Patriots second-year defender Chase Winovich keeps dropping absolutely lovely quotes about New England’s dire situation.
For the first time in two decades, it’s not fun to be a Patriots fan right now.
But darned if second-year football maniac Chase Winovich isn’t trying to change that all by himself.
Though Winovich’s role has strangely decreased in recent weeks despite expectations that he’d eventually become an indispensable part of the team’s pass rush, he’s certainly not letting that put a damper on his quotability.
With the Patriots mired in a four-game losing stream and sitting on a 2-5 record sullied by Cam Newton’s game-ending fumble against the Bills, Winovich was asked this week exactly what the team can do to regroup and remain competitive at this point. His answer? You can’t make this stuff up.
Couldn’t have said it better ourselves! Really, we couldn’t.
Whether this is a veiled shot at the Republican Party or not we cannot say, but eating an elephant isn’t the normal reference point that your typical DE would make. Big steak? Sure. Gigantic mammal? That takes some creativity.
This isn’t the first time Winovich has spoken on a different plane from the rest of us, though. You might want to pay attention to what the wiry-haired Michigan Wolverine tweeted in the immediate aftermath of Newton’s game-changing play in Buffalo.
How is this a real guy who exists on Earth?
If the Patriots are going to surge forward towards a potential playoff berth in 2020, things will have to change fast, with a young and energetic Dolphins team also looking like a stronger opponent right now.
But if they’re going to be a playoff team in the years to come, Winovich is going to be a major part of it. So let’s celebrate his continued influence on what definitely appears to be a looser locker room.
