How Can the Patriots Stop the Run?

Kyle:  Nothing this year- but maybe in the future they shouldn’t cut guys who can play like Tommy Kelley just because there is a cheaper alternative on the roster. Sometimes you can’t just plug and play guys- sometimes the more expensive guy is a better player who will do more to help the team win. […]

Patriots tickets 24% above average for matchup vs Bears

It was only a few weeks ago the NFL world was up in arms over the New England Patriots getting off to a “horrible” 2-2 start. Three games later, the would-be declining Tom Brady looks as good as ever and his Pats are looking quite strong at 5-2. Time can cure all, it seems, but […]

Who is the Bigger Loss, Mayo or Ridley?

Rick: With Chandler Jones out for the next month, you have to say the bigger loss for the Patriots is Jerod Mayo. With Mayo out, the team loses a key leader on defense and someone who helps out against the run. Without Mayo and Jones, the team will be lacking two significant pieces on a defense that […]

Should The Pats Have Performed Better Against the Jets?

Is there any reason to be concerned that last Thursday’s game against the lowly Jets was such a close contest? Raj:  Not really. I mean yeah, we should be worried about how the Jets ran the ball like that. But on the other hand, I expected a close game. Except for the buttfumble game, isn’t […]

Redemption Story: Week 7 Risers and Fallers

Beyond the huge amount of relief I felt when Nick Folk’s potential game-winning kick ended up in the turf, there was also a sense of justice felt, knowing that the man who blocked the field goal had finally been redeemed.   None of us can forget the incredulous “pushing your own teammate” penalty that was […]

Week 7 NFL Pick ‘Em

Interestingly enough, one of our games from last week happened to be a tie.  That means we now get to all have that annoying -1 added to the end of our records for the season.  Thanks a lot, Cincinnati and Carolina.  When you tie, we all tie.

Getting to Know the Rivals: Q&A With One Jet at a Time

Recently, I had the honor of interviewing Brian Johnson, the lead content writer for the Jets blog, One Jet at a Time (you can also follow them @OneJetAtATime on twitter). Since the New York Jets are coming into Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots tomorrow night, I figured it would be cool to […]

The Sound of Silence: Week 6 Risers and Fallers

Thanks to a faulty DVR and my decision to be a good father and take my son to the park, I missed the bulk of yesterday’s game.  I got home at 4pm, just in time to realize that the game in my channel guide that was flagged with the red dot indicating it was being […]

Can the Bills Challenge the Patriots?

Tied up after five games, are the Bills good enough to give the Patriots a run for the division? Kyle:  Here is one from the old scary scenario department: at 4:15 Sunday the Patriots could be 0-2 in the AFC East. I’m too lazy to research when the last time this was the case, but I’m betting […]
