High School: What happens if there’s no high school football in Massachusetts?

July 12, 2020

By Kevin Stone/@kstone06  Two months ago if you asked me whether I thought there would be a high school football season or not in September I would’ve said absolutely. Pandemic and all, I’ve just always kind of thought that some things – school and high school sports being one of them – would be back to a new type of normal, but the bottom line is they would be back….


Chiefs sign Mahomes to 10-year extension, was it worth it?

July 6, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06 On Monday afternoon Kansas City decided to make Pat Mahomes a Chief for life. Ironically enough giving the near baseball player a baseball-like contract. The Super Bowl-winning QB signed a 10-year, $450 million extension that could ultimately turn into $503 million. The most important part of the deal though, is the $141.48 million he will have in injury guarantees. My first reaction was to laugh. Not…


Patriots: 2020 Patriots could better off with Newton than they would be with Brady

July 1, 2020

Image courtesy of By Kevin Stone/@kstone06 The 2020 Patriots as constituted are better off with Cam Newton as their quarterback. Now, since most people only see, read and hear what they choose to see, read and hear, let me be PERFECTLY CLEAR about this… Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time.

June 29, 2020

By Kevin Stone/@kstone06 Ho, Hum, the Pats got punished again. On Sunday night just minutes after the stunning news that they had signed Cam Newton, the punishment from “SpyGate Two” came down (that’s not by coincidence either) and it was fairly heavy. New England was fined a million dollars, lost a third round draft pick in 2021?and are banned from having any team production crews from being at games for…

All photos courtesy of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. By Kevin Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj  Is everyone ok? The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady unveiled “official” photos of him in the uniform for the first time on Tuesday, and social media quickly buzzed. I am in the minority here and think he actually looks kind of normal – in a time where there is none – or at least it doesn’t seem as…


Patriots: Let’s play Tom Brady Roulette

February 13, 2020

Image courtesy of Bill Sikes/Associated Press By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj As the end of February approaches, the reality of Tom Brady becoming a free agent for the first time in his career becomes more and more likely by the day. The Krafts are doing their best to spin it, implying they are “letting” Tom Brady enter free agency because it will be better for all involved to see who has…
