We all know how it’s usually looked when he went to Denver in his career, so this was probably a nice little mental hurdle…

Patriots: Recapping Bill Belichick’s weekly OMF interview on WEEIn

This week’s interview with Bill Belichick by Glenn Ordway, Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria was the best one  yet. Some failed humor regarding nicknames made for some outstanding awkward silence, but Bill also had some interesting stuff to say regarding Sunday’s 36-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders.

A little less than 24 hours after his first career win as a head coach, Jeff Hafley was back in the office meeting with the media on Sunday.

BC fans nationwide woke up feeling like a million…

September 11, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06 I’ve never played the game of football, but man, it was hard not to wake up and feel the void left by silent stadiums on Friday night.
