Boomer is ALWAYS positive about the pats whenever he is on the WEEI morning shows. They could lose 2 games in a row by 50 and he would still say they are a great team and are contenders. Maybe instead of calling it a hot take listen to him because when he starts being negative there is probably a good reason.
You literally just gave reasons why nobody should care much what he is saying in your first two sentences before then telling people that his newest take is not a hot take because "probably there is a good reason". Why should I give someone the benefit of doubt when he is the same kind of person who keeps telling people everything is fine if they lose 2 in a row.
Credibility works both ways.
