The opening segment of CSNNE’s postgame is always entertaining as I await how Felger and the Lettermen are going to spin the latest Patriots win.
They did not disappoint last night, leading off with how the Patriots 49-19 was not a product of anything they did, but simply the Jets handing it to them, and that there was nothing really impressive with what the Patriots did.
Felger did call the Jets dead, which must’ve pained him after spending the last few years telling us how the Jets had passed the Patriots as an organization and how the Jets way of building a team was every bit as successful as the Patriots method.
We’re in the dark days, indeed.
The lack of faith that people continue to display in this team is mind-boggling at times.
So far we’ve hit every checkmark on the “How the Pats blow games against inferior teams during the Belichick-Brady era” blueprint.
Where does this come from?
By the time the third quarter rolled around the talking wags were already grousing about how much the Patriots were still throwing, and when they would take Tom Brady from the game. Expect more as the days go by.
Tom E Curran was a fun follow last night in all of this.
This is like when Cronkite came out against Vietnam. MT @albertbreer I’ll say it now — Brady shouldn’t be out there now. Unnecessary risk.
@albertbreer Your phrasing was funny…felt like a hefty proclamation. With a quill pen flourish.
Do these same people make these complaints when the Saints leave Drew Brees in throwing during the last minutes of a blowout win? Of course not. This is all about the Patriots and Bill Belichick and a chance to take a shot at them.
