New to Jets, Willie Colon hates the Patriots

New York Jets Willie Colon runs off the field after being ejected for fouling an official in the fourth quarter against the New England Patriots during their NFL AFC East football game in Foxborough Reuters

When Willie Colon was a Steeler, his battles with the Ravens were heated, but professional.

It appears his feelings toward his newest rivals have grown more personal.

The Jets right guard said he had “a lot of different reasons,” for his new distaste for the Patriots, compared to what he knew before.

“It’s weird,” Colon told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News of his days in the AFC Central. “I hated them [the Ravens], but I loved them at the same time, because they’re a team that forced you to give them your best.”

As for the Patriots?

“I just hate them,” Colon said.

Of course, there are financial reasons, as well, as he was ejected and fined about $34,000 after his late-game fight with the Patriots’ sideline during a 13-10 loss.

“I don’t like them,” Colon said. “But at the same time you got to respect what they’ve done as an organization. Winning Super Bowls. They’ve built a tradition there where they get it done. No matter what you feel about them personally, you got to respect that they win.”

No matter how much you hate them, apparently.

    Everyone hates the Patriots

    So you hate the Patriots, Willie? Get in line. Nothing new. I’m sure no one in New England is going to lose sleep over it.

    how do you have any respect for an oragnization who got caught for cheating????

  4. patriottony says: Oct 16, 2013 7:29 AM

    Can somebody,,anybody, give me a reason WHY YOU HATE THEM? I’m not talking pitty party wah..I lost! I mean they aren’t dirty players. They don’t taunt other teams. In press conferences unlike COLON/RYAN etc…they never badmouth or diss their opponents. They don’t thieve players, their players don’t take cheap shots at knees (POLLARD). Is it just that they win in spite of not having superstars (other than brady)? They play clean, they don’t spit on opponents, or stomp arms. When their big name guy goes down (wilfork),,,a no name steps in and plays….is that the reason? That a NO NAME, undrafted play suits up and takes on the job,,and it frosts your cherries they can still win?
    (I’m listening…….)

    They love to hate us.

  6. pats4win says: Oct 16, 2013 8:27 AM

    lol, he hates the Pats. Imagine that.

    He has been in the league since what, ’07 and has managed to play the Pats 3 times in that span and he hates them?

    Dudes got anger issues it seems.

  7. ampats says: Oct 16, 2013 8:55 AM

    Makes sense to me since when Colon was a member of the Steelers, the Patriots owned the Steelers.

    That’s easy THEY CHEATED their way to 3 Super Bowls and haven’t won one since. I know you will say something stupid like “all teams do it” well until another team and their coach get fined for doing it and lose draft picks for doing it than I will direct my attention to those teams. But it hasn’t happened yet. And for you stupid fans to try and justify what they did only makes you a tool. Bottom line they have won since they got caught

    MEMO TO PATRIOTS FANS: everybody hates the patriots, they are arrogant, they get EVERY call and they are classless but act like they win with class.

    Brady is a child who throws tantrums on the bench and Belicheat blatently video tapes practices and it’s forgiven…..wake up New England fans.

    what you wrote ^

    what you mean :
    “Everyone hates them because they consistently win.”

    Teams in the league have worked to get an advantage over their opponents since the league was founded. The Steelers and the Broncos have cheated with the salary cap. Both were fined by the league and lost draft picks… yet crickets. Fundamentally that is cheating to a much greater extent than having a camera in the wrong spot on the field.

    Get off your high horses. I’m tired of the morality police coming out banging the spygate drum that happened SEVEN years ago.

    You want to lump in with Willie Colon and hate the Pats? Go right ahead. Whine some more about spygate, it lets us know how afraid of the Pats you all are. BB will use that as motivation to lead the Patriots to yet another division title and Super Bowl appearance, so Tom Brady can finally collect his 4th ring.

  14. walkinginthewasteland says: Oct 16, 2013 10:27 AM

    Everyone hates the Pats because they are a bunch of classless arrogant trash talking babies. Best displayed by Marcia the whiner Brady and his coach. Its not the cheating as much as it is the classlessness of the organization and its players. Patriot fans who belittle this as hating and jealousy really have no clue how much their organization is despised, league wide. Its not just the fans, its the rest of the NFL.

    ^^^^^
    If you knew anything about football, you’d revise your comment to state that “the Patriots haven’t won a Super Bowl since they had a top ranked defense and Bill Polian had the rules changed to benefit his finesse Colts teams.”

    Fact of the matter is, the Patriots have been to 2 Super Bowls “since they cheated” as you posit, not to mention reeling off the greatest regular season in NFL history “after they stopped cheating”, and with a mediocre defense to boot.

    As has been proven time and again, defense wins championships. Not your flimsily defined “cheating.”

  16. ampats says: Oct 16, 2013 10:38 AM

    The only tool Patriots fans see are haters that must make multiple posts about something that occurred seven years ago while wearing their tinfoil hats believing the Patriots were the only team doing it. @realtool210

  17. tsizzlesucks says: Oct 16, 2013 10:40 AM

    Willie, just be happy you don’t get Big Vince or Tommy Kelly this weekend….that’s probably why you chose now to run your mouth! You stink in case you haven’t figured it out yet…the Ravens nose tackled regularly pounded on you. Looks like Rex is having an effect on you . Maybe you should idolize Sean Payton and the Saints…after all, ” cash for concussions” is their mantra!

  18. alexb1234 says: Oct 16, 2013 10:42 AM

    @pats4win: cheating on the salary cap is a little bit different then filming practices during super bowl week i think everyone would agree that filming practices illegally is a bit worse….I am not referring to the spygate situation that happened during the jets game which was also cheating.

    Yes, spygate was brushed under the rug by Goodell 7 years ago(tapes were destroyed by the NFL office that never saw the light of day hmmm)

    But I’m sure you are going to tell me that it is a coincidence that the last time the Patriots won a Super Bowl was…..7-8 years ago when spygate happened….it’s a lot harder to win a super bowl when you aren’t filming opposing teams practices….it’s like getting the answers to a test.

    Let’s go patriots we going to win this Sunday wagons bet the jets

  20. vegasmoose says: Oct 16, 2013 10:49 AM

    @therealtruth210

    Haha, live in the past much like the rest of the trolling patriot haters. And yes sir all nfl teams cheat to get an advantage. From cameras to salary cap violations and even tripping players on the sideline on kick returns cough jets and dolphins game. So yes realtruth210 most if not all teams cheat to gain an advantage. I would love to know your team. Because since spygate the pats have actually made it to TWO more superbowls and yeah they lost them, queue the giants fans comments now. Not to mention one of the most winningest teams since the infamous spygate. So spygate blah blah blah is a weak and moronic statement for anyone to keep bringing up something years ago. Lets just catch up with the times my friend alot of scandals and cheating have been had since.

    Move along folks, nothing to see here…

  23. jae121704 says: Oct 16, 2013 11:13 AM

    First and foremost – diehard Pats fan here….

    The spygate talk now is asinine. They were literally within a play of being 19-0 and a play of winning another SB in 2011. Not quite sure you can use the “they didnt cheat so they didnt win” theory.

    Have you ever noticed that all the teams that play the Pats make it out to be there regular season “Super Bowl”. This is because the organazation wins. Even with Cassel, they went 11-5. Any other year they would have made the playoffs, but lost on a tiebreaker.

    Some fans can be obnoxious, yes. Im a diehard fan, but I dont go around saying we are gonna win this year, and next year, and the following. But to not give Tom Brady and Bill Belicheck there due is absurd. The guys have single handedly been the best QB/HC duo in football in god only knows how many years. Calm down people, 5-1 is a great start….and more wins will be coming

    Is the thumbs downer denying the fact – not opinion, FACT… that the Steelers have not won one championship that isn’t tainted by PED cheating or the refs help? Perhaps they would rather put their head in the sand and deny what is indisputable fact?

    Why don’t you get your facts before you continue smearing?

    Or, do allegations (like the SB week filming that never materalized) become facts in your anger and hatred?

    Tapes being destroyed by Goodell – yup, agree with you on that one. Who knows what those films revealed and wish Goodell made them public. And if you think about it for a moment – do you think the Patriots gave film that gave more evidence of their ‘spying in the open’ that prompted Goodell to destroy them immediately? Or do you think the film probably contained evidence of even more blatant ‘spying in the open’ by other teams? We don’t know and that is why Goodell erred by not showing those to the public – which in turn made the Patriots as the only guilty party.

    As for your final comment regarding not winning the SB: accurate observation, but did you ever see which other team has consistently won the division and put itself in a position to win the AFC/NFC and go to the SB in the last 10 years? Maybe you should do that before continuing this smearing on allegations and misguided anger.

  28. brazzz01 says: Oct 16, 2013 11:28 AM

    Terry Bradshaw says otherwise on the PEDS and I bet Seattle fans would disagree on the last part.

    That is what I said.

    Zero Super Bowl titles not tainted by PED cheating or help from the refs. The Seahawks Super Bowl goes without saying. The Cardinals got royally screwed too.

    I wonder how much Rooney paid off the officials in both games.

  29. diehardpatsfan says: Oct 16, 2013 11:30 AM

    Everybody on here talking noise about the dynasty Pats must be living a miserable life and wish their team was nearly as good. The Pats are short handed and still winning. Guess they cheated for those too. Go figure. No matter how much hating you are doing just remember its not our fault your team isn’t worth discussing blame it on your tram owner. No better yet blame your parents for not helping you acknowledge greatness when its in front of your face. To set the record straight unless you are a rams or jets fan you shouldn’t be commenting. We supposedly stole the jets signals in route to beat the greatess show on turf that being the rams. Last but not least Colon is upset we didn’t sign him and he had to go play for blabber mouth rex ryan and stress thinking about the playoffs being in his near future. No team in the nfl goes out and not talk smack or get upset over calls. Its the nature of the game. #patsnation #goat #boat get with it or get left.

    He destroyed the tapes to ensure that they couldn’t be used again, and that no more were out there, and then Belichick would be in serious trouble if another one showed up.

    Nothing more, nothing less.

    …. when your defense is not nearly as good as it was when you actually were winning Super Bowls, and when your clutch kicker is playing for another team…..

  32. diehardpatsfan says: Oct 16, 2013 11:40 AM

    Do I really see steelers fans on here crying. Take the beatens and shut up. Y’all have more problems to worry about than to be on a patriots blog. Such as actually winning more games than you lose. On behalf of the #patsnation I want to aapologize for beating the steelers on several occasions to appear in the super bowl. The velvet curtain not as steel as y’all think it is. And the only thing more terrible as the yellow towel is the fact that y’all are made that y’all are no longer part as the elite and need another great team that being the pats to blame for y’all struggles

    Should be called the Syringe Curtain.

    I think it is interesting that the Steelers were perennially one of the sorriest franchises in pro football, finishing .500 or better just seven times in their entire 40 year existence before the PED cheating started in the 70′s….

    Willie go get a colonoscopy to see where your brain might be.

  35. brazzz01 says: Oct 16, 2013 11:54 AM

    I also think it’s interesting that the Steelers franchise in recent years has never been the same since the disappearance of Dr. Richard Rydze from the team’s staff.

    Now that is a story I think hasn’t gotten nearly enough airtime. I guess the cheating in that organization hasn’t stopped all these years…

  36. scalfor3 says: Oct 16, 2013 11:57 AM

    Hey giablommi you’re actually wrong. Polian threw his press box temper tantrum in 2003 and got the rules changed that offseason. The next year, the Pats b*tch slapped Pey Pey and the Colts out of the playoffs (again) en route to their third Super Bowl in four years.

  37. brazzz01 says: Oct 16, 2013 12:04 PM

    To think that the very last memory of the Steelers as a good team was this….

    TD 14:49 Demaryius Thomas 80 Yd Pass From Tim Tebow 23-29

    Ouch!! That’s gotta sting….

    The Patriots NEVER filmed any practices…That article was published in the Boston Herald by John Tomasi,via Matt (I Lie) Walsh, and was recanted by The Herald.

    And for all of you haters, they’ve had the best record in the NFL since 2007!

    49ers – Salary Cap Fraud
    Broncos – Salary Cap Fraud
    Steelers (70′s) – Steroids
    Saints – Cash for Concussions…

    …and the beat goes on…
