Patriots: Breaking down Bill Belichick’s weekly OMF interview on WEEI

September 15, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06 Last week we decided that Bill Belichick’s weekly “Patriots Monday” interview with Ordway, Merloni and Fauria would be a topic of discussion for us all season long. Glenn Ordway has been perfecting the interview game for decades now. Meanwhile, as a former player, Christian Fauria sometimes has the ability to get some more thoughtfulness out of Bill compared to most media members. It’s clear that Bill…

Patriots: Cam Newton has a chance to rewrite the story of his career in New England

September 12, 2020

When the Patriots signed Cam Newton in July, many of us wondered how it would work in New England? The flamboyant Newton and the stoic Bill Belichick wasn’t exactly a match made in heaven. Fast forward to today and the two parties couldn’t be happier that they have joined forces. At least that is what they tell us. For Newton; a former league MVP, this is an opportunity to turn…
