Patriots: Julian Edelman’s Hall of Fame candidacy is complicated

April 17, 2021

Upon announcing his retirement earlier this week, people immediately began debating whether or not Julian Edelman is a future Pro Football Hall of Famer. The debate was magnified when the Pro Football Hall of Fame put out a tweet stating that Edelman would be eligible for the Class of 2026. It only furthered the argument of whether or not Edelman is actually a Hall of Famer. With the news of…


Patriots Draft: The Patriots attending Justin Fields second pro day reinforces that they are interested in him at the right cost

April 14, 2021

Much has been made today about the Patriots attending Justin Fields second pro day. The Patriots also attended Fields first pro day two weeks ago by sending front office executive Elliot Wolf and a scout to the workout. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Director of Player Personnel Dave Ziegler were expected to attend today’s workout. The team attending today’s workout is obviously a sign that they are interested in Fields…


Patriots: Edelman retires, does he belong in the Hall of Fame?

April 13, 2021

For many New England Patriot fans, Monday was a sad day. Julian Edelman announced his retirement with a video that was posted on social media, thus driving another nail in the coffin of the Patriots dynasty. The three most important pieces to the Super Bowl titles in 2014, 2016 and 2018 – Brady, Gronk and Edelman – are all gone now. If you were one of those folks who somehow…


Patriots: Latest news on Julian Edelman means the Patriots are still in the market for a receiver

April 9, 2021

According to a story by the Boston Herald’s Karen Guregian today, Julian Edelman is not expected to play the entire 2021 season. Edelman’s troublesome knee injury is expected to keep him sidelined for part of next season. How long before Edelman returns is anyone’s guess but it sounds like he is going to miss the start of the season. With the Patriots already thin at receiver, not having Edelman is…


Patriots Draft: A price change could motivate the Patriots to trade into the top 10

April 6, 2021

The Jets trade of Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers yesterday took another team out of the quarterback mix in the top ten of this year’s draft. Carolina picked up Darnold’s fifth year option after the trade was completed meaning they will not be taking a quarterback with the eighth pick and are open for business as a possible trade partner. With Carolina now out of the running for a…


Patriots: I wouldn’t surrender anything more than two mid round picks for Jimmy G

March 27, 2021

The 49ers and Dolphins trade yesterday illustrated just how expensive it is going to be for the Patriots to trade into the top ten if they want to draft one of the top four quarterbacks in this year’s class. With the 49ers trading up, one has to assume that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is now available in a trade. San Francisco quickly squelched that notion by saying they intend to hold…


Patriots: 49ers trade gives Bill Belichick a pretty good idea of what moving into the top ten will cost

March 26, 2021

The San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins made a massive trade today with the 49ers trading pick 12 in this year’s draft along with a first round pick in 2022 and 2023 and 2022 3rd round pick for the number 3 pick in this year’s draft. The 49ers obviously traded up to take one of the four quarterbacks projected to go in the top five. Whether it’s Zach Wilson, Justin…


Patriots: Re-signing Guy and White was important on and off the field.

Guy, White
March 26, 2021

The Patriots re-signed both defensive end Lawrence Guy and running back James White on Wednesday. Guy signed a four year $11.5 million dollar deal to remain with the team while White signed a one year deal. On the surface, that may not be a big deal  but bringing back two guys that have won Super Bowls here and understand the Patriot Way was vitally important to the reshaped roster. Guy…


Patriots: In many ways, Patrick Chung was the ultimate Patriot

March 24, 2021

Image courtesy of Matthew J. Lee/Boston Globe Patriots safety Patrick Chung announced his retirement last Friday after 11 seasons with the organization. Chung was a second round pick out of Oregon in 2009. The same draft class that produced Sebastian Vollmer and Julian Edelman. The Patriots traded out of the first round that year and ended up drafting 14 players. Chung was the first player picked. Upon arriving in New…


Patriots: ‘Patriot Way’ continues to fade away as Newton acknowledges the noise with latest Instagram post

March 19, 2021

“F**k it, I’m back in.” That was my buddy Mike’s reaction in a group text at about 8 P.M. on Thursday night after Cam Newton put up another Instagram post of himself following a workout. It was probably the same reaction many Patriots fans had, the fans that refuse to believe this team can be as bad as it was last year. These videos are nothing new, as Cam has been…
