It’s an OutKast lyric, of course, and it’s the state of the Patriots. A Monday night embarrassment in which the Chiefs set a noise record, eclipsed only by the sound of Andy Reid saying “When you go to Mecca, you should be able to slide wherever you want.” Which was in response to
terrorist safety Husain Abdullah’s “prayer,” in which waters I care not to tread. Oh, hell, it’s a Tuesday, why not?
“If I get a pick, I’m going to prostrate before God in the end zone,” Abdullah said.
WHOA. Keep it to yourself, bro. What you do before an imaginary God is your business.
Back to the Patriots. Is Brady terrible? Is it the O line? Maybe the Mankins trade hurt? Or could it be the receivers? What about the defense? Where’s Revis Island?
Lots of opinions out there, especially about a 2-2 team tied for their division lead. In a division where one team has benched its QB, one team has threatened to bench its QB, and the other team will eventually bench its QB.
The last time the Patriots missed the playoffs was 2008. How many other teams can say that? ZERO. The Eagles just scored zero offensive points. The Packers offense has had one good game. The Broncos offense has had 2 good first halves and one good 58 seconds. The Seahawks have played one game where they looked like last year’s Seahawks. The best teams in football are the Cardinals and Bengals. Ready to crown their asses?! I’d hope not.
