Tom Brady only threw the ball 53 times last night as he used Blue Steel to freeze the Bills defense and make a miraculous comeback by throwing two TD’s to Ben Watson in about .3 seconds. Ben Watson! That guy is the biggest TE tease and I will never pick him up. Let some other schmo drop someone of value for Watson who will have zero catches against the Jets next week.
I’m a fan of good football and Tom Brady can throw the ball. That back shoulder strike to Watson in the back of the end zone was awesome. The Patriots didn’t look unstoppable, but it will be hard to beat Brady in a close game. He needs to get beat down and beat down often to have a chance against him.
After the game Suzy Kolber was brushed aside by Brady, but she persevered and ran with him toward the locker room, but then was blindsided by Giselle, who, even pregnant, weighs 34 pounds.
LT: He seemed to be doing a whole lot of nothing on the sidelines when the game was on the line. He wasn’t horrid, but compared to Sproles he looked like he was going in slow motion, but so would about anyone except Usain Bolt or that kid on The Incredibles or someone really, really fast. But it did look like a time share last night, and I’m not too optimistic that LT will be anywhere worth where he went in drafts. Yes, I had him up there too. That kool aid is tasting bitter.
Philip Rivers: Well, they beat the Raiders and they looked pitiful doing it. The Raiders D manhandled the Chargers which I’m not used to saying about the Raiders D. Rivers looked a bit like a douche canoe as usual, but not as bad a Kanye West so at least he has that going. Rivers didn’t look great, but neither did most of the Chargers. I’d worry more about the injuries to his lineman.
Trent Edwards: He had 2 TD’s and 212 yards with no picks. The no picks are a good sign. The Patriots aren’t the best defense in the league, but they aren’t the worst either. Edwards isn’t really fantasy worthy yet, but it’s a good sign.
Fred Jackson: The guy is quick. If the Bills can keep a semblance of a O-line together they could be a potent offense with Lynch and Jackson teaming up. Of course that sucks for fantasy, but hey, we hardly ever get what we want anyway.
Darren McFadden: He is fast and good and if Russell wasn’t as accurate as your Grandpa around the can after a few snorts he’d have had a huge game. Michael Bush looks to be the goalline back which makes me unhappy.
Louis Murphy: The rookie should have had 2 TD’s, but did have one long TD to put the Raiders up late. He’s worth keeping an eye on, but Russell is really not a good QB which is usually helpful if you are a receiver.
