Three Things to Watch This Week - Week 14

The first place New England Patriots play Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens at Gillette on Monday December 12th at 8:30 PM.


LeGarrette looks like he's floating here.

This is the first matchup we've had against a playoff caliber opponent in almost a month.  Should be a good measure of where the team is at this point.  Also, I don't particularly care for John Harbaugh.

Mitchell Power Rankings:

1) Elizabeth

2) Malcolm

3) Joe Don Baker is...

4) Joni

5) Mitchell lunar crater


Here's three guys I'll be getting defensive about tonight:

1) Logan Ryan / Eric Rowe / Cyrus Jones - Let's be honest here... Right corner has been not great.

2) Alan Branch / Malcom Brown - Both have been solid in the middle.  New England is a top 10 defense against the run this season.  Who knew?

3) Elandon Roberts - Eh.  I don't know if I've seen enough here to warrant trading Jamie Collins.  But that's just me.  I'm not in charge of those decisions.


FREE AGENT WATCH: Has Malcolm Butler, Jamie Collins or Dont'a Hightower been resigned yet?  Not yet!

Did Malcolm Mitchell have a catch last week?  Yes!  He had 8!

My prediction: Pats 27, Ravens 24

This week we have Fake Josh McDaniels filling for Fake Bill Belichick.

Bros and Lady Bros... Enjoying the holidays so far?

Great.  Put those cookies down for a minute.  Listen up.  Josh has some knowledge to drop on  you.

You ready for it?

DON'T HAVE KIDS DURING THE SEASON.

Have all the kids you want... in the offseason.  There's plenty of time for that.

Did Edelman just have a kid with his Swedish model girlfriend he's not even seeing any more?  Yes.

Are his yards per catch numbers way down this year?  Also yes.

I had to explain to Edelman that it takes nine months to make a baby.  So plan ahead on that kinda thing.  Also, how rubbers work.

We're ramping up for the playoffs, people.  We don't need these distractions right now.

Three Things to Watch This Week - Week 4

The defense still looks like poo.  Here are three guys I'm excited about watching this week:

1) James White - Please keep working him into the passing game.

2) Deatrich Wise - Whoa.  Where'd that guy come from?  He has been all over the place last few weeks.  He's been one of the few bright spots on defensive line so far this season.

3) Tom Brady - Tom won AFC Player of the Week for weeks 2 and 3.  An honor he's now received 29 times.  But if he's so good, how come he never won NFC Player of the Week, huh?


Just want to let it be known that I'm available to go in at WR if necessary.  Thank you.


My prediction: Pats 30, Panthers 24

Three Things to Watch This Week - Week 2

The defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots play Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints at Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday September 17th at 1:00 PM.

Not a great start to the season, you guys.  I'm hoping to have more of a read on this team after this week.  Signs point to no Dont'a Hightower or Danny Amendola this week.  BUT... New Orleans was even worse in week 1.  We should still be able to pull this one out.  I'm not panicking yet.  BUT ALSO... let's not lose this week and start the season 0 - 2.

Gilmore Power Rankings:

1) Lorelai

2) Artis

3) Rory

4) Stephon


Here are three players that play for the Patriots that aren't injured yet as of press time:

1) Malcolm Butler - Butler didn't have a great pre-season, but I thought he looked better than Stephon Gilmore out there week 1.

2) Chris Hogan - One catch for 8 yards isn't going to cut it.  I need to see a Big Hogan week this week (Is "Big Hogan" a saying?  It…

The Patriots won ugly last week.  The good news is... that still counts as a win.  The bad news is that it took 3 missed FGs by the Bucs to seal the deal.

I've got to be honest with you.  I felt a little bad for Nick Folk.  Going out there and yakking 3 kicks in front of the home crowd has got to be a horrible feeling.

Moving forward.  I'm going to try to be as positive as possible this week.


1) Malcolm Butler - I still feel like he's our best corner.  He's a great tackler.  And he helps out in the run game.  (UPDATE: Stephon Gilmore is out this week.)

2) Brandin Cooks - I wish they would work him in a bit more.  The dude is fast.

3) Mike …
