    PatFanKen Where Art Thou?

    I was talking about his upside, cause he made many terrific plays that day. I'll take the best of Mac from that game, cause it was plenty good enough to win this league. I also acknowledged the picks, but seeing as you missed that: the first one may have been his fault, but observers were...

    PatFanKen Where Art Thou?

    The Buffalo playoff game is a red herring. The Bills were a better overall team, and the loss was more about poor D anyway. Whether they lost 47-17 or 30-17, didn't matter.

    PatFanKen Where Art Thou?

    With Mac, I go back to the Ravens game early last season. He really showed his upside in that game, he and Parker went off for 180+ yards, the offense moved the ball at will, he hit throws at every level, he scrambled better than I've ever seen him do. He looked not only promising but already...

    6 games to go. How many more wins?

    if they lose 5 out of 6, they're assured no worse than the 3rd pick.

    Hard to believe this team isnt quite as bad as the 1990 team

    Pats offense has actually dominated the stats in a few games that we've lost like the Giants game: TOP, total yards, rushing yards, etc. They just continually make bad plays in the red zone.

    Bill Barnwell article on how we got here

    The last 3 drafts have been ok, with Mac Jones being the difference between a good and bad grade. And when we picked him, it's not like we missed on some other great QB we could have taken. He still could turn out to be ok, though he's really underperformed in the rz all year. It's a fine...

    Patriots Friday 11/10/23 Guten Tag

    If we end up with a top 3-4 pick, trade down 5-6 spots and pick up another high 1st and a 2nd.

    Klemm Out Indefinitely Due to Health Reasons

    This doesn't sound like Covid or they just would have said so. Sounds more serious to me for some reason. Since Cole Strange returned to action a couple of weeks ago, the OL has been significantly better. That coupled with stabilizing RT by kicking Onwenu out there. Then this past week they had...

    Patriots Saturday 11/4/23

    Both Peppers and Barmore were fined more than that for ordinary football plays, and this guy commits a flagrant head shot that knocks a guy out of two games.

    Bourne tears ACL

    I thought it might be dirty as well, as the db kind of flipped him over his leg when it looked like he could've just driven him out of bounds.

    Patriots Pregame Thread Week 8 pregame: Pats @ Miami

    A loss and the season is NOT over. After this game our next few opponents are Washington at home, Indy in Germany, then our bye week, then @ Giants, and then the Chargers at home. We will be favored in all of those games and if we win them then we're 6-6. The last 5 games are more difficult but...

    OT: NFL Suspends Donks DB Kareem Jackson 4 Games

    The guy is a headhunter, no room for that in today's game. About time!

    Patriots Monday 10/23/23

    I could be wrong but I thought the reason they picked up the flag was that it was a lateral, not that it was caught behind the LOS.

    Kayshon Boutte

    Younger fans that have seen only winning here seem to be fans of the winning rather than fans of the team. Older fans that have lived through years of really horrible teams (from the top all the way down) tend to be fans of the team, win or lose. We're trained to look for the silver linings...

    Onwenu at Right Tackle

    If I had to grade our OL by position this year prior to yesterday's game, on a scale 1-10: LT: 8 LG: 4 C: 7 RG: 7 RT: 5 Yesterday it was: LT: 8 LG: 8 C: 8 RG: 6 RT: 7 Onwenu stabilizes RT, and Sow is starting to look pretty solid in his place at RG. Onwenu may be better as a G, but overall the...

    Parker is our unperforming #4 WR

    Parker has been my biggest disappointment this year so far, has yet to show up. Has the size & skills to be much more impactful. A guy with his experience can't drop that ball in that situation. Second biggest disappointment has been Strange, mainly cause we don't have a good answer at that...

    O/T: Very sad news **** Butkus passes away

    He was the most violent linebacker the game has ever known. Total intimidator. Ray Lewis was a ballerina compared to this guy. edit: and as Ken said, he was also very skilled, fast, athletic, explosive short area speed but could also get back downfield.

    Pats trade for JC Jackson

    This is a great move, a guy who knows the system and performed well here, for a swap of a 6th & 7th two years from now. The salary is irrelevant when your top 4 CB's are all on the shelf, though reports are that LA will pay some of his 2023 salary.

    Russ Francis killed in plane crash

    Wow, that clip shows both Daryl Stingley and Russ Francis catching long TD passes. Both were amazing talents, both died too young. Francis was a great TE, 6'6" 240's, could run like a deer, catch, block. Swashbuckling persona. Part of that mid 70's Fairbanks team that got screwed by Ben Drieth...

    Patriots Injury News Thornton Dealing with 'soft-tissue' injury

    He's eligible, but is his shoulder (or whatever it was) recovered? He may need more time to heal. I'm hoping it's the opposite, that's he's been ready for 10 days and is ready to go full speed starting Monday.
