Patriots: Breaking down the Patriots 2020 schedule with and without fans

By Kevin Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj Well, well well, now we know what Jarret Stidham’s first 16 game slate is going to look like…or do we? Now that the schedule is out and the Patriots don’t have it easy by any means, it’s worth wondering whether Bill will start Brian Hoyer early in the year with some tough road games on the docket or just throw Stidham in the fire and see what…

Patriots: Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene offer scheme versatility in the passing game

When the Patriots drafted tight end Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene in last month’s draft, it harkened back to the 2010 draft when the Patriots drafted Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. Gronkowski and Hernandez made an immediate impact and Gronkowski went on to become arguably the greatest tight end in NFL history. Patriots fans are hoping that Asiasi and Keene could produce similar results to Gronkowski and Hernandez but that…


Patriots: Belichick stays focused on becoming the winningest coach after Don Shula’s passing

By Kevin Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj With the passing of legendary coach Don Shula, discussions have quickly began as to where Shula belongs on the proverbial “best coach ever” list.
