Dan On The Pats - Bills Game

Shank focuses on Tom Brady's first game back as the Boston Patriots quarterback. For now, Shank plants many wet, sloppy kisses on Tom, and the column reads like a Peter King parody. Overall, it's an average effort with some of the usual Shank signatures: two Elvis references, a semi-shot at Curt Schilling, and a lame song reference, which no Shank article should be without.

One quibble, though:

He (Belichick - ed.) wore his New England Patriot gray hoodie with cutoff sleeves - a look that was invented in this century.

For those of us that watched the game, it was not a hooded sweatshirt, he was wearing a sweatshirt and the sleeves were cut off near the elbows. It all depends on what look you're going for...

I can't believe you didn't comment on this little bon mot:

"(Aside: I wonder if any of Belichick’s young fans think the Buffalo franchise was named for New England’s coach? The Cleveland Browns, after all, were named after Paul Brown. Why not the Buffalo Bills after Bill Belichick?)"

Hey, Shank! If the Cleveland Browns are named after Paul Brown, wouldn't your fictional Buffalo team be called the Buffalo Belichicks?

Also, Boston sports fans under the age of 35 are not complete morons.

Surprised Shank missed why Rex Ryan recorded that phone message - the Jets are not selling PSLs for their new stadium and they need to sell them.

This was an ugly game - defense played well but the offense didn't respond to getting hit in the mouth.
