The Patriots could find themselves in a tricky position if they start slow this year.

If you’re tired of reading about the dreaded ‘deflategate’ and how New England cuts another cornerback once a week, you have come to the right place.  Eyes On The Competition returns post-draft to breakdown the AFC East, and how things could wind up next year after the draft makeover.

The Tom Brady suspension is still up in the air, but it is safe to assume he will at least miss SOME time.  One game?  Two games?  Personally that’s how I think it will fall.  But who knows, four games is still in play with Captain Touchback hearing the appeal. (more…)

The national holiday that is the NFL Draft is just around the corner.  If you’re anything like me, you have looked at 4,291 mock drafts, 782 big boards and filled out some countless mock drafts on your own.  Not because you are actually thinking that is how the real draft will go, as we know it takes just one trade to throw a whole entire mock draft off.

In the past it was the Colts.  The natural geography and Rex Ryan would scream it was the Jets.  But in recent playoff years, the Baltimore Ravens have been the Patriots’ biggest rival come January, and arguably the Pats’ biggest competition to earn the AFC crown.

Last year’s divisional round playoff game was arguably the greatest in Gillette Stadium’s history.  The only game to compare in my opinion was the 2011 AFC Championship game against…the Ravens.

I’m not sure if Joe Flacco is in cruise control throughout the regular season, or just simply doesn’t care.  Maybe he plays against himself every week in some undisclosed fantasy football league. (more…)
