Shocker: The Pats have no class

October 28, 2007

Leading 38-0 with nine minutes to play Tom Brady is still in the football game. He’s going deep and winging the ball all over the field. It’s fourth and 1 from the five yard line and Brady is motioning that they should go for it. Really? Because you do know that you’re up 38 points. . . Across the field Joe Gibbs wears an astonished look on his face. A hilarious mixture of fury and wonder.

Brady QB sneaks for the first down. He then throws a touchdown to Wes Welker to take a 45 point lead. The Patriots finally pull the offensive starters, but they continue to the throw the ball with backup QB Matt Cassel.

I am stunned at what I just saw. Did I imagine this?

UPDATED: Mike Freeman of Sportsline.com weighs in on this issue. Interesting stuff. I love how the Pats act so confused about what the proper conduct is in this situation:

When asked about the two fourth-down plays specifically, Belichick said: “What do you want us to do, kick a field goal?”

Well, yeah. When did that become a crime against humanity?

“It’s 38-0,” he added. “It’s fourth down. (We’re) just out there playing. (We’re) just out there playing.”

Brady to throw 40 touchdowns, save the world

John Clayton likes the Gonzalez pick. He sees the potential for an unstoppable offense.

Unfortunately he expects the same thing out of the Patriots. “Given Brady’s accuracy, it’s not out of the question for Brady to approach a 40-touchdown pass season and compete with Manning for passing records.”

That’s great John, but how about we aim for 30 touchdowns first, seeing as how Brady’s never thrown that many in his entire career? Personally, I think Brady will throw about 25 touchdowns (because he always does) and he will fall in love with Wes Welker. His new slot receiver will end up with about 85 catches, dwarfing the production of Moss and Stallworth.

How will Peyton do next year? Well, let’s just say he averages 30.5 scores a year over his career.
