    Darnold’s 3.6 QB Rating is the lowest allowed by a BB Pats defense besting the previous mark of Kerry Collins 4.9 from 2009 in the game that the Pats won 59-0 and Collins had -7 total passing yards.

    4 of the top 21 best QB Rating against have happened in the first 7 games this year.

    1st Darnold 3.6

    6th Fitz 23.8

    7th Allen 24.0

    21 Jones 35.2

    Ran a minute and a half off the clock without a snap – the competition committee has been alerted. :lol:

    In total, 90 seconds elapsed between the Patriots’ third- and fourth-down snaps.

    This is staggering. :ohmy: Being 56 percentage points better than the rest of the league? That’s better than that Ravens and Bears teams combined.

    On a different topic than the Patriots Monday night win and Sanu, I came across an interview yesterday with former defensive back Donte Whitner on a NBC Sports affiliate in DC. The main topic of the clip was Whitner criticizing former Redskins coach Jay Gruden and his staff. What stood out to me, though, was one host was wearing a Nationals cap and sweatshirt and another was wearing a Nationals knit cap. (There was a third host, but he was wearing a fleece jacket with the station logo.) If I tuned into any EEI or Sports Hub show prior to the World Series, Super Bowl or Stanley Cup and saw two of the hosts wearing Red Sox, Patriots or Bruins gear, I would assume they had lost a bet, this was the payoff and they’d never that hat/jersey/sweatshirt at work again. It’s surreal to see the sports talk shows in other markets have a rooting interest in the local team.

    Remember, people only tune in to to those shows to see / learn from Coach Craig.

    Plus you have a more pass centric league now which makes it even more nuts.

    It would have been great if, after the Jets declined 2 intentional penalties, the Patriots sent the offense back on the field and converted the 4th down. Then again, it’s probably too much to ask after a 33 point road shutout that included 4 interceptions.

    it’s like Pedro ’99 vs Koufax ’68.  Fucking Derek Carr has completed 74% of his passes this year

    I actually thought they were going to do just that when Bill was sort of smirking. Could they really get a 15 yard penalty for continuing to do that as was mentioned? Is that really a rule? And if so, would it have been all bad since they wanted to move back anyway?

    Can’t find an exact rule but I’m sure there’s an unsportsmanlike conduct for doing that. Two consecutive delay of game penalties is.

    The 2nd one was a false start. Couldn’t they have just accidentally kept false starting as that does happen in real life situations. How do the refs know when they are or aren’t doing it on purpose.

    Also lost in this was just awful the reffing was last night. The only way the Jets moved the ball at all were odd strings of penalties against that Pats that we saw maybe 50% of the replies of.

    I think I might have read the same words in a Yelp review of an artisanal North End eatery recently.

    Pats’ defense is being dissed because “they haven’t played any decent offenses.”  It was a different season and all, but what about the Rams and their world’s greatest offense in the Soupey?  And what they did to the Chiefs at Arrowhead in the first half of the AFCCG? How soon people forget.

    The last bad HALF of football that the defense has played was the second half of the Chiefs game.  16 great halves of football since.  There is a Ringer story on how the Pats defense has broken fantasy football.

    So sign a recently cut Pro Bowl special teamer and release Jordan Richards who they signed for special teams a couple of weeks ago, what’s not to like?  I’m sure the local radio men will have plenty.  Or maybe they’re taking ‘Schefty’s’ talking points about Brady’s contract and running with that.

    Day late but isn’t getting Sanu because you don’t trust the defense backwards? You know you have a really good one so you go all in to make sure something else doesn’t blow your chances?

    “They’re not afraid of YOU.  They’ve come up to Foxborough and PUNCHED YOU IN THE MOUTH.  TWICE IN THE PLAYOFFS SO FAR!  Their QB should scare YOU more than Mahomes does!  What makes YOU think YOU can stop him? And their D may not have Lewis or Reid or Suggs but THEY WILL COME AFTER YOU!”

    Don’t want to see anyone hurt – but I’m happy it blows up all the stooorrylinez around Mahomes and Rogers going head to head on Sunday night.

    Nah, I am thinking if Mahomes is at all ok to go and will take the field Sunday.   The marketing value to him showing up and playing is off the charts.  It could go down like Favre’s dead father game, or one of those several times Rodgers came back from the dead.   Plus, you have Collinsworth readying his fainting couch to slobber all over both QBs.      I have to believe his agent it telling Mahomes to get out there if there is any way he can.   Plus, State Farm must be furiously masturbating about the chance to run those annoying Rodgers/Mahomes/State Farm agent commercials with both of them playing.
