What the eff is the matter with some of you people?! And you call yourselves fans?! Have you even watched a Patriots game prior to this season?! Judging by some of your reactions to last night’s game versus the Philadelphia Eagles, I’m assuming you haven’t.
I read some comments by Patriots fans about how horrible of a game it was. Did they not remember the last time we faced AJ Feeley – you know, the game they kept showing highlights of last night – you know, the one where the Patriots lost in the last three minutes – you know, the one where Brady threw a whopper interception – you know, the one where the Patriots played a team that had a brand-spankin’ new coach for that very game and had only won two games prior?
What about the AFC Championship last season when they Pats blew a mammoth lead after the half? That was a horrible game (unless of course, you are a Colts fan making that one of the best games ever).
Was I watching a different game than everyone else?
My God, we have become one spoiled rotten bunch of whiny babies. Yes, Patriots Nation. The truth hurts. We have lost our way. We have forgotten how Adam Vinatieri made a name for himself, and we have forgotten the raw emotion of a game that runs four full quarters.
Sure, the Patriots weren’t playing their “A” game but the Eagles sure as heck were. Believe it or not, that wasn’t putrid play by our team but stellar play by the opponent.
With the sole exception being the Randy Moss pass interference call, I don’t even think my dad and I yelled in last night’s game.
And spare me the whole “now we know how to beat the Patriots” crap because we don’t. The Patriots still won. Did I miss something here? Isn’t this the same conversation that was floating around after the Indy game?
Sometimes, I feel like I’m living in some surreal alternate universe where everyone is stupid. Oh wait…
