Reason #1 on why I’m not super disappointed that the Patriots won’t make the playoffs this year: Because I remembered that Brett Favre is quarterback of the New Jersey Jets and I remembered that he sucks and when something big is on the line, the absolute last person in the world you want to hold your football fate is Brett Favre. Ask my dad, I called this last week.
I’m curious to know why the media fawns over him so much. Even as much as it pains me to say it, the Jets didn’t play terribly yesterday, Favre did. And some of those interceptions he threw didn’t seem like they were due to any physical duress, they were just bad decisions that a quarterback with as much experience as Favre should have never made. And once again, Mr. Self Important costs his team big time when it counts.
It’s karma because when the Jets made this trade back in August I KNEW something like this would happen and I laughed, but now my team got a raw deal due to it. Serves me right.
But I am so proud of the Patriots and I’m sad to see the season end. Everyone left them for dead when Tom Brady got injured and once Matt Cassel shook off the rust, they were anything but. Sure, finishing with an 11-5 record and missing the playoffs is unfair, but that’s life and life is definitely not fair. And I’m happy the season ended with a fun victory in Buffalo and not a crushing loss in the playoffs. Hell, last year’s Super Bowl loss was so brutally painful, I still don’t think I’m over it.
Today, things could be much worse. We could be Dallas Cowboys fans. Man, what a meltdown. Or Broncos fans. Man, what a meltdown. Or Buccaneers fans. Man, what a meltdown. And I’m happy for Chad Pennington. BURN! If I was him, at the conclusion of the game I would’ve been running around the field with middle fingers blazing.
