  • "Your mom always taught you not to eat with food in your mouth."
  • Kirk is getting AFTER that Turducken
  • Interviewer just said something about mom saying "don't eat with food in your mouth" which made me chuckle.
  • Marcus Jones was too eager to run that last punt back for a TD. He could have let the ball bounce and let the Pats start at the 20.

    I mean...at this point, a bad loss for the Pats. But they did some things they've had trouble doing this year.

    Not sure how the Minnesota D-line couldn't get to Mac all that often.

    Lose to the Bills, maybe beat the Cardinals and probably beat the Raiders?

  • HeathenHealer: Kirk is getting AFTER that Turducken


    He SAID he had been waiting since 2017 to eat that abomination. Five years, that A LONG TIME

    HE LIKES THAT!
  • Happy Thanksgiving! See y'all on Sunday
  • seventypercent: "Your mom always tells you not to eat with food in your mouth"


    That's the kinda thing my mom said growing up. 
    My wife says things like that now. 

    /Shut your mouth and eat!

    I didn't expect it to be this high scoring, but I totally said it would be a one score game. Vikings got some breaks on special teams and the offense made some nice plays. Pats definitely focused on shutting down the run and Kirk took advantage. It was a fun game, could have easily gone either way.
  • bionicjoe: Throw down the middle. 
    Brilliant, Mac. 

    Farking brilliant.


    I thought maybe a lateral laden play.

    Worse is the receiver going down like he thought they had a timeout.

    Surviving the holiday week at the restaurant?


    The real disaster starts tomorrow, though yesterday was a nightmare, too. Remember when I said that if anyone called off we were boofooed? Someone called off, and my boss was so pissed off he took it out on me all day. If I spoke to my coworkers the way he spoke to me I would have been fired long ago.

    Tomorrow Hell starts promptly at 6. I went in for 3 hours to set up today because the night shift is useless, so tomorrow will be easy until he gets wound up about something stupid and comes at me again.

    So we'll see. Black Friday is hiat or miss. I mean, it's always busy, but there's busy and HOLY FARK busy. If it's the latter I'm looking at 14 hours. If not it's only 10. The weekend will be easier if the boss stays home like he should and let's me deal with it, he introduces stress where I don't.

    Yeah that was weird. He's gotta know it's not college, the clock won't stop.

    My problem with this game is the timing.  They still have a good record against the conference. But they needed to keep up and it was right there for them.

    Fark, sorry, I've had a bosses that just bring in stress and chaos and it's so unhelpful. Fingers crossed for you tomorrow and the weekend.

    I don't know college rules. Does the clock stop after every play at the end of the game?

    This year more than others in last few years really feels like a major realignment of power is happening. It's interesting, but weird to see things like NFC East dominating, a good Miami team, etc.

    Stops after first downs until they reset the chains. I actually think that's a reasonable rule.

    It stops after every first down until the ball is set. So basically on that last play if the receiver gives himself up with a few seconds left they can rush to the line and spike the ball as soon as the ref sets it.
  • I can't find the post, I've tried everything with Ctrl-F....Adolf mentioned that the Pats making dumb mistakes was the opposite of what happened over the last couple decades. It was a reply to another comment. I've tried: opposite mistake adolf and can't find it.

    I just wanted to smart Adolf Oliver Nipple's post.

    Consider this that vote.
  • "Ball carrier of the Game" sponsored by Manscaped. Lol, I've never watched the local post game show before.
  • The refs were bad. I'm not saying they screwed the Pats. I mean, the calls can't be quantified. There's no telling how the game would have gone if they got the first bad call right. Or what bad call they might have made later.

    Last night, watching the Bruins game within 10 minutes my girlfriend (who follows the Bruins better than me) says, "Oh, it's going to be that kind of game where the refs don't know what they're doing."

    And it proved right. A ton of bad calls, refs looked like idiots.

    Those darned refs have made my team lose before. Something needs to be done about them

    You can always deal with the home cooking, it's just part of it.  But three near simultaneous holds with shirts and pads being pulled away from bodies at the point of attack on a kickoff return was when I knew it was over.  Taking the TD away from Henry made that an 11 point swing within a couple of minutes.  This Patriots team can't recover from that the way they used to because they can't take care of their own stupid sh*t.
  • I'm starting a Kirk Cousins grillz go fund me.
  • Nana's Vibrator: This Patriots team can't recover from that the way they used to because they can't take care of their own stupid sh*t.


    That's the issue right now. Usually the Pats capitalize on the mistakes, but it's been a few years where they're the ones making those mistakes.

    Henry not taking one step to the right after a very long gain before the defender could tackle him. Mac sliding for a sack when he could have just thrown it over the end zone and stopped the clock.

    And that last play? Meyers just gives himself up with no time on the clock. Either try to break through a tackle, or look for somebody behind where he is to throw the ball or anything other than just saying, "I'm gonna go down and end the game."

    Coaching. Coaching is suffering.
