WEEK SEVEN @ NEW YORK JETS L 30-27
hey kids- well, our patriots lost to the jets, and i’m really %!ng mad about it. blah blah blah, weird call, blah blah blah new rule, blah blah blah wtf. our patriots had lots of opportunities to win this game long before overtime and the stupid bizarrely-named unsportsmanlike conduct call, but they played like CRAP. i’m getting really sick of it.
our fearless quarterback led the crappy charge, going just 22 of 46 with another freaking interception. i know they’re not always his fault, but seriously boys! you’re %!ng killin me. tommy threw for what’s become a season average 228 yards – most of them to a finally-back-in-action rob gronkowski. in spite of the respectable stats, gronk was definitely a little rusty – highlighted by a fourth quarter drop that would have clinched the game. tommy was as annoyed as i was, seeing as how we’ve both been waiting FOREVER for gronk to get his %!ng abs on the field. c’mon boys. you know you’re getting back together. hug it out and let’s play some %!ng football!
i had a really hard time picking this week’s totw since i pretty much hate all patriots everywhere (but mostly the ones in foxborough) this week. i almost gave it to our new punter who’s been working really hard to make me learn his name after he usurped zoltan mesko, and i almost gave it to stephen gostkowski – who nailed two more field goals and is the only consistent point-earned on our team. however, at the end of the day, the tommy of the week goes to another rookie defenseman. newbie logan ryan followed in the footsteps of the injured talib and leapt right up to grab the first defensive points of the season. i wasn’t happy the D let the jets score 30 points, but another big play from another new guy whose name i had to look up on the internet definitely helped to make up for it. congrats, logan. we all know your name now.
we play a desperate miami on sunday morning – and i’m starting to feel a little desperate about this season myself. my only consolation is that only one of the last five super bowl winners had a better record than 10-6. let’s hope our patriots come together at the right time, and let’s hope it happens in new england on sunday! otherwise, there’s going to be a lot more % appearing in next week’s tommy.
i know many of you are distracted by the red sox, but you need to focus! think your happy patriots thoughts, and have a great week.
