Patriots Talk: Patriots Trolled Falcons At Super Bowl 51 Ceremony?
It’s quite amazing that its been over 4 months since the Patriots won it all. Super Bowl 51 will go down as one of the all time greatest comebacks in NFL history but it seems that the losing team, the Atlanta Falcons, will be the butt of every joke. Since losing in the Super Bowl, they have gotten mocked for their ‘Rise Up’ slogan during the 2017 playoffs, being the new Golden State Warriors (the team that blew a 3-1 lead….in 2016, 2017 has yet to happen). But the biggest one of all: blowing a 28-3 lead in the Super Bowl. The truth is, like the Warriors, it will be something that never leaves their franchise. This game was one that haunts a team for years to come, similar to the Buffalo Bills who lost all four Super Bowls from 1991-1994.
However, the Patriots also can’t resist the temptations either. It turns out that the amount of diamonds that were picked for the Patriots’ Super Bowl Rings totaled exactly 283 for EACH ring. (Or to put it another way 28-3) If that is not putting salt into an already a gaping wound then I don’t know what is. Then again Josh Kraft also dissed the Jets but what Patriot fans hasn’t already.
Josh Kraft invited today's community MVPs to tour Patriots HOF: “It’s a lot better than the Jets’ Hall of Fame, which is nonexistent.”

Even though the Patriots didn’t want to draw attention to the ring’s significance it is pretty clear that the number represents what the team was able to accomplish. There was no press release early on about the rings till after the ceremony this past Friday regarding the rings. Nonetheless, Patriots highlights are all available to see and have been covered extensively this past weekend and many past Patriots including Martellus Bennett were the biggest high points during the ceremony.
