a stout defense by La Kifo
In an appearance Friday on Hallmark Channels, which I had to drive to my grandmothers assisted living facility in the Bronx to watch, show "Home and Family", Mr. Montana had some interesting views on comparing quarterbacks from different eras of the game.
"He's obviously having thisgreat career, but I just think that it's hard to put anyone in that bucket," Montana claimed, "Even before he got five, you look back at some of the guys that some people don't even know, Sammy Baugh or Otto Graham … (Graham) won like seven championships", Montana would continue to state, "They were so far ahead of their time. It's hard to compare guys from then to now, and how they would compare here and how we would compare back then."
Can Joe Montana hurry up and go senile already? I'd rather here him talk about his imaginary trips to outer space than him say, 'the guys from 1930-1940, who threw the ball 10 times a game are the best who ever played it'.
I am not mad at Montana, just disappointed. The guy retired in 1994, he's had thirteen years to grow some unmanageable mental health issue but he simply refuses to go down that road. I could understand if he said something along the lines of, we were all good, Brady is the best of his time, and I am the best of mine. He doesn't need to say Brady is the best, I don't care about that. Brady doesn't need to be the best in the eyes of those south of the wall, damn Wildlings.
New Englanders do not need the affirmation of silly puppets sitting, waiting for their masters to twirl the strings. Yet, it feels like I am not in the majority when I say this. I do mean to be mean, because my gut is telling me anyone sober still speaking about how the rest of the sports world hates the Patriots, disrespects the Patriots have some underlying inferiority complex that they are projecting onto men wearing tights chasing after a ball.
Clearly, my intention is not to belittle the game I played for over 8 years, but to belittle the people who think national sports media owns them something. They don't, and I am sorry that you've lead a life in which sports has become the most important fixture. I don't want to convert my sarcastic jabbing into real reprimanding but when other fan bases talk shit about the Patriots, they are either doing it because or towards the idiots that perpetuate the nonsensical idea of the Patriots v. the World.
Dumbass, every team is them against the world, but not really the world, more of the US. I don't know about other teams and regions but the Patriots do not have any allied fan base fronts. There are no other groups of fans that sympathize and support us, as fans of the Patriots. So stop lumping everyone together against us. Obviously, it is us against anyone else, but that does not mean the everyone else is on a united front.
