Jeremy Hill takes shot at Bengals, fans after getting ring with Patriots

New England Patriots running back Jeremy Hill didn’t play in Sunday’s Super Bowl LIII victory over the Los Angeles Rams. In fact, he didn’t play in any game for the Patriots since injuring his knee in the team’s season opener in September. But that hasn’t stopped him from celebrating the title or taking shots at his former team and fan base on social media.

Hill made a post to his instagram story feed taking great pleasure in prodding the Cincinnati Bengals for their lack of success while he earned a championship joining the Patriots.

Imagine life as a Bengals FAN,” Hill wrote on a black background with 17 roaring laughter emojis.

Bengals fans were irked and lashed out at Hill for the comment, which led Hill to elaborate on his post on his Twitter feed.

With the Bengals leading 16-15 with 1:36 remaining in an AFC Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Jan. 2016, Hill lost a fumble that allowed the Steelers to drive for a game-winning score (with the help of a pair of penalties) and deny Cincinnati its first playoff win since 1990. Hill has apparently been reminded of that fumble rather frequently in the years since by Bengals fans (or at least those he perceived to be Bengals fans).

I’ve been tormented trolled and (disrespected) for years from this fan base the moment I say something you guys go insane I’m a human being too,” Hill wrote in an additional tweet.

Hill spent his first four seasons in Cincinnati, rushing for 2,757 yards and 29 touchdowns in three years as a starter before losing a large chunk of playing time to Joe Mixon and Giovanni Bernard last season. Probably safe to assume at this point there won’t be a reunion tour in the future.

  1. Imagine playing a sport for millions of dollars and then bragging about something you didn’t earn and having the thinnest skin ever to not even double down on your brag

  2. Being trolled unfortunately comes with the territory of being a pro athlete, I wish Jeremy had handled it a little better.

    Having said that, he was looking like he was going to help the Pats this season after a good pre-season. I hope he is back with the Pats next season and ready to go.

  3. Hill was set to have a good year he was racking up 5/6 yards a clip his injury was a big reason for the slow start.very thankful sony stepped up and burk was able to return late in the year.

  4. Jeremy Hill didn’t win anything. He was taken on a free ride and hit the jackpot. If Hill doesn’t like trolls he should get the hell off twitter. The Bengals’ fans would like to congradulate Rex Burkhead who was always a class act with the Bengals and would never quit on any team.

  5. He only played what 1 game. Didn’t like him before the fumble. Dancing win losing games. Smh. He probably would have helped them. All the way up to a fumble that put them out of the running

  6. I’m a Pats fan and really liked the Hill signing but really man, you literally didn’t play for the last 19 weeks. Didn’t contribute at all, it’s a weird burn.

    It’s like Brian Hoyer bragging too….well at least he played more snaps this year.

  7. “I’ve been tormented trolled and (disrespected) for years from this fan base the moment I say something you guys go insane I’m a human being too,”

    So stay off social media.

  8. Shut up, rehab, have a good year next year….then you can say something…. Don’t be dissing your previous fans about a SuperBowl you had nothing to do with….. just sad

  9. Bengals fans congratulated Rex Burkhead (Patriots) and Andrew Whitworth (Rams) on making the Supe. Most forgave Hill for THE FUMBLE, but then he made a “business decision” to sit out most of 2017 that even the pro-player Marvin Lewis questioned.

    ========================================================================================
    Racking up 5/6 yards per clip? He only ran the ball 4 times last year. How can one tell if he’s going to have a good year after 4 carries, after 3 straight years of under 4 yards per carry?

  11. Mr. Hill….all the fans that BOUGHT New England Jerseys deserve a ring, not you. At least they contributed thier hard EARNED dollars to the team. You earned NOTHING or contributed NOTHING to Patriots this year.

  12. Hill is good, but was getting outplayed by Mixon AND even Giovanni Bernard. That said, the PATRIOTS won WITHOUT Hill. Glad the Bengals got rid of him. Even the water-boy did more work than Hill in the Super Bowl.

  13. So if Jeremy Hill doesn’t fumble in that game in 2016, the Bengals were definitely winning it all that year. He’s certainly no Stanley Wilson. And that’s how ridiculous everyone pointing to a single fumble sounds right now. Literally every player that has left the Bengals and come to NE has said the same thing because of how shockingly disparate the two franchises are operated. You’re all worried about a twitter comment instead of everything else that’s wrong with your team.

  14. Hill was playing really well right when he got hurt. Was running with power in short yardage like Blount, but also looked like he had more speed. You can never have enough RB like this. Believe he also played on special teams ala Bolden

  15. I would expect players to say it is better to play on a winning team, let alone a dynasty, than a middling team like the Bengals. But this guy takes a shot at Bengals fans and gets miffed that they react. Move on, enjoy the unearned ring and get ready for next season – there’s a roster spot battle ahead of you.

  16. Imagine if he actually did anything to contribute.

    You could make the case that he was 100% the reason that the Bengals lost their best shot at winning a playoff game.

    I feel that he would have had a great season as a Patriot–typical cast-off with a lot to prove and appreciative of a team that is not dysfunctional

    —-

    This is why everyone who is not a Patriots fan hates Patriots fans. It’s not the rings. People didn’t hate the 90’s Chicago Bulls. It’s the arrogance, the shots at every other fanbase (Colts, Broncos, 49ers, Steelers, Bengals, everyone) and the thin skin over the cheating accusations. Also, lets be honest, there are very few Pats fans that existed before 2001.

  18. His fumble cost us a playoff win against the Steelers and he had nothing to do with the Patriots win but he wants to run his mouth? As Ocho Cinco used to say – Child Please!

    I understand what you’re saying. He is a fool for running off with his mouth, and my God he’s a professional which requires some thicker skin. But quoting Ocho Cinco doesn’t mean much to Patriot fans. Around here he is referred to as “Ocho Stinko”.

  20. Corey Dillon
    Rex Burkhead
    Jeremy Hill

    I see a pattern here. However, why is Hill saying all this when he only played half a game?
