Ok, sorry for the late
post.I know you were waiting for
it.Let’s see how I did with the
predictions from the Colts game on Tuesday.
Prediction:Let’s call this game the Jonah Gray game
2.0:We were really getting after the
run game against the Dolphins, and I expect that to be a feature of this
offense more often than not.Michel is
hopefully rounding into form and I think he gets the rock over 20 times and
goes over 100.Hopefully his alarm clock
goes off on Friday.
Result:You know how I know God hates me?Sony ran for 18 carries for 98 yards and a
tuddy.Doesn’t come much closer to
nailing a bold prediction than this.(Also
sorry for calling him Jonah Gray, but I was making a commentary on how
forgettable he is….thats my story and I’m sticking to it.)
Prediction:Gronk barely plays:I think Gronk will be active but will barely
play.If he does, he will be just a
distraction.I think they want to keep
him fresh, so he will not be part of the game plan andwill have less than 3 catches.Let’s see if Dwayne Allen can be called out
of the witness relocation program.
Result:I couldn’t have been much more wrong
here.Go figure.He was on the field for something like 63/64
snaps so he was a full go.7 targets, 6
catches for 75 yards.Also Dwayne Allen continues
to be a blocking only TE.I’m ok with
it, here’s hoping Gronk can keep it up.
Prediction:Special teams is special:I don’t have a way to really measure this, so
will likely take credit no matter what.But I’ll know it when I see it.Expect special teams to be a difference maker.
Result:Ok, so no TD or turnover, but did anyone
else see that Nicholas Grigsby hit on punt coverage?That was a tone setter (kind of).Case closed, I win again.
Prediction:Pats Win 38-24.The Patriots extended preseason is over.They have a banged up opponent, at home, on a
short week.I think there is a good
chance the Colts roll right over.Put
them in for some garbage time points and I think we roll.
Result: I nailed this final score exactly and it’s
the second time this season I have done that.I think this should count for extra if we are being honest.
Final Result:Besides the Gronk one, I’m doing pretty
well.Nailing the final score makes me
better than you.There I said it.
