The NHL playoffs are the best of all of the four major sports in terms of teams taking their game and passion to another level. Seeds are thrown out the window as any team can win on any given night, and there is usually a strong dislike that develops between the two teams over the … Continue reading Why are the Bruins getting a free pass?
By Chris Warner New England entered the draft needing defensive help and went after it, snatching pass-rushers (Chandler Jones, Dont’a Hightower and Jake Bequette, oh my!) plus defensive backs (Tavon Wilson, Nate Ebner, Alfonzo Dennard) before snagging a receiver (Jeremy Ebert) in Round Seven. That late focus on offense continued post-draft, as the Patriots invited … Continue reading Patriots Undrafted Free Agents Review
I've gotten a few inquiries this week as to my whereabouts, though it looks like things have thrived around here thanks to the work of Ryan and Chris. To sum things up - my son was delivered a few weeks early last Friday, and since Sunday has been in Children's Hospital here in Boston. That's … Continue reading Where is Bruce?
The defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins' season came to a disappointing end Wednesday night as they fell 2-1 in Game 7 to the Washington Capitals at TD Garden. Joel Ward scored just 2:53 into overtime to give the Capitals the win. Tyler Seguin had the lone Bruins goal coming in the second period, while … Continue reading Bruins season comes to an end with OT loss, Red Sox sweep Twins
By Chris Warner Over the past week we’ve been studying potential players available throughout the NFL draft who fit New England’s needs. After much debating, head-scratching, and coffee-drinking (America runs on it, after all), we’ve decided on the following to best aid the Foxboro Footballers. As of right now, the Patriots have two picks in … Continue reading Our Best Patriots Draft Possible
By Chris Warner Let’s look at some possible 2012 additions who could bolster New England’s defensive backfield. Last season the Patriots’ lineup of DBs went through a revolving door, if said door was hooked onto some super-fast thresher. Has-beens, Never-weres and Someday-might-bes helped contribute to a consistently poor passing defense that never seemed to form … Continue reading Patriots Draft Potential: Defensive Backs
By Chris Warner Today we preview possible New England draft picks for the guys up front protecting quarterback Tom Brady. In 2012, the Patriots got surprise performances from veterans Matt Light and Brian Waters. The latter’s effort deserves special praise considering he arrived late in the preseason and ended up as a 16-game starter. All … Continue reading Patriots Draft Potential: Offensive Linemen
The Red Sox were able to snap their five-game losing streak Monday night in Minnesota. Cody Ross led the team with two home runs, including the game-winner in the top of the ninth inning, leading the Sox to a 6-5 win over the Twins. He also homered in the seventh inning to tie the game … Continue reading Red Sox snap five-game losing streak, Bruins prepare for Game 7
The Red Sox have started the 2012 season 4-10. Their pitching has been abysmal. They haven’t been able to get the timely hit. They even blew a 9-0 lead to the New York Yankees last Saturday in one of the biggest single game collapses in recent memory. Although the 2011 Red Sox started their season … Continue reading Where is the Red Sox player accountability during the 4-10 start?
By Chris Warner Today, we look at dominant pass rushers, creatures that have remained elusive to Coach Bill Belichick and his band of merry draftniks. The footballers chosen below aren’t meant as predictions (best to avoid those, judging by our track record); rather, they represent the level of talent available to the Pats in each … Continue reading Patriots Draft Potential: Pass Rushers
