Your thoughts on yesterday’s Pats implosion, summed up perfectly, as usual, by @JerryThornton1
Our pal Jerry always does a bang-up job with his recaps. And yes, usually the funny comes more with defeat than victory. And obviously we all hope he never has to write another one of these this season. That said, here’s what you and I were all thinking, it’s just typed out and even spelled correctly! Thanks, Jer.

Happy Kickoff Weekend Gameday Morning, Patspeoples! You know your job today. Do It. #SquishTheFish
Happy Kickoff Weekend, ya humps! Now, who wants to win some Pats swag, autographed merch and tickets to games this hopefully magical season?
Yeah, I thought so. I know you. You like free stuff almost as much as the Pats. And when it’s free stuff involving the Pats? Few things are better…unless they involve pizza, beer and supermodels. Hey, I’m working on weaving al that in, too. Gimme time…
Anyhoo…much like my pals over at Pats Propaganda and Patriots Life, I’ve teamed up with NRG and the Patriots in their season long sponsorship. “OK, good for you, Fitz. But what does that mean to me, one of the many fools that follow your internet exploits, watch your videos and freak out every Sunday during Pats games like yourself?” Well, thanks for asking, it means that I’ll be mentioning the two together to raise awareness about good things like football and clean energy, using the hashtag #PatriotsNRG. When you see that hashtag that means giveaways, goods and game tickets will usually follow. You read that right, guy! I will be giving away several pairs of tickets to Pats games this season. And hopefully yours truly will be there, too. We can rally up just outside Revis Island for some Cheers ‘n Beers, say hi, GFY, exchange stories about BradyBoners. Good stuff.
OK, so stay tuned for more info and holler back atcha boy when you see the #PatriotsNRG hashtag. Until then, be well, save me a slice, Squish the Fish and Let’s Go Pats!!!
Logan Mankins is everything we would ever want in a football player. It is hard to imagine a better player at his position, a tougher competitor or a person to represent our program. He is one of the all-time great Patriots and the best guard I ever coached. Logan brought a quiet but unmistakable presence and leadership that will be impossible to duplicate. Unfortunately, this is the time of year when difficult decisions have to be made - and this is one of the most difficult we will ever make - but like every other decision it was made for what we feel is in the best interests of the team.
— Of course Hoodie gushes about Mankins after he trades him. Much love for the big guy, though. Pretty much all that need be said. He’ll be missed. Might not be twilighting in career, but best days may be behind him. Still a force, a presence, a great Patriot. Pats added alotta depth at guard, youthful beef (great band or porn name?) and I think they’ll be OK there. Remember how well Josh Kline played in Baltimore last December? I’ll take a healthy serving of that and some Cannon fire, too. And hey, if Tim Wright can come in, learn the system, be the good kind of Rutgers, and be 75% of Hernando, plus not be murdery? It’s a win. A surprise win. A bittersweet win. But perhaps a necessary win for the Pats.
I’m gonna go have a 16 ozer for Mankins. You guys GFY, and let’s go Pats!
