DHL Dan - IX

When we get back-to-back columns from Shank, the second one tends to be of lesser quality than the first. On that scale, Shank comes through.
DENVER - Leave it to the Patriots to ruin things for everybody else.

Sports fans of America yesterday turned their eyes toward this stadium one mile above sea level, hoping to see another miracle; a burning bush, a football Fatima, perhaps 80,000 fans feasting on a few fishes and loaves.

No. There was no Tebow Time this time. Instead, we witnessed another routine execution by the brutal New England assassins who’ve ruled the AFC East in nine of the past 11 seasons.

Patriots 41, Broncos 23. Praise the Lord and pass the humble pie.
Over the top, cliche ridden and chock full of lame song lyrics - the definitive Shank column, everyone!

And what does Shank offer as a follow-up to that column? He goes on Gresh & Zolak and rips the Patriots defense because the Broncos scored in the first quarter. Shank would have nothing of what the defense did after the 16-7 score; it was ALL about the first quarter, the first quarter constitutes the indictment of the Patriots defense.

Shank just follows the Steve From Fall River crowd.
