WEEK NINE VS. NEW YORK GIANTS L 24-20

 

hey kids-   the only way i’m getting through this one is with a bottle of wine and a bag of mnms. let’s do this.  

the patriots lost their second game in a row on sunday, and i’ve moved through most of the stages of grief now, finding myself teetering on the brink of another case of patriots dissociative disorder. there are a few things about this losing streak that are decidedly uncharacteristic of our pats – back to back loses, one at home, one after the bye – that have me worrying this might be more than a seasonal up-and-down and that it might not be quite over yet.  

last year, we spent mid-season relying on other teams to suck worse then we did until we finally got spanked to our senses by the browns. this season, our strategy seems to be wait til the fourth quarter, then play like patriots, and it’s no less frustrating. in the toss up that is the NFC east, the giants are apparently better than the cowboys, staving off our fourth quarter comeback and our hardly-fearless quarterback. there’s no denying tommy looks skittish, though whether it’s due to a suspect offensive line or his 34 year-old body (i feel that pain, tommy!) is uncertain. what is certain: tommy needs to stop throwing helmets and interceptions and start throwing to people on our team...and i need to stop eating mnms and expecting my jeans to zip. yes, i know getting old sucks, tommy. suck it up.  

even though i kind of hate the patriots this week, i heart wes a zillion – and seeing as how he’s practically the only guy on the field salvaging those crappy passes, tommy does too. here he is, showing that love and throwing a block – and probably screaming run, wes, run! i sure was!  

there’s no stand out contender for this week’s tommy, so i’m returning it to its namesake until he restores its reputation as an award worth winning. that’s right, tom brady – you sit there and think about what you’ve done! let us know when you’re ready to be a fearless quarterback again.  

we play the jets on sunday night, and i’m really worried we might lose – both because we’re playing like crap and because i mocked the jets for losing three in a row earlier this season and karma’s a bitch. i will be, too, if we lose, so think happy patriots thoughts and have a great weekend.  

go pats!
