Notes and Observations, Week 1: Déjà Vu In Miami as Patriots Fall to Dolphins 33-20

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 […]

Ray Rice Suspended Indefinitely After TMZ Publicizes Domestic Abuse Video

Wes Welker was suspended four games for supposedly doing Molly at the Kentucky Derby. Josh Gordon was suspended for the entire season for testing positive for marijuana for the second time (though it’s probably safe to assume it wasn’t his second time smoking pot). Ray Rice was suspended two games for a domestic abuse incident […]

Former Patriot WR Welker Suspended 4 Games for Doing Molly?

When advertisements asked me “Are you ready for some football?”, I thought I could answer with an unequivocal and resounding “YES!” Turns out I was wrong, because I was not mentally prepared for the NFL news that broke on Tuesday.

Edelman to Test Free Agency After No Deal With Patriots

For those Patriots fans who subscribe to the “We need more weapons on offense” theory, now is the time you should stop reading. It appears as if quarterback Tom Brady is at risk of losing his top pass target for the second year in a row. One year after Wes Welker defected to the Denver […]

Game of Tags: Patriots Decline to Franchise Talib, Edelman

Even though there are 12 Patriots scheduled to be unrestricted free agents, only two were ever really serious considerations for the franchise tag. Julian Edelman and Aqib Talib were all the buzz after New England’s season ended in January. Both were key to the Patriots’ success, yet both were still deemed unworthy of the tag.

Belichick Hates Welker Because Shaughnessy is Off the Patriots Bandwagon

Bill Belichick obviously hates Wes Welker. More like, Dan Shaughnessy obviously will write anything that is contrarian and will get him readers. Shaughnessy has flipped sides on this year’s Patriots team enough times that it’s hard to count. One minute he’s lauding them for miraculous comebacks and the next he’s lambasting them for poor personnel […]

Notes and Observations, AFC Championship: Patriots Come Up Short Against Broncos

For the second consecutive season the Patriots lost in the AFC Championship game. A team that was once so successful in the postseason, has now suffered three consecutive disappointing losses in a row.

After galloping over the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs to the tune of 166 yards rushing and four rushing touchdowns, LeGarrette Blount finds himself on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated issue. This comes with mixed feelings for Patriots fans. On one hand, it elicits that warm, fuzzy feeling […]

Patriots Overachieved Throughout 2013 Season

As the New England Patriots have wrapped up the regular season at 12-4 and are preparing for the second round of the playoffs, it’s tough to challenge the idea that 2013-2014 was a season of over-achievement. Sure, the Patriots have been enjoying 10+ win seasons since 2003 and have had first round byes in the […]

Notes and Observations Week 17: Patriots Beat Bills; Clinch #2 Seed in the AFC

After everything that has happened to the Patriots this season, it is absolutely incredible they are the number two seed in the AFC. The offseason was highlighted by Tom Brady’s favorite receivers from the year before, but in the worst possible scenarios. Wes Welker went to Denver to catch pass from Brady’s rival Peyton Manning. […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 15

The Broncos contingent keeps rising up the Big Board save for the concussed Wes Welker.  Julian Edelman takes up a spot on the Board and should be in line for a bunch of targets down the stretch.  Calvin Johnson maintains his stronghold on the No. 1 spot as the premier wideout in football.  LeSean McCoy […]

Winning the Wire and the Playoffs: Week 15 Fantasy Sleepers

Widespread inclement weather and serious injuries to Rob Gronkowski and Wes Welker were big fantasy storylines in Week 14.  Gronkowski will be fortunate to play in Week 1 of 2014, while Welker suffered his second concussion of the year and looks unlikely to play against San Diego on Thursday night.  If you’re still alive, congratulations […]

Notes and Observations Week 14: Patriots Mount Another Improbable Comeback; Beat Browns 27-26

Sunday’s game was one of the more bittersweet experiences for fans of the Patriots. Down 26-14 with 2:39 left in the game, all hope was almost lost, fans made their way to the exits, and Tom Brady did what Tom Brady has done his whole career. With some help of a pass interference call, and […]
