Notes and Observations, Super Bowl XLIX: Patriots are Champions Again!

Super Bowl XLIX lived up to the hype and then some. Sunday night saw the match-up of the two best teams in the NFL go down to the wire to decide the champion. Every snap counted and every second felt like an eternity, which is exactly how the Super Bowl is supposed to be. As […]

Rob Gronkowski vs Seattle Secondary is Clash of Titans

One of the most intriguing storylines leading into Super Bowl XLIX is how the Seahawks will defend elite Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. Gronkowski has been one of the league’s best offensive players over the past five seasons but he has yet to face a defense as formidable as Seattle’s. In the AFC Championship game, […]

Forget Deflate-Gate: Let’s Look Back to the Actual AFC Championship Game…

The past two seasons we have grown accustomed to watching the Patriots blowout their divisional round opponent only to lose in the AFC Championship game. This year they changed things up for the better. Last week we all sat on the edge of our seats while the Patriots erased two 14-point deficits on route to […]

So This is Awkward…Deflategate Continues as NFL Finds 11 of 12 Patriot Footballs Underinflated

Well, this is awkward. Quarterback Tom Brady laughed it off as “ridiculous.” Coach Bill Belichick all but ignored it (on to Seattle!). Wide receiver Julian Edelman said they didn’t feel any different than usual. Vince Wilfork took the bemused approach and claimed ignorance; after all, he just tackles people. Patriots fans scoffed and all but […]

Notes and Observations Divisional Playoffs: Patriots Advance to Fourth Straight AFC Championship, Beat Ravens 35-31

What an incredible game we all witnessed Saturday night. From start to finish, as a fan, you didn’t have a second to catch your breath. Every snap mattered and in the end it was a couple key plays that turned the tide of the game. The Ravens have been one of the few teams that […]

Rob Gronkowski Could Prove a Nightmare for Ravens

Several times this season I have written about the impact that a healthy Rob Gronkowski can make in a game. It is no secret that he is the league’s most dominant tight end and one of the premier offensive weapons in football. He is virtually uncoverable and will provide the Patriots with a distinct advantage […]

Who the Patriots Should be Rooting for Wild Card Weekend

This weekend will present two wild card playoff games in the AFC. The Patriots will be awaiting their outcomes as the results will determine who they play in the divisional round. The third-seeded Steelers will play the sixth-seeded Ravens and the fourth-seeded Colts will host the fifth-seeded Bengals in win or go home Wild Card […]

Notes and Observations Week 17: Bills Beat a Disinterested Patriots Team 17-9

It is certainly refreshing to have a team so successful that the last game of the season is completely meaningless. Yes, it wasn’t the best 60-minutes of Patriots football, but it didn’t have to be. All that mattered was getting out of that game without any injuries and giving some players who normally don’t see […]

Notes and Observations Week 16: Patriots Escape from New York with 17-16 Win; Clinch First Round Bye.

Woof. Well you know what they say, a win is a win and Sunday’s win over the Jets clinched a first round bye for the Patriots for the fifth consecutive year. A nice fun fact is the Patriots are the first team in NFL history to clinch a first round bye for five consecutive seasons. […]

Notes and Observations Week 15: Patriots Blow Out Dolphins 41-13; Clinch AFC East

It never gets old winning the AFC East. At the start of every year, we have to listen to all the “experts” talk about how the Bills, Dolphins, and Jets are all primed to challenge the Patriots for the division crown. Granted the Bills actually have an impressive defense, and if they only had a […]

How the Patriots Can Attack the Chargers

The Patriots and Chargers are both coming off tough road games that went down to the wire. The Chargers went in to Baltimore and beat the Ravens 34-33 in the final minutes while New England lost a close matchup to the Green Bay Packers, 26-21. The Patriots are still the AFC’s top seed at 9-3 […]

Antonio Gates has High Praise for Gronk

One interesting aspect of Sunday’s game between the Patriots and the Chargers is the two premier tight ends that will be featured. San Diego boasts perennial star Antonio Gates while New England fashions superstar Rob Gronkowski. When two top-tier players at the same position play in the same game, it is always interesting to hear […]

Notes and Observations Week 13: Packers Hold on to Beat Patriots 26-21

The heavyweight showdown of the year delivered as advertised on Sunday. While the Patriots did come up on the short end of the five-point stick, they kept a rolling Packers offense limited to just 26 points. Unfortunately the offense missed far too many opportunities while the Packers took advantage of the chances they were granted. […]
