And here we though with last year's King, Ben Roethlisberger, missing the playoffs, we wouldn't come close to matching 2009's Super Bowl numbers. We were wrong.
All it took was an injury to the Patriots' Wes Welker to open a spot for pseudo-Jewish Julian Edelman. The line for him: 6 catches, 44 yards, 2 touchdowns. The line for us: the second-best day in JONJ history. (Hard to beat the Super Bowl, after all. But it was close.)
But here's the sad thing: the Patriots lost, their season is over, meaning Edelman's reign as King of JONJ will likely be short-lived. We'll need another pseudo-Jew to step up to come close to matching these numbers. Sage Rosenfels, anyone?
Damn you, Brett Favre!
