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 […]

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 […]

Patriots tickets start from $70 for Bengals game

The New England Patriots got flat-out embarrassed a week ago. If they’re still anything like the old Patriots, the Cincinnati Bengals should be a bit worried heading into Week 5. There’s always that off chance that the Pats really are as bad as they look, but it’s also tough to bet against an angry Tom […]


Are the Patriots in Jeopardy of Losing the AFC East?

Rick:  I’m not worried about the Patriots in terms of winning the AFC East because of the lack of consistent quarterback play around the division. While the Bills’ defense looks very good early, the decision to bench E.J. Manuel was a little bit puzzling. While Kyle Orton helps that situation, I don’t think it vaults […]

A preview for Patriots tickets in October

The New England Patriots haven’t been quite themselves to get the 2014 season going, as Tom Brady and the offense have struggled en route to a sluggish 2-2 start. It’s fairly amazing that a normal 2-2 start is cause for alarm for this yearly playoff contender, but that’s what happens when you are led by […]

Could the Patriots Have a Quarterback Controversy?

Could there be a QB controversy heading New England’s way if the Patriots’ play doesn’t pick up? Raj:  Not really. Yes, Brady should blame himself with his performance. But you also have to remember that the offensive line is the main issue. I’m almost certain that Jimmy G, even if he starts off great, will […]

Don’t Panic: Week 4 Risers and Fallers

The bad losses have been few and far between in the Brady/Belichick era.  Still, there are those few games that can’t help but stick out. A 31-0 rout at the hands of the Buffalo Bills in Week 1 of the 2003 season. The time the Brady-less Pats were left scratching their heads when Miami broke out […]

Patriots Take an Arrow to the Head in Blowout Loss to Chiefs in KC

Good evening, Patriots fans (or most probably good morning since most of you might be reading this Tuesday morning). Well…I’m at a loss for words. What actually happened to the Patriots tonight in Kansas City? I for one did predict New England to get beaten by the Chiefs considering it was a road game and […]

Can the Patriots Win with Jimmy Garappolo if Brady Goes Down?

Kyle:  Garappolo is probably not ready to lead a team to the playoffs, but he is certainly ready to play in the NFL. He is surgically accurate (the quality I believe is most important for a QB- see Pennington, Chad and how he dissected the Pats D with precision passes). He can move and make […]

How Much is Brady to Blame for the Patriots’ Struggles?

Raj:  There is no doubt in my mind that some of the blame belongs to Tom Brady. He mentioned in his press conference yesterday that he’s just trying to be the best qb for the team. However, you can’t blame him too much if the offensive line is week and only one receiver (Julian Edelman) […]

Preview: Patriots @ Chiefs

Last Sunday, the New England Patriots (2-1) won a football game that a lot of people expected to be a blowout, but ended up being a game that the team barely hung on to win. In a 16-9 win over the Oakland Raiders, the Patriots’ defense was able to get a big Vince Wilfork interception […]
