Found November 21, 2012 on Extra Pine Tar:
Mmmm, Thanksgiving is almost here. Food, family, friends, football… This year, we even get lucky with the Patriots on Thanksgiving night, which gives you ample time to eat, pass out, wake up, drink a bottle of Jack Daniels, yell at your family for not understanding you, call you wife fat, eat a turkey sandwich and try to fight your  uncle before the game starts. It is Thanksgiving after all. While you’ll undoubtedly be wearing a sweater or a button down and also enough cologne to throw your family off the weed scent that follows you like the dirt that follow Pig Pen in Peanuts,  when Tom Brady finishes up torching the Jets he’ll most likely be wearing glasses with no lenses and a trench coat that makes him look like a lesbian doing the walk of shame. At least Bob Kraft is pulling off the People Magazine “LOOK, THEY’RE JUST LIKE US!” style by rocking a hoodie. Unfortunately, for BK, you can see his two-tone button down sticking out over his sweatshirt, just barely. You can take a girl out of the country… What about Jonathan Kraft…does anyone else get the sneaking suspicion that he’s wearing a thong under those Dungarees? And then there’s Jerod Mayo, dressed exactly as I picture him dressing at all times off the field. He looks relaxed – not giving a **** that he’s overrated and can’t cover the pass or make a tackle at the line of scrimmage – just kicking it with the old white guys who pay his salary and his metrosexual quarterback who he’s sometimes afraid to shower in front of. Ah, Thanksgiving, the greatest holiday of them all.

Around the NFL: Week 12

No passing of the torch here: just a handshake Some things never change, but a lot of things do. There was not a passing of the torch from Tom Brady to Andrew Luck on Sunday, as the Patriots dominated the Colts in every sense of the word.  The Pats’ 59-24 stomping of Indianapolis showed the NFL that Foxboro is still not a place any team wants to travel come January. But it was...

Tom Brady Puts the Kibosh on Video Games, Says Patriots Need to Spend Time Wisely While Preparing for Jets

The Patriots face a short turnaround this week as they prepare to take on the Jets on Thanksgiving evening.

No Gronk vs. Jets, but Pats still go as Brady goes

There were no sighs of relief, no jumps for joy when the New York Jets found out they wouldn't have to worry about Rob Gronkowski this week. Sure, the New England Patriots lost perhaps the league's top playmaking tight end for a few weeks with a broken forearm. But Rex Ryan's team knew better than to celebrate. ''I don't know,'' Ryan said, shaking...

Patriots roll past Jets 49-19 with big 2nd quarter

Tom Brady couldn't believe what happened. Neither could Bill Belichick, nor the rest of the New England Patriots, for that matter. They were up 7-0 on the New York Jets one minute, and 28-0 the next. Literally. Three touchdowns in 52 seconds. That was all it took to send the high-scoring Patriots to a 49-19 victory Thursday night - and put the bumbling Jets on the verge of...

Turn On The Jets Week 12 Roundtable – Jets vs. Pats Predictions

Joe Caporoso - 12 Pack Chris Gross- Jets 24, New England 21: Tomorrow, the Jets will display the same mentality that they had last week in St. Louis, the mindset that their backs are against the wall and they need to swing from the hip to survive throughout the rest of the season. While New York is historically bad under Rex Ryan when facing the Patriots in the clubs’ second...

Patriots Celebrate Holiday as Jets Look Like Turkeys
