Bill Belichick, Patriots No Longer the Smartest Guys in the Room

Listen, you can’t screw up a season as bad as the Patriots have screwed this one up so far and we are in week 2 and they haven’t lost. Before the dust settles, this may be on par with the Red Sox decision to hire Bobby Valentine after their infamous collapse in 2011. This was […]
