Patriots: Multiple losses on both sides of the ball could lead to a rebuilding year in Foxboro

2020 has sucked so far. Let’s be honest. It is not just because of the Coronavirus. It has sucked to be a sports fan in Boston. First Mookie Betts was traded to the Dodgers. Then the Bruins and Celtics seasons were suspended because of the Coronavirus. The final blow came this week when after twenty years of being a Patriot, Tom Brady left and signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers….


Patriots: 5 ways the Patriots could help Jarrett Stidham as the starting quarterback next season.

Photo courtesy of Maddie Meyer/Getty Images The twenty year tenure of Tom Brady is over. TB12 has left the building and to quote Rick Pitino, he is not walking through that door. The Patriots have to figure out who their next quarterback is going to be. Is it going to be a veteran? Or is it going to be second year quarterback Jarrett Stidham? If it is Stidham, Bill Belichick…


Patriots: Belichick has to a lot to figure out as life without Tom Brady begins

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj It’s been two days since Tom Brady decided to end 20 years of dominance here in New England. Admittedly it still hasn’t hit me as much as I think it will once the season rolls around and he’s taking snaps in a different uniform, but there is one thing I’m not sure people are truly thinking about. What does this all mean for Bill Belichick? And…


Thank you Tom Brady

The day that some of us never thought would come has come. Tom Brady is done. Not with football but with the New England Patriots. The greatest quarterback of all time will not be riding off into the sunset as a Patriot. Instead, he will be taking his talents south to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It wasn’t suppose to end this way for Tom Brady in New England. We weren’t…


Patriots: The unimaginable has happened. Tom Brady is leaving the Patriots

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj March 17, 2020 – a day that will live in New England sports infamy. Fittingly, snow was falling on Tuesday morning when Tom Brady stunningly announced he’d be continuing his football journey somewhere other than New England via instagram. The man who seemingly provided some of his best football in bad weather had one final dagger to throw through the snow, but this one wasn’t headed…


Patriots: Patriots placing the franchise tag on Joe Thuney is the smart move

The Patriots placed the franchise tag on left guard Joe Thuney this morning. By tagging Thuney, the Patriots can either sign him to a long term deal or trade him. Thuney will make $14.7 million dollars in 2020. The Patriots released a statement announcing the move. “Joe has been a model teammate and an essential element to our success … Utilizing the franchise designation allows both sides more time to…


Patriots: Mainstays Devin McCourty and Matthew Slater sign two year deals to remain in New England

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj Even before the “legal” tampering period began for free agency on Monday, the Patriots were busy locking up two important veterans over the weekend. Special teams captain and locker room leader Matthew Slater (2 years) and safety/fellow locker room leader and captain Devin McCourty (2 years) each signed extensions.  Of course, the biggest fish in the free agency pond not only for the Patriots but for…


Patriots: Brady to the Bucs? It might be his only option outside of New England

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj Tom Brady. Six-time Super Bowl champion. And…Tampa Bay Buccaneer? With teams reportedly dropping like flies in the Tom Brady free agent sweepstakes, it appears as if the Bucs and Patriots are the last two teams TB12 has to choose from (although you can’t count out the Raiders just yet). What would it do to his legacy if he finished his career with a mediocre franchise? Well,…


Patriots: The numbers don’t add up when it comes to retaining Tom Brady

When it comes to the re-signing Tom Brady, the numbers don’t add up for the Patriots. I know Patriots fans don’t want to hear that but unless Bill Belichick makes cuts elsewhere or gives Brady a longer term deal at less money, it will be tough to bring him back. The perception is Belichick doesn’t want Brady back but the reality is, the Patriots cannot afford to pay Brady what…


Patriots: Which of their free agents should the Patriots keep and which should they let go

The Patriots have 17 free agents. 15 of them are unrestricted free agents and 2 of them are restricted free agents. The salary cap for the 2020 season will be $198.2 million dollars. The Patriots currently have roughly $26 million dollars to spend. That is not a lot of money so you can almost guarantee that they will make a couple big name cuts this off-season. Right tackle Marcus Cannon…
