With the Super Bowl rings now handed out to last year’s championship team, and OTA’s underway, eyes are turning to what kind of squad the Patriots will put on the field this fall. In New England, it seems there are always questions about what kind of team will be assembled. Bob Kraft and Bill Belichick […]
Current Personnel: Tom Brady, Jimmy Garoppolo Need level: Low Possible fits: None Had the Patriots not drafted Garoppolo in the second round of the 2014 draft, this position would have a higher need.
Coming into Foxboro, Chicago found themselves thoroughly outmatched, never quite able to get things going. By the time the Bears really started showing any signs of life, it was far too late, and in the end, they were on the wrong end of a 51-23 loss to New England. An offensive holding call on the […]
That was the ugliest game in the Tom Brady, Bill Belichick era of the New England Patriots.

This will be the first time we’ll get to see the Patriots starters in action, as most of the top players sat out the game in Washington last week. Providing an in-depth preview […]
Following a massive changeover in pass-catching personnel, Tom Brady put up relatively pedestrian numbers in 2013. Still, the Patriots posted the league’s third highest scoring offense in 2013. VIEW: Other Patriots Previews During the six and a half games that Rob Gronkowski was in the lineup, the Patriots offense looked much like the dynamic unit we’ve […]
The 2014 NFL Draft is now officially a week old. Football Analysts on ESPN have talked about who teams should draft and what teams’ needs are for the last four months prior to last week’s draft. Now with the draft finally over, Mel Kiper has given draft grades to each NFL team. The New England Patriots […]
