First off allow me:
Congratulations to the New York Jets who blew away the New England Patriots tonight. The Jets got rid of all the pre-snap motion crap, as well as all the signal changes and it made all the difference. An added bonus: with no Revis on the field the Jets may have figured out that they are better at two deep zone defense than a variant of the 46 defense.
That all said, this is for the New England fans.
We got hoodwinked in week one. This is like the time you spend a night at a bar doing your magic on this hot woman, you luck out and she comes home with you. Things progress and then she starts taking out the bra stuffer thingies and you are like "I got false advertising!"
A defense that looked fast and smart last week was the same defense from last year. The same team that scored 5 million points in the first half last year and only 4 points in the second half is back! How much fun is that?! Just balls out awesome if you ask me.
I am glad Tom Brady was resigned. I am falling all over myself that Vince Wilfork got a huge contract. Wunder-fiing-ful. Maybe a few bucks spent on Julius Peppers or any cornerback not named Darius Butler would have been more prudent? What a joke of a situation we have there. If Butler steps on the field next week he should be arrested. How do you play a 3 foot tall corner anyway? I know everyone is like "well can you do that?" and I would answer I do think I could cover better than Butler in fact. Give me a uniform, I cannot do any worse!
My fellow New Englanders, the Patriots are not a great team anymore. They hardly pass for a good team. I think we can beat any team in the league for one half, too bad there are two halfs!
I want you to remember the last 10 years of Dan Marino's career in Miami. He never got any help and the team maybe made the playoffs but were never a top shelf team. That's us now. Get used to it. The run is done, hope for the upper end of mediocrity.
Oh yeah, and by the way NY Jets, if you caught the Miami-Minnesota game you may want to watch out for those guys.
Have a good night.
