Johnny Football In Foxborough?

Johnny Manziel in a Patriots Uniform Via For The Win – USA Today Johnny Manziel, who completely destroyed his NFL chances once before, is attempting to make a comeback in the league. Manziel worked out for 13 NFL teams yesterday, one of those teams being the New England Patriots. When he first got drafted by Cleveland, Manziel made that stupid money sign like he’s getting paid millions. He didn’t care if the Browns were terrible. Then the reality check stepped in fast and he went on a downhill spiral. The Patriots are trying to get their locker room back. They re-signed...

Grading the Patriots’ Offseason so Far

It’s for certain that the Patriots are cleaning house at One Patriot Place. The Patriots have cut ties with Danny Amendola, Dion Lewis, Nate Solder, and Malcolm Butler. It’s fun to speculate at how this offseason is different from previous years. Last year they made a lot more moves, and really who worked out? Brandin Cooks wasn’t great, Kony Ealy was a bust and so was Dwyane Allen. Right now the Patriots have less talent now than they did in the Super Bowl. All they have right now are players from the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns. Amendola Looks...

Danny Amendola is a Miami Dolphin

Danny Amendola is now a Miami Dolphin. All the loyalty to the Patriots was just all talk and at the end the NFL is a business. Amendola will sign a two year deal worth $8.25 million and $12 million with incentives. Danny Amendola really played great in the playoffs. He got the nickname Danny ‘Playoff’ Amendola because of his clutch performance when the games mattered the most. The Dolphins just traded Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns to make up for it. Why not get Amendola? Amendola played in 69 of 80 regular season games with the Patriots. In...

Richard Sherman or Aqib Talib?

The Tales of the Cornerbacks The Patriots will head into the 2018 offseason with defensive problems, like we clearly saw in the Super Bowl. The Patriots have a clear problem on defense and they really need a top corner to fill the hole they have. With Malcolm Butler on his way out the door, we now can see that the hole at the corner back position is huge. There are two names that are free agents that could be a perfect fit to fill that position. Aqib Talib and Richard Sherman. One of those two guys could be just...

Comparing J.D. Martinez to Manny Ramirez

Is Martinez the New Manny? J.D. Martinez might have been the power hitter Boston’s been looking for. Alex Cora is already comparing him to Manny Ramirez. He’s not talking about Manny’s attitude, he’s talking about how Martinez swings the bat. Don’t you think it’s a little soon to be comparing Martinez to Manny? The player hasn’t even swung a bat at Fenway Park, and we’re already talking about him being one of the greatest to ever put on the Red Sox uniform. Ortiz Helps with the Younger Players I’m sure David Ortiz being at spring training helps, but that’s...

Nobody Likes the Atmosphere at One Patriot Place

Gronkowski on His Way Out? Rob Gronkowski was a huge asset in the second half of the Super Bowl. But rumors swirled when after the Super Bowl that Gronk was going to evaluate his future. Rob Gronkowski is rumored to be interested in the WWE, XFL, and movies. Tom E. Curran from NBC Sports Boston said last night that Gronkowski was unhappy playing for the Patriots in 2017. Gronkowski almost retired at the start of Training Camp last season. He trained with Alex Guerrero, Brady’s trainer who was removed from the locker room and the sidelines. Tom Brady was the...

Positive Vibes During Spring Training in Fort Myers

Spring Training Has Started The Boston Red Sox begin Spring Training games this week. It already seems like the vibe in Spring Training is different from the last few years. The Red Sox just singed J.D. Martinez to a five year, $110 million dollar deal. Seems like everyone needed a fresh start from the manager, and Alex Cora brings the young feel to it. There Was Tension Last Season Mookie Betts admitted that there was tension last season, saying, “I think (there was) just tension in the locker room as far as if things were down. We could have had...

Hanley Ramirez Is Using the TB12 Method

Red Sox Getting into the TB12 Method Hanley Ramirez is finding ways to stay in good shape. Ramirez is apparently taking a page out of the TB12 method to better himself. We’ve seen other teammates on the Patriots use Brady’s program, but now it has shifted to the Red Sox players. Ramirez Spoke About the Workout Plan Hanley spoke to the media last week about Brady’s workout plan, saying, “I went on the Tom Brady side I think it’s 100 percent everything he says in the book, the work he does, makes sense.” Hanley had offseason shoulder surgery and...

Growing up at McCoy Stadium

McCoy Stadium, home of the Pawtucket Red Sox, is a great place to go see a game. They have cheap tickets only $11 and parking is free. Furthermore, it’s also home of baseball’s longest game (33 innings) in 1980. McCoy Stadium had some renovations done in 1992 and in 1999. In addition, it’s also home of the 2004 Triple A All-Star Game. Ben Mondor was the owner and after he died a few years ago his wife took over the team. What Will They Do with McCoy? In 2017 it was found that renovations for the ballpark would cost...

Will David Price Win Back the Media and Fans?

New Year New Price? David Price is entering a new season in his $31 million dollar contract. We’ve seen little work from him. His comments last year made it was clear he didn’t like being in Boston. Price has a 3.48 ERA in his two seasons with the Red Sox. Price’s peak moment last year was getting to a scuffle with Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley.

Spring Training Is Here, Begins Wednesday

Baseball in the Air… Spring Training is here and begins this week. Players will make their way to Fort Myers soon. The quiet offseason for the Red Sox has been frustrating. But we’ve been distracted with the other sports teams in Boston to really pay attention. The Red Sox have been in the back corner hiding this offseason while the other three teams are on the spotlight. Spring Training Begins This Week The Red Sox can’t hide for long, and will be the only team playing in a few months. The mindset of Dave Dombrowski now getting a power...

The Patriots Storm Has Arrived

Whew! What a 48 hours for the Patriots since Sunday night. Since the Super Bowl, Malcolm Butler has released a statement. Matt Patricia is now head coach of the Detroit Lions. Josh McDaniels is now back to the Patriots as offensive coordinator. McDaniels’s return can only mean one thing: when Belichick retires, which looks probable after the 2018 season, McDaniels will take over.  For McDaniels to completely change his mind he must know that he will be the next in line once Belichick leaves. Robert Kraft probably made that clear to him yesterday and -oh yes, you know- Tom...

What Does the Super Bowl Loss Mean?

Malcolm Butler Should Have Been on the Field The Patriots’ Super Bowl loss last night was solely on the defense. Brady played a hell of a game, passing for 505 yards and no interceptions. However Bill Belichick didn’t like what Malcolm Butler did during the week. If Butler missed curfew or was picking fights in the locker room we will never know. Belichick Put All the Pressure on Brady and the Offense Belichick believed that the best option was to sit Butler, substitute in Eric Rowe, and put all the work on Tom Brady and the offense. This let...

Can Tom Brady Pass Michael Jordan Sunday?

Tom Brady or Michael Jordan? It’s no question Tom Brady is already the greatest quarterback of all time. Tom Brady is going for his sixth Super Bowl win on Sunday. With a sixth Super Bowl win he will have had as many championships as Michael Jordan. The Patriots’ 18 year dynasty is unheard of and will never happen again. Michael Jordan won all of his titles before the age of 40. Tom Brady is still playing at a high level at 40. With a win on Sunday Tom Brady will pass Michael Jordan as the greatest athlete of all...

New England Patriots Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl Preview

It’s that time of year again. Once again the New England Patriots are playing the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl. The last time these two teams played in the Super Bowl was in 2004, when coincidentally the Patriots also lost both coordinators following a win. It was their third Super Bowl win in three seasons. The Patriots could be looking at their sixth Super Bowl title since 2001. Simply amazing! Familiar Faces The Patriots will see two familiar faces on the field next week. LeGarrette Blount and Chris Long are former Patriots who both signed with the Eagles in...

Relax, Tom Brady Will Be Fine

BRADY WILL BE READY TO GO SUNDAY Tom Brady cut his hand from hitting the buckle on someone’s helmet. He has four stitches around the knuckle and should not affect him. That is according to Mike Felger, who had a source close to Brady’s injury. Brady also missed practice yesterday but was throwing the ball around today. Fans, even myself, thought the injury was fake, but the players wouldn’t put that much effort in making up a story. They are playing the Jaguars. Brady could play with one arm and still beat them. THE PATRIOTS WILL BE FINE AND SO...

AFC Championship Going Through Foxborough Again

Another Year Another Championship Game In Foxborough The AFC Championship game will once again be held in Foxborough. This will be the seventh year in a row that the Patriots will play in the AFC title game. Unlike last year they will not be playing the Steelers. Instead they will be taking on Blake Bortles and the Jacksonville Jaguars. I hate to say it, but the Patriots will crush the Jaguars. The same fate will be true for whoever they play in the Super Bowl. The four quarterbacks left in the playoffs are Tom Brady, Case Keenum, Blake Bortles,...

Patriots Have The Number-One Seed — Again

The Patriots Once Again Have The Number-One Seed They did it again.  Number-one seed. Yes, they are a good team, but let’s face it, the rest of the AFC is terrible. The Patriots will host the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night, in the Divisional Playoff game. The last time the Titans came to Foxboro, was 2015. The Patriots won 33-16, and Brady threw for 267 yards and two touchdowns in the win. They have been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons recently, which is what makes them play their best. The Patriots love to ignore the noise,...

The ESPN Article Tells Us Nothing

The ESPN Article Tells Us Nothing The ESPN article on the rift in New England is nothing new. The main Boston media and myself have been saying for weeks that there’s a rift. Belichick, Brady, and Kraft stand united because that’s what is best for the team. The only thing that matters right now is getting ready for the playoffs. Did Belichick want to keep Garoppolo? Yes. Did Kraft side with Brady? Yes. Brady is the franchise guy and the most important player in the sport. Robert Kraft spoke to Peter King and denied the ESPN report saying it...

Robert Kraft Only Thinking About the Present?

Robert Kraft Stepped In Robert Kraft stepped in and traded Jimmy Garoppolo this season. Going into 2018 Garoppolo is now 7-0 as a starter in the NFL. In the five games with the 49ers Garoppolo passed for 1,560 yards with seven touchdowns. Garoppolo has proven that he is a legit NFL quarterback in the NFL. Meanwhile in New England the Patriots have 40-year-old Tom Brady, who really has not been playing well. He threw an interception against the Steelers for the first time since 2005. It’s clear Bob Kraft wanted to move on from Garoppolo and keep Brady who is...
