Patriots in general not impressed with the win today

Patriots Get The Win On Opening Day It felt like a fall day in Foxborough today when the Patriots hosted the Houston Texans. Tom Brady connected with Rob Gronkowski a lot today. Gronkowski really had himself a day catching seven passes for 123 yards and one touchdown to put the Patriots on the board first. After the game, however, Brady said “We’ve got to do a lot better than that, I don’t think we played anywhere near what our capabilities are. All of us probably look at the game and realize we could have done a lot of things...

Is Bill Belichick retiring sooner rather than later?

Bill Belichick’s Days Numbered Has Patriots Head Coach I wrote in April that Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was retiring after this season. This was after Josh McDaniels came back to be the offensive coordinator. In April, it was all about whether or not Rob Gronkowski or Tom Brady would be coming back for the 2018 season. After Gronkowski’s dirt bike press conference, there was a meeting with Belichick, Gronkowski, and his agent Drew Rosenhaus. Gronkowski would then post a video that he would be committed to the 2018 NFL season. With Josh McDaniels coming back, I said the...

Patriots announce their team captains

Patriots team captains announced The Patriots have announced their team captains. Tom Brady has made the list along with David Andrews, Matthew Slater, James White, Patrick Chung, and Devin McCourty. One name that did not make the list was Rob Gronkowski and people are asking why not Gronkowski? Because of the things he pulled in the offseason. Now you can say Brady did that too but not to the extreme Gronk did. Gronk held a press conference talking about dirt bikes while OTA’s were going on. Brady was training and enjoying time with his family. Also, Brady has earned...

Tom Brady Doesn’t Care What People Think

Tom Brady Silencing the Drama The final episode of Tom V Time has told us one thing. Tom Brady doesn’t care what anybody says. He’s playing until he’s 45 and that’s it. Brady also confirmed that he hasn’t been having fun playing football and that every team has issues. However, the drama around the team according to him has been blown out of proportion. Also, when he doesn’t win a Super Bowl, he gets frustrated just like anyone would. The greatest quarterback of all time is frustrated with the nonsense rumors surrounding the team. He put away any doubt...

Rob Gronkowski Will Make Jalen Ramsey Eat His Words

Jalen Ramsey Giving The Patriots A Reason To Destroy The Jaguars in Week 2 Jalen Ramsey isn’t afraid of talking about his opinion about other players around the NFL. The latest remark Ramsey made was about Gronk. He flat-out said Gronkowski isn’t very good. He elaborated and claimed that Tom Brady makes Gronkowski better than he is. Yes, Brady can make a superstar out of an average receiver or tight end, however, Gronkowski isn’t an average tight end. Gronkowski is the best tight end in the game when healthy. The five-time Pro Bowler has 76 touchdowns and 7,179 yards in his...

Rob Gronkowski will be a Patriot as long as Tom Brady is quarterback

Rob Gronkowski getting money added to his contract Rob Gronkowski’s new deal is a lot like Brady’s. It’s all performance based for the tight end. The Patriots added $4.3 million to his contract this season. It gives him $1 million per game and $3.3 million in incentives. The total amount of his deal is now $13.05 million according to Adam Schefter. Gronkowski has been seeking a new contract since the start of training camp last season. He was also contemplating retirement in the offseason. Once he found out Tom Brady was coming back and he got a talking too by...

People need to get over Alex Guerrero

The Alex Guerrero drama needs to stop The Alex Guerrero drama is getting old now. Alex Guerrero was on the team plane when the Patriots traveled to Carolina to take on the Panthers. Big deal Brady has his trainer on the plane let’s ask thirty questions about his trainer but none about the wide receiver problem. Brady had his weekly radio interview on WEEI this morning and hung up after repeated questions about Alex Guerrero. Brady didn’t want to get into it and instead would much rather talk about the actual football instead of the drama. Alex Guerrero was on...

Who Should the Patriots Target at Wide Receiver

Wide Receiver Options The Patriots lost another wide receiver over the weekend. Eric Decker announced his retirement after eight seasons in the NFL. It really was no shock as Decker was probably going to be cut anyway. Decker didn’t play with Brady on Friday night against the Panthers so that was the final straw. Decker was having an issue connecting with Tom Brady all training camp. As of right now the Patriots have Edelman, Hogan, Patterson, and Dorsett as the primary receivers. With Gronkowski rounding the corps out it appears as long as Brady remains healthy they should be...

Kenny Britt Released. What it Means for New England’s Receiving Corps

Kenny Britt released With the release of Kenny Britt the Patriot’s receiving corps has gotten even weaker. It was clear Britt wasn’t getting the Patriots offense. He even said on Sunday he was behind. Overall not a good sign when they are in week three of the preseason. With Edelman out for a month the only reliable receiver right now is Chris Hogan. That clearly isn’t good enough. The Patriot’s receiving corps is weak The Patriots signed Eric Decker but he’s having a hard time connecting with Brady. Friday’s game will be a test to see which receiver will...

Tom Brady Felt Rusty On Thursday Night

Tom Brady Felt Rusty In His First Preseason Game Tom Brady missed all offseason voluntary workouts but did attend minicamp. Brady also went to training camp a few days early. With Julian Edelman out the first four games of the season, the wide receiving group is struggling to connect with Brady. On Thursday Brady’s time on the field consisted of throwing passes to James White, Julian Edelman, and Chris Hogan. He did not throw a pass to Eric Decker or Cordarrelle Patterson. The connection between Brady and Decker has been especially troublesome, as he’s dropped a lot of passes during...

Who Will Make the Cut at Running Back

Which Running Backs Will Make The Team It’s no secret the New England Patriots have lots of running backs at the moment. Injuries have plagued the position early on. Newly drafted Sony Michel has a knee injury. According to Jeff Howe of the Athletic Michel had his knee drained earlier this month due to a tear in his meniscus. Running back Rex Burkhead is also dealing with a slight tear in his knee but according to Howe it’s a minor injury and nothing serious. James White seems to be Tom Brady’s go-to guy as we saw on Thursday night...

Where Was That Performance Six Months Ago from the Patriots?

Patriots-Eagles Super Bowl Rematch in the Preseason Last night was preseason game number two for the Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles. It was a Super Bowl rematch from six months ago, when New England’s defense was awful. However, last night the defense was ready to play. The Patriots opened better with the Eagles than last week when they played the Washington Redskins. Tom Brady started and looked sharp as ever. The 41-year-old quarterback connected with his trusted players on the field the first drive of the game. Brady hit Chris Hogan for the first touchdown of the game. James White also helped move...

The NFL Should Follow the Examples of Jalen Ramsey and the Patriots

Jalen Ramsey Makes Headlines Jalen Ramsey has been making headlines after a no-holes-barred interview with GQ, holding nothing back. He didn’t care what was coming out of his mouth. Ramsey isn’t sold on the Buffalo Bills pick Josh Allen. Ramsey said “I think [Buffalo Bills draft pick Josh] Allen is trash. I don’t care what nobody say. He’s trash. And it’s gonna show too. That’s a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I’m excited as hell. I hope he’s their starting quarterback. He played at Wyoming. Every time they played a big school—like, they...

Tom Brady And Bill Belichick Still Share The Same Goal

Tom Brady Is Frustrated With His Receivers Training camp for the Patriots has been a light workload thus far. This week, Bill Belichick turned up the volume a bit and the receivers were dropping like flies. Tom Brady finished this training camp 152 of 215 (70.7 percent) with three interceptions. In 2016, Brady was 89 of 270 (70 percent) with two interceptions. One key difference- Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman manned the first-team reps last year. Newly-acquired receiver Eric Decker has been having a difficult time connecting with Brady. TB12 said after Tuesday’s practice: “He’s got to use his skillset,...

A Book About Tom Brady Being Released

A new book is coming out soon on Tom Brady. It gives an inside scoop on what really happened during the deflate-gate saga. That whole drama about the deflation of the footballs in the 2015 AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts. Tom Brady would play in the Super Bowl two weeks after that and win his fourth ring. The following season he would serve a four-game suspension. That is when we would get a first-hand look at Jimmy Garoppolo. The book, “12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady’s Fight for Redemption” by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge says Brady offered...

Spotlighting The Patriots Issues At Wide Receiver

Patriots Lack Wide Receiver Depth The New England Patriots have a really weak wide receiver group heading into the season. With Julian Edelman out the first four games of the season, It will be up to Chris Hogan and a bunch of average receivers to step their game up. Danny Amendola had 659 yards last season and two touchdowns. That is more than the current receiving core today, excluding Julian Edelman. Phillip Dorsett had zero touchdowns and just 194 yards last season. Chris Hogan had five touchdowns and 439 yards. Cordarrelle Patterson had zero touchdowns and 309 yards. Riley McCarron was...

Belichick: Drafting The Next Quarterback Who Will Never Start For Him

Did Bill Belichick Draft The Next Quarterback For The Patriots? Just like Theo Epstein in baseball, Bill Belichick could’ve been the first coach ever to draft two quarterbacks to have Hall of Fame careers. Epstein built a team with the Red Sox and won the World Series in 2004, erasing an 86 year curse. He then went to Chicago and built a World Series team there, erasing a 108-year curse. Belichick drafted Brady in 2000 and has won five Super Bowls with him. Belichick then drafted Jimmy Garoppolo and saw the same attitude Brady had when he arrived in Foxborough: the...

Malcolm Butler Has No Bad Blood with Bill Belichick (@steveA1127)

People Need to Get over the Malcolm Butler Super Bowl Benching Via SI.comPeople still can’t get over why Malcolm Butler didn’t play in Super Bowl LII. Last week, Bill Belichick was asked about benching Malcolm Butler in the Super Bowl, but he wasn’t having any part of that question. Belichick is strictly focused on the 2018 NFL season. Whatever happened in the past is in the past. However, Malcolm Butler is one of the reasons they won Super Bowl XLIX. Without that historic interception by Butler to end the game, Brady wouldn’t have gotten his fourth Super Bowl ring. Last...
