Boston College: Eagles scrimmage Saturday, first full Saturday slate finally kicks off

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06 Can you believe we’re finally here? Just a month ago – August 11th to be exact – the Pac 12 and Big 10 cancelled their football seasons. The decision sent the possibility of a college football season for the entire country into an absolute spiral. The uncertainty that has hovered for the last several weeks has been worrisome, but the first official Saturday full of college…


Patriots: Our projected 53 man roster

It’s that time of year where all of us in the media around here try to get into Bill Belichick’s head when it comes to who will make the final roster. It is usually a meaningless venture but one worth undertaking nonetheless. So, without further ado. Here is my projected 53 man roster for the Patriots. Offense Quarterbacks (3) Cam Newton Brian Hoyer Jarrett Stidham Running Backs (5) Sony Michel…


Patriots: It’s official. Cam Newton is named the Patriots starting quarterback for week one

According to the Boston Globe’s Jim McBride, the Patriots have named Cam Newton the week one starter against the Miami Dolphins. The news is not that surprising considering Newton has been the Patriots best quarterback thus far in training camp. Although in fairness to the other quarterbacks, Newton has struggled at times too. Bill Belichick and Newton’s teammates rave about his leadership and worth ethic and selected him to be…

The deal could pay Fournette up to $3.5 million dollars with incentives. Tampa Bay already has veteran LeSean McCoy and Ronald Jones in the mix and they drafted Ke’Shawn Vaughn out…


Patriots: Patriots surprisingly cut Mohamed Sanu

Image courtesy of David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports The Patriots cut veteran wide receiver Mohamed Sanu this evening. Eleven months ago the Patriots gave up a second pick for Sanu in order to upgrade the talent around Tom Brady. Now Sanu is gone. Despite struggling in camp and rumors circulating that Sanu was in trouble, I didn’t think the Patriots would cut him but alas they did. Sanu told Josina Anderson…


Patriots: The Patriots offense this season will look a lot like 2001. Run, run, pass

I have been saying it since Tom Brady left town on March 18th. The Patriots will be a run first team in 2020. After they signed Cam Newton in July, I reiterated that point and thus far in camp, it appears that I am right. Bill Belichick is going back to his roots in a sense. He is going back to his second year when the Patriots pounded the football…


Boston College: Preseason disrespect not going unnoticed for the Eagles

Image courtesy of John Tlumacki/Globe Staff. By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06 If for some reason you choose to look at preseason prognostications for the 2020 college football season – an unprecedented year that is going to be as unpredictable as a Kramerica Industries rubber ball filled with oil experiment – then that’s your prerogative. It’s impossible to take any type of prediction on what teams will look like this season seriously,…


Boston College: Eagles announce the addition of Texas State as the home opener and when they will kick off at Duke

Boston College announced today that their opener against Duke on September 19th will be a noon kickoff. The announcement comes on the heels of the school announcing that they added Texas State as their non-conference home opener for September 26th. The Eagles wrapped up fall camp last week and are now preparing for Duke and a revamped schedule. A schedule that now features six home games and five away games….


Patriots: Belichick shines in goofy Subway commercial

Say what you will about Bill Belichick but he has more oersonality than we give him credit for. I think this commercial is fantastic and it illustrates that Coach Hoodie is more than just a football genius. He actually has a funny side to him. The timing of the commercial is a little odd. By all accounts, marketing executives have been hounding Belichick for years to do commetcials and he…


Patriots Training Camp Preview: Linebackers

Rookie Josh Uche must make an immediate impact for the Eagles. Linebacker was a strength for the Patriots last season but thanks to free agency and COVID-19 opt outs, the position appears to now be the weakest part of the defense. Kyle Van Noy, Elandon Roberts and Jaime Collins all left via free agency. Stalwart Dont’a Hightower opted out due to COVID-19. That leaves third year middle linebacker J’Whaun Bentley…
