Former NFL scout and current NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah tweeted out a document yesterday that he received in Ravens scout school. I think you’ll enjoy this… We were given this handout during a scout school from my time with the Ravens.

March 20, 2020

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….

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…

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…

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,…

February 27, 2020

With the on field workouts of the NFL Combine kicking off tonight, I thought I would share some of my thoughts on what this combine means for the Patriots. Here are ten thoughts. 1.It doesn’t appear the Patriots have met with Tom Brady’s agent Don Yee as was reported earlier in the week. In fact, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald has reported that the Patriots have not spoken to…

Patriots: Bill Belichick goes outside the circle in hiring by hiring Jedd Fisch

img_3845.jpg
January 25, 2020

The Boston Globe’s Jim McBride tweeted out last night that the Patriots were hiring veteran college and NFL coach Jedd Fisch as an offensive assistant. Fisch has a wealth of college and NFL experience as both a coordinator and as a position coach. He has coached quarterbacks and receivers during his career. One would think that he will coach one of those two positions. On paper, it would seem Fisch…
