The Hidden Damages of Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin

The Miami Dolphins just went changed their colors from orange and teal to perhaps the only certifiably uglier color combination of black and white. In lieu of guard Richie Incognito’s voicemail left for Jonathan Martin, the Dolphins have suspended Incognito indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team; just days after Martin left the team for […]

2013 Patriots Midseason Report: No Longer Elite?

We are officially midway through the Patriots’ 2013 season and, for the first time in what feels like a decade, the Patriots status as an elite team feels questionable at best and nonexistent at worse. They are 6-2, and look to have the edge on another AFC East title, but not much besides that seems […]

2013 NFL Preseason: Ready for Some Action?

Now that summer is coming to an end, it’s time to get ready for some NFL betting action. The NFL preseason kicks off this Sunday, August 4th when the Miami Dolphins and the Dallas Cowboys meet in the annual Hall of Fame Game, which is set to follow the induction ceremonies held on the previous […]

More Surgery Scheduled for Gronk

The New England Patriots started their OTA’s recently, but a big presence was missing for these practices. Rob Gronkowski, who recently had a fourth forearm surgery on May 21, was handed some more bad news recently, which has Patriots fans worried. Gronk will have to undergo another surgery in mid to late June, only this […]

Bill Belichick No Longer NFL’s Highest Paid Coach

Sometimes you don’t realize how valuable something is until it’s gone, or, in the New Orleans Saints’ case, suspended for an entire season. Sean Payton did not coach a game in 2012, as he was serving a year-long suspension for his role in the Saints’ locker room bounty scandal. Without Payton, the Saints fell significantly […]

Ray Lewis And The Patriot Way

And so it begins. In a development that surprised nobody, the Baltimore Ravens kicked off the trash talk before the Patriots had even finished defeating the Houston Texans on Sunday. Ravens Linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo sent out several tweets ripping the Patriots’ offense, calling them “a gimmick” and saying that their style of play was akin […]

A Few Ways to Fix Major League Baseball

Are you someone that watches baseball?  Have you ever been to a game at Fenway, or another ballpark?  Have you ever been REALLY bored while doing these things?  If you just said “Yes,” you are not alone. With the success of the NFL and its ability to change its rules from year to year, which in turn […]

Photo: Bill Belichick Throws Red Challenge Flag like a Javelin vs. Bills

The Patriots barely escaped with a 37-31 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. During the game, coach Bill Belichick felt he needed to challenge a play. Belichick felt so strongly about the challenge that he threw the challenge flag several yards into the field of play. There’s nothing like an animated .gif to capture […]

A Tough Road to Home-Field: Patriots Will Have to Work to Secure a Bye

Every game matters. That is what makes the NFL so great. This is why the Patriots are really going to have to work to overcome that pathetic home loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It was probably the worst home loss in the Tom Brady era. Thank Josh McDaniels and Bill Belchick for benching Wes Welker, […]

NFL Replacement Officials Wear Out Welcome During Seahawks-Packers on MNF

Everyone is talking about how poorly the replacement officials are doing, and I can’t say I’m surprised at how bad the first three weeks of the season have turned out. No one could have thought these refs, who are mostly from high school, junior college, or even arena football, could handle the speed and pressure […]

Patriots 2012 Roster Preview: Will the Kids be Alright?

Michael Felger began his show on Tuesday with a very interesting question. I am paraphrasing, but the question was do Patriot fans feel the same way about the team’s chances this year as they did at the beginning of training camp? Felger and Massarotti spent a lot of time discussing a Monday column by the […]

Let’s Go: Patriots Open Up Preseason with 7-6 Victory over New Orleans

After months of updates, signings, and analysis, the New England opened up the 2012 campaign last night, squeaking past the New Orleans Saints 7-6 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. The game was sloppily played, marred by turnovers, and inundated with mistakes.  There were a total of four turnovers (two from each squad), and 15 […]

Cris Carter Adds Fuel to the Saints’ Bountygate Fire

In an interview with ESPN Radio’s “Hill & Schlereth,” Cris Carter admitted to placing bounties on opposing players. “I’m guilty of it,” Carter said.  “…I put a bounty on guys before. I put bounties on guys. And the guys tried to take me out, a guy tried to take a cheap shot on me, I […]
