Patriots: 2020 Patriots could better off with Newton than they would be with Brady

July 1, 2020

Image courtesy of By Kevin Stone/@kstone06 The 2020 Patriots as constituted are better off with Cam Newton as their quarterback. Now, since most people only see, read and hear what they choose to see, read and hear, let me be PERFECTLY CLEAR about this… Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time. Tom Brady will always be better than Cam Newton. Tom Brady deserves a statue outside Gillette…


NEFJ Notebook for 6/21/20

June 21, 2020

1. First, Happy Fathers Day to all the dad’s out there. Moms are the glue that keeps a household together. Dads are the foundation. 2. I have to admit, it stung seeing Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski in Buccaneers uniforms. It wasn’t suppose to end this way but thus is life in pro sports. (Photos courtesy of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) 3. Speaking of the Buccaneers. They have shut down…


Brady as a Buccaneer: First Look

June 16, 2020

All photos courtesy of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. By Kevin Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj  Is everyone ok? The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady unveiled “official” photos of him in the uniform for the first time on Tuesday, and social media quickly buzzed. I am in the minority here and think he actually looks kind of normal – in a time where there is none – or at least it doesn’t seem as…

Patriots: Patriots trade Rob Gronkowski and a seventh round pick to the Buccaneers for a 4th round pick

April 21, 2020

In a completely unexpected trade this afternoon, former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski ended his retirement and was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to reunite with Tom Brady. Bill Belichick sent Gronkowski and a seventh round pick to Tampa Bay for a fourth round pick. Pick #117 to be exact. The deal was surprising, especially when you consider that Gronkowski was pretty adamant last spring that he was done….


Patriots: 6 takeaways from Tom Brady’s interview with Howard Stern

April 9, 2020

Tom Brady’s long awaited interview with Howard Stern took place yesterday morning. After an hour plus of chatting it up with Stern, we learned that Brady has tried weed, swears, pisses off Giselle and knew that last season was his last with the Patriots. There were six things that Brady shared that I want to talk about. Here they are. 1. Brady knew 2019 was his last season in New…


Patriots: Brady press conference just didn’t seem right

March 25, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj Tom Brady is officially a Tampa Bay Buccaneer following his introductory conference call on Tuesday afternoon. However, Brady sounded more like a child who was being sent away to boarding school immediately regretting his decisions rather than a free agent eager to take on a new challenge.  Brady – as he’s done his whole career – took the high road during the call, refusing to truly…


Thank you Tom Brady

March 18, 2020

The day that some of us never thought would come has come. Tom Brady is done. Not with football but with the New England Patriots. The greatest quarterback of all time will not be riding off into the sunset as a Patriot. Instead, he will be taking his talents south to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It wasn’t suppose to end this way for Tom Brady in New England. We weren’t…


Patriots: Brady to the Bucs? It might be his only option outside of New England

March 15, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj Tom Brady. Six-time Super Bowl champion. And…Tampa Bay Buccaneer? With teams reportedly dropping like flies in the Tom Brady free agent sweepstakes, it appears as if the Bucs and Patriots are the last two teams TB12 has to choose from (although you can’t count out the Raiders just yet). What would it do to his legacy if he finished his career with a mediocre franchise? Well,…


NFL: The Bucs Season May Be Derailed Before It Even Starts

June 24, 2018

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to be without starting quarterback Jameis Winston for the first three games of the regular season after Winston was suspended for violating the NFL’s conduct policy. Winston allegedly sexual assaulted a female Uber driver two years ago. After a through investigation, the league concluded that Winston had to be suspended for his actions. The suspension is devastating news for a team that has playoff…
