The Real Reason Behind Patriots Success

In case you missed it, the New England Patriots are once again standing on the top of the mountain as NFL Champions.  Just in this century alone, they have been to an astonishing nine Super Bowl’s, winning six of them.  It doesn’t matter who the competition is, what their offense or defense is ranked, where they were ranked in the regular season, or who is lined up on the other side of the ball, they just find a way to win.  Each time somehow reinventing themselves and creating a game plan that nobody saw coming.

And in each year, there has been two constants; Bill Bellichick, and Tom Brady.  On one hand, we have a former disciple of Bill Parcells …

Patriots Player Power Rankings: Week 3

Alright Pats fans, here’s the first change to the Patriots Player Power Rankings in the 2017-2018 NFL season.  And it’s a good thing that I’m putting these changes out every two weeks instead of every week, because only a couple players deserved to even be noticed after the Patriots got beat down by the Chiefs in week one.  But thank God for the Saints and that usually horrible defense, which allowed the Patriots offense to get back on track to a level close to what fans are used to seeing them at.  Granted, week two was nowhere close to a perfect game, but with injuries already piling up on all sides of the ball, I think it was about as …

Patriots Player Power Rankings: Preseason

I’ve written a few different power rankings articles in the past.  I’ve written about defensive power rankings, offensive power rankings, quarterback power rankings, and entire team power rankings.  Today, I’m going to do something different just for my Patriots followers, and do a Patriots Player Power Rankings!  This is a list of the top 20 players on the Patriots, put in order of how much of a role they will play in this years season.

To get started, I’m going to create this list with a few honorable mentions.  And let me just say one thing; there are over 50 players on this team (or will be once all cuts are made), so it’s not a bad thing to be …

Super Bowl LI Prediction: Falcons v. Patriots

We are just a few days away from Super Bowl LI between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots!  And at this time, I feel like I’ve seen everything that I need to see, and know everything that I need to know to make a purely “unbiased” prediction on the game.

How Did We Get Here

Atlanta Falcons: The Falcons are coming into Super Bowl LI with a six-game winning streak, capped off by two stellar Playoff wins at home against Seattle (36-20), and Green Bay (44-21).  The win against Seattle represented the second time the two had played this season.  The first was a loss coming by only two points on the road, in week six.  Seattle is …

JD’s NFL Quarterback Power Rankings: NFL Week 4

Alrighty then!  We are into Week 4, and I’m starting to get a little excited!  Now, I know that there are a few NFL quarterbacks out there who are not that excited right now because they are already hurt, and watching their backups play.  In which case, the backups will be the only starting quarterbacks on this list until they have returned, and once returned will claim their rightful spot in this list as I see fit.

So here it is, the first update from my preseason NFL Quarterback Power Rankings!!

32. Jimmy Clausen (Chicago) Unranked- Well, he’s a starter on an NFL team.  Congratulations.

31. Michael Vick (Pittsburgh) Unranked- Let’s see what the old dog has got left.  Let’s
