Oh boy. He went there.
To many fans across the league, the name Nickell Robey-Coleman probably didn’t move the dial for them, but he became a household name during the NFC Championship game after he became the cornerback who blasted Saints WR Tommylee Lewis and didn’t receive a pass interference nor a helmet-to-helmet call that would’ve cost the Rams the game.
He admitted to the penalty several times following the game and stated how shocked he was when he saw no flags on the ground.
Fast forward to less than a week before Super Bowl 53, and he’s talking a copiuos amount of shit about his opponent.
During the first 4 years of his career, he was a member of the Buffalo Bills, so his dislike for the Patriots is evident.
“I’ve got Buffalo blood running through my veins, so you know I hate these guys,” Robey-Coleman told Bleacher Report’s Tyler Dunne. “I naturally hate them. I never liked New England.”
The 27-year-old really doesn’t like the way the Pats go about their business on the field sometimes. Sort of like when they went for a fourth down while up by 17 in the fourth quarter.
“S–t like that. Little s–t to look down upon a team,” Robey-Coleman said. “Little assh–e stuff like that. That’s what makes you not like New England.”
The Los Angeles Rams cornerback said he believes Father Time has finally caught up to the 41-year-old Tom Brady.
“Yes. Yes. Age has definitely taken a toll. For him to still be doing it, that’s a great compliment for him. But I think that he’s definitely not the same quarterback he was,” Robey-Coleman told Tyler Dunne of Bleacher Report. “Movement. Speed. Velocity. Arm strength. He still can sling it, but he’s not slinging it as much.
“Whatever he was doing – because of his age and all that – he’s not doing as much of that anymore. He’s still doing the same things; he’s just not doing as much of it. And sometimes, it’s not the sharpest. But it still gets done.”
The 5-foot-8, 181-pound Robey-Coleman had a very explicit way to explain how the Rams would do against the Patriots in Super Bowl 53.
“I know the art of war,” Robey-Coleman says. “I know when to sink my teeth in. And when it’s time to take advantage, when somebody’s on their heels . . . you’ve got to come at them.
“Stick a dagger in them. They’re not a team that you want to play around with. Stick the dagger in them and don’t leave it in them! Take it out!” says Robey-Coleman, then pulling out his knife. “And let them leak. Let them leak slow. Put the dagger in them, pull it out, and let them leak slow. Just kill ’em slowly. That’s how you do them.”
