Jimmy Garoppolo’s First NFL Touchdown On The New England Patriots

Someday someone will look back at this post and chuckle about the days when Garoppolo was just a backup quarterback. If they are young enough, they might not even remember Tom Brady playing. Yet, as I sit here typing in 2014, I hope that we don’t have to see anymore TD’s from Garoppolo for at least a couple more years. Because if Garoppolo is hiting Gronk in the end zone,...

A (Friendly) 49′ers Fan’s Take On The Patriots’ Blow Out Loss

This tale of optimism is brought to by redditor IAmADuckSizeHorseAMA (link here): “I know it was rough last night, but no team goes without an occasional ass whooping occasionally (take it from me, I know). However, I’d like to try and restore some faith in you all, if for no other reason, I know how it feels to have everyone root for you to lose and want to at the very least...

Don’t Panic: Week 4 Risers and Fallers

The bad losses have been few and far between in the Brady/Belichick era.  Still, there are those few games that can’t help but stick out. A 31-0 rout at the hands of the Buffalo Bills in Week 1 of the 2003 season. The time the Brady-less Pats were left scratching their heads when Miami broke out the Wildcat. Getting lit up in the Super Dome by the Saints in 2009. The steamroll...

Will the Patriots offense get better? Jon Gruden thinks so!

Did anyone else curl up into a ball listening to the Five Stairsteps famous song, "Ooh Child" (Things are Gonna Get Easier) after watching last night's game? Oh I guess I was the only one! Listen I am not going to sit here and waste your time reflecting about what happened last night. I think we have all been tortured enough. The real question is will the Pats offense...

Getting blown out is what the Patriots needed

Monday night against the Kansas City Chiefs was the worst Patriots game in recent memory. 41-14 is a number we are used to seeing, but it's the Patriots blowing a team out, not getting blown out. That was a huge punch in the gut/stomach/groin. I've been optimistic about the Patriots all season, believing each week that they will finally get the ball rolling. This week...

Vote: Who Deserves The Most Blame For The Patriots’ Disappointing Start?

Times are tough at Gillette Stadium these days. The New England Patriots are 2-2 after losing 41-14 on Monday Night Football to the Kansas City Chiefs. The loss was the team’s second-worst defeat since Bill Belichick took over as head coach in 2000. Media and fans alike have offered a variety of reasons for why New England is struggling, but perhaps no one has taken more criticism...

Did any New England Patriots crack the latest NFL heroes and goats list?

Some teams are off to a fast start, others are stumbling out of the gates, and a majority are languishing somewhere in the middle. That’s the NFL landscape after four games. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad. Who fell into each...

Ex-Patriots Rodney Harrison: Tom Brady 'looks scared to death'

The New England Patriots have played just four games, so it’s way too early to say their season is doomed.Still, the team’s play so far certainly hasn’t inspired confidence.

Belichick the GM is hurting Patriots more than helping

Tom Brady looked every day of his 37 years on Monday night in the Patriots’ blowout loss in Kansas City. In three of their four games, in fact, he and the offense have been a shadow of what the NFL has been accustomed to. The biggest reason, besides the possibility that Brady is declining at his advanced age? His proven offensive teammates have disappeared from New England one...

Reality Check: The New England Patriots Are Not A Good Team Right Now

In case you missed it, last night on Monday Night Football, the Patriots played one of their worst games in recent memory, in a 41-14 beating from the Kansas City Chiefs. It’s gut check time, from the coaching staff, to the players, something is wrong in New England. With the…

New England Patriots shut out of NFL offensive awards (and disappointments) so far

There’s an old saying in the NFL: Teams can’t win a championship in September, but they certainly can lose one. Translation? Getting off to a good start doesn’t ensure late-season success, but struggling out of the gates almost guarantees that a team won’t be playing in January. That’s why taking a moment to look at the state of the NFL one-fourth of the way through the...

Rodney Harrison: Tom Brady looks ‘scared to death’ in the pocket

Former New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison thinks Tom Brady looks “scared to death” when he drops back in the pocket to pass. Harrison, who is currently an analyst for NBC Sports, said Tuesday on WEEI 93.7 FM in Boston that it “hurt” him to see his former team get crushed 41-14 Monday night against the Kansas City Chiefs. “I’m trying to be mellow, but it really...

Waiver Wired, Week 5: Bye Bye Brady

We've survived the first bye week with six of the better teams in the league on a two week vacation. It led to unusual results and other players taking a turn in the other spotlight. Miami and Oakland are the only teams on bye in Week 5 after they beat up on each other in London, so there aren't that many players you need to replace this week. Oakland also needs to replace...

Did Tom Brady snub Jimmy Garoppolo?

Thursday night’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs was easily one of the most embarrassing of Tom Brady’s career. Brady was benched with the New England Patriots trailing 41-7 in the fourth quarter. The move was probably more about preserving Brady’s health than giving rookie Jimmy Garoppolo some regular season reps, but there has already […]

Donovan McNabb, Jay Glazer go at it over whether this is Tom Brady’s final year with the Patriots

Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb believes this could be Tom Brady’s final season with the Patriots if he doesn’t improve his play. FOX NFL Insider Jay Glazer strongly disagrees and both guys went at it last night. I agree with Glazer, Brady needs more weapons and a line. Every quarterback looks bad when his line can’t block. var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551', Size...

Bill Belichick laughs at a Tom Brady question

Tom Brady was horrible last night, to put it sort of politely. He turned the ball over three times (an interception and two fumbles) while the Patriots were roundhouse kicked by Kansas City, losing 41-14. But while Brady’s slump and downward slide is real, his entire team was horrible too. He received little help from his offensive line, Rob Gronkowski still isn’t really Rob...

One of Brady’s picks was returned for a touchdown, and he was strip sacked in the third quarter. After the...

Brady snubs rookie Garoppolo after touchdown pass

TweetThe New England Patriots were blown out by the Kansas City Chiefs Monday night, with star QB Tom Brady uncharacteristically playing terrible football. Brady was so bad that he was pulled in the 4th quarter with the score 41-7. Brady’s backup Jimmy Garoppolo came in to mop up for New England and promptly led the first team offense on a scoring drive, throwing his first career...
