All this was on the news about the Patriots, and figured I’d condense it into one thread.

Patriots being congratulated for not allowing their total points on Sunday to go into the minus column.

Boston area TV repair shops are overwhelmed with requests to come out and fix broken TV screens.

Bill Belichick contemplating benching all the players, and instead letting the cheerleaders play in the next game.

Tom Brady seen today laughing uncontrollably for some reason.

Whoever said that piling on couldn’t be fun? 😉😉

    I stoped watching them when Brady was let go and billy boy kept.
    Colossal mistake !!
    Now I don't watch football at all and don't miss it.

    The Chiefs seem to be having an off year for them, at least thus far.

    Dolphins certainly have a good chance of representing the AFC in the Super Bowl.

    thank you for consolidating all of this important news into one place Steve. To point 3, attendence will definitely go up

    point 4, I heard Joe Montana has been contacted. it should be an improvement, he is only 67. I think he has 5 more games left in the old arm

    point 5, I have an offer of .40 in with Mr. Kraft. he and Jonathan are considering it currently

    point 7, I heard that Tommy was rushed to the hospital last night with severe stomach cramps. some would say for unceasing laughter that extended for over 6 hours.

    I believe we are currently at the number 2 pick with little kyler murray helping us out yesterday!!

    It’s a funny year in the NFL. I’ve seen strange things but I can’t remember some teams just being plan awful.
    I’ll never forget Mckays quote when his Bucs were 0-12 or something like that.

    The Patriots problem is obviously with the Defense. L.A. could only put up six points. You would think with all the 3 and outs the Pats offense have, the defense would be on the field well more than half the game. In all that time they couldn't come up with just one pick six, a scoop and score or maybe only 4 safeties.

    Four safeties would have been the solution in that game. 😆

    three safeties would have put us into overtime, then we could have fought for the tie!

    wait, I thought they were giving out $5 bills to get people in the turnstiles in hopes they would buy a couple of hot dogs during the "game"

    Let's see how funny it can get is my take on it.

    I really hope they don't score another TD this season. That would be epically hilarious

    I actually look forward to seeing Big Bill looking like a homeless person at the mic post-game explaining why they just can't score any points 😄😄😄

  • craig44craig44 Posts: 10,248 ✭✭✭✭✭

    it would be pretty comical if they didnt get into the end zone again until next season.

    Perhaps Belichick should provide his QB with a road map, so he might find his way to the end zone? 🤔

    nope, no one can even read a road map or atlas anymore. it would have to be gps coordinates so they wouldnt get lost :D

    I’m sure the NFL didn’t figure on the Patriots being one of the worst and clearly the dullest team in the league when they scheduled that Thursday Night game.

    Interesting this Thursday game. Patriots on the road versus the Steelers.

    Steelers are -5.5 - I would have thought it would be around -8.5 or -9 the way the Patriots have been playing. That being said, I've seen this before, when a very bad NFL team has an awful game at home, they go on the road, away from the jeering home fans, and then actually play better football. My guess is that's what the bookies are thinking as well.

    So I think the Patriots may play better on Thursday, perhaps better than expected, but that's not saying much. If the Patriots team and Belichick have any respect for each other left in them, I think they've got a chance at an upset here. If not an upset, a very close game.

    it's because Pittsburgh lost Pickett last week and played like New England with Trubisky in

    they got rolled up by the Cardinals

  • perkdogperkdog Posts: 29,196 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The worst two offenses in the league facing off. Could be a tie at 0 and finish at 0 after OT

    Then would they do a coin flip to see who's the winner? 😁

    They should have just done that at the start of the game. 😂

    That makes sense.

    I had just looked at the Steelers record of 7-5, and the fact that they are still in the playoff hunt, which in theory should give them good incentive to win this game.

    But I'm gonna still stick with my call. Which ain't worth nothing more than a gob of warm spit, and I misspelled spit. 😆

    Steelers now at -5. The whales saw my pick and are jumping all over it.

  • stevekstevek Posts: 27,451 ✭✭✭✭✭

    What did I tell ya? Patriots already score with a nice touchdown drive to start the game. Playing fast and loose, and relaxed being on the road.

    Whether they can sustain this or not for the entire game, I have no idea?

    I have no skin in the game, so however it goes, I really couldn't care less. But good luck to ya whichever way you went.
