Throughout the season I’ll be reviewing the each Patriot’s game via the All-22 film. My goal is to provide some insightful analysis about what went right and what went wrong, without the emotion of a reactionary Sunday or Monday post-game article. I’ll be tracking players throughout the season on a +/- scale. A plus is […]
The Patriots run defense had their hands full in week 1 to the Knowshon Moreno, Lamar Miller tandem. Their task won’t be any easier in week 2 as they prepare to face soon-to-be Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson. Can they stop him?
No, Sunday was not a replay of last year’s game in Miami, but the Patriots collapsed again in the Florida heat and lost the season opener. Just like last year they had a lead at the half only to be outplayed in every aspect of the game in the second half. The only consolation you can […]
The wait is finally over. The longest off-season in professional sports is finished, and meaningful NFL football is finally upon us. The Patriots enter Miami as 5 point favorites on Sunday, and look to avenge last season’s 24-20 loss in Week 15. Here’s what we’ll be watching for Sunday at 1:00 PM. Defense, Defense, Defense […]

Starting tackles Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly had their seasons end in the first five weeks, and the injuries highlighted a tremendous lack of depth on the defensive front. VIEW: Other Patriots Previews The Pats were forced to insert inexperienced players into both tackle spots […]
Who is Armond Armstead? Currently he is one of the most discussed New England Patriots, and he never even played a snap for the team. Armstead was a defensive tackle for the University of Southern California Trojans from 2008-10. His numbers weren’t eye popping with 59 tackles in 17 games but he was declared medically […]
Naming 100 players in the NFL could be a daunting task for some, but most everyone would agree that ranking the 100 best players is a difficult task for anyone. Any list that tries to rank the best players in a sport will likely meet with contention and debate but at the same time people […]
It’s been three long months since Super Bowl XLVIII, but the 2014 NFL Draft is finally upon us, and will be held Thursday through Saturday at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

Ah, the perks of being a professional athlete! No, I’m not talking about the fame, or the fortune, or the ability to turn both into an annual vacation to Churchill Downs as a guest of some famous horse breeder/owner. Whether it’s NBA players walking into the arena (Exhibit A: Westbrook, Russell), baseball players being hazed […]
With the 2014 NFL Draft fast approaching, teams are finalizing their draft boards. Defensive tackle is an obvious need for the New England Patriots, and one name to keep an eye on is Notre Dame’s Louis Nix. Nix is an incredibly powerful player who has a body similar to a younger Vince Wilfork. He has […]
Many Patriots fans and pundits, including yours truly, believe that the Patriots should look to address the defensive line in the first round. The days of the Seymour, Wilfork, Warren trio seem like centuries ago, and the team could use some improved physicality and athleticism upfront. The Patriots defense is constantly adapting, having gone from […]
With draft day just under 25 days away, the actual NFL draft and not the Kevin Costner film, speculation about which player a team is going to take are heating up. With the Patriots being one of the most exciting teams to watch in the draft, whether it be trading high picks for multiple lower […]
Patriot fans can now rejoice with the news that veteran Vince Wilfork is not going anywhere!

A day after pulling off a deal to bring Revis Island to New England, the Patriots continued to add to their defense by signing former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner. In his three-year career Browner has been one of the top cornerbacks in the league, with 10 interceptions over that span. His addition, combined with […]
