Default Re: Letterman Jackets

Dump these stupid letterman jackets. Look and play like a professional, not some high school jack wads. This is an absolute embarrassment and we looked like a confused high school team that has no business on the same field as the Pats. These guys should be embarrassed and pissed off that they looked so bad. Stop saying "This is the most important game in franchise history", every game should be. Any elite team doesn't say crap like that. They get it done and let heir play and the score speak for itself. I don't believe this is a Super Bowl caliber team.

Calm down people tge jackets aren't the reason this team got waxed. No diffrent than the bald heads are not the reason the Indy colts are winning. Play better than the opposition and you win. Play like krap against good teams and you get destroyed. That's what heppened. It's not the jackets. Calm yourselves.

No the jackets represent where their focus was. Because it was not on the Patriots.

Or the rally cap phase some baseball teams employed a few years back.

Then there's the rally monkey thing

The jackets are meaningless to the team and didn't have anything to do with focus.

The jackets do give fans and media something to latch on to and mock though. Breaking out high school jackets and saying that it is the biggest game in Texan's history, only to get stomped by cold-blooded professionals is simply not good for the team's image.

Seriously? Cmon now. You think they were focused on clothes and not on playing football? You are wrong. They played like garbage. They were coached like garbage and the result was being thrown out of Boston like garbage.

Sorry, but I just don't think arriving at the stadium dressed like a JV team on MNF against Brady and Belichick was a good idea. And i'll also take the catch phrases and hand gestures over it any day.

How can the players ever look at those jackets now and not be reminded of the ass-whoopin the Patriots put on them?

That's a legitimate point. The first road trip they took with their new team-spirit-approved wardrobe ended in a Custer's Last Stand type massacre. Talk about ruining something before it even got started.

Maybe the Patriots would like to hang one over their fireplace.

I thought about that....

That was my initial though as well BUT, If I'm a player on that team I'd want to keep wearing them. Hard to explain, but it's about time they adopted an us against the world type of attitude and wearing those jackets again would show unity and defiance to losing...

If they take them off then that will make them look wishy washy and flimsy IMO.

Screw the perception...you though it was a good idea at first, don't lose faith...Keep doing what you're doing and prove people wrong.

Good point, man. Very good point. Use that ass whoopin as motivation over the next six games. NEVER FORGET GETTING YOUR BUTTS KICKED TWICE. The jackets could help keep that focus.

Jerod Mayo says the Patriots won't follow suit.

Quote:
"I don't think we'll get letterman jackets around here," Mayo said. "We're just trying to win games. I think that'll be the mindset around here for a long time."
