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. While there’s still the segment of the media who will forever worship the ground he walks on, there are guys…

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…

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…

High School: NEFJ Featured Team of the Week – Minnechaug

December 11, 2020

As someone who has grown up in Waltham and Billerica, I will be the first to admit there is an eastern Massachusetts bias against western Massachusetts athletics. That’s just the way it is and the way it’s always been for as long as I’ve been alive. Up until 2012 I thought the western part of the state started in Milford. Having said all that and having now covered sports around…

Another win, another less annoyed and pissy coach this week. Still, the guys got into some interesting stuff out of coach Belichick as the Patriots stay out on the west coast to prepare for their Thursday night game against the Rams. Ordway opened the segment asking Belichick what’s been different and what’s allowed guys in all three phases to play with much more confidence and contribute in big ways over…

The same can’t be said for ISL programs. With different schedules both acldemecially and athletically, there is no way that ISL football teams could play in February and not interfere with spring sports. So,…

Boston College: Eagles looking to wrap up crazy 2020 season with a bang

December 4, 2020

We made it folks. Well, they made it. Back in March when there was plenty of uncertainty regarding the season, all anyone who was covering or following the football program wanted was an opportunity to see some actual games. Not only did Jeff Hafley and his staff provide that opportunity for the fan base and local media, but he got the entire program to buy in to an extent that…

Recapping Bill Belichick’s weekly OMF appearance on WEEIn

December 2, 2020

With WEEI in the midst of its “Giving Tuesday” fundraiser to help “K” cancer on Tuesday, we decided to hold off on the recap of Bill Belichick’s weekly OMF appearance until today. Ordway, Merloni and Fauria had a much happier coach on Monday than they’ve gotten in recent weeks, but there was still a few of those awkward silence Bill moments that this interview is now known for, but it…
