Just as everything has been turned upside-down this year, so too has Boston sports. The Red Sox were an absolute disaster, the Bruins and Celtics found themselves exiting stage left early from what seemed to be glorious regular seasons and the Patriots, who at this time last year were 10-1 are a measly 4-6 and languishing in 3rd place in the AFC East and might miss the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and risk having their first losing season since 2000, Belichick’s fir
Currently, the Seattle Seahawks look to be the leading contender to bring the services of AB to the gridiron one more time but that is only one of a supposed handful of squads who may be placing calls? As the NFL heads into Week 7, the Antonio Brown sweepstakes has begun once again. The All-Pro Wide Receiver’s suspension is slated to end after the Week 8 games and he looks on track to gain re-instatement to the league which would allow any of the 32 teams to jockey for signin
Patriots suffer positive tests again as Colts become another team to report its first positive tests. The New England Patriots have canceled all football operations today in the wake of more positive tests. The team announced that two new players, one of which we know to be center James Ferentz, meaning this is not Newton, Gilmore or the two practice squad members, received positive tests this morning. They have closed off the facility, all players and staff were sent home an
UPDATE: At 12:25pm the NFL announced that tomorrow's game has been cancelled. According to multiple reports the Patriots have announced that Cam Newton has been placed on the COVID-19/reserve list after testing positive for the virus.
The Patriots have been conducting mass testing and re-testing and so far believe there is no further spread among the players, staff or within the organization. The Chiefs have announced that backup QB Jordan Ta'amu, who rose to notoriety with
Image C/O Cleveland Browns Ok, so what if the Patriots make a trade with the Cleveland Browns but the player they receive isn’t Odell Beckham Jr.?
It’s possible that Cleveland might be willing to dispense with Jarvis Landry and this might potentially be a better pickup for New England. Yes, OBJ carries the bigger notoriety but Landry comes with the bigger stat sheet and better overall percentages year-to-year than OBJ.
Here’s why Newton to Landry might possibly be better:
CAM NEWTON ROLLS FOR 2 TD'S AND EDELMAN SHINES IN 21-11 WIN OVER MIAMI. The Patriots 2020 regular season began with an eerie silence throughout Gillette Stadium as there were no fans packing the Patriot Place complex in Foxboro, MA on Sunday, but by the end of the 3 hour festivities that were Week 1, the Patriots were in a familiar place, 1-0 and atop of the AFC East.
The new man under center, Cam Newton, who came over from the Carolina Panthers on Free Agency took the dubi
An SFBN Special Report - Part 1 of 2. Providence, RI - As we come towards the last week of August, we continue to reflect on the bizarre nature of the year that 2020 has been. Where we normally would be gearing up for the college and high school sports seasons, we instead find ourselves questioning if or when students might actually even return to their school buildings and campuses. Some colleges have allowed portions of their student bodies back on campus while others have
Foxboro, MA - The end of the first week of full training camp for the New England Patriots brought us the first instance of Cam Newton at the Gillette Stadium microphone, albeit with those of us in the press corps at a virtual social distance.
As the new era of the Belichick legacy begins, post Tom Brady, we find out where the mindset of the "next franchise man" (hopefully!) is during his integration to a Super Bowl Championship team.
“I have to prove to myself, that’s a d
Image c/o Getty Images Thursday saw a shocking turn of events in the storied history of Washington's NFL team who is set to change its name after 87 years of being known as the Redskins. Late Tuesday evening some interesting Twitter messages began surfacing from varying sources including ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Peter King at PFT that a strongly worded and difficult report regarding the front office workings of the organization was about to drop with some very serious allegat
Image c/o of NBC Sports Boston The New England Patriots clearly won the weekend by announcing the settlements of two major contract grievances, that of the alleged $9 mil owed to ousted WR Antonio Brown, which was settled for $5 and the NFL finally crediting back the Patriots their unpaid contract amounts for former WR and now deceased Aaron Hernandez. The movements allowed the Patriots, who were at the low end of space to now walk away with roughly $7.8 mil in space. Belichi
via MLB / Fox Sports / Boston Red Sox As the clock turns towards the second half of 2020 and many of us find ourselves due to the Covid-19 pandemic solely watching sports on television this summer, rather than attending games, we take a moment to look back in history at how this love affair with television and sports began and how we got to where we are today. Television debuted to the masses of the United States at the 1939 World Fair held in New York City when RCA head Davi
via NFL.com Former Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has come to the hallowed halls of Foxboro.
After his departure following the end of the 2019 season from the Panthers, the rumor mill began spinning that Newton may perhaps end up in a backup-mentor role to heir apparent Jarett Stidham. Even with the Patriots having a veteran QB in Brian Hoyer on the roster, Belichick and the Kraft family felt that wasn’t enough. Newton has seen his fair share of the Patriots over the year
By Mike Has In our latest exploration into Covid-19 and sports, we exam the dilemmas fans face on deciding whether to attend games this year. Six words. As the opening to one of the most popular television shows ever starts “are you ready for some football?” I remember when the Hank Williams version included “Rock’n Randall” in it for admiration for Randall Cunningham. Like the song the National Football League will have to undergo a remix/redo for the upcoming season and may
