1. Steelers:

* No Ben

* Gotta be leading the NFL in pot smokers over the last ten years

* Steelers have 24 inductees in Hall of Fame

* Patriots have two hall of famers – Hannah and Tippett (if you give them credit for Curtis Martin or Michael Haynes – 4)

* Great receiving core – Brown, Jesse James, Sammie Coates

* Watch out for Antonio Brown on punt returns – averaging 14.6

* Very Pittsburgh memory was the AFC championship win with Troy Brown scoring on punt return

1. Patriots vs. Bengals:

MISC

· Rumors are the Foxy Lady had to triple their security Saturday night with the Bengals in town

· Should have got Blount out of that game – the Bengal punks were bringing out the worst in him – lucky he didn’t do something silly

· Pacman went for Gronk’s legs – don’t blame him for getting mad – once you wound Gronk up though no one could shut him up

· People love doing the Safety sign (admit it did you do it at home)

· Two QB’s were a combined 25-32 in first half

· How long before the ESPN analysts start complaining about Pats running up (by the way that score put the game over for total points)

· I like the sign Patriots put up on their digital board on a big play – “Get Loud – Do Your Job”

· As soon as CBS said 78-0 record at Gillette when leading at halftime – I got nervous Continue reading Connelly’s Top Ten: Bengals in Town – Hide the Woman and Children and Lock the Doors »

1. Patriots vs. Bengals:

  • Bengals could get knocked out this week and go 2-4
  • They are 3-8 last 11 games – including pre season
  • Look out for head hunting Burfict
  • Brady’s first game back in Foxboro – Standing O upcoming
  • Brandon Lafell has more TD than Gronk – 2 to 0
  • AJ Green – Logan Ryan with help over the top
  • Bengals have one of those teams that can hurt a QB
  • Am I going to have to watch twinkle toes Blount in short yardage
  • Kicker Mike Nugent 0-2 passed 50 yards

1. Patriots vs Browns:

BRADY

  • Cherish every game
  • Brady had lost his last two games in Ohio (lost to Ohio State also)
  • Everytime he gets booed on the field – legal team should get fired up for civil suit
  • How cool was the Brady chant all game?
  • Gotta love a score on the first drive
  • Goofy but satisfying first down call on his run in front of a Cleveland coach – ala John Wensink versus North Stars – if you’re a Brown you can’t allow that

MISC

  • After five games – the Patriots have won games with three different QB’s
  • Cleveland loses two quarterbacks – so I ask again would you trade Jimmy G. right now for two first round picks
  • Jimmy G career completion percentage 68.9% / Brady 63.6%
  • Oh – Oh Cy Jones alert – two fumbles last week, got burnt for TD today and then ejected from the game (CBS really didn’t have a camera that could pick up the receiver diving at his knees after the play?)
  • Charlie Whitehurst will be playing the lead tonight in Jesus Christ Superstar
  • I’m thinking Whitehurst carries a European carry-all (a man purse)

1. Patriots:

  • Patriots are 3-1 without the greatest quarterback in NFL history and one reception from the greatest tight end in NFL history (also didn’t have their top back or best offensive lineman)
  • Congrats to Rex Ryan who beat an injured / 3rd string QB who he had tried to intimidate before the game – tough guy
  • Can’t win if you’re cornerback (Logan Ryan) has 17 tackles
  • Is anyone worried about Gostkowski since the missed extra point last year against Denver – he has missed two of his last 5 and I think he missed some in the exhibition season
  • Not good that you’re second all pro tight end Bennett went off with injury
  • 1-12 on third down is not going to win you many games

1.Patriots vs Dolphins

  • Suh is looking to hurt someone
  • Would you do this trade – Jimmy G (at his highest value right now) to Cleveland for a first and second round pick and sign Hoyer or Matt Hasselback with the goal of going 1-2 until Brady is back
  • Why not just leave Gronk out until the halfway point
  • Patriot predictions – 17-13 Pats which includes a defensive or special teams TD / over under beers drank before game in parking lot 4,621,364 / Kraft sightings – 4 / Logan Ryan interception /
  • By the way I heard from a bunch of you – there were two Kraft sightings in Arizona – the streak lives

2. Red Sox –

  • Wow – that should do it – that’s a dagger – Hanley crushed that 99 mph ball
  • The eighth inning ended at 10:18 and the ninth inning ended at 11:03 – 45 minutes
  • Someone named Robbie Scott gave the Red Sox three shutout innings

Continue reading Connelly’s Top Ten: Hanley Wow! / Look Out for Suh / Spitting on National Anthem now a Fad! »

1. Patriots:

MISC

  • One of the big regular season wins in Belichick era
  • Conceivably the Patriots were missing five of their top six offensive players – No Brady, Gronk, Lewis, Solder, Vollmer / on the road / against the NFC favorite / And a couple of calls went against them – and still win
  • Handed them two TD’s with fumbles and still won
  • This coming from a white guy, but the black fist by Bennett and McCourty doesn’t that mean black power, which speaks to them supporting fractions within America instead of working on bringing people together
  • Fifth straight season Gronk won’t play 16 games
  • I think if you can only sign two of next year’s three free agents you let Hightower go because he’s injury prone and sign Butler and Collins
  • Two big fumbles – wait to Pats haters (Felger) starts talking about the air pressure
  • Brady should sue
  • Didn’t like Edelman knocking down chain gang member and Blount spiking the ball into ref and no apologies or help up
  • Another huge underdog and they win
  • Great catch by Fitzgerald in end zone
  • Brilliant timeouts by Arizona with four minutes left / bad use of timeouts by Belichick
  • I was off on both predictions – Pats win and Jimmy G over 85 qb rating
  • One week closer to Gronk, Brady, Lewis, Ninkovich
