Return of the Patsies:
Things ain’t looking good
for the Pats. They don’t have answers
, and they’re going to be very, very lucky to make the playoffs. (By the way, a couple readers emailed me yesterday to ask why I didn’t post Ron Borges’ latest Drew Bledsoe puff piece on Sunday. It’s because I have willed my Must Win The Argument Gene into remission. I simply can’t and won’t stalk each and every one of Borges’ “I Love Drew” columns.) ... Some good sporting news: The Celts open their season
this week. Or at least I think it’s good news.
Reader No. 1's take on the Pats' loss yesterday:
"The game brought me back to the middle of Pete Carroll Year 2. It was not REMOTELY close! (I tuned out for long stretches so that my children could watch Scooby Doo.) The defense can't stop anybody anymore... shocking. And Belichick's decision to go for two at the start of the 4th was an incomprehensible momentum killer. Why not just put up on the message board: "You guys don't have a hope in hell of getting better than field goal range in the last 15 minutes of this game, so let's chip away at the edges and see what happens."
