    The 2018 Patriots season is over. The win over Houston was nice, but losing the Super Bowl to Jacksonville was a let down. At least the Celtics and Bruins are starting soon. There’s also, of course, postseason baseball, but we all know that will be a downer, too.

    I vaguely remember one season starting off .500 early. For the life of me, I cant remember how that season ended. Probably with a nut crushing loss when the dynasty was over.  :wall:

    Is George underselling himself or does he not know how decimals work?

    Bill should have traded Jimmy for 5 or 6 concussion-resistant defensive players. Some football genius he turned out to be.  :dry:

    Speaking of which, Garoppolo yesterday helped improve the Pats’ compensation for him, as the Pats have Detroit’s 2019 second rounder. He can do the same against the Bears (Pats own Chicago’s 2019 third) in December.

    Cain is a certified loon.

    What doesn’t make sense about his tantrum today is that I’ve seen him respond to, for example, anti-Felger & Mazz tweets and agree that their act is terrible. I thought that maybe Cain had turned a corner and had a better perspective on things. What he’s saying now is exactly what you would hear from F&M, Adam Jones, and the other media trolls. Or maybe that just proves that he’s loon.

    Chico’s post from Friday deserve a repost:

    Valuencers! Mount up![Joe G:]
    It was a monday or a tuesday in the afternoon
    Joey G was on the couch, trying to consume
    Some tacos for late lunch, grubhub app
    They’ll be here in 30, time to take a nap

    [Mrs. Gill:]
    Twelve hour shift, all on my feet
    My reward is to go home to Joey  G
    Watching old Bruins games on TV
    Have to make sure that our baby eats

    [Joey G:]
    So I switch the game from Fortnite to halo
    Tweens talking smack so I say “Fine, let’s go!”
    I load my clip, and said “What’s up?”
    Here wifey pulling in so I said “I’m stuck.”

    [mrs. Gill:]
    Walk in the house fucker’s got the nerve
    To ask me what time dinner’s being served
    Before I wring his neck have to find my child
    When I’m done on his ass Imma go buckwild

    [Joey G:]
    I’m wicked stahved, had to turn off my game
    I can’t believe she’s being so lame
    She cut my funds, we never had sex
    I looked at my wife and said “Damn, what’s next?”

    [Mrs. Gill:]
    The motherfucker don’t work and the house a mess
    He actually wants me to wear a Bruins dress
    If it wasn’t for the kid I’d go back to Laos
    Let him find another mail order spouse

    [Joey G:]
    She yellin’ all kinds of stuff
    I think I’m going down
    I can’t believe this happening in #titletown
    If I had skills I would work
    Let me think a bit
    I glanced at Linkedin and came up with this shit

    [Mrs. Gill:]
    100k in the bank, lawyer on the phone
    Mrs. Gill ’bout to leave this man-child alone
    Now he’s crying and yelling
    Doesn’t make no sense
    Make your own fucking money trying to valuence

    Also another way to make it in the workforce.

    1. Type in caps so they know you mean it
    2. CC your manager and their manager on all things whether your are ratting them out or not
    3. Tag all emails as high important whether its a sports score or a loss of a client
    4. Return Receipt all emails

    With Gill, there’s a part of you that wants to feel sorry for this sad sack and his unrelenting losing streak. For instance, when talking about his four layoffs (!), he said something like, “That’s just the reality in business now.” Nothing he was doing wrong, just the reality. Everybody gets laid off four times, right? It made me think of Larry Miller in “Best in Show”:

    “They all jump”

    I mean this poor, hapless, self-deluded guy. But at the same time he’s this self-entitled asshole who’s absolutely convinced he possesses this narrative delivery gift, and that this pretentious, awkward buzzword portmanteau is his rocket to riches. His self image is a tad overvaluenced.

    He called his discovery of the word an “epiphany”. I call it an “epiffleany”. Don’t use that, Joe; it’s trademarked.

    Didn’t know our friend lost his TJ Maxx telemarketer job (or whatever he was doing there).  Poor, hard-luck Joe.

    I saw Malcolm get beat good for a 40 yrd TD on the RedZone yesterday. Maybe Bill knows what he is doing after all. Still it’s the second time in the last 3 games that they have decided to sit Rowe down. :-(

    First 4 games of the season are always an extended preseason for Bill. If they play this bad in week #12 then its a problem. Otherwise its the same thing we’ve seen year after year recently yet somehow 90% of the fanbase doesn’t remember that.

    That gets me also. Did he ever have a “blue collar” job or is that his romantic idea of what a real worker is? I’m guessing no on the job because he’d probably be on permanent disability within 3 months if he ever had to wear a hard hat to work.

    Can’t keep doing that forever. One of these years, the rest of the division won’t be tomato cans and you won’t be able to just give up a couple games and expect to run away with the division caller. And when that happens, Bill the GM will have screwed Bill the coach.

    #129679

    The fact there’s such an overreaction to just one game shows there’s little consensus as to what the event will be that conclusively marks when the run is over.

    Cain says 10-6, but the Patriots won their division at 10-6 in 2009  (seen, along with 2002 and 2005, as the lean years since Brady became starter). So what will be the sign? Not making the playoffs?

    Every other team can have a down year without it turning into the apocalypse. Tomlin and Harbaugh have both had multiple 8-8 seasons (Harbaugh even had a 5-11 season) without people calling for their heads, but Belichick’s in danger if he goes 9-7?

    From my perspective, it’s been house money since 49. They can go 6-10 and I won’t bitch. There’s a ton of shit that can go wrong: injuries, luck, calls, players slowing down with age, etc. I look at their roster and see how they can win, and see how they can lose; It could break either way. But I’ve seen enough of Belichick’s teams to know September won’t tell us a damned thing.

    I will never bitch as long as Belichick is running the show.  I’ll always default to he is smarter and more informed than me.  I’m scheduling my first real meltdown for just after their appearance on Hard Knocks early next decade when Baby John breaks the douchemeter.  As an aside I just finished Big Game.  The only guy who comes off worse than RKK is Jerry Jones.  He’s even more drunk and obnoxious than we thought.  Board-approved giant tumblers of Johnny Walker Blue feature prominently.  On second thought maybe RKK is worse.  He’s every bit the phoney you all pegged him as over the years.   TB would be our most hated athlete if he wore a different logo.  I still give it an overall thumbsup I’d recommend it to the board.

    I’ve always loved Josh Gordon. I realize I’m in the minority on that but the guy has/had amazing talent. If they’ll take a flier on that fatfuck Albert Haynesworth they will take a try on anyone.

    Gordon was a terrific player. But it’s going to suck to root for him. He’s the kind of guy who will come in and ask Brady to change his jersey # so Josh can have it.

    I hated Moss before he came to NE. Then he became one of my favorite players. Granted its because they turned the NFL into a video game but whatever. If Josh sucks Bill will show him the door. If he doesn’t suck then hurray. First time he mouths off to Brady (which I can’t imagine ever happening) Gronk will pick him up and drop him on his head.

    Dez has to be like “Hey guys! Over here. Guys?”

    Gordon is on the books for $790K and the deal is up at the end of the year.   Dez would want more than that to answer the phone.
