I’m here to discuss the New England Patriots stock value on three rising players and three falling players who need to step it up as we continue to roll through this 2018 season. After a slow, frustrating start to the year the Patriots are finally getting in a groove which is a DISASTER for the rest of the NFL. Brady looks like Brady, the defense/secondary is improving, and Edleman is back and causing havoc for opposing team defenses. Lets take a look at which three...

Patriots Player To Watch This Season: Phillip Dorsett

As the 2018 NFL season quickly sneaks its way upon us, there are many questions surrounding the 2018 New England Patriots and some glaring holes some see in our roster. Sure, the Patriots do play in a weak AFC East and will more than likely win the division and get a bye into the playoffs. But there is one group of guys that I think need to step it up the most. No, its not the defensive unit, even though last year they were more than suspect. This year it is the WR core who will need to step...

On The Defensive: Who is Brian Flores?

photo cred. – www.nbcsports.com Who is Brian Flores and where did he come from? Brian Flores grew up in the housing projects (Brownsville) in Brooklyn, NY. Brownsville is one of, if not, the toughest areas to grow up in around the country, excluding Chicago. Growing up, Flores and his siblings saw things that kids his age should never have to witness. If you ask Flores it made him into the fearless man/leader he is today. Flores began playing football around the 8th grade and quickly turned himself into quite the defensive back/running back. Not only was Flores a heck...

Q&A with Patriots Offensive Lineman LaAdrian Waddle

photo cred- www.zimbio.com   This past week I had the opportunity to connect with New England Patriots offensive lineman LaAdrian Waddle via Facebook. LaAdrian is a cool dude and simply posted the question, “what is ok to mix with your eggs?”, in which I put my two cents into his discussion. We had a back and forth that eventually turned into a quick Q&A. Shout out to LaAdrian for taking the time to answer my questions, and to Boston Sports Extra for giving me the opportunity to write for them and reach out to players and be able to speak with...

Q&A with Lou Merloni

2018 Boston Red Sox Q&A with Lou Merloni (@LouMerloni) I’d like to give a HUGE shout out and thank you to the man himself, Lou Merloni. Lou and I follow one another on Twitter and when I asked him if he would be interested in a quick Q&A for our site, he could have easily ignored me, said no, or said he is too busy. Instead, Lou answered right away and took time out of his day between shows and broadcasts to do me a solid. I have been a Sox fan my entire life and always thought it...

Should Alex Guerrero Be Allowed to Work with the Patriots?

Alex Guerrero: Health Guru / Locker Room Menace This past season for the New England Patriots was filled with more drama involving its own clubhouse than I can ever remember in recent history. The drama started to unfold when Seth Wickersham cited a rift between Kraft, Belichick, and Tom Brady. The drama stemmed back to one man: Alex Guerrero. For those not familiar with Mr. Guerrero, he is Tom Brady’s trainer, health guru, close personal friend, and now ENEMY of Bill Belichick. The Wickersham report basically stated that Belichick was unhappy with Guerrero’s presence in the clubhouse and on...

Brad Stevens of your Boston Celtics has become one of those coaches. Let’s take a look at some reason why Coach Stevens is more than deserving of NBA Coach of the Year: Making The Case Since Brad Stevens has taken over this...

The Rise and Fall of Colin Kaepernick

The rise and fall of Colin Kaepernick: From underdog to unsigned Colin Kaepernick, where do I begin? Coming out of Nevada and being drafted as a relatively unknown QB, I was pulling for you as an underdog. A small fish in a big pond, if you will. Now you’re out of the league and, in a way, it is your own fault. It seems like in today’s day and age we turned the clock back 50-60 years, and let racism show its ugly head. With the recent incidents in the news involving police and the treatment of the African-American...

Why Celtics Nation Should Trade for Kyrie

With reports running wild out of Cleveland about the possibility of a Kyrie trade,  Celtics fans need to ask themselves just one question. “Do we have a chance?” Conflicting reports continue.  The C’s and Cavs have stayed in touch about the possibility of a deal between the two clubs involving Kyrie and multiple Celtics assets. If these reports pan out and a trade does happen, then this would be HUGE for the Celtics now, and going forward in the future. Consider some of the reasons why I feel like the trade would make the Celtics a better team in...

OPEN LETTER TO THE G.O.A.T – TB12

  Dear Tommy (or should I call you GOAT), In the year 2000 at the NFL Draft a certain name would be called out loud that would become embedded into the brains of Patriot fans and NFL fans around the world. “With the 199th pick in the NFL draft, the New England Patriots select, Tom Brady, Quarterback from the University of Michigan.”  No one knew that this announcement would change the NFL and is storied history forever. Bledsoe down, Brady up I will never forget the year 2001.   In the seventh grade, I watched the Patriots play the...

WHERE IN THE WORLD IS XANDER BOGAERTS ?!

Twitter: @B_Murph1021 Where is the X-Man? As our Red Sox start to gain momentum and head into the last leg of the season with a full head of steam we have one important thing missing.   And that thing isn’t A THING at all — our starting short stop, Xander Bogaerts. To say that Xander is struggling recently would be a complete understatement, as one of our most talented players has COMPLETELY fallen off the face of the earth. Let’s take a look at what Xander hasn’t done recently and why he needs to take a turn for the...
