New England Patriots Enter NFL Preseason Amidst Uncertainty

The preseason schedule for the defending Super Bowl Champions may not seem like such an important time on the NFL calendar, but for the New England Patriots, it may prove to be a little more valuable than other teams in this position. That mainly relates to Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo getting the majority of […]

A Fans First Training Camp Experience – @nhcowboy72

I want to share the story of my first Patriots training camp experience and the nightmare that unfolded on my 2nd day of camp. In early August for Patriots fans the season starts with Training camp. The first day is packed with excitement and the adrenaline is flying high. Fans start lining up as much […]

R-E-S-P-E-C-T: Examples of What NFL Could Be

Respect!  It is not something that can be demanded it is something that is earn because of a mutual understanding of the character of the individual to which the respect is given. Big Vince Wilfolk among others illuminated that fact by the honor they showed to Jr. Seau with his induction into the Pro Football […]


Logo or No-Logo Debate

“That’s how — that’s how the logo gauge is. It always is reading high. And the only way you could get those measurements where Walt says he saw just what the Patriots saw and what the Colts saw is with the non-logo gauge. And that’s why we made that finding. Now, maybe lightning could strike […]

Why I Dont Care About Deflategate

As another week of new “damning” information comes out, and the Deflategate scandal drags on I sit here in a very similar place I was over 6 months ago when it started. Except for the few weeks between the AFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl, my thought process is the same. Whatever comes of […]

Morning Thoughts 8/7/2015

The day got off to another typical day of talk about Tom Brady and the leaked emails that continue to come out. As a fan there nothing in them that really makes me go oh my god. I look at Brady as I look every other football player, as a human being. I don’t get […]

Jets Fans Asked For It

Alright Jets fans, you asked for it Last thursday, a plane sponsored by New York Jets fans flew over Gillette Stadium, dragging behind it a banner that read, “Cheaters Look Up”. This was probably the smartest, and yet absolute dumbest thing Jets fans have ever done. The smart part: It was clever and kind of […]


Yes, the long going Deflategate Scandal is still in the news and it has taken a new turn. A few weeks ago Tom Brady was denied his appeal by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and the NFL released what then was new information on the scandal. NFL fans were going crazy. Patriots fans in shock, still […]

New Post: My take on why Goodell hasn’t be fired.

Roger,Roger. Many have and still are clamoring for Roger Goodell to be fired. While the sentiment is a logical one in light of the 2014 saga of PR nightmare issues of which the pinnacle is the saga known as Deflategate. On the surface it would seem to be a no brainer to fire someone for […]

New Post – Anatomy Of A Pats Fan

Why would anyone want to cheer for and be loyal to a team that has been maligned as cheaters and liars? The truth is given a choice no one would but adversity shared and overcome breeds loyalty. Two lost Super Bowls in 1985 and 1991. The Bears and Packers we clearly the better team those […]

Roger Goodell: The Untamed Joke

194 days since this ridiculous war broke out, 10 hours of nearly useless talks and 35 days for the NFL commissioner to make a decision after Brady’s appeal hearing. And what did we get after 5 weeks of waiting, the same decision that we were left with before Brady wasted his time with Goodell. Really […]

Day 2 – New England Patriots Training Camp – Foxborough, MA

The defending Super Bowl Champions are back in camp, and although it is only the second day, there were several things that jumped out at me.  The team has not put on pads yet, so I will focus mainly on the offensive skill positions today.  We all know what the Brady’s, Edelman’s, and Gronkowski’s are […]

Tom Brady’s Future Still Undecided; Decision Time Reaches Seven-Month Mark

People have stopped asking for a verdict simply because it’s taking too long. The decision on Tom Brady’s appeal for his four-game suspension that was levied by commissioner Roger Goodell after allegations from the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship game for deflating footballs to illegal air pressure levels has not been made, as the […]

New England Patriots Middle Of The Pack In Terms Of NFL Season Travel

The New England Patriots organization has more on their collective minds right now than their travel for the upcoming 2015-16 season. Yesterday, Tom Brady appealed his four-game suspension that currently looms as a result of Deflate-gate. But in an article recently released by, the Patriots are 15th out of 32 NFL teams in terms […]

Rally Bus Makes Attending Patriots Games Easy From Anywhere in New England

The New England Patriots just got done winning their fourth Super Bowl in franchise history in the 2014-15 season. Tom Brady and co. looked like they may have been regressing a bit after sinking to a 2-2 start through the first four weeks of the season, but they stormed back and dismantled team after team […]

Season Opener Against Pittsburgh Is Most Expensive Patriots Ticket For 2015

Once the NFL schedule was released, the New England Patriots began mapping out their road to winning back-to-back Super Bowl championships. It may be early to be talking Super Bowls, but that’s the expectation this Patriots tenure with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick has created on an annual basis. As with many Super Bowl winning […]

Looking Forward: Rounds 1 & 2

There are a few things that have been dangling on my brain lately around the Pats that I’d like to wipe off before taking a blind, marginally thought out stab at the Patriots first two round selections: It is not a big deal that Tom Brady didn’t go to the White House, provided it wasn’t […]

Rounds 5,4,&3- Rolling Toward the First Round

by Kyle Gillis As I move to Rounds 5, 4, and 3, I think it is worth looking at previous 4th and 3rd round picks for the Pats in the BB era. I won’t talk about Round 5 picks- the Pats traded that went to Tampa Bay in a trade where I’m sure the Pats […]
