    There are a lot of players, GMs and coaches out there that can't accept that they lost to the Patriots.  This deflategate kind of stuff gives them fodder forever to deflect their own failures and prop more »

    I take this all with a grain of salt.  Freddie Mitchell?  Philly posting its parade route prior to the game?  Dumb stuff on Philly's part and the Patriots barely won that game.  I remember Plaxico Bur more »

    Just the distraction the Patriots need going into the Super Bowl.  It will either unite them or be a huge distraction.  The thing is, they can't win either way.  If they win, they cheated and the vict more »

    Moral of the story here is that the BB's choice to disregard the league's warning about filming years ago forever allows anybody in the media with an anti-Patriots agenda to play up anything and every more »

    We should take D league production with a grain of salt.  Fab Melo looked like a young Duncan in the D-League.  Where is he now?  I liked Powell well enough, he looked like a decent prospect.  Let's s more »

    Only two things will speed up a slow, methodical Boston rebuild.  1. DA has enough hits in the draft to pry away an established star from another team with players and picks.  2.  The C's get lucky in more »

    Small sample size with Smart, granted.  I think by February-March end he is going to be better.  He's acclimating to the NBA game.  Things you can't teach - desire, hustle, tenacity - are there.  I th more »

    Buy him out.  He does nothing for this team.  Let him sign with a contender where he can play some minutes off the bench.

    Anyone think that the protected 1st rounder Cleveland got from OKC in the 3 team trade could make its way to Boston somehow for one of their bigs?  Not sure what the deal would look like, but it would more »

    I see raw talent and intangibles in JG.  Whether he can learn the finer points of being an NFL-calibre QB -- we shall see.  Yes he took some sacks -- he should have been more decisive at times in gett more »

    I like him, but someone somewhere compared his situation to Mark Anderson.  He comes here and is productive and gets overpaid.  Could see that happening with Ayers.  If the price is right, I hope that more »

    He needs to go to team with a strong head coach and veterans who can talk sense to him about doing what he does well.  He could be a very good role player if he stays within what a team is trying to d more »

    Josh Smith is an incredibly athletic player with no basketball IQ. He makes one incredible play and immediately negates it with a his poor shot selection. He should go to a contender as a role player more »

    Finnegan's comments mean nothing.  First, what is Brady supposed to say when constantly asked how long he wants to play - "Er, um, I'm thinking of walking away after this season"?  He's a competitive more »

    Reports from the locker room say that the 11-3 Pats are managing just fine and that the team is looking well-rounded to even dominant at times. Outlier reports to the contrary suggest their demise in more »

    I realise that Rondo could walk without the Celts getting anything in reutrn, but this deal doesn't do it for me even with a future unprotected pick.  Wright is a blossoming 5?  He's a 6 year vet with more »

    If money is no object, then overpay for Shields or Scherzer.  I'd rather they do that than trade prospects to Philly and pay Hamels' salary.

    For this team to compete they'd need Rondo and Melo.  And even then, what does compete mean?  Playoff run?  I don't hink Melo gets this team out of the east.  Who would the C's give up for Melo to get more »

    Theo convinced his owner to outspend John Henry, whose own team put in a pretty respectable offer. How did Theo won? By badly overpaying? I wouldn't want Lester back at what the Sox were offering eith more »

    I am disappointed by the lack of resolve in getting a deal done last year.  It was never clear if the Sox really wanted Lester back when he was theirs, but then they chased him around trying to woo hi more »
