Connelly’s Top Ten - Offensive Line Clinic



  • Michelle Tafoya - Michelin called - they want their coat back
  • If there were fans allowed - red-seat fans wouldn’t have come out in this weather
  • Patriots lucky the timeout they called toward end of first half didn’t result in Baltimore points
  • The last two minutes of the first half took 19 minutes
  • Last time Foxboro game had weather like that - BC - Alabama - 1983
  • Time before that - Joe Washington of Colts on Monday night
  • 4-0 when win turnover battle


  • Bill rain coat, winter hat
  • Bob sighting 11:25 left in 4th quarter
  • Bob 4:20 left in 4th quarter on zoom call


  • Nice job managing game - he is not as good as Hugh Millen though
  • If Patriots lost game - the missed pass to Meyers in end zone would have been the biggest play in the game
  • Cam’s three TD passes this year for a combined 19 yards / Jakobi Meyer TD pass 24 yards
  • For weeks - people have given Cam the Covid excuse: Two other QB’s coming off Covid related issues: Roethlisberger put up 36 points / Tannehill put up 42 points
  • Cam record last FIVE years 27-27
  • Let the sign Cam talk begin - remember he had 13 completions


  • Didn’t score in the first quarter again
  • Hated Josh’s conservative play calling in 4th quarter - playing not to lose
  • When a Patriot tight end catches a pass - its like a lunar eclipse and Big Foot sighting all in one
  • Damien Harris the best Patriot running back AFTER CONTACT since - wait for it - Jim Nance
  • Why not turn N’Keal Harry into a tight end?
  • Running back touches Harris 22 / Burkhead 10 / White 2 / Johnson 2


  • Gilmore - not bang for the buck - paying him extra money this year - and he can’t get on the field
  • Winovich picks wrong gap on 4th down
  • Terez Hall double digit tackles - never heard of him
  • McCourty twins do everything together - including dropping an interception in their hands
  • Nice bounce back game for JC Jackson
  • Active games for Duggar - 10 tackles


  • Every time I see John Simon struggle in assignment - the more I would let Hightower find another team next year
  • Thanks Baltimore coaches for taking Lamar Jackson out of the game and going Wildcat on 4th down
  • Imagine what Route 1 would be like driving home in this weather
  1. Around the NFL
  • Kyler Murray crazy throw on Hail Mary pass - Bills Mafia were breaking more than tables
  • I’ve said this for the last couple years - Field Goals are too easy - reduce the width of goal posts and make the kick come from the spot from the last tackle to create challenging angles - yards of field goals on Sunday - 61 / 59 / 58 / 55 / 53 / 52 / 52 / 50 / 50 / 50
  • Kickoff returns for TD - going into Sunday 3 TD on 525 returns / Packer Travis Williams 1967 - 4 TD on 18 returns
  • Alex Smith great game in DC - 390 yards - lost his starting position on three teams (49ers, Chiefs, Washington) / Drew Bledsoe three teams (Patriots, Bills, Cowboys)
  • Antoine Brown 9 targets / poor Scotty Miller 1 touch - life isn’t fair
  • Cam Newton record last 10 games with Carolina 3-7 / Terry Bridgewater this year 3-7
  1. Around College Football
  • Big 10 - Indiana and Northwestern are 8-0 / Michigan and Penn State are 1-7
  • Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly (who appears to be unlikable) had tangible proof Saturday why he chose quarterback Ian Book (20 for 27) over Phil Jurkovec (18 for 40) who missed open receivers all game
  1. QB greats first year with their new team after TEN games: Brady at Tampa 7-3 / Montana at KC - 7-3 / Favre at Jets 7-3 / Peyton at Denver 7-3
  2. Masters
  • Ricky Fowler - 44 majors / zero wins / $39 million career winnings
  • The sound of Bryson DeChambeau swing is like a jet taking off
  • Tiger’s 10 on the 12th Sunday - makes me feel better about my game (what game?)
  • Hey Dustin Johnson’s wife (I know Gretzky) - your niece called - she wants her outfit back
  1. Last three manager hires in baseball

AJ Hinch - Tigers - Suspended for a year for cheating
Tony Larussa - Whites Sox - Second arrest for DUI
Alex Cora - Red Sox - Suspended for a year for cheating

  1. Ray Bourque took 2,965 more Bruins shots than Bobby Orr (5,950 / 2985)
  2. Old School - First year for tight ends with Patriots - sorted by yards:

Russ Francis……….16th — 1975……35…..636 / 4 TD
Aaron Hernandez…113th - 2010…..45…..563 / 6 TD
Gronk………………….42nd - 2010…..42…..546 / 10 TD
Ben Coates………….32nd - 2004 ….10…….95 / 1 TD
Ben Watson…………124th -1991…….2…….16 / 0 TD
Marv Cook ………….63rd - 1989 …….3…….13 / 0 TD

  • Red Sox - Ken Harrelson, Jerry Remy, Bob Montgomery, Lou Merloni, Eck
  • Patriots - Gino, Scott Zolak
  1. Randomocity
  • I should have invested in leaf bag industry
  • Christmas commercials starting early and often
  • We are fortunate to get another week of football - thankful
  • Lost in Space over-rated - Dr. Smith gutless Robot should have zapped him with those lobster claw hands
  • I hate that college football broadcasts force you watch a scroll with scores at the bottom of the screen
  • Jimmies on ice cream is old school
  • Steve Martin over-rated comedian
  • Queen’s Gambit on Net Flix - A-
