Patriots: Belichick may have secured the steal of the NFL Draft in Christian Barmore

August 9, 2021

Photo by David Rosenblum/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Follow me on twitter @zcarey13 The New England Patriots had one of the most opportunistic sequences to start their 2021 NFL Draft that I have seen in a while. In the first round, sitting at pick 15, Mac Jones fell to New England who scooped him up quickly after staying put during Justin Fields‘ slide. Mac had one of the best college…


Patriots: Belichick says Newton is the starter four days into camp

July 31, 2021

FOXBOROUGH – Didn’t see that one coming. Bill Belichick met with the media via Zoom early on Saturday morning prior to the last practice of the week and dropped a mini bombshell, saying Cam Newton is the starting quarterback. Now, he’s said that for a while now, but we’ve also heard that everyone needs to earn their spot as well, so when it came out of his mouth before some…


Patriots: Players’ thoughts from training camp – Day 3

July 30, 2021

Friday morning provided us with the best competition between Mac Jones and Cam Newton that we’ve seen thus far. The two went toe-to-toe in various passing situations after the first two days were mostly red zone work. Following practice, Newton and Jones both met with the media in person for the very first time as well. Here’s everything (literally just about everything) that stood out from the two guys everyone…


Patriots: Thoughts from Coach Belichick on Day 2 of training camp

July 29, 2021

Bill Belichick did not speak with the media on Wednesday before or after the first day of on field work, but he was back in front of the cameras and microphones on Thursday prior to the start of day two. “Good to get back on the field and get started here,” he said. “Yesterday, as I said the other day, is really a continuation of the spring practice routine, mini-camps,…


Patriots Draft: 10 Prospects to keep an eye on at the Senior Bowl

January 30, 2021

The Senior Bowl kicks off today at 2 pm on NFL Network. Here are 10 prospects that fit the Patriot Way that the organization will be keeping a close eye on. 1. Jaime Newman, QB Wake Forest (American): Newman transferred to Georgia after the 2019 season but opted out due to COVID-19. Newman has terrific size at 6-4 230. He has plus arm strength and is accurate vertically. He must…


Patriots: Breaking down Bill Belichick’s weekly OMF interview on WEEI

November 24, 2020

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Yikes. If the past few weeks were two of the best Bill Belichick interviews by Ordway, Merloni and Fauria, then this one easily wins the award for most awkward. Belichick was not in a chatty mood as you’d expect after the 27-20 loss in Houston, so, credit to the guys for not backing down, but pissy Bill can make interviews quite cringeworthy. Right from the jump…


Patriots: Recapping Bill Belichick’s weekly OMF interview on WEEI

November 11, 2020

We’re taking a different approach this week. After arguably the interview of the year so far last week following the Buffalo loss, Bill Belichick’s weekly appearance with Ordway, Merloni and Fauria was another all-timer for awkward silence on Tuesday. More importantly, it was another fantastic segment where Bill opened up a bit more than he normally would. In fairness – as Ordway pointed out to start the interview – a…


Patriots: Recapping Bill Belichick’s weekly OMF interview on WEEI

October 27, 2020

In a rather stunning turn of events, Bill Belichick actually answered questions from Glenn Ordway, Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria like a normal human being on Monday. After the embarrassment that was the 33-6 blowout on Sunday, it was just assumed that BB would be his usual ornery self when he met with the guys on Monday. That wasn’t really the case though as Bill gave some legitimately honest answers…


Patriots: Breaking down some interesting nuggets from weekly Belichick interview on WEEI

September 8, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06 For years now, WEEI has always hosted a ‘Patriots Monday’, interviewing players and coaches throughout the day. The afternoon drive show OMF (Glenn Ordway, Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria) is lucky enough to have Bill Belichick on during the season, and Monday evening provided another glimpse into the mind of BB as he gets set for Opening Day against Miami. While his tone will literally never…


Vallee’s View: Patriots Stun Steelers; The NFL is King

December 22, 2017

By Michael Vallee Sometimes the star of a game is an individual player.  Someone that steals the show with a singular effort.  Think Michael Jordan, sick with the flu, dropping 38 on the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals.  Sometimes the star of a game is an entire team, one that collectively takes over with a transcendent performance.  The New England Patriots trailing 28-3 and winning the Super Bowl certainly…
