On a cold January ’12 morning Pats OC Bill O’Brien departed,
Leaving for Penn State, a job not for the faint hearted.
Shortly after, Patriots fans heard the great news:
The Prodigal Son returns, now the Super Bowl we can’t lose!
Today we know the result of the second battle of Eli,
The shakiness of the Patriots’ 4th quarter offense we can’t deny.
We must need a deep threat! We thought in the off season,
We got Lloyd, that seemed good, but didn’t franchise Wes for some silly reason.
Josh you did us well at OC from 2006-2008,
It was the era of Brady to Moss, but on Josh we cannot hate.
Then you were off to Denver where Jay Cutler said you could not be trusted,
For not reporting the taping of the 49er practice you were subsequently busted.
In 2010 you drafted Tim Tebow with your 25th pick,
This should have been a warning sign your judgement was thick.
Denver fired you before Tebow made his first start,
A backup QB who should never have made the depth chart.
Then it was on to the Rams, where during your hiring announcement
They said you’d have no personnel decisions, quite the pronouncement.
They let you leave after a miserable year,
Though the fans in Boston thought your recent performance was merely a smear.
When you came back we thought the Pats offense would shine like a Rolls Royce,
But thus far in 2012 you have made more than one questionable choice.
First you released Deion Branch for some Rams named Salas and Hoomanawanui,
Then had to bring back Deion because both of them were phooey.
We Patriots lost to Arizona (!!!), an offensive shame,
You decided it was high school and called a halfback throwback that game?
For the Ravens you called a trick play yet again,
The Woodhead reverse to Edelman lost them 13 yards, where was your brain?
Why you won’t let Tom be, let him throw the ball,
Is simply the biggest mystery of all.
At the end of the game against Seattle you chose to run Ridley,
Though earlier the Seahawks run defense showed he could gain diddley.
Last week in London, against your old team,
The offense played Patriots Football and the results were a dream.
The Rams made it easy with many instances of coverage blown,
Here’s hoping the offense is finally in the zone.
When the January pre-Super Bowl hiring was announced,
New England critics cried to the NFL: “unfairness!” and pounced.
But as the 2012 offense continues to go through these patches of rough,
Isn’t having Josh as the Patriots OC often penalty enough?
