The Patriots thoroughly waxed the Steelers last night by exploiting the flaw in Pittsburgh’s defense that leaves underneath and sideline shit open all day. This isn’t new; it’s something Dick LeBeau’s scheme has done for years and for some reason only New England has decided to consistently gameplan for it. Sure, the Saints did it a few weeks back so perhaps a top-flight quarterback has something to do with how easy those teams make it look.
Besides an otherwise dominating performance, Brady was playing up that “Yeah, so maybe I married a model and knocked out some kids and got a Bieber haircut and was complacent late last season, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still pretend I’m a badass now!” shtick he’s been doing at various points this year. Okay, Brady, we get it, you got a big win, but this “I’VE STILL GOT THE FIRE!” shit is just as much of an act as Favre playing up his ankle injury when he screws up. Dreamboat spiked the ball emphatically at the crowd after a TD run. Brady bitched out his teammates until he had to imposingly wipe the hair from his eyes after LITTLE FACKAH DANNY WOODHEAD failed to convert a 3rd and 3 in the second quarter. We get it, you’re not entirely checked out of the game yet. Now STFU.
