What We Learned Week 11

Via USA Today

Hello people and welcome to another addition of What We Learned!

Already Week 11 and I’m swimming in school, work, pressure… but whatever! No excuses baby and that’s what it’s all about. From the best game ever, to the Colts getting their groove back after a few years. The Eagles officially blow, and the unfortunate Alex Smith injury, let’s jump into it!

Who to Watch (November 16 – November 22)

What a week, huh? Jimmy Butler is traded.  Melo is sent to Siberia.  Draymond calls KD a bitch and to GTFO.  We love the NBA around here.

There was intrigue with the NFL too.  Brady looks… human.  The game of the year needs to move from Mexico City to Los Angeles (have you guys SEEN that field!? Horrible).  Le’Veon Bell will not come back this season, at which point his teammates decided to take his stuff (finders keepers, right?)

As fascinating as the off the field/court news is, we’ll keep on how the players are playing.  Lets see what Fredy, Andy, Kerm, and Nick are thinking…

OH! And an EARLY Happy Thanksgiving from us here at the Hold My Drink Sports team!

Patriots Add Two Players to the Roster During their Bye Week

It looks like the Patriots are making some changes to the roster on defense. I honestly have low expectations; one is a rookie and the other hasn’t done much this season. Mid-season additions don’t always work out the best, unless you somehow become loved in New England like James Harrison did last year (what the fuck was that?). What can we expect from these additions? Continue reading “Patriots Add Two Players to the Roster During their Bye Week”

Trouble in Paradise?

I just want to make something clear REAL quick.  The definition of “trouble” for New England is unequivocally different than anywhere else.  Since Tom Brady started his first game for the New England Patriots in 2001, the team has only missed the playoffs twice, and in one of those years (2008), Brady was injured in Week 1, and did not play the rest of the season.  That’s 15 playoff appearances in 17 seasons.

Another way of looking at it? In that same amount of time, the Buffalo Bills have made the playoffs once, and lost their only playoff game in the Wild Card round.

Nevertheless, after losing 34-10 to the Tennessee Titans, things are not going as good as they should, and I think it needs to be talked about.
