Patriots investment in special teams is the best way to fix a unit that has struggled the last two years

March 19, 2023

Contrary to what some Patriots fans think, the best way for the team to fix their troubled special teams units is by upgrading the talent on them, not firing the coordinator. Fans want to fire special teams coach Cam Achord but that would only solve so much of the problem. The Patriots needed to upgrade the talent on their special teams units and they did that this week. It all…


Patriots: Collins Signing Highlights Underwhelming Linebacker Play

October 5, 2022

The Patriots brought back Jamie Collins this week, the linebacker’s fourth stint with the team. He won Super Bowls in 2014 and 2018 with the Patriots and brought a high degree of athleticism to the group. His signing now, however, is not about a return to the glory days of an elite Patriots linebacking corps that featured Collins, Dont’a Hightower and Kyle Van Noy. It is about a group that…

Patriots: Pats get first win with grind-it-out effort in Pittsburgh

September 18, 2022

Photo – Don Wright/AP The final 6:33 of Sunday’s 17-14 win over the Steelers should give Patriots fans quite a bit of hope, even though the second game of the year still left a lot to be desired offensively. Clinging to a three-point lead, New England used 13 plays to run out the entirety of the remaining clock, dominating the Steelers up front while Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson iced…

Patriots: Heading into first preseason game, defense has plenty of confidence & might just be better than we thought

August 10, 2022

Yes, the offense has looked poor for the majority of training camp, but that’s because we may have severely underestimated this defense heading into training camp. After two weeks, it’s clear the offensive line still needs time to get communication down – David Andrews and Mac Jones said as much earlier this week – but part of the reason it’s looked so bad at times is because the defense is…

Patriots: Mack Wilson is a Wild Card for the Patriots Defense

May 6, 2022

The Patriots went against what many thought they would do on Draft Weekend and did not select a single linebacker in the NFL Draft. Despite it being a deep linebacker class, New England chose to address other areas of the roster. That says a lot about how they feel about their current linebacker depth chart. Though unproven, the Patriots are high on Cameron McGrone and are expecting a career resurgence…


Patriots: The Winovich, Wilson trade gives both players the fresh start they needed

March 16, 2022

The Patriots traded defensive end Chase Winovich yesterday to the Cleveland Browns for linebacker Mack Wilson. The trade is a fresh start for both players. Winovich never really became the player the Patriots or their fans were hoping for when he was drafted in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He flashed potential at times but he was never a fit schematically. Winovich amassed 85 tackles and 11…
