This week on the Dose we are gauging the overreactions from Week 1 of the NFL season! Are the New England Patriots in trouble? Are the Kansas City Chiefs a true contender? And are the Indianapolis Colts, and Jacksonville Jaguars going to be improved in 2017? We look at some of the biggest overreactions that we are hearing, and try to sift through what is actually true.

We have some fake news coming out of the NFL that is being spun as a controversy.

Remember when the Big 12 Conference was going to take the world of college football by storm? That seems a like really long time ago.

Tom Brady filling out last will and testament after being named Madden cover boy

Just months after winning his fifth Super Bowl ring, it seems that the career and possibly life of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady may be coming to an end.

138328881_crop_north

Last week, it was announced that Brady will be appearing on the cover of the latest edition of the EA Sports football video game Madden 18.  Landing the cover hasn’t exactly been a good omen for past players. Former Madden cover players that have been bitten by the curse include: Garrison Hearst (broken ankle), Eddie George (toe), Duante Culpepper (back), Marshall Faulk (ankle), Michael Vick (prison sentence), Donovan McNabb (hernia), Shaun Alexander (foot), Vince Young (general sucking), Brett Favre (joining the Jets), Troy Polomalu (knee), Peyton Hillis (strep throat…no really), Adrian Peterson (more of a curse for his child), and Richard Sherman (Tommy John surgery), and of course last season, Rob Gronkowski saw his season end early with a back injury.

Upon hearing the news Brady immediately contacted a lawyer, and began putting his affairs in order.

“It has been a fun ride.” stated Brady through tears.  “I have enjoyed not only my time in the NFL, but also my time on earth. Unfortunately, it seems that all good things must come to an end. I will be leaving all of my worldly goods to my children. I will leave my starting position on the Patriots with Jimmy G. I have to give a few bucks to my boys John Jastremski and James McNally. Those guys are true friends. Thank you to Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, all of Patriot Nation…oh, and one more thing…SUCK IT, GOODELL!”

Jimmy Garoppolo spotted subbing out Brady’s avocado ice cream

Fresh off their Super Bowl LI victory, there seems to be some discord among the New England Patriot’s locker room.

Despite being 39 years of age, starting quarterback Tom Brady is still playing at an all-time level. In 2016, Brady completed over 67 percent of his passes, while throwing for over 3,500 yards and 28 touchdowns. In over 400 passing attempts, he threw just two interceptions.

Brady has attributed his longevity to his healthy lifestyle. He has stated that he does not go out and party, choosing instead to go to bed early. He also avoids all caffeine, dairy, white sugar, white flour, and gluten.

He primarily focuses his diet on vegetables, lean meats, and only organic foods.

He has stated that one of his few allowable sweet treats is a homemade avocado ice cream that is made from coconut, avocado, and cacao powder.

Now, the Daly Dose has learned that backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been substituting Brady’s homemade confection, for what is actually Ben & Jerry’s Mint Chocolate Cookie.

“Look, I’m not saying that Brady isn’t one of the best ever…but did you see that pretentious list of foods he claims to eat? Give me a break. No one eats that crap.” Garappolo confessed. “I’ve been smuggling the Mint Chocolate Cookie into his freezer for months, and he thinks it’s just vegetables? There are actual pieces of cookie in it! If he really believes that was his homemade mess, Tommy might be getting a little closer to senility than people might think.”

When told of the news, Brady was obviously crushed. “Jimmy is a teammate and I thought he was a friend, but now I am forced to reevaluate our relationship.” said a dejected Brady. “Plus, I am really worried about what Gisele is going to do to me when she finds out. You won’t like her when she’s angry.”

But now the real question focuses on why the heir apparent to Brady would do such a thing.

Garappolo didn’t mince his words. “I have been sitting the bench for long enough. It is time for Jimmy to shine. And if getting him in trouble with Gisele, is what opens the door for me, then so be it. I ain’t going to Cleveland.”
