What the Patriots did to the Washington Redskins last night was the worst loss I have ever seen in all my years of Redskins fandom. Think thats a stretch? The last time they lost near that bad was in 1961 when the Giants beat them 53-0.
It got so bad for me, the Redskins fan, that Cowboys fans at the sports bar I was at were actually cheering on the team that throttled them 48-27 just two weeks ago. That is some crazy shit right there and only confirms my belief that Cowboys fans are the single worst fans in sports. Yes, worse than Eagles fans…although it ain’t by much.
Did the Patriots run up the score? Lets see, final score was 52-7…you damn right they ran up the score. New England went for it on 4th down, twice, while up over 30 points to the Redskins and they never stopped passing the ball. Think the Patriots care? Nope. “…we don’t care,” Patriots’ receiver Donte Stallworth said after the game.
Now I am not going to whine about how big bad Bill Belichick shouldn’t have done this or that nor will I complain about these random, ongoing, headset problems that seem to happen at Gillette…I am just going to say this:
Do not anger the Football Gods, New England Patriots. The Gods of the Football do not like taunting. Egos large and small have been crushed by the Football Gods. What Belichick, Brady, Moss and the entire organization are in danger of is thinking that they are bigger than the game. A beatdown of that magnitude signifies it. They don’t care, they say. Its all about the Patriots right now and karma is a bitch whore.
So, on this day, congratulations Patriots and Patriot fans, you are still undefeated. You seem to have the single most complete team since the salary cap was instituted. Nothing seems like it can stop you…until the Football Gods inevitably intervene.
Lets just hope the injury bug that has seemed to miss this team does not strike anytime soon…and isn’t brought upon by a “Bounty Bowl” III in the future.
