|That guy got signed out of the parking lot before the kick off|
FOXBOROUGH (FOX25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - A fan at Sunday's Patriots game shot himself in the leg while sitting in his car in a Gillette Stadium parking lot just after 3 PM Sunday afternoon. Foxborough Police determined the incident occurred with a licensed firearm. They secured that firearm during their investigation. Patriots spokesperson Stacey James responded to the incident in a statement to FOX25.
I'll just go ahead and assume this was Bill Belichick trying to get inside the collective mind of his defense before the game, just preparing for this rag-tag bunch of clowns to shoot themselves in the foot (metaphorically speaking) once again.
How much more of this group are we supposed to be subjected to? I mean every week there is some guy, who before this year I'd probably never heard of, making a crucial mistake or penalty to absolutely kill this defense. I mean yesterday we had a linebacker, who I'm fairly certain was just signed before the opening kickoff, getting burnt on the game winning touch down. I mean, there's like 12 seconds left, the Giants have no time outs left, they can't possibly be running the ball if they want to save time to kick a game tying field goal, and yet this clown bit hard on the play action. Don't even get me started on the two pass interference calls late in the game, I can't even count on my fingers how many times in the last 3-4 years this defense has killed itself with absurd pass interference penalties, so seeing Sergio Brown take out a receiver who had no shut in fucking hell at catching a deep bomb that was overthrown by about 10 yards, hardly even registered a reaction to me...And Kyle Arrington's inability to turn his head around did nothing but bring me flashbacks to the Ellis Hobbs days, that play looked so similar to what we saw out of Hobbs for like straight years that I had to pull up the depth chart on my computer to make sure they hadn't resigned him out of the blue.
Bottom line, this team is going 10-6, maybe 11-5 and losing a close on in the first round. That's it, that's best case scenario right now, a close nail biting loss in the first round of the playoffs. That's what teams with above average offenses and historically bad defenses do . They lose in the first round. Goddamnit.
