Angry Doug Baldwin is still pretty angry

Doug Baldwin will be playing in his second Super Bowl in as many seasons, but he’s still playing with that colossal chip on his shoulder. Following his team’s comeback victory in the NFC championship game, Baldwin didn’t wait for reporters to be allowed into the locker room to share a few thoughts. Instead, he walked out into a hallway where the media was gathered and started talking, in his very passionate way:

“How many of you (expletive) doubted us?”

“Write this down. Remember when we were 3-3? Everybody counted us out. Y’all didn’t believe in us. A whole bunch of people thought we weren’t going to make it. When we were 6-4, ‘Oh, that’s OK, they have a winning record, but they’re not going to go to the playoffs.’ Remember that? Sixteen-to-zero at the first half, how many of y’all counted us out, how many of y’all doubted us. It’s indicative of our entire season. You don’t want to believe in us, it’s OK. You don’t have to believe in us, because we’re going to believe in ourselves. We ain’t worried about y’all, we’re worried about ourselves. When it was 16-0 at halftime, guess what we said? Don’t trip, you don’t win the game in the first half, you win the game in the second half, and what did we do? We come out and we do what we do; we played football. We got an opportunity to do what we love, and we’ll see y’all at the Super Bowl.”
