The “Golden Rule” is a common expression known to man and it easily means to “do unto others as you would have them to unto you.”

It’s a simple phrase that should be effortless to do; yet you’d be surprised how many people disregard this particular etiquette. So where am I going with this?

Tiquan Underwood, a guy who played wide receiver for the New England Patriots this whole season, only to be cut by the organization the DAY before the Super Bowl. Writing it gave me goose bumps, reading it must feel like nails going down a blackboard.

In no way, shape or form am I trying to criticize the Patriots. Don’t go throwing rocks at my window now, just let me explain. I am sure New England had valid reasons for releasing Tiquan Underwood. Coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots organization have always been known to take advantages of mismatches if it was given. This move could’ve been attributed to game planning reasons, matchup scenarios, or even just a need for a roster upgrade. However, the release of Underwood was never the point of discussion, it was the timing of the move that made this situation a huge problem.

The Patriots released Underwood this past Saturday after the receiver had gotten a haircut with the Patriots logo on the back of his head. If this doesn’t make you feel bad for the guy, then something is wrong. The decision to release Tiquan Underwood the day before the big dance had “bad karma” written all over it.

We all know what happened in the Super Bowl. The Giants’ defense held Tom Brady and the Patriots to seventeen points. The New England offense wasn’t the same and even though the team played hard throughout the whole game, the New York Giants seemed to have more of the momentum.

It was definitely a tight game the whole way and sure enough, the championship was decided on the last play, a Hail Mary pass from Tom Brady. The Giants were fortunate enough to slap the ball down in the end zone giving New York the Super Bowl victory. Once again, the Giants break the hearts of the Patriots with the score of 21-17.

Given all the trials and tribulations, Tiquan Underwood remained a professional and even continued to support his New England teammates. Good for him.

Via ESPN:

“I don’t want to be a distraction to the game or the New England Patriots…I will say this, The New England Patriots are a GREAT Organization. I wish them nothing but the best today. This season has been dedicated to Myra Kraft (MHK) Mr. Kraft’s wife…. w/ that being said I hope they pull out the victory in honor of her & because the coaches & players have worked so hard this season for the opportunity to play in Super Bowl 46. Go Pats!!!! #PatsNation”

You know what they say, “karma” always has it’s way of making things right.

    Wow, that is pretty nice of the guy to say he was rooting for them to succeed. I know I wouldn’t have been able to handle it that way. I doubt I’d even watch the game. I wonder if he did…

    • CDR says:

      It is pretty admirable. How many players would actually take their lumping in this manner and still support his teammates? Although, if the Patriots won, he still would have gotten a ring and money being that he played with the team for the majority of the season. I think he would be cursing everyone out if this wasn’t the case.

  2. I was a bit curious about the timing. Didn’t seem to make any sense. Kevin Faulk not suiting up at the last minute also was a mystery. I always fear the worst in these situations and wonder if we’ll ever know what the real reasons are that led to the last-minute roster move and activation decision. The “hoodie” works in mysterious ways.

    • CDR says:

      We’ll never know exactly what the Patriots were thinking when they made the decisions. What we do know is that Gronk went out to party with his clothes off after losing the Super Bowl. This would’ve been fine with me… but taking his clothes off? The guy is celebrating like he caught the Hail Mary pass in the end zone. hehe

  3. At least he didn’t get a tattoo, right?

    Groundhog Day was 02/02/2012 and even Punxsutawney Phil knew what the result would be ….. but we Pats’ fans simply refused to heed that prediction just like we did in 2008 . Ah well at least Brady gets to go home and “butter” Giselle’s biscuits . Can’t be anything wrong with that can there ? But Tom does need to remind Gisele that she should be seen and not heard . Super model or not , no one is interested in what she has to say about the team and her concerns for Tom , unless there’s a problem in their boudoir .

    tophatal ………………

    • CDR says:

      I wonder if Gisele Bundchen learned her lesson from all this backlash… Patriots players definitely thought she broke the “bro code”…. Gisele saying sorry? I doubt it.

  5. Crazy story, thanks for posting it, I didn’t hear anything about this, but only from BS. Wow, this is strange and insane.

    Bottom line, Im so glad the Giants won!

    • CDR says:

      Thanks for the comment Bobby! Yes, this story is definitely a good read. I am glad you heard it here on B.S.. This way we can talk about it all day long! hehe

  6. Sam Brief says:

    What in the world were the Patriots thinking when they released Underwood? He had played his whole career living up to that very moment, and they just let him go? I can’t believe that they couldn’t wait one more day.

    • CDR says:

      I hear you Sam. It certainly didn’t look good for the Patriots. The fact that the team didn’t win makes it even worse.

  7. And to think I was praising Belichick for being a class act last week. Geez.

    • CDR says:

      Hey! Welcome back SG! How was Pebbles? Hopefully good. Yea, this move definitely didn’t make the Patriots look like champions.
