WEEK EIGHT @ ST. LOUIS RAMS W 45-7
so, i don’t want to brag or anything, but i think the patriots may be reading the tommy of the week. after complaining last week that we were having way too many down-to-the-wire games, i was thrilled to kick back and watch our boys put on a show against the rams. maybe we should play all our games in london.
our fearless quarterback looked just like that tom terrific guy we used to know, showing off a little with 304 yards and four touchdown passes. it was nice to see tommy playing so beautifully, though i suppose when they plaster gigantic images of you all along the outside of wembley stadium, it does inspire you to deliver a larger-than-life performance.
rob gronkowski also delivered a fantastic performances on sunday – both on the field and in the end zone. after last week’s criticism of the signature gronk spike, he spiced things up – first with what was apparently intended to be an imitation of the palace guards. A for effort, C- for execution.
fortunately, rob had more than one opportunity to strut – and shake – his stuff in the end zone, racking up 146 yards, two touchdowns, and the tommy of the week. here he is, doing what would definitely be my touchdown dance if ever had reason to have one. as someone said to me on the street this week, hips don’t lie!
we’re on the bye tomorrow, kids, which means i’ll have to find another excuse to drink my breakfast (i’m accepting suggestions!). in the meantime, we come back with a tough division game against the bills, so get your happy patriots thoughts ready!
have a great week, and go pats!
