Just in case you were wondering if Chris was going to fit in New England we now have a reason to be in love with our new Defensive End. The article is witty and spot on in regards to the Deflategate fiasco we have all endured in New England. He has some excellent quotes in the article but none better than his commentary on the Patriots organization.
Long wrote “Let’s get down to it: this story isn’t as much about air pressure as it is about the cult of the New England Patriots. The Patriots are really good at two things: winning football games and not giving a shit what you think about them. This modus operandi has earned the Patriots an equal number of fans and haters.”
This guy is already one of my favorite players and I haven’t seen him put on the jersey yet. From the article you can hear an educated fan of the game who understands the Patriots to a tee. Losing Chandler Jones today was a tough pill to swallow but there is no better cure than Chris Long right now. He came for the right price and he is going to be a very welcome addition to the locker room. Let’s just hope he is ready to compete after only playing 6 games last season.
