The New England Patriots elimination from the playoffs has insufferable NFL pundits like Nick Wright doing the happy dance.
And as if losing in the Wild Card round to the Tennessee Titans wasn’t bad enough for New England Patriots fans, now they have to deal with the gloating from the likes of “First Things First” co-host Nick Wright.
While the unapologetic Kansas City Chiefs homer has given Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots’ dynasty praise during his show, the sports television personality doesn’t hold back his disdain for Boston sports teams in general on social media.
The Patriots and their fanbase has been Wright’s target lately, particularly because of his love for Patrick Mahomes II and his hometown team. With New England now out of the way, perhaps Andy Reed will get his shot at a Super Bowl title.
That potential definitely has Nick Wright gloating and stomping on the hopeful grave of the New England Patriots dynasty.
Check out this tweet:
Just like on his show, Wright’s praise of the Patriots is typically infused in some kind of anti-Patriots take. At the beginning of the season when New England was rolling, the Fox Sports co-host couldn’t give the team its props without pointing out their flaws.

Well, with how the season ended Wright ended up being right, but that doesn’t make his shots at the team and their fans any less nauseating.
But, what Nick Wright and all self-proclaimed haters haven’t learned over the last two decades is counting the New England Patriots out as long as Bill Belichick is running the organization is like a WWE wrestler turning raising their hands in victory right before the Undertaker raises once again and raises havoc in the ring.
So, have your joy Mr. Wright and good luck to your Kansas City Chiefs. With or without Tom Brady, Belichick will be as motivated as ever this offseason to make sure the team is competitive again.
Yes, the Patriots had a quick exit in the playoffs, but the team was still 12-4, won yet another AFC East title and were a few plays short of having an even better record and certainly advancing past the Titans.
That didn’t happen and like the players and coaches, there are no excuses. They didn’t make the plays they needed to make and now it’s back to the drawing board. To say “good riddance” is a bit premature.
Remember…a dynasty marked for dead in 2009 can rise again, especially if Brady is as hungry and motivated as his partner in crime.
