If Devin McCourty is not re-signed, the Colts will come knocking.

If Devin McCourty is not re-signed, the Colts will come knocking.

Welcome to a new segment here at NEPD that will be running throughout the off-season.  Throughout the elongated off-season process, I’m going to pick an opposing AFC or elite NFC team to highlight their off-season outlook, and how it affects New England.  As for the first time since 2004 the New England Patriots are looking down on the rest of the league.

What better team to start with then the team the Patriots beat (killed, crushed, destroyed, emasculated, ect) in the conference championship, the Indianapolis Colts.

Let me start by saying this – Andrew Luck is a baller, point blank.  In terms of ‘most important to his team’, I believe Luck is at the top of the list. (more…)

The NFL Combine wrapped up last week giving us a little more clarity and a lot more data when it comes to projecting potential draft picks. Even though a major mile marker is in the rear-view mirror there are sill two months remaining until the draft begins April 30th. With teams and prospects jet-setting around the country to get acquainted with each other draft boards and projections will change. As we sit today, 2 months out from the draft and roughly a week and a half away from the start of Free Agency here is what the New England Patriots 2015 NFL Draft Class could look like.

Super. Bowl. Champions.  At one time in Patriots history, it would have seemed impossible.  During others, it was more of an expected right.  Nonetheless, Tom finally got number four.  And if you’re anything like me, you’re already thinking about how he will get number five.

It’s been a long difficult road since the Patriots Super Bowl 39 victory over Philadelphia.   Since then, the Patriots have won more games and division championships than any other team in the league.  But something was missing.  Every year come the beginning of February, there was a certain agony of disbelief.

On To The Draft: 2015 Patriots Mock Draft

New York Jets v New Engalnd Patriots

NEPD Editor: James Christensen

Holy hell, that just happened didn’t it? The New England Patriots’ fourth rings fits as well as the first, earned after a year full of roller-coaster emotions. Don’t expect Bill Belichick to celebrate the win too long, however.

He is most certainly “On to the 2015 NFL Draft.” Here is one way the Patriots could attack the draft this April.

Tampa Bay will get the first shot at selecting the Oregon Quarterback.

Another NFL regular season is in the books and it’s time to shift focus to NFL Draft Season. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers led by former Patriots Personnel man Jason Licht own the #1 overall pick followed by the Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Oakland Raiders. As things stand right now there is a good chance Oregon QB Marcus Mariota will be taking his talents to the West Coast of Florida, but after that this draft is filled with question marks and uncertainity. Here’s how the 2015 NFL Draft could look four months from now with one caveat — everything will change.

Bill Belichick: Dual Threat as GM and Coach

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

NEPD Staff Writer: Jason Cappell 

I’ll admit it, I was wrong. Early on in the year, it appeared as though Bill Belichick’s duties as GM had put the New England Patriots’ season at risk. However, after a few shrewd moves, Belichick has the team back on track and primed for a Super Bowl run. With risk comes reward, and while the Patriots in-season moves were not guaranteed to work out, they’ve provided the team with a lift.

At the beginning of the season the Patriots were painfully thin at linebacker, and when Jerod Mayo went down in Week 6, that need bordered on crisis. However, as the Patriots have proved time and time again, it was next man up, and Dont’a Hightower rose to the challenge and hasn’t looked back.
