Nerdy, fanboy-ish rant incoming.
First... I've got to congratulate the Jets on physically and strategically beating up on my team today. I've been saying for the past two years now (even after convincing wins), that the Patriots need to fire their offensive coordinator, Bill O'Brien. The Patriots obviously have one of the best offenses in the league, led by one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time, who is playing the best football of his career..... yet at times the offense will completely sputter and stall due to unimaginative and downright predictable play-calling. O'Brien's terrible day came to a head late in the game, when he called a run-play in a clear passing situation.... and Belichick could be heard screaming to Brady from the sideline, "Throw it! Throw it!"
Now that my beloved Patriots are out, I've got to root for the Green Bay Packers. I won't support the Bears because I think Jay Cutler is a total douche who clearly
doesn't have the same love for the game that most other quarterbacks have. Not to mention he completely lacks the football I.Q. and the invaluable leadership qualities that other top quarterbacks like Brady, Manning, and Brees have. Not to mention he's unbelievably arrogant. And of course, for reasons I don't really need to explain, I'll never
root for the New York Jets.
I'll take the silent, selfless, and humble "Patriot Way" over the loud, obnoxious, trashy style of Rex Ryan and the Jets. All the Jets' trash-talking really put a negative spin on the media's buildup to the game. A few Jets' players crossed the line by using profanity, and even threatening Wes Welker in retaliation for his hilarious press conference
(which Bill Belichick actually punished
Anyway, I'm hoping for a Pittsburgh vs. Green Bay Superbowl matchup, with Green Bay winning. I don't want to see Big Ben and the Steelers match the Patriots' three championships in the 2000s.
