Misleading Headline

Do you think Shank is using the royal 'we', or is he trying to leave the impression that he's talking about everyone else?
We just can’t judge Patriots until January
Even his nicknames are old and dated (besides being stupid and unfunny):
Geno Smith. Ryan Tannehill. EJ Manuel.

And Tom Brady.

These are the starting quarterbacks in the AFC East, which henceforth shall be known as the Andy Warhol (Tomato Can) Division.
Because Andy Warhol used to make paintings of tomato cans and called it art! I get it!

He then proceeds to bore the hell out of the reader by stating the obvious for nearly every New England Patriots fan. He saves the truly majestic bullshit for the grand finale:
This is why I am waiting for January with this team. We know it’s going to be a fun and easy four months as the Patriots crush hapless division foes and the Mr. Softee NFC North.
Does anyone in their right mind think that Shank will refrain from any level of criticism with a Patriots loss? Or do you think he'll then use a weak cop-out like 'that's not what I wrote' when he gets called on it? No reason it can't be both!

Shank will be jumping for joy with the Patriots 0-1 and the rest of the AFC East 1-0.

That Shank doesn't do his homework on the Patriots shows when he never bothers to consider the winning percentages of the Patriots in division games and non-division games - the percentages for both are the same - .750. His insistence on "Tomato Can" division, like a lot of other Shankist philosophy, betrays zero understanding of fact.

He was at it again on CSN-NE after the game with blame on trading Logan Mankins and how Mankins would have made things better - ignoring of course his decline in play and the fact in his first game with the Bucs he gave them nothing and was lost for the game in the second quarter with a knee injury.
