Former Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin, who’s always one of the smartest guys in the room, has a fantastic idea. He wants to change the name of the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Irvin suggested the NFL add New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick‘s name to the trophy, which is named for the legendary Green Bay Packers coach. We think this is definitely a winning proposition.
“I think the world of Belichick,” Irvin told the Herald recently. “I told him this, ‘Man, if it was up to me, that (Super Bowl) trophy would be called the Lombardi/Belichick.’ I don’t care what they think. It would be called the Lombardi/Belichick. That’s how good he is to do what he’s doing in this day and age, what the league is now.
“I would call it the Lombardi/Belichick.”
There are a few things we would call Irvin, but that’s another story.
Belichick has won three Super Bowls. Lombardi won two and the trophy handed to the Super Bowl winner was named for him in 1970, after he died.
Lombardi also won six NFL Championships, four of which came before there was an NFL-AFL championship game. He was 9-1 in the playoffs and 105-36-6 overall. We could go on about his significance to the game of football and its rise in popularity, but we’ll save it because you’re not an idiot like Michael Irvin.
Irvin is such a douche bag he ought to come out of retirement and play for the queens. he has the criminal record qualifications already.
makes about as much sense as he usually does. Any interview I have seen him do is so painful to watch I usually change the channel.
If such an abomination was to ever occur I would stop watching football altogether. I am dead serious. Belicheat is a disgrace. Just because you cheat and win three superbowls while doing it doesnt mean you get the greatest symbol in the sport named after you. The trophy is named after Lombardi because he epitomized everything good and pure about the game itself: sportsmanship #1. how could anyone in their right mind ever even imagine renaming the superbowl trophy after an admitted rule breaker / cheater who did so to obtain unfair advantage….that is called unsportsmanlike. Get a clue Irvin!
Come on now he didnt cheat, he was handed the damn things
9/11 pats go from rare obscurity to champs
Next season theyre under .500
Country goes to war, PATRIOTS win 2 straight
War falls out of favor they havent won a title since
Call me a conspiracy theorist asshole but i firmly believe this happened
Btw i live in mass so i have to watch this arrogant dickbag every week
Wow, before I even read the article I was thinking about making a smartass comment along the lines of “Yeah, we’ll rename it the Belichick Trophy”. Suddenly it doesn’t seem so funny any longer, more sad than anything. See children, cocaine is a hell of a drug.
Does it surprise anyone that a guy who grew up a star athlete, went to Miami, and played for the Cowboys where he proceeded to snort his paycheck believes this? I put it at 10-1 that the guy cant read, much less have the brain power to put things into prospective. We should really think about NBA champs getting the Lebron James championship trophy.
Aww, shucks. Let’s call it the “Everyone’s A Winner” trophy.
I feel dumber just by reading about this!
The only good ideas Michael Irvin ever have involve 8 balls and hookers. OUT.
quite possibly your funniest post ever.
The only thing that would ever be even acceptable to consider would be the “Lombardi-Landry” trophy… Two most impactful coaches in the history of the game, even if the latter was responsible for the popularity of the Cowboys.
Not Lombardi/Walsh? Where do you draw the line?
I’d fight for Walsh over Landry all day. You’re a closet “boys fan aren’t you? All Star struck and all.
