Is it coincidence or the Special Sauce? Or is it Chung?

A lot of things went well for the Pats last night, nearly every player executed well and played a good game.  Most notably Gronks.    The most notable thing to me though was having Chung back on D,...

JonnyNYC serving up the Youth on D

Defense!  D-fence!   That's right ladies and gentleman, we got one!.   We've got one and it's shaping up to be very, very good. What excites me most about this defense is their youth.  Certainly...

The Perfect Storm for SU Restoration

This year is really shaping up to a rapid acceleration of the football program.   Sure the Big East is down, WAY Down from where it was in Greggers tenure, but SU can only play the games as they...

Quin cut, Thomas Clayton signed

So I guess the OL is just fine thank you. And I guess Fred Taylor is anything but fine, surprise surprise.   I've got no illusions of Thomas Clayton doing a whole lot of good for the Pats, but...

Tell me lines, tell me sweet little lines....

I'm not sure how I feel about referencing Stevie Nicks in relation to hockey, but I would say she's a closer match to a hockey player then a playmate. Regardless, I'm curious to hear everyone's...

My Kingdon (if I had one) for a running identity (if the Pats had one)

This week, again I will get on my soap box and BEG for a running game.  By running game I mean 45-60% of the offensive snaps are running plays.   Let me be clear though, I'm not interested in...

Faulk + Torn ACL = Trouble in Foxborough

That's got to be 6-8 games minimally. The trade of Maroney certainly hurts a bit more now but really they were too different players. Question is with Faulk down out,  Morris and Taylor injury...

If it quacks like a duck...it's a duck. New England has serious issues with their Coaching staff

Mike Reiss had a great post on this today here.  Yesterday was yet another example of the Pats being significantly out couched. More then anything, this to me is the difference between the Dynasty...

The battle in the trenches will define week 2

To me what gets lost in the shuffle of Monday nights game is the fact that both the Jets and Ravens have exception offensive lines.   The Ravens and Jets are also two of the most aggressive teams...

So um...how do you gameplan from THAT?

The Jets Defense is tough and is not going to be as easy to score against as the Bengals.   From what I saw last night the TEs could be a huge factor in this game as Heap had a solid night for the R...

The Biggest Edge (Pressure) Belongs to SU this Saturday

within a boxing match, the boxer with nothing to lose usually seems to have the edge over the won with the weight on his shoulders - if he can survive the first 3 rounds.  A few early jabs landed,...

The ultimate edge (pressure) favors Syracuse on Saturday

What will it take for a week 2 win? What would it mean?

What will it take?  A lot of things not in any particular order: 1.  Take the crowd out of the game 2.  Control the clock 3.  Minimize mistakes on offense 4.  run early to open up Play Action...

Welcome to the 2010 Red Sox Playoffs! Starting early (August)? This may be as good as it gets.

There you have it.  To me this weekend is the Sox playoffs for the season.  If they play well and take 2 of 3 they are barely in hunt. If they sweep they are squarely in the hunt. Anything less and...

Lets get into the trenches. How do you really measure the strength of an Oline? Stats that matter

This offseason I've been curious to see the value of Mankins, how the OL might play without him etc. And in realizing this could be an issue, I also realized I was not aware of a true measure of a...

When are the new Uni's going to be officially announced

Okay....so who's going to be on the left wing this year?

And I thought 7 years was too long? 17 years - how can that be legit?

I don't get how the NHL could allow this Devils contract to go through, or why it makes sense to them? 17 years and $102M for a player who will be 44 at the end of that deal?   Nuts! $6M minimal...

What if Savard wasn't resigned in December and didn't get hurt in Feb?
