By FITSNews || We were strolling through the lobby of a low-rent motel in the Redneck Riviera last weekend when we noticed a rather large gentleman decked out in Indianapolis Colts’ attire.
Was it Sic Willie?
No. But now that you mention it … we actually noticed two rather large gentlemen decked out in Colts’ attire.
Anyway, while the wound Sic suffered four months ago when his beloved Horsies’ were defeated in Super Bowl XLIV is obviously still quite fresh, it soothes him a bit knowing that his longtime nemeses, the New England Patriots, are still in full-fledged meltdown mode.
Quarterback Tom Brady reiterated Wednesday that he thought last year’s New England Patriots team was not mentally tough and, looking back, indicated there was a “lack of trust, lack of confidence” within the team.
The Patriots’ struggles in the second half of games in 2009 were well chronicled. Of their six losses, they were leading at the half in four of them and tied in another. The Patriots were outscored 94-38 in the second half of their six losses. In addition to their second-half struggles, the Patriots were just 2-6 on the road.
“When it comes down to it, games that we lose in the fourth quarter, games that we lose in the second half, or losing on the road like we did, that can be lack of trust, lack of confidence,” Brady said in an interview on Boston sports radio station WEEI on Wednesday morning. “There are a lot of issues you have when that repeats itself time and time again over the course of the season.”
This is awesome … fight amongst yourselves, guys. Fight amongst yourselves.
And while we may give Brady – a.k.a. “Poopie” – our grudging respect (it’s kind of hard not to, just look at him), we hate the Patriots and particularly their cheating asshole of a coach, Bill Belichick.
Of course Brady isn’t going to get off easy in this internal spat …
Early in his career, Brady earned accolades for being one of the team’s hardest workers in the offseason, traditionally winning a coveted parking spot in recognition of his diligence in working out with the team. The last couple offseasons, however, Brady has worked out away from the team as his family grows (he has two sons) and priorities change.
Ahh, sweet Schadenfreude.
