By Patrick Murnane Growing up in the 2000s in Boston was wonderful, since I never had to watch teams struggle and lose year after year. Sure, I missed some important events and players: Ted Williams, Larry Bird, and Bobby Orr just to name a few. That makes me think maybe I didn’t appreciate how amazing and rewarding the past 20 years have been in New England with 12 titles between the four major sports franchises. That success seems to be
By Andrew Bezio Currently the Patriots sit at 6-7, with three games remaining, all against divisional opponents. Now they do have a 2% chance, (que the Dumb & Dumber meme), but the road to the playoffs is slim at best. Razor slim. They’ll start with a road game in Miami (8-5), where the Patriots couldn’t even win with Tom Brady at the helm. Not to mention, the Patriots are currently 2-5 on the road this season. That doesn’t seem like
By Joe Scibelli, Esq. “I was VERY wrong about Florida.” Going back to my last article and my time on the Transfer Portal Podcast with Walt and Fonz, a lot I predicted went up in flames. If you’re unaware or didn’t read my “Week 14 College Football Predictions,” I predicted 1. Notre Dame 2. Florida 3. Ohio State and 4. Alabama. Well after week 15, 2 of those 4 are in a position that can cause a lot more chaos
By Joe Scibelli As the 2020 NFL season ascends into its final quarter, many NFL fans ask, “who’s going to win MVP during this hectic season?” With opt outs, fines, rescheduling, and a team not even being allowed to play in its own stadium, the 2020 season has been unpredictable to say the least. Unlike in past years, where the MVP predictions were easy to make, 2020 has been the most competitive race that still leaves analysists wondering who the

By Andrew Bezio In one of the most dismal franchises in NFL history (sorry Detroit), lies one of the most clever and skillful quarterbacks in recent history: former first overall pick Matthew Stafford. Should one of the most wasted careers in NFL history also be considered a Hall of Famer? Let’s dive in a little, shall we? What makes a HOF QB?: •Win/Loss •TD/INT •Yards •How was the player during their prime? •Longevity •How much did they help their team?
By Nick Newton Through 9 weeks of the 2020 season the Steelers have looked to be a legit Super Bowl contender. They came into the season with some pretty big question marks that had most people ranking them in the middle of the league. Will Big Ben return to his old self after his season-ending elbow surgery last year? Or will he get hurt and miss more time? Will Juju return to a WR1? Will James Conner stay healthy? What
By Andrew Bezio 1.) Lose. • Plain and simple. Lose. Lose as many games as you can. Just keep losing baby!! Everyone was saying, “No matter who the QB is, Belichick will keep us winning.” Your 3-5 record determined that was a lie. My inner Maury Povich. But really, there is no reason to try and win games.
