Yeah, yeah, yeah… I know. One play in a game can’t be blamed for costing a team a game. That’s what coaches, players, fans, broadcasters, etc. say when someone costs a team a game with one single play. *cough*Cody Parkey*cough*
It’s a trope we’ve heard time and time again. And while I would like to believe it, try telling that to Saints fans today.
Or Chiefs fans…
Especially Chiefs fans, who would be celebrating a berth in the Super Bowl for the first time in 49 years if not for their linebacker Dee Ford inexplicably lining up WELL offsides…
Needless to say, the people who were rooting for Kansas City to beat the Patriots on Sunday were not pleased with Ford following the game, even going so far as to change his Wikipedia page to say he died on January 20, 2019.
They also changed his position to “Offside linebacker.”
This also happened…
Pretty sure this woman speaks for everyone who was rooting against New England on Sunday.
You do have to feel for Chiefs fans. That one mental error by Ford was more than likely the difference between going to the Super Bowl and, well, what ended up happening.
This next tweet certainly didn’t age well… a few minutes later.
Interestingly enough, both Ford and Cody Parkey attended Auburn. Go figure.
Thanks to reader Brad for the tip.
