NEFJ Notebook: Patriots release Inman and Allen. Activate Edelman and Thomas

The Patriots made some moves following Saturday’s pre-season win over the Titans. Here are my thoughts on the moves that were made this week. 1. The Patriots released Dontrelle Inman after the veteran receiver requested his release. Inman has since signed with the Chargers. Inman saw the writing on the wall. He knew he couldn’t beat out rookie Jakobi Meyers and he decided it was better to move on. 2….


Patriots: Carolina Panthers (1-1) at New England Patriots

It is week 3 of the pre-season and the Patriots return home to host Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. The third pre-season game is usually when the starters play so expect to see many of the starters in action tonight. Here are five thoughts on tonight’s game. 1. The starters will play tonight: The starters will play tonight. How long depends on Bill Belichick and the coaching staff. My…


Patriots: Josh Gordon is poised for a big year statistically. If he stays on the field

The NFL reinstated embattled wide receiver Josh Gordon on Friday. Gordon was indefinitely suspended in December for violating the league’s substance policy. After being in a treatment the past few months, the league is once again giving him another chance. By all accounts, Gordon isn’t just a great player, he is a good person as well. Gordon’s teammates in both Cleveland and New England speak highly about him on a…


Patriots Rewind: Patriots 22 Titans 17

Game Rewind: The Patriots overcame a sloppy start and came from behind to beat the Titans 22-17. Here are five thoughts on the game. 1. Damien Harris dazzles in his debut: Rookie third round draft pick Damien Harris got his first game action in a Patriots uniform and he impressed. Harris carried the ball 14 times for 80 yards and he caught 4 passes for 23 yards. Harris ran hard…

Patriots: New England Patriots (1-0) at Tennessee Titans (1-0)

The Patriots visit old friend Mike Vrabel and the Tennessee Titans tonight. After three days of joint practices, the two teams are ready to apply what they practiced on the field tonight. Here are five things to look for tonight. 1. Quarterback playing time: With Tom Brady not playing, it will be interesting to see how the Patriots divide up the snaps between Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham. Stidham ideally…


High School: 10 thoughts entering the 2019 season

CM will once again be a favorite to come out of D1 South. The 2019 season kicked off today in Massachusetts with programs across the state opening up training camps. With that in mind, here ten thoughts to kick off the season. 1. The Catholic Conference is once again loaded with St. John’s Prep, Catholic Memorial and Xaverian all having a chance to win a league title. St. John’s and…


UMass: Tempo will be the name of the game when it comes to the Minuteman offense this season

New UMass coach Walt Bell was hired to reinvigorate a program that was stuck in neutral under former coach Mark Whipple. One of the ways Bell plans to turn the program around is by installing a fast paced, up tempo, spread offense. Bell was the offensive coordinator under Willie Taggert at Florida State last season where the Seminoles ran the “Gulf Coast” spread offense. Like most spread offenses, the Seminoles…


Patriots: 2019 Wide receiver preview

N’Keal Harry gives the Patriots some much needed size on the perimeter. The Patriots re-tooled their receiving corp this off-season. Bill Belichick used a first round pick on Arizona State receiver N’Keal Harry and added several veteran free agents including Demaryius Thomas and Dontrelle Inman. The Patriots also re-signed Phillip Dorsett and gave Julian Edelman an extension. Here is a break down of the six receivers we think will be…


Boston College: The 2019 Eagles will go as Anthony Brown goes

For the Boston College Eagles, the 2019 season will go as junior quarterback Anthony Brown goes. Brown has flashed elite potential at times but inconsistent play and injuries have kept him from playing to his potential. The Eagles offense will once again center around running back A.J Dillon but a revamped offensive line may need time to put it all together so new offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian may lean on…
