I was talking to Fredy about this recently, and he made a good point in saying that people won’t appreciate him until he’s gone. Even at 42, people are holding him to the standard of being the greatest day-by-day, as if he hasn’t already proved it with the greatest body of work for one career in the history of the game.
Thank God I’m just a bandwagon Bruins fan because that list would have devastated me! Listen, I love sports as much as the next guy but hockey isn’t for me. Maybe next season that’ll change and I’ll understand the game more. But as of now, what should be a kick in the nuts 4-1 loss in a Game 7 feels like a love tap for now.
In this post, I’ll be joined by fellow writer Nick. We’ll be discussing things to look forward to (unless your a Red Sox fan) this summer. Yes, Boston just won 2 championships, but the grind doesn’t stop and neither do we! Let’s get this bad bitch rolling.

Reports are surfacing this week that Tom Brady has a knee injury that is significantly setting him back. Brady was listed on the injury report prior to the Jets game last month, and reporters are citing certain film as evidence that the injury is effecting his gameplay. Brady has played throughout injuries his entire career, and as much as we joke about the TB12 method, we have to acknowledge that he is one tough SOB. I do not expect Brady to sit due to this injury, but at 41, can we expect him to play around it to the level the Pats need to make a playoff run?
It’s getting painful for this Patriots die hard fan, and it’s time to start getting brutally honest. I held out saying this following the Miami game, because I liked what I saw there. Sure, the Miami Miracle was horrible, but Brady played his best game of the season, Gronk looked like his old self, and Edelman was making great plays. After today, I cannot defend this team for what we expect it to be: a Super Bowl contender; that alone means something is wrong, and at 9-5, assuring we will not win at least 12 games for the first time since 2009, it’s officially time to say something is wrong.
If you noticed it under a flurry of penalty flags, the New England Patriots beat the New York Jets yesterday, moving to 8-3 on the season.
Sometimes there’s small moments that occur in a game that end up making or breaking an entire season, a moment where a team either finds its way, or completely loses it. It may end up being inconsequential, but to me, the Patriots found themselves yesterday.
