It's nice to see that with all the controversy surrounding the New England Patriots lately, they still have a sense of humor. Or at least wide receiver Julian Edelman does.

Edelman posted a parody video re-imagining the Patriots as the stars of the popular 1980s sitcom "Growing Pains" or as the video indicates, "Growing Pats."

It is remarkably spot-on and simply hilarious. The video features several of the Patriots players as well as coach Bill Belichick. Hopefully for the next Throwback Thursday, Edelman can re-imagine the Patriots as another popular sitcom.
