Default Jonathan Joseph: Texans "better team" than Patriots

This stuff bothers me. I don't take it as bravado, or a confidence build, etc. I wish guys would just take the reality..like Reed...and work to overcome the gap. Give credit, move on and work. Am I wrong here or do people like the attitude?

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...-than-patriots

Quote:
Color Mr. Joseph unimpressed.

"Obviously we had the right guys in here to win 13 ballgames to get up to that point," Joseph told Dave Zangaro of ComcastSportsNet Houston of Sunday's playoff loss. "For whatever reason, we didn't advance. I still can't put that over because I think we were a better team. I think we just didn't make the plays at the right time."

Asked if the gap between the Texans and Patriots remains a wide one, Joseph stuck to his story: "Not at all," he said. "Just four or five plays. You take a few of those plays that they made and go the other way, it's a different ballgame."

Show me how you're better J-Jo. Please, show me. By my calculations the combined score was 83-42. In two games you scored as much as they did in 1 game. Stupid **** like this pisses me off. You got corn holed by a team twice, so just giive em their props or drop a "no comment" and STFU

yeah, you play the games to show who is better. Unless you are in College and then they use the United Nations system of figuring stuff out by voting.

Can you imagine the **** Tom Brady would get if he said that had we won? We'd be coming down on him calling him a sore loser.

I get your point.

However, I think it depends on the context, because I hate that stuff too. I hate it after a game when a person is being a sore loser and not giving the opponent credit. However, if Joseph is being interviewed about the season and his reflection on the team going forward, I don't think he is being a sore loser in this situation.

Essentially, he is saying he believes in this team and is disappointed but hopeful going forward. I don't mind that. Besides, it is the coaches and front office who need to assess the team's talent and make up.

Arizona beat New England 20-18, no one believes Arizona is even close to the same team New England is.

I don't have a problem with Joseph saying what he said, or the way he said it. I'd hate to think the majority of our guys didn't believe they were on the better team. You're right, they have to prove it, they failed, & everybody else knows they're not in the same league.

I hope they come together next season to prove that they are the best team in the NFL.

Sounds like the post 2010 (6-10) arguments.

We're just a couple plays from 10-6.

We were also a couple if plays from 2-14.

It took upgrading a coach and some players. Sounds like a food recipe to take the next step.

What he said here doesn't bother me. I want my team to be confident and believe they can beat anyone.

But maybe he should have said, "We are the better team, but they played better than us today."
