    Gotta hand it to you...you’ve made a convincing argument.

    The Pounding Pats

    I agree with scott99 - this is all great if the Pats are within a score. But if they fall behind and need to play catch-up, they're going to struggle. They don't have the WRs, and Cam isn't that kind of QB. But they are built to take a lead and hold it. So....just do that!

    Ok sounds good.

    For the "Brady made Belichick" crowd

    Brady made Belichick better. Belichick made Brady better. Both men benefitted from each other. Nothing whatsoever wrong with that. Once the Patriots started being successful under BB, he went 14-6 when Brady wasn't the QB. That's a .700 winning percentage. That's not as good as Brady's...

    It Is Belichick Time

    It's not really close. At all. It's a pretty significant blowout in fact. All due respect, but you should follow the conversation more before making this statement. I specifically asked LJRomanoff how he wanted to compare Grogan and Newton, and offered stats, data within the context of...

    It Is Belichick Time

    Heh, ok. Best individual passing season: Grogan (1979): 206-423 (48.7%), 3,286 yds, 28 td, 20 int, 77.4 rating Newton (2015): 296-495 (59.8%), 3,837 yds, 35 td, 10 int, 99.4 rating Best individual rushing season: Grogan (1978): 81 att, 539 yds, 6.7 avg, 5 td Newton (2012): 127 att, 741...

    NFL.com Power Rankings

    New England could be, IMO, anything from a 7-win team to an 11-win team. Hard to see, with this schedule, them winning more than 11, but they could be a below-average team or a really good team. They still have the best coach in the world, the best secondary in the sport, a really good...

    It Is Belichick Time

    A fair number of good-but-not-great QBs have won SBs. Nick Foles, Eli Manning, Brad Johnson, and even Peyton Manning in 2015/16. Maybe a good-but-not-great QB leads the Pats to 24 points against the Rams in the last Pats' SB. Brady didn't really have a great game that day, which included a...

    Words on things I watched, read & heard

    I suspect that this will mean that teams that have a lot of continuity will have an advantage. Like if the whole Pats' D returned from the year before, they would just know where everyone is supposed to be and communication would be much easier. Now with so many young players on D, they'll...

    It Is Belichick Time

    I'd say that during the 2018 (2019) playoff run, the aspect of play that had the best performance consistently throughout the playoffs was the running game. vs. LAC: 34 att, 155 yds, 4.6 avg, 4 td vs. KC: 48 att, 176 yds, 3.7 avg, 4 td vs. LAR: 32 att, 154 yds, 4.8 avg, 1 td TOT: 114...

    It Is Belichick Time

    So how do you want to do this, since you started the nitpick? Do you want to look at stats? Or do you want to look at MVPs and pro-bowl and all-pro appearances? Or do you want to look at pro-football-reference's "AV" rating, which contextualizes their performance and value? Tell me which way...

    It Is Belichick Time

    You're right. He is much MUCH better than Grogan. We all love Grogan but my word do we overestimate his ability in these parts.

    Dolphins vs Pats Week 1 - Fitz to start for MIA

    Yeah that was very impressive by him and very unimpressive by the Pats' defense. By far New England's worst game in pass defense all season long.

    Dolphins vs Pats Week 1 - Fitz to start for MIA

    Fitz has been hit-or-miss against the Patriots over his career. He's had some great games against NE, but also some godawful ones. Let's hope for the latter this week.
