Round Table: Final Improvements

    What is the biggest area the Patriots need to improve upon as they head into their final two games?   Jason: It's hard to highlight any one area. The pass rush could stand to be a little more consistent. Pass protection could certainly improve. Better play from the cornerbacks would be helpful. But when […]

Round Table: 49ers Game Take Aways

In your opinion, what was the biggest takeaway from Sunday Night's wild game? Raj:   While the Patriots did put on a good show during the latter phases of the game, I just think they ran out of gas. But they shouldn’t have needed to score 28 points to tie the game so what I take […]


NFL MNF: Monday Night Fiasco

In the worst officiating debacle since the 1972 Munich Olympic Games when incompetent game and table officials literally robbed the United States men's Olympic basketball team of a gold medal, the National Football League became the laughingstock of professional sports when on-field replacement officials and league-employed replay officials botched a last second call on a […]

Game Preview: Patriots vs. Bills

On New Year’s Day, the New England Patriots (12-3) will play their final game of the 2011 regular season against the Buffalo Bills (6-9). With all the news around Tom Brady’s shoulder this week, this game has some meaning to it for the Pats. Not only would the Patriots end the year on a eight […]

Fantasy Forecast: Week 17

Tom Brady The Patriots still have plenty to play for in Week 17, so don’t expect Brady to spend much time on the sidelines. He returned to practice this week, so I wouldn’t worry too much about the shoulder injury. The Bills defense sucks, so expect Brady to put up his usual 300+ yards and […]

Week 17 NFL Pick ‘Em

Through the first 16 weeks, we’ve picked exactly 100 games each.  This makes calculating our percentage quite easy, and my 52%, albeit still far behind the rest of the pack, IS better than if I had just flippd a coin for every game.  So put that in your pipe and smoke it, Trevor!   I’ll also […]

Foxboro Blog Top 12: Week 16

Things got a little bit crazy last week with Christmas and the Top 12 needed to get deferred.  You would never guess the amount of angry emails we received demanding that we bring it back this week (unless you happened to guess zero).  Anyway, without further ado, here is the most current edition of the […]

Opening Lines: Week 17

The Patriots opened as 12.5-point favorites as they host the Bills in Week 17. It’s a foregone conclusion that the public is going to back the Bills heavily based on this spread. Buffalo beat New England earlier this year, and they’re coming off a commanding victory over Denver. New England’s defensive strategy the past several […]

Week 16 Risers and Fallers: A Tale of Two Halves

 In a disturbing trend, the Patriots started off slow. Well, that might be an understatement. By the end of the half, Tom Brady and the offense had gone scoreless on seven drives while the defense surrendered 17 points to Matt Moore. Whatever was said in the locker room at halftime certainly did the job, as […]

Week 16 NFL Pick ‘Em

As the dust begins to settle, this game is becoming more and more of a two-man race.  Stephen’s got a comfortable four game lead over Rick, and after that, things start getting a little dicey.  Still, this game is far from over.  If Philly and KC prevail, Rick will have cut the deficit in half, […]

Game Preview: Patriots vs. Dolphins

As we head into the Christmas season, there are only two games left in the 2011 regular season. The Patriots (11-3) find themselves in control of their own destiny to have home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. On Saturday, they take on the 5-9 Miami Dolphins. New England has the momentum now after their 41-23 […]

Fantasy Forecast: Week 16

Happy holidays! Tom Brady Brady is likely to be the deciding factor in a lot of fantasy title games this weekend. The Dolphins have been torched by the pass this season, giving up 21 TDs through the air and allowing 250+ yards per game. The Dolphins should score enough on offense to keep the Pats […]

Q&A Session with Phins Phocus

  Once again, it’s time for our weekly Q&A session with a blogger who covers the Patriots’ upcoming opponent.  Up this week is Daniel Eliesen from Phins Phocus.  Here’s what Daniel had to say about the Phins and Pats leading up to Sunday’s game. 1.    Since the Dolphins lost the first eight games of the […]

Opening Lines: Week 16

The Patriots opened as 10-point favorites as they host the Miami Dolphins in Week 16. You’ll have to excuse me today. I’m a bit hung over after celebrating the Pats win and AFC East title, the Ravens loss and the Pittsburgh loss that gave the Pats the inside track toward the top seed in the […]

Week 15 Risers and Fallers: “The Other Tight End” shines in a career day

Tebow Time took a time warp yesterday. The first quarter looked more like the late-game version of Tim the Savior, with the Broncos destroying the Patriots makeshift defense. The rest of the game? Bubble burst. Thanks to some solid schematic adjustments and some costly Broncos bumbles, the Patriots scored 27 unanswered points, shut down the […]
