The fact of the matter is, nobody outside of New England roots for the Patriots.

All of us loathe the Patriots.

It’s reached the point where we root against celebrity Patriots fans like Matt Damon, Elton John, Maria Menounos, John Krasinski, Conan O’Brien, Steven Tyler, the Brothers Affleck, the Brothers Wahlberg and that sports guy who had his own HBO show for a Boston minute.

Oh, yeah, Bill Simmons!

Objectively speaking, it IS amazing that Tom Brady appears to complete passes every game to some fella who was working at Radio Shack five days earlier.

The Patriots’ top receivers this season are Julian Edelman, who played at Kent State, and Chris Hogan, who played one year at Monmouth.
