|Welker scores on the J-E-T-S (suck)|
Well, it seems lil Wes is even tougher than I had thought. That sonofabitch was MEDICALLY CLEARED TO PLAY for the start of training camp yesterday. He wasn't gonna be ready until November at the earliest and now he is strapping on the helmet and getting back to work. There are those asshats out there who hate the Pats and the HGH whispers have already started. Perhaps, but who gives a shit? There are a lot of things out there designed to help people heal quicker that are not banned in the NFL (surgery, physical therapy, Playboy mansion parties). But I subscribe to the more realistic belief that Welker is a superhero. Give him a cape and a utility belt and he's fukkin Batman. Either way, my favorite player since Troy Brown is back and looks ready to play game 1. There I go again, gettin' all tingly over football. I think I have issues.
The offseason tends to sap memories, so let me point out some things that are not talked about that will give us some optimism this year. Last year, our receiver core consisted of Joey Goaway and David Dropsy McDropsy Pants Aiken. This year we have Holt, Brandon Tate and David Patten making his return. We have Tommy Brady-Bunchen strapped up on the first day of training camp without a contract. No holdout for #12. This guy will have a deal before Labor Day. Fred Taylor is healthy and still have Kevin Faulk, Sammy Morris and the other guy who likes to fumble at the one yard line whose name escapes me who should be playing semi-pro ball fahchristsake.
When is kickoff?
