well kids-

i'm thankful that the patriots won, but i was not very impressed by the manner in which they did it. this game was a flurry of activity at the beginning and a flurry of activity at the end, with a long stretch of boringness in the middle and i don't understand why tommy didn't have 11 touchdowns. however, after being regaled by my sister with statistics and investigating the box score for myself, it is possible i have unreasonable expectations. this should surprise no one.

our fearless quarterback actually had a pretty crackerjack day, going 24 of 40 for 280 yards and four touchdowns. this was apparently tommy's first career game in san francisco, which is hilarious - because i totally saw the pats play when i lived in SF and have ZERO recollection that i actually saw matty cassel. whatever. all those hot white football players totally look the same!

i was going to lambaste our defense for letting the 49ers score 17 points, but that's actually only one point above their season low - and seven of them were garbage points scored late in the fourth quarter. all things considered, this game should not have felt as frustrating to me as it did - but this was not as much fun to watch as it looks like it was on paper. that said, it was pretty awesome watching malcolm mitchell step in for the injured gronk and hogan and take off down the field for tommy's final touchdown - and mitchell's career first. the rookie had 98 yards including that 56 yard touchdown reception, and for that, he gets the tommy of the week. i'd say all those hot black receivers totally look the same, but after that catch, i will never call you brandon lafell again, malcolm!

we play the jets on sunday afternoon - and after getting flexed out of sunday night because the jets are so freaking bad, we'd better tear them up. my midseason malaise is bordering on full-fledged patriots dissociative disorder, but there's nothing like trouncing on the jets to jolt me out of it. you've got nothing to do on thursday except eat turkey and think happy patriots thoughts, so don't let me down!

have a happy thanksgiving, and go pats!

love dav
