Foxboro Blog Top 12: Week 11

Get ready for a crazy week in the Foxboro Blog Top 12!  There were some big losses that sent our top teams plummeting downward, as well as one particular matchup where the winner found themselves dropping a spot and the loser gained two ranks.  In other news, my hard stance on Brett Favre and the […]

Nothing Can Stop the Blob!

Ahhh, there are few things as good in life as humiliating the New York Jets.  Yes, every now and then the J-O-K-E-S, Jokes! Jokes! Jokes! will manage to get the better of New England as they did in Week 2, but by and large, the New England Patriots have been the ones getting the last […]

3rd and Long: Patriots vs. Jets

I’ve spent nine weeks plotting and scheming ways to make fun of Rex Ryan for this weekend’s matchup.  Little did I know that he’d do all the work for me.  Without further ado, Foxboro Blog provides an exclusive sneek peek into the Jets team meeting this past week.  This is footage that you simply won’t […]

Foxboro Blog Top 12: Week 10

This week was supposed to be the triumphant return of the Patriots to the top of the NFL rankings.  Heading into the fourth quarter of Sunday Night’s game, you would’ve been declared certifiably insane to not regard New England as the league’s #1 team.  Even though the Saints remained undefeated, their recent narrow-escapes with teams […]

The Aftermath: Patriots @ Colts

Today was supposed to be a power rankings day, but then I realized that I never truly analyzed Sunday’s game.  There were two posts on this site yesterday dissecting Bill Belichick’s play calling, but the other storylines remained uncovered.  There are so many additional items that have been glossed over and still need to be […]

Another Take on 4th and 2

Three Super Bowl Championships, to a franchise as moribund as the New England Patriots had been when Bill Belichick took over, carry with them a cache of good will. Which, when accompanied by a little more than two bucks, will get you a large coffee regular at Dunkin’ the morning after a tough loss against […]


Bill Belichick: Genius or Idiot?

“When the future’s architectured by a carvival of idiots on show, you’d better lie low” – Coldplay When you go for it on 4th and 2 from your own 28 yard line, up by six points, with 2:08 left in the game, you’d better be able to accept the flood of criticism that will come […]

3rd and Long: Patriots @ Colts Preview

As promised, we have a preview of this week’s Patriots game, which just happens to be the biggest game of the 2009 NFL Season thus far.  Yesterday we had a  little bit of fun with the Brady vs. Mannning debate, but now it’s time to get serious.  And seriously, after taking a look at the […]


The War of 1812

Perhaps the most instensely debated issue in football over the past decade is whether Tom Brady or Peyton Manning is the NFL’s premiere quarterback.  On Sunday night, the two QB’s may meet for the last time in the 00’s.  It could be the last chance for either of them to prove why they should be […]

The Road Ahead…

The season is half-way over and the New England Patriots stand 6-2.  It’s been a fairly turbulent ride – the opening night nail-biter, the Jets upset, two big wins against the black birds, a heart-breaking OT loss to Josh McDaniels’ Broncos, two thrashing – one in October snow, the other in London, and finally a […]


Game Recap: Patriots vs. Dolphins

Before we break down the Patriots’ performance, let’s give take a moment to congratulate Joey Porter on his incredibly insignificant performance.  Nothing like running your mouth non-stop leading up to a game and then posting a row of zeros in the stat column.

3rd and Long: Patriots vs. Dolphins Preview

As promised, I’ll be doing a game preview for each weeks match-up.  I’m calling this segment “3rd and Long”, because I plan to go over three hot topics/things to watch for in each preview.  It was also the first name that came to me during the approximately eight seconds I spent thinking about what I […]


If I Build It…

Welcome to Foxboro Blog, the official home of the New England Patriots on the Bloguin Network!  I’ve been covering the Patriots on my personal website, DeROK.Net since 2002.  During that time I’ve had the honor of chronicling two Super Bowl titles, a 21 game winning streak, a perfect regular season, and a host of other […]
