Is the AFC East Up for Grabs This Year?

Rick:  As of right now, I am not worried about the AFC East after only one game. Yes, it was a loss to the Dolphins, but Miami looks much improved in the trenches, it was a statement for them, and it is tough historically for New England to win at Miami. Rob Gronkowski got in […]

Has Tom Brady Lost a Step?

Derek: I feel like a troll for even posting this question.  Last year all the Tom Brady regression talk drove me crazy when his worsening stats were clearly due to a major lack of offensive weapons.  However, after Sunday’s game, I feel like this may actually be a fair question.  Looking back, I don’t think you […]

What Was the Biggest Factor in Sunday’s Loss?

Rick:  The biggest factor for me in the Patriots’ loss to the Dolphins last Sunday was the fact that Miami dominated the game in the trenches. Knowshon Moreno and Lamar Miller had a field day against the Patriots’ front seven and their inability to tackle. This allowed the ‘Fins to run for 191 yards in the […]

Out of Gas: Week 1 Risers and Fallers

Sunday should have been a great day.  It was the first Patriots game in seven months.  It was the first Patriots game for my youngest son.  It was the first time my oldest son had enough of an attention span to actually site and watch the game with me.  For the first 30 minutes in […]

What is Your Biggest Question Mark as the Patriots’ Season Kicks Off?

Rick: The biggest question mark for the 2014 New England Patriots is at the linebacker position. After the final cuts were made to get the roster to 53, the one glaring weakness is the lack of depth at the position. They cut James Anderson a couple of weeks ago and only have Darius Fleming and Chris […]

Let Ridley Run Free

Should Bill Belichick continue to keep Stevan Ridley on a short leash, or just accept the 3-4 fumbles he will give up in a year and turn him loose as the team’s most dominant rusher? Raj:  I think we all expect Ridley to fumble nowadays. And usually when he does, it costs the Patriots points. […]


What is Your Take on the Logan Mankins Trade?

Rick: The Logan Mankins trade was a move that i questioned at first, especially with the leadership that Mankins can bring to the locker room. But, at the same time, the Patriots drafted a lot of offensive lineman back in May and they are famous for getting rid of veterans a year earlier than usual, whether […]
