Vallee’s View: Patriots Get Clean Bill of Health

All it took was one drive.  After meandering through the injury plagued final weeks of the season with uninspired play, bizarre coaching decisions, and un-Patriot like mistakes, New England needed all of 4 minutes and 33 seconds to right the ship.  With a rare opportunity to open the game on offense, Tom Brady lined up in shotgun and proceeded to carve and slice his way through the Kansas City defense,…

MLB At Large: I Love the Justin Upton Signing for the Tigers.

The Detroit Tigers signed outfielder Justin Upton to a 6 year, $132 million dollar contract on Monday. The 28 year old spent last season with the Padres. Baseball insiders have been critical of the deal because they view it as too much money for a player who strikes out a lot. What?? I love the deal for the Tigers. It reinforces the notion that they have become one of baseball’s…

NFL At Large: Doc’s Thoughts on the Divisional Round Playoff Games. 

The bandwagoneers are jumping ship in Seattle. 1. The Patriots returned to form against the Chiefs because Julian Edelman played. Edelman is the Patriots most important receiver, even more important than Gronk. He is a tremendous route runner and he enables the Patriots to get the ball out quick.

Image of the Day: Brady and the Three Number One’s. 

Yup….This picture pretty much sums it all up. While the other three quarterbacks are great, they will never be Tom Brady. He’s in a class all by himself. He’s the GOAT. And yes, that includes Manning. I’m lumping him with Newton and Palmer. I don’t put Manning in Brady’s class, even if Denver wins this week. Brady is better.
