Patriots: It is time for a shift in philosophy when it comes to the Patriots passing game

January 9, 2021

Now that the 2020 season has ended, it is time to access things and to figure out where the Patriots can improve for the 2021 season. Aside from upgrading the personnel, which would go a long way in ensuring that this team can compete again, the Patriots also need to consider a philosophy change on offense. It is too early in the off-season to tell as to whether or not…


Patriots: Newton throws three TD’s, Pats end brutal 2020 with a win. Now what?

January 4, 2021

Photo by Billie Weiss/Getty Images Where was this for the past three months? Granted, it came against the Jets, but the New England offense looked great on Sunday in a 28-14 win to close out the strangest year in Patriots history. Cam Newton was probably playing his last game in a Patriots’ uniform and made the most of it, throwing for 242 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. Newton…


Patriots: 2020 ends the same way it began for Pats, with an ugly home loss

December 29, 2020

Photo by Adam Glanzman/Getty Images On January 4, 2020, the Patriots lost the first home game of the calendar year when the Titans beat them in the Wild Card round, closing out Tom Brady’s Patriots career. On Monday night, the Patriots closed out 2020 the same way it began, with an embarrassing home loss. This time it was the AFC East champion Buffalo Bills hammering the Pats 38-9 to give…


Patriots: Recapping Bill Belichick’s weekly OMF appearance on WEEI

December 23, 2020

Forget what we said about any of the other interviews this year. This one was the best, hands down. Some of the local media has finally had enough of Bill Belichick acting like they’re beneath him and started to (sort of) call him out for answering questions like a child. While there’s still the segment of the media who will forever worship the ground he walks on, there are guys…


Patriots: Dolphins end Pats’ playoff hopes with ugly win

December 21, 2020

John McCall/Sun Sentinel For the first time since 2008, the Patriots will not be part of the NFL postseason. New England continued to trot out an offense that couldn’t compete with some high school teams in this state in a 22-12 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. The lackluster effort leaves the Patriots at 6-8 with two games left against the Bills (next Monday night) and Jets. Just to make…


Patriots: Pats embarrassed in prime time by Rams, playoff chances all but dead

December 11, 2020

AP Photo/ Ashley Landis Are all the people that wanted this team to stick with Cam Newton and make a playoff push happy now? After last night’s putrid, disgusting, embarrassing 24-3 loss to the Rams, New England is now 6-7 and in all likelihood going to miss the playoffs for the first time since 2008. The Rams(9-4) held the Patriots to 220 yards of total offense and 10 first downs….


Patriots: Welcome to the Gunn show – Olszewski’s big day propels Pats to 45-0 win

December 7, 2020

(Photo by Will Lester, Inland Valley Daily Bulletin/SCNG) Raise your hand if you thought the Patriots would beat the Chargers by 45 points on Sunday. Put your hand down. You’re lying. New England’s special teams unit had two touchdowns, the defense gave up just 258 total yards while forcing two turnovers and Cam Newton only threw for 69 yards in the 45-0 shellacking. Hell, even Jarret Stidham and N’Keal Harry…


Patriots: Patriots survive ugly day, beat Arizona on Folk’s 50-yard field goal

November 30, 2020

If 179 yards of total offense and nine completions from your starting quarterback on Sunday was somehow visually pleasing – or even worse gives you confidence that this team can still be competitive in January – no one…


Patriots: Houston We Have A Problem – Watson dominates, Pats fall to 4-6

November 22, 2020

AP/Eric Christian Smith Okay, so, forget what we said last week. Following an impressive performance against Baltimore, I wrote that any Bill Belichick coached team should never be counted out. Well, the Texans shut that down real quick. Deshaun Watson single-handily destroyed the Patriot defense (380 total yards) and the New England offense wasted a chance to force overtime on the last possession of the game, ultimately falling 27-20 in…


Patriots: Pats defense and the weather smother Ravens in stunning 23-17 upset

November 16, 2020

We all saw this one coming, right? The Patriots were rightful 6.5-point underdogs at home heading into their matchup against Baltimore on Sunday night. The entire country assumed that the Ravens would roll as the Patriots’ transition into mediocrity continues. Instead, the football gods – or maybe Bill Belichick – brought a monsoon to Gillette Stadium for the majority of the game on Sunday night with howling winds and sideways…
