Patriots: 2020 Patriots could better off with Newton than they would be with Brady

July 1, 2020

Image courtesy of By Kevin Stone/@kstone06 The 2020 Patriots as constituted are better off with Cam Newton as their quarterback. Now, since most people only see, read and hear what they choose to see, read and hear, let me be PERFECTLY CLEAR about this… Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time. Tom Brady will always be better than Cam Newton. Tom Brady deserves a statue outside Gillette…


Patriots: Cam Newton is the latest Belichick reclamation project

July 1, 2020

Bill Belichick has never been shy when it comes to adding proven talents to the Patriots roster. The list of former pro bowlers and all pros who have called New England home during the Belichick tenure is impressive. In his 21 years in New England, Belichick has signed or traded for the following former pro bowlers: Bryan Cox, Rodney Harrison, Corey Dillon, Junior Seau, Torry Holt, Randy Moss, Albert Haynesworth,…


Patriots: Ho, Hum, Pats, Belichick put in timeout again by NFL

June 29, 2020

By Kevin Stone/@kstone06 Ho, Hum, the Pats got punished again. On Sunday night just minutes after the stunning news that they had signed Cam Newton, the punishment from “SpyGate Two” came down (that’s not by coincidence either) and it was fairly heavy. New England was fined a million dollars, lost a third round draft pick in 2021?and are banned from having any team production crews from being at games for…


Patriots: Patriots shock the NFL by signing Cam Newton

June 28, 2020

Just when you thought the Patriots were going into 2020 with Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer as their starting quarterbacks, Bill Belichick reminded us that he is one of the shrewdest executives in the NFL by signing free agent quarterback Cam Newton to an incentive laden one year deal. Speculation had been rampant all off season that the Patriots quietly had an interest in Newton and that they were monitoring…


Brady as a Buccaneer: First Look

June 16, 2020

All photos courtesy of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. By Kevin Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj  Is everyone ok? The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady unveiled “official” photos of him in the uniform for the first time on Tuesday, and social media quickly buzzed. I am in the minority here and think he actually looks kind of normal – in a time where there is none – or at least it doesn’t seem as…


Patriots: The Patriots are not going to sign Colin Kaepernick. Here is why

June 13, 2020

I want to start off by saying that the purpose of this piece is not to get political. I am not trying to make a political statement here. I am simply looking at this from a football perspective. The Patriots should not sign Colin Kaepernick. The idea has been floated around these parts in recent days by both politicians and the media alike but it is a foolish idea. Why…


Opinion: Enough with the fake crowd noise talk

June 8, 2020

By Kevin Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj Alright, enough with the idea of piping in crowd noise using actual stadium speakers. For some mind boggling reason, adults can’t seem to be able to live with the fact that there is a real possibility that every NFL game this season will look, sound and feel different. In a time where nothing is normal, dealing with empty football stadiums on Thursday, Sunday and the occasional Saturday…


Patriots: Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham work together as they prepare to compete for the starting quarterback job

June 8, 2020

By Kevin Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj It was reported last week that Jarrett Stidham had been organizing throwing workouts with some of his teammates. Then, we began hearing that Brian Hoyer was there too, just incase anyone was worried. Discussion on local sports radio on Friday and over the weekend soon turned to whether or not Hoyer was really the one organizing the workouts and just being a good “quarterback caddie” (credit Chris…


Opinion: Random thoughts on the week that was

May 30, 2020

By Kevin Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj For the first time since what feels like March, we’ve had a bit of a dead period this past week in terms of football news. As both college football and the NFL continue to try and navigate the pandemic and get athletes back into buildings to safely begin working out with teammates, here’s a few random thoughts on the world of football as we head into June:…


Patriots: Patriots get creative in extending Chung and signing their rookie class

May 25, 2020

By Kevin Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj While we all wait for some actual football practices to break down and analyze in (hopefully) a couple months, the Patriots continued to tie up loose ends on the offseason. Not only did Bill Belichick finish signing his entire draft class with the final piece of the puzzle coming in the form of Kyle Dugger, but apparently BB talked safety Patrick Chung out of retirement to extend…
