongside an equal lack of any joy in the game, that toad of a
coach, and that cologne-ad quarterback? If they have to act that badly
while playing that well, you really want to see them fail in the biggest
way possible. Thank God almighty, that's what we got."

There is general agreement that the Super Bowl, despite the low score,
was one of the finest in recent memory, due in part to the fearsome
performance by the Giants and a cool, courageous display of
quarterbacking by Eli Manning.

However, when asked about their favorite parts of the game, most fans
chose the Patriots' cocky decision to begin the game with a trick play,
which the Giants stopped handily; Bill Belichick's smug third-quarter
attempt at a fourth-and-13 conversion, which blew up in his face, instead
of trying a field goal; and New England's offensive line, which featured
three Pro Bowlers, allowing high-cheekboned, doe-eyed, supermodel-
impregnating passer Tom Brady to be hit over 20 times during the course
of the game.

"Did you see [Giants defensive tackle Jay] Alford smack Brady right in the
face on that last drive?" said Bellvue, WA newsstand operator Christian
Dansby. "Brady was almost offended. I think he forgot for a few months
there that he was a football player. It was just perfect."

"God, seeing Randy Moss do his weird chicken-wing crowd taunt when
they scored to go ahead in the fourth was awful," said Jeff Lafferty, who
watched the Super Bowl with rabid New England fans despite having
known them for years. "What's worse is that the Pats fans ate it up. Of
course, when Burress made that catch to win? Perfection. That's the only
word for the Pats now. Perfection."

However, most fans gave responses that had little to do with the game
itself and more with the almost flawless joy of seeing the Patriots lose, as
a team that has been insufferable and unappealing in victory instantly
became inconsolable and self-pitying in defeat.

Frequently mentioned examples of instances which, upon reflection,
sweetened the Patriots' utter failure included the team's propensity to
complain about unfair officiating after their victories; their habit of
gleefully running up the score, which also resulted in Brady and Moss
earning NFL single-season scoring records in blowouts; and of course, the
players' and coaches' hateful attitude.

"Come on, that cheating scandal to open the season and all they say
is 'Everybody does it?' They could have at least acted a little bit sorry,"
said Milwaukee architect and sports fan David Engel. "They acted like a
bunch of third-graders, just the way Belichick did when he ran off the
field with time left on the clock. At least he shook the other coach's hand
this time. That's a first for the big baby."

"The worst part for me is that none of them seem to enjoy playing
football," said Lexington, KY-area mechanic Jack Colgrave. "Even when
they were winning, all they did was taunt?Randy Moss taunting crowds,
Wes Welker telling people they sucked, Brady sneering at the very idea
they might get beat someday. What a bunch of absolutely perfect
assholes."

"Did their team plane land safely back in Foxborough?" Colgrave
asked. "It didn't happen to lose altitude over Boston, burst into a
cartwheel of flames, throwing players like Roman candles across
New England, and then slam into few dozen loudmouth Patriots' fans houses?

It didn't? Well, I guess no football season is perfect."

Thats fine, there are people who feel that way.

I took my medicine and swallowed it- the Pats lost, life goes on. Others need to let it go though. The Giants played their collective asses off and deserved to win.

Bitter much, the Onion?

Like Soup, I'm a Colts fan that enjoys the rivalry, but I gotta tell ya,
that's probably the most scathing article I've ever read about 'em.

Sure, they seem cocky, but who isn't in pro sports, and besides -
they backed it up. Just giving both sides' worth...carry on.

Can't argue with the way fans feel......I felt the same about the Cowgirls of the early 90's for the most part.

We got beat, it will sting for a long time, and,
no, winning it all this year would not make up for it.

The end is near.
playing in the worst division in football assures some
more playoff games, but I'm not sure another Bowl is in the works.
We'll see.
