Comment on: Brandon LaFell chose the Patriots for Tom Brady, opportunities, and to win - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 03/22/2014 06:32:52 EDT
The Patriots attract good players for the same money because they always have a winning season, and then they have winning seasons because they attract good players for relatively low money.
Comment on: New Jets lineman and Malden native: Pats fans can kick rocks after we win - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 03/14/2014 09:03:38 EDT
He's reading this off of the Jets' cue card for the benefit of the press. Unfortunately, he never grasped that the Jets and Patriots play a second game in 2014.
Comment on: Bill Belichick talks three-cone drill, and the caveat of the scouting combine - Going Deep - Boston.com
Posted 02/24/2014 08:39:11 EST
BB loves levers, length, long gorilla arms on a pass rusher. The guy with the longest arms usually has the best swim move. Mr. Gorilla can also reach laterally an extra inch or so to bump the footba more »
Comment on: A Super Bowl in Foxborough? Worst. Idea. Ever. - Boston Sports Blog - Boston.com
Posted 02/10/2014 05:13:55 EST
New England has had home field advantage in their first playoff game of January for ten of the last eleven years, and in that one other year the team went 11-5 so you can't blame them for not trying. more »
Comment on: What the Patriots can learn from the Seahawks - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 02/05/2014 01:57:44 EST
I see nothing wrong with looking at what the Seahawks did right. In the NFL, guys are going to get injured. BB had an excellent (but quite old) starting two defensive tackles plus Armond Armstead wa more »
Posted 02/05/2014 01:48:03 EST
To be precise, the Pats have had winning records for all of the current century.
Comment on: Patriots on the bubble - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 02/05/2014 10:08:29 EST
I like how Boston sports writers start with "If the Patriots are going to win the Super Bowl", not, "If the Patriots are going to make the playoffs". 5/8 of all teams don't make the playoffs.
Comment on: Week 15 NFL picks - Extra Points - Boston.com

Zuri, I'm 11-2 against the spread this season, and I post regularly on boston.com. http://boston.com/community/forums/sports/patriots/on-the-front-burner/paulk-drops-to-11-2-ats-week-15-power-ratings- more »
Comment on: Does benching Stevan Ridley help or hurt Patriots? - Adam Kaufman - Boston.com Sports
Posted 12/06/2013 12:33:51 EST
A Ridley fumble combined with a pattern of seriously unfair referee decisions is an indication that games are getting fixed for gambling purposes. BB is right to bench Ridley for the rest of that par more »
Comment on: Week 10 NFL picks - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 11/10/2013 09:54:57 EST
Joy reigns at the University of Beating Vegas like a Drum, with Houston losing to Arizona by, how opportune for this to arrive a week after the appropriate research, by 3 points when the Vegas line sa more »
Comment on: Andre Carter has high praise for Patriots in his return - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 10/24/2013 09:54:06 EDT
It seems like every year, the Patriots have some player of quality stashed away where nobody else in the NFL can get the player. Every team has a 53 man limit in September but the Patriots alone pick more »
Comment on: Week 3 NFL picks - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 09/19/2013 02:26:21 EDT
You should see my picks in the New England Patriots / Front Burner section, generally under WEEK xxxxx NFL PICKS and "Game of the Week". I'm beating up the point spread every year. My goal is to be ri more »
Comment on: Rex Ryan backs Wilkerson's guarantee for win, with a caveat - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 09/10/2013 10:29:08 EDT
Two weeks ago, a disgruntled Jets running back uploaded a Jets official cue card that all Jets players had to use. Did anyone see this week's on-message cue card?
Comment on: Tom Brady has 'never had more confidence' - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 05/20/2013 11:10:49 EDT
It's a good sign that Brady's offense just set an NFL record for most first downs in a 16 game season. If TB simply isn't going backwards, that's enough.
Comment on: Seventh-round pick Beauharnais signs - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 05/16/2013 07:27:43 EDT
Below, I just wrote about signing the mature Rutgers guys early and the others late.
Comment on: Another Patriots draft pick signs: CB Logan Ryan - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 05/16/2013 02:15:56 EDT
The Rutgers guys are reportedly good professional character guys. Sign them quick and let them lift weights in Foxboro without issues. The other deaft choices are more questionable. Put their bonus more »
Comment on: In surprise move, Patriots release Kyle Love - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 05/16/2013 02:11:49 EDT
Just speculation, but Love may have been hiding his diabetes from the coaches. He must have known and the coaches might have suspected. Hiding the disease from the coaches, to the point where Love's more »
Comment on: DL Deaderick, WR Holmes released by Patriots; two offensive linemen added - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 05/13/2013 10:05:38 EDT
Churning in the offseason is important to the Belichick system. It's like having dozens of extra seventh round picks. First BB and staff put all sorts of prospects through tryouts. Then the good on more »
Comment on: Track a priority for Jeff Demps in 2013 - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 03/25/2013 09:46:14 EDT
Take #1: Track stars don't get life-ruining traumatic brain injuries. All the money in the world can't buy back a working brain. My guess is that Demps will see if he can make a living at track. If more »
Comment on: A few details on Brady's contract - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 02/27/2013 03:51:46 EST
Many 38 year old quarterbacks aren't worth $10 million or more per year. Brady? Maybe yes, maybe no. If I were him I'd lock in an extra $50 million in mad money for someday, especially with the Pat more »
Comment on: Sunday NFL Combine update - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 02/25/2013 12:33:20 EST
Football isn't about some guy's love life or lack thereof, especially if the guy isn't going to drop into the late twenties.
Comment on: Dimitroff: flat cap changing the game - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 02/23/2013 01:53:26 EST
"Dimitroff said the flat cap puts a premium on drafting well, and developing talent from within." Now we know a bit more about BB picking up (but not drafting) Jeff Demps, Jake Ballard and Armond Arms more »
Comment on: Vollmer had clean-up surgery - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 02/22/2013 09:41:28 EST
The front office will be somewhat afraid to franchise damaged goods. What if the surgery didn't quite clean up the problem? Also, what if the back problem comes back? If who you once were is who yo more »
Comment on: Former Patriots LB Pierre Woods still chasing NFL dream - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 02/18/2013 05:28:46 EST
To be precise, the one very successful alumnus, Adam V., was found by the Patriots' scouting department. I wouldn't be surprised to find Patriots scouts performing due diligence on these marginal guy more »

Posted 02/18/2013 05:17:01 EST
Talib is crazy talk. The guy comes here and spends almost all his time on the bench. He gets injured twice in about eight weeks. BB needs players who can play. His rep is that of a complete brainl more »
