hey kids-
so, the patriots beat the cowboys...and while i’m never going to argue with a win, this was one a lot less satisfying than I was anticipating considering i had to wait two weeks for it. i’m a little worried the dude at my bar who called me a greedy fan may have been right.
our fearless quarterback had a solid game after a slow start, going 20 of 27 for 275 yards and two touchdowns. much of this game felt like a flashback to last season’s long and slow and boring, so trust me when i say it looks a lot better on paper than it did in real life. luckily, winning looks a lot better in real life, and so does tommy – especially when he’s all fired up after a quarterback sneak for six. you spike that ball like you’re part gronk, tommy.

i was temped to give the tommy of the week to stephen gostkowski for not only nailing a 57 yard field goal, but for slicing every single point-after-touchdown kick right through the middle like it’s, you know, his job. apparently the rule change has created a lot of stress for kickers all across america except the ones who live in new england. however, stephen will have to continue to be consistently awesome, because julian edelman snatched this week’s tommy right of out the air along with his 59 yard bob-n-weave touchdown catch. i hear julian is getting quite a reputation for making girls scream, and I am now case in point. that play was easily the high point of this game. thanks for the oh-oh-oh, julian!

we play the colts next sunday, and i’m not gonna lie: i’m hoping for a bloodbath. after a summer of deflagate ridiculousness, i hope tommy comes on like gangbusters and shows the NFL what it really means to beat a dead horse. man- that dude at my bar was TOTALLY right. i AM a greedy fan. whatever. glue sticks for everyone!
have a great week, and go pats!

love dav
