Has the Patriots Defense Been a Mirage?

It was a game to forget for the Patriots, as many of their road games have been this season. The Patriots struggled in all facets of the game and it showed with a 38-17 blowout. With the loss to the Saints, the Patriots now fall to 7-4 on the season and 1-4 on the road. […]

Week 12 Report Card: Saints Brees Past Patriots

Saints quarterback Drew Brees made sure the Patriots didn’t capitalize on their second opportunity to knock off an undefeated team this season.  The New Orleans gunslinger threw for 371 yards and five touchdowns en route to a 38-17 beat-down of the Patriots on Monday Night Football.  Brees and company sent the “Brady Bunch” limping back […]

PATS on the Back: Patriots vs. Saints, Week 12

Well if Monday night’s 38-17 butt-whooping taught Patriots fans anything, it’s that their team can no longer be considered amongst the elite teams in the NFL. No elite team gets beat in every facet of the game like New England got beat in New Orleans. The league’s elite is reserved now to a trio of […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 12

In one of my leagues, I have lost two straight weeks. Normally, I wouldn’t dwell on it, but in both losses, I have lost only because I made a last minute roster move. Every Sunday, I make a frantic re-arrangement of my roster before the first kickoff. Two weeks ago, if I had played WR […]

Saints Roll Over Patriots 38-17

The Patriots sure aren’t doing a good job at protecting their undefeated regular season streak. Behind five touchdowns from Drew Brees, the Saints obliterated the Patriots defense from the opening drive and scored their 11th consecutive win of the season, 38-17. After the Patriots took a 7-3 lead on a Laurence Maroney touchdown in the […]

Pats Ready For Saints On Monday Night

New England has seen the best this season. They have played more undefeated teams then any other team thus far. Once more, the Patriots will look to topple a perfect team and give them the first loss of the season. However, this is not your average squad. The New Orleans Saints are one of the […]

TGIF: What Has Become of Yahoo! Fantasy Football’s First Round?

Now, I am focusing on just one provider of fantasy football, so the rankings may differ from other leagues. Every season, for people who are not that familiar with the game of fantasy football, we tend to lean heavily on the rankings. Even if you are a seasoned veteran, you can’t help but be influenced […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 1

Oh it feels so good to be back. The start of the NFL season also means the start of the “Fantasy Football Report”. Once again we will be bringing you a recap of some of the best players from the previous week as well as those who did not live up to expectations. Are you […]

TGIF: Fun With Fantasy Football’s First Round

Let’s be honest for a moment. Trying to prep for a fantasy football draft is borderline useless. It is without question the most unpredictable of all the fantasy games (well, the major ones anyway…who cares about fantasy NASCAR?). Thanks to its small number of games and high risk of injury, attempting to project player stats […]

TGIF: Fantasy Football Draft, 2009

The regular season has only been over for a few days but, that doesn’t mean we can’t start thinking about next season. I pulled a similar stunt like this when I made a first round projection for the 2009 baseball season. So naturally, I am back again to do the same thing only this time, […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 17

The season has come to an end. Was it as good for you as it was for me? Hopefully a lot of you are celebrating fantasy championships and are currently rubbing it in the faces of co-workers and/or schoolmates. If you were lucky enough to nab DeAngelo Williams off of waivers then good for you. […]

TGIF: The Results of Football’s First Round

Months and months ago, the SoB football league had its draft. Football is the sport with the least amount of depth at each position so in order to get things off on the right foot, you need to have a solid foundation. That foundation is in Round 1. If your first round pick fails then […]

TGIF: SoB Football League Draft

Last Saturday, the Sports of Boston Football League had its draft. In addition to the writers of Sports of Boston, we also had our friends from Wicked Pissa Dude Radio and The Blue Workhorse. We also had loyal readers join us for the fun. It is a 12-team league with positions set up as such: […]

TGIF: Surely You Can’t Be Serious

This Saturday at 2:15pm, I will be part of my first fantasy football draft of 2008. I am hoping to rebound from my 10th place finish from last season and have been conducting very extensive research to assure I can achieve maximum potential on my draft day. The football season is won or lost in […]
