This would be a great week to win 42-0, with Brady getting lots of time to throw to Harry and Meyers while Edelman rests in the second half.

Let's have an easy one, please. Push these assholes around and build some momentum.

I'm going to be on a plane to Houston from around mid-2nd quarter on. I really don't want to board that flight with this game tighter than it should be and spend the whole time wondering what happened.

Get the wifi and follow on SoSH. It will be an accurate and measured following of the game for ya.

I want the O to gel some more and sort of the blocking issues and the D to lower its ppg against average. Im more optimistic the D will meet my goals.

Have you watched any games this season? Because what you don't want is what has happened in almost every game, and will likely happen again, even against the Bengals. Enjoy the flight.

How did the Seahawks almost lose to this team? Bills as well now that I look

While I can't see them humiliating the Bengals with a 40-point win, I'll accept some sack celebrations with the Pats mimicking cameramen as a poke at their organization for dragging them this week.

Green has been inactive but on the 53-man all year, right?

Pretty illustrative about how few fucks they give that they’re carrying the guy on the 53-man for no apparent reason.

EDIT - Hot take WAG on Wynn: pink eye.

I look forward to the gamethread meltdown when the low percentage fade is thrown on 3rd down to the rookie that has seen 7 snaps in 2.5 quarters.

Harry has looked good in his tiny sample thus far, to my eyes. He stepping up (and Brady believing in him) is one of the more likely paths to offensive improvement imo.

Today is the perfect game to show off. Especially since we know their signs.
Well if the damn guys had gotten the tape out of the stadium. They were busted by the crack Bengals security team that was watching for 8 minutes while it happened.

maybe it is still in NFL HQ and the Pats can organize a heist - caper a la Oceans 11.
We dont have Danny Ocean but Derek Rivers is another water themed name and he has done jack shit otherwise.

If their faces hadn't gone in opposite directions of pudginess, Brady would be dead ringer for Damon there. Sadly Matt doesn't seem to be in on TB12 diet.

The tape and team that were caught were doubles.

The real tape was securely delivered to BB and the football ops. Ernie has created the ultimate plan against the Bengals.
