Not kewl

Tom Brady lost a regular season game today. The last time he lost a regular season game was December 10, 2006. Wow. Things could be worse… the Detroit Lions haven’t won a game since December 23, 2006. WOW!

We have been spoiled rotten when it comes to Patriots’ victories. And when a loss comes – especially in a game that we wanted so badly – it hurts worse than your average team’s run-of-the-mill loss.

I think today’s loss to the Jets hit my dad much harder than me. I’m pretty cool with it, to be honest. And I think I should avoid any taunting from my office’s resident Bills fan because I made sure not to taunt last week. Of course, if he does taunt, then he’s just an asshole and bad karma will fall him. But I think that’s unlikely.

The Patriots downfall today? Not being able to capitalize on all their scoring opportunities in the first half. With the game still in their grasp, the Jets were able to come out into the second half and chill. It doesn’t help that the Patriots seem to be missing a true leader on defense. It was almost a given the Jerod Mayo was taking over the role but with him out, who will step in? I’d expect a little more out of Adalius Thomas and Ty Warren. C’mon guys. Lead!

Overall, I think a humbling loss like this one might prove beneficial. Maybe. 🙂

    I think there’s a definite changing of the guard going on in the AFC east. Brady looks old and inaccurate after the knee surgery and they have no running game. The defense has lost everyone of consequence. Who are these guys?? I just don’t see them making the playoffs this year, heck, they very easily could be 0-2 right now. Tough times.

  2. I don’t know if I’d go that far. The defense has lost everyone that folks last season said was “old and washed up.” I think the larger issue lies in the lack of a big playmaker now with Mayo out. And I didn’t think Brady looked old. He looked rusty. And there were a few dropped passes, including an excellently defended pass by Lito Sheppard that would have been a touchdown. Edelman dropped some gimmies as well as Maroney and Galloway.
