An Xs and Os View of the Jets
If you’ve had a chance to check out the Patscast podcast one of the regular guests is Jay Shields. Jay is a Patriots-centric Mike Mayock on the show, and shares his insights on the Patriots schemes from an educated football background. In my unending quest to become a more knowledgeable football fan I’ve found Jay’s commentary to be fascinating. Below is a post that Jay made on...

Can’t really argue with any of Joe’s points, and yes that includes the fact that the Pats fast start against the Bengals really helped out their defense.
Fred Taylor on Benjarvus & LoMo
Taylor had plenty of positive things to say about fellow running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis. “Benny, he’s always here asking questions,” Taylor said. “He follows Kevin [Faulk] like he’s his baby brother — in at 6 [a.m.], doing all the things, conditioning early in the morning, weights throughout the season, conditioning after practice. He hits the hole extremely...

Michael Lombardi's Thoughts on Pats-Jets

Tom Brady's Hair Through the Years →
Click the link above for a nice photographic journey into the past of Tom’s coiffe. Now’s probably a good time to just come out and admit that I’ve grown to like the long haired rock star Brady. Sure, it was awkward as we made our way through the Bieber stage (where Edelman’s at now), but now it’s a perfect balance of sexy yet intimdating. And you know it will be...

On the New England Patriots and Draft Philosophy
On Tuesday, upon hearing Laurence Maroney had been traded, I took my usual positive spin to the transaction by tweeting that the Patriots now had seven picks in the first four rounds of the 2011 draft. I characterized this wealth of picks as “scary”. The Patriots have had back to back excellent drafts, and another year of multiple high picks makes the odds pretty good that they will...
