    The blue collar guy in a white collar job line always cracks me up.

    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.

    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.

    Once Gordon signs, the narrative of potential substance abuse relapse begins.

    ‘Sawr him at a restaurant drinking wine”

    ‘Started a fight at my VFW”

    “Hangs out with one of Odin Lloyd’s friends”

    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.

    Whoa.

    Man, I thought no fucking way. Thought he didn’t love the game enough for Belichick’s taste.

    Saturday, 9:05 AM:  Larry Johnson saying he’d like to reach out to Josh Gordon pays $2.10.

    Hopefully he can do the end around play better than Cordarelle Patterson.

    Keep him away from Chandler Jones’ synthetic weed dealer.

    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?”

    Dez was good in 2013 too, the last time Gordon was good.

    Worth a flier for little return because why not? I’m just not expecting much.

    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.

    If the Josh Gordon thing is real, my reaction is based on the compensation.

    Conditional 7th: Awesome! Great Move!

    5th or 6th: OK, that’s fair.

    4th or higher: WTF?!

    I believe he is under control for 2 years, both at low dollars. I’d pay a 4th – they have extra 2 and 3 next year.

    Worth a shot. He would be a restricted free agent next year.

    @jimmysSeafood isn’t a fan of someone whose time working in Baltimore ended on a sour note.

    Also, where is Chico’s song parody from?

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.
