Patriots put on an unbelievable show in honoring Tom Brady

June 13, 2024

FOXBOROUGH- Tom Brady was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame on Wednesday night. It was an amazing ceremony befitting of the greatest player of all-time, the greatest quarterback of all-time and the greatest Patriot of all-time. NBC’s Mike Tirico emceed the event and he did a good job of hosting the three hour event.  The induction reminded me of a Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony but with…


Damien Harris shares his thoughts on 2022 and Bill Belichick

June 7, 2024

Former Patriots running back Damien Harris was on the Athletic’s Football Show podcast recently with Robert Mays and talked about a variety of things including the offense during the 2022 season. Harris confirmed everything we pretty much already knew. It was a debacle. Harris said the players knew the offense under Matt Patricia and Joe Judge wasn’t going to work even before the season started.  “We knew before our first…


In some ways, the Roast of Tom Brady brought some closure to the dynasty years

May 7, 2024

The Roast of Tom Brady on Sunday was three hours of Brady’s former teammates, celebrities and Bill Belichick roasting the GOAT. It was the television event we knew we needed, but weren’t sure we were ever going to get.  To his his credit, Brady sat there and took barb after barb.

Thoughts on episodes 7 & 8 of ‘The Dynasty’

March 8, 2024

We’re down to the final four episodes of this somewhat controversial ‘The Dynasty’ documentary on Apple TV. Personally, I haven’t found this to be as bad as a lot of other people. I think some of the B-roll and behind the scenes stuff has been well worth the watch. Have stories been embellished to make Bill Belichick look slightly worse? Sure. Are there some glaring omissions in some of the…


Thoughts on episodes 5 & 6 of ‘The Dynasty’

March 1, 2024

We continue our look at the Apple TV+ ‘The Dynasty’ documentary after eposes five and six dropped on Thursday. This will be much shorter than the outrageous 5,000 word breakdown I had for episodes three and four, but in fairness, that Spygate episode was pretty damn entertaining with some good stuff that we’d never seen or heard before. Anyways, here’s some thoughts while watching the most recent episodes… Episode 5…


Latest NFLPA report card paints ugly picture in Foxborough

February 28, 2024

For the second straight year, Patriots players have let it be known just how bad things have gotten around Gillette Stadium. The latest NFLPA team report cards survey over 1,706 players in hopes of highlighting the best working environments or showing who needs help where. The Krafts take quite a hit here with the team ranking 29th overall. It’s the second NFLPA report card in as many years that has…


Spygate changed everything. Especially Bill Belichick

February 25, 2024

After watching episodes 1-4 of The Dynasty on Apple TV, I am convinced that Spygate changed Bill Belichick forever. Former assistant and New York Jets coach Eric Mangini turning on him was a turning point of sorts for Belichick. He went from someone who could deal with the media and tolerate them to someone who did not trust the media or anyone in his own building for that matter. He…


Thoughts from episodes 3 & 4 of ‘The Dynasty’

February 23, 2024

Image courtesy of Apple TV+ Alright, the first two episodes of The Dynasty didn’t disappoint with a nostalgic look back at the early days of this magical 25 year run, and even some 90’s love for those of us who grew up with Bledsoe being ‘the guy.’ The next two episodes were a bit puzzling, but still entertaining as hell. Episode 3 was an incredible trip down memory lane and…
