March 15, 2020

NFL players approved a new CBA this morning by a narrow margin. The final vote was 1019 to 959. Approval required a majority of the players voting for the proposal. The players who paid dues were given a ten day period to vote on the proposal. Despite facing heavy opposition from star players such as Aaron Rodgers, J.J Watt, Russell Wilson and Michael Thomas, the new CBA passed. The agreement…


Patriots: 20 players the Patriots could target in free agency

March 15, 2020

With free agency set to open next week, we examine 20 players that the Patriots could target in free agency. Our list is based on scheme fit and the team’s most pressing needs this off-season. All of this of course depends on whether or not the players vote for the proposed CBA on Sunday. Quarterbacks *Tom Brady should be priority number for the Patriots but we are going to take…


Patriots: 2019 Season Preview

September 8, 2019

The Patriots kick off the 2019 season on Sunday night at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers. New England will be raising their sixth Super Bowl banner. The franchise is well positioned to add an NFL record 7th Super Bowl title this season. Here is my breakdown of the offense, defense and special teams. Offense: Bill Belichick responded to the March retirement of Rob Gronkowski by loading up at wide receiver….


Patriots: Rob Kraft’s reputation is going to take a hit regardless of whether or not he is charged

February 25, 2019

(Gregory Payan/AP) When news broke on Friday that Patriots owner Robert Kraft was being charged with soliciting prostitution at a spa in Jupiter, Florida, I was stunned. Like most people, several thoughts crossed my mind. Why would Robert Kraft visit an establishment like this? Why would a 77 year old billionaire want to ruin his reputation by getting caught up in something like this? None of it added up to…


Opinion: Hiring young offensive minds is all the rage in the NFL but it is a risky proposition

January 10, 2019

Three of the six head coaching openings that have been filled in the NFL this week have been filled by three young offensive coaches who are going to be first time head coaches. Matt LaFleur, Kliff Kingsbury and Freddie Kitchens are all relative unknowns in the NFL. Yet all three got head coaching job this off-season. Thanks to the success of 33 year old Sean McVay with the Los Angeles…


NFL: Week 10 Picks Vs. The Spread

November 13, 2018

There is money to be made this weekend but it’s tricky. Here are my picks for Week 10. Buffalo Bills at New York Jets (-7.5, 36.5): The Bills are awful offensively and Matt Barkley won’t change that. Even with Sam Darnold out, the Jets should have no problem scoring and covering as a home favorite. Atlanta Falcons at Cleveland Browns (+6, 50.5): Something tells me the Browns will find a…


NFL: Week 8 Picks Versus the Spread

October 28, 2018

A good blend this week. There are some easy money making games on the schedule. Here are my picks. Philadelphia Eagles (-3.5, 43) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars: Neither excites me given that both are struggling offensively. I’m going with the Eagles simply because they are better offensively. Baltimore Ravens at Carolina Panthers (+2.5, 44) The Panthers are quietly playing good football. They had a huge come from behind win over the…


Fantasy Football: Start Em, Sit Em For Week 7

October 21, 2018

There are some quality match ups on the schedule for week 7. Here are five guys you should start and five you should sit. Start Em! 1. Nick Chubb, RB, Browns at Bucs: Chubb is now the man in Cleveland and expect him to get the majority of touches moving forward. The Bucs defense has struggled against the run at times this season so Chubb is a sensible play. 2….


NFL: Week 7 Picks Versus the Spread

October 21, 2018

Here are my picks for week 7. It has been a bit of an up and down ride thus far but I am feeling a bounce back week. Tennessee Titans vs. Los Angeles Chargers (-6.5, 45): The Titans offense has struggled thus far this season. I cannot see them keeping up with a Chargers offense that has big play potential and can score. Take the Chargers in this one. Houston…


NFL: Week 6 Picks Versus the Spread

October 14, 2018

The NFL is back in London this week. Some quality plays on the schedule this week. Here are the games we chose to put our money on. Seattle Seahawks vs. Oakland Raiders (+3, 48): In a match up of two teams that are pretty much even, I’m taking the Raiders as a dog in this one. I think Oakland wins in a shootout. Los Angeles Chargers (+1, 47) at Cleveland…
