    In response to wozzy's comment: We will jump from 15th in sacks, where we've ranked for a while up into the top 3 thanks to additions at DT.   Trends sweep through the NFL.  Occasionally Bill Belichic more »

    BB's only attempted point throwaway was a fourth down dare on the Patriots side of the 50 yard line, coupled with putting Mallett in against Carolina's starters.  Mallett passed the test.  Pretty good more »

  • Forum Post: Easley Update

    Posted 08/22/2014 12:16:45 EDT

    In limited 1-on-1 drills, Easley went 4-2.  In other words, he's currently exhibiting the quickness/power to worm his way past offensive linemen.  That's all he needs. I'd say that he's a go for the M more »

    I'm a skeptic.  The veterans, with the notable exception of Stevan Ridley, need to carry the football in one hand well extended from their body, where just about anybody could knock it loose.  Tom has more »

    In response to prolate0spheroid's comment: At this point, improvements will mostly come through scheme development and coaching rather than roster moves.  They'll continue to tweak the roster, of cour more »

    By the numbers, Houston is ready to win about 4.4 games this year.  Clowney probably isn't bad as a #1 pick and the team was on a bender last year, so I'll give them 5 or 6 victories.  New England doe more »

    Have I ever predicted the Patriots to go 16 and 0?    The Broncos beat the Patriots 26-16.  This was a badly dinged up version of the Patriots on the field.  No Gronk, no Hernandez of course, no Amend more »

    Surprises: Bequette went 9-6 in his 1-on-1 competitions. That's almost a reason to keep him.  He's doing what Nink (6-7) and Chandler Jones (7-12) didn't do.  However, Bequette sometimes did this agai more »

    The entire concept of a running quarterback is suspect.  Two bad things happen to a running quarterback.  First, he gets gunshy more quickly because he gets hit more.  Second, he gets injured more qui more »

    Commy, it's your opinion that flat-out speed is better than lateral speed, arm length and other traits.  The Oakland Raiders have bought into that flat-out speed kills thing whole hog.  They've often more »

    If I had to come up with an effective defensive ranking, I'd ask, on every defensive or offensive play, did the defense improve their chances of victory a whole lot based on yardage gained or lost? Th more »

    Some Patriots players are likely to have a second year breakout and some aren't. As a rule, BB's first round draft choices have to be able to play immediately.  They usually aren't second years.  Easl more »

    In response to wonderdrums' comment: [QUOTE] . . . As as far as Coples goes. I haven't seen enough of the guy to have an opinion. Hopefully they signed him to a big fat first round contract and it has more »

    I started the day after draft day with "Motivation" Coples and I'm not about to abandon the moniker now.  Motivation was the knock on the guy in college.  Then Rex Ryan benched him during rookie camp. more »

    Justin Jones is desperately bad at blocking anyone and anything.  He hasn't played football for a year and on top of that he's naturally clumsy.  Then there are Justin's study habits. Oh, and he can d more »

    Just guessing:  week 15.  I see no tiebreakers by the end of week 14 because of three division games to end the season.   Patriots go 11-3 in week 15 because Miami simply gives up after going 6-7 in w more »

    The fourth best deep ball thrower on this team is Julian Edelman.  He caught a lateral and then successfully threw a forward pass in practice.  That play is in the playbook.  Wait for it. Not that Ede more »

    Tiny Tyms is on the roster.  31 teams in the NFL have a 53 man cutdown around September 1, but Bill Belichick's cutdown limit is about 57, and Tyms is just one of those freebies.  Brandon Browner does more »

    All right, I'm hearing that Brady didn't have anybody open deep last year, and this year he has tall receivers growing like corn:  LaFell, Tyms, Gronk, Dobson for starters, plus an H-back to be named more »

    In response to BostonTrollSpanker's comment:

    p.s. Peyton can only throw for about 20 yards now, should Denver platoon also?


    Does Denver have a choice of quarterbacks?

    Precedents for platooning quarterbacks: New England firmly believes in the “thunder and lightning” platooning approach for running backs. BB tries to keep a mix of RBs on his bench, from 250 pound more »

    I could hope that this forecast is overly negative and that Gronk has a Wes Welker miracle year, but I respect uninvolved outsiders' opinions. more »
