Much like the rest of the nation, wide receiver Brandon Marshall is tired of seeing the Patriots play in the Super Bowl. 

On “Inside the NFL” Tuesday, Marshall unloaded on the lack of competitive balance in the NFL. The Patriots have qualified for eight Super Bowls in the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era and advanced to 12 AFC championships. They’ve reached the AFC championship for seven straight years and played in four of the last seven Super Bowls. Only the Eagles stand between Brady and his sixth Super Bowl ring.

“The league is not competitive,” Marshall said. “We all should be ashamed. Even you guys covering them on TV should be ashamed. Players should be ashamed, coaches should be ashamed, owners should be ashamed. How do we let these guys do this year in and year out? Congratulations. You guys are phenomenal. You can’t get any better. But how do 31 other organizations let this happen? I know Ray (Lewis) is going to say, ‘I won a Super Bowl. I did my job.’ You should have won five.”

It’s apparent Marshall is speaking for the rest of the football world. According to a recent poll, North Dakota is the only non-New England state rooting for the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
