We know, we know, we said we’d never read another word by the idiotic Gregg Easterbrook. But after the Pats’ 52-7 pasting of the Redskins, we couldn’t resist dropping in for a look at TMQ’s latest tantrum.
Here’s a portion of the hissy fit:
“With 13 minutes remaining, the Patriots led 38-0, yet Brady not only was still on the field but was in the shotgun and still throwing deep. With 12 minutes to play, New England jumped offsides on third-and-2; Brady visibly yelled “f—!” in angry disgust. With his team ahead 38-0! At 11 minutes remaining, Belichick went for it on fourth-and-1, frantically trying to humiliate genteel Joe Gibbs by running up the score. When Brady threw to Wes Welker for yet another touchdown, he celebrated wildly afterward. OK, it’s unfair to say Brady smirks. But a true sportsman, or anyone with dignity, would have felt embarrassed about celebrating wildly at 45-0 in the fourth quarter. Matt Cassel came in at quarterback, and immediately began throwing from the shotgun. Belichick went for it on fourth-and-2 with a 45-point lead, and soon the Patriots were celebrating wildly when Cassel ran for a TD himself.”
Go back to coaching middle school flag football, crybaby. It’s funny how we didn’t hear any puling whines about running up the score from the Reskins or Joe Gibbs, you fatuous, toffee-nosed, malodorous bore.
