Patriots: Rob Kraft’s reputation is going to take a hit regardless of whether or not he is charged

February 25, 2019

(Gregory Payan/AP) When news broke on Friday that Patriots owner Robert Kraft was being charged with soliciting prostitution at a spa in Jupiter, Florida, I was stunned. Like most people, several thoughts crossed my mind. Why would Robert Kraft visit an establishment like this? Why would a 77 year old billionaire want to ruin his reputation by getting caught up in something like this? None of it added up to…


Patriots: OBJ to the Patriots? I have a hard time believing they will pay the price to acquire him

February 21, 2019

The Patriots reportedly made an offer to the New York Giants last summer for wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. I have a hard time believing that the Patriots would make the kind of offer it would take to land Beckham. That is not the way they operate as an organization. Sure, Bill Belichick traded for Brandin Cooks but as we saw, that didn’t work out. For all his faults, Beckham…


Patriots: Staff turnover makes for a busier than usual off-season for Bill Belichick

February 17, 2019

Fresh off their Super Bowl LIII win, the Patriots are basking in their glory. At least some of them are. Bill Belichick is not one of them. Belichick not only has to get ready for the combine, free agency and the draft, he also has to fill several openings on his coaching staff. New Dolphins head coach Brian Flores raided the Patriots staff and took with him three assistants. Receivers…

February 7, 2019

The Patriots have hired a familiar face as defensive coordinator to replace the recently departed Brian Flores. Former Rutgers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano is the new Patriots defensive coordinator. Schiano and Bill Belichick go back twenty years plus. They developed a strong relationship when Schiano was the head coach Rutgers. Belichick’s son and current Patriots safeties coach Steve Belichick transferred his senior year and was a long…


Patriots: It is official. The Patriots are one of the greatest franchises in sports history

February 4, 2019

The Patriots cemented themselves as one of the greatest franchises in sports history after beating the Rams to earn their 6th Super Bowl title in 17 years. The Patriots dynasty is pushing 20 years, which is unbelievable in this era of free agency and player movement. The Patriots have surpassed the Packers of the 1960’s, the Steelers of the 1970’s and the 49ers of the 1980’s as the greatest dynasty…

February 4, 2019

(Photo by Elsa/Getty Images) The Patriots defense delivered a performance for the ages last night thanks to a game plan for the ages. Bill Belichick and de facto defensive coordinator Brian Flores orchestrated one of the greatest defensive performances in Super Bowl history. Belichick and Flores shut down an offense that averaged 32.9 points per game and over 400 yards of offense per game. In many ways, it shouldn’t be…

February 4, 2019

Game rewind: The Patriots defense completely shut down the Los Angeles Rams en route to a 13-3 win and a sixth Super Bowl title. The game certainly did not live up to the hype but a win is a win. The Patriots are Super Bowl champs! Here are five thoughts on the game. 1. Defense was dominant: I don’t think anyone saw this type of defensive performance going into this…

Patriots: Super Bowl LIII game match ups

February 2, 2019

The Patriots and Rams will face off in Super LIII tomorrow night. When I look at these two teams, I see two teams that match up pretty evenly. On paper, the Rams have the more talented roster but the Patriots have a decided advantage in terms of experience. Here is how these two teams match up by positions. Quarterback: The Patriots have the advantage at quarterback. Tom Brady is playing…
