    Didn’t catch the beginning of BB’s presser. Hay in the barn or nah?

    He told Curran to let him know when the next game that doesn’t matter occurs.  Not sure of the entire context.

    Remembered to slip in the KC radio guys accusing the Patriots/associated scumbags of Foxboro of stealing equipment to my simmering cauldron of hatred.  Mix in a TOUCHDOWN CAN-ZA-CITY! call and it should bring it to a rapid boil.

    I had forgotten about that, as well. I couldn’t find any articles newer than mid-October, when the theft was said to have taken place. Nothing on the radio guy’s twitter, either. You would think there would be some comment out there, either thanking the police and stadium security for returning the stolen equipment and apprehending those responsible or complaining that it’s been 3 months with no progress. It’s almost like it never happened…

    From looking at Dan Israel’s twitter, I learned that there’s a Civil War Andrew Luck twitter account for Patrick Mahomes. If anything, it’s even less amusing than the original. 21k followers, though.

    He talked about nervousness before games so yeah I’d agree the subject matter wasn’t conducive to hay in the barn.  Michel had comments about preparedness and how it helps him feel more confident so there’s that.

    I’ve been listening to Craig and Larry doing errands the last few Saturdays. It’s really remarkable that this exists.

    It’s only remarkable until you realize they’re in a timeslot where nobody actually cares if anyone’s listening.

    I’m afraid to read the actual article.

    Getting paid in sheet cake probably doesn’t hurt either.

    The article focuses on the fact that Flores wants the job and will take the job, contrasting him with McDaniels and, before that, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, who used his supposed introductory press conference as head coach of the Jets to quit the job.

    When did Belichick interview for and agree to take the Jets job?

    That would be never. But asshole media gonna do their thing.

    I was just thinking today that one of the most famous things in football history – the Namath Guarantee – only happened because an athlete was frustrated and finally fed up with the gaping asshole sports media. That was 50 years ago and they certainly haven’t improved. That they’ve gotten worse is obvious.

    That’s a great point and I never thought of it that way. There was at least some justification for treating the Jets lightly prior to SBIII. The AFL was looked at as the inferior league and the first 2 Super Bowls were blow out wins by the original NFL teams.

    If you brought the media from the late 60s to today, they’d be confused why the media goes out of their way to criticize the best team/player/coach/dynasty of this era. Then someone would inform them of how hottakez work and they’d be saying things like “Tom Brady wouldn’t even be the third string QB on the ’66 Packers!” in short order.

    How can you call it complete storm team coverage with no TWL or TWL understudy?

    If it’s anything like it is now in Metro West at 6PM it would have been the worst weather game in Pats history had the game been in Foxborough.

    Wonder if the way they heat that field it would have stood up to this crap.   It’s raining ice!

    Jeff Howe’s piece on the Krafts buying the Pats is a good read.

    I have a very unhealthy hatred for many members of this Rams team for no real good reason.
