Connelly’s Top Ten - Patriots Can’t Stand the Heat

Connelly’s Top Ten - Patriots Can’t Stand the Heat

1. Misc

* Wicked hot down their for well hydrated Patriot fans

* Just the sight of Tom Coughlin is kryptonite

* Ryan Allen off to a nice start - seem to be seeing him too much

* Three 15 yard penalties on extra points - must have been some retaliation going on

* Jags were without Fournette

* Pic play on the TD to end the first half

2. Brady

* Brady is 6-6 in Florida

* Not great on the deep ball

* Football has two nicknames for Brady I have never heard - Pharaoh / Sir

* Looked like a guy without many weapons


* Patterson has a play set up for him and back pedals with the ball coming and falls down - ugh

* Hogan is a complementary receiver

* Sonny Michel did run over a defender which was nice

* Was Gronk fighting enough to get open - hope we don’t see the difference between this year and last year when he had incentives meaning millions

* Blueprint - take away Gronk and make James White beat you

4. Defense

* Amazing they have had this run of 18 years and haven’t seen to touch a QB

* Another bad QB carving them up - painful to watch

* Hightower looks like an average linebacker right now

* Can someone figure out the crossing routes

5. Coaching

* Strange not going for 2 when down 11 in 4th

* Bill was furious at King for not jumping on the punt when the Jag jumped offside

* I hate when McDaniel goes crazy with running the ball inside the 20 - did it three straight times

* Gostkowski is 3 for 9 on onside kicks - from the 50 yard line (twice after penalties) why wouldn’t you try that everytime

6. Kraft Sighting / Bill’s Garb

* 14 seconds left in first half

* Bill blue wind breaker short sleeve

7. Red Sox

* On pace for 111 wins

* Betts hurt ugh - hurt Sale / hurt Betts / done in first series

* Red Sox win again with the six hitters in the lineup hitting under .250 - Lin, Moreland, Kinsler, Bradley, Vazquez, Devers

8. Around the NFL

* Matt Patricia on a pace to go 0-16 / another defensive coordinator not to do well - Romeo Crennel (I know its early)

* Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown for  819 yards in two games and 8 TD

* Aaron Rodgers doing insurance ads is appropriate seeing he is always hurt

* Steelers haven’t won yet and Bell has caused dissension

9. Old School

* In two years Sale has thrown 361 innings / Tiant threw 311 in 1974

10. Randomocity

* Next time you walk by the smell of a gas leak might walk faster
