Best trade one game in EVAR?

 

/That said, you paid too much. 

No doubt. But it was the best I could get and I think Jordan Howard blows.

Hightower's replacement, Cassius Marsh, has black crosses tattooed under his eyes? What is that?

EMO AS FUCK.

How much did you pay for him? I don't think he blows, but that offense is going to blow.

Okay, how is Kool-Aid man going to fuck this up? We all know it's going to happen, it's just a matter of how and when.

I am pretty concerned about Howard, I was really hoping I could drag Gordon out of Jace instead. 

It looks like I'm going to have to start starting Hunt, who I got last round, in my work league...

DG - not sure about the crosses, whether he's religious or not (I've never seen him mention it), but I'm a fan of the dude, he plays a lot of Magic the Gathering and seems like a reasonable human being. However, he's a D-end who can hybrid to some OLB in a pinch, there is no universe in which he should be covering a speedster in the passing game downfield.

Well, the Patriots pass defense against long passes leaves much to be desired.

A worried hush falls over Gillette Fusion Pro Shield FlexBall Turbo Razor Stadium over here....

No pass rush tonight at all.

I had an option on the table I would have taken before giving up Gordon, you were never getting him from me.

Wow, that's nice perspective on a new player, thank you.

It's no question he's suffering from being behind in preparation. I hope he can pick things up quickly in the coming weeks, especially with Hightower's injury history.

Hard to properly judge a discombobulated defense, but I've barely seen offseason pickup David Harris except behind some running plays. Lots of people talked like it was another thumb in the Jets' eye, but maybe they actually knew more than Belichick this time.

Chiefs looking pretty good - Pats not so much.

 

Hope that Berry is ok - one of the best guys in the league.

May have been a nail in the coffin play by Mitchell there. Great pass defense there.

 

Also, I hate Kareem Hunt. He looks very good.

Horrible defensive breakdowns by the Pats. Loving this. If this game is any indication, this is going to be a great season.

This isn't that different from how they looked in 2014. Brady was worse that night.

Now the Patriots offensive line is starting to get beat.

Pretty sure I heard the Tomahawk Chop over there. Wasn't that 2014 game in KC though?

 

 

/Most lopsided home loss for the Pats in what, at least a half decade?

I'm practically dictating the topics to Michaels here.

Just don't get any more guys hurt. Even the punting sucks. On to a shootout in New Orleans. Have fun with Hunt, AFC West.

So any chance we get a good game tonight? I'm looking at you, Andy Reid...

Sooo to go back to this and eat my own words: yes, absouteo. Of the HIGH scoring kind! Wow.

I'm not sure Hunt is the story here. He didn't start to really click until after Alex Smith burned the Pats twice deep. (Granted one of those was to Hunt)
