Round Table: Pure Genius

Where does the decision to give the ball to Denver and take the wind in overtime fall among Belichick's great coaching decisions? Jason: To be honest, I thought the decision was a no-brainer. That may sound absurd, but with every Manning pass fluttering into the wind like a drunken butterfly, how exactly were the Broncos going […]

NFL Pick ‘Em Week 13

As we head down the final stretch, Rick has a comfortable, but not insurmountable 4 game lead.  Raj and Jason are tied, and I'm, well, pretty much out of it completely at 10 games back.  Still, there is certainly room for some shake-ups as only one matchup was unanimously decided upon.  Maybe we'll all go […]


Foxboro Blog Top 12: Week 13

There were quite a few shake-ups at the top of the board this week with New England's miraculous comeback and the Chiefs hitting the skids.  Things could get crazy again this week with a #1 vs. #3, a #4 vs. #6, and a #9 vs #12 all on tap this week.  The Lions managed to […]

Opening Lines: Week 13

The Patriots opened as 7.5-point favorites as they visit the Houston Texans in Week 13. As I was watching the first half of the Denver game, a little voice inside of me said “well, our boys are getting their asses kicked, but at least you picked it right against the spread.” Then that little voice […]

Week 12 Risers and Fallers

There's nothing quite like waking up the morning after a miraculous win!  Everyone is buzzing about your team and you get the feeling that maybe, just maybe, they could be on their way to winning it all.  However, despite how good things feel right now, I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that Patriots […]

Insanity! – Patriots Defeat Broncos

I back in Week 6, after Tom Brady hit Kenbrell Thompkins in the end zone to defeat the New Orleans Saints, I wrote that you only get a game like this once every three or four seasons.   I was wrong. I will have a two year old crawling into my bed and telling me […]

Round Table: Decimated Defense

  Is the Patriots defense too decimated to make a Super Bowl run?   Rick: You can never count the Patriots out of the Super Bowl as long as Brady and Belichick are at the helm. However, watching that game Monday night and the Patriots' inability to get off the field on third down, this team didn't have […]

Preview: Patriots vs. Broncos

For the second time this season, Patriots' fans were talking about a controversial call (or non-call) that ended the game. That being said, the Patriots were still outplayed by the Carolina Panthers on Monday night 24-20. For the first time in 39 games, New England's defense could not force a turnover as Cam Newton threw the game […]

Round Table: Carolina Revisited

What do you feel was the biggest factor that lead to the Patriots losing on Monday Night? Jason: I won't place the entire blame on the refs, even if they were less useful than an abstinence brochure in a brothel on that last play. To me, it was an issue of poor defensive gameplanning. Cam's most […]

Round Table: Brady or Manning?

All homerism aside, who is the better quarterback, Brady or Manning? Rick: If this answer is solely based on 2013, I am going with Peyton Manning and its not even close. I know Manning has had the better weapons this season and Brady has done a great job with the lack of weapons he has had. But, […]


Foxboro Blog Top 12: Week 12

There are wild weeks, and then there was last week.  Five of our eleven teams shifted three or more spots as a result of this weekend's festivities.  The head-to-head battles shifted the balance of power, and there were some overwhelming and underwhelming performances from the rest of the crew to make this a truly volatile […]

NFL Pick ‘Em Week 12

And Rick's dominance of the board continues, as he managed to pick up a game this past week and now leads by three.  As for me, nine behind him, my goal is simply to now not finish last.  That's right, I'm eyeing you, Raj and your five-game lead on me!  If Indy, the Jets, and […]

Opening Lines: Week 12

The Patriots opened as 2.5-pont underdogs as they prepare to host the Denver Broncos in Week 12. There are a number of interesting angles worth considering here. I could talk about the fact that the Patriots haven’t been an underdog at home for the better part of a decade (a game in which they covered). […]

Make It Two: Week 11 Risers and Fallers

One ridiculous game-determining call against the Patriots this season was not enough.  No, the refs had to make it two by failing to call blatant pass interference against Rob Gronkowski on the game's final play.  Make no bones about it, regardless of the shill for the NFL that ESPN tried to trot out after the […]

Patriots Get Clawed by Panthers in Monday Night Thriller

Good morning, Patriots fans. Wow…I’m at a loss for words. I strongly feel the New England Patriots were robbed of a win tonight in North Carolina over the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers started the game with a quick 3 and out and the Patriots did the same thing. However, things got interesting on the Panthers’ […]
