Is Shank Trolling Us?

One line only from today's column:
The Patriots are going to win their “Monday Night Football” game against the Texans, and they are going to dominate.
Why would he say something like that? Granted, the Patriots have five blowout wins this year - at Tennessee, at Buffalo, the London game versus Saint Louis, versus Indianapolis and the Jets game a fortnight ago. I'm pretty sure the Texans are playing better football than those teams. I'm not saying it won't happen but it's not likely.

I think this is a setup for a pissy column tomorrow if the Patriots lose, nothing more. All that from one sentence. I'll ask Mike if I can change the masthead to 'We barely read him so you don't have to.'

Shank will become more insufferable now because he nailed this one - the Texans got crushed 42-14.

The irony - of those five blowout losses before the MNF massacre, the Bills game was a comeback win from down 21-7 in the third, and the Titans showed more fight in that loss than the Texans did in this one.
