Connelly’s Top Ten – Uninspired!



MISC - Three big problems:
1. Bill and Tom look like a couple that have agreed to get divorced but are staying together this year until the kids are out of college
2.The rest of the team is like the kids that are knowing that the parents aren’t getting along and are not responding to the tensions – they are distracted and look utterly uninspired and flat
3. If possible the defensive personnel is worse this year – they can’t tackle, no team speed, no meanness – at least the offense has Edelman and Gordon coming – defense is Davey Crockett no one is coming


*TD passes for the three weeks: 3 then 2 then 1
*Last year Brady dared the gods with the whole training method preaching and being on the cover of Madden / this year his pressure is – did he work hard enough in the offseason to be ready

Belichick Garb / Kraft Sighting
* Bill went with the gray hoodie, cut sleeves
* Kraft had two showcases for himself (I was too bored by the game to pick up the pen and write down the times)


* Patriots have taken the ball or been giving the ball to start all three games – 0 points on the three opening drives
* Hogan can’t wait for Edelman to come back and go back to being just a piece

* The worst tackling Patriots team since Rod Rust (heaven help us when someone gets a linebacker in space)
* Defensive line got their asses handed to them – consistently knocked 5 yards off the line
* Malcom Brown is average at best


*Ryan Allen is on pace to punt 80 times – last year he punted 58 times
*Lions 70 plays to 47 / Lions time of possession 39:15 to 20:45 Pats


* Look out next weeks team the Dolphins are 3-0
* After three weeks the Browns have a better record than the Patriots (1-1-1 / 1-2)
* A week after Bortles torches the Pats defense the Titans and Malcom Butler hold him to 155 yards and 0 TD
* Patriots always get better as the season wears on but this is anemic at this point

2. Around the NFL

* I guess Jimmy G has never seen Drew Bledsoe not step out of bounds
* While Brady chases Peyton and Favre – look at Brees stats projected over a full year: 5,749 yards / 43 TD to 0 INT
* Don’t look know but Brandin Cooks is off to a fast start – on a pace for 101 catches and 1,792 yards
*Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is on pace for 69 TD passes

3. Red Sox Stuff –

* Red Sox over their last 33 games: 17-16
* Betts finishing like 1967 Yaz – 8 for his last 11
* Jackie Bradley in 2015 – 13 assists – 3 errors / last two years 15 assists - 9 errors
* Benintendi before All Star game: 14 HR / 57 RBI / .297
* Benintendi since All Star game: 2 HR / 26 RBI / .267

4. How many guys in NFL history have 6,000 career rushing yards / over 50 TD’s / Over 10 Playoff TD’s / And thee Super Bowl rings – Emmitt Smith, Franco Harris and LeGarrette Blount (5,971 yards)

5. Around College Football

*Why was Boston College ranked anyways – they had wins over U Mass ranked 100 / Holy Cross ranked 192 / Wake Forest ranked 64th
*In Oklahoma’s narrow 28-21 victory over Army – Sooners defenders Ken Murray and Curtis Bolton combined for 51 tackles!
*Also, Army had 78 rushes to Oklahoma’s 25 / time of possession Army 44:41 to 15:19
*University of Central Florida have won 16 straight

6. All four local teams have a losing streak going

7. Old School – Not good that baseball has seven teams that could be 30 games under .500 / 1967 there were only two teams 30 games under .500

8. Amazing Stat – Red Sox games times in September: 1 game under 2:50 / 4 games 2:50 to 3:00 / 7 games 3:00 to 3:30 / 3 games 3:30 to 4:00 / 1 game over 4:00

9. Just a Little Bit Outside – Football movies – Rudy did $22mm at box office / stupid Waterboy did $161mm

10. Randomocity

* If Tiger Woods can roll this into the Ryder Cup – this is up there with George Foreman selling grills and winning the belt wicked fat (Tiger was just in a mugshot months ago)
* Lime better than lemon
* The person who invents the fool proof tattoo remover is going to make millions
* Should Rob Ninkovich be criticizing the Josh Gordon pick up because of drug issues considering Ninkovich was suspended for four games for using illegal drugs.
