I can't even begin to describe how happy this makes me.
There IS a God.
Well, let's not get TOO giddy yet. The Pansies play the easiest schedule in the league, which means they'll still win ten games and make the playoffs.
However, that road just got a lot tougher. And I certainly don't see them being dominant without Brady. After all, they struggled to win yesterday and probably should have at least gone OT. But they'll still win their fair share because they have a whole team full of Messianic Figures. And heck, everyone on the team is a captain. Think they get a Captain Hook hat with that title?
I guess I'm pretty evil, but this doesn't bother me in the least. Not one bit. This whole "This is a HUGE loss to the NFL" stuff makes me want to puke. No fan outside of New England sees this as anything but a positive. All this means is that more teams have a shot, and that gets a lot more fans involved. I know that I'm more optimistic because of this.
As for Brady, I just don't feel the least bit sorry for him. He's got three rings, Matt Damon looks, and he's knocking up supermodels. If he never plays again, he's already had a great football career and can pretty much move on to whatever he wants to do. Good riddance, pretty boy, there will be no tears shed for you.
