September 7, 2023

AP Photo/Matt Rourke Former Patriots assistant Matt Patricia is now the Senior Defensive Assistant for the Philadelphia Eagles. Patricia of course was the Patriots primary offensive play caller last season. He was considered Bill Belichick’s right hand man. However after spending 15 years with the Patriots, the two sides parted ways in off-season. Now we are left  wondering if he will impact Sunday’s game in any way? The short answer…

Thanks to Belichick, things were worse than we thought with the Patriots offense.

January 27, 2023

  Thanks to a bombshell article in yesterday’s Boston Herald by Andrew Callahan and Karen Guergian, we got an inside look at just how dysfunctional the Patriots were offensively this season. According to sources who spoke to Callahan and Guergian on the condition of anonymity, the offensive staff was described as “disheveled” and that they were”scrambling” to get things done. One source went as far as to say “I love…


Let’s say you hire an offensive coordinator. What happens to Matt Patricia and Joe Judge?

January 11, 2023

(Photo by Barry Chin/The Boston Globe via Getty Images) Bill Belichick has a lot of decisions to make this off-season. At the top of the list is figuring what to do with Matt Patricia and whether or not he gets to keep his job as the play caller on offense.

Patriots: Despite lack of results, Belichick still backing offensive system

December 6, 2022

For a little while on Tuesday morning, Bill Belichick was in a good mood, smiling during his press conference and giving thoughtful answers during his first press conference of the week. By the end of it, the media workroom at Gillette Stadium was pretty tense as Belichick answered questions and defended the offensive system, staff and play calling that has been under so much scrutiny this season. “We’re not going…


Patriots: Patriots Offense Needs to Throw More Short Passes

November 21, 2022

The Patriots mustered only three offensive points in Sunday’s 10-3 win over the Jets, their worst output of the season. They were able to move the ball well at times, but could not make enough plays (or play calls) once they got inside the Jets 30-yard line. The offensive line struggled mightily and the typically strong Patriots running game was largely ineffective, save for a couple nice runs from Damien…

After extensively watching film this week, we have decided that these are the five areas the Patriots must be better in if they want to make the playoffs. 1.

Patriots: Keeping it simple in the passing game is the key to victory today

October 9, 2022

Keep it simple stupid is an old coaching adage that I think applies to the Patriots when it comes to how they approach today’s game against the Lions offensively. Particularly the passing game. Rookie Bailey Zappe is going to be making his first career and if I were coordinating the Patriots offense, I would build off of what we did last week. I would keep it simple and I would…


Patriots: Patriots Need to Get Kendrick Bourne Back

September 14, 2022

There were many frustrations in the Patriots 20-7 loss to the Dolphins in Week 1, but one of the top ones was the disappearance of Kendrick Bourne. In his first season with New England, Bourne amassed 800 receiving yards and by the end of the season he was the team’s best playmaker. He was one of the few Patriots to play well in the blowout loss to the Bills in…
