    2020 Pats: NEW CONTEST! Which Newcomers Will Have the Biggest Impact?

    Draft contest!!!

    Hey folks - sorry, I'm very late with this. Whadda mean, it's Thursday! Thanks to SMU Sox for waking me from my SIP slumber... For anyone who wants to play, scoring is just like previous years: three points for each player selected by the Pats in the first three rounds - 4 for round 4, 5 for...

    2019 BB: Always in Playoff Form

    New year, new thread for BB! I loved today's press conference (and actually, I love that transcripts are a feature of patriots.com). Check out the sequence of five questions on Casserio about 1/3 of the way down (and who asks this crap, anyway?). As a bonus, he's asked: Q: What are your...

    New and Improved: The 2019 Draft Contest!

    Hey folks! We're approaching another draft, and that means...time to try our annual 'think along with Bill' game! This year's contest is (as per the title) both new and improved. On the 'new' side, please join me in welcoming SMU_Sox as co-host of the contest! And with SMU's $100 comes a new...

    Asked and...

    Has 'Ask PFW' been banished from patriots.com? It's supposed to be weekly, but I don't see anything after Feb 26. And that was a Scalavino "piece" - that's would be an unfortunate end for a good Pats column.

    ESPN Boston gone?

    My default for ESPN is www.espn.com/boston - but today, the link doesn't resolve, even though espn.com is fine. Does anyone know if they killed /boston?

    The All New 2018 Pats Draft Contest!

    Nine days until the draft, and...I'm feeling a need to demonstrate that I'm out of my depth when I try to 'think along with Bill.' Anyone else feel like prognosticating? Unlike last year, when the Pats had no 1 or 2, they now (at least as of today) have 2 1s, 2 2s, and a bunch of other picks -...

    Question on win probability

    This may not be the right place for this question, but I can't think of where else to ask it. In Sunday's Gray Cup game, Calgary led Toronto by 8 (24-16) with 5 minutes left, and were driving for another touchdown to clinch the game. Calgary completes a pass, but the receiver fumbles on the 1...

    The East is wide open!

    This is a running joke on SoSH. And yet, here's what the standings look like as of now: Bills 3-1 Pats 2-2 Jets 2-2 Fins 1-2 (note - I'd paste a table from NFL.com but I don't know how tables work any more. Please let me know how to find the new Tableizer!) History suggests that the Pats will...

    The New New 2017 Draft Contest!

    By popular demand (okay, I only got one email on it, but Pappymojo is popular, right?), it's back! Unlike last year, when the Pats had no 1, they now (at least as of today) have no 1 or 2. What does this mean? a) I'm highly unlikely to guess any of the draft picks correctly, and b) someone else...

    First annual Pats Playoff Dominance predictions thread

    Riffing off a recent back-and-forth in another thread...here's a chance to show off your skills as a playoff prognosticator and do the Jimmy Fund a solid at the same time. It works like this. Predict the total point differential (positive or negative) for the Pats in this year's playoffs. You...

    Living on the Fringe: Pats Practice Squad

    I didn't see anything about the practice squad, and new threads are good, so... Withthe signing of Vinny Sunseri and Mike Hilton (ex-Jacksonville), the Pats have a full practice squad roster. As of now, here is the full complement of 10: http://www.patriots.com/team/roster

    Summertime storylines

    "This town...ain't nothing but a ghost town..." Slow days on BBtL, with nothing happening in football. But I need something to read here! So...question for any of you who are reading this.

    The all new 2016 Draft contest! (Please reformat your submission)

    Like everyone here, I'm pissed about the first round...but there's still a draft, the Pats will be making picks, and it's time to offer an opportunity for bragging rights to a SoSHer, and some dough to a charity. So...here's the contest for 2016. You get to name 20 players who you think the...

    Celebrating What Is

    I'm sick to death of monitoring a half dozen threads to react, angrily, to yet another attack on the NEP.   So...I'd rather have a thread that celebrates the reasons I love rooting for this team.   Here's a start: BB's latest press...

    PUPs and other lists

    I haven't seen any mention of this item from ESPN: Pats put Dominique Easley on PUP list.   This sucks, and also raises the spectre of "biggest Pats draft bust ever..."   On the brighter side of things, the LBs aren't on the PUP.   No doubt there will be people coming and going from PUP, IR, and...

    Jordan Procyshen

    My first binkie in this forum, Joe Gunkel, is now off to the Sons of Mark Belanger. I'd been wanting to start something on Jordan Procyshen anyway, and with the trade, I thought the time had come. So...   From milb.com:   Full Name: Jordan Procyshen Age: 22 (March 11, 1993)...

    The 2015 Patriots Draft Predictions Contest

    Hi all - it's that time of year again. As in prior years, I'd like to continue the tradition of setting up a contest, finishing last or close to it, and making a contribution to a worthy cause in the name of a more clued-in SoSHer.   So - here we go! Once again...   You get to name 20 players...
