    I think there's some truth to this and I don't know why people are questioning you. After the Ravens jumped out to the big lead there's simply no reason for the Pats to reveal plans for later in a game they're probably not going to win and won't really matter that much at the end of the season. Belichick has played the long game like this many times before, especially since 2007 when they maybe showed the Giants a little bit too much insight in their first meeting. 


    It was definitely my initial thought. I didn’t watch the game until the second quarter when it was 17-7 Ravens, so I can’t speak for how they played in the first quarter, but the Patriots defense seemed way more conservative than usual.

    Fair enough. I guess I meant “pouting” or otherwise unhappy. Point still stands.


    Well, he is an elite athlete who has dedicated his life to winning, so I don’t really think anybody in his position wouldn’t be “unhappy” to lose. Chance I might be misinterpreting your post, however.

     

    I know it won’t be a popular take, but Brady is usually most upset at himself for losses. Not his defense, not his receivers, not the refs. He’s a regular on the morning radio show on WEEI after each game and the script is usually the same: praises the other team, praises his defense, points out what he can personally improve upon.

     

    Baltimore played fantastic tonight, though, and that cannot be understated.

    When Tom Brady is mad, America is happy. 


    By today’s standard, I think “mad” would be threatening to kill people who @ you on Twitter. I don’t think Brady is at that level just yet.
     

    Good game by Baltimore. Can’t win them all. Hopefully the Patriots can get them again in the playoffs. We’re onto Philadelphia (after the bye!)


  4. The defensive play calling for the Patriots tonight is...interesting. I don’t think they’re playing for a win tonight. I think they’re playing to not give the Ravens much film to study in the event of a playoff matchup.

    You’re welcome. There are like one or two consistently bad ones here, then a few who rarely post. Most Pats fans here are level-headed, or are at the very least self-aware. I’d also argue that Pats fans in the wild can get very terrible. Freehernandez.jpg is my evidence.


    The problem with most Pats fans is:

     

    A.) they don’t understand why other fans dislike their franchise and

    B.) they have a fascination with other people NEEDING to recognize Brady as the “GOAT.”

     

    Personally, I do understand why fans hate the Patriots franchise and I don’t care if you think Brady is or isn’t the ”GOAT.”

    You know their response:

    We have a few good ones (@Brass, @Pharos04, and @speedy), but most are utter chodes. 


    Much appreciated for the kind words. Are there any consistent bad Patriots fans here or were you referring to Pats fans in general? Most seem levelheaded here, but then again, I don’t read every post.

    It started turning into manure in 2001 when the league started fixing the sport for the Patriots. If you put the rosters that they have had (including the overrated Tom Brady) the last 19 years in Cleveland without Belichick, Kraft, and Ernie Adams, they wouldn't have won a darn thing.


    El. Oh. El.


  8. By the way, do people go to baseball games anymore to...you know...watch baseball? I was at Fenway yesterday, and while I understand it was a meaningless game standings-wise, it seemed as if most people were entirely disconnected from the game.

     

    Plus, the extinction of basic fan etiquette at a baseball game is official. Yes, I am a little irritated you keep needing to get up for food during an at-bat.


  9. The current Red Sox ownership has been the absolute best and absolute worst thing to ever happen to the franchise.

     

    Cant complain that much though. Won a title last season. Down year this year. Oh well. They’ll bounce back.

    I'm in my hometown of St. Louis for some much needed vacation and family time. (Oh, and I'm seeing Cage the Elephant and Beck on Tuesday night!) I stopped by Plato's Closet today (or, I guess yesterday, as it's currently 1AM) and was pumped to have found these two brand new hats for $8 a pop. I'm pretty sure I let out an audible gasp followed by a quiet "yes!" when I saw the North Stars cap. Also, tax free weekend. So, not a bad first day of vacation.

     

    Have you ventured to Avalon Exchange on the Delmar Loop before? Scored a '96 Grant Hill All-Star jersey for $15 there about four years ago. Usually have a steady stream of 90's jerseys, Starter jackets, and REO Speedwagon concert tees!

    I'm a proud owner of a Messier Canucks, Redden Senators, and Yashin Islanders.

     

    They were cheap, and I think they're amazing sweaters to wear for fashion purposes.

     

    I wouldn't consider a Redden Senators jersey bad. Now, a Redden Rangers jersey on the other hand...
