If they don't resign Butler, I'll be somewhat upset.
Captain Power Rankings:
2) Horatio McCallister (Simpsons Sea Captain)
6) & Tennille
Good win on the road last week, but I still feel like this team isn't quite great. Too many holes on defense.
Here's three things I'll be watching this week as I digest everything I ate this weekend.
1) Malcolm Mitchell - With Gronk and Hogan out with injuries, Malcolm Mitchell had a chance to shine. And he did! 98 yards and a touchdown. It sure would be nice if the Patriots could draft and develop a real NFL level WR for a change. It's been a while.
2) Julian Edelman - Edelman had a very good week last week, but it still feels like he's not quite 100%. Watch him after the catch. He doesn't seem to have the same explosiveness.
3) Tom Brady - Tom Brady is a wizard.
FREE AGENT WATCH: Has Malcolm Butler,
Did Malcolm Mitchell have a catch last week? Yes! (See above)
My prediction: Pats 31, Jets 21
This week we have Fake Matt Patricia filling in for Fake Bill Belichick.
Hello Carbon Based Lifeforms.
How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was great, thanks for asking! I think I ate a whole pie myself.
I enjoy eating... So it's not big surprise that I also enjoy cooking. Makes sense, right?
I was the guy in the college apartment who could cook.
One time I took the leftover ribs, some vegetables and eggs and made a super good pork ramen dish the next day. The roommates were amazed!
The next week, they expected me to do it again. But this time... there wasn't nearly as much to work with.
"Well I could... But you guys already ate all the leftovers."
That's what it feels like coaching the defense this year. Not much left for ingredients.
I love Coach Bill. I would never criticize him. But GM Bill... I gotta admit... Sometimes I wonder what the plan is.
Until next time...
