Hey Rex? Can you hear that? Well, listen up. That’s Belichick sending you a message.
If this was supposed to be a statement game, then I guess the only message that got delivered was Belichick telling Rex Ryan to STFU. Perhaps you should have spent less time running your mouth in front of the camera and more time reviewing game tapes. Had you done so, you might have noticed this tiny little guy on our team – don’t worry, he will look familiar to you when you go over last night’s footage today – and prepared for the routes he was about to carve right through your defense.
Danny Woodhead totaled 104 yards on 4 receptions (and earned another 11 yards on two rushing attempts), including a 50-yard gain after a short pass from Brady late in the third quarter. This was his first career 100-yard receiving game. My favorite play by Woodhead, however, was the block he threw down to free up Branch for the Pats second touchdown of the game.
Tom Brady – who, from now on, will be referred to as MVP – went 21 of 29 for 326 yards and 4 TDs. He has now completed 228 consecutive passes without an interception. Said another way, in the last seven consecutive games, Brady has a TD-INT ratio of 17-0. Last night, Brady moved into 13th place all-time with 252 career TD passes.
Five different Patriots players got in on the scoring action last night (not including Graham, who got things going with a 41-yard FG) with Branch, Tate, Welker, Hernandez and Green-Ellis (x2) all finding the end zone.
Conversely, Sanchez’s luck finally ran out, going 17 of 33 for 164 yards and 3 INT. Combine that with the fact that the overhyped defense gave up 45 points and perhaps we can all start acknowledging that this team is overrated. With the exception of the Week 2 win over NE, every Jets W this season is over a team with a .500 or worse record.
Post-game, Ryan had this to say to the media: “all I can say is give [Patriots coach Bill Belichick] credit. I came in to kick his butt and he kicked mine. Obviously we got outcoached, outplayed, got our butts kicked. I don’t know what else you can say about it.”
Perhaps he should have just followed Brady’s lead. Brady, in his post-game interview, said that his team doesn’t listen to the hype. Instead, they take after BB and his mentality of 'When you win, say little. When you lose, say less’. Hey, Rex – write that down.
New England, I ask you: is there anything more beautiful than watching the man, who spent all week trash-talking your team, go down in flames? And I mean flames. This was the Jets worst loss in 25 years. Coincidentally, the last time they imploded in such epic fashion was also on MNF and also with a final score of 45-3 (against Miami).
It feels good to finally have the AFC East and Conference thrones to ourselves ...
