Yes, Google can help with finding that. What it can't help with is making sense of it.

So basically... Pats trade away JG10 and then stay pat??  ???

Meanwhile Buffalo (division rival) just traded for Kelvin Benjamin and the contending Eagles got Jay Ajayi (for peanuts).

Have to admit I feel let down.  :(

I saw he was released today, and was wondering if the pats would make a move. This is awesome for our offense.

He has an injury. Who knows when he will be ready to play.

The internetz are bubbling with speculations that he's faking that because he decided to mail it in after Rodgers went down. He's an odd cat so who knows.

Reports are Bennett might have a torn rotator cuff and need to be put on IR.

I could buy the rotator cuff part, but not the need to be put on IR.  If that were the case, the Pats wouldn't have claimed him (or would have changed their mind after his physical).  No way Bill would get him just to put him on IR if he plans on retiring after this year

It seems to me that he'll miss some time and be good to go by the playoffs, or he'll play hurt for the rest of the year.  I guess we'll have to wait and see.
I'm bitter.

Nice half so far for the Pats.   

Glanced over at the Chargers-Bills box score -- four 1st half interceptions by the Bills rookie Peterman.....   And now a lost fumble.

Now it's 5 interceptions in the 1st half.  Got to be a record.

I remember hearing the news earlier this week and couldn't make sense of it. You don't replace a QB of a 'winning' team with a 5th round rookie unless he looks like the 2nd coming of Tom Brady...even then, Brady didn't get the nod until his 2nd year. Terrible, inept decision. I actually feel bad for Peterman - not his fault.

On a Pats note - it sure is nice to keep on cruisin' through the schedule. Let's hope we stay hot all the way through the SB. Brady sure looks like a top notch MVP right now!
