I got an email from my friend Guy Damrosch (he comments here under the name Gehenna) last night after the Redskins game that sums up my thoughts better than I could:
“I think I’ve officially joined the Anti-Patriot camp. Good God they spanked us.
First, let me stress that they were a far better team and I give them total props for turning our stout defense into swiss cheese. They dominated us in every aspect of the game, and nothing I say after this will change the fact that they killed us and absolutely deserved to win.
That said, I wonder about the fact that we had no ability to communicate with our coach due to technical problems at the Patriots stadium. For about HALF of the game. It seems absurd to think that they would cheat since they obviously didn’t need it, but then again they hardly needed it when they were playing the Jets either. But lacking any evidence, I shall just grumble and wonder about sinister conspiracy theories.
One thing I’m sure of is…the Patriots are TOTAL COCKS.
I don’t say this lightly, but they really are a bunch of assholes. Tom Brady is having a conniption fit because his offensive lineman went off sides when they were already up by 40 points. And then, of course, the coach’s decision to go for it on 4th down in the 4th quarter when, again, they were winning 40-something to ZERO. I couldn’t believe what a jackass he was being. They thoroughly humiliated the team and coach I love, and they did it unnecessarily. They stepped on our necks and twisted. It hurts. It hurts a lot. And I’m not going to forget it. Maybe I should admire their ability to go for the jugular and finish off games (God knows the Skins need a little of that), but this was beyond the pale.
I really hope that karma bites them in the ass. They deserve it. TMQ was right. So it’s obvious that the Redskins won’t be the one showing them up, but I hope someone does. Right now, I’m not sure who I’d cheer for in a Cowboys-Patriots superbowl.
I’m off to go whimper and pretend like this never happened.
The only thing I could possibly add is that at least we play the hapless Jets this weekend.
