Patriots: Multiple losses on both sides of the ball could lead to a rebuilding year in Foxboro

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….

Patriots: Belichick has to a lot to figure out as life without Tom Brady begins

March 19, 2020

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…

Thank you Tom Brady

March 18, 2020

The day that some of us never thought would come has come. Tom Brady is done. Not with football but with the New England Patriots. The greatest quarterback of all time will not be riding off into the sunset as a Patriot. Instead, he will be taking his talents south to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It wasn’t suppose to end this way for Tom Brady in New England. We weren’t…

Patriots: The unimaginable has happened. Tom Brady is leaving the Patriots

March 17, 2020

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…

Patriots: Brady to the Bucs? It might be his only option outside of New England

March 15, 2020

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,…

Patriots: The numbers don’t add up when it comes to retaining Tom Brady

img_5260.jpg
March 15, 2020

When it comes to the re-signing Tom Brady, the numbers don’t add up for the Patriots. I know Patriots fans don’t want to hear that but unless Bill Belichick makes cuts elsewhere or gives Brady a longer term deal at less money, it will be tough to bring him back. The perception is Belichick doesn’t want Brady back but the reality is, the Patriots cannot afford to pay Brady what…

Patriots: Which of their free agents should the Patriots keep and which should they let go

img_5255.jpg
March 15, 2020

The Patriots have 17 free agents. 15 of them are unrestricted free agents and 2 of them are restricted free agents. The salary cap for the 2020 season will be $198.2 million dollars. The Patriots currently have roughly $26 million dollars to spend. That is not a lot of money so you can almost guarantee that they will make a couple big name cuts this off-season. Right tackle Marcus Cannon…

Patriots: Top 6 needs in free agency

March 10, 2020

With free agency opening a week from Wednesday, we are going to start a week long look at the Patriots and free agency. Today’s focus will be on the Patriots top needs in free agency. Bill Belichick must use free agency to improve the the roster. He cannot simply rely on the draft. 1. Tight end: Ben Watson, Ryan Izzo and Matt LaCosse combined for 36 catches and two touchdowns…

Patriots: 49ers rumored interest in Tom Brady could lead to a trade for Jimmy G

March 4, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj There’s no chance in hell this really happens.  However, with all the talk of San Francisco suddenly being a real player for Tom Brady in free agency it’s worth looking at the mind-boggling scenario. With numerous reports around the NFL from extremely credible sources, there has been legitimate chatter over the last few days – but really the last 24 hours – that would suggest the…

Patriots: Veteran quarterback options for the Patriots if Tom Brady signs elsewhere

February 29, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj I was hoping it wouldn’t come to this. Free agency doesn’t start for another two weeks (technically,) but if you’re to believe many of the swirling reports, Tom Brady is as good as gone. While of course there is always the chance that Robert Kraft swoops in last minute to save the day, I believe the lack of ass-kissing from Belichick towards Brady is ultimately going…
