Patriots: Despite loss, Mac Jones continues to show he’s the right guy for New England

October 4, 2021

PHOTO: AP Photo/Elise Amendola I think we can all agree the Patriots have their quarterback of the future. Many fans were still on the fence about the first round draft pick, but Jones should have put any questions you may have had about his ability to lead to bed on Sunday night after going toe-to-toe with Tom Brady in the most hyped regular season game in North American sports history….

Patriots: Mac shines, but Brady gets the win in what might have been his final game at Gillette

October 4, 2021

Patriots: Loss of James White tough to take for players on and off the field

September 27, 2021

PHOTO: New England Patriots Throughout training camp and the first few weeks of the season, any time coach Belichick, Ivan Fears or a teammate has had the opportunity to praise James White’s leadership or compliment the type of man he is, they’ve done so at great length.

Patriots: Mac Jones gets his first NFL win, but knows there’s plenty of room to improve

September 19, 2021

Photo: NFL.com I’m sure Mac Jones had a bit of a different picture in his head when he dreamed of his first win in the NFL. It wasn’t a 300-yard, four-touchdown performance. It wasn’t a blowout. It wasn’t even all that entertaining, but New England’s 25-6 win over the Jets on Sunday gave Jones the first victory of his career. Jones finished with 186 yards and 22 completions on 30…
