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 […]

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 […]

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) […]

Week 4 NFL Pick ‘Em

After a 1-6 start, Kyle rebounded in Week 2 with a 6-1 finish.  He went back to his old ways and finished 1-6 in Week 3.  Should I be afraid that all seven of my picks are the exact opposite of his?   In other news, Raj caught up to me and is now tied […]

Looking Beyond the O-Line

Other than the offensive line, what is the biggest area where the Patriots need to make improvements? Rick:  The biggest area that the Patriots need to address other than the offensive line is the wide receivers. Other than Julian Edelman, no other Patriot has stood out at that position. The one thing I haven’t liked […]

A Bad Week for the Commish

Unless you are an Amish hermit, you saw that Commissioner Goodell had a pretty lousy week last week. At his air clearing, “House cleaning” press conference, he looked like a man quite skilled at giving the answers he wanted to give regardless of the questions asked. Mostly, what he sounded like was someone whose sole […]

The ‘Kowski Bowl: Week 3 Risers and Fallers

While Sunday was far from a banner day for the New England Patriots, it was a shining moment for those of Polish heritage as all 25 points in the game were scored by people with the last name “Kowski”.   That’s right, Oakland’s Sebastian JaniKOWSKI notched three field goals, Rob GronKOWSKI caught the game’s only […]
