11 Anti-Patriot Memes For The Super Bowl, Because Memes Are The New Trash Talk

Ad failed to load

Super Bowl LII is coming in fast, and that means the jokey trash talk is heating up between Patriots and Eagles fans. (It is just jokey, right?) For anyone who is less than fond of the team from New England, these anti-Patriot memes for the Super Bowl will crack you up. And hey, even some Pats fans might enjoy reading these, imagining how wrong the meme creators really are.

The Super Bowl is always a big deal for sports fans, but something about this upcoming game in particular has brought out the memes in full force. As you might expect, the fact that the Philadelphia Eagles haven't won a Super Bowl yet is a pretty prominent feature in this particular meme war. But there's plenty of attacks aimed at the New England Patriots, too, with plenty of references to cheating. And some just make fun of Tom Brady in the most juvenile and silly way possible, so that's fun.

The memes just reflect an overall truth about the Super Bowl, because this big game is a really freaking big deal to so many sports fans. It's the game that claims the attention of many, if not most, Americans. Seriously: the highest television rated games, such as Super Bowl XVI, drew in about 49 percent of home viewers, according to Statistic Brain. When so many people are paying attention to a single event, memes are certain to erupt. And, to be fair, lots of them are not exactly appropriate for a family website...

That said, some people like the memes more than the actual game, and that's cool.

Memes are basically the new Super Bowl commercials, to be honest. Plus, they're open to anyone and don't cost millions of dollars to make.

Of course, not everyone is so thrilled about the sudden onslaught of Super Bowl memes.

But for the most part, memes are one of the best parts of the Super Bowl. For better or worse, they have revolutionized the ancient art of game day trash talk. So unless you're a dedicated member of the Pats Militia, read on for a laugh or two.

1Oh Snap

Ok, Ok, this one is kind of a low blow. That's a cute kid, though.


It's not a surprise that the cheating scandal is the focus of many of these memes.

3Getting Political

Can the president control the outcome of Super Bowls? Get ready for your new favorite conspiracy theory. I'm afraid to see what Twitter would make of that idea.

4Pros & Cons

This list is all kinds of petty, and I'm here for it. "Never starred in a movie" is the silliest and best insult I've heard in a long time.


Sure, it's an exaggeration. But the tiny red dots outside New England had me cracking up.

6Meme-ist Meme Ever To Meme

Because 2018 isn't weird enough already, this meme is here. Beautiful, right? It may be one of the better uses of that emoji, to be honest.

7No Lie

Hey, to many fans, Flair is the GOAT to end all GOATs. Somehow, it's easy to picture the Nature Boy rocking some Super Bowl rings, too.

8Taking Sides?

I don't even know whether this is an accurate statement, but the idea of sassy church boards is delightful. Especially when a football game is the real subject. It's like a subtweet in the real world.


Now I want to learn everything about this auto shop. That's a lot of wit packed into a few words. Well played, Pine Creek Automotive.

10Pros & Cons 2

OK, but being "like 40" is not a problem. Even for quarterbacks. Fight me on this.


Forget football memes. I can't stop laughing at that prancing poodle.
