    What was the Patriots name after they were called the Boston Patriots and before they were named the New England Patriots?

    For about two weeks until some genius in the Pats front office realized it would end up being shortened to "BS Patriots" :)

    The answer is Bay State Patriots but it didn't hold for very long.It was universally ridiculed until it was changed.

    The Bay State Patriots....

    That name was on the outside of the original Schaefer Stadium when it was under construction. They changed the name before the stadium ever opened...
