not that they ever went away but the pats are back like a bad horror movie that never ends, Nightmare on Elm Street XXVII or some bullshit movie like that. I mean all these movies are just continuations of Nicholson in the Shining, "HERE'S JOHNNY!!!" Unfortunately the patsies are like the dried petrified shit hanging on your dog's bunghole pubes. even surgical scissors can't get rid of that sh*t!
i remember last year getting into an argument about how brady & belichick might have one last hurrah left before brady rides into the sunset with his soon to be billion $ wife. and i kept hearing, pats are done, their time is over. i kept saying not so fast with giselle already worth $500mm do you think brady is playing for the $? you think he would take the beatings if he wasn't a burning desire for more rings? tonite i was watched both the steelers & the pats, well only first half of pats.
All i can say is: Patriots 1st drive 64 yards on five plays in 2 minutes, 08 seconds. On the 2nd drive, Ochocinco got leveled on a helmet-to helmet on the 2nd drive and looks like a fine could be leveled on that hit. Nevertheless, Ocho got up and caught a 6 yard TD pass. Mixed bag for Ocho but 2nd series TD 61 yards, 8 plays, 3:15. Halftime 28-0 pats. Brady was very sharp and his line is giving him more than ample time. First three drives 9 yards per down, 1st half like 8 yards rushing per down.Solder looks very good for a rookie LT, still too early to tell.
Pre-season is meaningless but NE may have put a D together this year. That could spell trouble. LB Jerod Mayo had two sacks, looks like he will play OLB or playmaker. Josh Freeman was hit 5 times on top of the two sacks in the first half. Constant pressure on Freeman with Andre Carter applying a lot of pressure in the pats D now focusing on 4-3.
All i can say is like a bad freddy krueger movie they keep coming back , i am starting to think guess that short of Brady going down, the AFC Championship Game is likely to be a battle with New England. Hopefully, that is a home battle but my gut tells me it goes thrue Foxboro.
With the shortened practice season due to the lockout, it would set the stage for an epic december battle for two veteran winning teams with great coaches/systems well designed to cope. with a number of steelers making cameo appearances in The Dark Knight Rises, hopefully we get a chance to put down the evil empire for good.
I predict the Dark Knight defeats Freddie on the frozen tundra of Foxboro, I am already working on the script:)
