The ups and downs so far at Patriots training camp

First Day of Padded practice today Patriots training camp has officially gotten underway this week with the first padded practice on Saturday. The first two days seemed like a continuation of the OTA’s with no pads, and Brady had the day off on Friday. Danny Etling went from quarterback to receiver, and we got to see rookie quarterback Jarrett Stidham in action. He threw lots interceptions to start, but that’s to be expected. Sony Michel made his return to practice on Saturday, and Brady was also back on the field Saturday too. Brady Looking to connect with his new...

What will Tom Brady’s contract look like

Is Tom Brady getting a new deal soon? Tom Brady is entering his 20th season in the NFL, and in a Patriots uniform. His contract with the Patriots ends after the 2019 season and they are completely hush about it. They don’t want to talk about contracts because it can be a distraction. Brady is a very underpaid quarterback in the league and has always taken pay cuts so the Patriots can put money in other places. You will never see that from a player again. As he turns 42 in August, you have to assume the 45 range...

(Staff photo by Nicolaus Czarnecki/DigitalFirst Media/ Boston Herald) Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time, there’s no question about that.

Even the Krafts are an obvious guest on his podcast. It would be...

Patriots will not be visiting White House

Patriots won’t be visiting White House to Celebrate Sixth Super Bowl win USA Today The Patriots will not be visiting the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl victory. They have gone to the White House in the past to celebrate their Super Bowl wins, but not this time. It sounds like they don’t have the time to head there this year, between off-season activities and training camp starting soon it’s time to turn the page on last season. It’s also not getting any media attention that they aren’t going because the Patriots have been before with President Trump...

Patriots training camp starts in a month

Patriots training camp starts soon The Patriots have had a very different quiet off-season from a year ago. There was no drama this year and no big trades for them. You could say it was quite a boring offseason for the Patriots. Brady skipped OTA’s a second straight season, but that really doesn’t matter when they just won the Super Bowl. The biggest story-line was Rob Gronkowski retiring. Other than that it was quiet for the most part. Training camp starts on July 24th with the first public practice on July 25th. That does seem later than previous seasons....

Will Tom Brady get a contract extension?

Tom Brady’s contract ends after 2019 Tom Brady’s contract ends after the 2019 season. He has repeatedly stated that he wants to play until he’s 45 years old. He wouldn’t talk about his contract last week during minicamp, telling reporters that it was none of their business about his contract. There’s no way he will finish his career with another team, but he may be on a year to year basis with the Patriots after this season. This could be betting on the winner of the NFL future, World Series or College Football Chamionship before the season starts. He’s...

The Patriots back at minicamp

The Patriots take the field The Patriots started mandatory minicamp this week. Quarterback Tom Brady took the field once again as he turns 42 in August. Brady didn’t take part in OTA’s for the second straight season, but worked out with a few receivers and by himself to prepare for minicamp. Tom Brady looked sharp and hasn’t looked like he’s missed a step. Brady has already worked with N’Keal Harry and Julian Edelman at his home, but it’ll be interesting to see how they connect as offseason workouts go on. They have some work to do at the Tight...

The importance of Julian Edelman

Julian Edelman Is a Massive asset for the Patriots Julian Edelman’s impact on the Patriots is massive. The three-time Super Bowl Champion, and most recently Super Bowl MVP, has come up in big spots in big games. He’s also earned the trust of quarterback Tom Brady. Edelman brings that power and drive to the offense on the receiving side, and the chemistry between him and Brady is so good it’s the best in the league. He has a career 30 touchdowns and 5390 yards. His memorable catches are many, especially during the Super Bowl win against the Falcons. Edelman...

Does it matter Tom Brady misses OTA’s?

Tom Brady skipping offseason workouts for the second straight season Tom Brady for the second straight year is missing OTA’s. Last year he also missed to have more family time and prepare for the season his way. He went to TB12 last year and worked out in the practice facility. Another reason he skipped was the tension last off-season. His play dropped a little, but they still won the Super Bowl. If it was any other quarterback he would face criticism, but because of how much he’s won he can do whatever he wants. Brady has different Receiving and...

Bill Belichick will call defensive plays

Bill Belichick will be the defensive coordinator The Patriots are heading into the season without a Defensive Coordinator. Belichick called the defensive plays in 2010 before handing the play calling to Matt Patricia, who is now with the Lions. Belichick is used to calling plays on the defensive side of the ball, even before he became a head coach. Brian Flores called the defensive plays last year before taking the Miami Dolphins Head Coaching position after the Super Bowl. Belichick has experience calling the plays on the defensive side The Patriots will be fine having Belichick call the defensive...

Robert Kraft shouldn’t be suspended

Kraft shouldn’t be suspended, especially if the case is dismissed. The Patriots are coming off their sixth Super Bowl championship. Right after that, another Patriots scandal happened involving the Patriots owner Robert Kraft. I don’t need to go into the details. We all know what happened at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa. In my opinion, Kraft shouldn’t be suspended by the league because it’s not a football issue, and also not a domestic violence issue. The Patriots won’t lose draft picks, and I really don’t think he should be fined. He could’ve gone about it a different way,...

Patriots going into 2019 with no tight end?

The Patriots could enter 2019 with nobody at tight end Bill Belichick is the smartest coach in the league. After Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement there was speculation that the Patriots would draft a tight end during the draft, but they didn’t. There’s also a strong rumor that former tight end Benjamin Watson was going to come out of retirement and join his former team. The Patriots could go into the season with no tight end, and they haven’t had that happen in awhile. They’ve had much success at the position The Patriots have had a tight end since...

What to expect from the Patriots during the NFL Draft

What to expect from the Patriots in this year’s NFL Draft Always expect the unexpected when it comes to the Patriots and the NFL Draft which begins on Thursday. Everyone thought the Patriots were going to select Lamar Jackson in the first round last year and that didn’t happen. They didn’t select a quarterback until the seventh round in Danny Etling, who ended up on the practice squad. Realistically they probably won’t select a quarterback in the first two rounds with Brady around for another three years. Rumors suggest it’s a stronger quarterback draft next year so that might...

Rodney Harrison deserves to be inducted into the Patriots Hall OF Fame

Rodney Harrison would get my vote for Patriots Hall Of Fame Rodney Harrison was a huge asset to the Patriots defense. The two time Super Bowl Champion played 63 games for the Patriots, starting 62 of them. In the nine seasons with the Patriots, he recorded 12 interceptions, had 412 combination tackles, and 312 solo tackles. Harrison is one of those Patriots who came up big in big spots on the defensive side of the ball. When people think of those early 2000 Patriot teams on defense they think of Ty Law, Teddy Bruschi, Mike Vrabel, Ted Johnson, and...

Alex Guerrero thinks Brady can play until 50

The question remains can the greatest quarterback play until he’s 50? Brady is playing until 45. He’s confirmed that numerous times. But his trainer Alex Guerrero sees the quarterback playing until 50. Even if Brady was able to, there’s no way Gisele would allow him to keep playing past 45. He’s accomplished so much more than anyone, but the winning never gets old. He cemented his legacy with winning his fifth Super Bowl, and the sixth was just gravy. Just this week he posted to social media a picture of him taking confetti from the Super Bowl out of his helmet. He then wondered if he kept confetti from past Super Bowls. He keeps trolling the NFL, and it’s glorious.

Bill Belichick doesn’t seem to be retiring anytime soon

What a difference a year makes. This time last year there was speculation that Belichick was on his way out after Josh McDaniels came back as offensive coordinator. It seemed like Belichick was grooming him to be the next head coach sooner rather than later. However, things changed once the season started. The Patriots finished 11-5 and won the Super Bowl. Now a year later people have the total opposite mindset. Belichick is going nowhere. I even wrote that Belichick could be on his way out when they traded everyone in the off-season to let McDaniels have somewhat of a new team. Boy, was I wrong.

The best of Rob Gronkowski on and off the football field

Rob Gronkowski announces retirement from the NFL Via Sports Illustrated Rob Gronkowski was drafted 42nd overall in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. Later that summer, he signed a four-year contract worth $4.4 million. In 2010 Gronkowski played in all 16 games, catching 42 receptions for 546 yards and 10 touchdowns. From the beginning, people were talking about how much value Gronkowski could bring to a team. The 2011 season was his best one, having 90 receptions for 1,327 yards and a career-high 17 touchdowns.

Kyrie Irving Will Never Be The Leader Tom Brady Is

Tom Brady will always be an example of a real leader When Tom Brady was drafted he always wanted to be a leader. He wanted to help the Patriots be a great team for many years and play at a high level. Since 2001 he’s had the most success than any football player in history.

They did trade for defensive lineman Michael Bennett on Friday from the Eagles, but lost Trent Brown and Trey Flowers yesterday. On the first day, it was the Lions making moves, while the Patriots lost some defensive playmakers. However, because of their success, they can add and subtract all they want, because as long as Belichick and Brady are on the team they make the Super Bowl year after year. The Patriots seem...
