With six picks this year in the top four rounds, New England should get busy starting April 26. No one knows which direction Coach Bill Belichick will take, so instead of guaranteeing failure with predictions (check out our upcoming mock draft!) we’re focusing on positions we’d like to see Mr. Kraft and Co. address.
DAY ONE (Round One): The Pats have two picks in the first round (27 and 31 overall), and we hope – nay, we insist – they use at least one of them on a pass rusher. We won’t dwell on New England’s recent, lackluster picks, but we can shoot a wistful glance toward the Texans’ roster and get a sense of what we’re missing (Connor Barwin, Brooks Reed and Brian Cushing).
Rumors abound regarding a trade up for North Carolina monster Quinton Coples (6-foot-6, 284). We’re not making predictions, but if we were, that would be a poor one. Still, we’d take any player who would force an opposing offense to game plan for him.

The Patriots have lost their leading -- and most reliable -- rusher in BenJarvus Green-Ellis, opening up a hole in the New England backfield. Bill Belichick will likely need to plug that hole at some point, but Matt Forte isn't going to be the guy to do it. A Rotoworld.com article by Evan Silva predicted that Forte will end up landing with New England in exchange for second-...
Bill Belichick did an about-face from last year, and made an appearance at the coaches breakfast at the NFL Owners Meetings this morning.
For those who had their indignant column already lined up to go, this development was no doubt a disappointment, as instead, they had to listen to the coach say “we’ll see how it goes” in about 100 different ways this morning. It is March...
In a move that would surprise no one, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick showed up to Alabama's pro day Thursday, but Belichick also brought reinforcements, which was intriguing. Belichick and Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban have been friends in the same football wolf pack for years now, and Alabama has turned out an impressive set of pros in recent years. Therefore, it made...
Brian Hoyer hasn't had many opportunities to goof around, while playing for a no-nonsense coach like Bill Belichick.

But once the two were done hooping...

Last week I came across the Coop & Nate Show. I was stuck at work and so I started flipping through the TuneIn Radio app on my phone. I really wanted to catch some of my collegues on the BTR network, but it was too early in the day. Instead, I got stuck with some ESPN radio garbage.
As I flipped through my options of ESPN shows, I deceided to listen to a show out of...
As if the Patriots and Jets didn't need any more incentive to hate each other, New England tight end Rob Gronkowski and New York cornerback Darrelle Revis managed to get under one another's skin on national television this week. Most notably, Revis called Patriots head coach Bill Belichick a "jerk." Later, Gronkowski deemed Jets quarterback Tim Tebow as their starter...
- ESPN had Darelle Revis and Gronk in-studio this week. A host had the two of them do word association, which is always death. Small consolation: they also got to break stuff. This led to ample awkwardness and Revis saying “jerk” when Bill Belichick’s name came up, which is perfectly reasonable and probably even a descriptor that the Grumblelord would self-ascribe. Yet horrible...
