I just hate attitudes like this. Admit you lost to the better team, and work to get better. Having this ignorant attitude that "we are still the better team" is BS. How is that motivation to do better next year. Pisses me right off...
Joseph was not commenting on the Patriots at all but on the state of this
team. He was not asked about the Patriots but what changes needed to be made to our team. He simply said we needed to make a few more plays in key situations and we might have advanced. Which may be true and may not.
Here is the whole quote in proper context. Find the word Patriots or any reference to that team...
CB Johnathan Joseph
(on what needs to change next year for the team to improve) “To be honest, I don’t really know because obviously we had the right guys in here to win 13 ball games to get us up to that point. Whatever reason we didn’t advance, I still can’t put that over because I think we were a better team, we just didn’t make the plays that needed to be made at the right time.”
(on if the team lost its edge in the last month of the regular season) “I don’t think so. Like I just said, it comes down to making plays. Any time you’re in a big game, each ball game comes down to four or five ball plays at the end of the game. At the end, if the other team makes more than you, that’s what the end result usually is, a loss.”
(on the biggest thing he will take away from this season) “Just get better. Obviously, we took a step from last year, I think, with our young guys stepping up. I just think we have to build on that and just continue to go forward.”
(on if he sees the core talent on the roster continue to get better) “Absolutely. It’s just important for the younger guys to understand that if they’re on the team, how important you are. Each man that’s holding a position on the team has had some value. I think for the most part all the young guys understood that and took care of their business. But it’s all about getting everybody on board and on ship. I think just another off-season will us with the young guys that weren’t caught up to speed.”
(on what he’ll be doing between now and the Pro Bowl) “Watching TV, playing video games, playing with my son. Nothing else.”

Joseph ought to sue for misrepresentation.
