After a 3 - 0 start, we're playing our first real team of the season this week (sorry Bills fans). The schedule gets a lot more challenging over the next few weeks. Everybody hold on to your butts.
The "Gronkowski is back" rumors are heating up this week. Eh. I'll believe it when I see him on the field. Until then, he's Keyser Soze. ("Nobody believed he was real... Nobody ever saw him or knew anybody that ever worked directly for him...")
Last week I referred to Rob Ninkovich as a "gem". This week, he got a three year contract extension. Coincidence? Yes, probably.
Bill is super excited for Sunday's game, you guys.
How are the new WRs working out so far?
Catches per game:
|Week 1||Week 2||Week 3|
But getting... better... I guess? (Better-ish? That's a word, right?)
LeGarrette Power Rankings:
(I couldn't find any other LeGarrettes out there. Sorry.)
Here are five guys who have showed up on game day this year:
1) Alfonzo Dennard - Looks like he might really be a football player. They may have finally hit on a corner in the draft! Let's hope the off the field issues don't become a recurring problem.
2) Vince Wilfork - The Big Man has been seeing a lot of double teams so far this year. He still makes everyone around him better.
3) Chandler Jones - Three sacks in 3 games so far this season. I love this guy.
4) Devin McCourty - I greatly prefer Devin McCourty the safety to Devin McCourty the cornerback.
5) Julian Edelman - Officially the all time NFL leader in punt return average. Holy crap.
5A) Tyroil Smoochie-Wallace - Undrafted practice squad d-line player. Hopefully he'll see some game day action this season.
Did Michael Hoomanawanui have a catch last week?
Two catches, in fact.
My prediction: Pats 24, Falcons 28
My prediction (Season): 10 - 6
This week we have Fake Josh McDaniels filling for Fake Bill Belichick.
What up, Bros and Lady Bros?
We're off to a hot start.
Is the offense getting better every week?
Damn right it is.
See? Josh can fill out a roster. Josh is ready to shop for the bro-ceries.
But Brady is still being Mr. Cranky Pants behind the scenes, though. He misses his Welker binky. He was in my office complaining again all week.
TB: What are we doing here? This team sucks. I only have 5 touchdowns so far!
JM: We're winning games, aren't we?
TB: I want Wes back. Can't we bring him back somehow? We spent 2 hours on the phone last night tell each other how much we miss each other.
JM: That train has sailed. Bill's pissed at him for some reason. He's Peyton's bitch now. Get over it. The offense will get better. It's still a work in progress. Besides... We're running the ball better these days, aren't we?
TB: So what?
JM: So what?! Obviously, Josh loves the ALL OUT AERIAL ATTACK, too. "Throws before hoes" is what I always say. But if you can run the ball well, it makes it easier to air it out, right?
TB: OK... I guess.
JM: And we'll even have Gronk back for you soon enough. See? It's going to be OK.
TB: Oh Josh... You know I can't stay mad at you. Here... Have a pair of Uggs.
As soon as he left my office, I brought the Uggs out to the dumpster (if I just throw them in the trash, the cleaning staff puts them back on my desk). That's the third pair he's tried to pawn off on me this month. Stop making fancy boots for bros trying to happen! It's not going to happen!
Until next time... take it easy, Brahs.
JAY MICK DEE OUT.
(Also... Nobody tell Josh what happens on the final episode of Breaking Bad. I'm not going to get to watch it until Monday morning. GATORADE ME BITCH!)
