Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

Kyle Love’ has developed into one of the best defensive players on the roster.

Each week during the NFL season, I will be providing readers with a 15 thoughts article. These articles will be similar to those I wrote leading up to the NFL Draft in April.

It’s a random compiling of thoughts I had throughout the week, things that stood out that week, things that I learned or just random tidbits that have nothing to do with anything. In this first edition, I get caught up on all the happenings of the preseason up to this point and take a look at some roster moves that we might see in the future.

2012 Training Camp Preview: Linebackers

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Can Brandon Spike stay healthy for an entire season?

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

Training camp starts on Thursday and we begin to wind down our positional previews by taking a look at the linebackers on the current roster.

The Patriots have assembled a talented and young linebacker unit, mainly using high draft picks on the position. With roster spots limited, the linebackers along with the defensive backs, will be the toughest position to cut down.

Who will make the final 53 and will any surprise cuts occur?


Playoff Aftermath: Patriots vs Broncos

I’ve always had a theory that a win never feels as good as a loss feels bad. This one was different.

With all the build up and all the Tebow-mania, this is one of those incredibly gratifying wins for us Patriots fans.

Here are my quick-hit thoughts on the destruction of Tebow and company:


Bills vs Patriots: The Aftermath

So raise your hands if you were freaking out about that first quarter for the Patriots?

You should all know better by now that that’s just how this team operates. We’ll see how it goes come playoff time, but for now the Patriots used their “start off slow and end fantastically” to clinch home field throughout.

Here are some things I noticed today:


The Wisconsin Connection

JJ Watt NFL Draft

Should J.J. Watt and company hang on to their winter clothing?

When Bob Kraft took in a football game at the University of Florida last year, did he know that he would be watching three of his future employees? Brandon Spikes, Jermaine Cunningham, and Aaron Hernandez were all plucked from the Gator sidelines to join the Patriots in the 2010 NFL Draft.

If there is any correlation at all there between Kraft’s one college game a year that he attends and who the Patriots end up picking, then these members of the Wisconsin Badgers should starting looking at real estate in Boston.


Early Returns on Patriots Rookies: Landslide Victory

Devin McCourty

Devin McCourty is just one of the Patriots 2010 Draft Picks to make a mark this season.

Around the web and print media, excluding yours truly of course, the 2010 Patriots Draft Class was widely panned (see Borges, Ron) for having eschewed some more well-known names for guys that “nobody had even heard of” – the likes of Devin McCourty, Jermaine Cunningham, and others.

Six weeks into the season, it is time for us, and you, to weigh in on how the rookies are developing in the Patriots system.
