Week 2: New England Patriots 13, New York Jets 10 (2-0) (Thursday, September 12, 2013)

Oh, 'twas an ugly win, my friends, and I don't mean the pouring rain in the second half.

The offense STUNK! The wide receivers are AWFUL! They got a gift with this schedule and playing two subpar teams, but even then it was a struggle to win. I don't know what they'll do against good teams.

Tom looked as if he wanted to walk off the field and go home. The frustration was there for all to see. The receivers are rookies but should show SOME improvement by now. It isn't just Week 2 for them. They've had mini-camps and training camp and pre-season games, but even though real games are very different, you're supposed to improve! Not run the wrong routes and not even turn around to see where your quarterback is throwing the ball! AND CATCH THE DAMNED BALL!!! There were more drops than at the candy counter last night. >:(

It is a DISGRACE that a Hall Of Fame quarterback is surrounded by these low-grade receivers. I hated them letting Wes go and if he was here, things would definitely not be as bad. His replacement, Delicate Danny Amendola, is a good player but it only took 'til the FIRST QUARTER of the FIRST GAME for him to be injured. He's an injury-prone player and will be out 2-6 weeks with a groin injury, and Shane Vereen can't return until eight weeks from now since he's on Injured Reserve With A Designation To Return. If Julian Edelman goes down, we're screwed.

Tom is 36 years old. Time is ticking away. GET HIM SOME WEAPONS!!!

At least the defense showed up with four sacks and three picks. And the Jets didn't cover themselves with glory with that scrum at the end with two of their players getting ejected.

Good thing the Jets' receivers are even worse otherwise we would have been in trouble!

Pats are now 2-0, Jets 1-1, and the Dolphins and Bills play this Sunday.

Next up: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers come to Gillette on September 22nd. Ten days to work a miracle!

Trust me, I am happy to be 2-0, but performances like these against the Bills and Jets just aren't going to cut it against the good teams. They'd better whip up something in those mad scientist labs down in Foxboro pretty quick! :)

This was probably one of the most painful Patriots games we have ever had to sit through. I know a win is a win and they don't give any extra points for style but STILL. This can't continue.

All I can say is 'thank God for the defense'. I hope the offense gets back on track and if the defense can continue playing on that level against other teams, maybe there is hope. But really, poor Brady. He was so frustrated and like you said, he deserves better than this.

It was just dreadful. And true to form, Danny Amendola has a major injury. He has torn adductors and may have a sports hernia, which will require surgery. Too bad he's an injury magnet. He's got talent and showed that in Week 1. Unfortunately, we need him on the field, not rehabbing.

That game was painful, indeed. Tom has a bit of an Irish temper, heh heh, and it showed. He knows he can't yell at the rookies again that much, at least in public, but I think he just blew his top. :)

I saw the clips from the Bills games and yeah, when he's healthy he's stellar but it's so sad that he gets injured so easily.

He knows he can't yell at the rookies again that much, at least in public, but I think he just blew his top. :)
After the year he's had, who can blame him? But I'm sure he won't do it again. After all, he knows that in the end, it really won't help.

I've decided you should write a fic that includes Brady winning his fourth ring. After all, you wrote that Avengers story before Thanksgiving last year, referencing the Pats/Jets last year and look how that game turned out! Maybe you have magical powers. Ssshh, no judging the desperate. XD

I still want Wes! :)

Tommy will be a good boy from now on. He's had his snit and he'll be better. He admitted that he couldn't do that all the time. He's a quick learner! ;)

LOL! I shouldwrite something! And I never judge a desperate sports fan. ;)

P.S. That Thanksgiving game is gold, Jerry, gold! The Buttfumble will live forever! ;)
