Rodgers Out. Bad News for the Pats?

Mr. Rodgers won’t be entering the Patriots’ neighborhood on Sunday Night.I kid you not.  The first thing I thought when I heard that Aaron Rodgers would not be playing tomorrow was, “Crap.”  I know it seems completely crazy to be upset when your opponent’s starting quarterback is out of the lineup and your team has […]

Game Preview: Patriots vs. Packers

Once again, the New England Patriots went on the road to face a tough team in inclement weather and handled their business in dominating fashion. Last Sunday’s 36-7 win over the Chicago Bears proved that this offense can continue to play at a machine-like pace in nearly any set of circumstances. This Sunday, the Pats […]

Q&A Session with Two Packers Blogs

It’s once again time for our weekly Q&A session with an opposing blogger. Up this week is a double dose of Packers bloggers.  We asked Melinda Banks from Lombardi Avenue and the crew from Ol’ Bag of Donuts, a series of questions about The Packers, and they, in turn, asked me a few about the […]

Foxboro Blog Top 12: Week 14

These once stagnant rankings are stagnant no longer.  There was a flurry of activity in the Top 12 this week with only the top two old faithful teams holding their ground.  Making things even more interesting is the fact that a whopping eight teams will be playing other Top 12 teams this week!  We’ve got […]

Opening Lines: Week 15

Patriots-Packers Off the Board Pending Rodgers Injury NewsSunday night’s game between the Patriots and Packers in New England is currently not available on most sportsbooks pending news about the severity of Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ concussion sustained on Sunday against Detroit. For the purposes of this article, I’m going to assume that Rodgers will be cleared play. […]

Patriots Ice Bears, 36-7

The Bears’ vicious defense looked awfully cuddly Sunday afternoon There’s an old ancient Chinese proverb:  “When the snow falls, so does the Patriots’ opponent”.   Much was made heading into this afternoon’s game about the weather and the role that it would play in New England’s ability to come out of Soldier Field with a victory.  […]

Patriots Fantasy Football Forecast: Week 14

Tom BradyI urged owners to start Brady last week, but temper their expectations. This week, I really mean it. The weather in Chicago is expected to be horrific. Up to six inches of snow throughout the day, sub-zero wind chills, 20+ mph winds with gusts up to 45 mph. Basically, it’s what hell would look […]

Game Preview: Patriots @ Bears

I know how all you Patriots’ fans are feeling. You are all on a high after New England crushed the division rival “Hard Knock” New York Jets 45-3. Now, New England continues to play in a cold weather environment as they take on the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. It is good to finally see […]

Q&A Session with Midway Illustrated

It’s once again time for our weekly Q&A session with an opposing blogger. Up this week is Midway Illustrated, a great Chicago Bears blog that was one of the first football blogs to join up on the Bloguin Network. I asked the site’s lead writer, Brett Solesky, a series of questions about Da Bears, and […]

Foxboro Blog Top 12: Week 13

So much for stability…  Week 13 sent teams scrambling all over the place, with only three of our twelve teams holding their positioning from last week.  Two of them are our top two teams, the Patriots and Falcons, who both continued their winning ways.   Another interesting tidbit is that the NFC, for all the […]

Opening Lines: Week 14

Patriots Open as 3-Point Favorites On the Road Against BearsThe Patriots opened as 3-point favorites against the Bears this week after beating the unholy snot out of the Jets on Monday night. That Jets game doesn’t really relate much to this week’s article, but I just like talking about how bad the Patriots embarrassed the […]

Patriots Silence Jets, Win 45-3!

It’s a rare thing to experience a victory this sweet.  Off the top of my head, the three Super Bowl wins, beating Manning in the playoffs, and the AFC Championship rout over Pittsburgh in 2004 are the only ones that surpass what the Pats accomplished last night.  They say that revenge is a dish best […]

Game Preview: Patriots vs. Jets

Well, Monday night will be the Game of the Year in the NFL as the Patriots’ AFC East rivals come to Foxborough with the division, as well as potential home field advantage throughout the AFC Playoffs, on the line. Now, I am a New Yorker myself, so this game means more to me than any […]

Patriots Fantasy Football Forecast: Week 13

Tom BradyAfter enjoying an orgy of fantasy points the past few weeks, Brady owners should probably temper their expectations this week. Jets opposing QBs have combined to post a 74 QB rating this season, and New York has allowed just 15 passing TDs on the year. Anything more than 240 yards and two scores would be gravy. […]

Week 13 NFL Pick ‘Em

It’s official: what goes around comes around. Like I mentioned last week, it was a short-lived bragging rights privilege I held on to (myself and Rick were 5-0 in week 11.) But now I’ve come back to earth, sporting a dismal 2-3 in this past week’s Pick ‘Em. Rick is still in the clouds though, […]
