January 22, 2021

Like most teams around the state, the Hingham football program has had to get creative to keep things fresh. Whether it’s mentally or physically, the Harbormen coaching staff has done everything they possibly can to make sure the squad is ready to go if they’re given the green light in just about four weeks. “My high school coach who actually got me into coaching, and he’s now our quarterback coach,…

One down, three to go. Tom Brady is now three wins away from a seventh Super Bowl ring after the Buccaneers took care of a pesky Washington Football Team 31-23 on Saturday night in the NFC Wild Card playoff game.

Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? If you’re like me and you still need something to root for this football season because you can’t stand the thought of getting invested in the Celtics or Bruins just yet, thank god for the GOAT. Tom Brady had arguably his best game in two or three years the day after Christmas as he and the Buccaneers thumped the Lions 47-7. Tampa Bay (10-5)…

Patriots: Recapping Bill Belichick’s weekly OMF appearance on WEEI

December 23, 2020

Forget what we said about any of the other interviews this year. This one was the best, hands down. Some of the local media has finally had enough of Bill Belichick acting like they’re beneath him and started to (sort of) call him out for answering questions like a child.

December 22, 2020

Down 17 points to the Atlanta Falcons at halftime and then again late in the third quarter on Sunday, Tom Brady did what Tom Brady does. The Bucs stormed back to tie the game with 11 minutes left, then, Brady hit Antonio Brown for an eventual 46-yard game-winning touchdown to steal a 31-27 victory from the jaws of defeat. It was deja vu for poor Matt Ryan, but more importantly…

Tampa Bay Tuesday: Bucs win ugly against Vikings, move to 8-5

December 15, 2020

If you thought Bruce Arians would have his team ready to come out of the gate fast following a bye last week, what have you been watching? As I suspected, the Bucs looked flat early against the Vikings on Sunday, going three-and-out on the first two offensive possessions of the game. However, thanks to four missed field goals, a missed extra point and downright putrid play from Kirk Cousins late…

Patriots: Recapping Bill Belichick’s weekly OMF appearance on WEEI

December 15, 2020

Peter Joneleit/AP Photo Things had been far too nice during Bill Belichick’s weekly appearance on Ordway, Merloni and Fauria the past few weeks. With the Patriots’ winning games, the annoyed, wise-ass Bill was still lingering in the interviews but wasn’t omni present. That changed on Monday when the guys talked to the head coach for the first time since the embarrassing loss to the Rams. Answers were short, and the…
