Come Schill or high water, next year Curt is getting into the Hall of Fame

Curt Schilling, friend of the Sports Chowdah, came up roughly 5% shy of induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame this year. Derek Jeter and Larry Walker were the only members of this year’s class. Jeter was a no-brainer (no qualm with him not being unanimous), Larry Walker is a nice player, numbers are better […]

Patriots Notebook: Pass defense, special teams and our picks for the Pro Bowl

This felt a lot like the Washington game. Bengals hit a big play, kept it close in the first half and couldn’t hang in the second half. But why would they want to? Cincinnati came into this game 3 losses away from drafting Heisman winner Joe Burrow. True a win against the Patriots would prove […]

Patriots Notebook: A lot changed for the Pats Sunday night

Last night the Patriots lost their spot as top seed in the AFC which means home field advantage throughout the playoffs. As we go along in the 2019 season, that appears to be of paramount importance. The Ravens and Patriots are tied record wise at 10-2, with Baltimore holding the tie-breaker over the Patriots (because […]

Patriots Notebook: Pats ‘D’ shuts down the Boys while coaching battle wasn’t close

Nasty. Wet. Cold. Windy. That is November football in the NFL. The image of the league is built around illustrations of Dick Butkus covered in mud and Ray Nitschke covered in blood. While these are images of prosperity, but they’re not pretty. Gridiron glory rarely is. With Tom Brady as the face of the Patriots […]

Patriots Notebook: That win was U-G-L-Y. And that’s OK.

On a day when you’re going to hear a lot of “It ain’t always pretty” and “A win is a win on the road” it’s important to remember that the Patriots improved to 9-1 with their 17-10 win in Philadelphia Sunday. But, that game was uglier than a driver’s license picture taken on July 5th. […]

Patriots fans: Would you trade the 28-3 comeback win to erase the “Helmet Catch” Super Bowl loss?

Sterling and I have a mutual friend. We’ll call him “Rob.”Because that is his real name. He asked the following question last week on Facebook: “Patriots Fans: Would you be willing to swap Edelman’s miraculous catch and the 28-3 comeback Super Bowl win over the Falcons for Tyree dropping his miraculous catch in 2007 solidifying […]

The good, the bad and the horrible from the Patriots loss to the Ravens

On Sunday, the Patriots lost their first game since December 16, 2018 on the same day that the Miami Dolphins won their first game since last December’s Miami Miracle vs New England. And no matter if you are playing the Baltimore Ravens or those previously winless Miami Dolphins, you just cannot spot an opponent a […]
