1. Patriots:


* Gray hoodie knocked it out of the park
* The three thoughts I came away from this game – Patriots are on fire, I love watching Suh lose and I felt terrible for Jonas Gray (at least once in ten times Fox showed him it looked like he might cry)
* Don Cherry once put clips together of opponents going after Bobby Orr’s – someday they will be doing that of safeties going after Gronk’s knee
* I don’t think I’ve ever seen Jim Caldwell talk
* Because of the routes Tom Brady specializes in throwing – Dr. Stern at BU’s CTE center should look at Troy Brown’s, Wes Welker’s and Julian Edelman’s heads earlier than later
* I love Suh yelling at Brady “Don’t f****** run at me” and then his 90 shirt got buried in the turf on the Blount TD
* #91 Jason Jones went Night Train on Brady with a fore arm shiver to the chest
* Not to be negative but long snapper Danny Aiken is a problem (great pick up and punt by Ryan Allen) Continue reading Connelly’s Top Ten: Kraftapoolooza – Pats and Revs Win! »

Jonas Gray

Before Jonas Gray ran over the Colts for 199 yards and the first four touchdowns of his career Sunday night against the Colts, he was a stand-up comedian.

“Back in the day, I called myself a funny guy — did a little stand up,” Gray said Monday. “I was pretty successful at it here and there. I was booed off the stage a few times.” Continue reading Meet Jonas Gray, the Comedian (Video) »
