Ex-Patriots linebacker Gary Guyton, recalling when he and teammate Adalius Thomas were sent home by coach Bill Belichick after snowy travel made them late for practice, took to Twitter on Thursday when this latest snowstorm made travel treacherous.

A miffed Thomas told the media back then that "this isn't the Jetsons" and couldn't be blamed for not being able to jet over the snow in something designed by Spacely's Sprockets. His days in Foxboro were numbered after that.

More recently, linebacker Brandon Spikes found himself in Belichick's doghouse and eventually on season-ending injured reserve when he had a little trouble getting to practice on time because of the weather.
