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…

1. First, Happy Fathers Day to all the dad’s out there. Moms are the glue that keeps a household together. Dads are the foundation. 2. I have to admit, it stung seeing Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski in Buccaneers uniforms. It wasn’t suppose to end this way but thus is life in pro sports.

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: Comparing the Last Dance to last season for the Patriots

May 18, 2020

By Kevin Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj The Patriot dynasty deserved a better ending. Unless you’re not a sports fan or have been living under a rock, “The Last Dance” documentary on ESPN about the Chicago Bulls of the 90’s has been the most popular thing on television (aside from Tiger King maybe, which I can proudly say Iv’e never seen) during this pandemic. Of course, this is a football site and not a…


Patriots: Brady, McDaniels rift isn’t that big of a deal. It happens more than you think

May 16, 2020

If the Last Dance has taught anything, coaches and players disagreeing with each other is a way of life in sports. That is why Gary Myers report on Monday that one of the reasons Tom Brady left the Patriots was his deteriorating relationship with Josh McDaniels is a non-story to me. Hard to present an order of why Tom Brady didn't want to return to Patriots. But one thing has…

April 9, 2020

Tom Brady’s long awaited interview with Howard Stern took place yesterday morning. After an hour plus of chatting it up with Stern, we learned that Brady has tried weed, swears, pisses off Giselle and knew that last season was his last with the Patriots. There were six things that Brady shared that I want to talk about. Here they are. 1. Brady knew 2019 was his last season in New…


Patriots: Brady press conference just didn’t seem right

March 25, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj Tom Brady is officially a Tampa Bay Buccaneer following his introductory conference call on Tuesday afternoon. However, Brady sounded more like a child who was being sent away to boarding school immediately regretting his decisions rather than a free agent eager to take on a new challenge.  Brady – as he’s done his whole career – took the high road during the call, refusing to truly…


Patriots: Ranking the top ten moments of Tom Brady’s illustrious career with the Patrots

March 22, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj Day three: I’ve got plenty of food and toilet paper left, but Tom Brady is still a Tampa Bay Buccaneer. It still hasn’t gotten any easier, and since we’ve got nothing but time on our hands, how about a good old fashioned list?
