Game Analysis

Philip Tor | Pats Milita Once again Roger Goodell and his band of idiots at NFL headquarters have outlawed a Patriots specialty. Remember the plays where Jamie Collins or Shea McClellin would leap over the offensive line like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible, then block the field goal/extra point?   Yeah they can't do that anymore. New rule: Unsportsmanlike conduct/leaping...

Phil Tor | Pats Militia Now that the greatest comeback ever is in the books, and the celebration is almost over, everyone and their mother is trying to figure out how the Patriots came back to win the Super Bowl. The most obvious answer is the Falcons defense simply collapsed, which is true, but you can't take anything away from...

Taylor McCloud -- Pats Militia (Disclaimer: I'll have more in-depth pieces coming all throughout the week.) https://twitter.com/Patriots/status/828448759633813505 https://twitter.com/Patriots/status/828460062557470720 https://twitter.com/Patriots/status/828451643163295744 The New England Patriots are world champions. I know that's a pretty lame way to start a blog like this, but it is, without a doubt, the most important thing I want you to take away from this. Everything else I'm going...

Taylor McCloud -- Pats Militia https://twitter.com/Patriots/status/820487590570770433 https://twitter.com/SportsCenter/status/820627866740293632 I've been trying to write this for hours, but I just haven't been able to get anything going. However, I think I just figured out why. All morning long, I've been trying to come at last night's game from 'a win is a win' standpoint --kind of just accept a sloppy victory as just...

Philip Tor | Pats Militia Although we're almost at the start of yet another New England Patriots playoff run, I wanted to explore a question that has been eating at my brain over the past season. After his great start in replacement of the suspended Tom Brady, Jimmy Garoppolo showed his unique skill set to a number of suiters across...

Taylor McCloud -- Pats Militia https://twitter.com/Patriots/status/808534667829907456 Last night's game happens every year. Some AFC team comes into Gillette looking to knock the Patriots off and all of the analysts think it's possible.

You could have called it flat-out ugly, but you know what? A win is a win, and contrary to the belief of many, I think this team needed a couple of games like this. Would...

Philip Tor | Pats Militia This game has all the makings of a snoozer. Injuries, the 4pm start, the 3-7 Jets, Ryan Fitz-Loser, and crappy weather This is not what I would call the formula for an exciting football game. But you know what? We get to wake up today and watch Tom Brady play football, so be happy. The...
