In some ways, the Roast of Tom Brady brought some closure to the dynasty years

May 7, 2024

The Roast of Tom Brady on Sunday was three hours of Brady’s former teammates, celebrities and Bill Belichick roasting the GOAT. It was the television event we knew we needed, but weren’t sure we were ever going to get.  To his his credit, Brady sat there and took barb after barb. From jokes about his marriage to his playing career, Brady got hit from all sides.  It was great to…


Thoughts on episodes 7 & 8 of ‘The Dynasty’

March 8, 2024

We’re down to the final four episodes of this somewhat controversial ‘The Dynasty’ documentary on Apple TV. Personally, I haven’t found this to be as bad as a lot of other people. I think some of the B-roll and behind the scenes stuff has been well worth the watch. Have stories been embellished to make Bill Belichick look slightly worse? Sure. Are there some glaring omissions in some of the…


Thoughts on episodes 5 & 6 of ‘The Dynasty’

March 1, 2024

We continue our look at the Apple TV+ ‘The Dynasty’ documentary after eposes five and six dropped on Thursday. This will be much shorter than the outrageous 5,000 word breakdown I had for episodes three and four, but in fairness, that Spygate episode was pretty damn entertaining with some good stuff that we’d never seen or heard before. Anyways, here’s some thoughts while watching the most recent episodes… Episode 5…

February 23, 2024

Image courtesy of Apple TV+ Alright, the first two episodes of The Dynasty didn’t disappoint with a nostalgic look back at the early days of this magical 25 year run, and even some 90’s love for those of us who grew up with Bledsoe being ‘the guy.’ The next two episodes were a bit puzzling, but still entertaining as hell. Episode 3 was an incredible trip down memory lane and…


Takeaways from the first two episodes of ‘The Dynasty’

February 18, 2024

Image courtesy of Apple TV+ I’m a little late to the party, but finally got to sit and watch the first two episodes of The Dynasty on Apple TV this weekend. Admittedly having lived through the dynasty days and seen every DVD and read every book possible, I thought this might be just a recap of everything we all already knew. But, the first two episodes were outstanding and provided…

Is getting Brady Day out of the way early a favor for Mac Jones?

May 11, 2023

Image courtesy of New England Patriots & NEFJ The big news around this area on schedule day was that Tom Brady is coming back for the home opener. When the Patriots host the defending NFC Champion Eagles at 4:25 on September 10, the GOAT will be recognized on what is sure to be an emotional day in Foxborough. To me, it feels way too early. Think about when the Red…

The HC of the NEP and the now retired Brady took a pretty deep dive into certain aspects of their relationship for about a half hour on Monday night, much to the surprise of anyone who’s…

I was out at the East-West game…


The Patriots should draft a quarterback in this year’s draft. Here’s why

AP Photo/Michael Conroy Purdue’s Aidan O’Connell could be a really good system fit for the Patriots if they decide to draft a quarterback this April. I have long been a firm believer in the philosophy of Mike Shanahan and Mike Holmgren when it comes to quarterbacks and developing the position. Draft as many of them as you can. Both Shanahan and Holmgren believed that by drafting or signing quarterbacks every……
