Notes and Observations Week 6: Patriots Claim First Place, Beat Bills 37-22

Every year the “experts” talk about how the Bills are right putting it together and are going to challenge the Patriots for the division. They create a little buzz with a few early wins and Chris Berman constantly reminds us that “nobody circles the wagon like the Buffalo Bills. No matter all the hype they’re still […]

Report: Aaron Dobson Benched for “Mouthing Off”

Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe reported Wednesday night that second year receiver Aaron Dobson had been deactivated against Oakland and Kansas City because he “mouthed off” to offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. This is yet another chapter in what was a frustrating September for the Patriots, especially on offense. Dobson is a player who […]

Why Aaron Dobson Could Hold the Key to the Patriots Offense

Since trading Randy Moss early in the 2010, the one question that has persisted for the Patriots offense is the lack of a deep threat wide receiver. When New England drafted Aaron Dobson in 2013, they took a player they believed would solve that issue. He was inconsistent in a rookie campaign that saw him […]

Video: Dobson Debuts with Can’t-Miss TD Catch from Garoppolo

Who says preseason games are meaningless? Sure, the only snap that Tom Brady played in the New England Patriots’ final preseason game was as the holder on an extra point attempt, and typical starters Rob Gronkowski, Jerod Mayo, Dont’a Hightower, and Sebastian Vollmer, among others, didn’t even dress for Thursday night’s “game.” Nonetheless, last night’s game was […]

Who Should the Patriots Draft With Their First Pick?

Offense or defense? Trade up or stay put? Just two of the many questions surrounding what the New England Patriots will do with this year’s first round draft pick (29th overall).

Notes and Observations, AFC Championship: Patriots Come Up Short Against Broncos

For the second consecutive season the Patriots lost in the AFC Championship game. A team that was once so successful in the postseason, has now suffered three consecutive disappointing losses in a row. The one major thing in common in all three of those games is the poor play of the offense. The stat line […]

No Rob Gronkowski, No Problem for Patriots Moving Forward

So far in the 2013 season, Rob Gronkowski has missed seven games and he has played in seven games. The Patriots record with Gronkowski is 5-2 and without him is 5-2. The difference this season is the addition of rookies Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins. The Patriots are a different team with Gronkowski than they […]

Notes and Observations, Week 15: Patriots Let One Slip Away Against Dolphins

With the Broncos loss on Thursday night, the Patriots had a chance to claim the number one seed in the AFC. All they had to do was win the rest of their games. How did they respond? They let a very winnable game slip away to a division rival who is making a late season […]

Are the Patriots Still Legitimate Super Bowl Contenders Without TE Rob Gronkowski?

The New England Patriots may have won their game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, but they suffered a devastating injury to one of the most important players on the team. Star tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered a season-ending injury and was placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee. […]

The Case for Kenbrell Thompkins

The Patriots offense is still trying to find its identity and Kenbrell Thompkins needs to be a part of it. Because he is the type of selfless player that the team cultivates, Thompkins himself would never say this but his play on the field does. Thompkins, an undrafted rookie out of the University of Cincinnati, […]

Week 9 Notes and Observations: Patriots Offense Finally Looks Sharp in 55-31 Win Over Steelers

The first half of this season has been an amazing coaching job by Bill Belichick and his staff.

This season itself has been […]

Week 8 Notes and Observations: Patriots Score 24 Unanswered Points to Beat Dolphins 27-17

It’s hard to justify a must win game in October, but this game was just that.

The Patriots needed this one to keep distance in the division as the Jets […]
