    Celebrating What Is

    With the news of Eric Fisher signing with the Colts, someone on some website called the 2013 draft class one of the all time worst drafts. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/2013/04/25/nfl-draft-first-round-one-selections/2112739/ Belichick traded out of the first round, grabbed Jamie...

    Grade the Pats Draft: How Did BB/Nike Do?

    For sure, I was advocating that college and professional football players should really be given the benefit of the doubt when it comes to marijuana use - above and beyond other 20 year olds. They are putting their bodies on the line for our entertainment. I don't think it's appropriate for a...

    Regarding marijuana usage (which may be worthy of a breakout discussion), Geno Hayes recently passed away due to liver disease that he believed was in part exasperated by his use of over the counter pain medications during his NFL career. He was a 33 years old father of two.

    Pats Draft Poll

    I think they are positioned to trade up - lots of picks in the draft, but not many open roster spots due to their free agent activity. I just am not sure a QB drops to a spot where they can trade up at a reasonable cost. I suspect there's a run on QBs and that the Patriots instead trade up...

    NFL News and Transactions

    I think it's hard to judge Belichick for paying to acquire free agents from other teams by comparing those contracts with contracts that other players took to stay with their existing teams. Just as we applaud Belichick when Andrews turns down bigger deals to stay with the Patriots, we have...
