Good riddance is right. I have had a hate-on for him since he blindsided Chad Clifton on an INT against Green Bay.

EDIT: To refresh your memory.

In 2011 he was asked about the hit again and here is what he had to say:

Quote
"I made him a household name and $42 million, so what's the problem here?" Sapp, now an analyst for NFL Network, told reporters Tuesday during a news conference at Super Bowl Media Day. "I still don't understand. You wouldn't know who Chad Clifton was if it wasn't for me. But now I'm so vile that I put a block on the guy."

Sapp is a grade A piece of shit. Buh-bye.

He's a dick. And an unrepentant one at that. Romanowski was a dick, but he had the excuse of being completely nuts.

Oh man... now I miss that guy. He was the Ultimate Warrior of the NFL - but in the heel role.

Saw the stat that this season there were 108 passes from the 1 yard line with exactly one  DRILLING AND MANLINESS DRILLING AND MANLINESS DRILLING AND MANLINESS interception.
Again, the objection isn't "pass" (although with Lynch as your RB, pass is more questionable. Context  matters) the objection is THAT pass to THAT guy RIGHT THERE.

There were a bunch of passes that were lower-risk with as good a chance of making the TD, with a fuck-ton less chance of interception. They didn't make those passes. They made the stupid one.

Yeah like the fade that's still low percentage yet becoming increasingly popular in the NFL because low downside.

PS I still hate the fade. Run the fucking ball, pussies.

It would have all been easier to digest if, say, they got beat in a good contest with a normal conclusion.  It is the WAY it happened.  The ridiculous high after the miracle catch, the inevitability of the assured victory right in front of you, and then just snatched away in the most abrupt and totally illogical way you can imagine.  It's like it can't even be real.  I literally cannot stop picturing this final sequence in my mind, also envisioning the alternate endings that should have happened instead.  I thought what GB went through two weeks ago was just about the worst-case scenario for how a team and its fanbase could be so utterly shellshocked, but then this happened.

Um, get real. Here's some perspective for you. Stop trying to make your fanbase bigger than it is, your team bigger than it is, or your players bigger than they are. If things go poorly with the cap, your team is literally a one-hit wonder while I heard talks of dynasty.

For fucks sake, your team tried to trademark a fucking number. You get no free passes for being dumbasses.

If someone thinks Beast Mode could not have punched through one yard for a TD, or just run around the defenders, I suppose we will just have to agree to disagree.  I've seen shittier RBs make that jump.

Packers' fans should feel a lot worse. We had a comically insane series of failures, fuckups, arrogance and stupidity that led to a monumental collapse against the QB who just pissed away the Super Bowl on a dumbass slant with a bad read. You guys got beat with a smaller lead by a QB that is most assuredly going to the Hall of Fame and is arguably the greatest QB of all goddamn time.

Everyone thinks he could have made it given 3 tries.  Frankly he probably would have made it in one.

Who still made an egregious mistake in the last minute of that game. Not taking a timeout when Seattle has the ball that deep is criminal.

He won didn't he?

From reading around the consensus seems to be that Belichick took the view that the personnel the Pats had out were better in a goalline situation than the Seahawks, and by using the timeout he'd actually give Seattle more of an advantage. But this is going to be debated ad eternum.

I think if it had gone the other way Caroll would be hailed as a genius and BB as a reckless risk taker. In reality both coaches took large but understandable risks, and let the players settle it, which seems like great football to me.

That isn't 2%, it is 22.2%.

Interesting article. I can understand the reasoning behind passing, but I if you are going to pass, that is not the play to call. Throw a fade to the corner, or (better) roll Wilson out and give him a run/pass option.

That's the thing right? Why run a pass play that run's INTO a stacked 8 man box? Though I'll agree with an earlier poster that the corner fade route is the worst fucking play in football. Run a passing play in the flat! Give your QB, the BEST RUNNING QB IN THE NFL, a chance to run! Howabout a PLAY ACTION PASS!

Maybe just maybe, the OC, with 30 seconds to come up with a decision in the biggest stage at the biggest time went...um um um um fuck it, THIS ONE! God knows you could over think yourself into the fetal position on that call.

I don't think Belichick had any sort of grand plan , he's probably standing there thinking 'I can't fucking believe Kearse caught that ball. Fuck it, we stop em we stop em, if we don't this is going to suck'

No, you really couldn't. In that situation, there really aren't many calls that are almost no-brainers like handing off to Beast Mode and sitting back to bask in the plaudits. I think even if they fail and don't win the game, the story completely changes to "Well shit, you gave it to your workhorse and New England just flat beat you, whattayagonnado?"
