Three quarters worth of dropped balls can make for a close game and that was what the Patriots had yesterday against the New York Jets. You could call it an amplification of last weeks dropsies in Indianapolis as Patriot receivers let at least a dozen catches they should have made slip through their fingers. Missed first […]

Due to circumstances well within my control I did not watch the game against the Colts until last night. Good game. The Colts looked better, and Andrew Luck appeared more capable in this outing, though given their division, Indianapolis could probably go 8-8 and find its way to another playoff loss against the Patriots come […]

After their by-week the New England Patriots rolled in to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas prepared for a defense the Cowboy’s didn’t bring. Instead of their traditional 4-3 they switched up to a  3-2, a defense the Patriots had not practiced for; they suffered for it through most of the first-half. Brady was sacked 5 […]

AP U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell went too far in affirming punishment of the Super Bowl winning quarterback.

If you are a fan of rule of law and due process this article at the Washington Post puts the NFL v. Tom Brady DeflateGate foolishness into proper perspective. A suitable synopsis would be “The NFL is a Banana Republic.” Goodell is Obama, with his phone and pen, interpreting rules, process, and even evidence to […]

Apparently the footballs used in the first half of the AFC Championship game did not have enough air in them.  At half time they were checked and corrected as needed.   The Patriot-haters are trying to make something out of it but what’s to make? If true the only points Indy scored in the game were […]

I think Tebow is a good prospect for an offense that thrives on players who can perform in multiple rolls.  Tebow can run well, catch, and passes better than most other utility players who might be asked to throw the ball down-field or […]

Bad News For Jets fans…
