So this little story about Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman is making the rounds and I thought I had to say something about it. Apparently Freeman went on SiriusXM NFL Radio and said “I hate to go there but I was supposed to be the MVP this year of the Super Bowl, but it’s all good, we got another shot.”
“I don’t want to make this no competiton thing with me and my quarterback. I’m just talking about from based off that game. Let’s (say) it like this: if I would have kept getting the ball, if I would have stayed in the game, I don’t know why I got out of the game actually…but if I would have stayed in the game, I would have got MVP. I’m looking at stats and I see my numbers didn’t lie. Look at my numbers,” Freeman went on.
Why am I not surprised by this? Oh, probably because this guy is an idiot like almost every other player in the National Football League who doesn’t play in New England. They just can’t keep their mouths shut. It’s late JUNE dude, why are you talking about a shoulda’ coulda’ woulda’ situation in a Super Bowl that you lost? Why are you complaining and talking about your personal stats? How can you be that delusional and self absorbed?
This is why the Patriots win, it really is. Players in New England know better than to act like a total clown and they move on from situations. You say this type of crap here and you’re ass is getting cut. Freeman clearly isn’t over this Super Bowl loss and this is another case of the Patriots just destroying a franchise. I would bet my lifes savings (not very much) that the Falcons have locker room strife and miss the playoffs this year.
All that aside, does Freeman forget what he did when his team was trying to lock the game up? He blew a blocking assignment and allowed his quarterback to get strip sacked for what would become a defining play in the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. Freeman didn’t even touch Hightower as he went by yet he’s sitting here talking about his stats and how he would have been MVP? What a LOSER.
