Monday night was not a good night for the Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. They couldn't stop the Chiefs running game to save their collective lives, Alex Smith looked like a veteran All-Pro, and his actual All-Pro looked nothing at all like one.So if he was mad it was not hard to understand why.
Which kind of makes his response to what has to easily be the dumbest question he's ever been asked even more classic.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was pulled in the fourth quarter of Monday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. It wasn't becaue he had gotten the Patriots out to such a huge lead that his services were no longer needed. No, it was just the opposite--the Pats were getting spanked.
It had already been a pretty bad day for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. He played like crap, he didn't get much help from his line, and he was getting his behind kicked. There was only one way that it could get any worse than it already was.
He could throw another interception the Chiefs could return it for a touchdown, and he could get knocked silly in the process (the hit comes in late in the play around the middle of the GIF).
Monday Night Football did not go well for the New England Patriots. Pretty much from when the game started till it mercifully ended the Kansas City Chiefs dominated the contest. They did it in such a way that it was pretty demoralizing for some of the guys on the Patriots--but it can't bother the Gronk, right? Nothing can get Rob Gronkowski down--right?
Rob Gronkowski was so down after making a beast of a touchdown catch he had no desire to give the ball the traditional Gronl Spike.
Going in to Monday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs Tom Brady probably figured that this one could be challenging, but that he'd be alright. So what if he had an inexperienced, makeshift line protecting him from one of the better defenses in the league.
Recently the Tennessee Titans experienced a tragic loss when their former kicker, Rob Bironas, lost his life in a single car accident. He had played for the Titans for nine seasons and had established a pretty solid relationship with his competitors; one of respect if not actual friendship.
To show their respect for their fallen comrade the Indianapolis Colts special teams specialist (punter Pat McAfee, kicker Adam Vinatieri, and long snapper Matt Overton) took this shot Sunday.
If you want to know what having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week is like just ask Dallas Cowboys defensive back Morris Claiborne what it's like. The former No. 6 pick went from being benched, storming out of the team's practice facility, and becoming fodder for bloggers, media, and haters everywhere before returning to work (must be nice; most of us would be fired).
