The Curious Case of Jimmy Garoppolo

On July 15th Tom Brady announced to the world he would no longer seek legal action in the infamous “Deflategate” scandal, thus ending the longest, and quite possibly the most ridiculous sports story ever, that was endlessly talked about for the better part of a year and a half. At that moment, it became clear Brady […]

What Makes Bill Belichick So Good?

Bill Belichick is widely knows as one of the greatest head coaches in NFL history.  Belichick first broke into the NFL when he was hired by the Baltimore Colts, where he was payed 25$ a week serving sort of like a gopher for head coach Ted Marchibroda.  Belichick then was hired by the Cleveland Browns […]

Brady Writes Letter to Patriots Fans

The Patriots season did not end in sunny Santa Clara California, hoisting the Lombardi Trophy as New England fans had hoped, instead it ended in defeat and disappointment in Denver. Blame the O-Line, blame the kicker, blame the play calling from McDaniels, even blame Tom Brady and the ducks he threw up for grabs resulting […]

Notes and Observations Week 13: Patriots Embarrass Themselves at Home, Lose to Eagles 35-28

Losing twice in a row is not something we are accustomed to as fans of the New England Patriots. Since Bill Belichick has been the coach of the team they’ve only lost two games in a row 11 times, including Sunday’s game. It’s a luxury most teams in the NFL have not been afforded. When […]

Undefeated Mirage Gives Way to Reality of Flawed Patriots Team in OT Loss to Broncos

It was all a mirage. All the talk about another undefeated season for the New England Patriots was nothing more than an illusion propped up by a zero in the loss column, at least until Brock Osweiler and the Denver Broncos officially put an end to what was all but an impossibility anyway with a […]

Notes and Observations, Week 9: Patriots Beat Redskins 27-10 to go 8-0 for 2nd Time in Team History

Last week I talked about how spoiled we are in New England basically being able to pencil the Patriots into the AFC Championship every year. This week was another prime example of just how good we have it here. The Patriots handled the Redskins all game and the win was never in doubt. Tom Brady […]

Notes and Observations Week 5: Patriots Defense Solid After the Bye Week; Beat Dallas 30-6

Just about every other team in the league would have taken yesterday’s game for what it was at face value. A 30-6 victory on the road after a bye week. In New England, the team and the fans could only see the things that they could improve on next week. The defense played exactly how […]

Notes and Observations Week 3: Patriots Stomp Out the Jaguars 51-17 As They Head Into the Bye Week

For most of the other 31 teams in the league this could easily have been a trap game. The Patriots have been rolling offensively to start the year and the Jaguars just are not on the same level as New England. With the bye week following this game it could have been easy for the Patriots […]

Patriots Will Have Their Hands Full With T.J. Yeldon

On Sunday when the Patriots and Jaguars face off at Gillette Stadium, one of the keys to success for New England will be stopping Jaguars rookie running back T.J. Yeldon.

Notes and Observations Week 2: Patriots Remind Everyone Who Runs the AFC East; Defeat Bills 40-32

Just like every year the hype starts up around the other teams in the AFC East with all the geniuses at ESPN claiming this is the year the Patriots get dethroned. With Rex Ryan taking over as head coach of the Buffalo Bills the “experts” laid on the hype thick and often. Rex did what […]

The Patriots are playing the Bills this Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo. Its a heated AFC East divisional game however since the start of the Brady and Belichick run in New England it hasn’t been much of a rivalry. Tom Brady is 23-3 against the Buffalo Bills in his career. But, to be […]
