I have no words, I honestly don’t. I am unable to comprehend what I saw during that game. Losing always stings, getting blown out is worse, but when there is a complete lack of effort? That’s where I draw the line. The team was okay in the first quarter and things fell apart from there, the second quarter was painful to watch and the team just gave up during the second half. There was no effort, no spirit, just a sense that the team wanted the game to be over, heck, even Bill Belichick gave up calling plays and didn’t even have his play sheet during the 4th quarter. Worse yet, the Patriots lost Devin McCourty and Josh Uche to injury, so they may get shut down for the final game.
However, I will give credit to the running game, they tried their best and Sony Michel actually had a decent game, but when your offense becomes one dimensional, you become easy to predict. My father and I were watching the game and we could literally predict what was going to happen, It would go run, short pass, incompletion, punt.
I hate to say this, but Cam probably isn’t the answer and I love Cam Newton, I just thing he can’t throw the deep ball anymore and his accuracy is shot, I believe that Jarrett Stidham will get the starting nod over the Jets this week, but I can’t be sure, whatever happens I will trust Belichick. Next week, the Pats stay at home against the Jets for the final game of the season, let’s end it on a high note… GO PATS!!!
