We all know how I feel about the Patriots. But can I be honest for a second?
I hate the "One More" rallying cry. Compared to "Do Your Job" from the 2014 run it's trash. I get what they're trying to do I just don't really like it. They're trying way too hard to make it happen. I feel like someone needs to Regina George them and just tell them to stop trying to make "One More" happen. It's not going to happen. I just think it's corny and honestly just not good. I don't really know how else to say it, I just straight up think it sucks and wish they came up with something better, but anyways that's not really the point. This is:
Today the Patriots held a Send-Off Rally for fans before they leave for Houston. Low key kinda mad I didn't know about this because I totally would've gone. That's the beauty of not having a real job, my schedule is verrrrrry flexible.
The Pats had the usual cast of characters say a few words. Kraft, Belichick, Brady along with a few other current players but it was former All-Pro Cornerback Ty Law who stole the show. I don't know if he's just nervous because the Hall of Fame class is going to be announced this weekend and he's stressing about getting into Canton, but at the rally Ty did something extremely un-Patriot like.
He guaranteed victory.
I was shocked Belichick didn't have a sniper ready to take him out right before he said it because we all know that's not what the Patriots do. Bill preaches "ignore the noise" Even at a rally before the Super Bowl I feel like Belichick told all the current guys on the team not to say anything like that to stir up some fake controversy before the game. We know Bill doesn't give a fuck he's cut guys the night before the Super Bowl. I guess ignoring the noise does not apply for former players.
I get it from Ty's standpoint. He's trying to fire up the crowd and everything, but like yooooo Ty it's 2017 bro. You aren't on the Pats anymore. Kind of a scummy move to guarantee a team that you no longer play on and can impact will win. You're basically like the little brother talking shit and just hoping your big brother will clean up the mess you made and kick the other guys ass for you. Maybe he forgot he's not on the team anymore? I mean you throw him up their in Pats gear, at a Super Bowl rally, going to Houston. He probably brings up memories from this time in 2004. I'm guessing like all ex NFL players that Ty probably has brain issues so that could be a very valid excuse. Maybe Ty thinks the Pats will sign him to help lock up Julio Jones?
I don't know, but either way we have our official first guaranteed victory of Super Bowl week. I know people will bust fans balls for saying "we" when talking about teams but it's usually like "we need another pass rusher" or "I hope we kick their ass". Not "we got bring back one more, I guarantee you that". Luckily for the Patriots I don't think WE have to worry about any current players making the same claim as Ty.
