Patriots defense is STILL underrated

At the halfway point of the season, the Patriots stats look like this:

 Through 8 Games16 Games TotalNFL Record
Points Allowed61121165 ('00 Ravens)
Yards Allowed187237443549 ('91 Eagles)

It’s stupid how good this defense is. Do I need to remind you that we’re in the highest scoring period in NFL history to get the point across? Most people would say that we haven’t played anybody yet, but I disagree because we’ve played 8 NFL teams and #ANYGIVENSUNDAY applies. Did you see how close the Patriots were to letting the Browns get back into the game (to cover)?

However as good as the D is, the notion that the offense is being carried is a little bit fucking crazy. Hey guys we have a 6 time super bowl champion nightshade-free quarterback. It’s tough to rack up stats when you rank 2nd in the league with an average starting field position of 33. Anyways, it’s a team sport. Team game. The team the team the team.

Patriots going to 3rd straight Super Bowl, NFL Twitter has more salt than the Atlantic ocean.

WHAT. A. GAME! Much respect is due to the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes. Holy shit that kid is legit and that team is really fucking good. I hope they win one in the future, but now is not the time. This is still Tom Brady’s league.

The GOAT did what GOATs do and led a 2 minute drive to put the Pats up 3 in the fourth, only for the defense to quickly give up a field goal to the Chiefs and bring it to OT. Why not, it’s not like I was already having heart palpitations.

Patriots vs. Chargers: A throwback to simpler times.

We are days away from the divisional round clash between San Diego…I mean Los Angeles and New England. These teams are no strangers to each other in the playoffs, but the Patriots have been whooping that ass for 10+ years now. It’s been fun. Fuck LA.

In fact, the Patriots haven’t lost to the Chargers since October 2008, a regular season game that didn’t feature Tom Brady. The Chargers rarely beat the GOAT, he’s 8-2 against them in his career. That includes two wins in the playoffs, a 2006 Divisional win and a 2007 AFC Championship win. The 2006 Chargers were 14-2 and expected to go to the Super Bowl… until they ran into Tom Brady.

The Josh Gordon era is over.

As it’s been reported, Josh Gordon is stepping away from the Patriots to deal with his mental health. It’s also been reported that he failed another drug test, which likely signifies the end of his NFL career.

What a shame. I hope he gets the help he needs to work on himself. He’s never come across as a bad guy, just one with demons. As someone who has struggles, and known many that have as well, this issues hits home for me. Life matters more than football. Sad to see such a talented, young career come to a close but you’ve gotta take care of your mind. It’s the only one you’ve got.

That said, this really sucks for the Patriots…

Looks like the Patriots are going to have to play in a Wild Card game for the first time in 9 years.

Let me start out by saying that game last night fucking sucked huge donkey balls. The offense sucked, Brady sucked, the defense sucked, the coaching sucked, EVERYTHING SUCKED. Yet they only lost by 7. The Steelers should have run away with that game, but they sucked too. They just sucked a little less than the Patriots.

So now the Patriots have fallen to the #3 seed in the AFC and will likely have to play in the Wild Card game. Anyone remember the last time that happened? 

Oh yeah, they GOT THEIR ASSES KICKED BY THE FUCKING RAVENS 33-14. Good times.

Let’s say the Patriots win the Wild Card game (which I’m not convinced they do), they then have to go play two road games to try and make the Super Bowl. As we all know, the Patriots SUCK on the road this season. They are 3-5 with some ugly as all hell losses on the road (@ Detroit, @Jacksonville, @Tennessee, and last night @Pittsburgh). So that doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence.

Of course, it’s the Patriots and they will probably make me eat my words. Hell, I’d be happy to. Slap on some American cheese on a toasted bun and I’ll eat the fuck out of these words. They’ve gotta show me something, anything, that makes me have a little confidence in their Playoff chances. 

WOOF. HERE WE GO.

Patriots – Steelers, a must win.

In a little over two hours, two AFC powerhouses meet in a game with serious playoff implications. The Patriots sit atop The AFC East at 9-4, the Steelers are leading the AFC North at 7-5-1.

This is a must win for both teams. The Steelers need this game to hold off the Ravens, who are only a game behind for the division lead. For the Patriots, they need this game to keep up with the 11-3 Chiefs and Chargers and 10-4 Texans for home field during the playoffs. With a loss they more than likely won’t have home field and may not even get a top 2 seed.

Brandon Browner going to JAIL

Browner pleaded no contest to one count of attempted murder and two counts of willful child endangerment. With that, he in the slammer for 8 years.

I know he laid some big hits on the field, but I didn’t think the dude could be a legit murdered off of it. I’m glad he didn’t actually kill anyone. That shit is horrifying for those poor kids, who watched him try to kill their mom.

So with that, fuck you Brandon Browner. Have fun in prison. You had it all winning back to back Super Bowls with the Seahawks and Patriots. What a life to throw away.

Idiot.

J-E-T-S! Suck, suck, suck!

Ahh the after Thanksgiving beatdown of the Jets. Nice and relaxing. Beating such an incompetent franchise just makes me feel good inside.

Is there any franchise run worse than the Jets? Even the Browns have shown some promise this season. The Jets drafted a QB, hoping he would be the franchise, and he BLOWS. He isn’t even healthy for today! They’ve gotta start 85 year old Josh McCown. 

This should be a nice bounce back game for the Pats. Let’s have it as a nice blowout to get the boys back on track. I want to see 300+ and 2 TD from Brady. I want to see Gronk actually look a little like Gronk. I want to see the defense give up less than 14. Simple things. 

If the Pats lose, that will be not great. Not great at all. But they won’t. It’s the Jets, who are we kidding. 

Fuck the Jets.

The Patriots, a blowout, and the bye.

U-G-L-Y. That game was fucking UGLY! A 34-10 ass whooping at the hands of old friend Mike Vrabel and the Tennessee Titans.  

The Patriots offense couldn’t get anything going all game. The receivers couldn’t get open and it felt like all game Brady was being rushed and had to overthrow or throw the ball away. This Titans pass rushed forced the issue and Brady came away with a completion percentage of 51.22. When is the last time he was under 60%? Seems like ages ago.

Oh wait, it was earlier this season in the ass whooping from old friend Matt Patricia and the Detroit Lions. 

Hmm, seems like the team struggles against old friends.

Patriots win big, Josh Gordon is ELECTRIC!

As you’re all aware, the Patriots beat the Packers 31-17 behind a 14 point 4th quarter and a dominant performance from Tom Brady and Co.

Josh Gordon was the star wide reciever, bringing in 5 catches for 130 yards and a TD on 10 targets. He made some leaping catches that looked like his hands were made of glue.
