December 28, 2020

The Washington Football Team cut 2019 first round draft pick Dwayne Haskins this afternoon. Haskins was cut for a variety of reasons most notably for his performance on the field.

After some questionable off the field decisions recently and his poor performance…

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 21, 2020

Yesterday’s 22-12 loss to the Miami Dolphins effectively ended the Patriots season as they were eliminated from playoff contention. Look on the bright side. At least we don’t have to listen to talk about a “path” anymore. With the loss, the Patriots will now play out the proverbial string against the Bills and the Jets. For the first time in 11 years and only the second time in the last…

December 21, 2020

John McCall/Sun Sentinel For the first time since 2008, the Patriots will not be part of the NFL postseason. New England continued to trot out an offense that couldn’t compete with some high school teams in this state in a 22-12 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. The lackluster effort leaves the Patriots at 6-8 with two games left against the Bills (next Monday night) and Jets. Just to make…

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…

After last night’s putrid, disgusting, embarrassing 24-3 loss to the Rams, New England is now 6-7 and in all likelihood going to miss the playoffs for the first time since 2008. The Rams(9-4) held the Patriots to 220 yards of total offense and 10 first downs….
