When I was a boy my father took my brother and I on a hunting safari in Botswana. Our guides name was Mothudi, which in Tswana means blacksmith. We left the camp early in the morning and drove around for hours until we finally saw an adult antelope. We got out of the jeep, then slowly and quietly moved towards it until we were in range. We were maybe 150 meters away when we stopped. Mothudi handed me the rifle.
I raised the rifle and looked down the scope. I focused the crosshairs onto the antelope and slowly moved my finger onto the trigger. Stop! Stop! Mothudi said. I lowered the rifle, and Mothudi pointed out an adult cheetah that was stalking the antelope from behind.
The cheetah was so stealthy it took us a bit to see it. Then out of nowhere a huge male lion ambushed the cheetah! The cheetah tried to escape but the lion’s claws were embedded too deep. The cheetah turned and let out a raspy high-pitched squeal as the lion pinned it to the ground. I remember the squeal like it was yesterday.
The cheetah tried to scratch at the lion’s face. The lion had none of it and swatted the cheetah’s paws away like they were a kitten’s. The lion grabbed the cheetah by the neck and clamped his jaws onto the cheetah’s head. The next sound I remember even more vividly. It sounded like someone was snapping a dozen sticks over their knee. It was the sound of the cheetah’s skull getting crushed.
It was the most impressive display of dominance I’ve ever seen. Even the antelope stopped to watch.
That's that I want it too look like when the Patriots play. The Patriots are the lion, the opponent is the cheetah, the desperate squeal is the Ravens, and the rest of the NFL is the antelope thanking its antelope god that it's not the cheetah.
The quickest way to become the lion is to trade Mallett to Cleveland for the 6th pick, and then trade that to St. Louis for 16 and 22.
Wouldn't the Browns have to be willing
to part with #6
for that to happen?
*By the way, Brother Knot: What's the Scorched Earth bit? I actually used the term in a Private Message to Brother Mayo, yesterday, and was then startled to see you using it as an HeadLine when I hit this Forum...
Except I couldn't find any Scorched Earth element to it: Looks like you're keeping all the major Players.
Is it just a Thing you do? Serious question.
