Doug Baldwin pronounced he would hoop postgame rants differently
January 22, 2015 - Finding Carter
Last year, it was Richard Sherman. This year, it is Doug Baldwin’s spin to be remembered for a rant.
Immediately after a Seahawks’ extraordinary 28-22 overtime quip win over Green Bay in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game, Baldwin couldn’t assistance though let out his emotions.
On a field, Baldwin in a TV talk finished a few comments about past criticisms by Deion Sanders of a NFL Network and Cris Carter of ESPN about a Seattle receiving corps.
Just stairs from a Seahawks locker room, Baldwin stopped in front of a vast organisation of media watchful to be let in. With a serf audience, Baldwin let his feelings fly about a media and others jealous a Seahawks. He also had a few comments during Jermaine Kearse’s news conference.
They’ve finished a rounds on amicable media, blogs and radio highlights for a past few days.
“Obviously we wish we would have rubbed things a small bit differently in that moment,” Baldwin pronounced Wednesday. “I felt like we was holding divided from all that happened that a group should be celebrating. That’s what we felt like, that we was holding divided from a group aspect of it.”
In a diversion filled with emotions, Baldwin certified his got a best of him, observant it was “spur of a moment.”
“Ultimately we wouldn’t take anything back,” he said. “I meant what we pronounced and we felt unequivocally strongly about it, obviously. But if we could go behind and do anything we would hoop it in a opposite way. we felt like we was holding divided from a team.”
While his radio talk privately mentioned Sanders and Carter, his diatribe to a media wasn’t directed during anyone in particular.
“If we wish somebody privately to take it personally, we will contend their name,” he said. “Or we will say, ‘I won’t discuss any names, though certain ESPN (analysts).’ Generally, it’s not to be taken personally.”
Baldwin isn’t fearful to answer critics. He’s been nicknamed “Angry Doug Baldwin” since a emotions, mostly spurred on by an admittedly large chip on his shoulder, can’t be disguised.
“A lot of people won’t know it since I’m in this world,” he said. “That’s me. That’s my makeup. I’m ardent about what we do.”
It bothers him to have contemporaries like Carter impugn him in that way.
“Him, Deion Sanders, Michael Irvin, we honour all those guys have finished on a football field,” Baldwin said. “But yeah, it felt personal to me since we felt those guys should know what it’s like to be on a inside and to onslaught for what they’ve earned.
“Granted, those guys, they didn’t start off where we started. But we feel like they should know.”
As for a chip on his shoulder? It’s staying. He needs it.
“The advantage is that we always have something to tumble behind on in terms of motivation,” he said. “It’s not indispensably what people contend out in a media. But it’s carrying a loyal chip — a loyal stone on your shoulder — for anticipating something low down inside that truly motivates you.
“For me, that’s several things. Sometimes it comes out as like we are yelling during somebody specifically, though unequivocally it’s not … it’s only built-up disappointment of whatever it might be that gives we that motivation.”
