The New England Patriots boast one of the most passionate fanbases in the NFL. People are starting to question if they win again under the Bill Belichick and Tom Brady regime?The Patriots are always competitive and seem to always be in the Super Bowl or very close to the big game. But it seems like their best days might just be behind them. Their last Super Bowl championship was in 2004.The last few years that they have been in the Super Bowl with their match-ups against the New York Giants, they had chances to win but key plays weren’t executed and didn’t go as planned and there were some dropped passes that former Patriot Wes Welker contributed to.Last season New England was the favorite to win it all but they seemed to wet the bed in the AFC title game against the eventual Super Bowl champ Ravens. Baltimore picked them apart and didn’t give Tom Brady any kind of breathing room. Brady is a player that we’re so use to handling pressure but maybe time is running out for the organiza...

Breaking Down the 2013 Patriots Schedule

When the NFL announced the schedules for the 2013 season I couldn’t help but think back to this moment last year. I sat at my computer giggling to myself like a child as ESPN released the joke that was the 2012 Patriots schedule. Only 2 teams caught my eye as I poured over the list in front of me, and both of them would beat us at some point in the season. The Ravens and the 49ers...

Jamar Taylor Goes No. 29 Overall in Seven-Round Patriots Mock Draft

As the draft approaches and official visits are out of the way, we know many players that the Patriots have had contact with in the 2013 class, but that doesn’t always matter with New England.

Patriots hoping to make most of 5 draft picks

The New England Patriots have some familiar needs in the NFL draft as they try to improve the secondary and at wide receiver.

Patriots Draft Links because I have no idea what I’m doing

NFL Games Worth Waking Up For

One of the things that sucks about being an NFL fan based in Australia are the kickoff times for the majority of the games. Primetime games aren’t too bad in Brisbane since they start at 10:30 and 11:30 but the CBS and Fox games are at 3:00 or 4:00 in the morning and then 6:30 and 7:30. For most adults the late games are doable but personally, I’m not a functioning human until...
