Yesterday was such a wonderful day of football and I’m not just saying that because my Patriots won. 😀
But since I mentioned the Patriots – my GOD! So THAT’S what Tom Brady looks like when he has an actual wide receiver. I am still in awe after nearly 24 hours have passed at how effortless Randy Moss makes playing football look. The Patriots offense looked like a well-oiled machine!
Also, I will never, ever, ever again question Chad Pennington’s toughness. His ankle got bent and squished in ways that no human extremity ever should and yet he hobbled off, was taped up, and returned to lead his team down the field. That’s tough and that earns my respect, unlike the sad sacks that call themselves Jets fans. I hope the Jets lose every game this season for no other reason than their fans are a bunch of assholes (not that I needed to see them cheering the injury to their QB to know that). I think my dad and I, both Official Jets Haters, were more worried about the extent of Pennington’s injury than his own “fans.” The Football Gods see all, you jerks.
And most importantly, the Patriots came away clean. In fact, I don’t think Brady’s uniform even needs to be washed! The practically untouched condition of our #1 guy is huge after watching the Patriots’ Week 2 opponent San Diego get thrashed around by Chicago.
Is there a meaner defense than Chicago?! What a shame that they’re going nowhere thanks to a completely confused offense. Every time the Chicago offense was on the field, they looked confused, everything looked labored and painful, nothing was smooth. Even the best defense in the world isn’t going to be able to overcome a bajillion turnovers.
This is going to be one really long week. What’s worse, next week’s Patriots game is on Sunday night. BOO! I hate primetime games. 🙁
