Three Things to Watch This Week - Week 15

The first place New England Patriots play Trevor Siemian(?) and the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday December 18th at 4:25 PM.


Do not buy a tree from this man.

Despite Cyrus Jones's efforts to keep the Ravens in the game, that was a pretty solid win last week.  The defense played their best game of the year.

Still feeling the sting of last year's AFC Championship game loss in Denver.  I hope they go in and blow doors.

Here's three things I'm looking forward to watching on Sunday:

1) Shea McClellin - I find blocked field goals tremendously exciting.  Thanks, Shea McClellin!

2) Chris Hogan - That 4th quarter deep TD to Hogan to put the game away last week was a thing of beauty.

3) LeGarrette Blount - The Patriot offense is much more balanced than this time last year.  But this would be a great week for Blount to step up and take over.


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?  Four!  And a TD!


My prediction: Pats 24, Broncos 14

This week we have Blount Talk with Fake LeGarrette Blount filling in for Fake Bill Belichick.

I'm an actor at a small local theater.  My director is always telling me I'm in the wrong place at the wrong time.  What should I do?

You should listen to your coaches and follow your blocking.


I'm trying to get my Christmas shopping done.  But the crowds are just out of control this year!  How do you deal with large groups of unwanted people in your way?
-- Susan in New Hampshire

I usually try to get behind Shaq Mason and let him move the crowd for me.

But if you can't do that, just get behind the shopping cart and plow through that crowd.


For Christmas this year I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle.

You'll shoot your eye out, kid.

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:

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 …
