Look, it’s been a bad year for The Patriots. Mac Jones two years ago was the talk of New England as “the baby goat.” He was being heralded as the second coming of Tom Brady. Then the Pats played a game in the middle of a hurricane in Buffalo. Mac only threw the ball three times and he was never the same again.
Last year people excused his poor play by saying he had Matt Patricia a defensive coach as his offensive coach. The Patriots then added Bill O’Brien as the offensive coordinator and somehow, someway Mac Jones got worse. He’s so bad that fans online are debating whether or not Bill Belichick is playing him just to lose games so they can have a better draft pick next year (possibly Caleb Williams).
Should We Still Root For Bill Belichick To Win?
That seems like a crazy question considering this is the man who turned a Franchise that was most famous for getting blown out by The ’85 Bears and the ’97 Packers in the Super bowl into the greatest dynasty in football history. He’s currently 16 games behind Don Shula to have the most wins for a head coach in the history of the NFL. He’s brought us 6 Super Bowls!!!
The worse the Patriots play the more likely they are to get a better draft pick, which also means they are more likely to get Bill that coveted prize of being statistically the greatest head coach of all time. And honestly if Bill falls short of that people will constantly be giving Tom Brady more credit for his success than the hoodie.
How Is The Internet Feeling?
So with all of that in mind I decided to go online to The Patriots Subreddit as well as on X (formerly Twitter) to see how some anonymous and infamous Pats fans were handling the putrid puke pile that has been this season. And one thing seemed obvious to me…
We are going THROUGH this!
I am a college drop-out which means I at one point thought I could be a psychologist. I couldn’t make it through one semester. However that was long enough to become familiar with the 5 stages of grief. If you don’t know they are: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance.
