Any Truth to the Brady Trade Talk?

There have been rumors swirling that the Patriots are looking to trade Brady before the last three years of his deal kick in as fully guaranteed.  Do you think there is any truth to these rumors? Rick:  I tend to usually believe the reports that come from Chris Mortensen at ESPN, but I do believe […]

An AFC East Look

Some time during the early second quarter this week, the Patriots will hits the one-third point of their season. (Yes, I actually used a calculator to figure that one out). By that time, many Pats fans will probably be a bit nervous as the perennial doormats who occupy the most abysmal stadium in sports, will […]


Are the Patriots Super Bowl Contenders Now?

 Last week we asked if the Patriots were legitimate Super Bowl contenders after their loss to the Chiefs.  Are they legitimate Super Bowl contenders now? Raj: Nope, not yet. Like I said last week, though they will always be Super Bowl contenders on paper, they haven’t shown enough on the field to be considered that. However, […]

New England Patriots v Buffalo Bills

Preview: Patriots @ Bills

Last Sunday, the New England Patriots looked a totally different team from the one that got blown out in Kansas City six weeks prior. The 3-2 Patriots came out of the gates with a 14-0 lead against the previously undefeated Cincinnati Bengals en route to a 43-17 win. While the crowd chanted for quarterback Tom […]


What’s Behind the Big Turn Around?

What do feel was the biggest factor in the turn around from Monday Night’s debacle to Sunday Night’s victory? Kyle:  There were two factors: the offensive line and the opponent’s defensive game plan. Right form the start, it was clear that they finally had the best configuration for the O-line in at the beginning. There […]


Order Restored: Week 5 Risers and Fallers

Having recently moved to New England, I was never subjected to the abject horror that is Boston sports-talk radio following a bad Patriots loss.  Don’t get me wrong.  Monday Night’s debacle in Kansas City was as ugly of a performance as there has been in the Brady/Belichick era, but I think the past thirteen seasons […]

Patriots Clean Out the Litter With SNF Blowout Win Over Bengals

Good evening, Patriots fans (or probably good morning, since most of you might be reading this Monday morning)! Well, it’s safe to say that the New England Patriots have turned their game around with this huge Sunday Night win over the former undefeated Cincinnati Bengals. After all the criticism and questions in the media (from […]


Are the Patriots Legitimate Super Bowl Contenders?

Kyle:  Talk to me on Monday about this one. If they play the best team in football close Sunday, or somehow, miraculously win, then they can be considered contenders. As they stand today, the Pats are NOT Super Bowl contenders as of today. My sense is there are too many leaks in this Titanic to fix on a […]

Week 5 NFL Pick ‘Em

And just like that, my lead is gone.  I knew better than to get attached to it.  Rick and Raj have come on strong to take over 1st and 2nd place respectively.   With four weeks in the books, everyone is starting to get a feel for the lay of the NFL land, as evidenced […]

Super Bowl XLVI

Is There a Rift in the Patriots’ Locker Room?

Is the Patriots’ poor play a result of bad execution, or do you think that there are behind the scenes locker room issues at the root of their problems? Kyle:  It think it’s poor execution coupled with poor coaching. It literally looked like they had no plan last Monday. Maybe they had a plan, but […]

Preview: Patriots vs. Bengals

Monday night had to feel like rock bottom for the New England Patriots (2-2) and their fans. It was thought that the offense would get better after all the inconsistency the first three games, but the Kansas City Chiefs not only dominated the Patriots in their 41-14 win at Arrowhead Stadium, but all aspects of […]
