Thanks for coming along for the ride. It's been an entertaining season.
Avast, me Hearties! Hide your MILFs. Be doing yer job.
With the exception of maybe the 2007 team, this is the most talented Patriots team of the last 10 years. And unlike the last time this team was in the Super Bowl, they appear to be relatively healthy. I really hope they can cash one in.
Some or all of these guys will need to have big games on Sunday for the Patriots to win:
1) Tom Brady 2) Julian Edelman 3) Rob Gronkowski (and if Seattle sells out to take Edelman and Gronkowski away, Blount, LaFell and Amendola (gulp) will need to step up) 4) Darrelle Revis and 5) Chandler Jones / Rob Ninkovich.
And hopefully we end up somewhere under 37 pass interference flags on Brandon Browner.
That's pretty much it.
Did Michael Hoomanawanui have a catch last week?
I'm not going to pick a score here... But I'm cautiously optimistic. I think we have a chance.
This week we have Fake Matt Patricia filling for Fake Bill Belichick.
Hello Carbon Based Lifeforms. Hope this correspondence finds you warm and comfortable with a variety of snacks and craft beers readily available to you.
Is it my turn to do the write up this week? During Super Bowl week? Oh wow. That's a lot of pressure.
First... I hope we win on Sunday. Mostly for the team... But also because I think winning a Super Bowl as a coach and coordinator would be quite an exciting life experience to have.
But as excited as I am to be coaching in the Super Bowl this year, unfortunately it means I won't be hosting my own Super Bowl party on Sunday. I had so many good ideas for great cooking projects, you guys! I don't want to give anything away... but I was going to have two crock pots going.
Also... I should probably wrap up the Linder anecdote from earlier this season. If you remember, Josh McDaniels had tasked some of the tech boys with coming up with a combination career building dating smart phone application.
They checked in with me to see if this was OK. So we decided to have a little fun with the process.
In the test environment, we rigged it so that Josh got paired up with a shopped picture of himself in a wig and makeup every time. And wouldn't you know... he loved it!
We had a sensible chuckle at that.
McDaniels thinks he has a lunch date slash job interview scheduled with "Joshephina" on Tuesday. I'll let you know how that turns out.
Until next time...
