Watching NBC Sports Boston. Matthew Fairburn is now a Pats reporter for the Athletic. The narrative this week is the Pats already won this game. Matt Jones is miles ahead of Josh Allen. Bills are a soft team because they'd rather pass than run. Think we are the "greatest show on turf" but we play is cold sloppy Buffalo.

 

Humility isn't exactly a trademark of the BB Patriots.

The national sports media and their display over how they are slobbering all over New England this year after one 6 game winning streak just puts the stamp on what we all knew for decades: They have some odd, strange and twisted fascination with this franchise and they crave their success so much it is almost toxic.

 

These same folks are chomping at the bit to dismiss Buffalo in any way shape they can. The media likes things to be a 'certain way' They want the same old teams that have the most followers on Twitter to be the best to:

 

1. Make their jobs easier

2. Get the most clicks

3. Rile up other fan bases to get even MORE clicks.

 

This is how they operate, and will always operate. Little engines that could like small market Buffalo will always have to really outshine ones like New England. These are the cold, hard facts. Embrace it. Relish in the role. And ignore them. Completely.

To all of these fools on ESPN, NFLN etc saying they would rather have Mac Jones than Josh Allen, you are out of your ever loving minds!!!

 

Willie McGinist just said  Mac Jones is a better QB and Allen will struggle because the Pats* D is so good. Are you freaking kidding me?!  I knew w he is a Pats* homer, but C’mon Man!!

Haha! I heard a similar take earlier on NFL Live. They must’ve all gotten the memo on how to dismiss us as a soft, pass happy team.

What do you expect from a New England based reporter? The Bills weaknesses are on both sides of the lines. They got manhandled on the lines vs Pitt, Tenn, Colts, and Jags. The "soft" label isn't a unfair statement. We will see if the Bills can she'd this label and beat the Pats.

McGinist was a great player - but he's a pure homer.

 

Bruschi is the same.  Those guys should watch former players like Aikman & Simms - I can watch them commentate on games w/ their former teams & I'd never know they played for those teams.

But to extent aren't most of us "homers?"

I didn't find this Fairburn clip or article talking about how the Pats already won this game - is that Fairburn's take?  He's dead to me anyway.

 

But I did find this Fairburn (and others) article about Bill Belichick which is legitimately funny

 

https://theathletic.com/2889665/2021/10/29/its-fun-at-gunpoint-the-comedy-stylings-of-bill-belichick/?source=emp_shared_article

Quote

Bill Belichick has been called many things during his 22 seasons as the Patriots coach: a genius, a grouch, the GOAT. But funny? Just wait until you read the stories from 15 of his former players …

Ross Tucker, offensive lineman: He’s definitely an #######. And he’s definitely hilarious.

 

Quote

Jed Weaver, tight end: Onterrio Smith … got caught with the Whizzinator in his bag. He was the running back from Minnesota. But Bill is reading the article: “It says here that he didn’t know he had a fake dick in his bag because one of his friends put it in there before he got on the plane. So all you ***** #######s, when you’re coming back for training camp, make sure you check your bag before you get on your plane. Make sure none of your buddies put a fake dick in your bag.”

 

At one point, this season Allen was leading the league in batted balls.  Maybe they need to send Webb after him with tennis rackets:

Quote

Mesko(punter): It was 2012, the year J.J. Watt was just swatting people’s passes. He had so many batted balls. We’re playing them and he’s like, “Alright, Zoltan, come over here after special teams.” I get in the defensive huddle. It’s 7-on-7 so there’s no linemen there. He’s like, “Here, take these two tennis rackets and I want you to hit Brady’s ball into the stands if you can. I don’t care.” So I’m jumping up and touching like 12 feet and swatting Brady like 10 yards when I could.

Fletcher: It was really pissing Brady off.

Mesko: Man, when I got him, Belichick was crying on the inside, like tears of joy. Brady would be like, “Zoltan, please don’t knock this one down.” Belichick was like, “No, no, I’m going to pay you 100 bucks every time you swat that ball.”

Fletcher: It got to the point where Brady would pay $150 not to do it because Brady was getting so pissed.

Mesko: And Belichick paid up after every practice. He came with the cash.

Yes, but most of us are not NFL analysts. He SHOULD try and analyze the teams rather than state opinion as fact. 

NFL analysts get paid to give their opinions. I don't think they represent their opinions as facts. I believe that's people's intepretation especially if they don't like or agree with the so called analyst.

Fairburn is a traitor.

Aikman is the biggest Cowboy homer EVER!  He cheers for them every time he does one of their games it’s disgusting.  What’s worse is he is a color commentator.. so we get him all game.. Bruschi and and McGinist is maybe halftime for a few minutes.

Sounds like a salary cap violation...

Make Mac jones pass. Please mcdermott, put 8 in the box and make sure the run doesn’t beat us. Don’t get stubborn with the nickel defense 

New England is going to run the ball heavily, and make little dump-off passes all night long for 4-6 yards.  

 

BB will also figure out who our absolute worst DB is on the field post Tre injury, and throw at him as much as possible.

 

We better have some plans in place, and be ready to switch out of them quickly if/when they don't work.
