Footbawful lives! For one post. To be fair, it is a pretty spectacular post for those of us who appreciate a good facepalm.

I guess people will forever forget about Ray Allen's one cold game in the 2010 Finals...right?

What a ghastly choke job. I'm surprised in this Twitter era that Welker hasn't reached Bill Buckner status yet (though in that situation, the drought was much more palpable).

Even Braylon Edwards could've caught that.

When they cut to the Patriots bench after Welker's drop, it looked like the entire defensive line did a synchronized facepalm.

I know nothing of football, being Dutch, but that gif The Other Chris posted is mighty fine.

I think the Patriots scapegoat should clearly be Brady. The safety, and that terrible throw to Gronk, sunk the Pats. Welker's drop was ill-timed, to say the least, but you can't put it all on him.

AHEM.

Having said that, they were in the lead until Belichick's Intentional Touchdown Against call.

Kinda like how my 49ers were on their way to this exact game until Kyle Williams's monumental duo of fails that will be remembered for decades to come, seeing that two of East Rutherford's titles have directly resulted from 49ers chokejobs. :(

Look. Two well-matched teams, one team couldn't execute a couple of plays here and there, but still played well, generally. NY also had some bad plays. They also had an absolutely sick catch on their winning drive. So, no clear scapegoats in this game. Every guy mentioned as a scapegoat also had some phenomenal plays. We gonna scapegoat Brady after his 96 yard drive without any incompletions? That was pretty study.

So, no clear-cut goats that I see.

Wormboy, you're assuming football fans are rational.
