Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin Melts Down on Media After Green Bay Collapse in NFC Championship Game
KEEP IT CLASSY SEAHAWKS, KEEP IT UP AND PEOPLE WILL WANT TO ROOT AGAINST YOU.
Following the Seattle Seahawks miraculous victory on Sunday in the NFC Championship game over the Green Bay Packers in overtime 28-22, Seahawk wide receiver Doug Baldwin went on a post-game rant against a doubting media. Really dude, the chip on your shoulder is the size of the George Hallas trophy. During his expletive filled tirade Baldin spouted, “At 16-0 at the half, how many of you counted us out? How many of y’all doubted us?” Note to Doug Baldwin, pretty much everyone did, including your fans. When you stink up the field, can’t catch the ball, can’t throw the ball and your QB has a rating of 0.0, I think anyone in the free world had a right to doubt you. Baldwin further went on to lose his mind and said, “When we were down 16-0 at the half, guess what we said? You don’t win the game in the first half. You win the game in the second half.” Really Doug, is that what you said? I hate to burst your attitude bubble but with 3:50 minutes left in the game, you were down 19-7 and dead in the water. You know who actually thought you were also going to lose, your fabled 12th man. That is correct, so I guess Baldwin needs to lambaste the Seahawk 12th man fans as well as they left early, never believing that Seattle would win the game. You know, Seattle did not win the game, the Green Bay Packer gave it away, choked and lost the game.
Doug, you might want to ease up on the attitude, you got lucky. If you pulled such a stunt and played that badly against the Patriots, you would have been down 30-0 in the first half.
“Are you ready for this? Are you? How many of you (expletive) doubted us? How many of you doubted us when we were 3-3? Y’all, I want you to write this down. Write this down, OK?
“When we were 3-3, everyone counted us out. Y’all didn’t believe in us. A whole bunch of people thought we weren’t going to make it. At 6-4, ah, that’s OK. ‘They have a winning record, but they aren’t going to make the playoffs.’
“At 16-0 at the half, how many of you counted us out? How many of y’all doubted us? It is indicative of our season. Y’all didn’t want to believe in us. It is OK. We don’t need you to believe. We’re going to believe in ourselves. We ain’t worried about y’all. We are worried about ourselves.
“When we were down 16-0 at the half, guess what we said? ‘You don’t win the game in the first half. You win the game in the second half.’ When we do, we come out and we do what we do. We play Seahawks football. We got the opportunity to do what we love. And, we’ll see y’all at the Super Bowl.”
