Would somebody get this guy a muzzle? In all seriousness, there are very few people in the world who annoy me more than Mercury Morris. The guy is the definition of a person who just can’t let it go. He’s the guy who sits alone at the bar at Applebees telling stories about his high school football days. No one is better than him or the team he played for. The game was different back when he played. And of course, times were better then.
We all remember how particularly outspoken Morris was during the 2007 season when the Patriots were en route to perfection. New England ended up winning more games than Miami’s ’72 team that season, but in all fairness the Pats’ season was not capped off with a Super Bowl victory. The ’72 Dolphins are still safe, but each and every year we have to hear from someone on their team — particularly Morris — ranting about just how legendary that team was. But don’t worry, he has nothing negative to say about the 2011 Packers.
“I have nothing but good things to say about the Packers. If they [end up] in our neighborhood, they’re a credit to the sport. They don’t have a bunch of guys out there who view themselves as entertainers,” Morris told FoxSportsFlorida.com. “I didn’t like the way [the Patriots] came across . . . They were too much in your face. They wanted you to bow down to them and kiss the king’s ring.”
