Is there any news about Gronk coming back soon? Maybe week 16?

Colts now control their own destiny in the AFC South.

I don't think they'll sweep the Texans but it wouldn't be a total shock.

Also, if Pats best the Niners I think they'll ein out and end up as the 1 seed.

It's crazy that the Colts very likely possibly will win the AFC South if they do pull out both HOU games. Tall task, I know...

EDIT: I am an idiot.

DOUBLE EDIT: I'm sticking with "very likely" after all. Both teams would likely finish 12-4 in that scenario, with Colts owning the tiebreaker.

Kicked the shit out of PIT in 2010 and got manhandled by PIT in 2011.


If manhandled helps you sleep at night, more power to you. That wasn't the point.

Steve Young:
"Tom Brady... wow... watching him tonight, as an old broken down quarterback, just a pleasure. I don't thiink anyone in his generation does more things better than he does."
"The Patriots have the greatest organization"
"Houston... what an Embarrassment. You just declared this the most important game in your history and this is what you show? "

Edit:wrong Young

Brady just topped off the night by submitting the most Belichickian press conference of his career. Dodged questions on the MVP, the importance of the win, his age and wrinkles, his daughter, his best game ever, and had flawlessly inane pivots to team-based platitudes at every juncture.

"How is your daughter doing?"
Brady: ... She's doing very fine (awkward laugh). This was a great week and a great way to finish this week

"Dante Stallworth says the only thing different from you in 07 and now is more wrinkles!"
Brady: (confused look) Oh! Haha. Thats what kids, marriage and a few losses do to you

"If you had to show your daughter one game from your career, what would it be?"
Brady: I don't know. I love the snow ones, it can't be 60 degrees and perfect weather in Foxboro like today. Hopefully that game is soon to come"

Anybody else hear Steve Young say that the Texans thought coming in that they had the "biggest dick" in the conference? Did he say "stick"? And how much better would that be. Suzy looked a little discomfited to my eye. Anyone else hear that?

Yea, I thought that I was just getting tired because she then said something about which team had the bigger stick now IIRC. It was a weird moment that I just chalked up to me being tired, but apparently it was actually real.

Following up on the tassel talk earlier, I just checked out the Patriots ProShop and saw this:

If there was an adult size then that would be something else. It is like two laser beams instead of just one....but a mohawk tassel instead of just a ball tassel.

The Patriots will win next week. I watch a fair bit of 49er football and while their defense is every bit as good as advertised, the new, Kaepernick-led offense is still finding its feet. I think Alex Smith actually would be a better bet against the Pats simply because he won't force anything.

Meanwhile, New England has a +198 points differential. The next best team....

The 49ers at +132. Bring 'em on.

you can try to hear it either way and convince yourself. I wonder if sometimes the analysts forget that they are on TV and just talk about the game like they would with their friends.

BTW, he said "biggest dick in the league." I'm sure of it.

But several veterans said this was akin to a school field trip.

“I think they showed us what it takes to be a champion,” inside linebacker Bradie James said.

Defensive lineman Antonio Smith agreed.

“I sensed it from the coin toss. It was business, straight up, to them,” he said.

“You can see just how serious they were. They’ve been here before. I’m a movie buff, you know. It reminded me of that movie, ‘Troy,’ when Achilles told Hector, ‘Now you know what you’re dealing with.’ That’s what it was like. No love. ‘We’re coming in here to show y’all who the big dogs are.’”

Stick. Sorry. On TV, in real time I also heard stick. Steve Young is a religious guy, family man...come on, man. I know he had several concussions playing, somewhat due to his reckless abandon style of play.

In pregame, someone also used the phrase "biggest stick", I'm pretty sure.

The opposite occurs in edited TV versions of "The Godfather" when Michael is getting ready to go to the restaurant to shoot They Turk and Sonny says to Clemenza that the gun better be well-hidden in the restaurant toilet because he doesn't want his brother coming out "with just his dick in his hand" which they subtly changed for broadcast TV to "with just a stick in his hand"

You're probably right. I wasn't entirely serious that I was "sure" he said "dick." I think the way those words flow together it's very difficult (if not impossible) to differentiate between "biggest stick" and "biggest dick." I was just amused and coming down off the high of watching that performance.

It's pretty remarkable. You would think a loss like that, in a nationally televised game, against a team you may very well face again in the playoffs, would just shatter the Texan's confidence.

Didn't see it referenced here -- if you watch the TD to Lloyd again, as soon as Brady stands up from the play fake, you can hear Gruden say "Uh, oh" as he realizes that the entire Houston D has been hornswaggled. It made me laugh out loud.

As expected, huge rating.


Last night’s ESPN Monday Night Football game – a New England Patriots’ 42-14 win over the Houston Texans – won the night among all television programs on broadcast or cable in households, viewers and all key male and adult demos. Similarly, ESPN led all television networks in those same categories.


The telecast delivered a 10.4 household coverage rating (9.0 US), representing an average of 10,242,000households (14,483,000 million viewers – P2+), according to Nielsen, making it the eighth most-viewed program among viewers (ninth among households) on cable television this year. The Game peaked between 9:15-9:30 p.m. ET and 9:45–10 p.m. at a 12.3 coverage rating.

The press conference was fine until Rick Reilly got involved at the end. I don't get why Brady humors these douchebag media types like Reilly and Jim Gray.

Is there any athlete you'd rather be for a day than Wilfork? He just seems like an incredibly centered dude, even more so than Brady (or anyone, really).
